Planet Terror will be extended, but not by much I don't think. I also was reading that neither the Death Proof nor Planet Terror DVDs will have the in-movie trailers.

I guess it'll be saved for the SuperMegaDeLuxe Grindhouse DVD that'll inevitably come out next year.

Of course. It's a Ridley Scott film. His work can be hit-or-miss but the man's a living God.

There's no way I'm missing that.

Ridley Scott is hit or miss, but when he hits it's glorious.

Legend is probably his most underrated film.

Oh yes, Mr. GLADIATOR

and the only other one off the top of my head that I've seen was In My Shoes, which seems like an odd movie for him to direct...

Alien and Blade Runner alone make me want to worship his feet.

I don't think he directed that movie you said though.

Ridley Scott is only hit-or-miss because he's got an unbelieveable ambition and artistic will, that when he gets set on a project, whether it's a great idea or not, he follows his instinct does it justice. Sometimes we get stuff like G.I. Jane or A Good Year, other times we get flawed works of art like Kingdom of Heaven or Matchstick Men, and then more often than not with Scott, the stars align and we get genre-defining works like Alien, Blade Runner and Gladiator.

There's a reason the man's my 2nd or 3rd favorite director. Just look at what he's got on his plate. Body of Lies, Nottingham, and Blood Meridian. I expect all of them, American Gangster as well, to be at least damn fine works of a master director.

Scott only produced In Her Shoes.

Is the Director's Cut of Kingdom of Heaven worth checking out?

Thelma & Louise is completely overrated though, maybe it's because I didn't like the super-feminism vibe or Susan Sarandon or Geena Davis, but I digress.

What were Matchstick Men's flaws?

I love that film.

Yes, I just noticed that. My bad. Again

I did see Hannibal and Thelma & Louise. I know I saw Blade Runner & Alien when they first came out. I was never a fan of the Alien series - not my cup o' tea

I didn't see it. Not really a fan of Nicholas Cage. Though I do enjoy Honeymoon In Vegas

Actually, I was flipping channels last night after watching The Departed, and came across 8MM at about 3:45am. I only saw a little bit of it, as I was exhausted. I have no idea what happened after Phoenix dies and the other guy he pays money to to get a film made (I think). Is it worth watching the whole thing?

I don't exactly remember.

It's been over a year since I've seen it, but I do remember liking it quite a bit. Maybe it's time for a revisit. I do remember having some problem with the daughter character, though I don't remember what it was.

8MM was a bizarre film. Haven't seen that one in a while either though. Probably worth watching one night, if you don't have anything else to do. It's extremely disturbing though, if you're put off by that sort of thing.

Me neither, he's at his best when he's playing odd, neurotic characters like in Matchstick Men.

Then there's Ghost Rider... which redefined film as we know it.
