The Latest Announcements

All the King's Men - December 19

Just a quick little update today for you cats today, Sean Penn's latest was received horribly by, seemingly, almost everyone. Yikes. And I don't know what's with the Sean Penn trend of yelling and crying and shit and calling it "dynamic". I don't hear anyone calling Pacino "dynamic" when he's yelling "She's got a great ass!"


  • Deleted Scenes & Alternate Ending
  • Making of All The Kings Men Featurette
  • Shake Hands with the Devil - Does power corrupt? The cast weighs in on politics, corruption and why films and on-stage theater dealing with these issues have always been intriguing
  • An American Classic - A brief biographical look at the Pulitzer Prize winning author Robert Penn Warren, author of “All The The King’s Men”
  • The Legend and Lore of Huey Long - This documentary investigates the colorful politician who provided the inspiration for Sean Penn’s character Willie Stark
  • LA. Confidential: On Location with All The King’s Men - Hear how the cast and filmmakers absorbed the distinctive culture of Louisiana to bring greater understanding to this classic story

The Descent - December 26

THE DESCENT seemed almost like a surprise hit. If anyone has seen it, Strike Back below, because I'm curious what the average fan has to say about it. Specs for the standard DVD release include a Director's Commentary with the cast, trailers. The Uncut Edition gets a second director's commentary with the crew, a making-of featurette, deleted and extended scenes, a storyboard/scene comparison, a stills gallery, cast/crew bios, some outtakes and an interview with the director.

Brokeback Mountain (SE) - December 26

Are the Brokeback jokes over? Man, you people (including me) know how to really beat a joke into the ground. But I'm over it, mostly because it hits so close to home. This new special edition is packed (!) with tons of extras including a featurette called "On Being a Cowboy" which strangely turns into a featurette about being ON a cowboy. Sorry, couldn't resist.
