Actually it's never been released. It's still in limbo out there waiting to be released. That 2008 that it's credited for is because of a film festival that it played at. But I don't count film festivals as a proper release. Either movie theaters or dvd. And it's not even out on dvd unfortunately. Like I said, it's still waiting out there to be released.

There really is no best or worst for me as of yet. Both Season of The Witch and Green Hornet were average or okay at best. This year is starting out slightly better than last year when the first film out of the gate i saw was Legion and that was a complete stinker. As the year rolls on, i'm sure there will be a clear distinction between what is gold and what is crap.

Then I googled the film...I adore James and Kotlowitz but somehow I missed hearing about the leadup to this, so today is like Christmas. Thanks, good sir.

I haven't seen any films in 2011
that's also a reflection of how bad it's been so far

it'll get better though with the several plus adaptations coming.
