    Win The Company Men on DVD!

    Company Men DVD

    It’s The Company Men, out from The Weinstein Company and Anchor Bay on DVD. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

    In THE COMPANY MEN, Bobby Walker (Affleck) is living the American Dream, until he is stunned to find himself the latest casualty of corporate downsizing. Suddenly, Bobby – along with his co-workers Phil Woodward (Chris Cooper) and Gene McClary (Tommy Lee Jones) – is forced to re-evaluate his self-worth as a husband, as a father, and as a man. For as long as he can remember, he’s given his life to his job. Now, with only the love of his wife and family, it’s time to take his life back.

    With humor, pathos, and keen observation, writer-director John Wells introduces us to the new realities of American life, as THE COMPANY MEN fight to regain their dignity and transcend their situations. An astute exploration of the human spirit, the film portrays the struggles of individuals at every level of the economic ladder as they try to reconnect with the things that matter most in life, and re-establish a sense of identity separate from their jobs.

    Stuff: The Sci-Fi Channel Wants You Too, Malachi. It Wants You Too.

    Deadworld
  • Framelight Productions has Deadworld on its slate to send into moviesville. They have some other project as well, but this is the only one we recognize. So. Anyway, here’s a question: what happened to the old project? George Clooney was attached to produce back in the 1999 timeframe, and Todd Alcott (co-writer on Antz) had apparently scribed up something for it. Mark Pavia (Night Flier) was attached to helm. It was then over at Maysville and Warner Brothers. But then the rights expired in 2003, and here we are again. I’m fine with this going for the big screen–let’s save Walking Dead for HBO or Showtime, okay? Source: Hollywood Reporter.
  • Ben Affleck is in talks to star in, rescribe and helm The Town. It’s based on the novel Prince of Thieves by Chuck Hogan, who previously revised the script by Peter Craig. Adrian Lyne was previously attached to direct. The story is about a bank manager, the thief who stole her heart, and the FBI agent who’s also got a bit of a crush. On the female bank manager, I mean. Shame Robin Hood stole the original title, huh? Source: Hollywood Reporter.

    Headsup for February 23, 2008

    An ongoing attempt to make sense of the onslaught of new swag that people want you to buy. Should you? I’ll try and help.

    The Aristocats Special Edition DVD Cover Art

    Becoming Jane DVD Cover Art

    The Aristocats is back in a special edition, and while it’s not one of Disney‘s full-on Platinum Editions, it has a little bit to warrant it. A little, anyway. Mostly, the transfer is updated and looks a lot better than the previous release. But beyond that, there’s just bits and pieces that would interest us, since most kids find DVD player games about as interesting as a shoe that they can’t see. You get a deleted song, four minutes with the Brothers Sherman talking about the songs from the film (four minutes!), a gallery, and then two other pieces that are included because they have cats in them. First, a bit from the Disneyland series with Walt talking about cat history and the short “Bath Day” which has Figaro the cat in it. And that’s it. No commentary. Granted, this isn’t ranked up there with a Snow White or a Sleeping Beauty, but at least give us something. Ideally, Disney needs to start selling DVDs that appeal to both adults and children–like their classic films do. Put the hardcore Criterion-esque stuff on one disc, put the kid-friendly stuff on the second disc. I can solve problems like this–my rates are very reasonable. Anyway, if you don’t already own this, it’s worth having just for the film and the new transfer, especially if you have kids. (Click here to buy it from Amazon.)

    Win Gone Baby Gone on DVD!

    Gone Baby Gone DVD cover art

    Ben Affleck may be saving his career by switching to directing. That’s the buzz, anyway, as his directorial debut, Gone Baby Gone, has impressed the hell out of critics in a way that his Matt Murdock never could. And you know what? Good on him, dammit. Because I’ve always liked the guy and wanted him to get some better work in, honestly.

    So if you want to see what everybody’s talking about, then you need to check out his brother Casey, Ed Harris, Morgan Freeman and Amy Madigan in this noir flick. Bonus bits include: commentary by Ben Affleck and the scribe Aaron Stockard plus deleted scenes with the same; an extended ending; a behind the scenes featurette; and a casting featurette.

    We’ve got three copies to give away…so if you want them, you have to enter! Proceed!

    Gigli (2003) – DVD Review

    Gigli DVD cover art

    Film:
    DVD:

    Written & Directed by Martin Brest
    Starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Lenny Vinito, Justin Bartha, and Christopher Walken

    Released by: Columbia TriStar
    Rating: R
    Region: 1
    Anamorphic: Yes.

    My Advice: Avoid it.

    Larry Gigli (Affleck) is a muscle man for a young, up-and-coming thug in L.A named Louis (Vinito). He’s been tasked with kidnapping and holding Brian (Bartha), the mentally challenged brother of a federal prosecutor. The hope is that the kidnapping will put some pressure on the prosecutor to cut a deal on the prosecution of a friend of Louis’ back in New York. It seems, however, that Louis doesn’t think that Gigli is quite up to the challenge, so he hires Ricki (Lopez) to help Gigli make sure the job is done right. Ricki is pretty hot, but there’s a bit of a snag; she’s a lesbian. Will they be able to learn to work together?
