The Latest Announcements

History of Violence - February 28

I was pretty bummed that I completely snoozed on catching this in the theatre, being that I'm a huge Viggo Mortensen fan (as is my lady friend, although for a whole other reason). Viggo could pretty much make any movie interesting (28 Days) and was the best part of A Perfect Murder (and not just because he nailed Gwen Paltrow). He also tried to spoil the world's day by playing Big Daddy Doomsday himself, Lucifier, in The Prophecy with an ice cold presence that even sent chills up Gabriel's spine. The dude is also an accomplished poet and musician, a true renassaince man. That's enough nuthugging for one day (or week), but if there was any doubt as to picking this up, the commentary from Cronenberg alone should be able to swing your decision. Maria Bello's hot too.


  • Feature commentary by director David Cronenberg
  • Deleted scene with commentary by director David Cronenberg
  • An Acts of Violence documentary
  • Violence's History: United States Version vs. International Version - Featurette
  • Unmaking of Scene 44 - Featurette
  • A Too Commercial for Cannes featurette
  • Theatrical trailer
  • 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 Surround tracks

Elizabethtown - February 7

Unfortunately, no specs were released for Cameron Crowe's latest, but you can find the cover art below. February is turning out to be the month for cool DVDs, so show that special someone how much you care about them by giving them a DVD that only you would like.

North Country - February 21

Amazingly, Charlize Theron is already driving home with the Oscar. Crazy, right? All kidding aside, I wouldn't be surprised if Ms. Theron received a nod, and why not? The movie looks like typical Oscar fare. Also, Charlize is the hottest miner we've ever seen. Except for our boy Cletus of course. It's the handle-bar moustache. Presented in 2.40:1 anamorphic widescreen with English and French Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks, the DVD extras will include deleted scenes and documentaries and so far, that's about it. If it changes, we may let you know.

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (SE) - March 14

I might be the only he-bitch around who's a huge fan of Deuce Bigalow. I can't say the same for the sequel because I haven't seen it, mostly because it looks like shit. But damn if the Eddie Griffin interview we did wasn't the funniest interview ever. Basically, man-pimp Eddie did it for the money and for the chance to party in Amsterdam. Who wouldn't? The special edition, called "The Little Black Book Edition", will be available in anamorphic widescreen, with an English Dolby Digital 5.1 track. Extras include a Making The Deuce documentary, a video diary by director Mike Mitchell, and deleted scenes. Now don't make me he-bitch-man slap ya!

Remember that old wives tale about doing a certain something so much it makes you blind? Well, it's different for superheroes.
