Nice pic of Heath Ledger as the Joker from the upcoming sequel to "Batman Begins", "The Dark Knight"; Looks like Ledger will play the Joker as he was portrayed in the comic books - "...a cold blooded mass murdering clown!"

Very good news to see that NoShame are not dead and buried!
Twitch has (as do many sites) a relationship with NoShame‘s USA arm which goes back to their relatively recent inception and shrouded-in-mystery demise, or should I say apparent demise. People have been scrambling to pick-up DVDs from their reasonably prolific output of USA DVDs in recent times, fearing the worst and predicting they’ll be permanently OOP soon as there was no true and concrete sign NoShame would be back from a regrouping of their business, or from an apparent trip to secure USA rights for further releases - well, in with the rumors that had been flying around forums in recent months, there was a mention for a wider release for a TV Series of four hour-long films partly directed by Argento in his earlier career years, under a few different names as it happens, that has appeared in a scarce Dragon DVD over in Germany in years gone by. I’ve that set stuck away somewhere, but many didn’t get their hands on one of those several thousand sets, many have some to Argento (as they will) since. Here’s your chance then.
I will wait to hear more specific and detailed information about any permanent resurrection, but for now this listing seems to confirm we could hope for a revival of the company… I hope, this time around, that they continue some of their excellent choices with genres favored by American audiences, and that some of the weaker stuff few obviously connected too will avoid any other difficult times in their future - they’ve been a great source of some classics, and a good example (quite often) of how to go about things in terms of providing supporting information on a reliable basis.

What with the almighty $$$$ taking a pounding, Amazon.com's recent Black Friday sale, is proving too good to resist! With the "Hill Street Blues" and "Lone Gunmen" boxsets already here at Trash Towers, a late night internet browsing session has meant that "300", "Volver" and "Les Vie des Autres (The Lives of Others)" are also on the way for a little under $40 (about £20!). Not only that I'm now being sent "Future-Kill:Special Edition" from fellow blogger Louis Fowler over at Damaged 2.0, so the collection keeps growing at silly rate, but hey I'll be lucky if I ever get to see half of what I have!

How good does this look like it's shaping up to be! De Niro and Pacino with support from the great Brian Dennehy, Carla Gugino and 50 Cent!
How awesome is De Niro at the end there! One to watch in 2008 that is for sure!
Due to the strong pound versus the almighty $ (!), I took advantage of the Amazon.com TV boxset sale, going for "Hill Street Blues S1" and X-Files spinoff "The Lone Gumen" both only retailing for $14.99 each!!!
Also coming my way is some Pinky Violence via "Rica" and "Legends of the Poisonous Seductress: Female Demon Ohyaku" Nice month of viewing ahead if I can find the time!!
