Latest DVD Reviews

THE GOLD RUSH (BLU-RAY)

THE GOLD RUSH (

I'm ashamed to say I'm never seen a movie either starring Charlie Chaplin or directed by him. What better way to finally break the seal on this cinema legend than with what many consider to be a comedic masterwork.

GEORGE HARRISON: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD

GEORGE HARRISON

Long and engrossing, Living in the Material World tells the story of the "quiet Beatle" George Harrison. Archive footage, private photos, and personal anecdotes paint this glossy portrait of the musician, artist and religious philosopher.

EXORCISMUS

EXORCISMUS

For me exorcism flicks fall pretty low down on my list of preferred horror genre storylines. The premise has little room for variation, and is predestined to include certain obligatory elements. That's what we get in Exorcismus, though director Manuel Carballo tries his best to cover the material from a slightly different angle. But in the end it's another possession title.

CHALET GIRL

CHALET GIRL

There isn't much that doesn't play out as one would expect in this bouncy romantic comedy set in a fancy Austrian ski resort. As much as I tend to shy away from these type of films I have to admit that the cast was charming, the locations attractive and though this one doesn't reinvent the genre it is colorful fun. Just don't tell anyone I just said that.

Well worth a rental if you like this sort of thing. And maybe even if you don't. I won't tell if you won't.

A HOLLIS FRAMPTON ODYSSEY (BLU-RAY)

A HOLLIS FRAMPT

The Criterion Collection has gone the avant-garde short film route before, so I'm sure their collection of iconic American filmmaker Hollis Frampton's best works is sure to dazzle film fans on Blu-ray.

42ND STREET FOREVER THE BLU-RAY EDITION

42ND STREET FOR

If the thought of nearly four hours of B-movie trailers from the late 1960s/early 1970s - blaxploitation, sexploitation, martial arts, horror, sci-fi, vengeance, etc - gets you as giddy as it does me then the 42nd Street Forever: The Blu-Ray Edition from Synapse is necessary viewing.

Recommended, but for a very select audience.

THE INNKEEPERS (BLU-RAY)

THE INNKEEPERS

After the well-deserved genre success of 1970s-era retro throwback The House of the Devil - which was followed by the colossal mess that was Cabin Fever 2 - writer/director Ti West gets creative control again with The Innkeepers. Gladly this 'haunted hotel' flick doesn't try to be some sort of reimagined The Shining, and West shows some dandy chops building tension slowly and effectively with a minimum of so-called 'money shots'.

Recommended.

SHOCK LABYRINTH

I'm more than willing to take a look at anything from the maker of The Grudge, director Takashi Shimizu. From the sounds of reviews for this, his latest flick, my stance on Shimizu could, unfortunately, change pretty fast.

RETURN

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.

DARK SHADOWS: THE BEST OF BARNABAS The Greatest Episodes Collection

DARK SHADOWS: T

If you're looking for something to clear your palate after having been exposed to the Depp/Burton reimagining of the classic series Dark Shadows as a brainless sex comedy, you can hardly do better than this collection of nine of the episodes of that original series featuring the late great Jonathan Frid. Barnabas Collins, as portrayed by Frid, was the original tormented vampire, making possible the empires of Anne Rice and Twilight, and this selection points up some of what made him so irresistible all those years ago.

NORMAN MAILER: THE AMERICAN

NORMAN MAILER:

This is an often unpleasant tale of a celebrated writer that is told frankly and openly by people who knew him personally. Director Joe Mantegna weaves their commentary into a visual history of the latter half of the last century and evokes an intriguing portrait of one its most important chroniclers. Norman Mailer: The American gives a multi-faceted answer to the question: who was that guy?

LA HAINE (BLU-RAY)

LA HAINE (BLU-R

Five years after its 2007 SD release by Criterion Mathiew Kassovitz's brutal, intense social drama La Haine is issued in 1080p. The supplemental material is the same as that earlier version, but the image transfer does offer some subtle improvements over the previous offering. Enough to double dip? Not necessarily.

TITANIC: THE COMPLETE STORY

TITANIC: THE CO

In this anniversary year, there has been more than the normal amount of material about Titanic in popular culture including a new mini-series and a re-release of James Cameron's popular Titanic film remastered in 3D. Titanic: The Complete Story is a fine dvd set and for those who have dreamt of and wondered about this ship. They will enjoy learning just a little bit more of this doomed journey and the people who you never get to hear about that died that fated night on April 15th one hundred years ago.

DARK SHADOWS: THE GREATEST EPISODES COLLECTION - FAN FAVORITES

DARK SHADOWS: T

Some entertainment franchises go on and on. A new movie version and a new Complete Series Collection helps keep Dark Shadows on top of the heap. Barnabas and friends chilled us as children and now reaches a whole new generation of fans in a whole new form. This sampler of nine episode drawn from the entire run of the show provides a taste of the shows recipe of mixing soap opera, Gothic horror and supernatural horror. From the angst of cursed vampire Barnabas Collins to the iron-willed witchcraft of Angelique Bouchard to the wide-eyed horror of the haunted and hunted Maggie Evans to the glib tortured soul Quentin Collins, the shows characters and themes created a rich tapestry of occult television that resonates to this day.
