Booze News: Upcoming Soused Cinema on DVD

>> Tuesday, February 27, 2007

Start savin’ your shekels. There are some very interesting drunky DVDs due to be released during March and beyond. Here’s a quick look at what you’ll be buyin’ in the upcoming months:

March 13: Casino Royale (2006, DVD & Blu-ray) Daniel Craig is the best and the booziest of the Bonds.

March 20: The W.C. Fields Comedy Collection Volume 2: The Man on the Flying Trapeze / Never Give A Sucker An Even Break / You’re Telling Me! / The Old Fashioned Way / Poppy (1934-1941, DVD) If you only buy one DVD set this year, this better be it, Chester!

March 27: Children of Men (2006, DVD & HD-DVD) Although Clive Owen’s character likes to drink, I wouldn’t call Children of Men a booze movie. Still, it was the best damn film of the past year, so it’s worth a mention.

May 22: Smokey and the Bandit (1977, HD-DVD) As cheaply as this flick was produced, I don’t know how much the high definition upgrade will help.

2007 (no firm date): Under the Volcano (1984, DVD) and Rio Bravo 2-Disc SE (1959, DVD)

When will Smokey IS the Bandit be coming to HiDefDVD?

Are you referring to the theatrical release of SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT 3 or the original version that they filmed with Gleason playing both parts. The original version can't be any worse than S&TB3.

By the way, the HD-DVD release of SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT provides a unique opportunity to see an ultra clear picture of Reynolds pre-facelift and Gleason post-facelift.

Gotta love Craig's "Do I look like I give a damn" line from Royale. Can't wait for that DVD.

I also love the choice of ending line for CASINO ROYALE. The way the writers played with the conventions of the franchise was a lot of fun throughout. This was definitely the BATMAN BEGINS of the Bonds, and on the basis of this one picture, Craig is my favorite 007 actor.

I like to drink. I like to watch movies. I like to watch movies about drinking. I like to write about the movies I’ve watched, but only if I’ve had a drink first.
