ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): To be less predictable I think my pick of the week will be X-Men First Class - an engrossing rehash of the mutant super-hero evolution fable looking and sounding super on Blu-ray. But easily the biggest upgrade from DVD goes to Blue Underground's The 10th Victim - a wonderful advancement on the satirical Sci-fi/Pop extravaganza. Altman's dreamlike masterpiece 3 Women impacts to another level in 1080P - as does Peckinpah's exhaustingly intense Straw Dogs - now available in Blu-ray. De Palma's evocative Dressed to Kill gets the bump and remains an entertaining and steamy thriller. The same director's Scarface has imperfections in the Blu-ray transfer but is still aptly described as a 'poetic exercise in excess'. The Coen's creative juices seemed to be at a zenith in O' Brother Where Art Thou? - a joyful and impressive film that gets the call to hi-def. Wes Craven's The Hills Have Eyes is iconic for low budget 70's horror flicks and the Blu-ray transfer is rife with grain and texture. Floating between fiction and surrealistic horror is Clive Barker's Hellraiser that gets a lackluster boost to Blu-ray. DVD has MoC's edition of John Ford's mighty The Iron Horse with some valuable new supplements. Gregory has covered The Breaking Point from 1950 - the most faithful adaption of Ernest Hemingway’s To Have and Have Not. Eric has completed a valuable comparison with The Man With the Severed Head as well as two new films of his genre ilk - The Echo Game and Big Foot-ish Savage. I guess the Summer is officially over :(. Have a great week!


O' Brother Where Art Thou? BD - In Joel and Ethan Coen's joyous musical comedy O Brother, Where Art Thou?, the endless parlor game of "Name That Allusion" starts with the title, a reference to Preston Sturges' 1942 classic Sullivan's Travels. In that film, a popular director of escapist Hollywood fare announces his plans to make an earnest American epic, "a true canvas of the suffering of humanity." To research the project, he dresses up like a hobo and tries to blend in with the great unwashed, finding about as much success as yuppie Albert Brooks does "touching Indians" in Lost In America. Blu-ray Release Date: September 13th, 2011

The Hills Have Eyes BD - The Carter family are driving through the desert in a station wagon and Winnebego in search of a silver mine. Fred (John Steadman, FADE TO BLACK), the old-timer that runs the gas station, cryptically tries to warn them off venturing further into the desert, but they proceed and wind up stranded in the middle of nowhere. Their first indication that they might not be alone comes when son Bobby (Robert Houston, 1941) searches for one of their runaway dogs in the hills and finds it mutilated.
Blu-ray Release Date: September 6th, 2011

The Iron Horse - The 1924 blockbuster that launched John Ford into Hollywood's emerging A-list of directors, The Iron Horse is an epic mythification of the American railroad's birth: a rambunctious blend of historical drama and Western actioner, revenge story and saloon comedy, noble biopic and all-bets-off tall tale. Neighbour to the pre-presidential Abe Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois, young Davy Brandon accompanies his father westward to realise the elder's dream of a rail line bridging the ends of the continent. Years after Brandon Sr.'s murder and scalping by a two-fingered Cheyenne half-breed, the adult David (played by George O'Brien, three years before his lead role in Sunrise, here in the first of ten films he made with Ford) joins in the effort now underway to lay track and accommodate "the iron horse". MoC DVD Release Date: September 26th, 2011

Dressed to Kill BD - Fashionable Manhattan therapist Dr. Robert Elliott (Caine) faces the most terrifying moment of his life, when a psychotic killer begins attacking the women (Dickinson and Allen) in his life— with a straight razor stolen from his office. Desperate to find the murderer before anyone else is hurt, Elliott is soon drawn into a dark and disturbing world of chilling desires. And as the doctor edges closer to the terrible truth, he finds himself lost in a provocative and deadly maze of obsession, deviance and deceit— where the most harmless erotic fantasies…can become the most deadly sexual nightmares!
Blu-ray Release date: September 6th, 2011

The 10th Victim BD - It is the 21st Century, and society's lust for violence is satisfied by "The Big Hunt," an international game of legalized murder. But when the sport's two top assassins (Marcello Mastroianni and Ursula Andress) are pitted against each other, they find that love is the most dangerous game of all. As the world watches, the hunt is on. Who will become THE 10TH VICTIM? Blu-ray Release Date: September 13th, 2011

The Man With the Severed Head - Surnett (Paul Naschy, VENGEANCE OF THE ZOMBIES) and his gang are planning to make a big score at a jewelry store with the help of safecracker , but the sticky fingers of Karl (Victor Israel, HORROR EXPRESS) set off the alarm and the group flee by car. They elude a police road block, but Surnett is shot in the head. Surnett's second-in-command Henry (Olivier Mathot, CECILIA) takes charge and drags in alcoholic Dr. Ritter (Carlos Otero, LONG DAYS OF VENGEANCE) to examine Surnett. Ritter does not possess the means or the know-how to save Surnett, but he knows who does. DVD Release Date: October 10th, 2011

Hellraiser BD - Larry Cotton (Andrew Robinson, DIRTY HARRY) and his wife Julia (Claire Higgins, B. MONKEY) move into his childhood home, which has been empty for years since his mother's death. They discover signs that his ne'er-do-well brother Frank (Sean Chapman, EAT THE RICH) has been squatting there recently. Little do they know that Frank has solved a puzzle box that opens up a gateway to the world of the Cenobites, and that he has been torn apart after experiencing their extreme forms of sadomasochism.
Blu-ray Release Date: September 6th, 2011

Scarface BD - Two-bit Cuban hood Tony Montana (Pacino) lies his way into the US, where he and his friend Manny (Stephen Bauer) soon enter the world of crime. They murder a political figure for drug dealer Frank Lopez (Robert Loggia) to get their green cards and are soon on his payroll. Tony's elimination of rival Colombian drug dealers gives him a more prominent role in the organization. His duties include serving as chauffeur to Lopez's beautiful but cocaine-addicted wife, Elvira (Michelle Pfeiffer).
Blu-ray Release Date: September 6th, 2011

X-Men First Class BD - X-Men: First Class follows the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles... Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.
Blu-ray Release date: September 9th, 2011

The Echo Game - News producer April (Alisha Seaton, THE FOURTH KIND) is shocked to learn that her ex-girlfriend Rachel (Angela Landis, ALIEN ABDUCTION) - who she saw drown in the middle of the ocean years ago - has turned up recently as a murder victim until she then receives a letter written by Rachel before her death about "The Echo Project" and possible danger to April's daughter Sarah (Melissa Lee), who is actually Rachel's biological daughter. Scientist Dr. Ann Cassavettes (Judy Clement, DIMENSION) - apparently a reference to John Cassavettes' villain in Brian DePalma's THE FURY - worked with her late husband on the project, which involved gifted children. DVD Release Date: September 27th, 2011

Savage - When a fire rips through Bear Valley National Park, it displaces the local animal population, including a ferocious creature that might be Big Foot. Sheriff Owen Freemont (Tony Becker, THE HUNTERS) learns that dispatch has lost contact with one of his men after a frantic call about a bear attack. Ranger Hudson (Ron Prather, KISS OF THE TARANTULA) is trying to convince Mayor Reynolds (Don Stalling, RECKLESS KELLY) to redevelop some of the conveniently charred land into "Hunter's Heaven." DVD Release Date: September 20th, 2011

3 Women BD - In a dusty, under-populated California resort town, Pinky Rose (Sissy Spacek), a naïve and impressionable Southern waif begins her life as a nursing home attendant. There, Pinky finds her role model in fellow nurse "Thoroughly Modern" Millie Lammoreaux (Shelley Duvall), a misguided would-be sophisticate and hopeless devotee of Cosmopolitan and Woman's Day magazines. When Millie accepts Pinky into her home at the Purple Sage singles complex, Pinky's hero-worship evolves into something far stranger and more sinister than either could have anticipated. Featuring brilliant performances from Spacek and Duvall, Robert Altman's dreamlike masterpiece, 3 Women, careens from the humorous to the chilling to the surreal, resulting in one of the most unusual and compelling films of the 1970s.
Blu-ray Release Date: September 13th, 2011

Straw Dogs BD - 'A young American mathematician, David Sumner (Dustin Hoffman), and his English wife, Amy (Susan George), move to a Cornish village, seeking the quiet life. But beneath the seemingly peaceful isolation of the pastoral village lies a savagery and violence that threatens to destroy the couple, culminating in a brutal test of Sumner’s manhood and a bloody battle to the death. One of the most controversial films ever made, Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs is a harrowing and masterful investigation of masculinity and the nature of violence.'
Blu-ray Release Date: September 6th, 2011


The Breaking Point - Broke and with a family to support, charter-boat skipper Harry Morgan (John Garfield) makes a desperate gamble. For cash that will save his boat from creditors, he ferries gangsters to safety after a racing-track heist. But when you gamble, sometimes you lose. Tense and sinewy, The Breaking Point is a more faithful adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s To Have and Have Not than the earlier Bogart-Bacall classic. Garfield, one of the screen’s great anti-heroes, makes Morgan his own in a rugged portrayal etched with anguish. Director Michael Curtiz (Casablanca), who guided Garfield to instant stardom in Four Daughters, turns the action scenes into movie dynamite, but the film’s quiet final image is the one that will haunt you.
