The Latest Announcements

Goodfellas (SE): - August 17

Lord, I'd like to take this moment to give thanks. And also to bless You and Your Little Boy's heart for shining down the brilliant light that is the release of the Goodfellas Special Edition ($26.99). All those mornings when I cursed your name in between hurls in my toilet, spending night after night at seedy strip clubs and pounding cheap whiskey...Well Lord, I was just fartin' around. I didn't mean to curse you. I swear I didn't.


  • Audio commentary with Martin f*cking Scorsese plus Cast/Crew
  • Commentary with Henry Hill & Ex-FBI Agent Edward McDonald

Now, don't blow that load just yet. That same day you can buy the cooler than cool, six-disc Scorsese Collection Giftset which aside from the Goodfellas (SE), includes the under-appreciated After Hours, Alice Doesn't Live Here Any More, Mean Streets (!!), and Who's That Knocking At My Door?. Oh and it has Marty's commentary on each. Click here for covers and menushots. Now tell me that set won't look good next to the Kubrick Collection ;) From Warner Home Video Giftset $59.95, $19.95 each

What do you mean there's no ice? You mean I've gotta drink this coffee hot?!

Cold Mountain: - June 29

Jack White contributed five songs to this run of the mill period piece. And then beat up some dude that was running his mouth in a Detroit club. But not even Jack’s crazy sideburns and the lovely Ms. Kidman could save this movie. Not to mention it stars Renee Zellweger…in a really weird hat. Ugh.

Hidalgo: - August 3

Apparently, Aragorn though it’d be a good idea to get out of Middle Earth for a while and find somewhere to get drunk and race horses. The Battle for Middle Earth is exhausting work. So he grabbed an Indiana Jones-style hat, a horse called Hidalgo and entered a race. A very loooong race.


  • Sand & Celluloid – behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of the film
  • America’s First Horse – a historic look at the Spanish Mustang
  • English DD5.1 and DTS 5.1 Surround

Friends Finale: Yes, already unfortunately. 5/11
