Goodbye Justin? Plus New Review Member
Well, I have some bad news to report today. One of our
review members, Justin, seems to have mysteriously
disappeared off the face of the Earth. Justin has been a
member with us from the start, and did submit a nice couple
of reviews at the site's launch. You may have noticed he
hasn't been submitting lately, but he kept guaranteeing me
he'd give me some reviews soon. He also mentioned he was
moving to the next town over where he lives, and that he had
some other plans of his own, but would still keep
contributing to the site.
Well, I did try to e-mail him earlier in the week to see
how things were going with him, but his e-mail account has
been cancelled, and those who know him have no idea what's
happening with him either.
Since Justin gave me no warning or whatever in to what's
been going on with him, and his whole mysterious
disappearence, I have no choice but to remove him from the
site for now. I haven't been able to get into contact with
him and no one has either, and I will be needing someone to
fill his spot, so I feel the best thing to do now is to take
him off the site. If Justin does return, I'll be more than
happy to add him back to the site. So, remember, if you're
still interested in becoming a review member, check out the
section to learn how.
While Justin may be gone, another review comes to join
DVDlaunch! I'd like to give a whole hearty welcome to
James S., you may have noticed his review of the
standard edition of
Man. James has a really interesting history, and be sure
to check it out on the
page. Welcome, James!
As far as release news go, on December 5th marks the
release of the special edition for Nutty Professor II:
The Klumps. I saw it in the theater and downright HATED
it, but no worry for Universal, it still grossed a large
sum. Anyhow, the DVD will include a commentary track from
director Segal, a commentary with producer Brian Grazer,
outtakes, deleted scenes, trailers, the Janet Jackson music
video "Doesn't Really Matter" among other stuff. Retail is
$26.99. Universal gives this the special edition treatment
Sky? Please. Where's the logic in that?
A ton of new movies open today. The comedy Meet The
Parents has been getting some rave reviews, while Warner
didn't even bother to screen Get Carter, the new
Stallone action flick. For the kids there is Digimon: The
Movie, while IMAX fans are sure to enjoy their latest
3-D entry, Cyberworld (it even has a clip from the
"Homer3" Simpsons Treehouse of Horror). Best In Show
also extendes to more theaters today, and Joel Schumacher
has been getting some nice reviews for the war drama
Well, that's it for now. Have a nice weekend everyone,
and an easy fast for those who are following Yom Kippur
(such as myself).
