Picked up American Hero on BD, Death Kiss on DVD, and the CD soundtracks for Speed Racer and Night at the Museum.

Has anyone seen the Blu for The Humanity Bureau lately? I see that it was included in a batch last year but I never found it. Not sure if it's been included again in recent batches.

I actually just bought a sealed slipcovered copy from Ebay for $5. Way cheaper than spending the gas to check every other DT within driving distance. Thanks for the offer though.

I watched Cupid, and Uncork'd release, just a while ago. Don't waste your time.
Wait, they have movies at Dollar 25 Tree?

I keep meaning to do this as Uncork'd comes up every once in a while, in a negative light.

Here are some (all?) of the Uncork'd DVD's I felt were good enough to hang onto:





I especially loved Driven, The Ranger, and The Night Sitter. Driven is freaking stellar, though the horror element is kind of limited to the framework of the movie. What it lacks in scares or gore, it more than makes up for with cracking dialogue. The same group of people work on more movies together, and I went so far as to seek out other stuff by them. Apparently they don't want to be pigeonholed, and Driven was the best I saw. DT purchase.

Looking back on these, Nightmare Radio wasn't very good, but it is an anthology, so there must've been something in there I liked. Crawl or Die describes the entire premise. Stalled has the (very) limited location/limited cast thing I like so much, and does some clever zombie stuff. D-Railed I thought had an intriguing premise, but kind of veers off into a direction I didn't expect. I don't remember Getaway, but I kept it at the time.

In all fairness, I've seen equally as many bad Uncork'd movies. So, 50/50? That is horror for ya. Here's one I just watched the other night (pretty sure this is a DT purchase, I'd hate myself if I paid more than a dollar and change):



Ouch, I wasted an evening on this?

Mistake #1: This is a period piece. It is made abundantly clear that this task was far too much to take on. Or this filmmaker thought it'd be "cool," got lazy, and totally dropped the ball. Literally, they got some old cars, some old bicycles, and a s#!t-ton of typewriters. Yeah, nothing says 1979 like those 3 things. The music throughout is clearly modern (the one 70's song they got the rights to was from soft-as-a-baby's-butt rock schlocksters Bread, and even that song had to be butchered), some of the kids at school dress like pimps, and there are references to the 80's and 90's! Oh, why am I bothering?

They Reach is (almost) entirely populated by non-actors, striving to be B-level. The two young ladies show everyone up, as they are the sole enjoyable element of this mess (Mary Madaline Roe as Jessica, and Eden Campbell as Cheddar). They didn't even need the fat kid. And how this blubbery, D-grade acting, dork with braces is anyone's love interest, well, I can only guess that's modern, PC filmmaking. "All-inclusive." I was hoping to see Mary Madaline's face after having to make out with him in the DVD bloopers. To add insult to injury, at one stage of the movie, Cheddar vanishes. Then reappears briefly during a totally nonsensical ending. Baffling. She probably told her agent, "Get me the hell out of this movie."

It is competently lit and shot. Hey, I found another positive!

So there's this symbol related to a reel-to-reel recorder that feeds on blood and can open a "gate," doppelgangers are somehow an element, there are a bunch of evil hands, people get pulled under stuff, someone/thing pulls Jessica's sheets off, and the world's most idiotic dad spouts inanity and bad parenting. So, the girl gets blood on the recorder, and is subsequently marked, chosen, possessed, a sacrifice, or all of the above. If you can make sense of all this, well good for you.

Ohhhhh, "they reach." Yeah, that's a good one.

FTR, I was borderline-offended by Camp Cold Brook.



It's no wonder this guy's show got cancelled!

Jack's hosting a ghost hunting show on the brink of being cancelled. He and his irritable workers (Angela, Kevin, and Emma) arrive at Camp Cold Brook for one last hurrah, in an effort to earn another season.

All this movie did was leave me with a bunch of nagging questions. What does the "new girl" (Emma) do on the show (besides cop an attitude)? This is never established in the entire running time. Jack has done 3 seasons of Haunt Squad, and he says he hasn't seen anything? And they let him go 3 seasons? (Assuming he's a big phony?) I've watched a lot of these ghost hunting shows, and the majority of the time they come up with something interesting, and present it with some context and history, which offers intrigue. Why watch a ghost hunting show that can't find anything?? And how are they supposed to get this blockbuster show if they're not filming? WTF. They are supposedly "scouting the location" throughout this film. And it is thrilling watching them wander around. No sense of place, just random locations. In one rare instance, Angela gets out her camera. Then the ghosts only appear on her camera?? And she doesn't show it to anyone? Wouldn't this be great material for their comeback show? Hello?!

Where does everyone go at night if they're just scouting? (For that matter, where IS everyone half the time?) Wouldn't this be more effective in the daytime? How is every piece of paper they've got, crumpled up? What is with Kevin's hipster dufus hat? I absolutely loathed this character. He's like a long lost surly Franco brother. How did the sherrif find Jack's mom if she didn't leave any contact information? They're pulled over at the side of some random road! I LOL-ed when I saw Jack sitting in the hospital with his head bandaged up like a cartoon character. And last, but not least, how did Danielle Harris and Joe Dante get associated with this disaster?

Ok, this movie is about ghost hunters and we hardly see any ghost hunting. To make matters worse, they've apparently "solved" the problem of the small percentage of people who get motion sickness. They (by "they" I mean two of them, who actually filmed one scene a piece) carry around these mini Steadicams. So all the "found footage" is steady! IMHO, this makes it much less effective.

There is a discussion on here between the writer and the director as an extra. I flat-out disagreed with several things that were said. Then they showed the original opening. They opted to go the "re-enactment" route?! My entire experience with this Blu-ray was puzzling (and infuriating).

The scariest thing about this movie is when the audio goes out of sync for a couple minutes, around the hour mark. Literally, that scared me more than anything. This movie was so poorly conceived, shot, and edited, that I want to appeal to Amazon, to let me give this movie less than one star.

I didn't like Night of Horror. It had some good makeup, but I didn't care for the shorts. I wish I picked up Ranger since it's a Shudder film. I had it in my hands, but Im pretty sure I saw the Uncork'd label on the side and put it back. Someone on here (maybe you) mentioned it was a Shudder release months later.

Just to chime in on Uncork'd -- the ones I've watched that I thought were pretty good were Crying Wolf (sort of a British werewolf comedy) and The Jurassic Games (a mash-up of Hunger Games and Jurassic Park). I wasn't a fan of Stalled, though, as I just didn't think the comedy was very strong despite the interesting and creative premise.

Stopped by a store yesterday and saw the Mexican release of One Direction: This Is Us. Not unusual and I've seen it before, except there was also one copy of the 3D blu-ray, which I picked up for completist purposes. I already had the U.S. 3D release, but for $1.25, why not?

Stopped by today and picked up:



Been hoping to find Terminal for awhile now since it has a great cast. Left right on top of the pile facing up so looks like someone passed on the only copy left at my store.

Iím sure Everfall and Righteous Villains are going to suck but the covers look interesting enough for $1.25 a piece.

Disturbia is a nice bonus since I know thatís a good movie already.
