Sometimes, searching for “bad” movies turns up a few surprises. Case in point, I recently came across this press release for “One Direction: This Is Us”, coming to 3D Blu, Blu-Ray and DVD on Dec. 17. I haven’t heard much of their music, but I know they’re HUGE with teenage girls. Naturally, my first thought is that these guys are the Superman 2 to Justin Bieber: where he is just one, they are five – bursting out of their British phantom zone to reek havoc on US pop culture. Then I saw this documentary was directed by one of my favorites… Morgan “Super Size Me” Spurlock. Mind = blown. Did he sell out or is this thing actually pretty good? Feel free to comment if you’ve seen it, as I’m actually kind of interested in hearing some reactions. Click “READ MORE” below for specs on the various editions being released. Read more

Ah, THE SHINING, how I love thee! Let me count the ways! 1.) It has one of the most unhinged and scenery chewing performances of Jack Nicholson’s career. 2.) The ominous music by Wendy Carlos. 3.) The roving steadycam never letting you relax to ride your Big Wheel, knowing that those creepy twins could be around any corner. 4.) Also knowing that Scatman Crothers has kick-ass nudie paintings of chicks with afros in his kick-ass bachlor pad. 5.) The way it gets you to relate to the anguish of cabin fever. 666.) That overabundance of TANG in the Overlook’s pantry being proof that director Stanley Kubrick helped the government fake the moon landing.
Wait a sec…what?
