ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): So many wonderful Blu-ray experiences since the last full newsletter and although The Dardenne Brothers Rosetta remains a favorite film, the improved a/v quality of their first feature film, La Promesse on Criterion Blu-ray is such a huge improvement I announce this as the disc of the week as well as FEATURE Blu-ray of the MONTH. Kudos to Universal for their treatment of Spielberg's Jaws - the restoration has dramatically improved upon the previous DVDs. A great package. Francis Ford Coppola's Rumble Fish looks magnificent on Masters of Cinema's upcoming Blu-ray - very impressive. Louis Feuillade's Les Vampires benefits from the 1080P transfer from Kino - sweet. The Whisperer in Darkness cup runneth over with vintage, nostalgic style - very cool. Wes Anderson films all tend to improve with repeat viewings and The Royal Tenebaums is no exception and the Criterion Blu-ray provides a formidable HD presentation. Wong Kar-Wai's atmospheric and kinetic Fallen Angels looks great on AE's new Blu-ray - the film remains a fabulous ride. I think The Entity is a far better film than given credit for because of the subject matter - good value in that Blu-ray. One of the more addictive TV shows and Dexter Season 6 is an easy purchase for fans of the series. Derek Jarman's take on Shakespeare's The Tempest in 1080P should please his fan-base. Preminger's River of No Return didn't turn my head as much as I had wanted - Marilyn/Mitchum looked d shade waxy to me. The Incredible Mr. Limpet is Don Knotts at his most loveable and the family film on Blu-ray is a nice treat. Clue is a cute comedy but I wasn't overwhelmed about the 1080P image and while Fire With Fire is a better film experience than I anticipated - I question its existence on Blu-ray. Eric covered some DVDs this week including the intriguing Puppet Master, the interestingly-titled The Dead Want Women, the warped The Bunny Game and the Japanese exploitation flic True Story of a Woman in Jail; Continues. .Have a relaxing week!


Dexter Season 6 BD - The explosively popular Dexter is back with a vengeance for a sixth season of startling suspense and unexpected twists. It's been a year since last season's shocking and heartbreaking conclusion, and mild mannered criminologist-cum-grisly serial killer Dexter Morgan has come to terms with who he is. But his existence is shattered when he crosses paths with an enemy unlike any he's faced before. A delusional religious zealot with unflinching convictions, this new adversary soon draws Dexter into a dangerous game that could well end in disaster. Blu-ray Release date: August 14th, 2012

Les Vampires BD - After the success of his Fantomas films, French director Louis Feuillade attempted to create the ultimate espionage serial, a ten-episode, seven-hour epic called Les Vampires. Edouard Mathe stars as Philippe Guerande, a crime-fighting journalist who attempts to penetrate the international ring of thieves known as The Vampires. Among the most fascinating of these sophisticated thieves and assassins is Irma Vep (Musidora), a black-clad seductress whose name is an anagram for ''vampre'' and who endures today as an icon of European cinema. At times gruesome, fantastic, and romantic, Les Vampires was a spectacular accomplishment that influenced filmmakers for generations. Blu-ray Release Date: August 14th, 2012

Jaws BD - Directed by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, Jaws set the standard for edge-of-your-seat suspense quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and forever changing the movie industry. When the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack by a dangerous great white shark, the town’s chief of police (Roy Scheider), a young marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss) and a grizzled shark hunter (Robert Shaw) embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it strikes again. Featuring an unforgettable score that evokes pure terror, Jaws remains one of the most influential and gripping adventures in motion picture history. Blu-ray Release Date: August 14th, 2012

The Tempest BD - Shot on location at the ancient and ghostly Stoneleigh Abbey, The Tempest tells the story of Prospero the magician, who lives with his nubile daughter on an enchanted island and punishes his enemies when they are shipwrecked there. It's a study of sexual and political power in the guise of a fairy tale. Jarman presents Shakespeare's intricate comedy of magic and revenge in a form that is at once faithful to the spirit of the play and an original and dazzling spectacle mixing Hollywood pastiche, high camp, and gothic horror. His film recalls the innocent homoeroticism of Pasolini's versions of classics, while its lush sense of decor and color is worthy of Minnelli. Blu-ray Release date: August 7th, 2012

La Promesse BD - La promesse is the breakthrough feature from Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, who would go on to become a force in world filmmaking. The brothers brought the unerring eye for detail and the compassion for those on society’s lowest rungs developed in their earlier documentary work to this absorbing drama about a teenager (Jérémie Renier) gradually coming to understand the implications of his father’s making a living through the exploitation of undocumented workers. Filmed in the Dardennes’ industrial hometown of Seraing, Belgium, La promesse is a brilliantly economical and observant tale of a boy’s troubled moral awakening. Blu-ray Release Date: August 14th, 2012

The Royal Tenebaums BD - Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife, Etheline (Anjelica Huston), had three children—Chas, Margot, and Richie—and then they separated. Chas (Ben Stiller) started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) was a playwright and received a Braverman Grant of $50,000 in the ninth grade. Richie (Luke Wilson) was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure, and disaster. The Royal Tenenbaums is a hilarious, touching, and brilliantly stylized study of melancholy and redemption from Wes Anderson. Blu-ray Release Date: August 14th, 2012

Rosetta BD - The Belgian filmmaking team of brothers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne turned heads with Rosetta, an intense vérité drama that closely follows a poor young woman struggling to hold on to a job to support herself and her alcoholic mother. It’s a swift and simple tale made revelatory by the raw, empathetic way in which the directors render Rosetta’s desperation, keeping the camera nearly perched on her shoulder throughout. Many have copied the Dardennes’ style, but few have equaled it. This ferocious film won big at Cannes, earning the Palme d’Or for the filmmakers and the best actress prize for the indomitable Émilie Dequenne. Blu-ray Release Date: August 14th, 2012

The Whisperer in Darkness BD - Celebrated author H.P. Lovecraft's classic tale of alien horror bursts onto the screen in the style of the classic horror films of the 1930s. Professor Albert Wilmarth investigates legends of strange creatures in the remote hills of Vermont. His inquiry reveals a terrifying glimpse of the truth that lurks behind the legends. Filmed in the style of the classic 1930s films such as Frankenstein and King Kong, The Whisperer in Darkness is a thrilling adventure of supernatural horror. Blu-ray Release date: July 31st, 2012

Clue BD - Here is the murderously funny movie based on the world-famous Clue board game. And now, with this special Blu-ray version, you can see all three surprise endings! Was it Colonel Mustard in the study with a gun? Miss Scarlet in the billiard room with the rope? Or was it Wadsworth the butler? Meet all the notorious suspects and discover all their foul play things. You'll love their dastardly doings as the bodies and the laughs pile up before your eyes. Blu-ray Release date: August 7th, 2012

The Entity BD - Oscar-nominee Barbara Hershey (Black Swan, Insidious) stars as Carla Moran, a hard-working single mother until the night she is raped in her bedroom by someone -- or something -- that she cannot see. Despite skeptical psychiatrists, she is repeatedly attacked in her car, in the bath, and in front of her children. Could this be a case of hysteria, a manifestation of childhood sexual trauma, or something even more horrific? Now with a group of daring parapsychologists, Carla will attempt an unthinkable experiment: to seduce, trap and ultimately capture the depraved spectral fury that is THE ENTITY. Ron Silver (Reversal of Fortune, Ali) co-stars in this supernatural shocker directed by Sidney J. Furie (Iron Eagle, The Ipcress File) from a screenplay by Frank De Felitta (Audrey Rose), based on his bestselling novel. Blu-ray Release date: July 3rd, 2012

The Incredible Mr. Limpet BD - Hailed as one of the greatest films of all time (Ed. ???), The Incredible Mr. Limpet is a story about the wonders of imagination and the triumph of the spirit. Live-action and 2-D animation combine to tell the story of a man who longs to be a fish after he is classified by the Navy as an F4 - "too small and too weak to be a soldier." When his dream of being a fish becomes a reality, Henry uses his underwater prowess to become the Navy's strongest secret weapon. Blu-ray Release date: August 7th, 2012

Puppet Master - A quartet of psychics - Yale anthropologist Alex (Paul Le Mat, AMERICAN GRAFFITI), palm reader Dana (Irene Miracle, INFERNO), psychometrist Clarissa (Kathryn O'Reilly, JACK'S BACK), and mindreader Frank (Matt Roe, CHILD'S PLAY 2) - are summoned to a Bodega Bay hotel by horrific visions. They surmise that former associate Neil Gallagher (Jimmie F. Skaggs, GHOST TOWN) has finally tracked down the secret of Andre Toulon (William Hickey, THE RUNESTONE) a puppeteer/alchemist who was the last carrier of an ancient Egyptian secret for bestowing life onto inanimate objects. The four arrive at the seaside hotel to find out that Gallagher has committed suicide and requested of his young widow Megan (Robin Frates, THE ARRIVAL) that he not be buried until his "friends" have all assembled. Although she has made sure that Gallagher is indeed dead, Dana still senses evil in the hotel and takes measures to protect herself and the others, but Alex is more concerned with fragile Megan, and Frank and Clarissa plan to tear the place apart in the morning in search of Tulon's secret; but will they all survive the night with Tulon's deadly puppets - including the likes of Blade, The Leech Woman, The Jester, Pinhead, and The Tunneler - stalking the corridors? Barbara Crampton (CASTLE FREAK) has a "special appearance" early on. DVD Release Date: August 20th, 2012

Fallen Angels BD - Acknowledged throughout the world as one of the most important directors working today, Wong Kar-Wai (Happy Together, Ashes Of Time) has developed a signature style that employs bold, experimental use of photography, music, and editing to capture the tension of the approaching millennium. Originally intended to be a third story in his now classic Chungking Express, Fallen Angels has emerged as what some critics have come to consider his "quintessential work." Blu-ray Release Date: August 6th, 2012

Fire With Fire BD - A juvenile delinquent falls in love with a beautiful Catholic girl's school student in this fact-based adolescent melodrama... set in an Oregon forest. The two meet by accident when the troubled young man is out on a nature hike and sees the lovely girl floating in a small lake as she works on a photography assignment. The two are immediately drawn to each other, but neither of their schools encourages contact with the opposite sex and when their relationship is discovered there is trouble all around, forcing the young lovers to flee. The question then remains: will they be able to evade the law and other authorities long enough to find happiness. Blu-ray Release date: July 31st, 2012

The Dead Want Women - The world s biggest female silent movie star, Rose Pettigrew, goes on a killing spree when she loses her studio contract, murdering her friends and co-stars - Tubby Fitzgerald, the comedian, Erik Burke, the horror icon and Sonny Barnes (Eric Roberts), the cowboy - before taking her own life. Rose's mansion has stood empty for decades, but when two realtors Reese (Jessica Morris) and Dani (Ariana Madix) finally buy the house to remodel and sell it, they discover that there are more than skeletons in the closets. Haunted by the ghosts of a time long ago, the girls quickly find that they have been cast in a nightmare that will never end. Get ready for your close-up and its "lights... Camera... DIE!!!" DVD Release Date: July 30th, 2012

The Bunny Game - Banned in the UK and partially inspired by a real-life experience of star Rodleen Getsic, THE BUNNY GAME is an unflinching descent into torment and madness. Junkie hooker Sylvia Grey (Gestic in a brave, award-winning performance) turns the wrong trick in demented trucker JR (Jeff Renfro). After knocking her out cold and taking her to a desolate place where no one can hear her cries, JR subjects Sylvia to a series of increasingly twisted, sadistic "games". But will she survive the ultimate test when she wakes up with her head sealed in a white leather bunny mask? Adam Rehmeier directs with a fearless eye, pushing the boundaries of on-screen mayhem to the extreme. Controversy has surrounded THE BUNNY GAME since it premiered to festival audiences around the world by delivering a terrifying experience that once seen is impossible to forget. DVD Release Date: July 31st, 2012

True Story of a Woman in Jail; Continues - In this shocking sequel to TRUE STORY OF A WOMAN IN JAIL: SEX HELL, Mayumi (the tough inmate from the first film) emerges from solitary confinement to find an all-new gang of bullies picking on a meek, young female prisoner. Mayumi is now a much harder soul who takes no attitude from anyone, and she turns savage when the poor girl is enslaved by Yakuza! No one is safe as Mayumi takes down the entire jail in a sudden act of violent carnage. Nikkatsu turns the women-in-prison genre on its head yet again with TRUE STORY OF A WOMAN IN JAIL: CONTINUES. If you thought the first film was brutal, wait till you see what's in store here! Bath house attacks, lesbian sex scenes, rapist prison guards, violent abortions and even a transgender inmate add to the exploitation fun! Bonus features include Liner Notes from Jasper Sharp. DVD Release Date: July 10th, 2012

River of No Return BD - Director Otto Preminger's only western, River of No Return is set in Canada during the 19th century Gold Rush. Farmer Matt Calder (Robert Mitchum) is released from prison after serving a sentence for shooting a man in the back to protect a friend. He arrives in a small town to retrieve his young son, Mark (Tommy Rettig), who has befriended a sultry saloon singer, Kay (Marilyn Monroe). Matt is also friendly with Kay, and thanks her profusely for looking after Mark, but distrusts her paramour, Harry Weston (Rory Calhoun)- a gambler with the morals of an alley cat. Matt and Mark return to their rural homestead, but soon glimpse Kay and Harry on a sinking raft, apparently en route to make good on a gold claim; Matt rescues the two of them, but doesn't count on Harry doing an about face, beating him up, and stealing his horse and gun; Kay stays behind to look after Matt. Blu-ray Release date: July 31st, 2012

Rumble Fish BD - In this second of Francis Ford Coppola's back-to-back screen adaptations of novels by S. E. Hinton, the grand romanticism of The Outsiders was flipped to create an expressionist, monochrome vision of youthful passion and melancholy, and became one of Coppola's most personal and dazzling works. Against a run-down, industrial Tulsa, Oklahoma, Coppola presents a vivid portrait of troubled teenage gang leader Rusty James (Matt Dillon) as he struggles with cohorts, rival gangs, his frustrated girlfriend Patty (Diane Lane), his estranged father (Dennis Hopper), and the return of his idolised older brother The Motorcycle Boy (Mickey Rourke). An audacious depiction of gang violence, dead-end lives, and the ties that bind, Rumble Fish remains a cult favourite and features magnificent cinematography by Stephen H. Burum, a Golden Globe-winning score by Stewart Copeland, and a remarkable cast that also includes Nicolas Cage, Chris Penn, Tom Waits, and Laurence Fishburne. Blu-ray Release date: August 27th, 2012
