WTFriday?! - Firefly Intro ... The Awesome Edition

Source: CrunchGear

There are two kinds of people in this world, those beholden to Joss Whedon's SciFi Western TV series Firefly, and those who would take the time to spit twice on it.

I freak'n love it!

While I am pretty partial to the original intro credits to the show Youtube uploader io9er put it best, "The original credits weren't bad, they just needed a little umph ... here is that umph."

With no further yapp'n on my part enjoy Firefly, circa 1980's:

PS3-D In September

Source: CrunchGear

It is no secret that Sony is making itself out to be the champion in all things 3D. They have some of the first 3D TVs on the market, 3D cameras, 3D video recorders and last but not least the PS3.

Over the coming few months you will start to notice a few PS3 updates for various 3D game demos, but come September the PS3 will have full 3D Blu-ray functionality. Not long after you can watch 3D Blu-rays expect to see other features compatible with their 3D cameras, and if you think you can do better than Shyamalan 3D home movies!

I am going to be honest, again (sigh), I am not an advocate for 3D movies in their current form but if I could make a 3D home movie about a family vacation to the Grand Canyon I might have to switch teams.

Rock & Rule Blu in September

1983's animated rock'n'roll music adventure is getting a Blu-ray release.

Rock & Rule is the post-apocalyptic classic tale of legendary evil rock star kidnapping a beautiful female singer in the hopes of utilizing her pipes to summon an ancient demon (Yeah, I know your mom told you the story before bed every night just like mine did.)But not the whole band is keen on awakening an ancient evil, and they set out on a mission to Nuke York in an attempt rescue the rock damsel in distress!

This all occurs, of course, with a killer soundtrack from such greats as Iggy Pop, Cheap Trick, Lou Reed and others. Essentially if you liked Heavy Metal, this might be right up your alley!

No official word on extras yet, but it would be safe to assume that you would at least get what came with the Rock & Rule 2-Disc Anniversary DVD release a few years back.

The 2-Disc DVD Included:

  • The Making of Rock & Rule
  • Commentary with Director Clive Smith
  • Character Sketch Gallery
  • Restoration Comparisons
  • Special Thanks
  • Alternate Version
  • The Devil and Daniel Mouse: Animated Short
  • How We Made The Devil and Daniel Mouse
  • Trailers and more!

Marmaduke in August

Source: HighDef Disc News

Be warned, Marmaduke is coming on August 24th.

That is all I really have to say about this movie, as I even hesitated to tell you that much. But for any of you who did have to suffer through this critical and financial bomb I present you with a possible cathartic release. Again I am sorry if I offended you at all with this article but hey, it's my job and rain, sleet, great films or schlock I am going to get it done!

No extras have been announced yet, but this will be a 3-Disc combo release consisting of a DVD, Blu-ray and a Digital Copy of Marmaduke.
