Hudson Hawk SE - 11/20


Yes, it's really being released, just in time for the 20% off sales at DeepDiscount and DVD Planet, too!

For reference, here's the discussion thread from the July '06 non-release: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread.php?t=466417
The DVD Talk Review: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=31356 (by Brian Orndorf)

Hawk is one of my guilty pleasures, and I'll happily double-dip for this.


Would you like to swing on a star....

Dammit, I NEED to see this one soon. I'm a sucker for the early 90's phase of "Bruce Willis Does an Action Movie Without 'Die' or 'Hard' in the Title" subgenre. And I have a feeling I'll have some unabashed love for this, given how much I praise The Last Boy Scout (which needs an SE or HD release badly) and Last Man Standing.

Hidden text not on the box making me want to see this: "From the director and writer of HEATHERS and the co-writer of THE ADVENTURES OF FORD FAIRLANE!"

EDIT: Holy shit that clip was GREAT. I know the song is famous, but I couldn't help but wonder that was the theme from Out of This World Willis and Aiello were singing.

It's more of a comedy and less of an action movie for what it's worth.

I'd love to order it next week from DD but unfortunately they do not appear to have it listed. Just about every other site does but not deepdiscount.com.

Heh, you're right. Oh well, DVD Planet's price is quite competitive, and with 20% off it's a slam-dunk.



Cappucino! You remembered!

I've never ordered from DVD Planet. Can you preorder with the 20% off or is it like DD where you have to wait for Tuesday when it is actually released? How much is their shipping? Thanks in advance.

Just checked DVD Planet's site. The upcoming SE is not listed for sale (oop) & the one listed as the SE is the old release. I wonder if the status will change by next Tuesday when it's released. The new one doesn't even come up on search but you can find it by searching Bruce Willis.

Looks like they've got the right version (the 2007 SE version... the 2006 15th anniversary edition that had been planned for last summer had a green cover - see below), the right release date, the right item number, and the right price. The only hiccup appears to be that DVDP's system is showing it as OOP instead of New Release.

[Edited to add] The un-released 2006 15th anniversary cover:

I went ahead and posted a question for Mark from DVD Planet about this over in the "DVD Bargains" thread... http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=341
