I really like Bradley Cooper. I wish I goddamn knew why; I should loathe him and call him a douchebag, but goddamn if he doesn't just charm the pants off me. Part of that is undoubtedly just the familiarity that we all have with celebrities; we see them so often that we start to look past whatever surface level bullshit would cause us to dislike them. And, don't get me wrong, if I saw Bradley Cooper in a bar without knowing who he was, I'd be hard pressed not to throw a drink in his face, with or without him hitting on me.
Alright, we're getting into some pretty personal fantasies here. How about we just get on to the DVD release list, shall we?
I confess, as per a podcast discussion with Ryan, that I find Bradley Cooper totally disarming. I'd let him talk French to me in bed, in other words. I look forward to checking this film out, especially after the unexpected thumbs up from Alex.
|2. Take Me Home Tonight|
A worldwide total of seven million dollars? That's got to be a fairly huge "ouch" for Relativity on the balance sheet. I'm sure it'll make all that money back in DVD sales, right? ...right?
Eva Green is a teacher in a British all-girls school, and her students start competing over their infatuation with her? I'd love to think that this is some amazingly trashy pseudo-lesbianic tale, but reading the Wikipedia summary just makes it seem depressing.
The ventriloquist documentary you never knew you wanted! Because you didn't want it ever, ever, ever!
|5. House of the Rising Sun|
I really like Amy Smart, if only because she's incredibly hot, so I'm sad that she's making movies with WWE guys like Bautista now. Not because I hate him or anything, but just because those movies generally wind up pretty bad. That said, this doesn't appear to be a WWE movie, so who knows? Maybe it's the next Citizen Kane, although with a tagline like "They took his badge. He kept the gun," I doubt it.
|6. Mayor Cupcake|
Lea Thompson bakes cupcakes...but then she has to run for mayor! Sounds like wacky hijinks! It's a shocker this is heading straight for DVD!
|7. Peep World|
I'm not going to lie; the trailer for this didn't impress me at all. But don't let that stop you from enjoying this fine, 20% RT meter film.
So, apparently this movie cost $35 million to make and made less than a million at the box office after failing to find an American distributor. God forbid a terrible movie should do poorly! (I assume it's terrible.)
According to the IMDB description, "The movie is about a group of people who represent oil company, while working, they accidentally cause a Wolf to appear and start attacking them. No one can stop the wolf but one of the last native Americans." Yeah. Yeah, man. Yeah.
