Catch Ridley Scott’s Edge-of-Your-Seat Thriller, “The Counselor,” on February 11!

unnamed-001To be fair, I did not come up with the title of this post nor would I have wanted to write that, that was on the press release e-mail.  That said, while I was initially disappointed in theaters by Ridley Scott’s The Counselor, I am one to pay attention to his extended/director cuts of his films, as they often tend to work even better than the theatrical cuts.  I am still not sure if the film could actually play better, if it were longer, but I am certainly curious if a different cut will make me disregard how bad Cameron Diaz was in this film or how little I cared for these characters.  Regardless, there is a solid-looking Blu-ray headed to stores on February 11th.  Continue on to learn more about this upcoming release.

    Extended and Unrated gets me curious. Ridley Scott’s Extended/Unrated/Director’s Cuts turn out pretty good.
