ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): There are a lot of reviews that I, personally, didn't cover so my recommendations are limited. Imamura's Vengeance is Mine is another solid Blu-ray by the Masters of Cinema and Tarantino's tension building crime-drama Jackie Brown vastly improves its subtle qualities in 1080P. Sticking with the newer format - I rifled my way through Dexter Season Four and that Showtime series continues to offer strong entertainment value. Black Orpheus is a great film and a highly different look to the previous Criterion DVD. It sounds like Road House and Bull Durham are MPEG2 cheapos by MGM and speaking of that studio - Escape From New York didn't overly impress transfer-wise either. However, Zombieland has some merit according to Brian - as does The Crazies remake for horror fans. That 'shock' genre has another Corman Classic with the multi-directional Humanoids From the Deep - corny monster costumes, excessive gore and bare breasts to the max. On DVD I was highly impressed with fascinating The Art of the Steal documentary and, less approachable Sweetgrass. The latter is really sticking with me. I loved both. Also for non-fiction film - Gondry's The Thorn in the Heart has it's own French charm. It's obvious to see that the dual-disc MoC L'Enfance Nue really blows away the Criterion of the same Pialat film. Background to Danger has some magnificent shadowy aura with Lorre and Greenstreet as stalwart backdrops - yes - pricey, though. Eric continues to probe the alternate-side-of-the-tracks cinema with soft-porn-ish Joy and corresponding Joy and Joan and Asia extreme Marebito plus Manoel de Oliveira's Magic Mirror... Enjoy!


Dexter Season Four BD - The Showtime Original Series DEXTER is back with an all-new season, and this time America's favorite serial killer has gone from freewheeling bachelor to responsible husband and doting dad. Maintaining an average-guy facade while satisfying his need to kill has never been easy. But now, with wife and kids in tow, Dexter's got more to lose then ever, as he gets drawn into a deadly game with a killer every bit as dangerous — and conflicted — as he is. Blu-ray Release date: August 17th, 2010

Road House BD - One of those movies that helped usher out the era of action films that had plots that made any sense (and also helped reverse the direction of Patrick Swayze's career arc), Road House concerns a handsome, existential bouncer in a rinky-dink honky-tonk who owns both a degree in philosophy and a Mercedes. And that's perhaps the most believable aspect of the whole movie. Swayze stars as Dalton, "the best bouncer in the business," who runs afoul of Wesley (Ben Gazzara), the meanest SOB round these parts, by taking up with his former girlfriend, Doc (Kelly Lynch)--the only woman in town with an IQ approaching double digits, even if she had unfathomably hooked up with such a lowlife. Blu-ray Release date: June 2nd, 2009

Bull Durham BD - Everyone loves a good sports movie – baseball especially, I think. Bull Durham is unusual in that it makes no pretense to revere the game (as in the 1942 Pride of the Yankees, or Barry Levinson’s The Natural, which preceded it by just a few years.) Basically a comedy, Ron Shelton’s Bull Durham throws a breaking slider at the whole hero enchilada while at the same time it reveals some basic truths about the game and those who worship at its altar. Blu-ray Release date: August 3rd, 2010

Zombieland BD - Nerdy college student Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) has survived the plague that has turned mankind into flesh-devouring zombies because he's scared of just about everything. Gun-toting, Twinkie-loving Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) has no fears. Together, they are about to stare down their most horrifying challenge yet: each other's company. Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin co-star in this double-hitting, head-smashing comedy. Blu-ray Release date: February 2nd, 2010

Sweetgrass - For though the area of southern Montana where "Sweetgrass" is shot is a visually stunning locale, running a sheep ranch in general and caring for enormous flocks during their months of summer pasture in particular turns out to be a grueling, intensely physical existence grounded in the unforgiving rhythms of the natural world. DVD Release Date: August 3rd, 2010

The Crazies BD - In this terrifying glimpse into the “American Dream” gone wrong, an unexplainable phenomenon has taken over the citizens of Ogden Marsh. One by one the townsfolk are falling victim to an unknown toxin and are turning sadistically violent. People who days ago lived quiet, unremarkable lives are now depraved, blood-thirsty killers. While Sheriff Dutton (Timothy Olyphant) and his pregnant wife, Judy (Radha Mitchell), try to make sense of the escalating violence, the government uses deadly force to close off all access and won’t let anyone in or out – even those uninfected. In this film that Pat Jankiewicz of Fangoria calls “disturbing,” an ordinary night becomes a horrifying struggle for the few remaining survivors as they do their best to get out of town alive. Blu-ray Release date: June 29th, 2010

Hot Tub Time Machine BD - If you hop a ride in the dudely new comedy "Hot Tub Time Machine," here's what you get: A reckless celebration of casual drug abuse and meaningless sex that makes vulgar sport of women with big hair, gay men in general, disabled people, dismembering injuries, members of Poison and Mötley Crüe, deceased pop celebrities, ski-patrol douche bags, Internet geeks and, most of all, the bruised egos of middle-aged guys. Beyond that, "Hot Tub Time Machine" takes the universal human longing to reimagine and relive the past -- which has fueled artists and poets from the Lascaux cave-painters through Proust and Fitzgerald -- and reduces it to cheap, foul and thoroughly amoral humor. Don't get me wrong: These are the things that make "Hot Tub Time Machine" awesome.... Blu-ray Release date: June 29th, 2010

The Art of the Steal - Dr. Albert C. Barnes accomplished two things for which we must be grateful: He invented a treatment for VD, and he founded the Barnes Foundation in the Philadelphia suburb of Merion. The first paid for the second, so the wages of sin were invested wisely. In his imposing private structure, far from the power brokers of the city, Barnes created an oasis for serious students, who could learn from his collection without rubbing elbows with crowds of art tourists. DVD Release Date: July 27th, 2010

Joy - Purporting to be the scandalous memoirs of a pseudonymous French model Joy Laurey, JOY was the first of a series of erotic novels which was adapted to screen and later as a series of softcore cable movies; much like the THE STORY OF O, the EMMANUELLE novels and LE DECLIC comics. Joy (Claudia Udy, EDGE OF SANITY) is a fashion model with some daddy issues (having as a child accidentally seen her parents having sex). DVD Release Date: July 27, 2010

Joy and Joan - Top model Joy (former adult film actress/Jean Rollin muse Brigitte Lahaie replacing the first film's Claudia Udy) is abandoned by her lover Marc (Jean-Marc Maurel) who jets off to Thailand. Rich friend Bruce (Pierre Londiche) - quite different from his character in the first film - offers Joy the world but she just asks him to take her to Thailand. Upon arrival, Bruce presents Joy with a diamond ring, her own personal slave Millarca (Maria Isabel Lopez), and the palace of a creepy prince (Jacques Bryland) fallen on hard times. Bruce celebrates Joy's birthday by drugging her and making her unwilling the centerpiece of an orgy. DVD Release Date: July 27th, 2010

Loose Screws - When jock Steve Hardman (Lance Van Der Kolk) - in leather jacket and aviator sunglasses - gets handsy giving tennis lessons to a coed in a see-through top, future fratboy Brad Lovett (Bryan Genesse) plays strip poker with two co-eds using loaded dice, nerd Hugh G. Rection - yuk yuk - (Alan Deveau) uses his knowledge of video and electronics to look up classmates' skirts, and fat Marvin Eatmore (Jason Warren) spies on the cheerleaders, the Beaver High principal tells them that they must attend a summer school - Cockswell Academy - or they will not graduate. Naturally, this exclusive summer school is full of hot, gullible girls who fall for the quartet's attempts to get laid (including dressing up as doctors for full physicals, dressing in drag to pose as fellow coeds in the dorms, rigging up a camera in the locker room, switch the school documentary with a stag film, etc). DVD Release Date: August 10, 2010

Humanoids From the Deep BD - Something evil is happening in the sleepy fishing village of Noyo. Fishlike humanoid creatures, spawned by mutant DNA, begin rising from the ocean looking to mate with the local women. Scientist Susan Drake (Ann Turkel) along with local fisherman Jim Hill (Doug McClure, The Land That Time Forgot) seek to investigate the cause of this invasion of creatures from the ocean floor. But when the annual Salmon Festival begins, some unwanted guests are about to crash the festivities. Also starring Vic Morrow (Message From Space), Cindy Weintraub (The Prowler) and Denise Galik (Don't Answer The Phone). Blu-ray Release date: August 3rd, 2010

L'Enfance Nue - The singular French director Maurice Pialat puts his distinctive stamp on the lost-youth film with this devastating portrait of a damaged foster child. We watch as ten-year-old François (Michel Terrazon) is shuttled from one home to another, his behavior growing increasingly erratic, his bonds with his surrogate parents perennially fraught. In this, his feature debut, Pialat treats that potentially sentimental scenario with astonishing sobriety and stark realism. With its full-throttle mixture of emotionality and clear-eyed skepticism, L’enfance nue (Naked Childhood) was advance notice of one of the most masterful careers in French cinema, and remains one of Pialat’s finest works. Criterion DVD Release Date: August 17th, 2010

Jackie Brown BD - Combining an explosive mix of intense action and edgy humor with a sizzling all-star cast, director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) scores with the entertaining Jackie Brown. What do a sexy stewardess (Pam Grier), a street-tough gun runner (Samuel L. Jackson), a lonely bail bondsman (Robert Forster), a shifty ex-con (Robert De Niro), an earnest federal agent (Michael Keaton) and a stoned-out beach bunny (Bridget Fonda) have in common? They're six players on the trail of a half million dollars in cash! The only questions are... who's going to get played... and who's going to make the big score? Blu-ray Release date: September 15th, 2009

Black Orpheus BD- Winner of both the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or, Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus (Orfeu negro) brings the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to the twentieth-century madness of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. With its eye-popping photography and ravishing, epochal soundtrack, Black Orpheus was an international cultural event, and it kicked off the bossa nova craze that set hi-fis across America spinning. Blu-ray Release Date: August 17th, 2010

Escape From New York - Escape from New York is a solidly satisfying actioner. Impressively produced for $7 million, it reps director John Carpenter's biggest budget to date. In the 1997 New York City neatly turned out (mostly in St Louis) by production designer Joe Alves, Manhattan is a walled, maximum security prison inhabited by millions of felons and loonies. The president of the US has the misfortune of crash landing on the island and being taken hostage by the crazies, who demand their release in exchange for the leader. Into this cesspool is sent tough criminal Kurt Russell, who is charged with extricating the prezy within 24 hours. Blu-ray Release Date: August 3rd, 2010

The Thorn in the Heart - L'Epine dans le Coeur is a personal look at the life of Gondry family matriarch, Michel's aunt Suzette Gondry, and her relationship with her son, Jean-Yves. Michel examines Suzette's years as a school teacher and her life in rural France. During the course of filming the documentary, Michel unearths new family stories and uses his camera to explore them in a subtle and sensitive way. It had its world premiere screening in the official selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

Perversion Story - George Dumurrier (Jean Sorel, A LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN) runs a San Francisco transplant clinic and is unhappy with ailing wife Susan (Marisa Mell, DANGER: DIABOLIK). He leaves his wife with a nurse - and clear instructions NOT to mix up her medications - to go on a business trip (actually a Vegas trip with his fashion photographer mistress Jane [Elsa Martinelli, THE 10TH VICTIM]). George is called back to discover his wife dead and that he is the recipient of her life insurance policy. At a strip club, George sees a dancer Monica (also Mell) who is a dead ringer for his well... dead wife and he begins to suspect that she is indeed Susan. With the police, private detectives, and other shady types suspecting George of murder, he and Martha must seek out the truth before George ends up in the gas chamber. DVD Release Date: February 27th, 2007

Background to Danger - Maybe not up there with the best of Walsh's action pics, but still an efficient and entertaining WWII spy thriller. Raft is the American agent travelling to Turkey to prevent the country from allying itself with the Nazis, and encountering that colourful pair, Greenstreet (a Nazi) and Lorre (his Turkish opponent) en route. A bit too light to be a really good espionage drama - the genre works best when presenting a bleak world of betrayal and doubt - but Walsh keeps it moving along at a cracking pace, while the script (adapted by WR Burnett from Eric Ambler's novel) is vivid and sharp. DVD Release Date: July 13th, 2010

Magic Mirror - Luciano (Riccardo Trepa, the director's grandson) is released from prison and his cleric brother arranges for him to work for Alfreda (Leonor Silveira), a wealthy young woman who wants Luciano to accompany her on a pilgrimage to the holy sites in the Middle East (something she has done many times before) in order to have a vision of the Virgin Mary (and invite her to tea). All around her are people who encourage her mania including soliciting priests, an English professor of religion (Michel Piccoli) who suggests that the Virgin Mary was actually a wealthy woman (like Alfreda), and a forger (Luis Miguel Cintra) who offers a supernatural solution to Alfreda's ambition.

Vengeance is Mine BD - A thief, murderer, and charming lady-killer, Iwao Enokizu (Ken Ogata) is on the run from the police. Director Shohei Imamura turns this fact-based story, of the seventy-eight-day killing spree of a remorseless man from a devoutly Catholic family, into a cold, perverse, and at times diabolically funny tale of the primitive coexisting with the modern. More than just a true-crime case, Vengeance Is Mine bares mankind’s snarling id. Blu-ray Release Date: August 2nd, 2010

Taking Woodstock BD - A generation began in his backyard…From Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain) comes Taking Woodstock, the comedy inspired by the true story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin) and his family, who inadvertently played a pivotal role in making the famed Woodstock Music and Arts Festival into the happening that it was. When Elliot hears that a neighboring town has pulled the permit on a hippie music festival, he calls the producers thinking he could drum up some much-needed business for his parents' run-down motel. Three weeks later, half a million people are on their way to his neighbor’s farm in White Lake, New York, and Elliot finds himself swept up in a generation-defining experience that would change his life–and American culture–forever. Blu-ray Release date: December 15th, 2009

Kiss of Life - While her husband John (Mullan) is away doing aid work in the war-torn Balkans, back in London Helen (Dapkunaite) is trying to keep things together with their two kids and her father-in-law (Warner). Then, before her son's eyes, she's knocked over by a car. Will she survive the accident? And how long will it take John to get home? It's a little hard to pinpoint precisely why this first feature disappoints. Clearly a heartfelt, ambitious attempt to treat the theme of loss and grief, it boasts sterling work from both the dependable Mullan and Dapkunaite. But the other performances are unilluminating and the evocation of South London lends the film an aura of the earnest person's version of Notting Hill or About a Boy. As it shifts solemnly back and forth between reality and dream, past and present, London and Europe, the film gradually gets bogged down in a slightly trite conceit that evidently had more promise than potential. DVD Release Date: June 28th, 2004

Marebito - Shot on digital video in a mere eight days with his filmmaking mentor in the lead, JU-ON: THE GRUDGE director Takashi Shimizu's MAREBITO stars Shinya Tsukamoto (director of VITAL and A SNAKE OF JUNE) as Matsouka, a freelance cameraman fascinated by fear. When he captures the gory suicide of a seemingly deranged man in a subway on video, Matsouka becomes obsessed with finding out what the dead man saw (and was apparently still seeing when he killed himself) that terrified him so. Returning to the subway, he discovers an entrance to the subterranean tunnels beneath the subway which lead him further into the underground developments dating back from the war and then farther back into further developments going back into history and believes that his growing fear has allowed him to pass into the Netherworld where he runs into the dead man (who is unaware of his own gory suicide).
