Win The Way Back on DVD!

The Way Back DVD

It’s The Way Back, hitting DVD from Image on April 19th. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Starring four-time Oscar® nominee Ed Harris (Apollo 13), Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe), Oscar® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement) and Colin Farrell (In Bruges), this is an epic saga of survival; a trial of humanity and strength. The year is 1940, and seven prisoners have daringly escaped from a brutal Siberian gulag. But they find that having escaped one prison they are now surrounded by another: the brutal, unforgiving Siberian landscape. But freedom is tempting and the men begin a treacherous 4,500-mile trek, with little food and supplies. Their trust in each other is even less, but in order to withstand nature at its most terrifying extremes, they must learn to rely on each other and overcome their suspicions. Their compassion is further tested when they meet a teenage runaway who begs to join them on their quest.

Trailer? Sure thing:

Appaloosa DVD cover art

I knew Ed Harris was directing a western–and that was a cool enough idea considering how much I enjoyed Pollock. But Appaloosa also has Viggo Mortensen, Renee Zellweger and Jeremy Irons as well. Irons plays the heavy. Nice. You know what else is nice? We got five copies of this thing to give away. To win, just enter using the form below. And you can use that form once a day–that’s once a day, not once every twenty-four hours. We draw five names and they win. Hoobah lovely.

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!

Your Weekend Justice

Sloshing through the swamp of pop culture so you don’t have to. We bring you ideas for how to waste your weekend. Tried to get this up yesterday, I know, I said so in the recording, but that’s what I get for thinking.

Of course, special thanks go out to Clutch for letting me use their absolutely badass song, “Promoter (of earthbound causes)” as my theme music for this.

Buy Blast Tyrant, which is where you can find “Promoter”. Buy their latest album, Pitchforks and Lost Needles. Send them love and coin.

BTW, you iTunes subscriber types can nab this feed here.

Or if you want to do something else with it, the feed feed is here.

Like the podcast? Tell us about it. Fill out a PodTrac Survey today. The Baby Jesus would want you to.
