Hey, hey everyone.

This week you can get some bad horror, kickass action, a 3-pack of animation from Studio Ghibli and some Blu-Ray releases for films that I am surprised weren’t yet out for Blu-Ray. As usual, click on the images to be teleported to a land of wonder called Amazon. In this magical place, you can buy these DVDs and send some coins to help fill up the giant Scrooge McDuck-like money tower that Slate has been building.

Did I miss anything? Make sure to note it in the comments!



Maybe another substitute teacher will go to jail for showing this in her class. The first one of these was filled with hit / miss shorts so I imagine this will be too. Still worth checking out, I bet.


Kathy Bates naked. That enough to get you to buy this Blu-Ray release? No? Well FUCK YOU THEN! No, seriously, this is a good movie. Definitely worth checking out if you haven’t yet.


This is a satire about four black kids who face racism (and a black-face party) at an Ivy League school. Take out the part about this being a satire and you have what happens here in America everyday. But I do want to watch this. It was a surprise hit last year and my one black friend said it was hilarious.


Here is what Detective Dee had to say about this gem:

Dracula Untold is not a good movie, but it is not godawful either. It is one of those movies that makes you instantly forget about it as soon as you leave the theatre, as if you had never seen it.


This 1993 biopic about the legendary martial artist Bruce Lee didn’t do much for me when I saw it originally. But I am sure some people want to buy this Blu-Ray release. So go ahead. Click above. Send us some money.


Friends go out to party in the woods and get killed by Big Foot.



Do I want to see Simon Pegg write the next Star Trek movie? No. Do I generally like Simon Pegg’s films? Yes. Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Run Fatboy Run were all fun movies and I’ll be checking this one out.


I have heard so many great things about this badass action movie that I definitely need to check it out. In fact, when John Ary joined us in December to chat about our Top 3 Favorite Films of 2014, he mentioned this as one of his.


The guy in this movie looks a lot like Michael Douglas. Wonder if there is any relation… Anyway, this film is a biopic about the life and times of artist Vincent van Gogh. If you couldn’t tell by the DVD cover art, then maybe you should watch this and learn something.


I usually try to only do one “Nope” per DVD/Blu-Ray column. And I used that one before. But I guess if you were to infer I had a second “Nope” to use, it might be for this on. Like, for real, this looks like pure shit. An evil Ouija board? NO FUCKING SHIT! It’s as if first time director Stiles White (yes, that’s his fucking name) just opened up a camera and took a dump inside of it. Stiles did some special effects work on the Sixth Sense, Galaxy Quest, and more when he was at Stan Winston Studio. But he just had to direct his first movie and it just had to be this piece of garbage.


This is supposed to be really fucking good. When we spoke with Alexandre Rockwell a few months back he said he really liked it and Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises and Killing Them Softly) is supposed to be sensational in it. It is about a teen who gets transferred to an adult prison and meets the ultimate badass there … his dad!


From what I get from the IMDB description, some Hollywood actress sells her soul to become famous and has to kill or some shit. Meh.


The DVD cover screams out “THIS IS A FUCKING NICHOLAS SPARKS PIECE OF SHIT.” And guess what? It is.


Okay, so this really isn’t my cup of proverbial tea but for those into romance movies, this is supposed to be really good. This movie explores a couple’s relationship but it is broken into three films (one from Professor X’s point of view, one from Jessica Chastain’s point of view and one from both their perspectives). Apparently it is character driven and well written. So skip The Best of Me and watch this instead if that’s your sort of thing.


A documentary about broke, desperate men trying to make a living in the oil fields of North Dakota. I had no idea North Dakota had oil fields. So now I know.


I know what Nick Nightly is getting for his birthday this year!









Last, but not least, a trio of Studio Ghibli films for you to buy on Blu-Ray!

    So Starry Eyes is the story of Cobie Smulders?

  • I_am_better
  • Abe

    Never gets old.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Man, I fucking HATED “Run Fatboy Run.”

  • Fate_Slistcrunch

    Doesn’t surprise me.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    That was when I decided that outside of Sean of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, I really just don’t care for Simon Pegg.

  • Dee

    “Ouija” does not star Tawny Kitaen, so no interest.
    “Dragon” is pretty awful, but the fight with the giant iceblocks kicks ass.

  • I really liked Dragon but haven’t watched it since it first came out.

  • Definitely checking out Starred Up. Trailers for it are great.

    I also enjoy knowing you have one black friend.

  • Fate_Slistcrunch

    I couldn’t help but not to use that joke. It’s such a typical white person thing to say.

  • Dee

    It’s too kitschy… too many biopic cliches. The fights are good though. But they are not really “Bruce Lee fights”.

  • Bop

    I still have to watch Porco Rosso, damnit.

  • Bop

    Dan, dude, wtf? Go watch John Wick right now. Keanu kicks unholy ass in this top-notch action movie.

  • Bop

    I found Dracula Untold one of the best movies of last year, so sue me.

  • It was probably one of the first if not the first biopic I ever saw so I wouldn’t have noticed. Also was only just starting to get into Bruce Lee. Maybe I’ll revisit it someday. I recall the “dream” sequences terrifying me.

  • coolhandjuke

    Is it something one can masterbate to?

  • coolhandjuke

    Hank Azaria would never lend his name to an inferior product…

  • Stalkeye

    I have yet to see it, so I’ll reserve judgement of filing a Civil Suit. 😛

  • Stalkeye

    “”Dragon” is pretty awful,”

    I disagree. it was well made without coming off too grandiose. And Jason Scott lee’s performance was very good even if he couldn’t channel Bruce Lee as much. As a Biopic that detailed his rise to success, stardom, Hollywood bigotry and him standing up to the Chinese council who did not approve of him teaching westerners and Blacks the “art’, I was not disappointed.

    Bruce Lee was a (Say it…..! :P) Real American Hero, Dammit!

  • Stalkeye

    Ha! And I mentioned to Nick last week about Kathy Bates being Nekkid!
    Why couldn’t it at least been Helen Mirren undressed?!!?

  • Stalkeye

    It should be about Emma Stone. lookit those Eyes!


  • Dee

    Bruce Lee was a hero indeed…. but the biopic was far too glossy.

  • Stalkeye

    It was fine, I had no problems with it and any shout out to one of my favorite Role Models, is welcomed.
    (There’s also the Legend of Bruce Lee which I need to finish watching.)
    And what’s Fucked up is that Brandon was offered the part but felt it would be weird playing as his legendary Father.
    He decided to go with the Crow instead and sadly, the rest is history. /0:

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    I want to see Kathy Bates’ pancake belly in HD!

  • “…one of those movies that makes you instantly forget about it as soon as you leave the theatre”

    Somebody is else is doing a Michael Bay?

    You brave soul, you. (0;’
