Inspired by writer/director Damien Chazelle, follow the journey of a young jazz musician with a passion for drumming and dreams of greatness. Andrew Neiman, played by rising star Miles Teller, is a determined 19-year-old student. His rigid music teacher, Terence Fletcher, played by J.K. Simmons, sees Andrew's raw talent, but will accept nothing less than perfection.
The film, featuring Jackie Cooper and musicians like Benny Goodman and Harry James in their prime, has been digitally remastered. The romance between a young trumpeter and a New Orleans-born piano player serves as the narrative plot line. But the core of the film is its celebratory history of 'syncopated' music - jazz - tracing it from the turn-of-the-century sounds of ragtime, through Dixieland, the blues, Chicago jazz and the swing era.
The newly formed Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman discover another super hero on the planet. Aquaman and the group must band together to prevent a war between the inhabitants of land and sea. Featurettes, sneak peaks and bonus cartoons add to the non-stop action.
Directed by legendary filmmaker Mark Rydell, starring Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn and Jane Fonda, and based on a popular play by celebrated writer Ernest Thompson, the film is a classic tale of family told with heart and warmth that received ten Academy Award nominations. This collector's edition disc includes commentary and featurettes.
Unfolding like a serialized 19th century French naturalist novel, this uncompromising series follows a cast of gorgeous women trapped by circumstances beyond their control in the luxury brothel 'Paradise'. Considered a first class closed house reserved for aristocratic or bourgeois clientele and noted for strange and refined practices during a time when prostitution was legalized, Paradise is populated by a fascinating cast of characters, each of whom struggles to find escape and solace in their own way.
The remarkable story of 93-year-old jazz legend Clark Terry. A living monument to the Golden Era of Jazz, Terry - a mentor to Miles Davis - is among the few performers ever to have played in both Count Basie's and Duke Ellington's bands. In the 1960's, he broke the color barrier as the first African-American staff musician at NBC.
A dark and droll thriller with comic undertones about the fine art of killing. Mika Muller (Isabelle Huppert) is the head of a Swiss chocolate company who is not above dispensing a potent blend of hot chocolate and dangerous sedatives to those who get in her way. Isabelle Huppert won Best Actress honors for the film at the Montreal World Film Festival and at France's Lumiere Awards, while director Claude Chabrol won the prestigious Prix Louis Delluc.
Dougray Scott stars as a London doctor and single dad on his way home one night on the high-speed train with his son. He is startled and confused when the train whizzes past his stop - and becomes increasingly desperate to save himself and his mysterious fellow passengers as the train hurtles out of control, without a conductor or brakes but apparently controlled by someone looking to wreak havoc.
In 1942, Fritz Lang decided to make a film that would face the Nazi terror head-on. Working with the famous playwright Bertolt Brecht and the Oscar-winning cinematographer James Wong Howe, Lang devised a fact-based thriller that would shock and stir audiences.
Comedy icons Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr and Madeline Kahn star in Mel Brooks' brilliantly outrageous riff on Mary Shelley's classic story of Frankenstein. After inheriting his grandfather's castle in Transylvania, young Dr. Frankenstein (Wilder) follows in his ancestor's freaky footsteps as he sets out to reanimate a dead body...
The story revolves around two objects, a rare set of 18th-century Limoges china, and a 19th century aristocratic portrait. As these items are passed, sold, or stolen from one character to another, a giddy round dance of excess begins to take shape, one which suggests that if history doesn't repeat itself, it certainly rhymes. Co-writer Gerard Brach and director Otar Iosseliani uses a feather-light touch to expose the futility of class and social order, making a bagatelle of the concerns of rich and poor alike.
France, 1572. During an uneasy break in the wars of religion, Catholic King Charles IX (Jean-Hugues Anglade) concludes a marriage of state between his sister, Margot (Isabelle Adjani), and the Protestant Huguenot King Henry of Navarre (Daniel Auteuil). But Margot's skull-faced Queen Mother (Virna Lisi) is already plotting the attack on the Huguenots that would come to be known as the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, and Margot is in the throes of a throbbingly romantic affair with the Protestant La Mole (Vincent Perez).
A remarkable autobiography of Eric Lomax (Colin Firth), a British Army officer who is captured by the Japanese during WWII and sent to a POW camp, where he is tormented and forced to work on the Thai-Burma Railway. Decades later, still suffering the trauma of his wartime experiences, Lomax and his wife Patti (Nicole Kidman) discover that the Japanese interpreter responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and set out to confront him, in this powerful and inspiring tale of heroism, humanity and the redeeming power of love.
Middle-aged high school music teacher Keith Reynolds (Guy Pearce) lives a comfortable if unexciting life in a suburb north of New York City with his wife Megan (Amy Ryan) and teenage daughter Lauren (Mackenzie Davis). Keith is an accomplished cellist but he can't seem to progress beyond being a substitute player in a New York orchestra. However, he is reenergized when teenage British exchange student and piano prodigy Sophie (Felicity Jones) comes to stay with the family. The mutual attraction between teacher and student is immediate - despite the fact that Sophie is the same age as Lauren.
The all-new original movie is a thrilling film for the whole family and features some of the Justice League's most notable members. Fans won't want to miss this action-packed hit! After crafting a monumentally over-the-top plan to take over the world by expanding the polar ice caps, mastermind Lex Luthor is missing and widely presumed dead. One thousand years later, Luthor is discovered and memorialized in the Legion of Superheroes' museum, where the teenage superhero, Karate Kid, accidentally releases him.
Among the finest later films of Claude Chabrol, here he once again uses a murder mystery to expose the underlying tensions and deceptions of a close-knit community. A 10-year-old girl's violated body is found in the woods of a Brittany fishing village. Suspicion immediately falls on Rene (Jacques Gamblin), a painter and the girl's art teacher; he is apparently the last person to have seen her alive.
Two classic films that honor the military just in time for Memorial Day with John Wayne in a story set just prior to the invasion of Pearl Harbor and a hard-hitting personal story of an African American solider and the discrimination he faces during his service in WWII. Newly remastered in HD for the first time, these films have never looked better.
