The Latest Announcements

Jaws (SE) - June 14

I suppose it's about time for a 30th Anniversary edition, huh? It's definitely held up, I mean the shark still looks real and all. More real than the one in Deep Blue Sea. You're probably wondering what specs are included; well, so are we but don't get your hopes up, word around the campfire is that the special features are likely to be the same as the old laserdisc edition. But stay tuned as more information trickles out, baby.

Bill & Ted's Most Excellent Collection - July 12

Damn. Party on, indeed! I'm a traditionalist, so I'm only a fan of the first one, but all my friends (all two of them) are all creaming in their underwear over this. The specs actually look kind of lame, so you wonder about the motivation behind this release. It's not like anyone famous came out of this movie. Sheesh.

Be Cool - June 7

I guess no one is surprised how this would turn out. Had they kept Get Shorty director Sonnenfield and screenwriter Scott Frank, things might have been different. Then again, Be Cool, the novel, isn't really good source material to begin with. Compared to other Elmore Leanord novels of course.

American Psycho/Audition - June/August

First up, Lions Gate is releasing a "Killer Collector's Edition" of Jason Bateman's other brother, Patrick, and his ode to 80's greed, American Psycho on June 12. Specs will include: audio commentary track (with director Mary Harron and screenwriter/actress Guinevere Turner), a second commentary track with various cast & crew, deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, "Postcards from the 80s" new documentary and on-set interviews. All presented in anamorphic transfer with Dolby Digital 5.1.

And next up is one of the most f*cked up movies I've ever seen (aside from FAT ALBERT) from the king of far east, f*cked up movies, Takashi Miike. This edition brings you a new introduction and on-camera interview with Miike, select scene commentary with Miike, a Q&A at the American Cinematheque, a Tour of the Egyptian Theatre, an interview with author Ryu Murakami, a photo gallery, trailers. Me love it long time!

"It's okay; this won't hurt a bit. Ha! I'm messin' with you. You are so f*cked!"
