CORRUPTION (BLU-RAY)

CORRUPTION (BLU

This is the first time this British shocker has ever been released in the U.S. on home video. I, for one, can't wait to see what the legendary Peter Cushing brings to such a creepy role.
Release Date: October 08, 2013 from Grindhouse Releasing

CONCRETE BLONDES

CONCRETE BLONDE

Amusing enough crime comedy with earnest performances and a competent production, Concrete Blondes is diverting enough for a look-see.

THE GIRL

THE GIRL

This well-acted redemptive drama features a pair of fine performances: one from Abbie Cornish and the other from nine-year-old newcomer Maritza Santiago Hernandez. I didn't particularly care for the film overall, but Cornish and Santiago Hernandez were terrific throughout.

THE ATTACK (BLU-RAY)

THE ATTACK (BLU

Critics have raved about this foreign drama for a while now, and it's nice to see it as yet another acclaimed film being distributed on Blu-ray from the Cohen Media Group.
Release Date: November 11, 2013 from Cohen Media Group

THE HORDE

THE HORDE

If you're up on your 14th century Mongol-vs-Russian history this slow-moving 129 minute historical drama may be worth your while. As for the rest of us who think our absence of relevant historical knowledge can be assuaged by a lot of battle sequences (warning: it does not contain even one) it is a beautifully shot production that looks, feels and sounds period authentic.

TANK GIRL (BLU-RAY) (COLLECTOR'S EDITION)

TANK GIRL (BLU-

I'm not alone in saying that I hated this movie when it came out, nearly 20 years ago. Strangely, it's maintained a cult following, since, so I'm anxious to see if my opinion changes after another viewing.

LIFE IS SWEET (BLU-RAY)

LIFE IS SWEET (

Few directors capture the nuances of working class life (good, bad and otherwise) quite like Mike Leigh, and this early work of his remains one of my favorites. Criterion's new 2K transfer is impressive, and the addition of a new Leigh commentary easily push this release onto the "you need this" list.

Highly recommended.

HORROR STORIES

HORROR STORIES

The recent resurgence of horror anthologies is a glorious thing. South Korea is diving into this pool also, and I'd be shocked if this wasn't a fun, scary flick.

SHOUT AT THE DEVIL (BLU-RAY/DVD COMBO)

SHOUT AT THE DE

A big colorful mid-1970s on-location African adventure epic with a couple of charismatic leads, this one unfortunately suffers under the weight of its own bloated runtime.

THE BLUE ANGEL (BLU-RAY) 2-DISC ULTIMATE EDITION

THE BLUE ANGEL

The film itself is a classic, but here's a Blu-Ray "ultimate edition" release that lives up to the hype, as it includes a restored German-language version as well as the once long lost English-language version.

Highly recommended.

After nearly two decades director Neil Jordan returns to the vampire well with Byzantium, and the unconventional result is a haunting new look of those cursed with eternal life and a taste for human blood.

Recommended.

BOUNTY KILLER

BOUNTY KILLER

I think you already know whether you're the target audience for this just by looking at the cover art. If it falls in your entertainment wheelhouse there is much to enjoy, in all of its schlocky seen-it-before-sort-of excess glory.

CRYSTAL FAIRY & THE MAGICAL CACTUS (BLU-RAY)

CRYSTAL FAIRY &

Michael Cera can't do much wrong in my eyes, and I'm certainly intrigued, to say the least, at what a magical cactus has in store for him. I'd be shocked if there weren't at least a hand-ful of laugh-out-loud moments here.

This little-seen, yet fantastic, atmospheric drama is twisty and well-acted. Most importantly, it cuts deep, emotionally, and sticks with you long after its over.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES (BLU-RAY)

LA CAGE AUX FOL

A grand French farce from the late 1970s - albeit one that loses some steam in the final act - looks better than ever now on Blu-Ray, but the minimal supplements aren't quite up to the usual voluminous Criterion standards.

BABY PEGGY: THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

BABY PEGGY: THE

One of the very few remaining stars of the silent screen is Baby Peggy Montgomery, known today as Diana Serra Cary. This intriguing documentary, released just after her 95th birthday, takes a look at her sad tale and her search for the truth about what was going on around her as she was making millions for her family while still barely a few years old.

AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL (LIMITED EDITION 3-DISC BLU-RAY/DVD COMBO)

AN AMERICAN HIP

There are a lot of big-budget mainstream films that don't receive the sort of deluxe treatment on disc that this undeniably awful 1972 oddball title has. Grindhouse Releasing have stepped up bigtime with a fully-loaded 3-disc set that works very hard to elevate this to certifiable "cult classic" status.
