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.
Release Date: March 13, 2012 from A&E

THOU SHALT NOT KILL...EXCEPT (BLU-RAY)

THOU SHALT NOT

DONALD GLOVER: WEIRDO

DONALD GLOVER:

One of the stars of the hilarious NBC show Community, Glover is sure to be just as funny on the stand-up stage. It's nice that we finally have a DVD excuse to find out if this is, indeed, the case.

TO CATCH A THIEF (BLU-RAY)

TO CATCH A THIE

The latest in the recent wave of Alfred Hitchcock films to hit Blu-ray, this one simply has to be seen for the pairing of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly alone.

THE BROKEN TOWER

THE BROKEN TOWE

James Franco went right from a Best Actor Oscar nomination to the director's chair for this true story of Poet, Hart Crane. Here's hoping it's at least a little more engaging than his acting turn as Allen Ginsberg a few years ago.

ADRIFT (CHOI VOI)

ADRIFT

This highly-acclaimed Vietnamese film is an erotic drama that gives us an inside look at what life is like in present-day Hanoi. Hopefully it's as appealing as the image on the case's cover.

WORLD ON A WIRE (BLU-RAY)

WORLD ON A WIRE

This is one of those classics of foreign cinema that I've known about since I was a kid, but have never actually seen. What better way to experience all 3-plus hours of this masterpiece for the first time than via a Criterion Collection Blu-ray.

ANATOMY OF A MURDER (BLU-RAY)

ANATOMY OF A MU

Preminger's Anatomy of a Murder is as entertaining as it is thoughtful about the limits of the law in grasping human nature. It feels fresh and mature even fifty years later, and stands as one of the best courtroom dramas in film history.

BELLE DE JOUR (BLU-RAY)

BELLE DE JOUR (

The ageless Catherine Deneuve gives one of her most remarkable performances in Luis Bunuel's surreal classic. I can't wait to see how great it looks on a Criterion Collection Blu-ray disc.

WWII IN 3D (BLU-RAY)

WWII IN 3D (BLU

It's hard to believe that a ton of information about a huge era in U.S. History can be crammed into a 46-minute documentary, but I have a feeling that this disc is all about the spectacle of 3D technology.

RESURRECT DEAD: THE MYSTERY OF THE TOYNBEE TILES

A truly intriguing subject will hopefully translate into a documentary that is just as compelling. The inclusion of Stanley Kubrick's name on the DVD cover only adds to the anticipation.

HENRI-GEORGES CLOUZOT'S INFERNO (Blu-ray)

HENRI-GEORGES C

Given that this film began shooting almost 50 years ago is intriguing enough. Flicker Alley has upped the ante by including a second disc of supplementary material that allows us to study this compelling project long after the film itself is over.

SON OF MORNING

SON OF MORNING

This is an intriguing premise, but I have a bad feeling that overdone attempts at quirkiness might be the film's downfall. However, the casting is intriguing, to say the least.

IDENTIFICATION OF A WOMAN (Criterion Blu-ray)

IDENTIFICATION

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.

THE FAMILY TREE (BLU-RAY)

THE FAMILY TREE

Not sure what to expect from this indie dark comedy, but with a huge, talented (for the most part) ensemble cast, and a ridiculous-looking Dermot Mulroney, this promises to at least be interesting stuff.
