Cool World Collector’s Edition on Blu-Ray. How Hot Will it Be?

7 Sep

cool world

On September 13, 2002, Shout! Factory‘s release of Cool World Collector’s Edition on Blu-Ray is certain to raise eyebrows. 

This adult animation won’t be for everyone. Unlike Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), it breaks the mould since not all cartoon movies were considered family friendly. It’s a black comedy from 1992 which predates Monkeybone (2001). And although the latter two were box office bombs during release, both have gained cult status since.

Plus, when David Bowie wrote a song for it, titled Real Cool World (see below), what could go wrong? It’s unfortunate that this music video isn’t included and the reason may be due to not having a high quality source to remaster from.

Fans can pre-order at ShoutFactory.com or Amazon USA.

Crossing the Streams is Easier with Everything Everywhere All At Once Going Digital Today!

7 Jun

Available on Apple, Google Play and Amazon Prime
Home Video Release July 5th, 2022

Infinity may feel finite temporarily, but Michelle Yeoh’s Everything Everywhere All At Once is on VOD! The home release will arrive a month later to really spread the love for this well-made martial arts sci-fi comedy, and our movie review can be found here.

But for who can’t wait, this treat is looking like it’s best viewed on the Apple TV service. There’s a blooper reel that’s as hilarious as the hijinks that went on in the film. We have a well meaning tale about family togetherness that’s combined with multi-verse mayhem. A lot of comparisons have been said already concering a Marvel product, but in terms of which multiverse makes more sense, I’d say this work has an edge.
