This live-action, fantasy adventure casts a wondrous new spell on Blu-ray and Digital HD, featuring stunning high definition picture and sound, plus spellbinding, all-new bonus features, including several deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurettes that take viewers deeper behind the scenes of the filmmaking magic.
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.
From Storybrooke to Fairy Tale Land and beyond, experience all the mystery, romance, action and adventure of the second season of 'Once Upon a Time.' Featuring all 22 remarkable episodes and exclusive bonus features, this must-own, five-disc boxed set is pure enchantment on an epic scale.
DVD Review IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (BLU-RAY)
The great Wong Kar-wai's masterpiece was given the proper Criterion Collection treatment on DVD a few years ago, and is one of their banner releases. It now shows up on a Criterion Blu-ray disc, and I'd be shocked if it wasn't even more special than the first time.
Sixty-ish spouses Vladimir and Elena uneasily share his palatial Moscow apartment--he's a still-virile, wealthy businessman; she's his former nurse who has clearly married up. Estranged from his own wild-child daughter, Vladimir openly despises his wife's freeloading son and family. But when a sudden illness and an unexpected reunion threaten the dutiful housewife's potential inheritance, she must hatch a desperate plan....
In an isolated, slowly dying mining town, children are vanishing without a trace - abducted, the townsfolk whisper, by a mysterious entity known locally as 'The Tall Man.' Town nurse Julia Denning (Jessica Biel) seems skeptical...until her young David disappears in the middle of night. Frantic to rescue the boy, Julia lives every parent's darkest nightmare in this terrifying, shock-around-each-corner thriller.
This enchanting classic comes alive in stunning fashion for in-home viewing for the very first time on Blu-ray high definition with enhanced picture and sound, once again being embraced by new and old generation alike and only available ... as long as the spell lasts.
Bursting with over two hours of special features that whisk viewers away to exotic locations in pursuit of the global production, disclose how the thrilling action sequences were captured, reveal the secrets of the life masks and other cool props, and much, much more. The film will also be available as a two-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and as a single-disc DVD, each with select special features. All Blu-ray and DVD releases available for purchase will be enabled with UltraViolet, a new way to collect, access and enjoy movies. With UltraViolet, consumers can add movies to their digital collection in the cloud, and then stream or download them - reliably and securely - to a variety of devices.
Screen adaptation of Yasmina Reza's Tony Award-winning Broadway hit, "God of Carnage," will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD March 20th from Sony Pictures Classics and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Academy Award(R) winner Roman Polanski (2002, Best Director, The Pianist) directs this sharp and witty comedy of "(no) manners" about the human condition and the carnage that is adulthood. Starring an ensemble cast featuring Academy Award(R) winner Jodie Foster (1988, Best Actress, The Accused), Academy Award(R) winner Kate Winslet (2008, Best Actress, The Reader), Academy Award(R) winner Christoph Waltz (2009, Best Supporting Actor, Inglourious Basterds), and Academy Award(R) nominee John C. Reilly (2002, Supporting Actor, Chicago), the bitterly amusing story focuses on one evening in the lives of two couples locked in a showdown after their children are involved in a playground incident.
This film, directed by the great Italian auteur, Michelangelo Antonioni, isn't as popular as his other classics. Now that it's on Blu-ray from Criterion, hopefully more cinema buffs will discover that this film deserves equal, if not more acclaim.
It's one of the greatest, true detective stories ever. Featuring eight spellbinding missions, Nazi Hunters tells how a select band of secret agents and avengers hunted down some of the most evil men in history... And finally brought them to justice.
DVD Review BLACK MOON (CRITERION BLU-RAY)
The great Louis Malle's most fasinating, spellbinding film finally gets it's due via this wonderful Blu-ray release from The Crierion Collection. I can't wait to see what an amazing job they've done with this one.
HBO Documentary Films heats up the summer with provocative and compelling films every Monday night, kicking off a new 11-week series MONDAY, JUNE 6 at 9:00 pm. (ET/PT). From a portrait of maverick chess genius Bobby Fischer to a gripping undercover visit to a Manhattan sex crimes unit, from the story of feminist icon Gloria Steinem to a road trip to meet newly naturalized U.S. citizens, HBO documentaries take subscribers to worlds others rarely see. This year's summer series features the work of a wide a range of directors, from award winners such as Greg Barker, Liz Garbus, Lisa F. Jackson, Peter Kunhardt and Alexandra Pelosi, to exciting emerging filmmakers.
...rich and touching animated feature about the father-daughter relationship between an aging magician whose art is slowly becoming obsolete and a young orphan girl just at the start of life's journey. The script, originally penned by the late Jaques Tati (Mr. Hulot's Holiday, Mon Oncle) as a love letter to his daughter, serendipitously found its way into the hands of Chomet by way of his sole surviving daughter Sophie Tatischeff who thought his hand-drawn animation style would perfectly suit the film.
