That's the lesson here.

A lot of people weren’t happy with the ending of How I Met Your Mother. Because I don’t watch the show, I don’t really understand what the uproar was about, and even if I did, I wouldn’t print it here, because of my intense phobia of spoiler-related uprisings by angry readers.

Suffice it to say that they ending seemed to be hated by many who had spent so many years trying to discern who the f*ck the mother was. In a reactionary move, the powers that be have pledged an alternate ending be bundled with the DVD box set. Which is kind of a genius move, giving people a wildly unpopular ending, then promising the good one for those who pay thirty bucks or whatever the hell DVDs cost these days.

The show wrote two different endings, but only shot one, meaning that this alternate ending will be cobbled together from what was shot. This sounds like a beautiful disaster waiting to happen.

He IS the law.

On January 8, Dredd came to DVD and Blu-Ray, so if you think that you can escape the loooooong arm of the law in the comfort of your home, think again. And in case you’re wandering if this follow-up is softer than the original, think again. This has more grit than sandpaper does.

This is pretty damn cute. It’s also an ad for Disney‘s Lady and the Tramp (now on Blu-Ray!) DVD, but whatever. We have to do something to make up for that Valentines Day dildo piece we ran earlier today. (sigh)

The dogs seem pretty heavily sedated and uneasy, but isn’t that how love makes you feel? I think so. Also, they didn’t even give the dogs real meatballs, but let’s pretend that right after this scene ended, the dogs were given a tray of meatballs, then made love, doggy-style, in a candle-lit dog house.

So here’s to the purest love we know – dog love used to sell copies of a re-released film, now available on Blu-Ray!

Now go eat those chocolates!

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is coming to Blu-ray on February 7th. In honor of the momentous occasion, we’re rolling out this clip featuring everyone’s favorite drug-abusing pseudo-gay sex-addict, Neil Patrick Harris.

In this scene, NPH uses his homosexual cover story to lure a backup dancer into his dressing room. And since he’s so non-threatening, what’s the harm in some nude massage? After all, they’re just a couple of girlfriends, right?

At any rate, if you’re anxious to see how this ends (hint: it ends poorly), go and pre-order the Blu-ray. Tell them Jame Gumb sent you, and receive absolutely no discount.

The post Review: Give ‘Real Steel’ A Second Chance On Blu-Ray And DVD appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Real Steel is one of those movies that I wish had done better. It’s not an especially great film, but it’s admirable for what it wants to do and say, and is, at the very least, an enjoyable time. But nonetheless, it fell flat in theaters, but is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.

The Blu-Ray looks amazing, crystal clear and colorful. And, I’m aware of how dorky this is, but I was quite happy the loading time on the disc was very low. (I hope I’m not the only one to recognize the leaps and bounds Blu-Ray loading times have made. I remember the first Blu-Ray I bought took forever. And by forever, I mean about 10 seconds. But those are 10 seconds of looking at cat and girl photos on the Internet that I won’t get back!)

It’s not packed to the gills with features, but what it does have is pretty good. “Countdown to the Fight: The Charlie Kenton Story” is sort of a behind-the-music video of Hugh Jackman‘s character from the film. You only need to watch it if you’re an “extra features completist.” Otherwise, you can skip it.

“Making of Metal Valley” is a great feature where you see how they created a large sequence in the film. Director Shawn Levy does most of the talking and explaining as they show how they created Metal Valley, which had no real description in the script (isn’t that something of a screenwriting no-no? And is saying no-no a no-no?) Levy gives a lot of credit to his crew for helping create the film, which is nice to see since Hollywood is full of many egotistical directors (COUGH-Michael Bay-COUGH).

The rest of the features are a nice watch. Sugar Ray Leonard has a five minute segment detailing how he helped Hugh Jackman act like a real boxer. “Building Bots” is a cool behind-the-scenes look at how they created the practical and CGI robots. “Real Steel Second Screen” is a feature where you download an app to your computer or iPad, sync it to the film playing on your TV, and watch more extra features while the film plays. It’s a pretty cool feature and something I hope gets included on more Blu-Rays.

And finishing things out are your standard deleted and extended scnes, bloopers, and audio commentary by Levy, who is a fairly charming and interesting guy.

Overall, it’s a great Blu-Ray, It looks phenomenal, and has some fun features you can enjoy. Also, the film provides you with the fun game of “Who is Hotter: Hugh Jackman or Evangeline Lilly?” Man or woman, it’s a tough game.

‘The Rocketeer: 20th Anniversary Edition’ On Blu-ray http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-rocketeer-20th-anniversary-edition-on-blu-ray/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-rocketeer-20th-anniversary-edition-on-blu-ray/#comments Wed, 04 Jan 2012 02:39:08 +0000 Archibald Bayou III http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=241637 Not bad, but could have used more special features.

The post ‘The Rocketeer: 20th Anniversary Edition’ On Blu-ray appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
The Rocketeer is now available on Blu-ray. Based on a comic book series by the late Dave Stevens, the film tells the story of a young pilot who gets ahold of a top secret jet pack and uses it to fight Nazi‘s and rescue Jennifer Connelly. So basically a mixture of every dream I had at age 12.

The film is directed by Joe Johnston, better known for last summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger. That film’s success probably had more to do with this Blu-ray release than the “20th Anniversary” milestone quoted on the cover. But however it happened, it’s nice to finally get The Rocketeer in high definition.

How does it look? Good, if not great. Certainly the picture is miles above the previous DVD release, but it is still a bit washed out compared to other Blu-ray transfers from the early 90′s. But the sound is excellent; as good as I’ve ever heard the film.

The only real disappointment with this release is that it contains the film, a trailer, and nothing else. I know The Rocketeer wasn’t a huge hit for Disney, but certainly they could have sweetened the package a bit for the die hard fans. Any behind the scenes clips or deleted scenes would have helped make it a better value than the previous DVD, which also featured zero special features. To call it the “20th Anniversary” edition and feature just the trailer is kind of a cruel tease.

Still, how does the film hold up after all these years? It’s still slightly corny, but a lot of fun. By making the movie an earnest slice of pre-WW II nostalgia, Johnston gave it a timeless feel, respectful of it’s comic book roots and engaging to audiences of any age. Hopefully, this release will help expand The Rocketeer’s devoted fan base, and by the time the 30th Anniversary rolls around, we’ll get some extras we can celebrate. The Rocketeer is available in stores now, with a SRP of $26.50.

The post Review: Fright Night On Blu-ray – Now Featuring More Daylight appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
New on Blu-ray this week is the 2011 remake of the horror classic, Fright Night. Starring Colin Farrell and Anton Velchin, the film is a solid update, even if it never quite overtakes the 1985 original.

Like its predecessor, Fright Night tells the story of a high school student who is absolutely convinced his creepy new neighbor is a blood thirsty vampire. Deciding to protect his single mom and girlfriend, he teams up with a sleazy Vegas performer (David Tennant) and preps to battle a small army of the undead.

The visuals are slick, and the gore is plentiful, although the high definition tends to let some of the CGI work stand out more than it should. The audio is solid, and pops as you’d expect it to during the action scenes. The two disc combo pack also features a DVD edition of the film. And you can shell out a few more bucks for a 3D edition if that sort of thing floats your boat.

The extras on the disc are varied. You get five deleted scenes, a couple featurettes, bloopers and a music video. The disc also features one of the more unique extras I’ve encountered, in the form of an audio track for the visually impaired. Essentially, the track provides a reader who describes everything happening on screen while not interrupting dialogue. And when I say everything, I mean it. If you ever wanted wanted to hear a vivid description of the Touchstone Entertainment logo, now is your chance.

So is it worth it? Yes, if you enjoy horror with a good mix of comedy. The acting and action sequences are good throughout the film, even if the pace moves a bit quicker than necessary. Although I think Fright Night missed some opportunities to separate itself from the vampire pack, it’s still a step above most recent horror films, and certainly most recent horror remakes. It won’t make any die-hard fans forget the original, but the movie is by no means an embarrassment to the name.

Fright Night is now available in stores, with an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu ray/ DVD combo pack.

The post Give ‘Conan’ On DVD A Chance… Or Don’t appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Released in August of this year, Conan the Barbarian failed pretty hard at the box office. Even Sean Hood, one of the screenwriters of the film, wrote a blog about how it felt to see the movie fail, which made me feel slightly bad that it did. Sometimes, you forget the people who make movies actually have feelings and believe in a project. But screw them, the movie sucked.

Well, not really. It wasn’t that bad. In fact, it’s an R-rated action film that probably would have been huge in the 90′s, but not in our cynical-10s (is that what it is? 10s? What about O-10s? That’s what I’m going to use. Try to stop me.)

The DVD and Blu-Ray are sparse on extras, but the ones they have are interesting nonetheless. “The Conan Legacy” is a pretty cool 18-minute history of the character that is really well made. The most interesting comment was by one of the film’s producers saying they cast Jason Momoa, and unknown actor, so they wouldn’t have to have someone who would be compared to Arnold Schwarzenegger. That seems slightly odd considering how anyone who would have been cast would have been compared to Arnold. I understand he is trying to find a more finess way of saying, “We cast an unknown because this movie had to be cheap.”

“Robert E. Howard – The Man Who Would Be Conan” is a short look at the man who created the character. It’s a fun watch. But, the two best features are about staging the fights.

“Battle Royal – Engineering the Action” is a look at how the stunt coordinators worked. It gives you a lot of insight into how they get these intricate fights created and ready to shoot. Spoiler Alert! Editing and many angles makes these fights interesting. Seeing the fights actually being created is funny because the actors are barely making contact and are slow. But it’s great to see the creation and final product, which makes “Staging the Fights” even cooler. The filmmakers actually shot many of the fights scenes in pre-production with stunt doubles and referred to these short films when shooting the actual movie. It’s great to see the stunt double version versus the final version.

The final two special features are audio commentaries, one with the director, Marcus Nispel (which breaks the main commentary rule: never only have one person. It’s very boring and very quiet). The other is with Momoa and Rose McGowan, which really should be called “Everything is About Rose McGowan” because she finds a way to make everything about her. Even scenes she isn’t in are somehow about her. The only thing she doesn’t talk about is the amount of plastic surgeons it took to turn her face into a flat, plastic shell of its former self.

I think Conan is worth giving a chance. It’s campy, gory, and has some decent laughs. Also, some nudity. And that’s always good, right? (No. See About Schmidt).

The post ‘Blue Velvet’ On Blu-Ray: Now Dean Stockwell’s Singing Is Even Creepier appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Blue Velvet makes its Blu-Ray debut today, in a special 25th anniversary edition. The mystery of a college boy (Kyle MacLachlan) and the severed ear he discovers has aged well, and remains the perfect entry to the weird world of David Lynch films. It’s probably the director’s most straight forward story aside from… well, aside from The Straight Story. The film retains its power after all this time, but it’s hard to believe it was considered so shocking and controversial at the time of its release. Even so, Blue Velvet earned Lynch the second of his three Oscar nominations.

How does it look and sound on Blu-Ray? Superb. The picture is sharp and clear, but not as artificially bright as many Blu-Ray transfers of older films seem to be. The end result reminds you that you are watching something on film, with the rich color textures that film should provide. The sound is very good. On a good sound system, Isabella Rossellini’s song will still stun you, and Dean Stockwell’s song will still make you want to hide under your bed.

The extras are solid, but many of them are reused from the 2005 Special Edition DVD. This includes a documentary, and a clip from Siskel & Ebert‘s original review of the film. The clip is notable as Roger Ebert did not like Blue Velvet, and was vocal about his disdain for it. Gene Siskel defended the film, but it was interesting to see a negative review included in a film’s home video edition, and it demonstrates the confidence Lynch has in his work.

The main draw in the extras is a whopping 50 minutes of lost footage that has been restored, edited and scored for this package. The footage is fascinating. You can see why it was left out of the movie, but any fan Blue Velvet or Lynch will still want to soak it in. The extra scenes are presented out of context, one after another, which still makes them more coherent than about half of Lynch’s other films.

Blue Velvet’s 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray is released Tuesday, November 8th, with a SRP on 24.99. It’s worth upgrading for the new picture, and certainly for the newly released footage.

Netflix Now Agrees With The Rest Of The World That Qwikster Was A Really Bad Idea http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/netflix-now-agrees-with-the-rest-of-the-world-that-qwikster-was-a-really-bad-idea/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/netflix-now-agrees-with-the-rest-of-the-world-that-qwikster-was-a-really-bad-idea/#comments Mon, 10 Oct 2011 17:45:58 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=231823 Good news: one site for all services. Bad news: rate hike stays and your streaming selections are still pretty awful. Sooooo...have a nice day?

The post Netflix Now Agrees With The Rest Of The World That Qwikster Was A Really Bad Idea appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
In strict adherence to its new corporate mission statement “Confuse and frustrate the customer,” Netflix has decided that breaking its two services (DVD-by-mail and streaming video) into two completely separate services was a bad idea, despite having announced the idea less than a month ago.

The plan was to dedicate the Netflix name and site to streaming only, while people renting DVDs through the mail would be going through the new Qwikster site. Presumably this was done in an effort to justify Netflix’ recent and wildly unpopular rate hike by presenting the two services as completely distinct. While that’s a sort-of-okay idea on paper, the fact remains that people didn’t think that giving them two accounts to manage on top of a rate hike was all that awesome of an apology.

Which is funny, because Netflix should be pretty awesome at apologies by now. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, who is probably wondering what the hell the point of it all is anymore, sent out this statement:

It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs. This means no change: one website, one account, one password… in other words, no Qwikster.

Netflix: the Ike Turner of the entertainment industry.

In honor of this week’s release of Quentin Tarantino‘s classic Pulp Fiction on Blu-ray, Screen Junkies has taken a look back at the most noteworthy Pulp Fiction parodies from the past 17 years. From “Saturday Night Live” to “Community” to ”House M.D.” and beyond, Pulp Fiction has been referenced and spoofed in every way imaginable. With that in mind, let’s explore the lighter side of a film that features murder, overdosing, and forced sodomy.

Break.com

Lil’ Pulp Fiction is the newest entry on this list, and it comes from our parent site Break.com. After all, why let the opportunity for a shameless plug go to waste.

Spaced

I have yet to immerse myself into the U.K. series Spaced, but I understand the series featured spoofs of many different films and television shows. This one, an homage to the final showdown between Butch and Vincent, is pretty solid. It also features Nick Frost, who ruled in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and can make me laugh pretty much by standing still.

Community

NBC’s excellent sitcom “Community” has parodied everything from Predator to Goodfellas to Space Camp. Last season’s episode, “Critical Film Studies,” devoted itself to Pulp Fiction, and really captured the deep love that the film’s fans have for it. Bonus point: Britta looked super hot in her Mia Wallace costume.

George Lucas’ 8 Most Irritating Changes To The ‘Star Wars’ Films http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/george-lucass-8-most-irritating-changes-to-the-star-wars-films/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/george-lucass-8-most-irritating-changes-to-the-star-wars-films/#comments Thu, 25 Aug 2011 17:21:35 +0000 Nicholas Pell http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=225914 Enough already, beard-o!

I was a senior in high school when George Lucas unleashed the Star Wars Special Edition on the world. My excitement to finally see the trilogy in its expanded form quickly evaporated when I saw Greedo shoot first. Since then, Lucas has continued to touch my childhood in its no-no spot every couple years or so. With the impending release of the Star Wars saga to Blu-Ray on September 12, get ready for a whole new round of pointless and irritating changes to what used to be the raddest sci-fi trilogy going.

Arbitrary Dialogue Changes Too Numerous to Count

One thing Lucas loves to do every time he edits Star Wars is to change dialogue in seemingly arbitrary ways. It’s not really clear why “Blast it, Wedge, where are you?” gets changed to “Blast it, Biggs, where are you?,” nor what difference having C-3PO say “and” before “do take care of yourself” makes, but apparently it’s a big deal to George.

Title Changes

Back in the day, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope was known simply as “Star Wars.” Of course, back in the day, Star Wars was just a fun movie to watch and an excuse to use Whiffle bats as light sabres. Somewhere along the line George Lucas started seeing his work as some kind of socially relevant epic. Accordingly, he not only started giving the films incredibly pretentious names, he actually went back and changed the titles of previously released films.

Greedo Shoots First

This was the irritating change for nearly a decade. Somewhere along the line, Lucas decided that Han Solo was a noble knight instead of a charming rake. Accordingly, he couldn’t dare shoot first at a bounty hunter trying to claim him for a disgusting space worm. This change isn’t minor or insignificant. It completely alters the character of Han Solo. Why not have him tell Leia “I love you, too” while we’re at it?

There’s a lot to like about this week’s new DVD releases. As far as the newer films, things are a little slim, unless you’re big fan of cartoon parrots and Christian overtones. But for anyone who likes 80′s comedies, you’re in luck. And MST3K fans also have a lot to look forward to, as do fans of sports legend Kenny Powers.

Take a look for yourself at this week’s DVD Rundown!

Last week at this time, I was all geared up for Comic-Con. Now it’s over, and I’m right back here, cropping pictures for this week’s DVD rundown like some sort of schmuck.

But my mediocre existence fits right in with the mediocre crop of new DVD’s being released today. I hope you like Source Code and Todd Solondz, otherwise, you’re going to have to settle for a trip in the way-back machine to a time when Animal House and Blues Brothers were still fresh and new. See for yourself in this week’s DVD Rundown!

And the Lord said, “Tuesday shall be the day that new DVDs will be released. So let it be written, so let it be done.” And so it was, and there was much rejoicing.

And you too shall rejoice, for Hey Dude Season 1 is now available on DVD. If you prefer something a little more “urban,” Boyz ‘n the Hood is also available, as is everyone’s favorite sickeningly sweet French film, Amélie. There’s literally something for everyone, or at least everyone with a DVD player and disposable income. With that in mind, here’s this week’s DVD Rundown!

It’s Tuesday. Therefore, it’s new DVD day. Therefore, Screen Junkies is making me post a list of the new DVD’s that will be hitting stores today. Huzzah.

I hope you like concert videos, because this week, we’ve got a ton of them. We’ve also got a Matthew McConaughey movie, a talking lizard, and robot chicken. With so many options to choose from, you’d be a fool not to waste your money on a format that will probably obsolete within the next few years. With that in mind, here’s this week’s DVD Rundown!

It’s new DVD day. Deal with it.

Sorry I snapped. I’m just a little upset that Boy Meets World season six is out, and I’m stuck at work like a jackass instead of watching it. I’m sure you can sympathize. Also out this week is Das Boot, for those of you who like to watch Nazis on boats. There’s other stuff coming out as well, but if I list it all here, you won’t bother to read on. So take a look below.

Here’s this week’s DVD Rundown!

It’s new DVD day, which means it’s time for the Screen Junkies DVD Rundown. This week, we run the gauntlet from Sucker Punch to Stuart Little, from cage matches to Cowboy Bebop. If none of that tickles your fancy, there’s always the Lord of the Rings or Jumangi DVDs. And after all that, if you’re still not satisfied, I really don’t know what to tell you other than the world doesn’t revolve around you, and maybe you should learn to be happy with the hand you’ve been dealt.

At any rate, here’s this week’s DVD Rundown!

It’s new DVD day, which means it’s time for the Screen Junkies DVD Rundown. This week, we’ve got a lot to choose from, including my own personal favorite, “Rocko’s Modern Life.” Also, there’s “Medium,” a show rivaled only by “Home Improvement” for predictable plot lines. With so many great choices, it’s almost enough to make you forget that we’re all marching slowly toward death. Almost.

At any rate, enjoy this week’s DVD Rundown!

The post Movies Hollywood Makes Us Steal appeared first on Screen Junkies.

In a world where almost any film you wish to purchase is just a few mouse clicks away, it’s rare to come across a title that is not available. But as rare as it may be, there are some movies that, for one reason or another, simply cannot be obtained by legal means.

Unless you are lucky enough to get your hands on an out of print or VHS copy, the only way to view these films is to steal them outright via digital piracy. Obviously, we don’t condone breaking the law, but if you want to watch a movie about Nic Cage catching leprosy (more on that later), sometimes you have to take drastic measures. If these films were available to purchase, that would be a different story. But since Hollywood chooses to keep them off the shelves, you can’t be held responsible*. With that in mind, here are five films Hollywood makes us steal.

* Note, you can and will be held responsible.

The Siege of Firebase Gloria (1989)

Anyone with even the slightest interest in cinema remembers R. Lee Ermey’s famous role in Stanley Kubrick‘s Full Metal Jacket. But this was not his only stint in a Vietnam War movie. Ermey also has a major role in The Siege of Firebase Gloria, a film that follows the exploits of a group of marines as they try to hold an outpost under attack by the Viet Cong. Although the film has some devoted fans (including Quentin Tarantino), you’ll have no luck finding it on DVD.

Fright Night II (1988)

Sequels don’t usually live up to their originals. I’ve never seen Fright Night II, so I can’t say one way or the the other. Chances are I won’t get the chance to see it, unless I illegally download it. Of course, I could go and buy a copy of the now out-of-print DVD on eBay. But considering the price is around $100 (depending on the auction) I think I’ll just go ahead and break the law. (Thanks for the tip, Mike Gavern).

Let It Be (1970)

Beatles fans would love a chance to own Let It Be on DVD. After all, the documentary chronicles what turned out to be the making of the band’s last studio album. But with no DVD release in sight, you’ll simply have to buy a used VHS copy. Don’t worry. I saw one on Amazon for only $300.

Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977)

Looking for Mr. Goodbar? Keep looking. Although it is widely considered a classic, this film about the sexual awakening of a mild-mannered schoolteacher (Diane Keaton) is out of print, with no plans for a release on DVD or Blu-ray. To add further insult to injury, copies of Something’s Gotta Give abound, proving there’s no justice in this world, even when Diane Keaton is involved.

A Time to Kill (Tempo di uccidere) (1990)

Not to be confused with the racially-charged Matthew McConaughey legal thriller, this Italian film stars Nicolas cage as an soldier involved in Mussolini’s invasion of Ethiopia. I could try to write up a funny little description, but I don’t think I can top what I found on Wikipedia…

Lieutenant Silvestri suffers a toothache and decides to reach the nearest camp hospital. En route to the dentist his vehicle has an accident, and stops near a rock. Silvestri continues by walking. On his way, he meets and rapes a young Ethiopian woman. Despite this, he and the Ethiopian fall for each other. While taking refuge in a cave Silvestri shoots at a wild animal, but the bullet ricochets and hits the woman. Silvestri continues to the dentist. Upon reaching the hospital, he reads a medical book, leading him to believe he has leprosy. As he tries to escape from Ethiopia, Silvestri must evade his former comrades and reach his wife in Italy.

Rape? Toothaches? Leprosy? This film has it all. Unfortunately, if you want to see this overlooked Cage masterpiece, you’ll have to download a copy (which might be damn near impossible), or track down an old version being sold online. (Thanks to Ross McDermott for these suggestions).
