It's Tuesday, so that means all the new VHS releases are hitting the stores today. So run down to your local Suncoast or Circuit City to pick these up. Kevin James is excited. Why aren't you.
The Green Hornet - I still haven't seen this but that will change soon as I hit Redbox on the way home. I thought it looked pretty good, and a serious Kato opposite of a goofy Hornet is more true to the series's roots. The general opinion is this film is pretty good, not great, and the 45% at Rotten Tomatoes just about confirms that. What do you think?
The Dilemma - I actually like Kevin James, but do I hate Vince Vaughan. The movie is rounded out by an interesting cast -- Jennifer Connelly, Winona Ryder, Channing Tatum, Queen Latifah -- to say the least. I never would have guessed this is directed by Ron Howard. I would also never guess this is any good. It's a bromance (worst term ever) between two people who love Chicago, and they are filmed just doing normal everyday things that the actors do in real life. Sounds thrilling. The NHL has a great track record of getting behind horrible films (see The Tooth Fairy and the Love Guru).
From Dusk Till Dawn - Vampires, Mexicans, strippers, and Cheech Martin in three different roles. It's one of my personal favorites, now on Blu-Ray. It looks like a bare-bones release, but at $10 on Amazon it's a great time to check it out if you haven't before. Besides, it stars two of my top ten actors who should play Osama. Hmmm? "Also Available in VHS Tape 109 used & new from $0.01". Now that's a deal.
Kung-Fu Dunk - An interesting looking Chinese movie in the same vein as the great Shaolin Soccer. It stars Jay Chou aka Kato. Surely this being released alongside the Green Hornet is mere coincidence.
Bonnie & Clyde vs. Dracula - At first I brushed this aside, but then I saw it stars Tiffany Shepis, the reigning Queen of B-Movies. She alone is worth it. I do have to give the creators originally points for this title.
