We loved Arizona here at BMD. From my review back in August:
"First time feature filmmaker Jonathan Watson was an assistant director and second unit man on Eastbound and Down and Vice Principals, respectively – not to mention owns a resume stretching back to Michael Bay's Bad Boys – which probably explains why Arizona feels like the extended season finale of a new Rough House Productions HBO series that we somehow missed the first seven episodes of. The film’s tone alternates between deadpan comedy and pitch-black violence, much like both Eastbound and Principals did, though there's definitely a bit more splatter than what diehard fans of those shows are used to."
Now, to celebrate the release of Arizona on Blu-ray, we're giving away three 4K/Blu/DVD copies of the film to you lucky readers. How do you win? Well, that's super simple. Just email me at [email protected] with your choice for favorite horror/comedy by this Sunday (October 14th) at midnight, and I'll choose/notify the winners shortly thereafter. It's that easy!
Trust me when I say you won't wanna miss this movie. It's so splattery and mean-spirited; a perfect viewing experience for this Halloween Season (not to mention companion piece to the Halloween sequel McBride just wrote with David Gordon Green).
For the rest of you, Arizona is available Tuesday, October 16th to purchase on 4K/Blu-ray/DVD and VOD, courtesy of RLJ Entertainment. Get some!
