RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: The Rum Diary and Take Shelter

Summary

This week on home video, we've got an interesting mish-mash of movies to mention. We'll kick things off with the new "Johnny Depp as Hunter S. Thompson proxy" movie and the psychological thriller featuring a powerhouse Michael Shannon performance. Then, we've got Brazil's top moneymaker (ever!), the second installment (and "full sequence") of a horror movie that'll leave a bad taste in your mouth, and an acclaimed documentary about the inner city. Rounding things out are a low-budget indie comedy and an American war movie classic. Click through for the full list! Back to Article

although the rum diary didnt get the best reviews, i still kind of want to see it. johnny depp is usually decent and it looks like there might be some funny parts. might be worth a rent.

Take Shelter is one incredible film.

However, I must profess myself diappointed with Elite Squad 2. Much sound and fury and very little nuance.

So I'm a sucker, right? I flip in the "Tree" DVD and in the upper left corner of 34:57 is an asteroid floating over Saturn. Since this scene is directly prior to the dinosaur-killing asteroid impact scene, it must have some connection to the doomsday aspect of "Take Shelter"?

I'm also a dork. "bunties" - A word used to to describe your bed
Bunty - An attractive white girl
A disgusting, smelly, obese, unhygenic or generally revolting person.
A person who is rude, stubborn, selfish and hypocritical.
Verb. the act of stealing or taking.
A term for well respected individuals who are considered to be very intellegent
To excell at excellence
A bunty is the proper ghetto way of describing a "boost" or a hand, in helping an individual to climb an otherwise insurmountable object, by way of directing both hands towards each other and interlocking/overlapping the fingers so as to create an artificial "step" for the climber's foot.
A very brutal form of murder or killing.
Largely used by spoilt children and slow adults, a bunty is a word for a bidet. It is thought to have origionated somewhere in europe or india, and is in common use on the streets of major cities by a childish looking man, dashing down the street knocking on doors with an incriminating stain on his posterior.
A general internet badass known to worm his way out of slippery situations and make a mockery of the english language.
Most commonly referred to as Poot, a short, round, rather rotund person of the tiny stature. The state of being often results in being punted.
A small obese burgandy monster with buldgy white eyes,a nose like a loose asshole,a big smily mouth,tiny front legs and a tail.
Used as a disparaging term for a mentally retarded person.
