BEETLEJUICE: 20TH ANNIVERSARY DELUX EDITION - September 16th

There's nothing better than a re-released DVD that uses the same cover as the previous DVD, which used the same cover it had on VHS, which used the same cover-art as its theatrical poster. Why? Because the cover for BEETLEJUICE is flippin' classic, that's why! So I'm happy to see that there's no giant head of Michael Keaton, with Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Winona Ryder's smaller floating heads in the background here. Only downfall? For a 20th Anniversary release, it's fairly light on the extras... then again, it's doing better than the first bare-bones release, so who's complaining???

The Goods:

  • Newly remastered
  • Three Beetlejuice cartoons (A-Ha, Skeletons In The Closet, Spooky Boo-tique)
  • More TBA

    STARSHIP TROOPERS 3: MARAUDER - August 5th

    It's good to see Casper Van Dien back in action, even if it's in a STD sequel to the movie that supposedly made him a 'star.' And by star, I mean that when it came out some 10 years ago, Dien had the potential to be the next action hero... sadly, that didn't happen. But now he's back, rockin' the classic Rico character, fighting bugs for the federation, and leading a whole new generation of roughnecks into battle. You wanna live forever??? Plus... a music video!

    The Goods:

  • 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
  • Filmmaker commentary
  • Director and cast commentary
  • Evolution: The Bugs of Starship Troopers 3: Marauder Featurette
  • Enlist: Marauders Mobile Infantry Featurette
  • "It's a Good Day to Die" music video

    SUPERNATURAL: SEASON 3 - September 2nd

    Another year, another season of this supernatural TV series out on DVD. The cover's cool, I suppose, but as I'm not a huge fan of the series (never seen an episode), I can't say that it does anything for me. These two dudes are the leads in a couple of classic 80s remakes coming out next year (FRIDAY THE 13TH, MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3-D), so in that respect, the cover is kinda cool... especially if both films end up kicking ass. Then it could be a whole 'remember when' scenerio, after they've hit it big and become horror movie superstars. Or not...

    The Goods:

  • Anamorphic widescreen
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1
  • 5 Discs

    DVD Covers:

    BRUTAL MASSACRE: A COMEDY July 22nd Because the cast looks amazing, and I'm dying to see how something called 'Brutal Massacre' is a comedy.

    SURVIVE THIS! July 8th Because no matter what the quality of the final product is, the cover is great!

    FRIDAY THE 13TH August 5th - Because I love the 80s... and I love Friday the 13th even more!

    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!
