This movie, 6 SOULS. It’s loaded with clichés. However, it succeeds in its endeavor to be creepy. In this installment of PICK-UP SHOT, I give 6 SOULS the benefit of the doubt and question the veracity of the criticism of cliché. (Yes, I just typed ‘the criticism of cliché.’)

We’re gettin’ back in the groove of things. John and I just recorded Episode #185, in which we discuss a whole bunch of new Blu-ray and DVD releases including: Mill Creek’s WHEN A STRANGER CALLS/HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME 2-movie set; the Ridley Scott-produced/Tom Hanks-narrated docudrama KILLING LINCOLN; the astonishing FX extravaganza from South Korea THE TOWER; the Major League Baseball documentary LETTERS FROM JACKIE; and, a personal binge-watch favorite, COUNTING CARS: SEASON ONE on DVD. Lots of cool stuff on the way.
Until then, here’s the first episode of PICK-UP SHOT – our new, periodically published, single-title review podcast highlighting a new Blu-ray or DVD release. (Perfectly excellent time to press play on the media player below. Perfectly. Excellent.) The first featured title is Austin-based filmmaker Paul Gordon’s THE HAPPY POET, now on DVD from Cinema Libre Studio. (THE HAPPY POET is also available on Amazon Instant Video.)
On this episode, fellow film critic and BOFCA.com member Tim Estiloz joins Steve to talk about PACIFIC RIM, THE LONE RANGER, and what it was like to interview one of the most beautiful women in the world, Ms Bettie Page.

Steve and John discuss new DVD and Blu-ray releases including OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL 3D, HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS 3D, DARK SKIES, IT’S A DISASTER, and CLEOPATRA: THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION.
Steve and John discuss new DVD and Blu-ray releases including EARTH’S FINAL HOURS, THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT 2: GHOSTS OF GEORGIA and BLOODLINE: VENGEANCE FROM BEYOND, and the theatrical releases EVIL DEAD and THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES.
This month has certainly been transitional, what with John and I attempt to master the art of Skype recording. (We will. We promise!) But not to worry. More Post-Movie Podcast episodes are on the way. Episode 182 has been recorded and will magically appear on this page in the next few days.
