RT on DVD: Oliver's W, Spike's St. Anna, and My Name is Bruce!
Plus Thai kickboxing's female answer to Tony Jaa, Giancarlo Esposito's directorial debut, and more.
Despite the lack of any indication that the world particularly needed a Blu-ray release of 1994's Street Fighter, here it arrives in an "Extreme Edition." What's so "extreme" about this High Def release, besides the sight of seeing Jean-Claude Van Damme about to spiral into B-movie obscurity (in high definition)? Nothing much, though we are extremely sad to be reminded that such respectable thespians as Ming-Na, Raul Julia, and heck, Kylie Minogue, cashed in to bring such iconic characters as Chun Li, Bison, and Cammy to life. A plethora of bonus materials are on display here to commemorate the cheesy action flick, which helped to kick off an entire genre (the disappointing video game adaptation) and --- surprise! --- arrives just in time to help promote Capcom's new game, Street Fighter IV.
Until next week, happy renting!
