Beerfest - December 5

Doing junkets in a bar for a flick called BEERFEST seems only right. But just imagine if the press junket for a flick like SCARFACE included chilling in a Miami hotel, sipping Singapore Slings and doing mountains of coke. Now that sounds like a great time! That is until someone thinks you stole their wallet and threatens you with a knife and you hear the same story from some Cuban for nine hours straight. Check out our reports on the New York junket HERE and the Detroit junket HERE. Drinking 'til 3 in the morning playing beer pong for a press junket? Man, I can't wait until my script, HOOVERING COKE OFF A DEAD HOOKER'S ASS, is finally optioned. I SO can't wait for that press junket.

Bugsy (SE) - December 12

After much delay with "are they releasing it? are they not?", Barry Levinson's classic gangster tale is finally making its way to your local DVD store in December. I'm a little bummed that a commentary wasn't included with this extended edition, considering I've read some forums that mentioned that Annette Bening did in fact record a commentary track. Then again, forums also report shit like a certain acting legend (who's name rhymes with Back Chicholson) likes to have hookers defecate on a glass table while he lies under it. The table I mean. Stupid, dirty forums.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend - December 19

Maybe it's me, but I love Uma Thurman in a comedy. Such a departure from the usual stuff she does. MAD DOG and GLORY, if you haven't seen that, you need to. Most of my friends say she's just a tall blonde who always looks like she just ate a lemon. Whatever, dudes. Uma's hot but she's way too tall for Luke Wilson. Send her over ol' Johnny Boy's way. That's a mountain I'm willing to climb.


  • Extended Shark Sequence
  • 5 Deleted Scenes
  • Music Video: Molly McQueen “No Sleep 2nite”
  • Widescreen & Full Screen transfers (Flipper Disc)

Feast - October 17

Well, it seems like years since the Project Greenlight series featuring FEAST ran, but it's finally hitting shelves in a couple of weeks with an unrated release. Extras for this will include five deleted scenes, outtakes, two featurettes called Horror under the spotlight: The Making of Feast and The Blood and Guts of Gary Tunnicliffe and a filmmaker commentary track. Wasn't Project Greenlight practically "the making of FEAST"? And if it were physically and biologically possible for two men to conceive a child through natural means (i.e. the ol' "in out/in out"), wouldn't the love child of Jim Gaffigan and Philip Seymour Hoffman look like FEAST director, John Gulager? Discuss.
