Another Tuesday

One that isn't going to see very many noteworthy DVD's at that. No matter, I have a few other things to touch on as well, so let's get to it.

In The Cut

I know nothing about this except it stars Meg Ryan looking very unappealing. It has something to do with murder, so it may be a mystery.

Intolerable Cruelty

One of the most disappointing movies of last year comes to DVD in time for Valentine's Day. It's a Coehn Bros. film, and probably worth a look for fans, but be warned, it's not half as clever as any of their other work.

The Lion King 1 1/2

Watch the events from the first film through the eyes of Timon & Pumba. Looks promising, but may end up being a dud. I'll let you know.

Sitting Ducks: Season 1 Quack Pack

Quite the entertaining cartoon, it used to air afternoons on Cartoon Network. I recommend this to anyone with young children, it's very amusing.


Based on the 1981 Wonderland Ave murders, this film features an all star cast, and a promising storyline. It's one I'm really interested in, so expect a review sometime soon.

X-Men Evolution: Powers Revealed

Finally, we get more episodes of this excellent toon on DVD. Sadly, it's been cancelled, but at least they're putting them out to buy.

As for the rest of the news...

Cinescape.com, along with a few other sites, have reported that Bryan Singer and X2 writers Dan Harris and Michael Doughtery have signed on to write Marvel's Ultimate X-Men. This is indeed good news for fans of the series.

Cinescape also reported that we will see the original Star Wars Trilogy on DVD by the end of the year, which is great, except that they will be the remastered versions, which just sucked. Here's hoping the include both cuts of each film.

They also report that the Simpson's movie may finally get made, and that Liam Neeson's name is now attached to the new Batman film, though it's not known who he will be playing.

So, it looks like fairly good news all around.
