DVD Review SUNSET BOULEVARD
An indelible piece of pop culture. The greatest movie ever made about movies. Maybe even the greatest movie ever made, full stop. On a sweet new Blu-ray.
Could these top experts have found the long-lost electric Fender Stratocaster Bob Dylan plugged in at the '65 Newport Folk Festival? They also track down some autographs allegedly signed during the Beatles' legendary U.S. tour in 1964, the story behind an old 78rpm distributed by K.K.K. Records, and an old Woolworth sign that may have been part of the scene at the 1960 Winston-Salem lunch-counter sit-ins. Top experts leave no stone unturned as they travel around the country to explore other findings such as details behind the heroic acts pictured in a poster about two African American soldiers in World War I and a hand-drawn map of Valley Forge that George Washington could have used.
Patti Smith's vibrant live performance - a fervent intermingle of visual artistry, musical exploration, spoken word, and Rock 'N' Roll - is beautifully captured via DTS Surround Sound, Dolby Digital 5.1, and Dolby Digital Stereo.
Based on the hit Broadway musical and featuring the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Foreigner, Journey, Poison, REO Speedwagon, Twisted Sister and more - a love story that celebrates big dreams and loud drums. The Blu-ray Combo Pack features the extended edition, with over 13 additional minutes of more songs, more dancing and more laughs.
DVD Review THE HEINEKEN KIDNAPPING (BLU-RAY)
Yes, folks, even seemingly ageless actors like Rutger Hauer get older, but he seems to be aging gracefully, leading up this fictionalized version of the most publicized abduction to ever occur in the Netherlands.
Pete Townshend. Roger Daltrey. Keith Moon. John Entwistle. Filmed in Houston, Texas 11/20/75, it was right at the start of a massive tour of the U.S. to promote The Who By Numbers, their seventh album in their 10th year of existence. With Dolby Digital Stereo sound, this 117-minute 25-song bomb blast--previously only available as a muddled bootleg--has been pridefully restored to its rightful visual and sonic superiority by longtime Who collaborator Jon Astley
The 20-song, 90-minute set list was drawn from his legendary career and includes several songs that haven't been performed live in many years. 'Kodachrome,' 'Mother and Child Reunion,' 'Gone At Last' and 'The Obvious Child' are just some of the highlights as well as songs from Simon's most recent album, 2011's So Beautiful or So What.
Features rare footage, archive interviews, seldom seen photographs and the music that changed the world, all at once making for the finest program on this element of Bob Dylan and The Band's respective and communal careers yet to emerge.
Lorna is a strong-willed Texas woman who's had enough of her untrustworthy husband Dale's (Val Kilmer) criminal acts and lack of husbandry. Fed up, she enlists the help of her old friend, Tiny (Kelli Giddish), to help her figure out what to do with Dale after his latest double-cross involving the theft of $100,000 from a bank.
DVD Review WORRIED ABOUT THE BOY
While I'm not sure the masses were clamoring for a biopic about the infamous lead singer of 80s Pop group Culture Club, this flick promises to tell us everything we ever wanted to know about Boy George, and then some.
DVD Review RETURN
Linda Cardellini has been laying relatively low since her stint on ER, but, according to buzz surrounding this film's limited theatrical run, she's back with a vengeance. A strong supporting cast sure doesn't diminish my high expectations for this film either.
Extended clip titled, I'd Rather Not from last week's episode of Modern Family.
Peabody Award-winning journalist Bill Moyers (PBS, NBC, CBS) explores how "super lobbyist" Jack Abramoff rode a wave of corruption to enrich himself and promote his causes - from Indian casinos in Louisiana to the Moscow offices of Russia's new oligarchs - taking down other Washington heavyweights in the process. The DVD set includes a bonus disc with Buying the War, a 83-minute bonus examination of the media's role in the 2003 invasion of Iraq; segments from Bill Moyers Journal; a 8-page viewer's guide; and much more ($49.99, AthenaLearning.com). Capitol Crimes is Athena's eleventh release from Moyers' acclaimed library of programs.
