Default So I wandered into the DVD store yesterday...

...and saw:

A new Punisher Movie

A Far Cry Movie

Now, i know it will be a waste of time/money, but I also know that I will not be able to resist either and the longer I wait the more I will want to see them.

Is Far Cry a straight to dvd release? I don't think it came out here at the cinema at all...

Both were straight to DVD here.
Punisher 2 isn't too bad. OTT action. Alright for a popcorn action movie.

Apparently Far Cry is so bad it melted cinema screens and made viewers eyes bleed! Hence the direct to DVD over here. It also comes with a free lobotomy voucher.

*I have not seen this movie.... Yet.

You know it makes sense...

I love how Uwe Boll gets to make these movies while semi-decent scripts get rejected all the time.

Chalk it up to German tax loopholes.
Actually have any of these Uwe Boll classics made a cinema release in NZ?

Ended up getting Bolt on Blu-ray - was good, enjoyed, better than i expected.

Straight-to-DVD movies are straight to DVD for a reason!

Slumdog Millionaire was almost a straight to DVD release.

I can confirm that the second Punisher movie is indeed crap on a stick, I would rather stab myself in the eyeballs than watch that again.... First one was cool though.

i must say the farcry movie is a good one, and i knew about the second punisher movie and heard it was too violent for NZ cinemas. also the farcry movie follows the first game really well, just jack carver has an Asian accent? the game hes American, without the accent
