Maxed Out I'm still scared to see this
Norbit Eddie Murphy smothered in latex, Oscarless.
(Murphy fans: Coming To America also gets a special today)
Welcome Home Roxy Carmichael I saw this in theaters in 1990 when it was released to cash in on the Winona Ryder craze. Beetlejuice and Heathers had created her fanbase. Edward Scissorhands and Mermaids were just two months away and would bring said fanbase to fever pitch, especially once paired with the Johnny Depp romance. I remember literally nothing about this particular movie other than a) I was excited to see it and b) I was surprised to find that Noni did not play a character named Roxy Carmichael.
for Oscar Watchers
The Sand Pebbles The Steve McQueen Navy drama that was nominated for (and lost) eight Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor --it was McQueen's only nomination.
The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert --this hilarious Aussie drag comedy, already a classic, gets a special edition called "extra frills". Remember when it famously won the costume Oscar? One of its designers accepted the statue in a dress made of gold credit cards. Pretty impressive stuff. The accomplishment is even more impressive when you realize how great the costume category was that year. Queen Margot and Bullets Over Broadway would've been likely (and worthy) winners in other years. If I ran the world that would not have been Priscilla's only nomination either. Terence "no more f***ing ABBA" Stamp for best actor! Can I get backup on that?
other special editions
Jackass the Movie / Jackass Number Two
I have actually seen both of these (surprise!). The first was a rude hilarious blast to watch with friends. The second bored me silly. And I even saw it with the same friends. And I even still love them just as much. I thought this review @ Pajiba was classic: more entertaining than the movie.
Meatballs Bill Murray plays camp counselor in this popular '79 comedy. As camp comedies though, I gotta have Wet Hot American Summer. I just gotta have it.
be very afraid
Elektra (unrated directors cut) and Fantastic Four (extended)
These movies were bad enough in theatrical form. Now they're even longer? Sometimes technology is very very cruel. DVDs make movie watching so much easier but they also cause this sort of indulgence. Oh the humanity...
