In this film that epitomizes the American love for baseball, Ray Kinsella, a struggling Iowa farmer (Kevin Costner), obeys a mysterious voice in his cornfield that tells him to replace part of his crop with a baseball diamond, resulting in the magical meeting of baseball heroes from the past, including Shoeless Joe Jackson, and the seven other Chicago White Sox players who were suspended for purposefully losing the 1919 World Series. Even after building the diamond, Ray continues to hear voices, and seeks the help of a hermit-like author in sorting out the mystery, which allows the confrontation of ghosts of other sorts.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00020HAY2/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (Columbia/Tri-Star) [/url]
Resigned to the dusty shelves of video stores, 1950s B-grade science-fiction films get a nod in this part-parody, part-tribute, all-laughs comedy. Lost aliens, a jailbird mutant, competitive scientists, an errant meteor, and a hibernating power-hungry skeleton are woven together in a silly, ludicrous plot. The film has only one location--a remote mountain area--nailing the 1950s aesthetic of the uninhabited wilderness, and also recognizing the cheap production costs for which these locations were picked. Shot in black-and-white video, the film recalls the look of many early sci-fi pictures, even going so far as to include the errant sunlight and stark shadows during night scenes, an obvious reference to the rudimentary lighting used back then. Campy, humorous dialogue between the characters demonstrates a time when men were scientists--strong, stolid, and logical--while women remained dainty and spent their time in the kitchen. The camera often lingers on the characters, giving them time to overdramatize and really punctuate their ridiculousness. Perhaps the most obvious reference to B-movies is in the costuming. The humans wear typical 1950s garb, the aliens are festooned in garish silver-glitter suits, and the mutant is hilariously fashioned from throw rugs and Halloween detritus. Even the strings which animate the skeleton are on display in this hilarious send-up of an obsolete era of film, the golden age of B-list sci-fi.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001US5T2/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Tupac Resurrection (Paramount) [/url]
Producer-director Lauren Lazin conceived of this inventive documentary as a way to celebrate the life of one of hip-hop's most iconic figures, Tupac Shakur. Rather than rely on friends, family members, and associates to tell the slain rapper's life story, Lazin instead lets Shakur himself do the talking, as if he's speaking from the grave. The result is an original and insightful autobiography that paints a vibrant picture of a passionate individual who continues to have a profound impact on people all over the world. Raised by his mother, a high-profile Black Panther, Tupac Shakur was a deeply sensitive child who found comfort in the arts. As he grew older he became a successful rapper and actor, giving voice to a generation of disenfranchised youths. Run-ins with the law, stints in jail, and feuds with east coast rappers Puff Daddy and Biggie Smalls all precede the night when he got shot five times in New York City, and his eventual murder in Las Vegas at the premature age of 25. Shakur always remained passionate and supremely distinct, living his life to the fullest and speaking his mind with unflinching clarity and honesty. This powerful tribute captures him in all his contradictory glory, and is a must-see for anyone interested in popular culture and American history and culture.
DVD Features112 mins, R, Anamorphic Widescreen, Dolby Digital 5.1 & Dolby Surround (English), Commentary by Tupac’s Mom Afeni Shakur, Director Lauren Lazin and Surprise Guests, 4 Deleted Scenes, Exclusive Interviews, Malcolm X Dinner Speech, Deposition, About the Resurrection Soundtrack, Music Videos, Remembering Tupac, Mutulu Shakur Interview, Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts, Trailers, Bootleg This!, English Subtitles

NEW Special Editions




[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001XAOL6/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Ali: Director's Expanded Edition (Columbia/Tri-Star) [/url]

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00020HAB0/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Bad Santa (Unrated Version - "Badder Santa") (Buena Vista) [/url]
Billy Bob Thornton is terrific as Willie T. Stokes, a lowlife department-store Santa in Terry Zwigoff's outrageous comedic follow-up to his offbeat hit GHOST WORLD. Every year, Stokes takes a job as Santa in a different place in order to rob the store he's working in. The diminutive Tony Cox plays his horny sidekick, Marcus, the real mastermind, who is even more foulmouthed than Stokes. Brett Kelly is Thurman Merman, an eight-year-old who desperately needs to believe in the real Santa Claus--and just might have a good enough heart to change Stokes's evil ways. Or maybe not. And Lauren Graham plays Sue, a young sexpot who wants to get a different kind of gift from Santa. Providing excellent comic relief in this black comedy is John Ritter, in his last film role, as the mousy mall manager, and Bernie Mac as Gin, the mall security guard who suspects something is not right. Be warned--BAD SANTA is not a family holiday movie. It is lewd, crude, and very funny, but it is most definitely not for children. Joel and Ethan Coen, the brothers behind such quirky hits as RAISING ARIZONA and BARTON FINK, are the executive producers who came up with the idea in the first place, influenced by the likes of THE BAD NEWS BEARS and SOUTH PARK.

In this dark French thriller directed by Olivier Assayas, Connie Nielsen (GLADIATOR) stars as Diane, an ambitious corporate climber. As Diane ruthlessly cuts down her rivals, she finds herself negotiating an important deal with the imposing Hervé Le Millinec (Charles Berling) and the producers of hi-tech, pornographic Japanese anime films. Eventually, her subversive business techniques lead her into the decadent and mysterious world of "The Hellfire Club," an interactive torture and S&M website. Can Diane maintain control of her increasingly shadowy and confusing situation? And can she continue to eliminate her opponents before they eliminate her? With DEMONLOVER, Assayas has created a film that is immersed in the seedy and corporate elements of early 21st century pop culture--a world where big business, Japanese animation, and sex violently collide. Nielsen, who speaks fluent French, is compelling as Diane, an ice queen who refuses to allow any emotion to stand in her way. The cast is rounded out by the formidable Berling, Chloë Sevigny in a duplicitous role, and Gina Gershon as a trashy American counterpart to Diane. Alternatively atmospheric and jarring, Assayas' film is enhanced by Sonic Youth's cool, evocative score. DVD FeaturesComing Soon

A spacecraft carrying an assortment of passengers including Riddick (Vin Diesel), a dangerous, shackled murderer between prisons, is forced to make a crash landing on a barren, triple-sunned planet after the craft suffers severe damage during a meteor shower. The ship is ripped into pieces, killing several crew members and leaving meek officer Fry (Radha Mitchell) in charge of the survivors. After two unfortunate deaths, the survivors discover that the only visible life form on the planet is a species of light-fearing, carnivorous, occasionally cannibalistic aliens dwelling in caverns beneath the desert surface. Using a model of the planet and its suns in an abandoned research station, Fry deduces that she and her fellow travellers have unfortunately descended on the planet on the day of its first total eclipse in 22 years, giving them mere hours before they are bathed in total darkness. Only then is it safe for the hungry subterranean creatures to emerge, seeking to feed on the remaining survivors. However, the dangerous Riddick, through black market injections received in lock-up, is able to see in darkness- causing the surviving crew members to reluctantly remain dependent on the potentially harmful criminal. As the survivors are killed one by one by the hungry creatures, they realize that Riddick may be their only hope.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00020W03S/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Bloody Territories (Home Vision) [/url]
BLOODY TERRITORIES is another action-packed, blood-soaked tale from cult director Yasuharu Hasebe. Set in the murky underworld of late-1960s Tokyo, the film begins as the police force an influential yakuza into breaking up. One group refuses to be deterred, however, and embarks on a dangerous mission to take full control of Tokyo's illegal operations. Stylish and engaging, this early Hasebe film contains all the elements that have made him one of world cinema's most celebrated cult figures.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001FVDJQ/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Coogan's Bluff (Universal) [/url]
This fish-out-of-water film was the beginning of a long association between Don Siegel and Clint Eastwood, who stars as the eponymous deputy sheriff from Arizona. The cowboy-cop is sent to New York City to extradite escaped murderer James Ringerman (Don Stroud), only to be told by police lieutenant McElroy (Lee J. Cobb) that the killer is recovering from an acid trip at Bellevue Hospital and can be released only with his doctors' approval. After some low-key flirtation with probation officer Julie Roth (Susan Clark), Coogan decides to take the bull by the horns and tricks Ringerman's Bellevue attendants into releasing him. However, on the way to the airport, the Arizona-bound cop is waylaid by Ringerman's amusingly wacked-out girlfriend, Linny (Tisha Sterling), and beaten senseless by a goon, allowing his prisoner to escape. Later, while in Julie's apartment, he surreptitiously extracts Linny's file to get her address and tracks her to an Electric Circus-like club whose habitués he regards with utter disdain, and he persuades the ditsy woman to take him back to her apartment. An amusing action film, COOGAN'S BLUFF makes much of the irony of the laconic Old West, with Eastwood being equally put off by both the bureaucratically hamstrung cops and the acid-fueled hippies. Cobb and Clark are good in supporting roles.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001NBLYK/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (Warner Bros.) [/url]
GREYSTOKE is a spellbinding screen version of Edgar Rice Burroughs's 1914 classic tale. Tarzan (Christopher Lambert), the seventh Earl of Greystoke, is raised by a family of apes after he is lost as a child in the jungles of Africa. Captain Phillipe D'Arnot (Ian Holm), a Belgian explorer, discovers the adult Tarzan, now lord of the apes, and reintroduces him to the English language and to the British aristocracy. Tarzan becomes John Clayton and is taken to meet his elderly grandfather, the sixth Earl of Greystoke (Ralph Richardson), and his beautiful American ward, Jane Porter (Andie MacDowell). Living in a grand estate instead of in the trees of the African jungle proves daunting for the struggling student of British formality, but he is protected by his loving and eccentric grandfather. Jane continues to teach him about life in British society and before long has captivated John, who must learn how to deal with the strong emotions of human love. John and Jane begin their courtship despite the disapproval of British high society and are eventually engaged to be married. In the wake of family tragedy, John is forced to face his responsibility to the Greystoke family, but he is unable to reconcile his mounting distaste for modern civilization. Ultimately, he finds himself torn between his animal and human families and is forced to make a profound decision about his future. Director Hugh Hudson's film features astounding special effects makeup (courtesy of Rick Baker) and beautiful photography of the remote jungles of Cameroon and the British countryside.

Director Paul Mazursky's dark comedy, adapted from the play by actor Chazz Palminteri, stars Cher as Margaret, a rich and dissatisfied Westchester wife who is so neglected by her philandering and unfaithful husband, Jack (Ryan O'Neal), that she's considering suicide on the night of their 20th wedding anniversary. Things change, however, when she encounters Tony (Palminteri), a brooding, neurotic hit man hired by Jack to kill her while he's away with his office fling (Amber Smith). Tony barges into their expansive mansion and attacks Margaret, tying her up and informing her of the job he's been hired to do. But Tony has been instructed to wait for Jack's signal--the phone will ring twice--and while they wait the pair becomes embroiled in a witty and clever conversation covering a wide range of topics and revealing each other's hidden insecurities and faults. In the process, Tony and Margaret become strangely attracted to each other, drastically altering the outcome of Jack's devious plan. Almost all the action takes place within the walls of Margaret and Jack's home, recalling the film's theatrical origins and intensifying the mood and heightened tension between the killer and his target. Mazursky himself appears as Tony's therapist in this delightful combination of mystery, thriller, and romantic comedy.

The script of FANCY PANTS, based on the popular novel by Harry Leon Wilson, provides stars Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, and director George Marshall with the fantastically slapstick and silly material with which all three excel. Hope plays struggling actor Arthur Tyler, who is hired by a penniless British gentleman to act as his butler in order to impress nouveau riche Americans Agatha Floud (Lucille Ball) and her mother, Mrs. Floud. Hope's failures at maintaining even the smallest retinue of décor forces the British gent to let him go, but the Flouds are so enamored with Tyler that they hire him to work as their own butler in New Mexico. When Tyler arrives, he is confused as a visiting Earl, and is forced to maintain this charade when President Theodore Roosevelt comes to town. With New Mexico hoping the president's visit will help them achieve statehood, the political status of thousands rests firmly on Tyler's bumbling inability to be either British or royal. Meanwhile, Tyler and Aggie Floud are falling for each other, providing several fabulous scenes in which the two comic geniuses work their magic on each other.

Obsessively in love with her, Charles spends his life savings on an advertising campaign that puts her face atop every cab in San Francisco. Surprisingly, Charles's efforts pay off, and Laura receives attention from a popular record company.

This winning, amiable film stars Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson as longtime friends and stars of the Nashville music scene. When producer-songwriter Doc (Nelson) finds himself trapped in an exclusive contract with shifty exec Rodeo Rocky (Richard C. Sarafian), he comes up with a clever plan to break free, recruiting old pal Blackie Buck (Kristofferson) and an insecure, alcoholic torch singer named Gilda (Leslie Ann Warren) to help him. Directed by Alan Rudolph, this is a real charmer of a film, featuring the perfectly cast team of Nelson and Kristofferson. The two share a great rapport and together wrote most of the film's songs, beauties all. Add Rip Torn as Gilda's unscrupulous manager and the film is a veritable Mount Rushmore of great craggy American faces. As a celebration of the joy, sorrow, and craft of songwriting, this warmhearted, funny film is a dusty gem that still sparkles.

Utilizing time-lapse photography, Else documents the stage crew's efforts to bring the opera's mythical world of Rhinemaidens and Valkyries to life while spending their backstage time playing poker, watching baseball, knitting sweaters, and balancing checkbooks. And as they move half-ton scenery through darkened intermissions or gingerly operate a huge mechanical dragon, their behind-the-scenes struggles uncannily echo the epic dramas playing out onstage--offering an apt meditation on the intersection of art and working life.

THE WILD PARTY is based on the 1926 narrative poem by Joseph Moncure March about a Greenwich Village party-turned-disaster. Director James Ivory sets the film in Hollywood at the mansion of silent-screen legend Jolly Grimm (James Coco). Grimm and his mistress, Queenie (Raquel Welch), are hoping that a big party given at their home to celebrate the finish of Grimm’s film will be the catalyst that revives his career. But Grimm’s alcoholism, the advent of talkies, and his failure to get a studio to distribute the film turn the party into something less than celebratory. Queenie entertains the affections of a new Hollywood heartthrob, Dale Sword (Perry King), while Grimm cavorts with a Mary Pickford-type ingenue. It has been suggested that the poem and movie are founded on events similar to the 1921 Fatty Arbuckle scandal.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001LJCAW/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Tycoon: A New Russian (New Yorker) [/url]
Plato Mavoski (Vladimir Mashkov) is the Russian government's worst nightmare. While still a brilliant young academic, he encourages four of his friends to set aside their studies and join him in a variety of business schemes beginning in the late 1980s. Mavoski's semi-legal enterprises make him not only the richest man in Russia, but quite possibly the country's most powerful man as well, not to mention a target for Russian secret service officers and other numerous enemies. Fortunes are amassed, corruption is rampant, and political careers are made and lost during Mavoski's rise to wealth and power, which is depicted via flashbacks of the past 15 years as Mavoski is investigated by an inspector, Chmakov (Andrei Krasko). Mashkov is riveting as Mavoski, an idealist who is consumed by greed and power, ultimately left questioning if there is anyone he can trust. Co-written and directed by Pavel Lounguine (THE WEDDING, THE LIFE IN RED), TYCOON was adapted from the novel THE BIG SLICE by Yuli Dubov, which was reportedly based on the life of Russian oligarch and expatriate Boris Berezovsky.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001ZIYDO/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] A Woman is a Woman (Criterion) [/url]
With A WOMAN IS A WOMAN, French director Jean-Luc Godard pays tribute to American musicals in much the same way that his debut feature, the critical and commercial smash hit BREATHLESS, did to American gangster films. The story follows the beautiful Angela (Anna Karina), a strip-tease artist who wants nothing more than to have a baby. Her live-in boyfriend, Emile (Jean-Claude Brialy), doesn't want to refuse and risk sparking major friction between the two. However, fed up with her constant pleading, Emile finally suggests that she shack up with his best friend, Alfred (Jean-Paul Belmondo), and much to Emile’s dismay, she eventually takes his advice. Godard's second feature employs jump cuts and jarring sound mixing--most notably during Karina's strip-tease performances. A WOMAN IS A WOMAN is Godard at his most affectionate and good-natured. He also makes several cinematic in-jokes, including one in which Belmondo's character mentions that he wants to hurry home to watch BREATHLESS, the film that turned Belmondo into a megastar just one year before. Featuring a magnetically cute performance from Karina, who soon after the film became Godard's wife, this loving romantic comedy is a dazzler.

German director Gabriel Baur (QUEEN OF BED) explores the world of drag kings, inter-sexed persons, and transgendered women in her documentary, VENUS BOYZ. Through in-depth interviews and clips of performances, the film focuses on biological women who push the boundaries of gender norms. Featuring drag kings Mo B. Dick, DRED Gerestant, Storme Webber, Diane Torr, Del la Grace Volcano, and Bridge Markland, this film is a fascinating look at a world that the mainstream rarely recognizes. Some of these women perform as men for the sense of empowerment they experience; other drag kings are embracing a natural affinity toward the masculine. Del la Grace Volcano and the "New Men" take the process a step further by experimenting with testosterone in order to increase their masculine aspects. Overall, the transformations these women undergo are astonishing, whether for purely artistic reasons or for more deeply rooted emotional ones. Baur captures the passion that the performers bring to the stage and never judges their motives or choices. Instead, she presents a world that many people may have never considered, and makes it accessible to the masses.

Gao Wai-Tung (Winston Chao) lives the good life: He runs a successful real-estate business in New York and has a wonderful relationship with his lover, Simon (Mitchell Lichtenstein). The only problem is that his elderly parents in Taiwan don't know he's gay--and they're pushing him to get married and present them with a grandchild. So, with Simon's approval, Wai-Tung strikes a bargain with Wei-Wei (May Chin), a charming young Chinese woman who is one of his tenants. If she'll marry him, he'll help her get a green card so she can stay in the United States. The charade culiminates in an elaborate Chinese banquet that no one will soon forget. The second in director Ang Lee's Father Knows Best trilogy (completed by PUSHING HANDS and EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN), THE WEDDING BANQUET established Lee as a superior observer of intimate and domestic life. Cultural miscommunication, the obligations of tradition, and the difficulty of coming out as gay are all depicted with both hilarity and heartbreaking reality.

This is due to the fact that Epstein and Friedman are openly gay. However, as the pair travels throughout the country, they begin to realize that perhaps Americans aren't as close-minded and violent as the media portrays them. Employing a highly subjective perspective, Epstein and Friedman's film becomes a truly personal and affecting commentary on the citizens of America.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00020HAV0/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Cocoon (Fox) [/url]
A group of senior citizens residing in a rest home find their lives turned upside down after they are offered the gift of eternal youth by benevolent aliens in Ron Howard’s wonderful tribute to the human spirit. Brian Dennehy is Walter, an alien who returns to earth to rescue 20 of his friends now hibernating in cocoons off the coast of Florida. With the help of a charter boat captain (Steve Guttenberg), the cocoons are stored in a deserted swimming pool. When three men from a nearby retirement village (the charming Don Ameche, Wilford Brimley, and Hume Cronyn) sneak into the pool for a swim, they discover what seem to be oversized oystershells in the water. Suddenly they feel physically and spiritually rejuvenated, believing they've found the long elusive Fountain of Youth. The men's frisky behavior causes something of a controversy in the retirement village as residents are forced to choose between a second youth or accepting the more natural aging process. The ensemble cast of experienced actors, including Ameche, Brimley, and Cronyn as well as Cronyn's real-life wife, Jessica Tandy; Maureen Stapleton; Gwen Verdon; and the skeptical Jack Gilford all bring a dignity to the film’s youthful, spirited theme. COCOON, one of the best films of the 1980s, is a heartwarming story that should be treasured for generations.
DVD Features117 mins, PG-13, Anamorphic Widescreen (1:85) & Fullscreen, Dolby Digital 4.1 (English) & Dolby Surround (Spanish/French), Commentary by Director Ron Howard, 5 Featurettes, Trailers, TV Spots and More, Subtitles (English/Spanish)

Don Ameche is back as Art Selwyn, with his friends Ben Luckett (Wilford Brimley) and Joe Finley (Hume Cronyn) and their wives, Bess (Gwen Verdon), Mary (Maureen Stapleton), and Alma (Jessica Tandy). They rediscover the value of human emotion and the fragility of their own lives as they visit with their old friends and remember what it's like to live on earth. As the group of friends reconsider what life would be like if they returned permanently, they shop, party, and make some miraculous discoveries about the future of their relationships. Before they decide whether to stay on Earth or return to space, they must help their alien escort Kitty (Tahnee Welch) rescue an alien cocoon from the hands of the government, with the help of her old friend Jack Bonner (Steve Guttenberg). Once again the elderly friends must debate whether to stay or to go and consider whether it is better to die surrounded by the people one loves or live forever, separated from family and friends. This charming sequel features delightful ensemble acting from its fine cast of stars, including Elaine Stritch and Jack Gilford in dynamite supporting roles.

The Joe Schmo Show spoofs the reality-TV phenomenon by placing an average guy--Matt Kennedy Gould, the Joe Schmo of the series' title--in a fake reality game show where he and eight other contestants compete for a $100,000 prize while living together in a mansion. The twist: Matt's housemates are all actors, and he is the only one who believes the show to be real. As the actors do their best to psyche Matt out with reality-show stereotypes--from the gay guy to the ex-Marine to the uptight virgin--the unsuspecting protagonist earnestly builds alliances, competes in challenges, and vies for immunity, with some unexpectedly honest and touching results. This 3-volume set includes all 8 episodes in their uncensored and unblurred versions.
DVD Features3 Discs, 486 mins, Not Rated, Dolby Digital Stereo (English), Uncensored Deleted Scenes, Commentary on the Shocking Season Finale, The Making of “The Meal” (The Gross Food Stunt), Extended Cast Interviews, The Extended and Unblurred “Chocolate Sauce On Models” Sequence

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001XAMLS/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] The Land of the Lost (The Complete Series) (Rhino) [/url]
A staple of Saturday morning television in the 1970s, LAND OF THE LOST has subsequently achieved cult status, largely due to a strong word-of-mouth campaign. The puppetering effects of creators Sid & Marty Krofft were considered fairly revolutionary at the time, and although special effect techniques have vastly improved since then, the strength of the storylines combined with a highly endearing quality means the shows still hold up well. This release presents the entire first season of the cult classic.
