July 2008 Releases

New Blu-ray, CD, DVD, and PS3 releases for the month of July that seem interesting to me for one or more reasons.

July 1

Blu-ray

    Gangs of New York
    Point Break: Pure Adrenaline Edition

    • I don’t wanna sound like a queer, but I always liked this movie.

CDs

    Deltron 3030Deltron 3030 (re-issue)

    • If you don’t already own the original, which you should, go buy this. It’s a fukken masterpiece.

DVDs

    Lamb of God - Walk With Me in Hell

    • Documentary and other live footage.
    • 07/15: Picked it up at FYE after work tonight. It’s fucking badass. I couldn’t stop laughing at the Tiger Head part. I need one. I think most of the Disc 2 stuff is on the DVD that came with the Deluxe Edition of Sacrament though. At the end there is a melody and pictures of a woman with LoG then it says “In Loving Memory of Evie Carrano” so I googled the name. From LoG forums:

Evie Carrano was a beautiful person. She started with us as a merch girl and became our assistant tour manager and band assistant. Not only did she work for the band, but she was a dear friend to all of us….a sassy sister amongst the dirt bag brothers. She went to the doctor because she had a nagging ache in her shoulder and was diagnosed with Leukemia. It was a total shock to her and everyone around her. She was diagnosed on a Monday and by Tuesday of the following week she was gone. We all loved her and miss her dearly.
