GREAT News for Hot Blog Fans!!!

(The following came from a promotion house… a few minor edits are italicized)

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is gearing up to release the Unrated Director’s Cut of Hostile: Part II which (abuses) Lauren German, Bijou Phillips, and Heather Matarazzo onto DVD and Blu-ray. The “shocking(ly hateful)” sequel will be available to own on both formats as of October 23rd. Of course I could go into more detail as to the insane amount of extras this release boasts (like the Cat O’Nine Tails With Lube In The Handle and the How To book on stalking those teen bitches who won’t give you the time of day in history class), but I figure it would be best just to let you hear it from the (genius auteur’s) mouth himself.

    jeffmcm will only be able to hold this DVD with one hand because the other–
    forget it.
    Don’t blame it on me buddy, DP was the troll this time.

  3. David Poland says:

    Hey man… just trying to help a bro sell his joynt…

  4. lazarus says:

    In all seriousness, it’s sad that the selling point on the DVD cover is “more VIOLENT” and “more BLOODY” than the original. As if liking the first film isn’t enough to convince the thugs to buy it.

  5. jeffmcm says:

    Even I’m tired of beating this horse.

  6. themutilator says:

    Well, Ive got mine on order.
    It’s why I bought a blu-ray.

  7. seenmyverite? says:

    well, now we know what you’re mutilating…

  8. IOIOIOI says:

    Jeff; this horse is not even around the bend. If you build a torture-porn house. Be prepared for PAIN being brought to the torture-porn house. Yep. He’s not going to get that reference. So be it.

  9. jeffmcm says:

    You are correct, guacamole breath.
    Name that reference.

  10. IOIOIOI says:

    Dude; my reference actually represents a movie where Jeremy Piven gets thrown off a roof. Figure that out, chucklehutt.

  11. Wrecktum says:

    I’ve got a corkscrew cock and I love to drill the bitches!
    Made that one up myself.

    “Eli Roth: Bringing David Poland and Nikki Finke closer in actually agreeing about something.”

  13. jeffmcm says:

    I want to add, Eli should thank DP for the free publicity.

  14. I’m impressed by certain people on this blog. I really am. They have an incredible ability to keep repeating the exact same joke over and over again long past it’s used by date. It shows incredible dedication on their part, I must say.

  16. David Poland says:

    Nikki and I agree about many things. Our primary disagreement is about human beings should treat one another and what is honorable and honest vs. what is self-serving bullshit.

  17. hcat says:

    “Even I’m tired of beating this horse”
    I believe that would be the Blu-Ray edition of ZOO
    and Guacamole Breath is from E.T. (At least from the copy I bought in Utah)

  18. David Poland says:

    I don’t recall seeing hcat in here before… but first time and SCORE! Nice.

  19. doug r says:

    If Roth wanted to stay true to his vision, why did he cut it to R? It’s about money, isn’t it?

  20. jeffmcm says:

    Yeah, he’s just like those money-grubbing hacks Quentin Tarantino, Michael Mann, Terry Zwigoff, Jane Campion, Oliver Stone, and Judd Apatow, who have all released unrated cuts on DVD of movies that were R in theaters.

It shows how out of it I was in trying to be in it, acknowledging that I was out of it to myself, and then thinking, “Okay, how do I stop being out of it? Well, I get some legitimate illogical narrative ideas” — some novel, you know?

So I decided on three writers that I might be able to option their material and get some producer, or myself as producer, and then get some writer to do a screenplay on it, and maybe make a movie.

And so the three projects were “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep,” “Naked Lunch” and a collection of Bukowski. Which, in 1975, forget it — I mean, that was nuts. Hollywood would not touch any of that, but I was looking for something commercial, and I thought that all of these things were coming.

There would be no Blade Runner if there was no Ray Bradbury. I couldn’t find Philip K. Dick. His agent didn’t even know where he was. And so I gave up.

I was walking down the street and I ran into Bradbury — he directed a play that I was going to do as an actor, so we know each other, but he yelled “hi” — and I’d forgot who he was.

So at my girlfriend Barbara Hershey’s urging — I was with her at that moment — she said, “Talk to him! That guy really wants to talk to you,” and I said “No, fuck him,” and keep walking.

But then I did, and then I realized who it was, and I thought, “Wait, he’s in that realm, maybe he knows Philip K. Dick.” I said, “You know a guy named—” “Yeah, sure — you want his phone number?”

My friend paid my rent for a year while I wrote, because it turned out we couldn’t get a writer. My friends kept on me about, well, if you can’t get a writer, then you write.”

“That was the most disappointing thing to me in how this thing was played. Is that I’m on the phone with you now, after all that’s been said, and the fundamental distinction between what James is dealing with in these other cases is not actually brought to the fore. The fundamental difference is that James Franco didn’t seek to use his position to have sex with anyone. There’s not a case of that. He wasn’t using his position or status to try to solicit a sexual favor from anyone. If he had — if that were what the accusation involved — the show would not have gone on. We would have folded up shop and we would have not completed the show. Because then it would have been the same as Harvey Weinstein, or Les Moonves, or any of these cases that are fundamental to this new paradigm. Did you not notice that? Why did you not notice that? Is that not something notable to say, journalistically? Because nobody could find the voice to say it. I’m not just being rhetorical. Why is it that you and the other critics, none of you could find the voice to say, “You know, it’s not this, it’s that”? Because — let me go on and speak further to this. If you go back to the L.A. Times piece, that’s what it lacked. That’s what they were not able to deliver. The one example in the five that involved an issue of a sexual act was between James and a woman he was dating, who he was not working with. There was no professional dynamic in any capacity.
