Bought a couple of VCD’s yesterday.

  • She’s The One
  • Donnie Darko
  • Thir13en Ghosts
  • K-PAX

    I actually haven’t seen She’s The One yet. No, it’s not a new movie. It’s actually been out for years now. For those of you who don’t know, it’s sort of the sequel to The Brothers McMullen. Good movie. I have it on laserdisc.


    I thought i’d pick it up because:

    a. I haven’t watched it before.


    b. I hear there’s a scene with Jennifer Aniston in her lingerie.

    That alone warrants a viewing.

    I was actually surprised to see Donnie Darko on the shelves. The movie isn’t even out yet. Heck, they’ve only just released the trailer on the Apple trailers site a coupla days ago. It looks pretty good. Really um… dark. Should be good.

    Then again that’s what i also said about Thir13en Ghosts and look how that movie turned out.

    For the record, i haven’t actually watched it yet but i hear it got some pretty bad reviews. OH WELL. I still wanna watch it anyway. Besides, any movie with Shannon Elizabeth in it can’t be too bad.

    Okay Tomcats was pretty bad but let’s just pretend it doesn’t exist.

    K-PAX. I don’t know why i bought that movie.

    In DVD news, the Shrek Two Disc Special Edition just came out. And is it ever LOADED. A purported 11 hours (!) worth of extra stuff. But i seriously doubt that it even amounts to that… still, it’s cool to think, “Wow! I’m paying good money on 11 potential hours of DVD goodness! Coolness!”.

    The DVD’s worth buying alone for the Shrek In the Swamp Karaoke Dance Party extra. It is FUCKING hilarious. Next to the hidden extra on the Final Fantasy DVD where you get to see Aki in a bikini, it’s probably the best extra ever.

    The Basic Instinct Special Edition Unrated Director’s Cut is also a pretty good DVD to own. The packaging’s kinda funky though. With absolutely nothing to indicate that it’s ‘Basic Instinct’ on it’s spine. It’ll look pretty crap stacked next to all your other DVD’s. But hey, you get a little cool pen that looks like an ice pick. And that extra where they compare the the movie with the version shown on TV is just ridiculously funny.

    Monty Python And The Holy Grail. I just finished watching it. It is such a classic. Some of the dialogue in there is just laugh out loud hilarious.

    “I fart in your general direction!”

    Oh boy. And that scene in that castle with all those women. Had me in absolute stitches. It was thigh slappingly good.

    Classic, classic movie. Loaded DVD. A MUST buy if you consider yourself to be a DVD collector.

    I need to get Monty Python’s Life Of Brian on DVD someday. But the current edition they have out is pretty bare bones. Somebody needs to do a special edition of it.

    By the way, please do not watch Bones. That Snoop Dogg horror movie.

    It’s fucking terrible.

  • One thought on “VCD’s/DVD’s

    1. Hi Justin,

      That must be 20 years od by now. Is a classic.
      My favourite bit:

      ARTHUR: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!

      WOMAN: Order, eh — who does he think he is?

      ARTHUR: I am your king!

      WOMAN: Well, I didn’t vote for you.

      ARTHUR: You don’t vote for kings.

      WOMAN: Well, ‘ow did you become king then?

      ARTHUR: The Lady of the Lake, [angels sing] her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king!

      DENNIS: Listen — strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

      ARTHUR: Be quiet!

      DENNIS: Well you can’t expect to wield Supreme Executive Power just ’cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!

      Life of Brian is better.
