INGLORIOUS BASTERDS - December 15
Nothing says Merry Christmas like watching Brad Pitt and company beat the living shit outta Nazi's while planning a scheme that involves blowing up Hitler. Quentin Tarantino proves why he's still a writer/director to reckon with, and Eli Roth proves he can't pull off a Boston accent but CAN pull off swinging a bat. I'm glad they went with this cover art--it owns! Look at what just popped on my X-mas list this year...
A PERFECT GETAWAY - December 29
David Twohy's 'bad things happen while on vacation' sleeper hit A PERFECT GETAWAY is getting the post-holiday release, and that's just fine with me! The best part of it is they're releasing the director's cut of the film in both rated and unrated versions. I recall hearing the director's cut was even better than what was released in theaters, so no doubt you'll want to check this shit out. Plus, a new take on the 'floating heads on the cover' genre!
9 - December 9
The marketing machine of 9 continues to amaze me with even more 9 related shenanigans for its DVD release. Released on December 9th (!), just 9 days (!!) after my 29th (!!!) birthday. How'd they know that? I'm tellin you, Focus Features has been planning this shit for years! Quick turnaround too, just 3 months (to the day) of its theatrical release (3 months, 3X3=9!!). Here's hoping it makes more than 9 billion dollars (that's 9,000,000,000, with 9 zeroes). Then their plan would be complete.
GAMER – January 19th – Because I said it was awesome--and I meant it! Gerard Butler owns!
BEYOND REMEDY – December 15th – Because there's remedy, then there's beyond remedy!
4 Film Favorites: Thrillers - January 12th – Because GHOST SHIP's opening sequence was awesome, and GOTHIKA had its moments. Consider the rest as bonus time-wasters.
