    Looking very forward to this disc! Seriously, Crispin Glover should be nominated for his amazing off-beat performance in "Willard".

    Crispin Glover gave off-beat performance? No way! [​IMG]

    Seriously, I missed this in the theaters, it didn't run very long. It looked cool, and I'm a fan of Glover. I'll audition it on Netflix.

    Yeah, that's an extremely cool pic. Unfortunately, this one was out of theatres too quickly for me to see it. I'm definitely intrigued with any movie starring Crispin. The guy is definitely from another planet; ya gotta love him. Plus the movie got generally favorable reviews (66% Tomatometer rating). I'm there.

    If I recall correctly, that's the poster art. Looks like someone could learn from New Line (eehhmm, WB). [​IMG]

    Can't wait to see this one.

    And for you Crispin fans, check out Bartleby, which I believe was just released on DVD.

    Whew! I was going to pitch a fit if they didn't include the music video for "Ben". I haven't even seen the film, but I caught the vid on the official website. It definately got me interested in the film; alas, there were too many movies out at the time and not enough money.

    I caught this film in it's brief theatrical run and was very impressed. Definitely didn't get the respect it deserved. I'm definitely picking this up. I'm also glad to see New Line finally release another Platinum Series title as I don't really get into the whole Infinifilm aspect. The only bad thing about this release is the mere inclusion of a Pan & Scan version. Otherwise a great DVD in the making.
