Hello.

Here are 217 DVDs coming out Tuesday or soon thereafter, according to Amazon. I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to less than 1% of these!

First, the

PICK OF THE WEEK: The Films of Kenneth Anger, Vol. 1 (The W at Amazon) - I hope I'm still going to heaven when I die, even if I DO recommend this



FILM ON DVD

MOVIES PEOPLE WATCHED:

The Guardian (Widescreen Edition)
The Guardian (blu-ray)


Saw III (Unrated Widescreen Edition)
Saw 3 (Unrated Full Screen Edition)
Saw III (Rated Full Screen Edition)
Saw III (Unrated Edition) (blu-ray)

NEW VERSIONS OF THINGS YOU ALREADY BOUGHT:
Brokeback Mountain (Two-Disc Collector's Edition) - oh, so THAT'S why he hosted SNL
Brokeback Mountain (Combo HD DVD and Standard DVD)
Fiddler on the Roof (2-Disc Collector's Edition) (1971)

CRITERION:
Yojimbo & Sanjuro - Two Films By Akira Kurosawa - Criterion Collection
Sanjuro - Criterion Collection
Yojimbo - Criterion Collection
Monsters And Madmen (The Haunted Strangler / Corridors of Blood / The Atomic Submarine / First Man into Space) - Criterion Collection

MOVIES NOBODY WATCHED (OR, WATCHED RECENTLY):
Invincible Iron Man - get this: it's animated
Marvel Animated Features Gift Set includes "Invincible Iron Man" PLUS "Ultimate Avengers: The Movie" PLUS "Ultimate Avengers 2" PLUS a BUST
This Film Is Not Yet Rated - an in-depth (maybe a little TOO deep) look at the MPAA film ratings board - go figure, this film would have received an NC-17!
Jesus Camp - speaking of still going to heaven...Ted Haggard's recent tribulations place part of this film in an unintended, yet much more cynical light
Cocaine Cowboys - THEY say "The incredible true story that inspired 'Scarface' and 'Miami Vice'" and I say "well..."
SherryBaby (2006) Maggie Gyllenhaal as a different kind of ex-con
Sasquatch Mountain (2006) Lance Henriksen (presumably) does NOT play Bigfoot
Room (2005) indie - executive produced by Michael Stipe! Yes, that's the most interesting thing I could find about this film!
The Puffy Chair (2005) indie road movie dramedy about a recliner
Time of Her Life (UK, 2005) ghost story
Max Havoc: Curse of the Dragon (2004) Max vs. the Yakuza - I like the Yakuza
P.O.E. (Point of Execution) (2004)
Black Jack (Israel, 2004)
Crooks (2002) aka "Errors, Freaks & Oddities" - retitled, released to cash in on a "Lucky Louie" connection? (Jim Norton's in it)
Kounterfeit (1996) Bruce Payne, Corbin Bernsen, Hilary Swank
Last Light (1993) Forest Whitaker, Keifer Sutherland
Jacknife (1989) Robert DeNiro, Kathy Baker, Ed Harris
Rubberface 1983 Canadian telepic features an early (ie unfunny) Jim Carrey appearance...aka "Introducing...Janet"
Starcrash (Italy/USA, 1979) Christopher Plummer, Caroline Munro, Marjoe Gortner, and...yes...David Hasselhoff. I'm pretty sure this is my brother-in-law's favourite movie.

Welcome to Durham 3hr documentary about gang violence in the NC - directed by Christopher "Play" Martin (really!) - includes bonus CD
Cowboy Del Amor (2005) documentary of American men finding Mexican mail-order brides

Matthew McConaughey Collection (Failure to Launch / How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days / Sahara) - "NO, NO, NO..." - Matthew McConaughey
The Color of Olives (aka El Color de los Olivos) (Mexico/Palestine, 2006) - documentary of life in Palestine
Tailspin Tommy In The Great Air Mystery (Serial) - 12 part serial from 1935

MYSTERY MOVIE OF THE WEEK:
Devil Dog (2006) - what's scariest of all is I can find nothing on this film - for all I know, that's a yoga pose



MOVIES THAT MUST HAVE RECENTLY COME INTO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN:
Efficiency Expert (1992) & Loophole (UK, 1981) Anthony Hopkins, Russell Crowe film also known as "Spotswood" PLUS Heist flick starring Albert Finny and Martin Sheen
Efficiency Expert
Loophole

Dead Before Dawn (1993) & Fantasies (1981) Still another pair of TV movies - Cheryl Ladd's husband is abusive and hiring assassins to kill her! PLUS Bo Derek is 16 and maybe naked! assuming it's not a typo and this is actually the *1982* TV movie about a killer threatening a soap opera cast - WILL YOU GAMBLE THE $2.99 TO FIND OUT???
Dead Before Dawn
Fantasies

Conflict (1973) & St Tammany Miracle (1994) TV movie based on Brian Moore's "Catholics," starring Martin Sheen - PLUS (for no additional cost) a movie about girls' basketball at a Catholic school starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar AND Soleil Moon Frye AND Steve Allen! I CANNOT make up a cast list like that, people! If you don't think you could handle them both, they are available individually:
Conflict
St Tammany Miracle

Summer City (1977) & Crazy Streets (1987) Australian "thriller" includes a minor role for a young Mel Gibson PLUS one of Alec Baldwin's first appearances in an NYC film where Debbie Harry has, like, three lines (aka "Forever Lulu") - if $3.99 breaks your bank, spend $2.99 for one of these:
Summer City
Crazy Streets

Deadly Justice (1994) & Taureg: Desert Warrior (1984) - one's a TV detective flick directed AND STARRING Brian Dennehy; the other is a Spanish/Italian/Israeli production starring Mark Harmon. Sure, put 'em together on the same release, why not. If you are as outraged as I am, however, you can purchase them individually:
Deadly Justice
Taureg: Desert Warrior

MOVIES ABOUT WHITE FOLK AND BLACK FOLK:
Mr & Mrs Loving (1996) / Mandela & De Klerk (1997) / A Gathering of Old Men (1987) - three TV movies which appear to have nothing in common except they're all on this DVD release and they all contain racial plot elements
Inside (1996) & Sally Hemings: An American Scandal (2000) - another two TV movies heavy on race
Resting Place (1986) & Nightjohn (1996) & River Niger (1976?) - methinks somebody at Platinum Disc has a rather unhealthy obsession



ROCK AND/OR ROLL MOVIES:
Don't Knock the Rock (1956) / Rock Around the Clock (1956)
Don't Knock the Twist (1961)/ Twist Around the Clock (1962)

IT'S ROBERT MITCHUM WEEK:
Robert Mitchum - The Signature Collection (Angel Face / Macao / The Sundowners / Home from the Hill / The Good Guys and the Bad Guys / The Yakuza)
Angel Face (1952)
The Good Guys and the Bad Guys (1969)
Home from the Hill (1960)
Macao (1952)
The Sundowners (1960)
The Yakuza (1974)



DIRECT TO DVD:
Apocalypse and the Beauty Queen (2005)
GamerZ (Scotland, 2005) - NERD ALERT Click Here (gamerz-the-movie.com)
Living Til the End (2005) - better than living 'til the middle, I guess
Troubled Waters - (2006) Jennifer Beals is still workin'!
Relative Strangers (2006) Danny DeVito, Kathy Bates, Ron Livingston - man discovers he's adopted, embarks on...oh, you've heard it before. Supposedly, really awful
Spin (2007) - it's like "The Mambo Kings," only with Reggaeton instead of mambo - and chicks instead of dudes - actually, it's NOTHING like "The Mambo Kings" - never mind
Night Skies (2007) - a TRUE STORY of UFOs and ALIEN ABDUCTION makes for a REALLY BAD MOVIE
Sabbath - VERY independent "goth zombie" film - Click Here (schottenfilmworks.com)

Apocalypse 20 Movie Pack - list (millcreekent.com)
Beastly Butchers - Kill Syndrome, Season in Hell, Goblin, The Lunar Pack, The Tenement, Deadly Culture

UFOs: We Are Not Alone... - 2 discs - six "documentaries" plus the film "UFO: Target Earth" (1974)

Ultimate IMAX Collection - ten movies which probably won't look as cool on your screen (Africa: The Serengeti, Alaska: Spirit of the Wild, Amazing Journeys, Antarctica, Australia, Bears, Great North, Lost Worlds: Life in the Balance, Ocean Oasis, Ocean Origins)

If anything, this movie is worth getting for the original music composed by Jan Hammer, which could be used to score last year's Michael Mann movie proper.

This one intrigues me. I'm going to the store to look for the "Extras" DVD, but if it's not there, I'll buy the two online.
