DVD Tuesday: The God of Rock and Cock

Before you

Mark Wahlberglights up TV screens this week as Shooter reaches the DVD shelves. I don't know about you, but this tale of double-crosses and revenge had a distinct late 80s/early 90s vibe to it for me. Did Sly pass on this script 20 years ago or was it Steve in '95?

For those of you who want to see Samuel L. Jackson in full-on Samuel L. Jackson mode, pick up Black Snake Moan. As an added bonus for you freeze-framers, Christina Ricci is fairly generous with flashes of her naughties.

The failure of Dead Silence ensures a Saw 4. Peaceful Warrior has a creepy The Secret vibe to it. Cult camp classics, classic DC cartoons and new seasons of TV after the jump.
