I haven't exactly been shy about the fact that I don't get the whole Boondock Saints
phenomenon. To put a finer point on it, I think the first movie was bad, the sequel was awful
, and writer/director Troy Duffy is an incredibly annoying human being who thinks he's way more talented and original than he actually is.
But hey, it takes all kinds, am I right?
So, for all you Boondock Saints
fans out there -- and I have no doubt you are out there, and will soon be making yourselves known in the comments -- I bring the presumably exciting news that The Boondock Saints
is getting a new Blu-ray release this summer. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced a June 14th street date for the two-disc The Boondock Saints (Truth and Justice Edition)
. It will include both the R-rated and unrated director's cut of the flick, plus a bunch of bonus features as outlined below. Good luck with all that.
