Crash - September 6

Hey, Matt Dillon in what looks like a pretty good movie. The last time this happened, he was doing it for Johnny, then he nailed Denise Richards and Neve Campbell, trifecta-style in Wild Things and then he stalked Cameron Diaz as good ol' Pat Healy in There's Something About Mary ("She's a deuce, deuce and a half, not bad.") Okay, so he hasn't exactly disappeared. Matt's put on a couple LB's hisself but with a cast like Don Cheadle, Sandy Bullock, Keith David and Tony Danza (!?) surrounding him, we can hopefully overlook that. The DVD release will have an introduction and commentary with writer-director Paul Haggis, a making-of featurette and some trailers.

"Hey, you're Tony Danza. I remember you from such movies as.....as.....don't tell me don't tell me...."

The Big Lebowski (SE) - October 18

Hey, at least re-releasing classic Coen Bros. counts for something. Or maybe not. The last few Coen Bros. flicks have missed that "umph" even though Intolerable Cruelty wasn't as bad as most say. Come on, how funny was Billy Bob in it? "I mean, I love you like a son of a bitch." That's good shit. No specs have been announced, only that the special edition will come in seperate widescreen and full screen formats. You're out of your element, Donny.

A sacred Jesus ritual of licking balls.

The Simpsons (S6) - August 16

The Simpsons seasons keep plugging along with season 6 and the new box set is a great departure from the other seasons that were released. Two words: Big Ass Homer Head. Okay, that was three words, my bad. We'll update you when we the full list of specs are available.
