If They Move, Kill 'Em

In the midst of this bitter cold transit strike I heard some really great news. By way of Google Alerts I got an e-mail announcing the release of the Sam Peckinpah Box Set I've been waiting for. So I went over to Amazon to see if it was for real and sure enough, there it was. Ready for release on January 10th. If you want to see an amazing director do his thing with these four great films pre-order this set now!

Along with featurettes and commentary we finally get to see The Wild Bunch in all it's uninterrupted glory (the previous release does the unthinkable. It stops in mid-film for the viewer to flip the DVD to the other side for continuation. I mean, come on!!!)
