The Latest Announcements

The Good Shepherd - April 3

Robert DeNiro's directorial debut A BRONX TALE is a classic in the mob/crime genre, even though I thought it was just okay. The kid from that flick (also starred in THE SOPRANOS) is in jail because he and a buddy tried to hold up a cop. His buddy got killed, he went to jail. Don't you kinda wish that happened to Matt Damon? He tries to emulate Jason Bourne, but he gets amnesia and forgets he's an actor. That would be sweet. SHEPHERD will be available in separate Widescreen and Full Screen editions and include 16 minutes of deleted scenes.

Pan's Labyrinth - May 15

Guillermo Del Toro's latest managed to snag the top spot on many critic's Best of 2006 lists, including our very own JoBlo (read it HERE) and Arrow (read it HERE). That's enough to get your ass out there and get 'er done.

The Darren Aronofsky Collection - March 27

Cool dude Darren Aronofsky will be getting his own collection released by Lionsgate that'll include PI and the unrated director's cut of REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, a movie so brilliant and emotionally cutting , I've only seen it once and have no intention of seeing it again. Extras for REQUIEM include a directory commentary, a cinematographer commentary, a making-of documentary, deleted scenes (with optional director commentary) and two featurettes (“Memories, Dreams and Addictions: Ellen Burstyn interviews Hubert Selby, Jr. (author of the novel by the same name)” and The Anatomy of a Scene).

PI's extras include a director commentary, an actor commentary, a behind-the-scenes montage, lost scenes and a music video. The set will be available as a collectable foil 'O-ring' package.

"Hi, I'm Darren Aronofsky, and you're not."

Man About Town - February 13

I hadn't even heard about this until the writing of this column. MAN ABOUT TOWN is about a "top Hollywood talent agent whose life begins to fall apart when he learns that his wife is cheating on him and his journal full of Hollywood secrets is stolen." Wow, now I really wish I hadn't heard about this. If new movies aren't remakes, then they're about Hollywood itself. In the immortal words of Jimi Hendrix, "'Scuse me while I take a bunch of pills and drink a bunch of alcohol and vomit while I'm sleeping and die."
