The Latest Announcements

World Trade Center - December 19

Iffin' you saw Oliver Stone's latest, hit us up with a Strike Back below. I'd read the forums but reading forums can actually make you sterile. Did you like the flick? What did or didn't you like about it? Was it respectful? Does Nicolas Cage pull off the moustache look? How do you feel about Oliver Stone wanting to do another WTC movie? What would you do if I sang out of tune, would you stand up and walk out on me? Here are the special edition extras. The standard release includes everything on Disc 1.

The Wicker Man - December 19

It's a Nicolas Cage one-two punch today. You get Nic with moustache, Nic without. It's too bad he doesn't do more commentaries. On the plus side, we at JoBlo.com love Leelee Sobelioni and her very understated love pillows. Of course that has nothing to do with anything, that's what we at JoBlo.com do. Okay, that's what I do.
