Team America: World Police - May 17

"JoBlo.com, f*ck yeah!"

The Machinist - June 7

The Machinist, incidentally, turned out to be one of JoBlo's top 10 movies of 2004. Here's to hoping that Christian Bale delivers in spades on Batman Begins and loosens up to all the fanboy attention he'll no doubt be receiving. Let's see if he doesn't get all "Patrick Bateman" on your asses.


  • Commentary by Director Brad Anderson
  • 8 Deleted Scenes
  • The Machinist: Breaking The Rule
  • Theatrical Trailer

    Aside from the noticeable scar tissue and gaunt features of his face, Bale realized that his nose hairs desperately needed a trim.

    Hoop Dreams (SE) - May 10

    Hoop Dreams is a phenomenal documentary, the premiere documentary in my humble opinion. It's packed with more guts and heart than a dinner with Hannibal Lecter and how the story weaves in and out of it's narrative is nothing short of inspirational. Here is a doc well worth the ol' Special Edition double dip.

    • Two audio commentaries with stars Arthur Agee and William Gates and filmmakers Peter Gilbert, Steve James, and Frederick Marx
    • Segments from Siskel and Ebert tracking the acclaim for the film
    • Music video
    • Trailers
    • Booklet featuring a dedication to the Gates and Agee families written by Steve James
    • New essays by writer and cultural historian John Edgar Wideman and Sports Illustrated senior writer Alexander Wolff
    • Michael Wise's Washington Post article "Looking Back at Broken Dreams"
    • 1.85:1 Anamorphic Transfer
    • Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo audio

    License to Drive (SE) - April 19

    Ha! Indiana Sev was just telling me the other day what a great flick this is, so I'm finding it a little bit spooky that Anchor Bay is releasing a special edition of this. It's like Indiana Sev has some secret, Jedi-type powers and shit. Motherf*cker's like Obi-wan; no, motherf*cker's better than Obi-wan!

    • Audio commentary with director Greg Beeman and writer Neil Tolkin
    • Deleted scene (yes, just one. Really?)
    • Interviews with Corey Haim and Corey Feldman
    • Trailers
    • TV spots
    • Screenplay via DVD-ROM
    • 1.85 anamorphic transfer
    • Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 tracks

    Sweet Valley High (S1): I have no idea what the hell this is but it involves delictable, blond twins that conjures up an image including said twins, cheeze whiz and my snorkel. Yowza! 3/8

    Columbo (S2): Peter Falk has a glass eye. I swear to God he does. How cool is that? 3/8
