I gotta be honest, I haven't seen HARD BOILED. It takes a lot to be able to admit something like that. Since I'm admitting stuff, I might as well admit the affection I do have for white doves and K.C. and the Sunshine Band. No big deal, I just want to put on my my my my my boogie shoes.

Bug - September 25

Though he's made some sub par stuff lately, William Friedkin still rocks. One of my favorite movies he did was the classic TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA with William Petersen and Willem Dafoe. Definitely a must see. BUG is about a spooky motel room and Ashley Judd is in it. Sold. The DVD consists of a Feature Commentary with William Friedkin, the featurette BUG: An Introduction, and A Discussion with William Friedkin .

Misery (SE) - October 2

Everyone knows the infamous ankle smashing scene in MISERY. The only thing I can think that would be good for is to switch Kim Kardashian with James Caan, that way she can't run away. Or do the two-step. See the can her? Yowza.

  • Feature Commentary by Director Rob Reiner
  • Feature Commentary by screenwriter William Goldman
  • Featurettes:
      Misery Loves Company
    • Marc Shaiman's Musical Misery Tour

Troy sucked balls

How come "Director's Cut" are always just longer, slower version of the theatrical releases???

Isn't there a director out there that believes he's movies could do better with LESS minutes???

That Lost artwork has been out for a while now. Love the color and cast arrangement. Although it is strange they would put a Jacob-related easter egg despite him becoming a story at the end of the season.

overall...very nice. the troy dvd i'm excited for, and even though it didn't fully follow the story of the "illiad" (or however the hell it's spelled), it was a very enjoyable flick

the main thing i'm excited for is 'lost.' looking closer at the cover of the box set, i wonder if theres going to be any more little "easter eggs" of sorts on it (i'm talking about the "jacob loves you" thing on the front).

I still have

My Criterion edition of Hardboiled, I hate having to double dip as well as The Killer, you can't watch these in English subbed, doesn't feel right.

As for director cuts, isn't there supposed to be an ultimate of 300? Troy might be good to check out the extra footage.

Hard Boiled is one of the best action films of all time, I have this pre-ordered on amazon myself.

On the other hand, 3 hours of Troy? How is this possible? And WHO will watch it? Really.
