New releases, 28 Sept 2004


Sorry, that’s my reaction to this week’s list. Again. You can see it all over here.

The Alamo (widescreen) (2004)

They should release this in Iraq. I hear they’re running low on bombs over there.

Envy (2004)

A movie so bad that neither actor’s image appears on the box cover. Remember when Ben Stiller used to pick and choose movies, and not just make them all?

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (widescreen) (2004)

Lotsa good word on this. I should rent it someday.

The Hunting of the President (2004)

Because it’s the new “in” thing: left wing documentaries.

Ramones: Raw

Because I know some of you care… Their music doesn’t do much for me, but to each his own.

Sniper 3 (2004)

Tom Berenger must be spinning in his grave right now. I’m not saying he’s dead or anything… Just his career. He’s in this one, also.

Star Trek: Voyager: Season Four (7-disc set)

This season – 7 of 9′s costume shrinks even tighter. In season 5, blod clots develop from the suit’s pressure. In season six, he fanboys explode.

Eventually, the actress will move on to BOSTON PUBLIC, the latest abandoned project from David E. Kelley.

All the while, her husband will be asking for the kind of kinky activities that get politicians not named Clinton booted from office.

Static Shock: The New Kid:DC Comics Kids Collection Teen Titans: Divide and Conquer: DC Comics Kids Collection

For all you comic book kids out there..

The Meat Loaf DVD I talked about a couple of weeks ago might be coming out this week. Amazon still lists it as October 5th. One Meat Loaf mailing list seems to think it’s today. Stay tuned…

Next week: New two disc special editions of ALADDIN, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, and THE UNTOUCHABLES, plus dozens of others. It’s a long release list.

UPDATE: There is one exciting release that I almost forgot about. And DVDJournal didn’t have it on its list: HOMICIDE: SEASON 5 comes out this week, also. The week on DVD is thus saved.

    Come on, Augie, it’s not like Bill Clinton ever tried to have sex with Hillary at a sex club or anything. (I suspect this was to the relief of sex club patron everywhere.)

    Maybe the absence of Stiller from the ENVY cover art was a concession to his desire to have it released straight to video instead of theatrically. It apparently sat on the shelf for a few years after it was finished. I’m morbidly curious…

    Voyager interested me considerably less than Enterprise. So if I ever buy the set, it’ll be after I buy all the other Treks (which is unlikely). Speaking of Enterprise, I have high hopes for the next season. Not only is Manny Coto (read best writer of the show) now in creative control (B&B have apparently backed off), but he’s also hired Garfield and Judith Reeves-Stevens, longtime Trek authors, as staff writers.
