The Cinematic Katzenjammer: DVD Court: Judgement Day

Tuesday

DVD Court: Judgement Day


Hey everyone. This week, I'm starting something new. In my blogging, I've developed some great friendships with a lot of other writers from all around the world. Some of these people I talk to every day and consider them real friends. So, I decided to come up with a little idea. I'm initiating my own version of a "blog-family", where we share ideas, help each other out, be it through motivation or inspiration, and on occasion  team up for an article or review. One of these features is going to be a DVD roundup each Tuesday, where we each tell you whether a title is worth watching. The rating system is simple- Burn It, Skip It, Rent It, Buy It. This feature is something I want to turn into a place where people can come and find out what's the best thing to watch this week and what's the movie you just need to avoid at all costs. Some flicks are released, some are condemned to DVD Hell. DVD Court is now in session.

Nick of The Cinematic Katzenjammer
Ries of The Cinematic Katzenjammer

Glad you like it! It's a good step in a new direction!

Lookin good, man, one thing though. A verdict needs to be unanimous, technically, most of these are hung juries and the judge would grant a mistrial, to which it would be re-tried. Just a fun fact, but this looks real nice.

I've just been directed here by Andy, and this looks like a great feature! Will be checking out more of the site now as well.

Fantastic idea. Looks great. How can someone(me) eventually become a jury?

Haven't quite figured out the system yet.. but have some ideas. Toss me your email and I'll sent out a message.

Woo. Glad to see people coming on over from AWM. And thank you for the feedback and subscribing!

Wow, I was expecting everyone to say buy Obama's America. :P

Honestly, this looks great and I am pretty sure that I'll keep coming back to check it out.

Thanks!! It's a fun little thing that can bring a lot of bloggers together.

And yes... Obama's America (the movie) needs to be burned forever and ever.

Great little feature man. Short and sweet. Straight to the point. I like it.

Great idea, however was Joe the only one to watch Madagascar 3???

Mavi,

No, Andrew and Sara, and Dave each have links to their reviews as well.

I was being a little sarcastic... because hes the only one i agreed with :)

 
At October 18, 2012 at 9:38 AM , Blogger Nick said...

Haha. Also though, even if we hadn't seen it, we still vote on what we ourselves will be doing with the flick. For instance, I did not like Mad 1 or 2 AT ALL and thus my vote to skip 3.

 
At October 18, 2012 at 9:45 AM , Blogger Joe Giuliano said...

Mavi,

It sounds like you have good taste!! LOL

I'm happy to report for Jury duty, although I would probably be the one causing a hung jury on 2016 (Rent It). Pre-Trial Publicity kept me out of theaters for Chernobyl Diaries and That's My Boy. Moonrise Kingdom is still to come before this court.

Madagascar 3, Death Penalty (except for the Circus song.)

What's your email?

Damn. Your site keeps getting better and better! "Adam Sandler tries to rehash the same shit over and over, and people keep buying it." - LOVE IT! I completely agree with everything on the list except for maybe Chernobyl Diaries. I haven't seen it yet and despite the majority saying 'Skip-It' this is one I feel I must check out. I will probably regret it, but what the hell. P.S. Burn the hell out of 'That's My Boy'!!!

Let us know what you think once you're done with watching Chernobyl Poo lol

Great site and great idea. I came over from Andy Watches Movies and will be sure to check this out regularly.

Thank you! Glad you like it and I'll have to thank Andy AGAIN lol
