Newsletter - FOR THE WEEK

OF December 21st, 2009


This Week's Highlights

Mingala ba! - Much sadness when we lose a friend. Critic/journalist extraordinaire Robin Wood has passed on at 78 years of age. Truly one of the most interesting people I will ever meet. I'm very proud that the DVDBeaver ListServ pooled funds to buy Robin a region-free player and many titles a few years back. He was as appreciative as we were at his extensive writings. He will be greatly missed. 

'Tis the season! With 2009 coming to a close we have 19 new reviews and/or comparisons from animated raining meatballs to 'The Duke' in 1080P battle fatigues, classic noirs to another Dardenne masterpiece, Bollywood Horror to an Orphic poet, bubblegum phantasmagoria to a mass of Mel Brooks jokery, modern sci-fi with political analogies to hunting naked women for sport, Tony Soprano to an ingenious retelling of The Wizard of Oz, Pasolini to an IRA based thriller etc. etc.. With brilliant Calendar Updates including Nick Ray, Bresson and Toy Stories to Blu!... the final days of the BIG sale, another contest (with 2 great prizes) and more... wishing you all a safe and happy holidays!

ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey):  There is a lot to recommend this week - While District 9 is deserved of accolades, I also found both animated features; 9 and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs very positive with worthwhile qualities. But one of my favorite films of the past couple of years is the Dardenne brothers The Silence of Lorna - worthy of being included in the Belgium brothers greatest films. I got a huge kick our of House (Hausu) from our friends at The Masters of Cinema. The Soprano have elevated television to a higher plane and Leonard endorses the iconic Season One on Blu-ray. We are highly appreciative of Gregory exposing more of the Warner Archive Noirs. This week he uncovered Suspense and Highway 301 - they may be more for cinephiles... than DVD-ophiles. Eric has more wild and wholly eclectia to titillate with Seven Women for Satan - a plot too cool to ignore and an unheard of genre with Bollywood Horror Collection Vol. 3 <eyebrows raise!>. Despite Leonard's lukewarm response I'm going to indulge in The Mel Brooks Collection as I believe I've only seen 1 of the 9 films offered. Brian has done some diligent work reviewing the 2 Pasolini Blu-rays that got past us early in the year - Arabian Nights and The Canterbury Tales certainly both deserve a look before the year end polling. Being somewhat versed in the tales of a blind swordsman - I quite enjoyed Ichi (a 'girl' as well - and I liked them too!). The Green Berets looks enticing but I didn't react well to the film but I can give a categorical pass to the Blu-ray of A Tale of Two Sisters....


Suspense - Let other movie ice queens skate into happily-ever-after. Belita straps on her blades for the noir-on-ice thriller Suspense, a torrid tale of an ice-show star who commits adultery for the man she loves – and of the man who commits murder for her. Frank Tuttle (This Gun for Hire, The Glass Key) directs; Barry Sullivan co-stars. Belita’s career was exceptional, even by Hollywood standards. A 12-year-old sensation at the 1936 Winter Olympics, the British-born beauty made several films in the 1940s that showcased her dazzling skating skills. But her artistry was not limited to the rink. Also an accomplished ballerina, she worked with Gene Kelly in 1956’s Invitation to the Dance. DVD Release Date: September, 2009

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs BR - Inspired by Ron and Judi Barrett's beloved children's book of the same name, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs follows inventor Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) and a brainy weathergirl (voice of Anna Faris) as they attempt to discover why the rain in their small town has stopped, and food is falling in its place. Meanwhile, lifelong bully Brent (voice of Andy Samberg) relishes in tormenting Flint like he did when they were kids, and Mayor Shelbourne (voice of Bruce Campbell) schemes to use Flint's latest invention -- a device designed to improve everyone's lives -- for his own personal gain. Mr. T voices by-the-books cop Earl Devereaux, and James Caan voices Flint's technophobe father, Tim. Blu-ray Release date: January 5th, 2009

The Green Berets BR - Anyone who fought in Vietnam can tell you that the war bore little resemblance to this propagandistic action film starring and co-directed by John Wayne. But the film itself is not nearly as bad as its reputation would suggest; critics roasted its gung-ho politics while ignoring its merits as an exciting (if rather conventional and idealistic) war movie. Some notorious mistakes were made--in the final shot, the sun sets in the east!--and it's an awkward attempt to graft WWII heroics onto the Vietnam experience. But as the Duke's attempt to acknowledge the men who were fighting and dying overseas, it's a rousing film in which Wayne commands a regiment on a mission to kidnap a Viet Cong general. David Janssen plays a journalist who learns to understand Wayne's commitment to battling Communism, and Jim Hutton (Timothy's dad) plays an ill-fated soldier who adopts a Vietnamese orphan. Blu-ray Release date: January 5th, 2009

50 Dead Men Walking BR - Belfast hoodlum Martin (Jim Sturgess) is recruited by a British agent (Ben Kingsley) to infiltrate the IRA during the height of the Northern Irish conflict and quickly becomes embroiled in a dangerous game that could cost him his life if his secret is found out. As other informers are brutally murdered, Martin starts to look for a way out, but his handler urges him to stay undercover in this taut action packed thriller based on a true story. Blu-ray Release date: January 5th, 2010

The Silence of Lorna - Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (THE CHILD) direct this drama about an Albanian woman torn between connections to three men and her own dreams. Lorna (Arta Dobroshi) is an immigrant living in Belgium. Though she has a boyfriend, her involvement with the Mafia leads her to marry Claudy (Jeremy Renier) so she can get citizenship. But her life is further complicated when she is told to marry a Russian criminal, putting Claudy's life in danger. Sony DVD Release Date: January 5th, 2010

Ichi BR - ICHI is a variation on the long-running ZATOICHI blind swordsman series with a wandering blind female protagonist Ichi (Haruka Ayase) in search of her teacher. After she decimates three members of the notorious Banki gang, she is joined by Toma (Takao Osawa), a reticent samurai who endeavored to save her before she took matters in hand. Ichi and Toma arrives in a small village living in fear of the Banki gang. Disfigured rogue samurai Banki sends his men after the samurai who killed three of his men. The men assume that Toma is the one responsible since the village has hired him to defend them. Banki's underestimation of Ichi enables her to help Toma and the village take on Banki's gang but Banki suggests to Ichi that he may know the man she is looking for and had also picked up learned enough from the blind swordsman to be a formidable rival. Blu-ray Release Date: December 22nd, 2009

Orpheus - Jean Cocteau’s 1940s update of the Orphic myth depicts Orpheus (Jean Marais), a famous poet scorned by the Left Bank youth, and his love for both his wife Eurydice (Marie Déa) and the mysterious Princess (Maria Casarès). Seeking inspiration, the poet follows the Princess from the world of the living to the land of the deceased through Cocteau’s trademark “mirrored portal.” As the myth unfolds, the director’s visually poetic style pulls the audience into realms both real and imagined in this, the centerpiece to his Orphic Trilogy. BFI DVD Release Date: October 27th, 2008

Bollywood Horror Collection Vol. 3 - Anita has been having terrifying nightmares in which she is stalked in a boiler room/cavernous dungeon (well, there are chains hanging all over the place amidst boilers and guillotines) by Shakaal, a creepy guy with a burnt face and a metal glove with claws and in waking life Anita's got the claw marks to prove it wasn't just a dream (although she doesn't show it to anyone until 45 minutes into the film). After "The Boss," a local tough and his gang try to "disrespect" Anita and her boyfriend comes to a kickboxing rescue, Anita and her friends (including the college's Michael Jackson-lookalike canteen owner) take off for a seaside romp (the second of several 5+ minute musical numbers) and get stranded. DVD Release Date: May 19th, 2009

House (Hausu) - An unforgettable mixture of bubblegum teen melodrama and grisly phantasmagoria, Obayashi's deranged fairy tale HOUSE is one of Japanese cinema's wildest supernatural ventures and a truly startling debut feature. Distressed by her widowed father's plans to remarry, Angel sets off with six of her schoolgirl friends in tow for a summer getaway in her aunt's isolated mansion. But all is not well - in this house of dormant secrets, long-held emotional traumas have terrifyingly physical embodiments and the girls will have to use all their individual talents if any are to survive. A rollercoaster ride without brakes, HOUSE is by turns sinister, hilarious and curiously touching, with ceaseless cinematic invention and a satirical, full-blooded approach to the horror genre. DVD Release Date: January 25th, 2010

The Mel Brooks Collection BR - The rear cover page for Fox's Mel Brooks collection reads: "Includes nine of the best Mel Brooks films." Since there are only ten, and the one that's missing – The Producers – is arguably the best or, at least, the most consistently brilliant, one might as easily have written: "Includes nine of the worst Mel Brooks films". That would have had a shot at being funny instead of pointing up the obvious oversight. The Producers is not a careless omission: Since MGM was responsible for the DVD, we can assume that there are other reasons why Fox chose to omit it from this collection. In any case, this is the same collection that appeared on DVD back in 2006. The titles are the same, but they are now all in high definition, with a few new extra features and all but one in uncompressed audio. Blu-ray Release Date: December 15, 2009

Highway 301 - Warner Bros. forgotten 1950 film Highway 301 is a bit of a hybrid of old WB gangster and film noir - which was then at its peak. Star Steve Cochran - who naturally looked like a former thug from the streets - plays George Legenza the leader of a gang of not-too-bright bank robbers blandly dubbed The Tri-State Gang. DVD Release Date: September, 2009

Arabian Nights BR - The final part of Pasolini's Trilogy of Life was two years in the making. The locations - Yemen, Ethiopia, Iran and Nepal - form a rich, exotic backdrop to these tales of slaves and kings, potions, betrayals, demons and, most of all love and lovemaking in all its myriad forms. Engrossing, mysterious, profound and liberating, Arabian Nights is an exquisitely dreamlike, sensuous and adult interpretation of the original folk tales, presented here in a beautiful new High-Definition restoration. Blu-ray Release date: April 27th, 2009

The Canterbury Tales BR - The second installment of Pasolini's Trilogy, with its depiction of unbridled fornication and a comically blasphemous visit to Hell in the closing five minutes, proved to be one of his bawdiest and most controversial films. Presented here in a transfer from the original negative, and with special features including alternative audio options, and a new documentary on Pasolini and the Italian genre film. Blu-ray Release date: April 27th, 2009

A Tale of Two Sisters BR - Following the death of their mother, the two sisters Su-mi and Su-yeon have spend some time recovering at a mental hospital, and are now returning home to their father, and their new “mother”. Already on their first night at home, strange things start to happening: footsteps, doors opening by themselves, and it soon is obvious, that the sisters isn’t what their stepmother had hoped for and she isn’t what the sisters want. Is it ghosts? Is it the stepmother who is playing tricks on them? Or is it something else? Blu-ray Release Date: November 2nd, 2009

9 BR - An action-packed adventure, director Shane Acker’s animated fantasy epic 9 is the feature-length expansion of his Academy Award-nominated 2004 short film of the same name. The screenplay for the feature is by Pamela Pettler (Monster House); directors Tim Burton (Beetlejuice) and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) are producing. Set in the near future, the world’s machines have turned on mankind and sparked social unrest - decimating the human population. But as our world falls to pieces, a mission begins to salvage the legacy of civilization, and a group of small “stitchpunk” creations is given the spark of life by a scientist - and they successfully survive the apocalypse. With their group being so small, these creatures must summon individual strengths well beyond their own proportions in order to outwit and fight against the still-functioning monster machines. 9 dynamically explores the will to live and how one soul can change the world. Blu-ray Release date: December 29th, 2009

Time Bandits BR - Plunging headfirst into history, director Terry Gilliam fearlessly brings the logic of children's fairy tales to bear as he navigates through myth and legend in a bizarre, ingenious retelling of THE WIZARD OF OZ. A boy and six good-natured little persons careen through time-twisting interactions with Napoleon, Robin Hood, and Agamemnon, among others, with a map the little people stole from their employer, the Supreme Being. But their intention is to rob their way through the past, which does not make their boss happy. Meanwhile, Evil is after the map in order to become the Supreme Being himself. The result is an extraordinarily visual extravaganza that overflows with Gilliam's ecstatic vision. The film is shot from a child's viewpoint, both through the character of Kevin and the placement of the camera. One of the morals of this thoroughly enjoyable, charming fantasy is that heroes aren't always all they're cracked up to be. Fun special effects and great supporting performances abound, including terrific turns by Ian Holm, John Cleese, Ralph Richardson, and especially David Warner as Evil. Blu-ray Release Date: October 5th, 2009

Seven Women for Satan - Businessman Boris Zaroff (writer/director Michel Lemoine) daydreams of hunting naked women for sport (in a sexualized variation on the exploits of his ancestor the Count Zaroff in THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME). When Zaroff takes for the weekend to his ancestral castle looked after by , Zaroff puts his fantasies into practice with the assistance/encouragement of sinister servant Karl (Howard Vernon, THE BLOOD ROSE), a vicious mastiff, and the beckoning ghost of Anne (Joelle Coeur, LES DEMONIAQUES) brutally murdered by his ancestor. He hires a comely secretary Muriel (Nathalie Zeiger, Robbe-Grillet's PLAYING WITH FIRE) to do little more than get drugged and fondle herself naked before a two-way mirror before Zaroff sets the dogs after her but a stranded comic-relief motorist couple may be a hindrance or provide more fresh meat. DVD Release Date: November 11th, 2003

Sopranos Season One - BR - As Babe Ruth was to Yankee Stadium, so Tony Soprano was to Home Box Office, for surely it was the six-season crime/family drama The Sopranos, capitalizing on HBO's popular and critical success of their prison series, Oz, that put HBO on the map and set the stage for what HBO is today: the leader in original television series. The Sopranos paved the way for other intelligent, non-frantic, long-arced dramas that would eventually beget Deadwood and The Wire, arguably the three best television drama series of the past ten years. Blu-ray Release date: November 24th, 2009

District 9 BR - “District 9,” a smart, swift new film from the South African director Neill Blomkamp (who now lives in Canada and who wrote the screenplay with Terri Tatchell), raises such a possibility in part by inverting an axiomatic question of the U.F.O. genre. In place of the usual mystery — what are they going to do to us? — this movie poses a different kind of hypothetical puzzle. What would we do to them? The answer, derived from intimate knowledge of how we have treated one another for centuries, is not pretty. Blu-ray Release date: December 22nd, 2009
