ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Each time I see P.T. Anderson's There Will Be Blood it gets better. The Blu-ray is a marvelous way to see the film. I missed Prisoners on its first go-around but found the film an absolutely riviting and uncomfortable thriller. WOW. Hawks' Red River is an iconic western and Criterion have produced an amazingly complete Blu-ray package, if the general consensus leans to the Masters of Cinema's video transfer as more pleasing. The new Cohen Blu-ray of Claude Chabrol's The Color of Lies is incredibly advanced over the old SD presentation. Another great thriller from the French Hitchcock. Criterion bring us a beautiful 1080P transfer of Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, while Arrow have the definitive Blu-ray edition of Corman's The Pit and the Pendulum. Dan Curtis' Dracula gets a US Blu-ray release and compares favorably to the existing French edition. Masters of Cinema offer Elia Kazan's Noir gem Boomerang! on region 'B' Blu-ray. Frank Oz' Little Shop of Horrors is great fun and the Warner Blu-ray supports both DC and theatrical cuts. John Woo's Face / Off has some transfer issues and fans hope a superior 1080P edition is on the way. Shlocky Death Spa comes to Blu-ray looking faithful to its, low budget, late 80's roots. Daniel reviews another Blu-ray Audio package in Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. On DVD, Eric cover the intriguing Inspector De Luca Series as well as the horror Dead Weight. I watched, and reviewed, the SD discs of Robert Altman's Countdown and 1945's Noir-esque Circumstantial Evidence... Have a healthy week!


Death Spa BD - The new fitness club in town has everything a health nut could ever want: a variety of workout machines, classes taught by friendly (and frisky) instructors, and a state-of-the-art computer control system for maximum client comfort. Unfortunately it s also possessed by the evil spirit of the owner's dead wife, and before long every dumbbell, leg press, and rowing machine becomes a deadly weapon for her to enact bloody vengeance on the club s beautiful members. So if you re looking for a real workout from hell, enter DEATH SPA a new exercise in terror! Blu-ray Release date: May 27th, 2014

Prisoners BD - A small-town carpenter turns vigilante in order to rescue his abducted daughter and her best friend in this thriller starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Six-year-old Anna and her friend Joy have vanished on Thanksgiving without a trace. Devastated, Anna's father Keller Jackman makes note of a run-down RV that had been parked on their street at the exact time the girls went missing. When the driver, Alex Jones Paul Dano is swiftly arrested by Detective Loki Gyllenhaal, it starts to look like the lead will pay off. Alex, however, is quickly released due to lack of evidence, sending Keller into a frenzy as he realizes that if Anna isn't found soon, odds are she never will be. Knowing that time is not on his side, and ignoring Detective Loki's pleas to leave the case to the pros, Keller risks sacrificing his own freedom in a bid to locate the girls before it's too late. Blu-ray Release date: December 17th, 2013

The Color of Lies BD - "The Colour of Lies", a gentle but powerful psychological thriller, which targets a failing French painter and his increasingly introspective wife, both of whom live in a Brittany fishing village. One of his art students - a young girl - is found raped and murdered, and he - immersed in nervousness and gloom - is placed under the microscope by the police and the gossipy, judgmental community, with even his own expressions suggesting he might well be guilty. His wife's demeanor, meanwhile, hints at a woman who, though clearly very loving, would quite like to withdraw from her marriage and enjoy an affair with the media celebrity next door, a glib, charming egotist played by Antoine de Caunes. It is this ambiguity in both husband and wife which keeps the other - and us - guessing. Blu-ray Release Date: May 27th, 2014

Dan Curtis' Dracula BD - Natives in Transylvania seem afraid when they learn solicitor Jonathan Harker is going to Castle Dracula on business. Jonathan shows up, and finds the Count abrupt and impatient to get things done. He reacts very strongly to a photograph of Harker's fiancee Mina and her best friend Lucy. After rescuing Harker from his three Brides, the Count forces Harker to write a letter saying that he will be staying in Transylvania for a month. Harker climbs down the castle wall and finds Dracula's coffin, but is attacked and knocked out by one of Dracula's gypsy servants before he can stake Dracula. They later throw him in the lower levels of the crypt, where the Brides attack Harker... MPI Blu-ray Release Date: May 27th, 2014

The Pit and the Pendulum BD - American-International's standing "haunted castle" set is exhibited to peak advantage in Roger Corman's Pit and the Pendulum. Save for the climax, Richard Matheson's script bears but little resemblance to the Edgar Allen Poe original, though there are pronounced echoes throughout of Poe's The Premature Burial. Vincent Price stars as Nicholas Medina, the son of a notorious Spanish Inquisition torturer. Nicholas' wife Elizabeth (Barbara Steele) has died under mysterious circumstances, prompting Elizabeth's brother Francis (John Kerr) to arrive at the Medina castle to investigate. The tormented Medina believes that Elizabeth was buried alive, and is convinced that he can hear his wife's voice calling out to him. Arrow Blu-ray Release Date: May 19th, 2014

Boomerang! BD - When the murder of a piece results in a botched police investigation, prosecutor Henry Harvey (Dana Andrews) leads an effort to bring the murderer to justice. Once blackmail creeps into the investigation, all bets on an unclouded trial are off, resulting in an explosive finale that remains one of the toughest in Kazan's work. Blu-ray Release Date: May 26th, 2014

Little Shop of Horrors BD - In the basement of Mushnik's Skid Row florist's, weedy shop-boy Seymour pines for bubbly-blonde shop-girl Audrey. But the basement is also home to a strange and unusual plant, a growing, bloodthirsty demon determined to devour mankind. It's hard to pinpoint just what makes this surreal saga such a delight. There's the music, a wonderful doowop score from the off-Broadway hit based on Corman's 1960 cult classic. There's the antics of Second City veteran comedians (Murray, Candy, Belushi). There's Steve Martin as 'The Dentist', Audrey's biker-boyfriend, a happy-go-lucky sadist who nearly steals the show. And finally there's the plant, a 50-ft jiving, root-stomping, vegetable from whose 49-ft lips comes the voice of Levi Stubbs of the Four Tops. Though Frank Oz will be damned for changing the play's original ending - let them eat carrots - this wild and witty musical is great fun. Blu-ray Release date: October 9th, 2012

There Will Be Blood BD - Black gold eventually pours from the ground, of course, and when it does, a fellow prospector’s child is immediately baptized with it; Anderson spatters the lens with oil, too, initiating us into Plainview’s faith. Blood may tip its hat to John Ford and notions of collective ambition, but at bottom it’s a story of individual obsession—and may inspire a similar obsession in viewers. This is the most original and compelling Western in a year of Westerns: so new, so bleached of conventional beauty and so alienating (thanks in part to a nerve-jangling score by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood) that it might as well be set on Mars. Blu-ray Release Date: June 3rd, 2008

Face / Off BD - Pay attention, none of this makes much sense. Five years after the murder of his son, FBI agent Sean Archer (Travolta) finally has the drop on terrorist Castor Troy (Cage) - but with Castor comatose and a bomb ticking somewhere in LA, Archer's persuaded to undergo facial surgery, swapping Castor's features for his own. In this way, Archer-as-Troy (Cage) hopes to trick the location out of Castor's brother Pollux (Nivola). Unfortunately, Castor wakes up, and makes off with Archer's face, killing everyone who's in on the secret, and moving into his enemy's office. Woo's poetic-kinetic style has evolved, if not to the point of abstraction, then to delirium: he makes a virtue of incredulity. With two of Hollywood's most flamboyant actors playing each other, the movie becomes a kind of pop Heat, an elaborate self-parody and quasi-serious examination of the art of film acting. Yet there's an authentic subversive frisson as Travolta (as-Troy-as-Archer) sizes up his rebellious teenage daughter, puts the sizzle back into a stale marriage, and generally carries on with the air of a sociopath getting the most out of life. 'Are we having any fun yet?' he demands. Twice over. Blu-ray Release Date: June 3rd, 2008

The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou BD - Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) and his crew-Team Zissou-set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly nonexistent Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou's partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure. They are joined on their voyage by a young airline copilot (Owen Wilson); a pregnant journalist (Cate Blanchett); and Zissou's estranged wife, Eleanor (Anjelica Huston). Wes Anderson (Rushmore) has assembled an all-star cast that also includes Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Gambon, Noah Taylor, Seu Jorge, and Bud Cort for this wildly original adventure comedy. Blu-ray Release Date: May 27th, 2014

Red River BD - Despite its inherent flaw an easy case could be made for touting this as the greatest western of all time. Very easy. The mark of the 'western' genre is, for the most part, the history of pioneering the American old west. Strong, fearless men venturing to find a place of opportunity in which to settle. This epic tale focuses on failed leadership by Tom Dunson (John Wayne), on the first cattle drive down the Chisholm Trail. A man with single-minded desire for success and to make his make his mark in the expansive land in Texas. Filled with many subtle classic western-isms involving legendary gun handling, fighting Indians, forsaking women for future gains, growing beef for the good of the country and sticking to an honorable code. The flaw, as most know, is the ending - but being aware of it allows one to forget its existence and enjoy a true branding of Americana with some exquisite cinematography. Criterion Blu-ray Release Date: May 27th, 2014

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road BD Audio - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is an album of tremendous breadth, ranging from dramatic orchestral rock arrangements, glam, melodic arrangements and the rocking Saturday Night track that became a staple of radio for Sir Elton. The Marilyn Monroe tribute Candle In The Wind is one of the more melodic and touching tracks on the album, and remade as Goodbye England’s Rose for Lady Diana on her death. The album has something that appeals to almost everyone, reflected in the staggering initial response and the enduring appeal that this album has. Further testament is in the number of re-issues this album has seen. It cannot go out of print for long. Blu-ray Audio Release date: March 24th, 2014

Inspector De Luca - The Series - Between 1938 and 1948, from the height of Italy's Fascist regime to the end of the tumultuous post-war period, Chief Detective De Luca investigates and solves crimes in the City of Bologna and along the Adriatic coast. With little or no regard for those in power, whoever they happen to be, his solitary, uncompromising character often lands him in trouble, but his respect is reserved for the truth and justice alone. In the four TV movies of the series Unauthorized Investigation , Carte Blanche , The Damned Season and Via Della Oche each taken from a novel by best-selling mystery Carlo Lucarelli Chief Detective De Luca always ultimately gets to the bottom of his cases, though what he finds leaves a bitter aftertaste. DVD Release Date: April 14th, 2014

Circumstantial Evidence - Circumstantial Evidence is so expertly acted and directed that the audience is willing to forget its gaping logic holes. Pugnacious family man Joe Reynolds (Milo O'Shea), blowing his top as usual, threatens violence to an unlikeable storekeeper (Ben Welden). When the latter is killed, Joe is arrested for murder. Thanks to circumstantial evidence and faulty eyewitness accounts, Joe is sentenced to death in what seems to be a matter of days-and never mind that the defense attorney hasn't the presence of mind to enter medical testimony into the record. While awaiting his fate on death row (one of the nicest, most inviting death rows in cinema history), Joe is regularly visited by his young son Pat (Billy Cummings), who has always believed in his dad's innocence. For Pat's sake, Joe escapes from prison on the eve of his execution. DVD Release Date: October 15th, 2013

Countdown - Improvisational director Robert Altman hadn't yet found his cinematic "voice" when he helmed the conformist, stick-to-the-script Countdown. James Caan is top-billed as a scientist who is chosen over astronaut Robert Duvall for the upcoming NASA moon shot. In their haste to beat the Russians to the moon, the NASA folks have tried to sidestep several safety measures, but doctor Charles Aidman sees to it that every possible precaution is taken. When Caan makes it to the lunar surface, he stumbles upon gruesome evidence that the Russians had sent up a secret expedition themselves--and had fatally ignored all those extra security precautions which he's been subject to. Ted Knight, who received some of his best pre-Mary Tyler Moore roles in Altman's TV work, co-stars in Countdown. DVD Release Date: June 22nd, 2009

Dead Weight - On his day off, slacker Charlie Russell (Joe Belknap) receives a frantic phone call from his long-distance girlfriend Samantha MacReady (Mary Lindberg) about an attack on Minneapolis, and that she and her co-workers are going to attempt to get out of the quarantined city. Stuck in Toledo, Charlie hits upon the idea for them to find their way back to each other in Wausau, Wisconsin where they had their one year anniversary. An indeterminate amount of time later, Charlie has teamed up with Thomas (Aaron Christensen), Meredith (Michelle Courvais), Dustin (Sam Lenz), and Drew (Jess Ader) and is making his way to Wausau across treacherous terrain in which fellow survivors can be just as dangerous as the teaming "infected" (and even more vile). As Charlie recalls or reimagines the brighter days of his relationship with Samantha, it turns out that the other members of the group might have reason to be uneasy with him as the story he's sold them about Wausau doesn't gel with the arrangement he has made with Samantha, and he seems to have adapted to the violence required for their survival with alarming gusto.
