THE COOK - April 1st

I haven't heard of THE COOK before, but any cover featuring a bunch of hot chicks and a close-up of some serious boobies has to be awesome, right? Not sure if it's about a dude who likes to cut up and cook the hottest women in town, or something totally different - but if there's any truth to advertising, count me on board for this one! Definitely worth a rental... and a clearance bin blind-buy fo sho.

  • 2.35:1 aspect ratio
  • Dolby Surround 2.0
  • Dolby Digital 5.1
  • Audition footage
  • Behind-the-scenes featurette

    THE HIGHLANDER: THE SOURCE - February 26th

    You may be asking yourself 'Did they really make another Highlander TV series spin-off movie?' and the answer, my friends, is yes. Not that I have anything against the show, but do we really need another medicore Highlander movie? The cover is fairly generic for the HIGHLANDER universe, and could probably be the same one for ALL the HIGHLANDER movies and you wouldn't even know the difference. Let's just hope the source isn't pile of poop. Get it? Source. Ha!

    The Goods:

  • Widescreen
  • Dolby Digital Surround Sound
  • “HIGHLANDER: The Process” – a mega-length behind the scenes documentary
  • “Storyboard to scene comparisons
  • “HIGHLANDER: THE SOURCE photo gallery
  • “Tribute to Bill Panzer, creator and producer of the Highlander series
  • “HIGHLANDER video game sneak peak

    ALIENS VS PREDATOR - REQUIEM - April 14th

    Maybe one of the biggest disappointments of 2007 is hitting DVD just under 4 months after it's initial release. For millions out there, this is our chance to see how bad AVP-R really way - as throwing away $10 to see it in the theater just didn't seem worth it at the time. Both rated and 2 disc unrated editions, the cover's aren't anything to write home about, though the unrated edition is looking pretty slick. What can I say, they pulled the Predalien design off pretty well... too bad the rest of the movie blew donkey balls (or so says the majority of the few who have actually seen it).

    The Goods:

  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
  • (Rated Edition) Commentary by directors Colin and Greg Strause and producer John Davis
  • (Rated Edition) Second commentary by creature FX designers/creators Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alec Gillis.
  • (Unrated Includes Commentary, plus…)5 behind the scenes featurettes -Prepare for War: The Making of AVP-R
    -Fight to the Finish: The Making of AVP-R
    -AVP-R: The Nightmare Returns
    -Creating the Aliens
    -Crossbreed: The PredAlien
    -Building the Predator Homeworld
  • Multiple stills galleries on the creature design and sets
  • Digital copy download feature
  • AVPR trailers (including the Restricted Audience trailer)

    IN THE NAME OF THE KING - April 14th

    I think they should rename April 14th to Turkey Day, as not only does AVP-R hit that day, but so does the latest from the master of schlock, Uwe Boll. Based on a video game, and consisting of a cast of talented actors, it still couldn't be saved from being totally ridiculous. Burt Reynolds as a knight in shining armor? You're kidding me, right? Wake me up when this beast hits cable, and maybe I'll check it out...

    The Goods:

  • 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
  • Deleted and extended scenes
  • Extensive behind-the-scenes featurette
  • Preview trailers

    DVD Covers:

    Honorable Mentions:

    HEADLESS HORSEMAN –April 29th – Because the cover rocks and the storyline is inherently awesome.

    THE SISTER OF URSULA –March 25th – Because a mostly naked chick, a giant knife, and a cover that oozes blood equals grade A entertainment in my book.

    HITCH-HIKE – April 29th - Because it stars David Hess, that crazy dude from THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT!

    That's all for this week! Stay tuned every week for your latest DVD news, and as always, feel free to shoot me an email (ammongilbert@joblo.com ) for any & all DVD news, scoops, and easter eggs!
