Top Shelf Tuesday - January 20

by spike.com   January 20, 2009 at 3:00PM  |  Views: 117

Mark Wahlberg takes fast-paced action to a new level in Max Payne, an album of remixes from Radiohead's Thom Yorke, and Samuel L. Jackson as the world's first jive-talkin' samurai...it's Top Shelf Tuedsay!

DVD

You have the Max Payne video game, and now you can get your hands on the movie. Max Payne hits shelves today in a single-disc DVD, a two-disc special edition and the high-definition Blu-ray. Some of the extra features include audio commentary by director John Moore and visual effects supervisor Everett Burrell, as well as a featurette entitled Picture Documentary. And for those of you looking to check out a little more of this fast-paced action film, you’ll be pleased to find the digital copy of the unrated extended cut.

The futuristic horror/rock-opera Repo! The Genetic Opera will make horror and rock fans everywhere happy, especially when they see it’s available today on both DVD and Blu-ray. This little indie slasher/rocker includes some tasty extra features, too: commentary tracks, two featurettes, and a look behind-the-scenes at how the play was adapted to the big screen. So treat yourself to some bloody, organ-stealing, rock opera fun.

Music

Antony and the Johnsons' highly-anticipated follow-up to I Am a Bird Now has finally arrived. With The Crying Light, Antony shifts his focus and explores a relationship with the natural world. The intimacy and genuine tone the Johnsons' voice circles around symphonic arrangements by avant-classical composer Nico Muhly. All of those diehard Hercules and Love Affair fans out there need to scoop this LP as son as possible because this record is sure to be one of the year’s best.

The Eraser Remixes is a Japanese release that collects all the 12-inch remixes originally found on Yorke's debut solo album The Eraser. The Radiohead frontman asked several of his favorite artists and producers to remix these tracks and they are nothing short of amazing. The names include: Burial, Four Tet, The Field, Cristian Vogel, The Bug, Modeselektor, Various and Surgeon. The results of these revamped tracks are as bold and brilliant as the originals.

Samuel L. Jackson plays the wise-cracking, jive-talking, black samurai in Afro Samurai, a blood-soaked battle through feudal Japan.  On a quest of honor to avenge his father’s death, Afro slices and dices his way through a Kill Bill-level blood-soaked Japan fighting ninjas, samurai, and (at one point) strippers.  Two of Afro’s best moves should give you an idea about the style of combat.  The “Pimp Hand” and the “Hardwood Thrust” are two particularly stylish and deadly maneuvers.

Rolling into a domain almost exclusively run by Tony Hawk and his mighty brand is not an easy trick to pull off.  However, Skate did it with a certain aplomb and Skate 2 has refined many of the rough edges from Skate and added a few new tweaks.  Probably the best one is the ability of riders to accidentally (or on purpose for the masochistic) kick their boards away from them mid-air leaving them in a spread-eagle free fall to the hospital.
