Hello.

The following 264 new listings on Amazon run the gamut from cross dressers to girls who I understand are going wild. A few of these new releases were actually playing in a theatre near you only four months ago - and one, only three months ago! Of course, if you didn't see it then, what makes anyone think you're going to buy it now? But that's not my problem. No, MY problem is to make these appear interesting or appealing enough that you will part with your hard earned cash by utilizing the links provided, so as to provide my brother with enough nickels to make him stop laughing at me for devoting so much time to writing these things up. (I'm just foolin' there - obviously I'll do these until whatever sick compulsion I'm suffering from wears out.)

Most movies have a link to their entry in the Internet Movie Database (signified by the "IMDb" icon) or at tv.com (tv.com icon) - click away to learn more if anything catches your fancy - they'll open up new windows and you can come right back here after you close it - or maybe you'll get so distracted you'll totally forget to come back! It's MADNESS!

Please! Share with us your opinions on any of these titles! Especially, if you've actually seen them! God knows I haven't seen ANY of these, which makes it a whole lot more difficult to make stuff up about them!

Now some of you have been following these for a while - you may have even purchased something after seeing it was available. I'm hoping that YOU will share your experiences with the rest of the group! Did you like your purchase? Or was your remorse so great that you wanted to commit violence? On me? DISH

As always, we begin the big list by me randomly grabbing whatever catches my fancy and proclaiming it my

PICK OF THE WEEK:
Dragon's Lair (The W at Amazon) (Blu-ray) (1983)
Dragon's Lair (HD DVD)
As part of the continuing effort to ensure that the ex-first laserdisc based video game ever ends up released in every format available, we are now treated to versions on the two latest formats - I gave my brother the DVD version (which now seems out of print, sadly) and I guarantee you you can only try to play that for about ten minutes before you give up and just play the entire movie without any interactivity needed - as far as I know, it's still the case that nobody hear actually owns one of these players, so I'm kinda wasting my pick on something nobody will buy...but that's how I roll



TV ON DVD

Bosom Buddies - The First Season - "See? It's all perfectly normal." (1980-1) Peter Scolari, Tom Hanks, and of course the late great Wendie Jo Sperber - 19 epsiodes, 3 discs - like me, you're dying to know if they paid Billy Joel to get the opening theme included, I know you are

Bathhouse (Unrated) (Phillipines, 2005) Gay Filipinos - wait, didn't we just have that one? No, okay, that one was about transgendered.... Well, okay, so in this one the gay guy STAYS in the Phillipines and goes to a bathhouse
Circles (Unrated) (Ws Sub) (Pitong Dalagita - Phillipines, 2006) Gay Filipinos-- no, REALLY. I guess they're all coming out at the same time - ahahaha get it "coming out" ahahahaha sorry

MOVIES FOR PEOPLE ON A BUDGET, FROM MAC FILMWORKS:
Charge of the Model T's (1979) Comedy - Louis Nye - I'm guessing they DIDN'T spring for a widescreen transfer
The Switch (aka The Con Artists - Bluff Storia di Truffe e di Imbroglioni - Italy, 1976) Crime caper - Anthony Quinn
Charge of the Model T's/The Switch
Horrors of the Red Planet (aka The Wizards of Mars, 1965) - contrary to Amazon's listing, does NOT star David Carridine - does, however, star (the head of) his father John Carradine in a sci-fi retelling of "The Wizard of Oz" (I JUST figured that out - it's easier when it's not called "Horrors of the Red Planet," which sounds NOTHING like "The Wizard of Oz" - must have been lawsuit fears or something - let's move on)

MORE DIRECT TO DVD:
National Lampoon's Spring Break (2006) (Unrated) Not even in the IMDb?? I don't know who Nikki Ziering is but her name's on the cover - that's probably her on the cover, too - this DVD is for people who buy DVDs with women and a glass of beer on the cover - me, I think it needs more shark attacks
The Pleasure Drivers (2005) In Pulp Fiction-esque fashion, three stories become one - Angus MacFayden, Lauren Holly, Lacey Chabert, Angelo Spizzirri, Billy Zane, Meat Loaf, Jason Mewes, Rachel Dratch, and probably you're in this movie too - directed by Quentin Tarantino('s cinematographer Andrzej Sekula)
Lovewrecked (2006) Amanda Bynes heads the MOST ECLECTIC CAST LIST OF THE WEEK
Black Love "A film about the secrets and confessions of what goes on in a typical African American relationship." C'mon, you and I both know what the REAL black love (googlx.com) is...

Do You Believe in Miracles Not to be confused with the 1980 US hockey team story - Hanoch Teller introduces true stories of divine providence (again, not including the 1980 US hockey story)
KYE: Kill Your Enemy Three men spend their last day of freedom working on revenge killings - I guess this is like the opposite of that last movie
Repentance With "urban street fighting" AND "martial arts" they manage to piss off two demographics at the same time - Maverick trailer (maverickentertainment.cc)
Skin Deep (2007) Mailon Rivera, Steve White, Debra Wilson - Thriller - Are you serious
Sublime (Unrated Edition) Wow - I recognise MAYBE one name on this cast list

Apparently, this is a six volume series - the missing volume shows a release date of 10/1/06, so who knows.

Presidential Power in America: 2006 Conference at the Massachusetts School of Law Hey wait - this was the MOST BORING ITME OF THE WEEK back on 1/9! I guess it was rescheduled? Or maybe they RAN OUT and had to RERELEASE it! YEAH!

BETTER YOURSELF:
Living Artfully With Sandra Magsamen (PBS, 2006) "Unleash your innate creativity to experience the joy of self-expression" - presumably that means "NOT by writing long posts about upcoming DVDs" but I still am feeling some self-expression and joy and shit

GOD'S PROBABLY TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING ELSE:
9-11 Contemporary Tragedy Some guy in Madera, CA wrote a song about GOD and 9/11! Why won't you listen? Won't you please buy the DVD? DON'T MISS EVERY PAGE OF THEIR WEBSITE (duelingstudios.com) (WARNING: noisy)

MAKING MONEY OFF THE DEAD - OR AT LEAST TRYING:
Diana: A Spiritual Legacy or: "A Quest for another ten bucks from Diana fanatics"
Spirit of John Lennon "A Haunting Tribue" - I think they should have said "Ghoulish"
Heroes of Wrestling Given that it's the same distributor, I am going to have to assume it's DEAD heroes of wrestling (although if it turns out to be the PPV of the same name, that'd be hilarious)

CHOO CHOO:
T.A.N.: Great American Train Ride I dunno, four hours seems as boring as being ON a train - hey, wait, now it says this came out on 3/7 - shoot, I dunno

I purchased this (through The W, of course) and unfortunately it's not "My Life" but the cheesy song they used over the closing credits... but with lyrics (Wikipedia tells us that it's sung by Stephanie Mills.)

Regardless, it's friggin' Bosom Buddies and it's great!

This was a pretty terrific season, as as expected, lopping 12 hours from the usual format meant much more streamlined storytelling. Good action, no eye-rolling time-waster subplots and some genuinely heart-wrenching moments (i.e.
