This is a great movie with a stellar cast. Colin Farrell plays a screenwriter whose best friends drag him into the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles after they steal a gangsters prized dog. Martin McDonagh (writer and director of In Bruges) is a master of modern dark comedy.
We won’t pretend to be experts on the series, but the coming of a new Fire Emblem is a good thing indeed, especially when the gap between release here and Japan looks to have been one of the longest in the series history. I’d call it an otaku’s delight, but then Nintendo just went and announced a crossover with Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei, so that’s likely put some considerable cream on your buckles.
Wow, I still haven’t seen Part 1 of Frank Miller’s animated adaptation, which appears to be so chock full of testicular fortitude it had to be split into two digital Horcruxes. By all accounts, it was a damned fine translation. Better still, this one appears to be even better, or at least far darker and more brutal. Can’t wait!
Ghosts and shit. Or is it witches this time? I don’t know. I imagine it’s basically the same thing as the other three. It starts out slowly. Lights turn on and off. Things move. Someone gets dragged out of bed. Everything is somehow miraculously caught on a handheld camera. Some people die in the end. It’s all very mysterious and spooooooky. You already know by now if this is your scene.
FUCK YEAHHHHHHHHHH. BRUCE WILLIS AHHHHHHHHH. YIPPEE KI-I DON’T WANNA PAY ANY ROYALTIES! By this point in your life you should already know all about the Die Hard movies, but if you don’t or just have never seen them, now is your fucking chance. The 25th Anniversary Collection contains Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Live Free or Die Hard, and Die Hard Decoded- a bonus disc tribute to John McClane, the all-American hero.
OMG BEST MOVIE EVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR! Seriously, that’s a recommendation. You may remember this amazing little film from Laser Time’s epic, two-part journey through cinematic Time Travel, so if you haven’t seen it yet, you simply must. I don’t know why the hell it’s over $40, but to be completely honest, I’da paid twice that!
Also called Vs, All Superheroes Must Die is… not a great film. It looks like it was filmed by bored college students and the actors act like bored college students. However, it does have an interesting plot. Four superheroes are stripped of their powers and thrown into an abandoned town where they must rescue one hundred civilians by playing a supervillain’s crazy games. If you can get past the lackluster acting it’s not a terrible film.
This collects nine incredible short films from the past decade including God of Love, The Danish Poet and The Lost Thing. I’m a huge lover of short films and these are truly some of the best ever made. This set is releasing just in time to watch them all again before the 2013 Oscars start up on February 24th.
Suuuure, this collection is expensive BUT it contains some truly awesome films spanning from the 30s to today. Gone With the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, Dirty Harry, Clockwork Orange, The Dark Knight, Inception, and a shitload more in one amazing bundle. As if that’s not enough, the collection also includes two documentaries on Warner Bros. and a limited edition poster. If you or someone you love is a cinephile this is essentially a dream come true.
This collects the first three Hitman games (Hitman: Contracts, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Hitman: Blood Money) as well as an art book with twenty-two pieces of never-before-seen art. All that for $39.99. Not a bad deal.
This film may have looked like a steaming hunk of dogshit, but it went over pretty damned well with the film goers and was a pretty substantial hit at the box office. Not that that’s any indication of quality, but even if you’re tired of watching Adam Sandler and his buddies coast through film after film, any movie that groups together classic Universal Monsters is alright with me.
