Win Inglourious Basterds on DVD!

Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without some bad ass Tarantino awesomeness to share with the family. What could be better than sitting around with mom and pop after a big turkey and ham dinner to take in a little Nazi scalping?

Row Three is here to fill that dream of yours. We’ve got a copy of the two disk special edition of Inglourious Basterds (our review) which Andrew drooled over a few weeks back, ready to ship out to one of our lovable readers and listeners.

You want in? Here’s how you put your name in the hat. Drop a comment below with your pick for the worst Christmas movie ever. It could be a movie, or a TV show (I’m looking at you Star Wars Holiday Special!), – we’re not picky. Everyone who suggests a film (or two) will get an entry into the draw for the DVD. All of the selections will be discussed on the After the Credits Christmas Special at which point we’ll also announce the winner of the contest.

Fine print: there is none. Contest is open to everyone (except contributors. Sorry kids). Entries taken until December 15th.

Get those selections in and good luck!

VIFF 09 Review: Puck Hogs

PuckHogsMovieStill

It’s sad to see movies go downhill. You know what I mean, the ones that start off with great promise and then end badly. Some take their time to show their true colours while others take a while but one thing’s for sure, it’s always disappointing to see it happen. It’s even more disappointing when the movie in question starts off as well as Puck Hogs.

Warren P. Sonoda’s mockumentary about a recreational hockey team on their last legs starts off with a bang. It’s funny, it’s smart, it’s a bit crude and reminiscent of the often dumb, dry and sometimes genius comedy that has made “The Trailer Park Boys” such a huge success, but once the film moves past the opening ten minutes, it quickly devolves from funny to amusing to downright painful. It was a great relief to finally see Gyan, the “filmmaker”, return to make his final statements on hockey.
