The Latest Announcements

Crash (SE) - April 4

What an excellent, excellent movie Crash was. I'm happy to see a movie with such edge, cojones, and a non-filtered, refreshing take on race relations get awarded with nominations (and win some of them) that I'm starting to hold out hope Hollywood hasn't completely lost its mind. Saying that, I've watched Crash once and personally, just me speaking for myself here, I have no intention of ever watching it again (maybe for the Jennifer Esposito booby shot). I would lump this together with Magnolia and Requiem for a Dream as movies on my list that completely and emotionally challenge and drain you, and that giving up a couple hours to totally bum yourself out for days doesn't really seem like a fair trade. But it is great watching Cruise say, "Respect the C*ck". Yes, that would be the same Tom Cruise who jumps on couches that don't belong to him.

Walk The Line (SE) - March 7

Continuing on the theme of bumming you out, Cash's version of "Hurt" and "Personal Jesus" kinda makes you miss your grandfather who died a long time ago. But then you take a shot of Knob Creek Whiskey and then you forget that you ever had a grandfather. And that you're not wearing any pants. There will be a single disc edition of the new Cash flick, as well as a double disc collector's edition. Check here later as specs become available but for now, peep the cool ass covers below.

Godzilla (SE) - March 28

Other than this being released the same day as King Kong, there's really no rhyme or reason why this should be released. Blue Oyster Cult had that song "Godzilla" but I don't think they'll be touring in support of it or anything. I'd say this was a pretty useless double dip. We'll update the column with the specs when they're released, but at least the cover art is not bad. Not good, but not bad either.

The Chronicles of Narnia - April 25

The only extras included on the single-disc (and also on the Collector's Edition) will be a commentary with director Andrew Adamson and Cast, and a second commentary with the production team. The specs for the Collector's Edition can be found below. Bottles and cans, just clap ya hands, just clap ya handsss.

Waiting: People who work in restaurants always f*ck with your food. That's why I refuse to it. And that's why I have the arms of a sixteen year old girl. 2/7

Just Like Heaven: Other than the title being a really good Cure song, everything else is forgettable. That includes you Greasy Reese. How many times do you think Meg Ryan was offered this? 2/7

Growing Pains (S1): I know she was on a completely different show, but how about Stephanie from Full House being a meth head? Man, a date with her and the pipe, and it would be the best twenty bucks I've ever spent. 2/7
