ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Number one this week, I'm going to pick Sydney Pollack's unforgettable They Shoot Horses, Don't They? on Kino's impressive Blu-ray with excellent a/v, 2 commentaries and more. And despite the heavy golden-yellow, i was also very keen on their double, stacked, Blu-ray set of Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly - an iconic western celebrated in a 4K restoration for its 50th anniversary. How about Indicator in the UK - continuing to pump out greatness. Sidney Lumet's The Deadly Affair, is indeed, underrated and under-seen. The sumptuous image quality, on the Blu-ray also has an excellent commentary. Don't miss it! Vittorio De Sica's Two Women is a masterpiece and, perhaps I was too harsh on the Blu-ray video restoration, but seeing the film again looking so much better than the old DVDs makes it worth the indulgence. DVDBeaver continues to seek out rare, and lesser reviewed Giallo films. This past week we covered Blu-rays of Mario Caiano's sexy Eye in the Labyrinth from Code Red, Olive's 1080P transfer of Massimo Dallamano's A Black Veil For Lisa and 88 Films Delirium starring Serena Grandi with a separate credit for ginormous assets. It's a quirky, charismatic, exploitive genre that we love to investigate. Jack Gold's The Reckoning is a tough 1970 British drama skirting both sides of train tracks - another perfectionist Blu-ray from Indicator. Not to give less acclaim to Peter Medak's A Day in the Death of Joe Egg which is a unique and highly remarkable effort that will be impossible to forget. Available on another exceptional Indicator Blu-ray. Wow. William Friedkin's The Birthday Party is from an unusual Harold Pinter story - mysterious deep and layered - now on Blu-ray . Back to westerns; Django Kill,... If You Live Shoot is of the pasta variety on Blu-ray from 88 Films - a daring genre effort with a gang of homosexual cowboys, a priest and a half-breed bandit fighting over stolen gold. N'uff said. Custer of the West, shot in the Cinerama process, offers a stunning image on Kino's Blu-ray but the film suffer from some dubious historical content and unevenness. Tobor the Great is a simple, but lovable 50's sci-fi 'B' picture with plenty of innocence exporting nostalgia. the Kino Blu-ray has an vastly superior presentation to the old DVD and include a commentary. Joe Bullet is a historically relevant artefact that deserves archiving on Blu-ray - thanks to 88 Films. It's a cool, little, adventure that doesn't pull any punches. One Dark Night is on Blu-ray from Kino - a spooky horror outing aimed at teen audiences that stars Meg Tilly with a bit-part of Adam West to boot. The Bride From Hell is more early 70s Shaw Brothers delving into the horror genre, however the film is pretty passive with an innocence that is sometimes amusing. Film 88's bare-bone Blu-ray is unremarkable. On DVD Eric covered the Danish crime-drama TV series Dicte - Crime Reporter - Season One and Season Two, as well as Inseparables - an Argentinean remake of the French film Intouchables, as well as the gay comedy Kept Boy,

“Everyone has a choice. You can choose your own path in life. We are who we choose to be..”. - Green Goblin, from Spider-Man

Enjoy your week!


The Reckoning BD - Michael Marler (Nicol Williamson), determined to leave his criminal father and his Irish past behind him, abandoned Liverpool to pursue a more respectable career path. Now he's a wealthy businessman living in London, but his father's death draws a reluctant Michael back to his hometown. When he learns his father was killed in a fight with a young delinquent, Michael teams up with an old flame (Rachel Roberts) and a friend of his father's (Paul Rogers) to avenge the death. Blu-ray Release date: August 28th, 2017

A Day in the Death of Joe Egg BD - Playwright Peter Nichols adapted his own blackly comic 1967 Tony Award-winning play for this confrontational film version by director Peter Medak. Alan Bates and Janet Suzman play a married couple struggling to come to terms with their daughter's disability using comedy and cruelty to dispel the desperation of their situation. This uncomfortable, provocative film about marriage, children and life choices is startlingly funny as well as deeply moving. Blu-ray Release date: August 28th, 2017

Joe Bullet BD - When local soccer team The Eagles fall prey to a series of onslaughts from a mysterious gangster only a week before the championship final, the team turns to one man that can help save their chances at victory - Joe Bullet (Ken Gampu). Joe will have to battle against villainous henchmen, escape booby-trap bombs and bring his martial arts expertise to the fore in order to survive an attack from a deadly assassin. Blu-ray Release Date: September 11th, 2017

The Deadly Affair BD - John LeCarre's Call for the Dead was the basis for this gloomy, complex spy story. James Mason plays a British secret agent puzzled by the sudden suicide of Foreign Office higher-up Robert Flemyng. Mason had worked on Flemyng's security clearance himself, and can't fathom what personality quirk he might have missed. The agent suspects that the dead man's wife (Simone Signoret), a concentration camp survivor, may hold the answer to Flemyng's despair, but the Foreign Office wants Mason to drop the case. Mason hires retiring Inspector Harry Andrews to do some private detective work. What Mason and Andrews find out is more insidious than they've imagined. Blu-ray Release date: August 28th, 2017

The Bride From Hell BD - A precursor to the fabulous horror-romances of eighties Hong Kong Cinema glory, The Bride From Hell is an atmospheric foray into Chinese Ghost Story territory by the visionary Shaw Brothers studios! Yunpeng (Yang Fan) and his servant stay at a country inn one dark evening to escape potential robbers and ghosts. But Yunpeng chances into something far more dangerous! He accidentally happens upon the comely Anu (Xing Hui) naked in bed, and to make up for his rudeness he has to marry her! Blu-ray Release date: September 25th, 2017

Django Kill, If You Live Shoot BD - Tomas Milian stars as a half-breed bandit double-crossed and left for dead who rises from the grave to seek his revenge. But when his quest leads to a bizarre town called 'The Unhappy Place,' he is plunged into an odyssey of gruesome torture, graphic violence and relentless sexual depravity. This is the landmark movie that fans and critics still consider to be the strangest - and most controversial - 'Spaghetti Western' ever made. 88 Films Blu-ray Release date: September 25th, 2017

Delirium BD - Voluptuous Italian starlet Serena Grandi stars in this uneven but memorable giallo from director Lamberto (Demons) Bava as Gloria, a former centerfold model who inherits her dead husband’s sex magazine; Pussycat. One day during a photo shoot, she receives lewd phone calls from her paraplegic teenage neighbor. Gloria dismisses his calls because she feels sorry for him, but when he calls saying that one of her models just got pitchforked to death, she calls the police. It seems that there is a lunatic on the loose that has a grudge against Gloria and is intent on murdering all of her models. Blu-ray Release date: May 15th, 2017

Eye in the Labyrinth BD - ulie is a foreign girl living in Milan who has long been cared for by her psychoanalyst Luca Berti, who is also her lover. One night she has a nightmare visage of a sadistic death. In fact, the doctor has disappeared and Julie is the key to solving the mystery. During the search she meets many people with secrets that include murder, blackmail and rape. A worthy Giallo thriller by Mario Caiano (Nightmare Castle and The Real Decameron). Blu-ray Release date: March 21st, 2017

Two Women (De Sica) BD - American cinema never learned how to exploit Loren's voluptuously earthy appeal, as revealed here in her Oscar-winning performance - the only actress to win this award for a foreign-language film. The performance and the powerful narrative made the film one of the few foreign pictures to enjoy real success in the USA. It told the story, set in Italy in 1943, of a widowed mother and her teenage daughter surviving enemy attack, deprivation and rape by Allied Moroccan soldiers. The film is actually a rather old-fashioned melodramatic star vehicle, meant originally for Magnani as Loren's mother, but Magnani flatly refused. Blu-ray Release Date: October 24th, 2017

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly BD - For three men the Civil War wasn't hell... it was practice! By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential western ever made, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a classic actioner shot through with a volatile mix of myth and realism. Screen legend Clint Eastwood returns as "The Man with No Name," this time teaming with two gunslingers to pursue a cache of $200,000 and letting no one, not even warring factions in a civil war, stand in their way. From sun-drenched panoramas to bold hard close-ups, exceptional camerawork captures the beauty and cruelty of the barren landscape and the hardened characters who stride unwaveringly through it. Blu-ray Release Date: August 22nd, 2017

A Black Veil For Lisa BD - When a narcotics detective finds out that his beautiful wife (who is an ex-criminal) is cheating on him, he hires a professional hitman to bump her off. However, things don't go quite according to plan. The detective was involved in investigating a string of drug-related murders, and when he finally catches the killer Max Lindt, instead of arresting him, he surprises him by asking him to murder his unfaithful wife. Instead of killing the woman, the hitman ends up sleeping with her, and they begin an affair. Blu-ray Release date: October 27th, 2015

Custer of the West BD - Opening with a montage depicting its subject's Civil War exploits, Custer of the West carries us across four years of fighting in less than four minutes of screen time. The Civil War ended, George Armstrong Custer (Robert Shaw) longs for action and to hold onto his rank of general, so General Phil Sheridan (Lawrence Tierney) sends him West, admitting that there will be no nobility to his cause there -- the government and the people want the land, and that means getting the Indians off of it by any means necessary. Blu-ray Release date: September 12th, 2017

The Birthday Party BD - The movie, like the play, forces us to accept a horror story that has no reasonable antecedents: Stanley (Robert Shaw) is the only guest at a rundown, seaside boarding house owned by Meg (Dandy Nichols) and Petey (Moultrie Kelsall). Into their lives of placid desperation come two strangers, Goldberg (Sydney Tafler), tackily urbane and garrulous, and McCann (Pattrick Magee), a faithful goon. They have been sent by someone named Monty and "the organization" to retrieve Stanley. Blu-ray Release date: September 5th, 2017

They Shoot Horses, Don't They? BD - A total of nine Academy Award nominations went to this wildly acclaimed, allegorical drama set amongst the contestants in a marathon dance contest during the Great Depression. Gig Young stars as Rocky, the obnoxious emcee for a dance marathon that offers prize money of $1,500, a small fortune during hard economic times that brings out the worst in several participants. Among them are Gloria Beatty (Jane Fonda), a malcontent who's partnered with a drifter, Robert Syverton (Michael Sarrazin); a pregnant farm girl (Bonnie Bedelia) and her husband (Bruce Dern); a sailor (Red Buttons); and an aspiring actress (Susannah York). As the marathon winds into a staggering second month, suspicion, doubt and insecurity rages among the competitors and even the decaying and increasingly manipulative Rocky, leading to a shocking crime. Blu-ray Release date: September 5th, 2017

Tobor the Great BD - To avoid the life-threatening dangers of manned space exploration, Professor Nordstrom (Taylor Holmes, Quicksand) creates a highly advanced form of artificial intelligence capable of piloting a starship to other worlds. In order to transmit alien data, the extraordinary robot is infused with a powerful telepathic device that enables it to instantly read and even feel emotions. Danger strikes when a sinister band of covert agents kidnaps Gadge (Billy Chapin, The Night of the Hunter), the professor's 10-year-old grandson. But Gadge has a powerful ally, for he has developed a psychic, emotional bond with his grandfather's robot, Tobor. Blu-ray Release Date: September 12th, 2017

One Dark Night BD - In this spooky horror outing aimed at teen audiences, the innocent new girl in town tries to become friends with a rough but cool crowd. They are all pretty mean, especially the young woman who is mad that the girl stole her boyfriend, and they decide that the girl must survive an ordeal before they let her join their gang. They send her to a funeral home to spend the night by herself. Unfortunately, none of them realize that it is inhabited by a murderous ghost just waiting to suck the life out of all of them. Blu-ray Release date: August 15th, 2017
