I’ve had some ups and downs in my life, and I’m not talking about the time I was unceremoniously probed by a bearded Lincoln log. No, I’d say one of the proudest moments came during the final down slope of the Pinewood Derby. I grabbed my 6th place ribbon and held it tight. It meant something, dammit. Years later, I’d try and re-live that shining moment, but all I can think about is that chimney.


Paperweight Trophies

HAWKOne wonders what Bruce Willis and Lord Joel Silver were thinking when diving into Hudson Hawk territory. It’s an unanswered question – maybe they just wanted someone to play Nintendo with? Joyously inept and horrifically watchable, Michael Lehmann’s film is part of the triangle that holds together the movie Pantheon. Naturally this meant it was high-time for the 15th Anniversary Edition. Revisiting it is like seeing your favorite graying sexual receptacle – look, there’s Richard E. Grant hamming it up! There’s James Coburn passing his gallstones each time he speaks! William Conrad is old and narrates! Whoa, over there, it’s … Frank Stallone (wait, uh, press stop) – each one bringing you closer to orgasmic glee. I don’t know how you could not be smitten by Hawk’s hypnotizing charms. And while both the greatest and worst traits of humanity parade themselves through its running time, I think the one thing all can agree on is that sometimes the guy on the donkey is just a guy on a donkey.

BlackballedRob Corddry stole my heart on The Daily Show, so instantly I’m interested in Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story (read Ian’s DVD review) and just about anything else he does (save for a ‘toasty’ animality). I’m not really an extreme sport fan – although extreme curling does make me a little hot under the collar – let alone a knowledgeable person when it comes to paintball. Although, how hard is it to understand? You just point, shoot, and let it explode – like the gooey grenades I lob into daycares. Corddry (read his interview with Devin here) isn’t that masochistic, I think, as his Bobby Dukes is the force behind the greatest cheat ever in the history of the sport. Ten years later, he’s back, and the forces of bias are against him. Allegedly, Director Brant Sersen melds the clichés of the fake documentary and the misfit sports team, crafting a fresher feeling in the process and thus regulating this to the top of your “see, do, now” list.

Number 2 is the shit – with:
- Commentary with Rob Corddry, Paul Scheer, Rob Riggle
- Commentary with filmmakers Brant Sersen, Brian Steinberg, and Chris Lechler

FD3The Final Destination films aren’t particularly notable for character development, since it all goes out the window since everyone dies (spoiler alert?). The first balanced a nice vibe to it, while the second had some ridiculously gruesome scenes that are topically shocking with not much else. Consistency is key in Final Destination 3, re-upping the ante wrought forth by the previous oblivious teenage unfortunates. The deaths, like a fan engine blade to the head, bodies being ripped in half, and other assorted oddities certainly take their time drawing out from the story (from original creators James Wong and Glen Morgan), but I suppose that’s what makes them particular to the first viewing. Afterwards the shock value always diminishes, but it depends on what kind of person you are if you’re continually whipping it out to show friends. As a pleasure, the Final Destinations work shocking wonders, but falter with other inclusions, like a little thing called acting.

Let me take a small moment here. What New Line is accomplishing with their Infifilm DVD release of this film is intriguing – like those Choose Your Own Adventure books from childhood. You’re going to hold certain pre-filmed fates in your hands, so the interactivity here between you and the technology is something I can see recurring for future titles. Just don’t let it kill you.

LOST AND FOUNDThe introductory/hosting scenes in Chappelle’s Show: The Lost Episodes with Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings are clunky and filled with awkwardness. At least with Dave it’d be amusing awkwardness; he was more at home. Plus, it’s funny to me that Chappelle kind of self-prophesized his own demise in the first sketch, where a character commented that “people are gonna say it’s not as good as the first two seasons” – he was semi-correct. Granted, that’s because most of the half-finished episodes have an unfinished quality to them (right down to the feeling of it ripped off the avid at low resolution), each one striving hard to feel complete, but seemingly lacking. A couple of skits are downright on-the-nose (especially the Tu-Pac in the club sketch and Dave as Howard Dean doing a Busta Rhymes video – those were hilarious) so it’s a natural confluence for Chappelle to continue to deliver some solid laughs. However, these three episodes feel cobbled together, completely missing that je ne sais quoi that Chappelle helped cultivate prior. Maybe that’s what Dave saw in his future, that inability. For that, it’s almost a disappointment, but there’s just barely enough to keep Frat Boys and Culture killers spouting “remember when?” until Chappelle reemerges anew.

DUSTYRobert Towne. Salma Hayek. Colin Farrell. All three combine (and one gets nude, although I’ve leave that discovery to you) to form the depression-era adaptation of Ask the Dust. John Fante’s novel harkens back to the elements Towne explored in his own Chinatown, the two not mutually exclusive, but both informing one another. There’s the sultry setting of Los Angeles (this time presented in a myriad of colors from cinematographer/color lovemaker Caleb Deschanel), the interplay of love and the dooming of fate. Hayek’s Mexican Camilla longs for that other life and in essence so does Farrell’s Aturo. Except the latter desires words and symbols in the forms of writing and leggy blondes. It’s a relationship not of convenience, but of questions, to which Towne wonders aloud. Ask the Dust never quite settles into the posed revelations. What Towne and his actors bring to the table is worthwhile, however, and that’s what makes it interesting.

FUCKING SHOTIt’s important to notice the cover for Awesome I … Shot That!, which has the Beastie Boys (read their interview with Devin) unloading 50 handheld digital cameras onto their concert going populace and watching the mixed results stream in, each one filmed from different perspectives, angles, and emotional experiences throughout their live shenanigans. Look closer and you’ll notice the “…” – why? It’s missing a gigantic word – FUCKING. Yes, the naughty word has been toned down for your shelf, since retailers surely don’t want little ones asking good old church going Dad what “fucking” means. Then he’d have to tell his son and suffer the penance that goes with it. Since my Dad told me what it meant at an early age (27), I turned out just fine. Many didn’t after listening to License to Ill, which established the white boy rap for all to gyrate – whole swatches of the boroughs were destroyed in its wake. In the case of Awesome! I (FUCKING) Shot That!, it’s all about the energy (or so says MCA, aka Nathanial Hörnblowér, aka the film’s director), as the manic jumping and rushing of camera helps to create a most unique experience (complete with bonus short film from David Cross), you might be shouting “I Motherfucking Watched That” to your uptight Dad.

I said Howdy, he said “Hi” – with:
- Band Commentary
- A Cappella Vocal Tracks – Listen to the complete concert with the sound from MCA, Adrock and Mike D’s mic’s only

Anchor Bay – seriously. I don’t understand why they couldn’t put Halloween: 25 years of Terror, the documentary on the film’s making, with panel discussions and other assorted odds & ends on the Divimax that was re-re-released this past year. It would have been a fitting piece on another disc, but just make sure you take another bite of that DVD Apple (minus Mr. Bim). To complete your descent into Anchor Bay’s clutches, please make sure have your dollars shellacked for the umpteenth incarnations of the fairly entertaining Halloween 4: Divimax Edition (“we must stop him!”) and Halloween 5: Divimax, with its abysmal arcs (just stop miraculously escaping already, jerk) and untidy ending. If you already purchased the LE Tins of both films, I can’t see repeating that experience again.

ShortzI can’t get enough of Short films – I make them occasionally as well. For those striving to learn the art and the craft of filmmaking, especially in its shorter form – here’s another entry into the Short DVD category with The 2005 Academy Shorts. There are several noteworthy ones; like John Canemaker’s The Moon and the Son: An Imagined Conversation, which expounds on his more troubling times as a child to a highly-characteristic artistic style. There’s even Sean Ellis’ much-hyped Cashback (which I missed), about a Supermarket Clerk envisioning hardbodies in the buff. By far, though, the most talked-about short would be Six-Shooter, in which Martin McDonagh (an Irish playwright) has a grieving Brendan Gleeson accosted by young hooligans on a train ride home. I’ve heard nothing but good things about that. Magnolia, the company, has been releasing some interesting, albeit hardly mass-promotional items lately and this is another DVD of note to check out.

Expect this:
- Bonus animated shorts "The Fan and the Flower" by Bill Plympton and "Imago" by Cedric Babooche


LadybugsIt isn’t even particularly a good movie. Rodney Dangerfield getting into the family films genre with Sidekicks’ Jonathan Brandis as he urges – nay, demands – that his fiancées’ son don a feminine wig and start kicking balls with the best of ‘em. He has to impress boss and finally gain some respect, naturally. Ladybugs was a tad entertaining, with Dangerfield’s one-liners zinging mutely right over my young head. Recently, it was on some cable station and I revisited it. Guess what? It’s still not even remotely life-changing, although it is affirming. Iron Eagles’ Sidney J. Furie directs with an incongruous style, but I’m not even sure if it was intentional or just because the material gets away with itself, especially when Vinessa “Domino” Shaw gets around to setting pre-pubescent hearts on fire. It pushes buttons manipulatively (although, one could argue that most movies do) and without apology – strings for sensitive moments, your top 40 hits for more upbeat ones. It cradles and coddles and even shakes you until you concede. In the end, leave it to Amazon to beat my words with their own, commenting: “Wackiness ensues.”

Powell Pressburger Tales Powell and Pressburger’s Archer films are haunting. Melding imagery with sumptuous cinematography, words with lyrical performances, camera movements with style and grace – their films leave footprints. Just ask Martin Scorsese (who loves them all), George A. Romero (who gushes over Tales of Hoffman), or even James Mangold (who enjoys Black Narcissus). One of their maligned and often misunderstood (during its original release) films was that of A Canterbury Tale. Taking Chaucer and stretching it until it became modern, the film is an interesting yet experimental tale about the three pilgrims who solve a strange crime during Wartime Britain. Powell & Pressburger also explore the spirituality behind the motives, softly expounding upon them until everything pops. It’s such an amazingly balanced filmed of beauty and solidity that really hasn’t been seen in a good version. The US release had many minutes exercised from it (from 124 to 95). Until now.

Follow the Old Road – with:
- A new, restored high-definition digital transfer
- Commentary by film historian Ian Christie
- Excerpts from the American Version, with Kim Hunter
- A new video interview with actress Sheila Sim
- A Pilgrim’s Return, a documentary about John Sweet, by Nick Burton and Eddie McMillan
- A Canterbury Trail, a new documentary visiting the film locations, by David Thompson
- Listen to Britain, 2001 video installation piece inspired by A Canterbury Tale, by artist Victor Burgin
- Listen to Britain, a 1942 documentary by Humphrey Jennings
- A booklet featuring essays by Graham Fuller, Peter von Bagh, and actor John Sweet


What’s wonderful about certain shows is that they’re finally get the recognition they so (rightfully?) deserve. Ones like Animaniacs (read Ian’s DVD review), or even Pinky & The Brain (and not Brian, like I originally typed). Steven Spielberg’s contributions to the field of 90’s animation should be recognized since they parlayed an instantly affable charm and an artistic merit that heralded back to Chuck Jones, in a finite way. You’ll also see those on shelves this week, along with the rest. Hammer’s Film Noir tales makes me giddy, and others yawn. Priorities.

Secrets of Krell

Peter Jackson isn’t done with Kong and by proxy neither are you. In the same vein as his Lord of the Rings (and quit griping, you knew this was coming), Jackson and Universal are busting out 14 extra minutes of footage and splicing it back into the lumbering behemoth (tapping out at around 3 hours and 20 minutes) for King Kong: Deluxe Extended Edition – arriving on 11.14.06. I haven’t been able to get through the film since I bought it, and I’m not sure if an extra 14 minutes will entice me. What will most likely, are the extras, the lion’s share of which will delve deeper into anything you’ve ever imagined (save for your own birth). Jackson’s film hasn’t really grown on me as much as his others, so the elusive time has to battle it out on its own in my own fragile warped world.

Here’s your stinking cover art, you damn dirty ones:



And here’s your plethora of extras, since those maniacs actually did it:

You’d think we’d be fools, idiots, really, to understand the complexities of the Krell. What our Ape’s brains can comprehend is easy: this – Forbidden Planet: 50th Anniversary Special Edition, out on 11.14.06. As the consummate science fiction film, one that has been aped countless numbers of times, Forbidden Planet still manages to keep ahead of the curve with its heady themes, stodgy robots, and towering square-jawed performances by the leads (including the ramrod straight Leslie Nielsen and too-powerful-for-his-own-good Walter Pidgeon). I don’t know if Shakespeare’s Tempest has ever been adapted so otherworldly for his own, with the explicit purpose of uniting cultures, or enthralling young little ones. Cyril Hume’s words do immense justice to the nagging desires to learn more than ourselves at the expense of destruction, and to the necessities of love, whether it be entirely wholesome or not. As such, I might have been a little too late to jump on its bandwagon (it was high school before I finally caught it), but its powerful and rollicking sense of mystery catapulted it beyond the stars and towards my own warbling id.

Give yourself an oil-job – with:
- New digital transfer from restored picture and audio elements
- Soundtrack remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1
- Additional scenes
- Lost footage
- Excerpts from The MGM Parade TV Series
- Two follow-up vehicles starring Robby the Robot: 1958 MGM feature film The Invisible Boy and
The Thin Man MGM TV series episode Robot Client
- 3 documentaries (the spectacular TCM original Watch the Skies!: Science Fiction, the 1950s and Us, All-new Amazing! Exploring the Far Reaches of Forbidden Planet (featuring new appearances by Leslie Neilsen, Anne Francis, Earl Holliman, Warren Stevens and more), and
Robby the Robot: Engineering a Sci-Fi Icon)
- Science-fiction movie trailer gallery

Plus, there’ll be a Forbidden Planet: Ultimate Edition with everything above AND a collectable Robby the Robot with moveable limbs, reproduction lobby cards (for the film and The Invisible Boy), and a wonderful mail-in theatrical one-sheet reprint Poster offer.


Dust Devil Richard Stanley’s 1992 film, Dust Devil, was cut to shreds once it arrived in the states, a victim of unfortunate happenstance (and the former Miramax’s head-scratching decisions). It’s also been very mixed on its word of mouth. Not that that matters, as the proper version of the offbeat horror film is coming closer to fruition here in the states, on 9.26.06 to be exact. CHUD just got word the filmmakers are working on a completely new version from a High-definition 16×9 widescreen master and have begun to work towards a DVD release, shuttering all that remains of the UK DVD. Stanley’s film is about a notorious shape-shifter who comes to a small, dying town in South Africa and proceeds to pick off its inhabitants one by one. Stanley, a local South African filmmaker who made Hardware, allegedly plays around somewhat with religious symbolism to allow for you to be hypnotized into giving him … your time.

Have a whole fistful of knuckles – with:
- Richard Stanley approved Final Cut: 107 min Hi Def transfer, 16×9 widescreen (1.85:1)
- Dolby Digital 5.1 Mix
- Commentary with Richard Stanley
- Stanley Production Diaries on the Making-of
- Featurette: A Demon Reborn: The Final Dust Devil
- Making-of Dust Devil
- Trailer for long lost 16mm version of Dust Devil

- White Darkness – documentary on Haitian Voodoo with commentary and production diaries by Stanley
- Secret Glory - documentary on the search for the grail and the neo-Nazi
movement with commentary with commentary and production diaries by Stanley and Norman Hill

Plus, there will also be a new Dust Devil comic book to further quench your thirst.


Region Free Lust

Romance and CiggysJohn Turturro made what he describes as a “savage musical” – Romance & Cigarettes. And still we haven’t seen it here in the states. The UK has and it is out, an amalgamation of the intriguing criteria of Illuminata and a lot of other cinematic things Turturro has learned working with some mighty heavies (The Coens, who produced; Spike Lee; etc.) with James Gandolfini as a man out to seek redemption from his illicit affair. It just so happens that the one in question is with Kate Winslet by way of Susan Sarandon’s icy, cold demur. You’re probably wondering where the hell the music comes in, so let’s leave that to Turturro himself. “When the characters can no longer express themselves in words, they break into song, lip-synching the tunes that are lodged in their subconscious. It is their way to escape the reality of their world: to dream, to remember, to connect to another human being” he says. If that doesn’t send you running into the hills, Romance & Cigarettes might be right up your demeaning blue-collar alleyway.

There are no special features. This is a Region 2 PAL DVD.


DAISY LE

What happens when an Interpol Agent and a Hitman fall in love with the same woman? You get the basic premise of Wai Keung Lau’s Daisy, which now comes in a Limited Director’s Cut. As the title states, it’s impossible almost not to see that flowers have something to do with the film, especially since it’s based primarily in Amsterdam. You know, like Van Gogh – the ‘he cut off his ear in a fit of madness’ place that my mind revels in each night. The young woman soon finds herself at the affections of both crazy characters while Wai Keung plumbs the depths of what this sort of situation can conjure up. Not wanting to cause strife within their respective careers, it seems that it’s within the developments where intrigue takes place, a caveat in which both are at prey. Daisy also follows a non-linear narrative in the process, thus causing IMDB user DICK STEEL (from Singapore, no less) to comment “no worries, it ain’t that bad, you’ll still be able to follow the narrative.” Spoken like a true man of the masculine people.

Taste it – with:
- This awesome equation:
Theatrical Version + Director’s Cut + 3 Disc Digipack + Photo book Limited = DVD (yeah.)
