ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): This week I was keen on both Cohen's Blu-ray - Two Films by Douglas Sirk Double Feature. The period Noir Lured and the adventurous A Scandal in Paris - both with George Sanders have been restored and provide a strong Blu-ray presentations. I also found value in the psychological thriller Private Property - thought lost and now on Blu-ray via a 4K restoration from CineliciousPics. It's gratifying to see that Arrow's Blu-ray of Alfred Hitchcock's Jamaica Inn advances (marginally) beyond the original Blu-ray and The Quiet Man (Olive Signature) equals the a/v of the stellar Masters of Cinema Blu-ray. Speaking of which it is also great to see MoC's advancement in their Blu-ray of Twilight's Last Gleaming over the older Olive edition. More improvement with The Night of the Grizzly (Olive Signature) over the, flawed, original Blu-ray. I may be alone but I thought Wrecked, on Blu-ray from MPI, was very engaging. A much better film that critically panned. Being Halloween! I reviewed a few horror films this week that have been sitting on my Blu-ray shelf - The Conjuring shedding some light on a famous pair of paranormal investigators and one of their most difficult cases! The Warner Blu-ray is excellent. I also found the sci-fi horror Dark Skies appealing as well as Insidious - leaning to the haunting/exorcism vein of the genre. Twilight Time bring us two Charles Bronson films to Blu-ray - Murphy's Law is your standard framed cop seeking to prove his innocence but From Noon to Three is a more unique romance/western that deserves an audience. Al Pacino's racing movie - Bobby Deerfield, also on Twilight Time Blu-ray, has fewer positives than one would hope and the 80's, lean, direct-to-video style exploitation genre with Murder Weapon / Deadly Embrace on a double-bill Blu-ray package and the mock-horror Nightmare Sisters - all with Linnea Quigley appeal to a nostalgic niche. Eric reviewed some DVDs this week - The Apostate is an absurdist comedy production out of Spain, France and Uruguay. The Kind Words is another comedy - from Israel/Canada. The Justice Game is a late 80's TV series about criminal lawyers. The Hours Till Daylight is a 2015 horror-thriller as is House of the Witchdoctor. Lastly we have a French, historical, mini-series entitled Resistance.

"After all, crime is only…a left-handed form of human endeavor.” - The Asphalt Jungle

Have a peaceful, loving, week!


Lured BD - Early Sirk serial killer thriller set in London, with a brassy Ball as an American gal enlisted by Scotland Yard to trap the culprit. As they frequently do in the movies, the serial killer meets his victims through the personal columns and sends gloating announcements to the police in verse form, just before he commits a murder. Nice of him to meet them half way and provide a tangible paper trail. As this is a studio-bound London somewhere in California, there are no prizes for guessing who plays the supporting Brits: Karloff, Hardwicke, Napier and Zucco - a nice brace of red herrings. Blu-ray Release date: September 27th, 2016

A Scandal in Paris BD - From the memoirs of François Eugène Vidocq, the elegant thief turned chief of police of all Paris, comes this rediscovered classic of melodrama and romance. George Sanders is at his debonair best as we see him climb from clever criminal through the ranks of French society in the early 1800's, with seemingly nothing to stop him from the biggest heist of his career ... except, perhaps, the charms of a young lady. Blu-ray Release date: September 27th, 2016

Private Property BD - An unusual psychological drama for its time, Private Property by director Leslie Stevens revolves around a different kind of triangle. Ann (Kate Manx) is a frustrated housewife whose complaint is almost universal: her husband takes her for granted. Duke (Corey Allen) is a petty thug with a conspicuous absence of morality, and Boots (Warren Oates) is his virginal friend, an implied homosexual. Most of the 79-minute running time is taken up with Duke planning how to snare the appealing housewife for a one-time sexual encounter with Boots. What Duke cannot plan are the effects this will have on the very people he is trying to manipulate, and tragedy results. Blu-ray Release date: November 8th, 2016

Murder Weapon / Deadly Embrace BD - Murder Weapon - Two daughters of mobsters get out of the sanitarium after having killed a boyfriend in the shower, supposedly cured and on the right track. They hold a party and invite all their old boyfriends, making all of them think there is still hope for a relationship. Then the boyfriends start disappearing one by one. Deadly Embrace - A beautiful but horny and neglected Beverly Hills wife hires a hot young stud as a gardener. It eventually gets through to her husband that some hanky-panky may possibly be going on, and he begins to spy on her. Complications, and murder, ensue. Blu-ray Release date: October 25th, 2016

Nightmare Sisters BD - Three plain looking sorority sisters (Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, and Michelle Bauer) decide to host a séance and invite their nerdy boyfriends to enjoy the fun. But when Omar (Dukey Flyswatter), a mystical shaman, suddenly appears in their crystal ball and tricks the girls into touching him, they're suddenly transformed into ravishing succubi, determined to suck more than just souls. Will the guys be able to stop the madness before it's too late? Blu-ray Release date: October 25th, 2016

Wrecked BD - From there, Canadian director Michael Greenspan pulls back the camera only in small and gradual degrees, shining just the tiniest shards of light into the predicament, letting it unfold in intriguing increments. The eye belongs to a battered face that we see, with a shock, only when its owner does - when Brody's unnamed Man examines himself in the rear-view mirror. Yes, he's trapped in the passenger seat of a wrecked car, an early-model sedan that's lying in a woody thicket at the bottom of a steep cliff. His right leg is broken, the door by his side is jammed, rain is falling, and night too. Blu-ray Release date: August 30th, 2011

The Night of the Grizzly (Olive Signature) BD - A great western adventure! Big Jim Cole (Clint Walker) inherits land in Wyoming and trades his dangerous lawman's life for the comparatively cushy existence of a rancher. But he barely gets his family settled when new dangers plague them. There's a treacherous grizzly bear on a murderous rampage, angry neighbors who covet his property and an outlaw he once sent to prison is back for revenge. The stellar cast includes western legends, Jack Elam, Keenan Wynn, Leo Gordon and TV's Tarzan, Ron Ely. Olive Signature Blu-ray Release date: October 25th, 2016

The Quiet Man (Olive Signature) BD - John Ford's The Quiet Man celebrates one of Hollywood's most romantic and enduring epics. The first American feature to be filmed in Ireland's picturesque countryside. Ford richly imbued this masterpiece with his love of Ireland and its people. Sean Thornton (John Wayne) in an American boxer who swears off fighting after he accidentally kills an opponent in the ring. Returning to the Irish town of his youth, he purchases the home of his birth and finds happiness when he falls in love with the fiery Mary Kate (Maureen O'Hara). But her insistence that Sean conduct his courtship in a proper Irish manner with matchmaker Barry Fitzgerald along for the ride as "chaperone" is but one obstacle to their future happiness: the other is her brother (Victor McLaglen), who spitefully refuses to give his consent to their marriage, or to honor the tradition of paying a dowry to the husband. Olive Signature Blu-ray Release date: October 25th, 2016

Jamaica Inn BD - The film made a sizeable profit at the box-office because Hitchcock had developed a loyal following and reputation for entertaining pictures, and because the film had a winning cast and was based on a popular book. Nevertheless, the critics were unkind to Jamaica Inn; one called it "a singularly dull and uninspired picture-highly lackadaisical melodrama." For people expecting a Hitchcock picture, it was a letdown, and it was obvious that the director had lost his interest in the property before he completed work on it. If Hitchcock's enthusiasm isn't so apparent on the screen, the phlegmatic acting of Charles Laughton is. Arrow Blu-ray Release Date: November 7th, 2016

Bobby Deerfield BD - "Bobby Deerfield" may turn out to be the year's most cynical movie made by people who know better, including Sydney Pollack, the director, and Alvin Sargent, who wrote the screenplay. It stars Al Pacino as a self-centered, remarkably uninteresting (and uninterested) international race-car driver and Marthe Keller as his doomed, soon-to-be-bald beloved, a girl whose manic behavior is supposed to indicate a love of life but suggests rather more strongly that she's in desperate need of a Valium. Blu-ray Release date: September, 2016

Dark Skies BD - Dark Skies was a derivative yet engaging affair that hit the spot and gave me an hour and a half of genuine chills and thrills. It did right by me by following the two simple rules that usually make for a solid horror experience. Number 1: Introduce me to compelling characters and relationships that I can care about. This one nailed that angle! I fell in love with the family unit here, related to a lot of what they were going through, thought the acting by all was on the money, hence I cared about their fate big time. Blu-ray Release date: May 28th, 2013

The Conjuring BD - In 1970, paranormal investigators and demonologists Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) and Ed (Patrick Wilson) Warren are summoned to the home of Carolyn (Lili Taylor) and Roger (Ron Livingston) Perron. The Perrons and their five daughters have recently moved into a secluded farmhouse, where a supernatural presence has made itself known. Though the manifestations are relatively benign at first, events soon escalate in horrifying fashion, especially after the Warrens discover the house's macabre history. Blu-ray Release date: October 23rd, 2013

Insidious BD - It's a simple story about a young family--Josh (Patrick Wilson) and Renai (Rose Byrne) and their three small children--settling into a new home. Again following classical form, there's a presence in the house that either doesn't want them there, or needs them to stay for the evilest possible reasons. When 8-year-old Dalton (Ty Simpkins) falls into an unexplained coma after a spooky encounter in the attic, Renai starts seeing the above-mentioned figures lurking around the house, sometimes none too subtly. Blu-ray Release date: July 12th, 2011

Murphy's Law BD - Years ago, police detective Jack Murphy (Charles Bronson) put murderer Joan Freeman (Carrie Snodgress) behind bars. But, when Freeman is released, she wreaks havoc upon Murphy's life. Freeman kills his ex-wife and other police officers, framing Murphy for her crimes. After he's arrested, the police handcuff Murphy to a thief, Arabella McGee (Kathleen Wilhoite). Still attached to Arabella, Murphy breaks out of jail, and the duo work together to find the real killer. Blu-ray Release date: September, 2016

Twilight's Last Gleaming BD - Nuclear missiles raise their warheads, but this time the paranoia is inward, and it's American vs American as Lancaster's renegade Air Force General captures a Montana missile base in order to 'blackmail' the President into revealing the shameful secrets of former administrations. The plea for 'open' government makes this in many ways the first film of the Carter administration. On reflection, the script is often contrived and the acting less than dynamic. But praise to Aldrich for his no-nonsense direction, which fashions the material into a fairly riveting computer hardware thriller. Blu-ray Release date: October 31st, 2016

From Noon to Three BD - Bronson plays Graham Dorsey, a drifter outlaw who has a brief liaison with Amanda Starbuck (Ireland), and whom she later transforms after his "death" into an outlaw legend. Amanda builds a giant commercial empire based on her fictional stories about the now-infamous "Graham Dorsey," and his name is forever emblazoned on the history of the Old West. When Bronson turns up very much alive, however, no one, not even Amanda, recognizes him or will believe his protestations that he is Dorsey. He ends up in an insane asylum, where the doctors just nod and smile at his delusions of having been a great gunfighter. Blu-ray Release date: September, 2016

The Apostate - In this gently absurdist comedy, Gonzalo Tamayo finds himself navigating the baffling bureaucracy of the Catholic Church when he attempts to formally renounce his faith. Tomayo soon discovers that leaving the church is much easier said than done. This coming-of-age satire is told with a gentle nod to the Cohen Brothers' sensibility. The Apostate touches meaningfully on the crisis within the Catholic Church; a crisis that centers on the conflict between tradition and modernity. DVD Release Date: October 25th, 2016

The Kind Words - This quirky and wry comedy follows three Jewish Israeli siblings Dorona and brothers Netanel and Shai who, in the wake of their mother's death, learn the man who raised them is not their biological dad. The revelation sends them on a road trip from Israel across France to discover the truth about their real father. The sixth feature from writer-director Shemi Zarhin explores an unraveling family secret and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery that follows. DVD Release Date: November 1st, 2016

The Justice Game - Having made a major success of his career in America, criminal lawyer Dominic Rossi returns home to his Glasgow roots, investigating both an elderly man killed at a bus stop and defending a man accused of murder sees Rossi discovering the shady hand of big business involved, digging further he realises that Tim Forsythe is behind things, Forsythe will stop at nothing to make sure Rossi doesn t reveal too much. DVD Release Date: October 10th, 2016

The Hours Till Daylight - The Vasquez family have been tormented by an evil entity for generations. Now that Marco Vasquez is about to start a family of his own, the paranormal activity has intensified. Marco seeks help from a man named Luis Ortiz--The Curandero--an indigenous shaman who serves the drug cartel. Ortiz gives Marco a scroll with instructions for a dangerous self-exorcism and he will have only until daylight to defeat the malevolent spirit. DVD Release Date: March 15th, 2015

House of the Witchdoctor - Evil wreaks pure havoc and bloody murder upon Leslie Van Hooten, a beautiful young girl, and her unsuspecting fellow grad students as they make their way to her family's extravagant yet isolated estate. Peter (Bill Mosley) and Irene Van Hooten (Leslie Easterbrook), the young girl's mother and father, leave the group alone for the weekend, so that she may mourn the anniversary of her boyfriend's shocking murder. But the peaceful weekend soon turns to hell when they find themselves being savagely terrorized by Cliff Rifton (Allan Kayser), a crazed and recently released career criminal, and Buzz Schenk, his drug addict sidekick, whom are hell bent on raging a torturous killing spree. DVD Release Date: September 16th, 2014

Resistance - Paris, 1940. Lili (Pauline Burlet, La Vie en Rose), outraged by the injustices of the Nazi occupation, and a group of like-minded souls band together to fight the Germans and their French collaborators, all the while producing the underground newspaper Resistance for which they will go to dangerous lengths to illegally distribute. While the clandestine struggle extends to the whole of France, the young freedom fighters multiply, setting up networks of resistance that will ultimately lead to the liberation of Paris in August 1944.
