The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning - January 16

I guess it's pretty rare to have seperate Rated and Unrated editions sharing the same special features, but such is the case. In this installment of the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE series, we find baby Leatherface using Playschool knives to cut off the faces of his Play-Doh victims. Awww, how cute! And they say humanizing a serial killing, sociopathic cannibal is wrong. For shame!

Gridiron Gang - January 23

The Rock sheds a few pounds (as in the weight measurment, not money. So, that would be "Stones" for you European folk, I guess. The weight measurement, not the band) and all of the sudden people think he's on crack or has cancer. But the truth is that even though The Rock looks like he's on the wrong side of the crack pipe, he'll still crush anybody with his eyebrow. Besides, I think "The Rock" was a bad nickname. I'm kinda partial to Dwayne "Bring the Pain" Johnson. Sounds much better. X-Zibit also stars in this after school special movie about troubled football players and manages NOT to pimp anyone's ride.

"Hey, should we pimp his ride?"
"Naw, but we should pimp his lady."

Passion of the Christ (SE) - February 6

"So this Jew walks into a hotel with a box of a nails and says, 'Put me up for the night'...."

According to the Ho-Slayas over at DavisDVD.com, next February you should be seeing The Passion of the Christ: The Definitive Edition. This two disc set will include the theatrical release and The Passion Recut , the version where Jesus takes LESS of a lickin' but keeps on tickin'. You know, until they really crucify him.

Although a commentary track with Mel Gibson is not fully confirmed, you can look forward to deleted scenes, a making of documentary, featurettes, art galleries, trailers and a short film entitled, "How Jesus Got His Groove Back." It'll be presented in anamorphic widescreen with Aramic Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Surround tracks with English Subtitles.

"Holy shit, dude, does that hurt?"


The DaVinci Code (SE) - Nov 14

I thought the DAVINCI CODE would've performed a lot better than it did at the box office, considering you couldn't take a city train without someone reading the damn book. But alas, talking in a soft tone and having moose-like hair that would make Patrick Swayze proud couldn't trick most of you into buying a ticket. Good on you.

. The Groomsmen - Nov 14

I guess I'll never understand how Ed Burns continues to make his own movies. Nothing against the guy personally, as I thought he was great in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, but other than that flick, starring in his own movies where he convieniently casts himself as the "cool guy", he's pretty useless in my movie viewing world. That being said, our very own Quigles reviewed the flick here , calling it a "chick flick for dudes" that works. Hmm, interesting. Buy it HERE.

King Kong (SE) - Nov 14

Something seems so inherently racist about KING KONG. A big black ape who has a major jones for a hot white women. Talk about a broad generalization (even though one of my black friends, Drew, loves KING KONG solely for that reason). Next thing you know, there's going to be a flying burrito that's too lazy to eat itself. Being Mexican, I would actually watch that. If only I could get my lazy ass off the couch. The three disc mammoth of a DVD set is chock full of cool shit for all of the KONG enthusiasts. Read JoBlo's review of the film HERE. Buy the three disc special edition set HERE.
