Blu-ray Review: The Counselor Unrated Extended Cut
BAADASSSSS!   |  

The Counselor

The Counselor: Unrated Extended Cut
Blu-ray l DVD
Directed by Ridley Scott
Screenplay by Cormac McCarthy
Starring Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment
Release Date: February 11, 2014

Of all the highly anticipated films released last year I don’t think any of them received the critical blanket party that greeted the opening of The Counselor, the pulpy drug world thriller that united influential filmmaker Ridley Scott (Blade Runner) and Pulitzer Prize-adorned author Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men, Blood Meridian), the latter having penned his first original feature screenplay. To say that expectations were high for this film is an understatement on the level of the scene in Easy Rider where Peter Fonda tells Dennis Hopper, “We blew it.”

People hated this movie, man. Hated it. Obviously The Counselor had its share of defenders amongst the filmgoing public and the shadowy agents of the blogosphere, but they were mostly silenced or shouted down as the star-studded noir plummeted to a 34% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a massively disappointing fourth opening at the box office. Scott has had his considerable share of theatrical flops that were later vindicated on home video in the form of extended and rejiggered director’s cuts. Not surprisingly, his latest film has received the same treatment and The Counselor may yet find the audience that either berated or ignored it on the big screen as twenty minutes have been added to this exclusive “unrated extended cut.”

Do these previously deleted scenes elevate Scott and McCarthy’s lurid, languid potboiler to the status of an underrated masterpiece? Is it possible that maybe, just maybe, the haters were hopelessly misguided? Well, let’s see…

DVD Review: Toad Road
Ryan Midnight   |  

Toad Road DVD CoverToad Road
DVD | Amazon Instant
Directed by Jason Banker
Written by Jason Banker
Starring James Davidson, Sara Anne Jones, Whitleigh Higuera, Jamie Siebold, Scott Rader
Artsploitation Films
Release Date: December 17, 2013

Urban legend has it that on a long winding trail in the woods outside York, PA there are seven gates that will lead you to the doorway to Hell. As you pass through each gate, you hallucinate more and more, and time and reality supposedly become meaningless. The only problem is that no one has ever made it past the fifth gate.

For new-to-town Sara, who has fallen in with a rambunctious and directionless band of twenty-somethings focused only on the next drug high, this legend becomes all-consuming. Though her boyfriend James tries to get her mind off it, Sara becomes singularly focused on discovered just what happens on Toad Road. And with a dropper of acid at the ready, Sara begins her fateful trip down the road.

Meeting somewhere between a pseudo-documentary due to how the film is shot and student art film that desperately wants to look between-the-lines of reality and fantasy, Toad Road is a meandering journey through a group of kids’ lives as they try to have a good time and enjoy each others’ company as they bake their brain.

Stoogeypedia   |  

batman-1966-tv-series-still

Batman, the seminal 1966 – 1968 series which originally ran on ABC-TV and became a zeitgeist sensation with its camp and tongue in cheek humor, while still based on Bob Kane’s comic book, is finally getting the nod on DVD.

As Tweeted by talk show loon Conan O’Brien and later confirmed by WB, the series, which had been plagued for years with likeness rights and a sundry amount of other business related issues which held up a firm and proper release, will be released via Warner Brothers Home Entertainment later this year as a complete box set. Details to follow, but this is cause célèbre for legions and generations of fans who have waited in earnest and with extreme patience for this series to finally come to home market fruition.

DVD Review: Marvel Knights: Wolverine Vs. Sabretooth

Marvel Knights: Wolverine Vs. SabretoothWolverine vs. Sabretooth
DVD
Based on the comic written by Jeph Loeb
Screenplay adapted by Jeph Loeb
Illustrated by Simone Bianchi
Directed by Carl Upsdell
Shout! Factory
Not Rated | 66 Minutes
Release Date: January 14, 2014
Cover Price: $14.97

Welcome, one and all, to the world of Marvel Knights and the animated features available therein. This week I am pleased to bring you the motion comic Marvel Knights: Wolverine Versus Sabretooth. I will admit that I’m still on the fence as to whether I like this medium or not. I do appreciate that it’s one more way to grab the attention of folks who might otherwise not pick up a comic, but I wonder sometimes if this format will stand the test of time.

If you are unaware of how this all works then allow me to enlighten you. Taking the original comic, frame by frame, parts are dissected and given life by allowing for some basic movement on screen. By stringing together the panels, we are given some fairly clean motion that preserves the integrity of the source material…mostly. Sometimes, as with all adaptations, parts of the original must be sacrificed for the sake of fluidity and continuity. This particular motion comic seemed to be more or less intact, though it might still confuse the newbies.
