Latest DVD Reviews

A HAUNTING: THE 2012 SEASON

A HAUNTING: THE

I haven't exactly heard great things about this show, and it seems awfully derivative of other supernatural reality series, but if it's even the least bit spooky, then I'm definitely on board.
Release Date: April 23, 2013 from Timeless Media Group

BADLANDS (BLU-RAY)

BADLANDS (BLU-R

Watching Terrence Malick's early-career classic with a young Sissy Spacek and Martin Sheen never gets old, as there's always some tiny nuance to discover. Now, thanks to The Criterion Collection, the film sports a brand new 4K digital transfer, which is all the excuse I need to explore the film yet again.

LIZ & DICK

LIZ & DICK

Exploitive much? Lindsey Lohan brings her tabloid gravitas to a movie picking over the bones of the woman, whose life was the material of tabloid legend. Not very good as a biography, not very good as a movie, this film careens from cringeworthy to boring. For Lohan completists only (or maybe Grant Bowler fans).

CHINA BEACH: THE COMPLETE SERIES

CHINA BEACH: TH

China Beach is an outstanding television show with great production, writing and acting. It is dramas like this that make the DVD format worthwhile. There is a delicious opportunity for those who didn't see it, hardly remember it or loved it to experience the show all over again. Highly recommended.

TROUBLED TEENS CLASSIC EDUCATIONAL SHORTS: VOL. 6

TROUBLED TEENS

There's generally a kitschy cool to educational shorts, but this batch of teen-themed material is often more of a downer than a laugh-fest. If you're a completist of the series you'll want to pick this up, otherwise I'd say not so much.

THE LONELIEST PLANET

THE LONELIEST P

This film made it on numerous Best of 2012 lists, and deservedly so, as it is a quiet, thought-provoking masterpiece. The only crime is that it there are no plans for a U.S. Blu-ray release.

LITTLE WHITE LIES (BLU-RAY)

LITTLE WHITE LI

Let's see if lightning can strike twice for French filmmaker Guillaume Canet, as this time he's tackling an epic drama with a huge, ensemble cast. My money is on the director pulling off such a feat.

THE BLOB (BLU-RAY)

THE BLOB (BLU-R

Sure, it's stiffly acted and features some of the oldest teenagers ever seen on film, but as a trend-bucking representative sample of 1950s American-made "giant monster" flicks this is a genre classic. Plus, Criterion's Blu-Ray treatment is wonderfully done. Highly recommended.

DOWNTON ABBEY SEASONS ONE & TWO LIMITED EDITION

DOWNTON ABBEY S

It is rare when something lives up to the hype. Downton Abbey is Golden Globe winning, Emmy winning and everybody is talking about it and making fun of it. It is a phenomenon that is found on public television. It is simply great fun to watch. Highly recommended.

SCHOOLGIRL HITCHHIKERS (BLU-RAY)

SCHOOLGIRL HITC

A film like Jean Rollin's bizarro Schoolgirl Hitchhikers is something of an acquired taste. If at all. But if you dig the sexy weirdness there's plenty to enjoy.

RULES FOR SCHOOL CLASSIC EDUCATIONAL SHORTS: VOL. 5

RULES FOR SCHOO

Odds are you either love the bizarre weirdness of vintage educational shorts or you don't. If you do like them then this collection of school-related films is over three hours of what-the-hell-was-that entertainment.

Recommended.

The transfer ain't much but there's a likeable charm to this 1987 indie about a bunch of disparate souls learning how they all need one another.

Worth a rental.

FEMME FATALES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

FEMME FATALES:

I like the premise of this sexy Cinemax anthology quasi-noir series more than I like the actual eps themselves, which is essentially attractive women taking control of various nasty situations, as well as being nude most of the time. They don't call it Skinemax for nothing.

WHITE ZOMBIE (BLU-RAY)

WHITE ZOMBIE (B

Kino may have committed a huge miscue with the rather grotesque digitally restored transfer offered here, but the film remains a classic in its own right. The superb commentary track from film historian Frank Thompson and the unrestored 'raw' print are reason enough to pick this up. Recommended (but certainly NOT for the primary transfer).

I'm a big fan of David Cronenberg, which makes it doubly hard to admit that Cosmopolis left me dulled and only occasionally attentive. The extras, on the other hand, are fantastic.
