Dental Woes...

I got an odd look from the lady in the pharmacy when I asked for 'Corsodyl' today. She asked why I might need it, with a tone like she was accusing me of a crime. I explained that I needed it to rinse my mouth.
"Really?" She enquired further, a steely look now engraved on her face, "I don't think that'll help."
I was feeling tired, and quite ill, and in no need for dental advice from her.
So, I repeated my request, a tad slower, only then did I realize that I was mistakenly saying "Where would I find the chloroform?"
I very hastily corrected myself, bought the 'Corsodyl', and fled.

'V/H/S' on V/H/S

The film 'V/H/S' may have been a mixed bag of ideas with varying levels of quality of those ideas and delivery but I do like this bit of marketing for the film: 'V/H/S' on V/H/S

Judging movies by their covers...

New releases for this week and beyond...

Do you like 'Game of Thrones'? Well, the makers of this 'Game of Swords' would love it if you mistook this film for that show. They even changed the name of the movie from 'Day of Wrath' to help you make that mistake.

Bonus Terrifying 'Day of Wrath' cover:

'Cupid Dog'.
Alternate tagline: "Pray that you find love before Cupid Dog finds you..."

'Angel Dog': Don't look at the teeth! Don't look at the teeth! Don't look at the teeth!
I really hope that someone really regrets saying "Make it look like the dog is smiling on the cover of the dvd."

New marketing decisions...

Remember that bit in 'The Maltese Falcon' where a drunk Sam Spade dual wields laser shooting pistols? Because the steel book Blu-Ray case sure does...

Or remember when 'Near Dark' was 'Twilight'...?
