In one of the most original marketing ideas I've ever seen, the upcoming indie flick Sexy Beast has allowed IFILM to stream the first 8 minutes of the film. I guess you could call it the lazy way to do a movie trailer. Either way, the movie looks interesting to say the least, as its title contains the word "sexy" and thus far only shows us a fat guy in a yellow Speedo sitting in a pool chair.
Working at a video store can have it's definite ups and downs, ranging from retarded customers who think the wide-screen format is a defect on their TV, to the people who, well, aren't retarded. Yet, if one thing were to stand out the most out of every aspect of my job, it'd have to be the constant bitching that is:"When's The Godfather coming to DVD???!"
Well, I can finally find relief as Paramount Home Entertainment recently announced The Godfather 5 disc DVD super-set! Each movie will have it's own disc (Part II will have two discs) and a 5th disc will be dedicated entirely to 3 and a half hours of extras, interviews and "stuff ". After its release on 10/9/01 (following The Mummy Returns DVD, being released one week earlier) all I'll have to deal with is the incessant demand for Battlefield Earth: Criterion Edition.
