The Transporter 2 - January 10

I was a fan of the original Transporter and Jason Statham in general (cool bald guy), but the sequel to me looks like the writers wrote the screenplay immediately after watching Man on Fire. It just stinks of it; from Statham bodyguarding and driving a kid around, to the kid getting kidnapped, to me falling asleep dead drunk in the theatre(?!). Hey, it happens. I'm not particularly proud of it, but it happened, so let's just move on before my mom catches wind of this. Please?

Red Eye - January 10

If anything, I think the early artwork for Red Eye looks really f*cking cool. It's tense, claustophobic, and you get the feeling something really bad is going down. It also looks like me grabbing my lady friend's hand when we were re-watching The Ring the other day. What can I say, the movie scares the hell out of me. Unfortunately, most thought Red Eye was a heaping pile of cow poo and will probably keep their distance from it. But that one dude from Batman Begins who, as Frank Sinatra would say, "Looks like a broad" has a really creepy demeanor, and Rachel McAdams is pretty bomb, so maybe there's something worth saving here. But probably not.

Snatch (SE) - January 3

Maybe someone can explain why Snatch is getting another special edition release. The last two editions were perfectly fine, and moreso, so why there's another edition to be released is beyond me, and hopefully you. Maybe it's the upcoming release of Ritchie's new flick, Revolver. Or not. DVDAnswers is reporting that the new special edition will include features from the prior to editions along with a collectible booklet and audio CD/soundtrack. Well, bully for you, motherf*ckers, you get a booklet. Granted, the soundtrack is pretty pimp but Jesus. We'll update you when the official specs for this is released, so stay tuned to JoBlo.com for that and pictures of beautiful women dominating men.

"You see that chick? No, the other one; the Tomb Raider chick? I totally hit that shit."

Ferris Bueller's Day Off (SE) - January

The special edition of Ferris Bueller has one of thee worse special edition titles ever: "Bueller....Bueller....Edition." Just what the f*ck does that mean? The Tommy Boy: Holy Schneike Edition, okay, that was bad but it kinda made sense, and that's stretching it. The Bueller...Bueller....Edition is keeping me from buying it when it hits the streets, purely because of it's dumb f*ck title. Had it been just "Special Edition", I would've been all like, "damn, there's a Ferris Bueller Special Edition, I gotta pick that shit up." But no. Crap! Anyway, there's no specs for this yet, but stay tuned and hopefully they'll change the special edition title. Yeah, okay. If you're curious to see the horrible artwork, peep that shit HERE.

Also works when meeting your girlfriend's parents.

War of the Worlds



Bewitched: Nothing hotter than Nicole Kidman as a witch. Or, anything really.

House of Wax: Contrary to popular belief, not a documentary of the Playboy Mansion.

Last Days: By no means, a film about Kurt Cobain, no matter how much he looks, sounds and acts like him. No way.
