Shamrocks, Shenanigans, Aliens and Predators...

Happy St. Paddy's Day - to paraphrase Kevin from The Lobby, don't be too much of a pylon.

St. Paddy's Day is also NEW RELEASE DAY! Unfortunately, pickings are slim. There's only one new release I'm "gunning" for, and that's the new Punisher: War Zone. I heard great things, but unfortunately this had the shelf life of Chinese chocolate and got pulled from theatres before I had a chance to catch it.

My other acquisition for today:
I figure, why fight the legions of drunken, pants-shittingly-drunk frat boys gorging themselves on piss weak beer dyed the color of Paris Hilton porno night vision when I can pick up this triple-cheese-fest, snag a sixer of Guinness, and bask in Irish stereotypes.

Unfortunately, this set doesn't include the prestige films Leprechaun 4: In Space, Leprechaun in the Hood, and Leprechaun: Back 2 Tha Hood. Those films were a pot o'gold. Well... a pot of something anyways.

Now, I haven't actually seen any of the first three movies, so after viewing them tonight I may very well need to drown my sorrows in green ale, get pissed, and punch people in the face to the tune of Dropkick Murphys.

By the way, if Hollywood is so desperate for remake fodder, why not remake Leprechaun? You could hire Tom Cruise to star....

In other news, AICN posted this great article. These are New Zealand ads to promote screenings of Alens Vs Predator on SkyTV

Sadly, AVP: The Hustler, AVP: Shuttlecock, and AVP: Searching for Bobby Fischer sound more exciting than the last two movies.
And finally, kudos to Jason and the gang at Happy Harbour Comics for raising over $2000 for Big Brothers and Sisters of Edmonton this past weekend. 19 budding local artists came out for the 12 Hour Comic Challenge and not only raised money, but came up with a 12 page comic book! Also of note, Happy Harbour and The Paint Spot are both chipping in .10 cents for every dollar raised, and Jason also hopes to reprint the comic soon.
Cheers, guys!
