Coming to DVD: Drop Dead Rock starring Adam Ant and Deborah Harry

Drop Dead Rock Starring Adam Ant and Deborah Harry
To Be Released On DVD December 8
MVD Visual is pleased to announce the DVD release of the cult classic Drop Dead Rock on December 8, 2009.

Drop Dead Rock stars '80's music icons Adam Ant and Deborah Harry. This film festival favorite played the art house circuit when it premiered in 1995. It was written by Ric Menello and Adam Dubin, the creators of the Beastie Boys classic music video Fight For Your Right To Party. Drop Dead Rock was directed by Adam Dubin who recently directed comedian Lewis Black's concert film Stark Raving Black.

"I wanted to make a 60's movie about an 80's rock star in the 90's," said Dubin.

Drop Dead Rock is a no holds barred, rock and roll comedy. A down and out, rock n' roll band, Hindenburg, kidnap their favorite British rock star, Spazz-O, and hold him hostage. The problem is, Spazz-O's ex-porn star wife Holly Everest (Playboy lingerie model Chelsey Parks) and his back-stabbing manager, Dave Donovan (Adam Ant), can't wait to get their hands on his fortune, and have hired a hitman to do him in. Thanks to a media feeding frenzy, Spazz-O's career is hotter than ever. Enter media mogul Thor Sturmundrang (Deborah Harry) with a big advance check. Now Spazz-O is worth more alive than dead. Dave must outwit the bumbling band, clumsy cops, ruthless record execs and terrifying terrorists to get his just reward. Drop Dead Rock explodes in a comic free for all.

"The film is good. I can't tell you how much it made me laugh doing it," said Ant. "I still laugh now just thinking about it. It's kind of like a 90's Spinal Tap."

Film Threat predicted, "Drop Dead Rock is destined for late night cult status and instant success in the video market."

Eight (Years) is Enough: Time to Rethink Afghanistan

"Greenwald demonstrates deft timing with RETHINK AFGHANISTAN, a documentary questioning the American presence there ... [the film] presents a flurry of sights, voices and figures, many of them compelling." — The New York Times

"Sending more troops will not make the U.S. safer; it will only build more opposition against us. I urge you on behalf of truth and patriotism to consider carefully and rethink Afghanistan." — Retired Corporal Rick Reyes, speaking before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations

NEW YORK (NOVEMBER 19, 2009) — As President Obama redirects his attention from the Iraq War, no documentary film could be more timely or relevant than RETHINK AFGHANISTAN, from award-winning filmmaker Robert Greenwald and his Brave New Foundation. This groundbreaking documentary from the creator of such films as Uncovered: The War on Iraq and Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers is among the first films to raise hard questions about the war and the United States' escalating military involvement.

As the U.S. involvement in Afghanistan continually creates unintended consequences, RETHINK AFGHANISTAN investigates the most striking issues surrounding the war — the impact on our troops, Pakistan's still underreported involvement, and the cost of war in financial and human terms — through the eyes of experts and the people of Afghanistan.

Launched in January 2009 on a small budget, Greenwald originally released a series of online segments that introduced significant and serious questions in an effort to change public opinion on the war. Hopeful that it would raise the level of public discourse, Brave New Foundation then edited their context into RETHINK AFGHANISTAN, a feature-length film with the ultimate goal to compel all Americans to ask key questions about the war. The campaign has already successfully helped retired Corporal Rick Reyes, who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, to testify before Senator John Kerry and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and to discuss the issue with members of Congress.

In recent months, with waning support for the war, tens of thousands of citizens have gathered to watch segments of the documentary through grassroots screenings in local churches, theaters, and community centers across the country. With all the house parties and screenings that have been held and continue to be scheduled, RETHINK AFGHANISTAN is now available for the first time everywhere DVDs are sold.

We all must RETHINK the war in Afghanistan TODAY.

The suicide cult that off-ed themselves at the foot of a Mayan pyramid in the early part of the new blockbuster disaster 2012 actually killed themselves to avoid having to sit through the rest of the 158 minutes of grueling, trite and utterly predictable celluloid. The movie itself was the greatest disaster of them all. Just watch the trailers and featurettes and sleep well that you've pretty much seen all the best parts of this film. Come armageddon, come.

(no one that sees this film!)

V (2009)


Last night ABC premiered a sleek and stylized revamping of the 80's TV series. In contrast to the original, being replayed ad nauseam on the SyFy channel for weeks now, the new series wastes no time in weaving in contemporary issues of immigration, terrorism and universal heath care - though it was disappointingly presented as an alien, and thus evil idea - along with quickly revealing the Visitors true reptilian identity. As the Visitors ships descend from the heavens over every major city a message goes out from their leader, not a grandfatherly like leader of the original series, but a super hot Morena Baccarin (Inara on Firefly), letting the world know that they have come in peace and are only interested in the trade of resources to continue their mission. However, by the end of the pilot FBI agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell), who's son is lured into being an advocate for the Visitiors by yet another hot alien girl, discovers that the Visitors have been already been on earth for some time as a terrorist sleeper cell. With the underground resistance formed, the conspiracies welling up to the surface, and their reptilian skin revealed in just the first episode, I look forward to seeing where the producers will take this exciting new series.
