Delays

  • Envy has been pushed back from August 10th to September 28th. Now you'll have to wait an extra month to completely ignore it.
  • The Dazed & Confused/Fast Times two-pack has been pushed back a whole two months and is now being released November 14th. Bummer, dude.

    Notables

    Blazing Saddles (SE): Worth it for the "fart" scene alone. 6/29

    Spider-Man vs. Doc Ock (Animated Series): Somehow Tobey looks more like a cartoon than the Spider-Man here. More so without the mask. 6/29

    The English Patient (CE): Mr. Minghella continues to put the "ooze" in snooze. Thanks dude! 6/29

    GI Joe (S1/P2): He is, after all, the Real American Hero...like Ron Jeremy. 6/29

    The Perfect Score: Alternately titled: The Perfect Bore. 6/29


    Shannon Elizabeth asks, "Does my ass look big in this?"
