ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): So many amazing titles reviewed in the past 7 days. Since it was the last Blu-ray I reviewed, I am still in the thralls of Jean-Marc Vallée's Wild and give it a very high recommendation! I think that the Imitation of Life (34' + 59') Blu-ray package hold immense value with both Stahl and Sirk versions, each in 1080P plus a commentary. What about Carol Reed's Odd Man Out via Criterion's stacked, new, Blu-ray release, or Alexander Mackendrick's Sweet Smell of Success in an Arrow Blu-ray package, or Criterion's Blu-ray of Preston Sturges' Sullivan's Travels? Wait, there's more - Arrow's Blu-ray of Jack Hill's Coffy with peak-value Pam Grier? We also have Masters of Cinema's Blu-ray release of Sidney Lumet's dark The Offence with Sean Connery. We haven't even mentioned the Twilight Time Blu-rays we've covered - a new 4K transfer of the 1959 Journey to the Center of the Earth, same genre and era The First Men in the Moon and a spanking new Blu-ray of the Olive Stone's neo-noir U Turn. We must mention the exceptional value of Blue Underground's The Lucio Fulci Collection with 3 solid Blu-rays for one reasonable price. Garden of Evil is a fabulous western and has Gary Cooper, Richard Widmark and Susan Hayward. We urge you to see our comparison on the European DVD and Blu-rays. Aldo Lado's Night Train Murders on 88 Films Blu-ray is a competent rendering of a riveting horror. Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell is a highly rated comedy from 1968 with Gina Lollobrigida now on Kino-Lorber Blu-ray. The Quiet Gun is an above average western with tension between Forrest Tucker and Lee Van Cleef now on Olive Blu-ray. Journey to the Far Side of the Sun is a decent late 60's science-fiction film that has reached Blu-ray status. The White Buffalo has Charles Bronson on a Moby Dick-like quest. The Boogey Man has 80's slasher-appeal with an intriguing storyline. Night Game combines sports and serial killing. Arthur Penn's film Alice's Restaurant has singer/songwriter Arlo Guthrie in a hap-hazard embodiment of America’s youth. On DVD Eric covered Pictures of the Old World by Second Run - an amazing documentary from 1972 and the new French comedy If You Don't, I Will. See you next week! "We are never prepared for what we expect." -James A. Michener


Wild BD - From the director of Dallas Buyers Club (Jean-Marc Vallée), WILD recounts the reckless behavior of Cheryl Strayed (Witherspoon), who makes a rash decision to embark on a challenging trek across the Pacific Crest Trail. With absolutely no experience, she sets out to hike more than a thousand miles all on her own — in what becomes an unforgettable journey of transformation and redemption that strengthens and ultimately heals her. Blu-ray Release date: March 31st, 2015

Imitation of Life (34' + 59') BD - Based on the 1933 best-selling novel, Imitation of Life is one of the most beloved and respected stories of all-time. This emotionally charged drama chronicles the lives of two widows and their troubled daughters as they struggle to find true happiness in a world plagued by racism. The Imitation of Life 2-Movie Collection includes both versions of the film, the original 1934 Best Picture nominee starring Claudette Colbert and the 1959 masterpiece starring Lana Turner. With storylines tackling racism, romance, family, success and tragedy, Imitation of Life is a powerful story that still resonates with audiences today. Blu-ray Release Date: April 7th, 2015

Journey to the Far Side of the Sun BD - Sci-fi adventure and suspense has never been more exciting or intense as when you Journey to the Far Side of the Sun! One hundred years in the future, two astronauts are sent to uncover the secrets of a "duplicate" Earth on the other side of the Sun. When they crash land three weeks earlier than they had planned, they must embark on a life-or-death mission to determine whether they have arrived back home or on the strange mirror world. This imaginative space adventure offers a journey few will ever forget! Blu-ray Release Date: April 7th, 2015

Journey to the Center of the Earth BD - The spelunkers (cave tourists) on this journey are a Scottish geologist, his prize student, the widow of a rival, an Icelandic peasant and a seeing-eye duck. And their journey into the interior (of the earth, that is) becomes a series of lurid adventures that keep them all on considerable edge. They are chased down extremely narrow passages by massive tumbling rocks, they are caught in underground chambers by fearfully cascading floods, they run into giant meat-eating lizards in the middle of the earth and find the lost city of Atlantis some-where near the fiery molten core. Blu-ray Release date: March, 2015

U Turn BD - Oliver Stone directed this John Ridley screenplay adapted from Ridley's novel Stray Dogs. A drifter (Sean Penn) eludes Las Vegas collection agents and arrives in a small town where he decides to linger after his car has a breakdown. Here he gets involved with the locals, including an unhappily married couple -- a businessman (Nick Nolte) and his seductive, femme-fatale wife (Jennifer Lopez). A trailer trash teen (Claire Danes) also approaches him in an effort to get away from her abusive boyfriend (Joaquin Phoenix). Tensions in the town escalate, eventually leading to murder. Stone wanted to change the title from U-Turn back to Stray Dogs but encountered a problem with Akira Kurosawa, who felt it was too similar to his detective classic, Stray Dog (1949) with Toshiro Mifune. Blu-ray Release date: March, 2015

The First Men in the Moon BD - Special effects maestro Ray Harryhausen’s First Men in the Moon (1964) posits a modern-day U.N. lunar mission which discovers – lo and behold! – that a motley little 19th-century human crew has beaten them to it.

Featuring a cameo appearance from horror legend John Carradine, and an alluring leading lady turn from the sexy Scream Queen Suzanna Love, THE BOGEY MAN was a critical and commercial smash hit upon its original 1980 release. Blu-ray Release Date: March 23rd, 2015

Alice's Restaurant BD - Guthrie, using his musical monologue Alice’s Restaurant Massacre as a template, and under Arthur Penn’s assured direction, Alice’s Restaurant is a free-flowing, free wheeling, counter-culture comedy set during the turbulent 60’s adapted from Guthrie’s musical monologue Alice’s Restaurant Massacre.

The New York Ripper: A blade-wielding psychopath is on the loose, turning The Big Apple bright red with the blood of beautiful young women.

Hunsecker, and Tony Curtis as Sidney Falco, the unprincipled press agent Hunsecker ropes into smearing the up-and-coming jazz musician romancing his beloved sister. Featuring deliciously unsavory dialogue, in an acid, brilliantly structured script by Clifford Odets and Ernest Lehman, and noirish neon cityscapes from Oscar-winning cinematographer James Wong Howe, Sweet Smell of Success is a cracklingly cruel dispatch from the kill-or-be-killed wilds of 1950s Manhattan. Arrow Blu-ray Release Date: March 30th, 2015

Sullivan's Travels BD - This masterpiece by Preston Sturges is perhaps the finest movie-about-a-movie ever made.

The threesome agree to the expedition, their interest piqued by the possibility of picking up some gold themselves. During the harrowing journey, the party's already frayed nerves are aggravated when the men become attracted to Hayward. The group arrives at the mine's location--the Garden of Evil, so named because the Indians regard it as the domain of evil spirits. Resen Blu-ray Release Date: February 17th, 2014

Pictures of the Old World - Du an Hanák s renowned film (voted the best Slovak film of all time by critics in 2000) is a poetic visual essay on the forgotten peoples of remote villages in the Tatra Mountains. Inspired by the photographs of Slovak artist Martin Martin ek (1913 2004), whose pictures distilled entire lifetimes into luminous, intransient images, Hanák creates his own distinctive impressions of the artist s work, crafting a polyphony of human stories.

Meanwhile, Pomme begins an extended meditation in the forest on where her own life should go next, with or without Pierre. In the end, both are left to contemplate the strength and meaning of each other's commitment. DVD Release Date: April 7th, 2015
