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 Staff 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 Repo Man. James has a really interesting history, and be sure to check it out on the Staff 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 and not October 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 Tigerland.

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).
