Holy fuckin’ shit, it’s October 25th!
The stars have aligned, Santa’s come to town, and Jesus has WISE-D FWOM HIS GWAVE!
I’m guessing you’re probably not aware of this, but for whatever reason a shit ton of cool movies are coming on video today!
I know DVD releases are traditionally on Tuesday’s, (no idea why) but this week is probably one of the biggest weeks, at least for me; that I can recall in recent memory.
First and foremost, we have the greatly anticipated blu-ray release of the Jurassic Park series pictured above.
I know I’m getting the first movie on it’s own, but time will tell whether I’ll be picking up a copy of The Lost World or not.
Moving on, Captain America: The First Avenger also drops today, hopefully with the cover pictured below:
Seriously man, I don’t what it is, but there are a lot of shitty alternate poster and DVD covers for Captain America floating around out there, so hopefully the one above is the one they actually printed.
Next up is the U.S. release of Attack the Block, which I’ve heard a lot of good things about, but honestly….. don’t have much interest in seeing:
I loves me some martial arts in my movies, but something about European extreme sports/parkour/horror-action-comedy movies just turns me off…
Probably has something to do with me not being cool/stoned enough to understand the appeal of the movie.
Next up is a documentary that struck my interest awhile back, The People vs. George Lucas:
The subject matter of this documentary could make for a lot of fun considering how much fodder Lucas has given his fans to work with over the years, not mention how passionate said fans can get whenever he gets the urge to fuck with their nostalgic treasures.
I definitely won’t be buying this one, but I would certainly like to see it someday.
Finally, and I might be the only dork on this blog that gives a damn about this one; the WWF (that’s right, I still call it that) is launching a new series of videos today in the form of a new documentary entitled Greatest Rivalries: Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart:
Again, I realize that this one is probably off most people’s radars, but hey; I typed up a little blurb about Attack the Block for you, so in exchange; you have to indulge my old-school wrestling fanboy-isms.
That being said, if the WWF’s track record on documentaries over the past few years is any indication, the interview/movie part of this one will likely be sappy and PG-ed the fuck out, but even so; the promise of a collection of these 2 masters of the ring’s best matches against one another is entirely worth the full price if you ask me.
Anyway, I listed off all of the shit I was psyched about for today, but like any other Tuesday, there’s plenty of other shit coming out that you might be interested in.
Go forth nerds! Purchase consumable entertainment and boost the U.S. economy!
