GREAT News for Hot Blog Fans!!!

(The following came from a promotion house… a few minor edits are italicized)

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is gearing up to release the Unrated Director’s Cut of Hostile: Part II which (abuses) Lauren German, Bijou Phillips, and Heather Matarazzo onto DVD and Blu-ray. The “shocking(ly hateful)” sequel will be available to own on both formats as of October 23rd. Of course I could go into more detail as to the insane amount of extras this release boasts (like the Cat O’Nine Tails With Lube In The Handle and the How To book on stalking those teen bitches who won’t give you the time of day in history class), but I figure it would be best just to let you hear it from the (genius auteur’s) mouth himself.

OHHH.. and don’t forget to brush up on your Slovakian!

    jeffmcm will only be able to hold this DVD with one hand because the other–
    forget it.
    Don’t blame it on me buddy, DP was the troll this time.

  3. David Poland says:

    Hey man… just trying to help a bro sell his joynt…

  4. lazarus says:

    In all seriousness, it’s sad that the selling point on the DVD cover is “more VIOLENT” and “more BLOODY” than the original. As if liking the first film isn’t enough to convince the thugs to buy it.

  5. jeffmcm says:

    Even I’m tired of beating this horse.

  6. themutilator says:

    Well, Ive got mine on order.
    It’s why I bought a blu-ray.

  7. seenmyverite? says:

    well, now we know what you’re mutilating…

  8. IOIOIOI says:

    Jeff; this horse is not even around the bend. If you build a torture-porn house. Be prepared for PAIN being brought to the torture-porn house. Yep. He’s not going to get that reference. So be it.

  9. jeffmcm says:

    You are correct, guacamole breath.
    Name that reference.

  10. IOIOIOI says:

    Dude; my reference actually represents a movie where Jeremy Piven gets thrown off a roof. Figure that out, chucklehutt.

  11. Wrecktum says:

    I’ve got a corkscrew cock and I love to drill the bitches!
    Made that one up myself.

    “Eli Roth: Bringing David Poland and Nikki Finke closer in actually agreeing about something.”

  13. jeffmcm says:

    I want to add, Eli should thank DP for the free publicity.

  14. I’m impressed by certain people on this blog. I really am. They have an incredible ability to keep repeating the exact same joke over and over again long past it’s used by date. It shows incredible dedication on their part, I must say.

  16. David Poland says:

    Nikki and I agree about many things. Our primary disagreement is about human beings should treat one another and what is honorable and honest vs. what is self-serving bullshit.

    “Even I’m tired of beating this horse”
    I believe that would be the Blu-Ray edition of ZOO
    and Guacamole Breath is from E.T. (At least from the copy I bought in Utah)

  18. David Poland says:

    I don’t recall seeing hcat in here before… but first time and SCORE! Nice.

  19. doug r says:

    If Roth wanted to stay true to his vision, why did he cut it to R? It’s about money, isn’t it?

  20. jeffmcm says:

    Yeah, he’s just like those money-grubbing hacks Quentin Tarantino, Michael Mann, Terry Zwigoff, Jane Campion, Oliver Stone, and Judd Apatow, who have all released unrated cuts on DVD of movies that were R in theaters.

“Ten years ago at Telluride, I said on a panel that theatrical distribution was dying. It seemed obvious to me. I was surprised how many in the audience violently objected: ‘People will always want to go to the movies!’ That’s true, but it’s also true that theatrical cinema as we once knew it has died. Theatrical cinema is now Event Cinema, just as theatrical plays and musical performances are Events. No one just goes to a movie. It’s a planned occasion. Four types of Event Cinema remain.
1. Spectacle (IMAX-style blockbusters)
2. Family (cartoon like features)
3. Horror (teen-driven), and
4. Film Club (formerly arthouse but now anything serious).

There are isolated pockets like black cinema, romcom, girl’s-night-out, seniors, teen gross-outs, but it’s primarily those four. Everything else is TV. Now I have to go back to episode five of ‘Looming Tower.'”

“Because of my relative candor on Twitter regarding why I quit my day job, my DMs have overflowed with similar stories from colleagues around the globe. These peeks behind the curtains of film festivals, venues, distributors and funding bodies weren’t pretty. Certain dismal patterns recurred (and resonated): Boards who don’t engage with or even understand their organization’s artistic mission and are insensitive to the diverse neighborhood in which their organization’s venue is located; incompetent founders and/or presidents who create only obstacles, never solutions; unduly empowered, Trumpian bean counters who chip away at the taste and experiences that make organizations’ cultural offerings special; expensive PR teams that don’t bring to the table a bare-minimum familiarity with the rich subcultural art form they’re half-heartedly peddling as “product”; nonprofit arts organizations for whom art now ranks as a distant-second goal behind profit.”
