The Latest Announcements

The Amityville Horror - September 27

Ryan Reynolds and Co. had me thoroughly convinced when I visited the set, that this remake would blow the original out of the water, and freak everyone out. What it did though was bum everyone and their momma out. That's too bad, since Melissa George is smokin' and Ryan Reynolds is one funny dude. Oh well.

Sean Penn in one of his coolest roles, and is years ahead of his time with his white man's afro hairdo. Luis Guzman also shows up and steals every scene, papi.

Lords of Dogtown - September 27

I've always found skateboarding to be pretty pimp, only I'm too much of a sissy to skateboard. I whine when I get a paper cut for Christsake. The documentary Dogtown & Z-Boys was stellar, with the aformentioned Sean Penn narrating, but something about LOD seems too cookie cuttery, too MTV-ish. Which spells c-r-a-p. Imagine the visual take David Fincher would've utilized if he didn't drop out. The Unrated version also includes extras found on the PG-13 version, don't you know.

Theatrical PG-13 Version:

  • Deleted Scenes
  • Branching Featurettes
  • Director and Cast Commentary
  • Multiple Featurettes
Unrated Extended Cut Version:

  • Blooper Reel
  • Includes over 4 minutes of Never-Before-Seen Footage
  • Director and Cast Commentary Uncensored!
  • Original Z-Boys Commentary
  • Dogged on Dogtown Feature

The Warriors (SE) - October 4

Sweet. I think every little kid growing up has, at least once in their pre-pubescent lives (or not so pre-pubescent?) dressed as a Baseball Furrie on Halloween. Or uttered the words "Can you dig ittttt?!" I used that line while giving a presentation on Post-Modern Architecture back in school. Nobody responded as I expected. Losers. No details have been given but stay tuned to JoBlo.com as they become available.

West Side Story; eat your heart out.
