More Fernando Arrabal from Cult Epics: DVD Update 24 October

While I'm not a huge fan of Fernando Arrabal, I'll likely check out Cult Epics' Arrabal Collection, Volume 2, which includes some lesser-known works from the director, including Car Cemetery with Juliet Berto and The Emperor of Peru with (um) Mickey Rooney. I normally wouldn't list something like the new Nia Vardalos film, but I guess since I've listed everything else IFC has been releasing, it's only fair. I believe First Look will be unloading Herzog's Bad Lieutenant in theatres sometime late November, with its DVD and Blu-ray release in February 2010. All for now.

Your Decade List is great! Is 2008 empty on purpose though? :)

Thanks! I had originally planned that every month would be dedicated to a year, but I decided the other day that I should just post entries whenever I get around to them from now on. So 2008 won't be empty for long!

Poultrygeist on blu-ray! Be still, heart.

By Poultrygeist, you meant Fame right? Topless Irene Cara crying in high-def should look masterful.
