The reason for my lackadaisical posting of this column wasn’t because the dog ate it or even because I just plain forgot. No, I believe I can pin it on one man.

SEEK THE TRUTHCalling the supremely disappointing The Da Vinci Code anything less than severe (Devin even groused: “it’s retarded," while Nick said “this [DVD’s] a quacker) is grounds for self-flagellation. The whipping stems from the actual experience of sitting down to watch this piece, as it’s over-the-top seriousness extends a hearty middle finger to the average intelligence of anyone, say, over 14 years old. Ron Howard’s been on much of a run lately, as I considered his recent crop to be an interesting artistic progression for someone whose early career is based in straight-forward, simple classicism. Here, following Tom Hanks’ overstated wispy coif and Audrey Tatou’s unfortunate immanentism as it engulfs the greatest thing ever known to man, Howard’s style becomes hyper, zooming and thrusting and basically serving a wildly downsized and veering plot by Akiva Goldsman, whose millions of dollars have probably erased Lost in Space from our consciousness. It’s not good. Lines like “you are the secret!” are rendered in the utmost intentional humor, especially since I don’t think you can take such a production as anything less than a silly endeavor masquerading as important.

Maniac CopSynapse Films. There’s a company you should acquaint yourself with, stellar product and all. This month has already seen 42nd Street: The Deuce (a title I shamefully left out) and Street Trash: Special Edition, and now it’s Maniac Cop: Special Edition (read Alex’s Creature Corner review). You shouldn’t even have to know about the film – its reputation is well earned. Part psychotic explosion, part comedic horror, and, thankfully, all parts sadistically rousing funhouse, Maniac Cop is justifiably excellent. Director William Lustig, who brought some indelible images to the screen in my childhood (Maniac, anyone?), culls together a cast that includes the infamous Robert Z’Dar (as the titular policier) and of all people, Bruce Campbell. Watching Campbell relentlessly “tone” down his performance will feel very odd, even when Sam Raimi stops by to report the news. That’s all for naught anyway (Campbell does disappear for long periods of time), as Z’Dar’s crazy man takes it to the streets with various gleeful gusto and confounds top Cop Robert ‘that’s SIR, to you’ Atkins, of all people. But it’s not just the level of B-movie actors parading their guts out that makes the film worthwhile. It’s the sheer lunacy that Lustig and Larry Cohen’s script bring to the genre – beatin’ down everything in the process.

Look at the size of those hematomas – with:
- Audio commentary with Writer/Producer Larry Cohen, Director William Lustig, and Actor Bruce Campbell
- A featurette with Robert Z’Dar
- Additional scenes filmed for Japanese Television broadcast

PLANET YEAHDiving into the secrets of the Krell is a risky affair, even with our ape brains. Thankfully, Warner Brothers has seen to it that Forbidden Planet: The Ultimate Collector’s Edition eases that pain. Loosely adapted from Willie Shakespeare’s The Tempest, writer Cyril Hume weaves his story with pins of gravitas. As stodgy as it may seem now to the uninitiated, Forbidden Planet remains a science-fiction watermark because of its relatively back-breaking sense of manifest destiny. With the space landing of Leslie Neilsen’s lanky crew on Altair IV, their journey is marked with a deep hunger for the beyond, even if that primal urge represents the mere subconscious killin’ desires of someone watching from afar. As the fascination with psychology raged in our world (take a look at The Bad Seed for bedside watching), Forbidden Planet’s take on our monstrous IDs and egos was one of hope – an endurance that continues to evolve and change with your own withered self. My younger deviated septum certainly didn’t comprehend the older self’s fuller realizations. As a rightful classic, Fred Wilcox’s direction is neither flashy nor prescient, it’s wholly fitting. Along with Walter Pidgeon’s beard and Robby the Robot’s strict adherence to Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics, Forbidden Planet remains a great astronomical film all together.

- Sci-fi Trailer Gallery
- Forbidden Planet and The Invisible Boy reproduction lobby cards portfolio
- Forbidden Planet original theatrical poster mail-in offer

TCM’s exemplary Watch the Skies!, the poster offer, and the replica make the Ultimate Collector’s Edition a necessity. Any collection without this is like the awkward male pubertal stage – missing a hole.


BOFFO?As a documentary, Boffo! Tinseltown’s Bombs and Blockbusters, is too topical. Based upon Variety chieftain Peter Bart’s book (buy it here), the film strives to take a deep look into William Goldman’s obsequious maxim – “no one knows anything” – and relate that to their careers (Sydney Pollack especially, whose hits have been missing for a long time). Unfortunately, the result is a kind of talking-heads extravaganza where each participant (the likes of George Clooney, Richard Dreyfus in complete Poseidon bloodiedmake-up, and the omnipresent Robert Evans make appearances) divvies up information that leads the viewer in circles. There’s no enough insistence upon examining the culture/sociological impact of these films and why they either bombed or exploded – I don’t seem to remember a discussion into the mechanics of the Hollywood Publicity machine either, which plays a tremendous factor in such filmic monetary quests. Instead, it’s just formulaic interviews with an occasional bon mot thrown out for good measure, and that’s frustrating. As well-versed in Hollywood as Mr. Bart truly is, the film represents a mystical paradox in explaining why it is so. Maybe if there truly is such a fine line between success and the veritable dung heap, the filmmakers could have explained it with more depth.

GREEN MILE SEFrank Darabont’s adaptation of The Green Mile (read Devin’s interview) certainly takes its time, establishing mood, plot, characters – of mice & men. It’s a fairly good film that doesn’t languish in its 188 minute state, prodding out the supernatural elements with the simplistic good versus evil credo that slightly downgrades the story. However, what’s always made me unsettled is the way Michael Clarke Duncan’s John Coffey is portrayed – he’s the literal Magical Negro. Even when he’s shrouded in utter mysticality, Coffey straddles, very finely I might add, a completely difficult line that always never sat well with me, even when the men of the Cold Mountain Correctional Facility come to realize his power (and coincidentally, Hanks and Morse bring into two finely tuned characterizations). Counter-balancing these moments is the top-tier filmmaking on display, as esteemed filmmaker Darabont certainly understands how developments should play out on screen. It’s just too bad the whole film doesn’t quite gel cohesively.

Have a big man rip off your ears – with:
- Audio commentary with Darabont, who, as I’ve heard, now holds the record for longest commentary track ever recorded. As always, he’s chock-full of information.
- Walking the Mile: The making of The Green Mile documentary

49 UPFilmmaker Michael Apted’s continued series into the lives of several British men & women, 49 UP, remains one of the most fascinating looks into the human condition ever filmed. Apted didn’t start with the inaugural series, Seven Up!, but as a researcher on the first he did take over, revisiting a steady cross-section of participants as they aged. Every 7 years he promised to return, and now, some 42 years later (after Seven plus Seven, 21, 28 Up and so on and so forth), the payoff is still strong. While a couple people have dropped out of the study, most of the original participants have know been subject to universal scrutiny under the harshest of all – John Q. Public. As great a testament of being able to watch yourself grow up, you have to wonder about the subjects of Apted’s persistent line of questioning. Did they truly envision themselves to be where they currently are – domesticated, semi-content, and completely different from their former, younger selves? One wonders.

Where do they all belong? – with:
- Exclusive interview: Robert Ebert talks with Michael Apted

ACEEPT THISMuch to my chagrin, there’s a blurb going around where they call Acceptedthis generation’s Animal House.” Fortunately, that reviewer in question did optimal researching into this issue, ignoring absolutely everyone of my generation to make a wide-eyed ridiculous claim. Good on ya, as they say. If we were to compare the two films, we’d see that its execution is certainly no John Landis, whose humor springs forth from the characters. We’d also see that Accepted’s story is certainly no National Lampoon, where the students tone themselves down (for the more optimal demographic) in order to create some sort of flim-flam puppet school named South Harmon Institute of Technology. Frankly, after witnessing Lewis Black degrade himself in Man of the Year, I’m a little leery of his disheveled adult presence with these nubile young hardbodies. And evidently, like playing World Class Track Meet, no good can come of this.

Be a Shithead – with:
- Audio commentary with Director Steve Pink, Justin Long, Lewis Black, Jonah Hill, and Adam Herschman
- Reject Rejection: The Making of Accepted
- Adam’s Accepted Chronicles
- Music Videos for Hanging on the Half Pipe and Keepin’ Your Head Up
- Gag Reel Presented by Volkwagen

MERRY XMAS Here’s a little bit of misinformed history for you: Christmas Eve, 1914. Both the German and the French put aside their differences and gaping head wounds and joined a fraction of British soldiers in the literal non man’s land between them. They buried their dead, sipped cocoa, and generally canvassed the horrors of war with some morose holiday cheer. They played games – like Gears of War. Or even bloody T&C Surf. Such is the quasi-premise of Joyeux Noël – the erstwhile Merry Christmas to you uncleanly heathens – and the strengths in which it mines history rest upon this largely un-discussed tale. This is not to say the film’s good – I haven’t seen it (yet) – but it is to say that the story itself sounds innately fascinating. With a cast that includes a little bit for all the girls (Diane Kruger, Daniel Bruhl, Gary Lewis, and Benno Furmann) and all the boys (Diane Kruger, Daniel Bruhl, Gary Lewis, and Benno Furmann) and for that one dude (Christopher Fulford!), there’s enough multiculturalism on display to explode several United Colors of Benetton.

KONG EXTENDEDI guess if you’re a die-hard Peter Jackson convert, one who thought that the sublimely overbloated epic that was King Kong was worth shelling out for an additional 13 minutes of extra footage, then the King Kong: Extended Edition is right up your alley (see some extra footage here). A lot is going to be made of these extra moments – stretching the film to 200 + minutes – but for a movie that was 187 to begin with, it’s not going to feel all that much longer. What should be the hubbub are the sheer extras – a clue into big-budget production if there ever was one. Jackson’s fresh and layered take on the original (which, I might add, was the best DVD of last year) is something still of a paradox. On one hand, it’s been lovingly preserved, fully realized with the utmost respect for the inner-pre-pubescent in all of us. It’s filled with wonder. Yet, at the same time it’s also overstuffed with too many ideas and not enough character development (Devin nails a whole lot of caveats in his review). Silly me, but at this point we’ve probably all made up our minds anyway, and I’m probably more wrong than those 10 year old you argue online with everyday.

STRANGERS GIMME CANDYAmy Sedaris plays her role on Strangers with Candy so well that I was summarily frightened and cowering whenever her mere presence graces the screen. Now the screen has gotten much, much larger and I’m already backed into a corner with my knife like Rosemary. Yelling a hearty “Jerri shall rise again” into the ears of smug TV deconstructionists, Sedaris’ self-proclaimed user and abuser is back in High School all over again in her larger pair of frayed jeans. So are co-creators Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello (who interestingly enough, also directed). The train’s not even stopping there, as Dan Hedaya (!!!), Matthew Broderick, and even Philip Seymour Hoffman jump on and joltingly stop-start straight into the cameo line. The only caution in all of this is that allegedly the whole shebang doesn’t burst forth with the promise of a hard-charging R-rated descent into genital piercing, crazy la-la land. It does, however, have subtitles en español.

WE ALL DIDIf the question is Who Killed the Electric Car?, then the answer is we all did. Each of us became too dependant upon Texas Tea, with our crazee-eyed killers being the ol’ SUV – just gas up and go. Don’t look back (without midgets). Looking back and laughing upon the mighty hilltops is filmmaker Chris Paine, who points his activist finger (watch the trailer) into the distance and gazes his eye into the past with the quandaries posed by his forgotten question. If we’d all be so kind as to remember the quaint EV1, the little car that ran quietly and barely made any noise and produced absolutely no emissions, we’d realize it was doomed to fail. Goddamn hippies and their alternative energy. Paine, meanwhile, backs up his claims thoughtfully and surprisingly – bringing both fact and Thomas Dolby into the situation: his science is blinding. As an interesting look at the mysterious man (in this case: GM) and why he’s getting everyone down, this documentary’s certainly running full-on.

NEWMAN IN DA HAUSTo categorize Paul Newman would be to borrow from Borat. He’s a “sexytime explosion.” Warner Brothers cold-cocks our quivering assess with The Paul Newman Collection, a veritable cross-section of the man’s most known films and some not-so known. In Harper, Newman stretches his steely veneer into the seedy world of William Goldman’s private dickian script. The results are mixed, but delve into the sixties with atypical aplomb. Even better is Newman as one of the Young Philadelphians, collaborating with pro Vincent Sherman and ratcheting the melodrama up to objection. Then again, there’s also The Mackintosh Man, where Newman’s graying hair finds itself embroiled into international espionage at the hands of the one and only John Huston. As far as breezy thrillers go, it certainly has a boatload of merits. Additionally, I mustn’t forget the contributions Newman made to the Rocky Balboa-esque (literally) Robert Wise-directed Somebody Up There Likes Me, Pocket Money, and The Left-Handed Gun, the latter with Newman as Billy the Kid. Honestly, for its relatively cheap price and hours of countless exploration, this is yet another no-brainer in Warner’s collectible cannon.

If the above isn’t enough for your severely deflated noggins, consider the following titles. Personally, I don’t think Brothers of the Head is going to be embraced by our populace, but it should be seen. Famed directors Keith Fulton & Louis Pepe give birth to a rollicking, rolling spectacle that owes at least a rental on your part. Russ even mentioned (via Toronto) that it’s “one to watch out for.” Coincidentally, you won’t find Get Smart: The Complete Series anywhere in stores. Timelife owns the rights and is seeing to it that you shell out the premium $199.96 for it. And finally, whether you know it or not, John Tucker Must Die.

IDOCRACYEven when Fox dumped Mike Judge’s newest comedy into the dearth of the cinematic wasteland (i.e. below 300 screens), people still didn’t flock to Idiocracy (read the most informed people on the web and then check out Dax Shepard’s thoughts here). A pattern emerged a la Office Space. Since I missed it and you missed it and we all screamed that we missed it – in between bouts of massive depression – the chance mounts up on its large digital video steed and gallops in on 1.9.07. The plot is fairly simple – the bland, average Army Private Joe Bowers (Luke Wilson) is chosen to undergo cryo-stasis for one thousand years. Except that he’s forgotten about. Flash forward to 3001 when he awakens and he’s now – paraphrasing Billy Madison – the smartest man alive. Judge, attempting to use every inch of greatness in his witty pen, has supposedly fashioned a film that has been hacked to little, itty bits (sprinting in its truncated 87 minute form) representing yet another notch into his chastity belt. Will no one understand? Maybe some day.

TEJAS CHAINSAWJonathan Liebesman made this knock-down drag-out short called “Genesis & Catastrophe,” which pretty much put a lot of student films to shame. Expertly polished, relentlessly photographed, and wonderfully strung together, it certainly was, to put it mildly, kick-ass. Then came his big break, Darkness Falls. What a disappointment. And even though Devin hated Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Liebesman seemed to learn from that experience, brining his student filmmaking collaborators in on the horrific events (his student cinematographer returns with a colorful, contrasty vengeance). Which is not even remotely to say that the film’s good – I skipped out, preferring my scare to come from seeing what’s below my fat folds – it is, interestingly enough, a tough sell with the Leatherface saga being as ingrained into our culture (read: young, evil minds) as it is. Being a Michael Bay production, you’re bound to get the goodies (Diora Baird, Jordana Brewster, and Lee R. Emery) and the gore.

Don’t be retarded, be misunderstood – with:

The Unrated Edition contains, by conjecture, an additional series of minutes highly calculated for the uninformed purchase.


This weeks’ Cover Art Attack has the hardened viscosity of the flailing Jason Stratham veins of Crank, arriving on 1.9.07. Just make sure to get excited with Devin’s extremely positive review. Speaking of that, you have to wonder where it all went for Steven Zaillian’s nouveau adaptation of the seminal 1949 All the King’s Men (out on 12.19.06) – probably with good intentions gone severely awry. Evidently, none of that went wrong with the exemplary Brokeback Mountain. A 2-disc Collector’s Edition (quitting you on 1.23.07) should cause some much-needed revisting, or quite possibly, a renewed interested in one of the best films of last year.

Implosive, Explosive

ATOMISEDMichel Houellebecq’s foreign 2000 best-seller got the greenlight to feature status, and the result is Oskar Roehler’s Atomised. Unless you’re really into German cinema Roehler’s name is going to be ringing many bells – although I’d suggest checking out his treatise on relationships with Angst. Atomised, meanwhile, is based around two half-brothers and their wildly different sexual desires – one is incredibly timid (hello, message boards!), and the other is lead down astray to the path of addiction via sex. Not much of a stretch, I know, but chances are you’re going to be checking out this movie because of the cover art. It sells. What, is another matter all together. Still, advanced word has been all over the map (it’s been called terrible, bleak, and dourly depressing) – culminating with many people just waiting until word of mouth spreads like the disease it truly is.

Extras:
- German with English Subtitles
- Anamorphic Widescreen
- Making of and More

This is a Region 2 PAL DVD.


FIREPOWERA movie with Sophia Loren, James Coburn, Eli Wallach, and Tony Franciosa seems like it should jump to the top of my DVD queue. Except it’s not available here in the states. The film – Firepower – also prominently has Orenthal J. Simpson, who didn’t, at that point in his life, have to find the real killers. Plus, the goddamned film is called Firepower. The plot has some sort of flimsy excuse to send Loren’s life into a tizzy as her late spouse is murdered at the hands of a seedy businessman. Things, naturally, get a bit more complicated when the U.S. Justice Department oddly demand that a mob hit be placed on Franciosa’s entrepreneur, sending the gruesome twosome of Coburn and Simpson into the fray, guns blazing. The film itself isn’t quite as memorable as people might lead you to believe, but it does have several large explosions and car chases that, coincidentally, drive right through the plot holes featured throughout. Consider that worth at least one rental.

Extras include:
- Widescreen
