FRIDAY THE 13TH - June 16th
When FRIDAY THE 13TH hit theaters a few months back, there was a divide among those who caught it. Some really liked it, and some really hated it. I, for one, hated it. Was it because it fell short of its potential? Yes. Was it cause it wasn't scary? Yes. Was it cause it lacked T&A? No. Actually, this sucker was full of T&A, and for that... I applaud it. And gore. But let's face it, it lacked the fun factor and it wasn't really a remake. And is it just me, or does the Blu-ray cover kind of blow? Seriously... do we really need to see his eye?
Blu-ray Version Only
HORSEMEN - July 7th
This flick came and went in theaters like a fart in the wind, which really bummed me out cause I've been wanting to catch a Platinum Dunes flick that wasn't a remake. THE UNBORN was fun enough, but I thought for sure that HORSEMEN would deliver the goods. Plus, who doesn't like Dennis Quaid? Even when he's in crap like THE PARENT TRAP, I still dig him. He's just that cool. Plus, he was in INNERSPACE.
CHILDREN OF THE CORN - July 28th
It's funny, I just re-read the original Stephen King short story this flick was based on. In the intro, King pretty much says the movie version was garbage. It's been so long since I've seen Linda Hamilton and those damn smalltown kids running around that I honestly don't remember if it was good or not, but you know what? The short story was good. And on Blu-ray, regardless of content, I'm sure it'll look amazing. At least they kept the original cover art!
KAIDEN - June 30th
Any cover featuring a chick holding some dude's decapitated head is A-OK in my book. To find out it's from the director of the original RINGU, and I'm so totally there. I'm not much for period pieces, which is what this appears to be a possible exception... because of that head. That's not a way to get ahead in life, now is it?
TRAPPED June 2nd Because when you're looking for fun and excitement, look no further than fighting bears and other animals!
ROAD HOUSE June 2nd Because you gotta be nice until it's time to not be nice--and you know it's gonna look nice on Blu-ray!
KICKBOXER - July 9th Because even JCVD's rippling muscles look amazing on Blu-ray.
