Hudson Hawk Special Edition DVD!!!!!!

Hudson Hawk Special Edition DVD!!!!!!

Postby Captain_Fucking_Magic on Tue Jul 25, 2006 6:59 pm

I know AICN's coverage of the weekly dvd releases is about as fresh as Harry on a sunny day, so I thought I'd mention this. There was supposed to be a Hudson Hawk 15th Anniversary dvd out today. I know, you're saying "hudson hawk special edition? come on." but Hudson Hawk is like a car accident, so bad that you just can't look away. I was planning on picking it up. But, then I find out that Sony quietly cancelled it! Not to mention that they also cancelled an upcoming Fish Called Wanda special edition. I mean they must have already pressed 'em and packaged 'em, and now they're just not going to release them? That fucking sucks.

Mod-EDIT:

Here it is

good day sir

Hudson Hawk was fantastically camp and hysterical.

Why the heck would they cancel A Fish Called Wanda? Brilliant film, Oscar-winning performance from Kevin Kline ... sheesh! Release it already!

CURSES!!! CURSES!!! This movie is f**king brilliant. Reason why peeps didn't like it cuz too many people couldn't keep up with the nonstop witty humour! (eg. Pope watching Mr. Ed in Italian)

Anyhoo....here ya go!

This is not so bad a movie as everyone likes to pretend. Unfortunately it was a very expensive rather bad movie and so, like Ishtar, it has become a symbol. But being less bad than we remember doesn't mean it should get a special edition. Does it even have enough of a following to be considered a cult picture?

Explorers is a potentially great movie about the wonders of childhood but it was spoiled, and we all know how. Princess Bride I enjoyed but I never understood the fascination it holds for people. Goonies is dumb. Monster Squad isn't very good at all.

No love for the Hawk? Gotta be some love for the Hawk in here?

What about Dr. Seuss? ;)

Hoping another Hudson enthusiast will catch this....... :roll:


Perhaps a MOD can change the title from CANCELED to Special Edition DVD!!!!!!

Instead of "Swingin' on a Star," Bruce and Danny Aiello should have synchronized their capers to this song.

Yup, saw your post Bob! :) Just was glad to see Rogue was another Hawk follower.

I may pick this up today at Walmart. I also want to get that animated movie, Meet the Robinsons.

I too like Hudson Hawk, though I can understand why people would hate it. It sometimes goes too far into the realms of cartoony (James Coburn beating up Bruce Willis at the end being a scene I can't really stand to watch).

There are some great over the top performances in there from Richard E Grant and Sarah Bernhard as well as possibly the best work David Curuso has ever done.

Dino's Princess Bride comments make me sad...

I wanted to like Hudson Hawk so badly because my gf at the time was in love with it... And I couldn't get into it at all...

I think it's the direction. If they had played everything straight - total deadpan - it would have worked for me. Instead it feels like everyone is far too aware that they're in a "comedy".

I can understand why people like it though.

Because they're crazy.
