As an unnamed man wanders through a forest, images of gruesome violence and untamed sexuality flood his psyche. Admitted to a psychiatric hospital, the doctors and nurses are at a loss to explain his identity or his condition. The man seems to fear the dark, and each night stands by the window in his straightjacket as if he were waiting for someone, or something. When a young woman visitor appears to recognize him, he runs away in abject terror.
Sony have announced a January 29th street date for IN BRUGES writer/director Martin McDonagh's follow up film, SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS. The film opened up in semi-wide release this fall and had a modest, if not necessarily succesfull, reception. It's the kind of manic, self-consciously hip and gratuitously bloody film that will likely earn much more of an audience than it would theatrically anyway. For those that did catch it in theaters and happened to enjoy it, Sony are giving it a decent batch of supplements, though a commentary is sorely absent:
Lionsgate have announced a January 8th release date for the second screen adaptation of Judge Dredd: DREDD. The film didn't exactly blow up the box office, but it'd be hard to say that anyone ever expected it to.

Now this is a release that I've been waiting for. Since the credits for the last episode scrolled across my TV upon completing the first season blu-ray set. The set will be released on February 19th and will include all season 2 episodes along with the following features, some exclusive to blu-ray:
Popping The Cherry is an irregular column in which a Geek New Wave writer finally gets around to watching a classic or famous film that, for one reason or another, they have continually missed. Form there, it's not so much a review as it is a reaction and musing on the particular film at hand. For this first entry, I finally get around to watching David Lynch's Lost Highway.
In March of 2013 the Age of Ultron finally begins. We've known for almost two years that this event was coming, but we've never had an official start date. Originally supposed to begin last year, the event had been pushed back to an unspecified date. Well, last week and again today teasers and cover's were revealed.
