This week for the archival DVD and Blu-Ray column we dive into the 3-D Blu-Ray release of Tony Scott's Top Gun, Michael Mann's The Insider, the forgotten about horror flick Schizo, and head over to the TV side of things for The Drunk and on Drugs Happy Funtime Hour, the second season of the Being Human reboot, and The Best of WCW Monday Nitro, Volume 2.
We talk to the trio of comic actors best known for playing The Trailer Park Boys about their most ambitious project to date The Drunk and on Drugs Happy Funtime Hour (now on DVD), the challenges faced with creating such a trippy show, crafting something entertaining for the messed up and sober in equal amount, and fighting with the network of the number of curses they could use.
Trailer Park Boys creator Mike Clattenburg returns to the big screen with Moving Day, a slight, but affable working class comedy that showcases the creator's adeptness at comedy and his awkwardness around sentimental material.
With the Canadian comedy Moving Day opening up in Toronto and Halifax this weekend, we got a chance to chat with director Mike Clattenburg about bringing TV stars to Halifax, a possible return of his greatest creation, The Trailer Park Boys, and the challenges of having a character chug 2L Pepsi bottles on the big screen.
