Today’s New Releases
The Sure Thing, one of my favourite films of all time, FINALLY gets it’s DVD debut today!
Road trip movies aren’t easy to make. Sometimes they drag, sometimes that special sparkle isn’t there. But in “The Sure Thing,” you’re guaranteed to be charmed. It has everything you could want from a road picture: memorable little vignettes, quotable dialogue, and spectacular odball characters. The chemistry between John Cusack and Daphne Zuniga is perfect. Tim Robbins tormenting his passengers with showtunes is hysterical. But above all I say this…what makes this movie so special is its ability to actually infuse the viewer with a strong desire to live and grow. This movie isn’t just about cutting through heaps of differences to find your soulmate, it’s about being brave…to love life…to embrace the world. I promise you’ll come away feeling energized and passionate.
And if you don’t, well then just enjoy the DVD Features:
* Commentary by director Rob Reiner
* Never-Before-Seen “The Road to The Sure Thing” Featurette
* 3 New Mini-Featurettes on the Making of The Sure Thing
* Trivia Track
* Hidden Menu Features
* Widescreen anamorphic format
Okay, I’m off to wtach the movie!
Oh, but first, here are the other high profile movies bowing today, Tuesday, August 5th, 2003:
Bringing Down The House – A man uses the Internet to find date and lands an inmate in this “better than it should be” comedy. (Steve Martin, Queen Latifah [Charlene Morton], Eugene Levy [Howie Rottman])
Agent Cody Banks – A teen is recruited by the CIA to be a spy. Y’know, I meant to see this but unfortunately I didn’t have to. I’m sure its at least pretty good as it did make money at the box office. (Frankie Muniz, Hilary Duff, Angie Harmon)
What A Girl Wants – An American teenager finds out that her dad is British and goes to the U.K. to meet him. This is one for the 12 to 14 year old girls in your house. (Amanda Bynes, Colin Firth, Kelly Preston)
Irreversible – A couple’s brief encounter turns to violence. Sexual, explicit violence. This one is not for the tame of heart. (Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, Albert Dupontel)
The Cool And The Crazy – A mechanic’s wife has affair with a 1950s street punk. Ummm, who cares! (Alicia Silverstone, Jared Leto, Jennifer Blanc)
A Date With Anna Kournikova – You wish! Sorry, this is just the making of the Anna Kournikova calendar. (Anna Kournikova)
After today, the only movie that I want on DVD, that hasn’t already been announced of released, is Bill Murray’s “Quick Change.” I am pleased to welcome “The Sure Thing” to my collection!
