Kingdom of Heaven (Director's Cut) - May 23

Say what you will about the flick Kingdom of Heaven, but you gotta admit that when Ridley Scott has a director's cut of one of his films, it's usually chock full of TONS of fun. And I'm talking Silent Bob TONS of fun. If I listed all of the features, this page would be longer than.......well, I don't know, it'll be long, trust me. The director's cut has a run time of 191 minutes, while the theatrical version came in at about 144 minutes. CLICK HERE for complete specs of the four disc edition.

Protestors line up outside an ancient McDonalds, demanding the return of the McRib.

Fun With Dick & Jane - April 11

Fun with Dick and Jane looked about as funny as watching a rabid dog eat a helpless bunny, and then a ptyerdactol comes out of nowhere and eats the dog. Actually, that seems like a better movie. I don't know, I guess I just miss the old Jim Carrey. You know, the one who wouldn't think twice of talking with his butt. I miss that Jim Carrey.

The Patriot (Extended Edition) - April 11
