• Director's Series Vol. 6: Work of Director Anton Corbijn © 2005
Comments: Part of a great new series about music video directors. Anton's videos are always beautiful and you know what a fan of the eyecandy I am! Favorite videos by: Depeche Mode, Nirvana, U2, Dr. Mabuse, Echo and The Bunnymen, Henry Rollins, The Killers. One of those great must-have DVDs for your collection. Great to put on during a party and let it work its magic.
• Gladiators 7/Invincible Gladiator © 1962/1964
Comments: I'm a sucker for the cheesy, oiled-up hunk/sword 'n sandals movies. Eyecandy.
• Moon of the Wolf/Prisoner In the Middle © 1972/1977
Comments: I love the made-for-TV movies of the 70's (not to mention the ones about werewolves!), so naturally I had to have this one. You can't beat it for $1 (Family Dollar store)
• Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law: Volume 1 © 2000
Comments: God, I love this show! If you've never seen it, here's a quick synopsis: Harvey Birdman, the superhero formerly known as Birdman, is now practicing (and dimwitted) lawyer. His cases always involve legal disputes between cartoon chracters. Past cases involve custody of Jonny Quest, a copyright infringement case between the Chan Clan and Jabberjaw, and Fred Flintstone's possible mob connections. SUCH an ingenious way to breathe new life into old Hanna Barbera classic cartoons! Check it out!!
• In Dreams © 1999
Comments: I saw this one in the theaters. I remember coming out being a little disappointed with the actual movie itself, but visually, it was beautiful and surreal. Totally worth it for the visuals. Plus, it doesn't hurt that Robert Downey, Jr. is one of the stars. ROWR! He purty!
• The New Three Stooges: 2 Hours of Cartoons © 1965
Comments: Another dollar store DVD. I'm a cartoon-lover, so this was a no-brainer.
• Devour © 2005
Comments: One word: Jensen Ackles. DAMN! He's beautiful. He's from here in Dallas, too. Weird. Movie is stinky, but it was cheap and he looks good, so it all balances out.
• Eulogy © 2004
Comments: I've been wanting to see this movie forever, so when I saw the 4 for $20 special, this one was a shoe in. Debra Winger is fuckin' hilarious as the neurotic shrew! And even Ray Romano, who I O.D.'ed on a lonnnnng time ago (not everyone loves Raymond!), made me laugh. And of course, Piper Laurie is great, as usual and Jesse Bradford is always a cutie. Funny movie.
• Fantastic 4 © 2005
Comments: I bought his for the eyecandy: Chris Evans (whose character I hated in this movie, BTW) and Julian McMahon ROWR! It was "okay," but I have to admit I was a little disappointed. I'm gonna have to take my friend Nathan's stance on the Marvel movies from now on: approach with caution.
• Happy Endings © 2005
Comments: I haven't seen this one yet, but I sooo wanted to when it was at the theater. Love Lisa Kudrow and Bobby Cannavale is a GOD! Double ROWR! I'm sorta putting this one off because it also co-stars Tom Arnold (who I HATE) and Maggie Gyllenhaal, whose face irks me for some reason. Her brother (Jake) is so hot, though! Genetics are weird.
• Tom & Jerry and Friends: 2 Hours of Cartoons © 40's-60's
Comments: More dollar store cartoons!
• Highwaymen © 2003
Comments: Another cheapie that I bought instead of rented. Looks promising. The trailer stressed me out, so I bet it's a good one.
• Surviving Christmas © 2004
Comments: Pure eyecandy: Ben Affleck That's about it. Otherwise, zero interest (plus, it was cheap).
• Rabid © 1977
Comments: My friend Nathan gave me this DVD recently (as well as the next 5 on this list), and I have to admit I have always wanted to see it...but haven't. It looks like it will stress me out! Cronenberg's movies are always so fuckin' weird. I'm gonna watch this one with the lights on!
• Dog Day Afternoon © 1975
Comments: I must be the only male with a penis who doesn't get an erection over Al Pacino movies. Maybe it's a straight guy thing. I don't necessarily dislike him, I'm just indifferent. If he made more movies with premises I was interested in (i.e. Serpico, Cruising, Author! Author!, Heat, Dick Tracy, The Devil's Advocate, And Justice For All), I'd see more of his movies.
I haven't seen this one, but it's considered a "classic" by straight men en masse, so I'll give it a shot. Heck, maybe I'll even be motivated to watch my Godfather trilogy or rent Scarface and finish it this time. Who knows!
• Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland © 1989
Comments: I won 1 and 2, so now I officially own the trilogy. Fun 80's slasher flick, though the sequels were nowhere near as fun as the one that started them all! The original Sleepway Camp has one of my all-time favorite movie posters. Great!
• Da Ali G Show: Season 1 © 2000
Comments: This show had me cracking UP the first time Nathan let me borrow it. Can't wait to watch it all over again. Ali G is great!
• Pyscho IV: The Beginning © 1990
Comments: I remember what a big deal this was when it premiered on one of the movie channels (it was originally a made-for-cable movie). I forget if it was HBO or Showtime, but I remember the anticipation! Olivia Hussey is always great, so it was cool to see her in something scary again (i.e. Black Christmas, The Cat and the Canary)!
• Zombie 4 © 1988
Comments: I am so not a zombie movie fan, but when one of my friends pointed out that gay porn star (legend?) Jeff Stryker (pictured) was in this movie, naturally I had to see it for myself. It was just too weird for me to see him in a real movie with an actual plot and stuff. I remember what a big deal (no pun intended) he was back in the late 80's, early 90's (and still is to his fans, I'm sure), so I rented one of his "instructional videos" ack int he early 90's. Eh. It was okay. To be honest, even though he is known for his "endowment," (which, personally, I could so not care any less about) I was much more interested in his face and bod. He had some great pecs "back in the day," and a sexy, pouty mouth. MWAH! I also have to say, he has a DYNAMITE voice. SO friggin' deep 'n sexy! I do love that about him. However, he's lookin' mighty haggard these day (you would too if you fucked for a living), yet he's still workin' his mojo for his fans...I suppose. Sorry folks, but it's all about Zeb Atlas now. Lol! What, me fickle? Surely you jest!
