Now I can die happy

The film that I’ve been wanting to see, the film that just might be the greatest unintentional laugh riot of the decade, is finally coming to DVD. I’m talking about N’Secure which Fox Home Video (Fox???) is releasing on June 14th; it stars Denise Boutte (the woman with the fantabulous weave with the porn star’s […]

The brothers’ No. 1 favorite film finally coming out on Blu-ray

Is there a film that brothers love more deeply and intensely than Brian DePalma’s 1982 film  Scarface? I mean, is there? His over-the-top, hyper-violent, yet visually stylish remake of Howard Hawks’ 1932 classic gangster film is in itself a classic, maybe a masterpiece of epic proportions. It’s perhaps the seminal film of the 1980′s, made back […]

On DVD Today… “Takers” (Formerly Known As “Bone Deep”)

Already? It seems like it was just a few weeks ago that I saw it in theaters. But it was actually released last August. How time flies! Anyway, the $32 million movie grossed close to $70 million worldwide. Not bad at all. It should do brisk business on DVD/VOD/Blu-ray. As I already indicated, I saw […]
