HITMAN - March 11th
I heard mixed reviews around this latest video game adaptation, but honestly, the biggest reason why I didn't see it is because I'm not a big Timothy Olyphant fan. Actually, he was about the last person I would have picked to play the Hitman, as he's just not bulky enough or badass enough to do the character justice. But what the hell do I know, I didn't even give the damn thing a chance! Now I can, in both a single and double disc unrated edition... yay!
LEPRECHAUN TRIPLE FEATURE - March 11th
Just in time for St. Patty's Day, the first three LEPRECHAUN movies are comin' at ya in a 'franchise collection' that will leave you wondering... what about the other three films in the series?? Given, with Leprechaun here going to space, then to the hood, then back to the hood... they feel like different franchises all together, but come on! A full forced compilation is in demand here! Weak-sauce audio and full frame plague this set, but if you're gonna go with cheesy 90s horror, you might as well rock it like it's VHS!
AWAKE - March 4th
There are seven deleted scenes attached to this DVD, and I don't think I'm the only one hoping that all seven of those scenes features Jessica Alba... naked. I mean, there's plenty of fodder for a few extra showers scenes, sex scenes, waking up naked scenes, and my all time favorite: jogging in the rain completely naked scene. Not that they have anything to do with the movie or with the storytellig process... but come on, there's always room for an extra scene or two like that! The cover art isn't half bad here (compared to the theatrical), though not nearly cool enough to blind-buy.
BATS: HUMAN HARVEST - March 11th
BATS wasn't a great movie, but it wasn't the worse of it's kind either. So color me surprised to see they made a STD sequel - I guess it was more successful than I thought! I'm guessing there's no Lou Diamond Phillips or Dina Meyer back in action for a second go-round, but I'm sure there's plenty of... bats... to pick up the slack! I'm somewhat confused as to the title, as I'm not exactly sure what 'Human Harvest' means, but if we're lucky, we'll be seeing some sweet half man/ half bat mutants wreaking havoc all over town. Wait... dare I say, a Bat-Man? Call in the DARK KNIGHT movie tie-in police!
NIGHTMARE MAN –March 18th – Because Tiffany Shepis is in it... what more do you need?!
