    I always thought this would be a good idea. Even before DVD I wished that there could be VHS movies released with Joe Bob anecdotes throughout the movie, just like on Monstervision. Joe Bob is the king of cult cinema. It would be cool if he did commentaries/interviews for Troma too [​IMG] .

    As commentary, fine, but PLEASE NOT intruding into the movie. The old Elvira VHS tapes had her barging into the proceedings all the time and were an abomination.

    These are definitely just commentary tracks. I've got the first one (I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE: MILLENIUM EDITION) and it is just an option.

    Actually, I liked it when Elvira butted into the films..

    That's cool! Here's hoping there are some cool flicks to go with Joe Bob.

    Joe Bob is hilarious, and this would have me buying chessy movies I undoubtedly wouldn't have gotten without his commentary! [​IMG]

    Actually, if they had one of those pop-up follow the white rabbit deals where you could see either newly produced or classic Joe Bob segments interrupting the film, that would be a pretty cool option, sort of like the commentary track for Disney's Atlantis.

    Regards,

    Has anybody heard any news about Elite's forthcoming release of Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter.

    Slated for release on July 29th, includes a theatrical trailer aside from the commentary, lists for $19.95. No words, as far as I know, about aspect ratios or the like.

    I decided that for ~15 shipped, I could risk a preorder. I'm not too concerned with extras/aspect ratio anyway...just the Joe Bob commentary. I'll post details when it arrives.

    I just got an email from DVD Empire that the release date has changed from July 29th to TBA. I hope this doesn't mean that it's being canceled.

    I don't know if a cancellation is in the wings, but Elite apparently has distributed screeners, judging by this review at Monsters at Play. (The disc, despite the specs floating around elsewhere, is presented in anamorphic widescreen.)
    Amazon, DVD Planet, Best Buy, and I'd imagine a number of other retailers still list the 7/29 relesae date, FWIW.
    Edit: There is also a review at DVD Drive-In

    Amazon, DVD Planet, BestPrices.com, Barnes & Noble.com, and DVD Empire still don't have any copies in stock, and Overstock stopped listing the disc entirely. FWIW, Buy.com lists a new date of 8/19.

    I e-mailed Elite this morning, and they insist the disc is out now. They went on to claim that DVD Planet has copies in stock, despite what the status on their site says.

    I'm assuming sales of this title will be pretty dismal since even a concerted effort seems to be unable to actually turn up a copy.

    Very disappointed about the availability of this disk.

    I had mine preordered, and was very angry when I got an email saying the date had been changed to "TBA."

    I, for one, was really looking forward to this disk.

    I found a copy on the shelf at Borders for $14.99 (in the Cult Classics section) but decided to hold off on buying it until I had a chance to check out a few reviews.
