ICQ: # 1 Posted on 9.2.07 1131.07 | Instant Rating: 9.00 Hello. This week - rather, the week beginning Tuesday (2/13), there are 357 DVD listings added to the available ranks of the mighty Amazon.com, only five of which are versions of "The Departed." Now, I'll tell you right off the bat that 93 of them probably aren't actual new releases, but new to Amazon. You'll see them near the bottom in small print. Go ahead and gloss over those. Yeah, you knew "The Departed" was coming out - but did you also know the Hong Kong triology which inspired it is available? There's also a couple of incendiary documentaries, Rob Schneider's television career, too much Mozart, John Cena before he was John Cena, an import from Mongolia, real Mexican luchadors, Camel, Finesse, Michael Waltrip wearing an apron, Ron Perlman in animal makeup AND a double feature from Chesty Morgan - who is a living double feature, if you catch my drift. BOING. ALL ABOARD As always, I'm hoping something here will get you excited, or maybe you'll learn something's coming out that you had no idea was coming out (or was EVER coming out). Please feel free to add your own two cents and recommendations in a reply if you've seen these before and are/are not longing to see it again! If you buy something and watch it later, we hope you'll add a review, either in a new thread or in a reply here! Hover over titles for Amazon magic and (hopefully) a look at the cover! Exclamation points! We begin as always with me arbitrarily selecting a PICK OF THE WEEK: Performance (The W at Amazon) (UK, 1970) James Fox, Mick Jagger - Notorious film originally received an "X" rating for sex and drug use (just how much was simulated and how much really happened when they filmed? You decide) and cemented the Stones' reputation - now gets an "R" but is apparently almost totally uncensored COLLECTIONS TO CONSIDER: Mr. Moto Collection - Vol. 2 (Mr. Moto's Gamble / Mr. Moto in Danger Island / Mr. Moto Takes a Vacation / Mr. Moto's Last Warning) - amazingly, you used to be able to like these movies without being considered a racist! Peter Lorre stars in his last four films and for completists, 1965's "Return of Mr. Moto" is included as a bonus Evil Animals Triple Feature Day of the Animals (1977 - Christopher George, Leslie Nielsen), Grizzly (1976 - Christopher George), Devil Dog: The Hound of Hell (made for TV, 1978 - Richard Crenna, Kim Richards) - surprisingly good indie horror films - "Grizzly" in particular smashed indie money records at the time, and was #1 until "Halloween" in 1978 BIG MOVIE OF THE WEEK: The Departed (Two-Disc Special Edition) The Departed (Widescreen Edition) The Departed (Blu-ray) The Departed (Combo HD DVD and Standard DVD) The Departed (Full Screen Edition) COINCIDENTALLY: The Infernal Affairs Trilogy (Infernal Affairs / Infernal Affairs 2 / Infernal Affairs 3) (Special Collector's Edition Box Set) - the Hong Kong trilogy that inspired "The Departed" - 2 is a prequel and 3 is the sequel - got it? (SUGGESTION: Watch "1" first) Or, waste your money and purchase them individually. The first film came out in 2004; the other two are out Tuesday: Infernal Affairs 2 (Special Collector's Edition) (Mou Gaan Dou II - Hong Kong, 2003) Infernal Affairs 3 (Special Collector's Edition) (Mou Gaan Dou III: Jung Gik Mou Gaan - Hong Kong, 2003) MORE BIGS: Marie Antoinette The Quiet School for Scoundrels (Unrated Widescreen) School for Scoundrels (Unrated Full Screen) School for Scoundrels (Rated Widescreen) Zoom - Academy for Superheroes (aka "Zoom") "BIGS" THAT WERE IN VERY FEW/NO THEATRES: Half Nelson Ryan Gosling's performance received an Oscar nod for Best Actor Infamous aka "the other Truman Capote movie" - Sigourney Weaver, Toby Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow Man About Town - Ben Affleck, Rebecca Romijn (straight to DVD) MORE FORMATS FOR: The Marine (Blu-ray) The Marine (UMD Mini for PSP) So when I was at Best Buy a couple weeks back looking at this movie (and restraining myself from buying it), I happened to notice that the runtime of the "unrated" version was a whopping ONE MINUTE LONGER than the "rated" version. Seriously, how much unrated-ness can you cram into an extra minute? Did anybody actually buy this and can shed some light? (I don't dare ask if anybody actually saw the movie AND bought the DVD - although I suppose that type of person makes up a large amount of the market for the DVD...) RERELEASES FOR RICH PEOPLE (BLU-RAY): Broken Arrow Chain Reaction Chronos Entrapment Ladder 49 Phone Booth Planet of the Apes Reign of Fire The Sentinel The Usual Suspects Anybody have a Blu-ray player yet?

Thanks for taking the time to do these lists, by the way.

Bug me about this next week. Originally posted by hansen9j I picked up the Conan O'Brien special. How can I order through Amazon.ca (for cheaper shipping) while still giving The W credit for the reference? (edited by CRZ on 9.2.07 1209)

El Robo de las Momias de Guanajuato also features the Blue Angel and Rayo de Jalisco. IMDB has a sterling quote for El Triunfo de las Campenoes Justicieros If you don't care about crazy and unrelated ideas, because there are not a plot, bad acting and lack of good effects, you might get away with it and even enjoy it. - thecubsfan. com CMLLBlog

Wouldn't go out of my way to purchase it, but, it isn't a dud. Kentucky goes over .500 in football and they release a DVD? What would have happened if they actually went to a real bowl game? Question on an HBO Movie, late 80's/early 90's: What was the name of the movie that had the U.S. get nuked by the Soviet Union, questions about who the President was, and James Earl Jones in the Looking Glass plane? I never can remember the name, and is it available on DVD? The Horsemen DVD is 3 Discs and 9 hours. Let Us Rejoice and Sing Its Praise.

This is a great week for Crtierions. The Paul Robeson set should be awesome and Bicycle Thief(Thieves) is one of those film school movies that everyone should see (especially if you can see the "homage" movie The Icicle Thief at the same time). I wish there were more extras on M. Antoinette. Mark Coale Odessa Steps Magazine The Affirmation, Baby Blog
