It's been two years.
April 30, 2010, 9:14 p.m. CST
and Iron Man are both on Paramount's new pay channel, Epix, available on Cox Cable, Fios and coming soon to Dish.
April 30, 2010, 9:31 p.m. CST
...as of last Monday.
April 30, 2010, 9:44 p.m. CST
I have Comcast and no Epix channel that I'm aware of exists on it.
April 30, 2010, 9:45 p.m. CST
...Valkyrie for months now, but not once did I see a mention for Zack & Miri, or The Spirit. But then again, with a RT meter of 7, it's no wonder.

Really? Waiting for "Crystal Skull?" Seriously? To each his own, I guess. I'd just about rather choke down a vomit shake with extra chunks than watch that again.
April 30, 2010, 10:28 p.m. CST
...given the impending sequel, IRON MAN would've premiered next month. Showtime owes me an explanation. In the meantime, here's to the cable premieres of IGOR, THE SPIRIT and ZACK AND MIRI.

I remember back when I was in middle school, our cable service screwed up and we inexplicably got Showtime for free. Even then, I never watched it.
May 1, 2010, 3:10 a.m. CST
for this column and the info on Ironman/crystal skull being on epix.
May 1, 2010, 6:16 a.m. CST
putting actual links to the RT / MC pages, rather than just more diversions to Amazon? Fucking shills.
May 1, 2010, 8:09 a.m. CST
I'll never understand why Showtime premieres things a year and a half after they're theatrical run. Especially when HBO, Cinemax and STARZ have all resorted to premiering things 9 to 10 months after its theatrical run. I guess thats why Paramount and Lionsgate started EPIX. They must've got tired of their shit playing long after everyone stopped giving a crap about it.
May 1, 2010, 8:17 a.m. CST
It just seems like a lazy way for people to back up their opinions - "I must be right because Rotten Tomatoes agrees with me. Wah."
May 1, 2010, 9:32 a.m. CST
Thanks. That is all.
May 1, 2010, 10:01 a.m. CST
It's a great "experimental" movie. I call it that because it's not a true movie (@ only about 75 minutes in length). And Sasha Grey (yes Porn Star Sasha Grey) blew me away with her acting ability (no pun intended).
May 1, 2010, 10:06 a.m. CST
plus she takes it in the pooper.
May 1, 2010, 10:44 a.m. CST
Next to mine, of course.
May 1, 2010, 2:33 p.m. CST
...in The Girlfriend Experiment. I want that 75 minutes of my life back. I'm a HUGE Soderbergh fan and I absolutely loath that mess. Could barely keep myself awake. <P>Don't have Epix (yet) here on Comcast in the Bay Area, either.<P>Actually pretty excited for Five Minutes of Heaven, Trucker and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Also, cable is the only way I ever watched the previous Ice Age films. So I suppose I'll check that one out, too. And maybe now a few more people will finally see Zack and Miri... ehh, probably not.
May 1, 2010, 2:33 p.m. CST
...like this column.
May 1, 2010, 3:46 p.m. CST
It's good to get Movies 4-5 Months after their theatrical release.With Cable, it's for the most part a full fucking year or more. To hell with that.
May 1, 2010, 4:29 p.m. CST
are these premiere date posts... it would be great if they covered whether something is on the HD channels though...
May 1, 2010, 6:58 p.m. CST
SHOWTIME is the ONLY pay channel that shows movies OAR. Those of you looking to see CRYSTAL SKULL or IRON MAN (on the TERRIBLE Epix channel...and the wait for new films is just as long as it was with SHOWTIME. The wait is due to the studios...not SHOWTIME) or TRANSFORMERS 2, etc. can watch them with at least one-third or more of the picture missing. At least on SHOWTIME, the movies are presented as seen in theaters. I've dumped HBO and passed on EPIX but I'll never drop SHOWTIME.
May 1, 2010, 6:59 p.m. CST
Showtime does not have the rights to IRON MAN. But you can see the cropped version on EPIX.
May 1, 2010, 9:30 p.m. CST
May 1, 2010, 9:49 p.m. CST
Why am I still paying to watch year old movies?
May 1, 2010, 11:38 p.m. CST
And I've not seen hide nor hair of Epix.
May 2, 2010, 11:21 a.m. CST
...yes, but not in HD. All HD movies are cropped on that channel (Except for Pixar films...I guess they don't give Starz a choice, God bless 'em!).

It wasn't enough to be pimping DVD releases on a daily basis, now this? Herc's output for this site is like 95% shilling and 5% analysis/news.

actually decent. I really enjoyed it. Anyone else? Man, Showtime pretty much takes up that entire list.

Meh, not so much. I did learn how the 'Dutch Rudder' works, though. Plus, the film featured an awesome song by Live. Naturally, it's not available on the soundtrack.
