I don't mean to sound so snarky because against my better judgment I am actually curious to see this. But like I said back in February...
I'm sure it would be better if Mo'Nique was in it.
Unfortunately for us, Mo'Nique's buzzy picture Precious, the movie that once shared this film's name, is not available for our viewing until November 6th. We can't wait.
Also on DVD
- Box office hit Knowing which I had hoped to see nominated for abundant Razzies including Worst Actor in Perpetuity Nicolas Cage [my review]. Unfortunately Roger Ebert shoved his thumbs way up into its dumb deterministic disaster porn and thus saved it from its deserved fate.
- The Unborn, a horror movie about a twin that never made it and is angry about it. Carla Gugino and Gary Oldman appear for reasons that only their managers or bank accounts can explain. Where are the projects for these two actors? But the plot got me to thinking about a fantasy book that spins on this same, malevolent dead twin theme called The Bone Doll's Twin. If you like fantasy books, I recommend.
- I had no idea that the stars of the scary Joy Ride (2001), Steve Zahn and Leelee Sobieski, reunited for another thriller. They did. It's called Night Train and it went straight to DVD.
- And though it's not its first time on DVD, Kathryn Bigelow's vampire cult classic Near Dark (1987) has also been rereleased today... to coincide with all the hoopla regarding her work on The Hurt Locker? Maybe not. There's been no publicity to celebrate the connection. That's too bad.
