The Latest Announcements

We'll be giving you the official specs in the next few days. For now, check out the cover art below and try not to stare too hard at Jack Black's dong.

Click - October 10

Somebody told me the other day that Larry the Cable Guy's Health Inspector is the new Ernest Goes to (insert setting here). I like to think of Adam Sandler is right up there, vying for that spot. You know that it's just Adam Sandler getting into situations and when things get tense or whatever, he'll slap on his Bobby Boucher-under bite expression and hilarity will, undoubtedly, ensue. Let me guess, in CLICK, he'll fast forward through situations he doesn't want, slow motion a hot girl bending over but in the end realize that the small moments were really what mattered in life which will lead to regret. Yeah, I'll be hitting Skip button all day on this.

Slither - October 24

I would watch this movie based on the cover alone. Creepy! Reminds me of the time I had tapeworms. Oh and it stars HENRY himself, Michael Rooker. Kick ass. James Gunn (DAWN OF THE DEAD, SCOOBY-DOO) wrote and directed the film about a small town taken over by an alien plague. Sweetness, it's like American Idol.

Garfield: Tale of Two Kitties - October 10

There was no other reason to list this other than it pisses Jim Law off and it shows that Bill Murray doesn't get paid enough on all the cool flicks he does. That's all right, Bill, it's a trade off we're willing to make. I hate Garfield, and nobody has expressed my disdain for the fat cat more eloquently than real life pirate, Maddox, found HERE.
