Saw II: Uncut Edition - October 24

Sorry for the delay in news, but I was returning some video tapes. Speaking of returning video tapes, I just returned an old porno called BACKSIDE TO THE FUTURE. In it, a woman travels back in time and has sex with her Mom, her Dad, and herself. Bitchin'! She becomes freaked out, has an orgy with the aforementioned family members and the orgy also includes her present day husband who went back in time to look for her, though it was never explained how the Delorian made it back to present day to transport him back in time. Some things you've gotta overlook. What does this have to do with Saw II: the Uncut Edition? Absolutely nothing; but if your segue doesn't exactly segue, you gotta roll with it.

The Green Mile (SE) - November 14

It's good to see solid special edition treatment for solid movies, with packed to the gills extras and not these so called "special collector's" editions filled with nothing but fluff like "Green Mile's Mouse: The story they didn't want you to know - A mouse relates his trials and tribulations of the onset chaos between...." Well, you get the idea. Michael Clarke Duncan is awesome in this. I only say that so he could get his foot off my throat.

Scarface: Platinum Edition - October 3

If you've got a memory like me (let's hope you don't), you forgot that milk DOES NOT belong in the cupboard. But one thing I do remember is that some of the extras on this "Platinum" Edition (as opposed to Uranium or Titanium) has some of the goodies that were available on the prior release of the SCARFACE special edition. Doesn't look like the Plutonium Edition includes that documentary on how it changed the rap game. Because....you know....that shit is worth telling.
