ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): In my summation of that review I state that America Lost and Found: The BBS Story is 'the' package of the entire year - I mean it, but this week still overflowed with cinephile greatness from the reconstructed Fritz Lang masterpiece Metropolis to Disney’s iconic animated visual and aural feast - Fantasia. How can I forget to include one of my favorite all-time films - Bresson's A Man Escaped, now in 1080P glory and a film I never tire of re-watching; the 1935 Mutiny on the Bounty. I know I can watch The Twilight Zone Season 2 a-n-y-t-i-m-e - the charm is always there. That should be enough but The Milk of Sorrow on DVD deserves mention. Also Bogart's The Left Hand of God and modest transfer of the noir The Blue Dahlia. There are a few TV series that are always worth the effort, and Perry Mason is one of them. Gregory has me keen to see -30- and Eric has me curious about The Mafu Cage. It sounds like I enjoyed National Treasure a little more than Leonard. I also thought Enchanted was pretty cute (but I have a crush on Amy Adams). Fans of Tinto Brass might indulge in the improvement of the Blu-ray of Salon Kitty. For an over-the-top ride, avec zombies, try La Horde. The intent was there with RoboGeisha but I suggest giving it a pass. Hey, we're getting into fireplace season... and I'm about to relax with the hypnotic warmth of the flame. Peace.


America Lost and Found: The BBS Story BD - Fueled by money from their invention of the superstar TV pop group the Monkees, they set off on a film-industry journey that would lead them to form BBS Productions, a company that was also a community. The innovative films produced by this team between 1968 and 1972 are collected in this box set—works that now range from the iconic (Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Last Picture Show) to the acclaimed (The King of Marvin Gardens) to the obscure (Head; Drive, He Said; A Safe Place), all created within the studio system but lifted right out of the countercultural id. Blu-ray Release date: November 23rd, 2010

Metropolis BD - A 'Holy Grail' among film finds, Metropolis is presented here in a newly reconstructed and restored version, as lavish and spectacular as ever thanks to the painstaking archival work of the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung and the discovery of 25 minutes of footage previously thought lost to the world. Lang's enduring epic can finally be seen for the first time in 83 years as the director originally intended, and as seen by German cinema-goers in 1927. Blu-ray Release Date: November 22nd, 2010

Salon Kitty BD - Captain Wallenberg (Helmut Berger, CONVERSATION PIECE) is assigned the task of training twenty German women for employment in the brothel of Madam Kitty (Ingrid Thulin, WILD STRAWBERRIES). Unbeknown to her, Wallenberg has had her club fitted with listening devices to keep tabs on the loyalties of Nazi soldiers (but Wallenberg also uses it for some blackmail on the side). One of the girls, Margheritia (Teresa Ann Savoy, CALIGULA) falls for Hans (Bekim Fehmiu, THE EXECUTIONER), a soldier who plans to defect. When Margherita learns that Wallenberg overheard Hans' plans and had him murdered, she plots revenge with the help Kitty's help. Blu-ray Release Date: November 23rd, 2010

Four in a Jeep - Winner of the 1st Berlin International Film Festival - Golden Bear (Drama). Nominated at the 1951 Cannes Film Festival - Palme d'Or! The Soviet Union authorities, who felt insulted by the way the USSR is depicted in the story, protested against the release of the film in April 1951. This was the first film of, actor, Ralph Meeker. DVD Release Date: October 26th, 2010

The Milk of Sorrow - Fausta (Magaly Solier) suffers from “The Milk of Sorrow”, an illness transmitted through mother’s milk by women who’ve been raped during Peru’s Civil Wars. Stricken with the fear that she’s contracted the illness from her mother's breast milk -- Fausta goes to extreme lengths to protect her own sexuality and safety. After her mother’s sudden death, she finds herself compelled to embark on a frightening journey for re-awakening, freedom and wholeness. The Hollywood Reporter wrote, “Gorgeously shot with a plethora of haunting images”. Claudia Llosa directs this Academy Award® Nominee for Best Foreign Film. Winner of the Golden Berlin Bear Award (Best Film) and the FIPRESCI Prize at the 59th Annual Berlin Film Festival. DVD Release Date: December 7th, 2010

RoboGeisha BD - The concept of a robotic geisha is unquestionably a stroke of genius. Clearly, there has always been something other worldly and automaton-like about this unique breed of Japanese woman – and this is aside from their sinister, passively servile relations with men. This idea, paired with the acclaimed director of similarly-themed comedy horror The Machine Girl, seems like a marriage made in gonzo Japanarama heaven. Blu-ray Release date: November 16th, 2010

Perry Mason - Season Five Volume 2 - Perry Mason is an attorney who specializes in defending seemingly indefensible cases. With the aid of his secretary Della Street and investigator Paul Drake, he often finds that by digging deep, startling facts can be revealed. Often relying on his outstanding courtroom skills, he often tricks or traps people into unwittingly admitting their guilt. DVD Release Date: November 16th, 2010

Escape From Zahrain - In a strife-torn Arab state, fanatical loyalists of a nationalist leader (Yul Brynner) attack a police van transporting him to prison and aid his escape into the deadly Arabian Desert. Escaping with him are fellow death row prisoners Huston (Jack Warden), a swashbuckling American who had embezzled a fortune from the Zahrain Oil Company and Tahar (Anthony Caruso), a sadistic maniac. Sal Mineo (Rebel Without a Cause) plays a student who helps the fugitives flee the pursuant police in a stolen ambulance. DVD Release Date: December 7th, 2010

Fantasia BD - Walt Disney’s timeless masterpiece is an extravaganza of sight and sound, now brilliantly presented in high definition with an all-new digital restoration. With Blu-ray you can finally experience Fantasia the way Walt envisioned. Plus, an exploration of the new Disney Family Museum and dynamic bonus features allow generations of moviegoers to enjoy this musical masterpiece like never before. No family’s Disney Blu-ray collection is complete without Fantasia so see the music come to life, hear the pictures burst into song and experience the excitement that is Fantasia over and over again through the magic of Blu-ray. Blu-ray Release date: November 8th, 2010

Mutiny on the Bounty BD - Expertly crafted and brilliantly acted, MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY is one of the most durable and engrossing adventure films ever made. For the first and only time in motion-picture history, three actors from the same film--Gable, Laughton, and Tone--were nominated for Oscars in the Best Actor division. Lloyd's rich direction captures the exotic South Sea island of Tahiti and the rigors of the hardscrabble voyage and gives the cast its full head (Digges is especially good). Gable, in splendid form, was originally afraid of wearing breeches and a small ponytail, and he also thought his American accent would stand out too much. (If anything, it works by contributing to a certain xenophobia in his struggles against the unhandsome and genuinely British Laughton.) Blu-ray Release date: November 16th, 2010

Brotherhood - Though Nicolo Donato's impressive debut, "Brotherhood," inevitably will be called "the gay neo-Nazi movie," such a reductive description does the film a disservice. While the film does track the unlikely sexual relationship between two members of a violent racist organization, it's Donato's assured direction, plus the superb thesping on display, that sets "Brotherhood" above what could have been either fetishistic or far-fetched. The winner of Rome's top prize, the pic could see strong Euro and bicoastal arthouse play, though some auds may be uncomfortable with the theme and the palpable passion. DVD Release Date: November 16th, 2010

The Left Hand of God - While Bogart had his best-known classics - The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca - behind him, his consistently healthy career had undergone a late bloom in the 1950s, with films such as 1951's The African Queen (for which he won the Best Actor Oscar) and the aforementioned Caine Mutiny. With the latter film, meanwhile, Dmytryk had been able to pull himself out of the controversy that had mired his career since he was blacklisted by HUAC in 1947 as one of the Hollywood Ten. He spent time in prison, but testified again in 1951, an act that adversely affected the lives of several industry colleagues. He never escaped the shadow of this act, but was able to consolidate his position as a Hollywood director again. DVD Release Date: October 18th, 2010

The Blue Dahlia - Ladd's returning war veteran stalks stoically down those mean streets once more in search of the killer of his wife (Dowling), a faithless floozie undeserving of his concern. Raymond Chandler's script never quite recovers from the Navy Department's objection to having Ladd's war-wounded buddy Bendix, wandering around with a steel plate in his head and intermittent amnesia, turn out to have done the killing (out of outraged loyalty to his friend, then blanking it out in his memory). The plot rewrite involves one or two arbitrary connections and a much less satisfactory conclusion. A fine hardboiled thriller for all that, with excellent dialogue and performances, and much more apt direction from Marshall than one might expect. Koch media DVD Release Date: May 9th, 2008

National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets BD - Book of Secrets begins a couple years after the first movie left off. Ben (Nicholas Cage) and Abigail (Diane Kruger) have broken up (she gets the house; he gets the end tables.) Riley (Justin Bartha) has just published his book about finding the treasure from their first adventure, but somehow isn’t getting the credit he desires. Ben and his father (Jon Voigt) are on a speaking tour. Just when the Gates family name is no longer associated with crackpots along comes Mitch Wilkinson (Ed Harris) who has his own issues with who did what to whom. Blu-ray Release dates: May 20th, 2008, February 8th, 2011

The Twilight Zone Season 2 BD - All 29 episodes of the second season of Rod Serling’s classic, groundbreaking series, now presented in pristine high-definition for the first time ever, along with hours of new and exclusive bonus features not available anywhere else! New, Blu-ray exclusive features: new commentaries, featuring The Twilight Zone Companion author Marc Scott Zicree, author and film historian Gary Gerani (Fantastic Television), author and music historian Steven C. Smith (A Heart at Fire's Center: The Life and Music of Bernard Herrmann), music historians John Morgan and William T. Stromberg, writer/producer David Simkins (Lois and Clark, Dark Angel), writer Mark Fergus (Children of Men, Iron Man), actor William Reynolds and director Ted Post Interviews with actors Dana Dillaway, Suzanne Lloyd, Beverly Garland and Ron Masak Tales of Tomorrow episode "What You Need" Part 2 of the 1978 vintage audio interview with Director of Photography George T. Clemens. Blu-ray Release date: November 16th, 2010

Enchanted BD - Life is idyllic in the fairytale world where conflict is minimal and breaking into song solves every problem, but what happens when a princess from the fairy world gets magically transported into the real world? Enchanted begins in the animated fairytale world of Andalasia where Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) is destined to marry Prince Edward (James Marsden) and live happily ever after. Problem is, Edward's step-mother Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) doesn't want to give up the throne and will do anything to get Giselle out of Edward's life. Queen Narissa's solution is to push Giselle into a well that magically lands Giselle smack in the middle of the real world--the center of Time Square in New York City, to be exact. Blu-ray Release date: March 18th, 2008 / February 8th, 2011

Bodyguards and Assassins BD - The year is 1906. While San Francisco endured one of the most celebrated earthquakes of modern times, China was facing one of its own: the rise of Sun Yat Sun and the rebellion he fomented against hundreds of years of dynastic rule. The setting of Bodyguards and Assassins (a title that inadvertently and unhappily suggests something in the way of an Nintendo fantasy role playing game) is Hong Kong. The players are ordinary people caught up on one side or the other of revolution. Blu-ray Release date: May 11th, 2010

National Treasure BD - Like a Hardy Boys mystery on steroids, National Treasure offers popcorn thrills and enough boyish charm to overcome its rampant silliness. Although it was roundly criticized as a poor man's rip-off of Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Da Vinci Code, it's entertaining on its own ludicrous terms, and Nicolas Cage proves once again that one actor's infectious enthusiasm can compensate for a multitude of movie sins. The contrived plot involves Cage's present-day quest for the ancient treasure of the Knights Templar, kept secret through the ages by Freemasons past and present. Finding the treasure requires the theft of the Declaration of Independence (there are crucial treasure clues on the back, of course!), so you can add "caper comedy" to this Jerry Bruckheimer production's multi-genre appeal. Blu-ray Re-issue release date: February 8th, 2011

A Man Escaped BD - Based on the true story of Resistance fighter André Devigny, who was imprisoned and sentenced to death by the Nazis during the Second World War, the film reconstructs his actual cell at Montluc, the fortress in Lyons which would later house the war criminal Klaus Barbie, and follows his meticulous plans for escape. Bresson totally involves the viewer in this compelling and thrilling tale of courage and faith, which is all the more authentic for its use of non-professional actors and the director's sparse style. The film's stunning denouement, to the accompaniment of Mozart's sublime Mass in C Minor, is spiritually moving and succeeds in taking the story onto a different plane. Blu-ray Release Date: November 2nd, 2010

La Horde BD - Police searching for some bloodthirsty criminals instead find themselves battling the walking dead in this action-packed horror vehicle from France. Franck Jimenez (Aurelien Recoing) is a Parisian police officer dealing with the death of his partner, Mathias Rivoallan. Jimenez suspects that Rivoallan was murdered by a band of ruthless gangsters led by the Markudis Brothers, Adewale (Eriq Ebouaney) and Bola (Doudou Masta), who operate out of a decaying housing project on the outskirts of town. Rivoallan's wife is also convinced the Murkudis pulled the trigger, and so Jimenez brings together a handful of fellow cops to enact their own personal justice against the mobsters. Jimenez plans a raid on the Markudis' headquarters with the help of Aurore (Claude Perron), a female officer who'd had an affair with Rivoallan, and two other cops, Ouessem (Jean-Pierre Martins) and Tony (Antoine Oppenheim). However, when the cops launch their vigilante raid, they met with a response they never anticipated -- a pack of ravenous zombies has laid claim to the apartment block, and avenging their fallen partner takes a backseat to saving their own lives. Blu-ray Release Date: October 26th, 2010

-30- - It’s ideal for the brisk style of Jack Webb (Dragnet) – a world Webb explores in a film taking its title from the “-30-” reporters place at the end of a story. In -30-, newshounds race against the clock to fill the empty page with stories that will become part of America’s next morning alongside a cup of coffee. Webb leads the way, playing the night editor of a big-city paper whose staff includes William Conrad, David Nelson, Joe Flynn and Richard Deacon. From 3 PM till midnight, they’ll ride the adrenaline rush of dramas that shape the world and their own lives. Come next day, they’ll gladly do it again. DVD Release Date: September 21st, 2010

The Mafu Cage - Academy Award winner LEE GRANT (IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT, SHAMPOO) stars with Academy Award nominee CAROL KANE (DOG DAY AFTERNOON, WHEN A STRANGER CALLS) in this psychological thriller directed by Emmy winner KAREN ARTHUR (LADY BEWARE, LEGACY) . Cissy (Kane) and Ellen (Grant) are daughters of a deceased African primatologist who kept wild animals in a cage in his living room. Mentally unbalanced, Cissy virtually lives in this exotic 'Mafu Cage', crowded with hothouse plants and strange African artifacts. Ellen is obsessed with the caretaking of Cissy and must keep a constant watch on her sister's unpredictable personality. When Ellen's co-worker, David (James Olson-THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN, RAGTIME), begins making romantic advances towards Ellen, Cissy believes the man poses a threat to the sisters' relationship. The disturbed Cissy ensnares David in the Mafu Cage and sujects him to a series of horrific, and deadly rituals! DVD Release Date: October 25th, 2010

Sweet William - Ann (Jenny Agutter, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, LOGAN'S RUN, WALKABOUT) has few romantic prospects after her boyfriend leaves England for a teaching job in New York. Ann's life changes swiftly, though, after a random meeting with William (Sam Waterston, Academy Award Nominee THE KILLING FIELDS, CAPRICORN ONE, TV's LAW AND ORDER), a handsome, magnetic, and charming divorced young man she meets at a school concert. DVD Release Date: September 28th, 2010

Zombie Nightmare - Tony Washington (Thor) foils a robbery at a local grocery store only to be run over and killed by a group of savage suburban teens. But the horror has only just begun, for in the darkest recesses of Tony's backyard, a voodoo ceremony takes place which resurrects Tony into a superhuman zombie avenger. One by one, Tony's ruthless killers are graphically and brutally murdered as the undead Tony takes his gory revenge! The stage is set for a bone-chilling climax as the authorities (Adam West and Frank Dietz) finally come face to face with the dead rising from the grave. DVD Release Date: October 25th, 2010
