New DVD Announcements
Yep, yet another edition of Sam Raimi’s cult classic Army of Darkness is on the way. On March 4th, the money grubbing bastards at Anchor Bay Home Entertainment will release The Boomstick Edition, a two-disc set that virtually replicates the two-disc set originally released a few years back (not to mention the myriad of single-disc permutations released since.) Featuring new packaging and an 8-page booklet, extras are plentiful. Disc one features anamorphic widescreen and full screen versions, the original ending presented as a supplement, the featurette “The Men Behind The Army” narrated by Bruce Campbell, talent bios and the trailer. Disc two features the extended cut of the film with 15 minutes of additional footage presented in anamorphic widescreen, an audio commentary by Raimi, Campbell and co-writer Ivan Raimi, and four deleted scenes. Retail is $29.95 but I don’t care as I won’t be buying it!
What About Miles One Through Seven?
Just in are the full specs for Eminem’s smash motion picture debut 8 Mile, due March 18th from Universal Studios Home Video. Available in separate anamorphic widescreen and full screen versions, each will come with Dolby Digital English and French 5.1 surround tracks, an interview with Eminem, a tour of 8 Mile Road in Detroit with director Curtis Hanson, “The Music of 8 Mile” featurette, never-before-seen “rap battles,” a new music video from “The Eminem Show,” and trailers.
Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment has finally announced the full specs and episode lists for Married…With Children – The Most Outrageous Episodes, Volume 1 and Volume 2. Each includes five episodes presented in full screen and English 2.0 Dolby stereo, plus the featurette “A Salute to Sinatra” (on both volumes) and bonus trailers. Episodes on Volume 1 include “A Dump of My Own,” “You Better Shop Around (Parts 1 & 2),” “No Chicken, No Check,” and the “I’ll See You in Court (The Lost Episode),” while Volume 2 includes “A Man’s Castle,” “Raingirl,” “Have You Driven a Ford Lately,” “If Al Had a Hammer,” and “Who’ll Stop the Rain?” Retail is $19.95 each.
Seriously, they are money grubbing bastards!
