Welcome to a new The Special Edition. Beginning with this column, I am going to be making some changes as I go, trying to mold the column into something unique to my style. Newell changed things up when he was here to differentiate his column from that of John’s before him and I felt it was time for me to do something different for it now that I am on the job. Most of the changes are just going to be cosmetic, but the Bargain Bin is about to undergo an entire overhaul. I hope you like it and if you have any comments or advice, feel free to contact me at Chud1@starvingdogs.biz and let me know. Now, onto the new releases.

Smokin' AcesSMOKIN’ ACES
Director: Joe Carnahan
Stars: Ben Affleck, Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds, Jeremy Piven

The man who brought us Narc is back and this time he went all out. Where Narc was a dark, character piece, this is an explosive action-packed movie that just invades and rapes all your senses. The movie is action packed, beginning to end and is fun in the way that movies should be fun. The plot is pretty simple. Buddy Israel (Jeremy Piven) is a Las Vegas performer (magician) who is turning state’s evidence on the mob to the feds. To shut him up, a $1 million bounty is placed on his head. To complicate things, Israel decides to go Lake Tahoe for one last wild fling. It is at Lake Tahoe that a number of assassins turn up, vying for the $1 million dollar purse. Ryan Reynolds and Ray Liotta are assigned to be his protective custody. The cast for this is amazing. The assassins include Ben Affleck, Peter Berg, Martin Henderson, Jason Bateman and Alicia Keys, among others. Andy Garcia is on hand as the FBI Director, as well. The disc is pretty stacked as well. This is good fun and worth the look.

Notes on a ScandalNOTES ON A SCANDAL
Director: Richard Eyre
Stars: Cate Blanchett, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy

Notes on a Scandal received four Oscar Nominations, yet here I am looking up information about the movie that I only knew from having a very creepy Judi Dench as one of the co-stars. Cate Blanchett stars as Sheba, a young teacher who has an affair with one of her students (Andrew Simpson). Dench stars as Barbara, an older teacher in the school (Dench) uses that information to wreck havoc in the life of Sheba. Nighy plays Sheba’s husband, twenty years her senior. The movie is about the obsession that Barbara has with Sheba and the fierce hatred she has of anything that stands in the way of their friendship. Both Dench and Blanchett earned Oscar nominations for their roles in the movie, while Philip Glass earned a nomination for his score. The screenplay also earned a nomination. I assumed based on other Oscar nominees (Flags of our Fathers, Little Children) that we would get a pretty crappy DVD release initially, but was pleasantly surprised. Commentary, featurettes and webisodes are all included here. This ain’t my cup of tea, but it is supposed to be really good, so there are worse things you could spend your dough on.

Last King of ScotlandLAST KING OF SCOTLAND
Director: Kevin Macdonald
Stars: Forest Whitaker, James McAvoy, Gillian Anderson
Devin’s Review

Based on the events of the brutal Ugandan dictator Idi Amin’s regime, this is the movie that will be best known as the one that won Forest Whitaker an Oscar. The story is told from the point of view of Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy), a doctor who is given a senior position in the national health department and becomes one of Amin’s closest advisers. He tells the story of how Amin, as he grows from an idealistic leader into an erratic attitude that grows into a murderous insanity that drives Uganda into bloody ruin. Whitaker cleaned up the awards season for his role as Idi Amin, winning best actor’s awards at the Oscar, BAFTA, Golden Globes, National Society of Film Critics Awards, Satellite Awards and the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards. Predicting all this was Devin’s review, where he said “what gives The Last King of Scotland most of its truth is that marvelous performance from Forest Whitaker. This is a career-defining role, and it should be acknowledged come awards time.” It was, and it was well deserved. Following in the footsteps of Notes on a Scandal, this DVD is also not shortchanged in the extras category. Commentary and featurettes are included and deleted scenes and trailers round out the extras.

Director: Richard LaGravenese
Stars: Hilary Swank, Patrick Dempsey, Scott Glenn

Erin Gruwell is a teacher at a school where her students are considered “un-teachable and at risk.” She decides to encourage them to write to inspire them to change their lives, the perception of their own status in society and to help break down the ignorance that causes the negative forces that corrupts their lives. Ok. It sounds to be like Dangerous Minds meets Dead Poets Society. We get Hilary Swank playing Gruwell in this “Based on Real Events” story as the teacher who leads her student to writing about heroes from the past to help them get ahead in a society that really doesn’t care about them. In reality, the writings that the students wrote were collected along with the writings of Gruwell in a book entitled The Freedom Writer’s Diaries: How a Teacher and 150 Teens Used Writing to Change Themselves and the World Around Them. The students are credited as part of the book’s authors, known collectively as The Freedom Writers. Swank is pretty good in the movie, playing an almost obnoxious hyper-active and bubbly teacher whose enthusiasm helps the students accept her ideas and start changing their lives. A subplot includes Gruwell’s deteriorating home life with an underwritten Patrick Dempsey as her husband. Directed by former Oscar Nominee Richard LaGravenese (who wrote The Fisher King), the DVD is being released with some pretty nice little features, but no commentary. Sure, it’s been done before, but if you like your dramas a little sappy, you could do worse.

Director: Mathieu Kassovitz
Stars: Vincent Cassel, Hubert Kounde, Said Taghmaoui

La Haine depicts 24-hours in the lives of three teenage friends of a suburb of France after a riot breaks out, leaving one of their friends in a coma after being beaten up by the police. Vincent Cassel (Brotherhood of the Wolf) is a Jewish man, filled with rage. Hubert Kounde (The Constant Gardener) is a black boxer, who quietly contemplates the hatred all around him. Said Taghmaoui (Three Kings) is an Arab, the constantly talking voice of the three. When Vinz (Cassel) finds a police gun, he states that if their friend dies, he will kill a policeman in protest. The movie was based on an incident that director Kassovitz heard about when a police officer killed a prisoner at point blank range, while the prisoner was handcuffed to a radiator. The movie caused much controversy when it was released. Kassovitz won the Cannes Award for best director and the movie was nominated for a Palm d’Or. However, when the director and actors arrived at Cannes, all the French police officers turned their backs to them in protest of the depiction of police brutality in the movie. The movie has been out of print for years until this release by Criterion.

Director: Jules Dassin
Stars: Burt Lancaster, Hume Cronyn, Yvonne De Carlo

Brute Force is a 1947 Film Noir, starring Burt Lancaster as a Westgate Prison inmate, who leads a group who plans on escaping. Director Jules Dassin is considered one of the most innovative Film Noir directors of his time, and this is his second movie to be recently released on Criterion following Naked City (released March 20). This is a film that Dassin was very disappointed in for a number of reasons. He has called the movie stupid because it shows the prisoners to be noble and honorable. He also believes that the flashback scenes (which shows how each prisoner arrived at their downfall, due to love) watered down the film and he objected to their use. However, his bosses at MGM forced their inclusion, making the movie something that proved to be a labor for the director to complete. The film is respected however by critics, and Oliver Stone even said that the prison break in Natural Born Killers was highly influenced by this film.

Director: Stuart Cooper
Stars: Brian Stimer, Davyd Harries

Overlord is a 1975 film directed by Stuart Cooper, set around the D-Day Invasion. The movie plays on the emotions and thoughts of a young soldier, his meditations about being part of the war machine and his premonitions of death. The movie is about one-half archival footage and one-half contemporary footage. Overlord, which was also the code-name for the Allied invasion of Europe in 1944, won the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival (Special Jury Prize). The film never received U.S. distibution however, and only showed in select locations until, thanks to a revival at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, it finally took off and hit the American art-house circuit. Where it was once considered too modest and underwhelming, it seems like Americans see it as a welcome antidote to the gung-ho depictions of other war movies. Director, Stuart Cooper, spent three years studying World War II documentary and newsreel footage at London’s Imperial War Museum and, with Stanley Kubrick’s favorite cinematographer, John Alcott, he fashioned a narrative of an ordinary British soldier preparing for D-Day: his basic training, his boredom, his fears and his fatalism.

  • Mining the Archive, a new video featuring Imperial War Museum film archivists detailing the war footage used in the film
  • Capa Influences Cooper, a new photo essay featuring Cooper on photographer Robert Capa

  • Journals from two D-day soldiers, read by Brian Stirner
  • Theatrical trailer
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • PLUS: A new essay by critic Kent Jones, a short history of the Imperial War Museum, and excerpts from the Overlord novelization, by Cooper and Christopher Hudson

Oxide Pang Chun and Danny Pang
Stars: Kristen Stewart, Dylan McDermott and John Corbett
Release date: June 05, 2007

The Sam Raimi produced film, The Messengers, which was the US directorial debut from the Pang Brothers’ (The Eye, Internal Affairs) will be available to own June 05.  The movie revolves around the Solomon family, who leaves Chicago for a small, run-down farm in North Dakota so Roy (Dylan McDermott) and Denise (Penelope Ann Miller) can try to repair their failing marriage. If that isn’t horrific enough, their kids Jess (Stewart) and Ben realize their new farmhouse if haunted. Well, the evil spirits wreck havoc and the kids are forced to face the demons alone. Extra material will include an audio commentary with Kristen Stewart (you might remember her as the brat in Panic Room) and Guests, and seven behind the scenes featurettes (“Pang Vision”, “Script Evolution”, “Constructing the Set”, “Kristen Stewart, Rising Star”, “John Corbett, Unexpected Villain”, “Meet the Crows”, and “Exploring Visual Effects”). One critic called it the best haunted house movie since The Grudge. Those who know me know how much I absolutely hate that movie, so that along with the 13% Rotten Tomatoes rating makes me fee the Pang Brothers first US effort might not be worth the time when it finally reaches DVD. I understand that Raimi is trying to get more of the quality Asian horror filmmakers noticed, but if they don’t get better scripts, his Ghost House Pictures might just fade away. For those who care, a Blu-ray release will also be available.

Director: Stephan Elliott
Stars: Guy Pearce, Hugo Weaving and Terence Stamp
Release date: June 05, 2007

I have not seen this movie, although my wife seems to like it quite a bit. I actually always got this movie mixed up and confused with To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar. I mean the movies were made one-year apart and both were about drag queens. The second movie is about three drag queens traveling across the country and getting stuck in a small town. This movie is about two drag queens and a transsexual who get a cabaret gig in the middle of a desert. Also, Wong Foo has what my wife calls the very scary experience of seeing Patrick Swayze in drag. We get a little bit better acting in this movie with Guy Pearce, Hugo Weaving and Terrance Stamp (ZOD!!!). Extras on the new release will include Audio Commentary by Director Stephan Elliot (who has not come close to this success since), Birth of a Queen featurette, deleted scenes, a blooper reel called “The Bus from Blooperville”, a “Fabulous Photo Gallery”, the theatrical trailer and the theatrical teaser trailer.

Director: Craig R. Baxley
Stars: Brian Bosworth, Lance Henriksen, William Forsythe
Release date: June 12, 2007

Hell, yeah. Special thanks to Moltisanti on the message boards for bringing this to the light. First, I will indulge you in a little story, a history lesson if you will. In 1996, I was beginning the University of Oklahoma as a journalism major. I was looking for something to do as an extra-curricular activity. I chose to write for the Sooner yearbook. Well, I was one of three sports writers at the yearbook and was just kind of floating along, taking what they gave me until one day I was watching an OU football game I had recorded on TV and Brian Bosworth was talking about a program he developed that included buying an entire section of seats at all OU home games and giving the seats to inner city kids, kids in foster homes and kids in the children’s hospital, so they could all get out and enjoy a football game and hopefully forget about their troubles for a short time. I thought it would make a great story. I told the Oklahoma Daily newspaper (who I was also writing a little for) about it and they decided to run with it – assigning it to a “more experienced writer.” I was pissed. I went to the yearbook, gave them the same pitch and they told me to run with it myself. I called the sport’s office and received Brian’s Hollywood agent’s phone number and called him. Two days later I had a telephone interview with the man I idolized as a kid. It was also my first interview I had ever done. He was a complete professional and was a perfect first interview. He answered all my questions with straight answers and then even let me ask some football questions. Well, I went back to the newspaper and asked how their reporter was doing and they told me they had not found a way to get in touch with Bosworth yet. I mentioned I already interviewed him for the yearbook and, after a moment of shock, they asked me to write a story for them too. I did, and it made the cover story of the game day Red Zone magazine. First interview. First big story. It won be an honorable mention in the Oklahoma Society of Professional Journalist Awards that year in the feature writing category. It got me a cover story. It won me a Gold Circle Award nationally. It also got me my first national exposure, as Inside Sports magazine bought a sidebar story from me as well. Needless to say, Brian Bosworth was a huge start to my writing career. This all leads to the release – FINALLY – of Brian Bosworth’s first movie, Stone Cold on June 12. Bosworth plays a down on his luck cop who is forced to go undercover in a biker gang (led by Lance Henriksen). It is great for what it is and I can not wait to finally own this on DVD. Interesting trivia: One Man’s Justice (or One Tough Bastard, depending on who you talk to) – Bosworth’s second movie – was the directorial debut of Chud favorite Kurt Wimmer.

Director: Mark Steven Johnson
Stars: Nicholas Cage, Peter Fonda, Eva Mendes
Release date: June 12, 2007

Ghost Rider will be riding into homes on June 12 as both a single-disc and a two-disc extended edition with around 17 minutes of additional footage. Most people on this site hated the movie. There was not enough Ghost Rider action and the story was dumb according to most, including Devin (who reviewed it here). However, one thing Devin said that stuck into my mind was these words: “Ghost Rider is, more often than not, terrible – but in a very watchable way.” Now, I am going to destroy some of my cred right now: I liked Daredevil. I think Daredevil got a really bad rap and it really was a quite enjoyable movie. Ben Affleck did a great job as Daredevil and Colin Farrell was great in the movie as well. I think it is underappreciated and very underrated. This movie is the second comic adaptation for Mark Steven Johnson, who directed Daredevil, and I am interested in seeing it. Here is a reason why. In the real world, when talking to people I know face-to-face, I have heard two opinions of the movie from people who actually saw it. Opinion One: I know it got bad reviews, but I really enjoyed it. Opinion Two: It was awesome!!!! I will skip the “awesome” comment but the first opinion is someone I usually respect the opinion of when it comes to movies. This means, regardless of what people I have never met say about the movie, I will give it a shot. The single-disc theatrical edition will include a “Spirit of Vengeance: The Making of Ghost Rider” documentary, a commentary with director/writer Mark Steven Johnson and VFX Supervisor Kevin Mack, and a second commentary with producer Gary Foster. The two-disc extended edition will include all of the above, along with a Sin & Salvation: Featurette on the Comic Book Origins of Ghost Rider, and some animatics. A Blu-ray edition will be available as well.

Director: Bruce Beresford
Stars: Morgan Freeman and John Cusack
Release date: July 24, 2007

Here is another to add to the “where the hell did this come from?” files. The Contract, which stars Morgan Freeman and John Cusack (!!!) will be available to own July 24. I love me some John Cusack and Morgan Freeman is great as the bad guy (even though I know most of you hated Dreamcatcher). The movie, shot in Germany, tells the story of Ray Keene (Cusack), a former cop who is hiking with his son. The two come across a fatally wounded police officer and the officer’s prisoner, the hit-man Carden (Freeman). Instead of letting Carden go, Ray tries to be a hero and decides to take Carden himself to the police. The movie then becomes a chase movie with both cops and killers on their tales. The only extra material on the DVD will be a behind the scenes featurette, a photo gallery, and trailers. A HD DVD release will also be available.

This is the most difficult part of The Special Edition to compile. However, I want to supply you with a one-stop shop for your DVD buying needs. With the circulars not providing good information for all the releases, I have found that many of the past columns have been lacking in the area of best available deals.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the jam packed new column. The Bargain Bin is a lot more beefy than it used to be and I hope it is easier to navigate through now. I was quite surprised that the best place to shop this week is DVDPlanet. They kick everyone else’s ass this week for DVD deals and that Anchor Bay Horror Sale at DeepDiscount.com is too good to pass up. I also hope adding the directors, stars and release dates (for future releases) helps a little as well. I really want to make this column something special and make it a little more unique to me and I hope you are digging it. As always, if you got questions, comments or whatever you can e-mail me at Chud1@starvingdogs.biz. I am hoping to bring you a lot more goodness in the future, and I will see you next week.
