 Night Stalker: The Complete Series

Night Stalker was one of many sci-fi/horror themed television shows that tried to capitalize on the popularity of Lost. Perhaps it was a case of too many shows competing with each other as Night Stalker was cancelled after only six episodes aired. X-Files...

 Platoon: 20th Anniversary Edition

While Platoon (1986) was certainly not the first film about the Vietnam War, it was one of the first to focus on the average foot soldier in an honest and authentic way. Oliver Stone’s film really put you in the jungle with these guys as only someone...

 The Scooby-Doo / Dynomutt Hour: The Complete Series

The Scooby-Doo! Dynomutt Hour originally aired on ABC every Saturday morning and was packaged as an hour-long show with the first half featuring 16 new Scooby-Doo adventures with Scooby-Dum, Scooby-Doo’s dumber cousin (if that’s possible) joining... 

Rumor Has It

 Rumor Has It

Since her highly publicized break-up with Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston has wisely kept busy making movies. Alas, they haven’t been that good. Both Derailed (2005) and Rumor Has It (2005) came and went from theatres relatively fast. The latter film was...

 Con Air: Unrated Extended Edition

By all rights Con Air (1997) should have been an awful waste of time, just another tired Jerry Bruckheimer testosterone action film whose final resting fate should be wedged between beer and pick-up truck ads on television Instead; the film brilliantly...

 Kingdom of Heaven: Director’s Cut

Kingdom of Heaven (2005) was Ridley Scott’s costly epic about the Crusades that promptly flopped at the box office in North America. Clearly, the studio and Scott were hoping for another zeitgeist galvanizing response to this film like with Gladiator...

 Viridiana

The making of Viridiana (1961) not only saw a return to Spain for filmmaker Luis Bunuel (he left in 1939 when fascism took over) but a return to international notoriety. He made some great films in Mexico, including Los olvidados (1951) and El (1952)... 

When a Stranger Calls

 When a Stranger Calls

When a Stranger Calls (2006) is an unnecessary contemporary remake of a memorable little B-horror movie based on an urban legend known as “The Babysitter and the Man Upstairs.” It starred Carol Kane and came out in 1979. It was a modest hit and the...

 Napoleon Dynamite: Like, The Best Special Edition Ever!

In an attempt to cash in on the recently minted cult film status of Napoleon Dynamite (2004), the film’s star Jon Heder’s emerging film career and director Jared Hess’ new movie coming out this summer, 20th Century Fox have double dipped with a... 

Delicatessen

May 17, 2006

 Delicatessen

Delicatessen (1991) marked the impressive feature film debut of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, two mad geniuses from France who would sadly make only one other film together (the Terry Gilliam-esque City of Lost Children) before going their separate...
