Deliverance (CE) - September 18

You know how you're at the bar with all your buddies, drinking and have a gay ol' time, and it's at that point where you guys are tanked where someone says something "brilliant" or says, "let's plan a trip." Well, this is what happens when a bunch of guys "plan a trip." You end up getting a friend or two killed and one of them gets treated like an altar boy who accidentally dropped the communion. By the way, the actor who made Ned Beatty squeal like a pig, has a website called Squeallikeapig.com. No bullshit.

Kung Fu Hustle (SE) - August 7

Now, this I saw for the first time the other day and holy shit did I have a blast. I'm glad this "Axe Kicking Edition" is being released with some more extras because I couldn't get enough of it, and I usually tend to stay away from marital arts movies. Sorry, martial arts movies.

Perfect Stranger - August 21

Yeck. I think it's time for Halle Berry to give us another Academy Award winning "getting banged" session before casting agents completely lose faith in her. The only thing grosser than an old hag Halle Berry getting it on is the cover for this. Oh and the only extra, which is Virtual Lives: The Making of Perfect Stranger. Hip hop hooray, hoooo, hey....
