Latest DVD Reviews

STORAGE WARS: VOLUME THREE

STORAGE WARS: V

One of the hottest shows on cable returns in this 2-disc set featuring the second half of season two. It may be reality television, though recent events have raised questions about whether there's more "television" than "reality."
Release Date: July 17, 2012 from A&E

THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (BLU-RAY)

THE MAN WHO KNE

One of Hitchcock's early thrillers and Peter Lorre's first English-language picture, this is sure to be another excellent effort by The Criterion Collection. I certainly can't wait to see what they've done with the video restoration.

TWO-LANE BLACKTOP (BLU-RAY)

TWO-LANE BLACKT

Even if you're not a gearhead (and I most certainly am not) there's an undeniable sense of self-discovery and purpose in Two-Lane Blacktop, a stripped down, revved up love story about men, cars, women, life.

Recommended.

PURPLE NOON (BLU-RAY)

PURPLE NOON (BL

Alain Delon's beautiful and cold Tom Ripley is one of film's all-time great villains, and this new edition of Purple Noon shows off the film's sensuous pleasures to great effect.

BASKET CASE 2

BASKET CASE 2

This second installment of the adventures of everyone's favorite surgically separated conjoined twins takes the weirdness level up a few notches, to say the least.

HEMPSTERS: PLANT THE SEED

HEMPSTERS: PLAN

The topic of marijuana legalization has never been more of a hot-button issue than it is today, and this documentary promises to delve into the subject down to its core. It'll be interesting to see just how politically driven the film turns out to be.

MANSON

MANSON

I've always been aware of the Manson Family murders, but I've never had a direct knowledge of the minute details behind them. I have a feeling, despite some assumedly awful acting during the dramatization portions of this film, I'll know a lot more once it's finished.

WEEKEND (BLU-RAY)

Weekend wisely avoids most of the traps of its genre, and is brought to life by great performances and a disarmingly naturalistic tone.

RASHOMON (BLU-RAY)

RASHOMON (BLU-R

It took longer than we wanted, but Kurosawa's influential, twisty masterpiece is finally available on Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection. It's also certainly no surprise that this 62-year-old film has never looked or sounded better.

DIE NIBELUNGEN (BLU-RAY)

DIE NIBELUNGEN

This is an epic release in every sense of the word, from the history of the films to the scope of the storytelling to the elaborate restoration process.

Highly recommended, and a surefire addition to my 2012 "Best Of" list

ROSEMARY'S BABY (BLU-RAY)

ROSEMARY'S BABY

Perhaps not the ideal film for expectant mothers to watch, Rosemary's Baby remains a masterful bit of horror that still has the ability to disturb and terrify. And it's even better on Blu-Ray.

Highly recommended.

VISIONS OF ECSTASY (The Films of Nigel Wingrove)

VISIONS OF ECST

This short, experimental film has been tough to get a hold of for years, thanks, in large part, to it being banned in the UK. Now that such a ban has been lifted, we can see for ourselves what the fuss was all about.

This creepy flick got the raw end of the deal with a miniscule theatrical release earlier this year. It deserved much more and will hopefully garner a much bigger audience via IFC's Blu-ray release.

WOLF LAKE: THE COMPLETE SERIES

WOLF LAKE: THE

Werewolves. Shapeshifters. That is usually enough to get my interest, but the hook for this set complete series set (nine episodes) of a show dropped after just five episodes were broadcast is the inclusion of the unaired pilot, which shows a path the show could have taken and didn't. Could things have been different?

ANCIENT ALIENS: SEASON FOUR (BLU-RAY)

ANCIENT ALIENS:

Series writers might be stretching sometimes to fill an hour on a topic occasionally, but pound-for-pound this is easily my favorite History Channel series. Mock it if you want, but this show always makes me think about the big picture just a little bit differently.

THE HEINEKEN KIDNAPPING (BLU-RAY)

THE HEINEKEN KI

Yes, folks, even seemingly ageless actors like Rutger Hauer get older, but he seems to be aging gracefully, leading up this fictionalized version of the most publicized abduction to ever occur in the Netherlands.

IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (BLU-RAY)

IN THE MOOD FOR

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.

CHILDREN OF PARADISE (BLU-RAY) (Les Enfants du paradis)

CHILDREN OF PAR

Long considered one of the great films of all time, Marcel Carné's epic drama now gets its finest treatment, courtesy of Criterion. And it is wonderful.

Highly recommended, and one of my top ten releases of 2012.

NEIL YOUNG JOUR

Director Jonathan Demme took a great Talking Heads concert and made it better. Now, he chronicles a unique journey home for Neil Young, and likely, takes this to another level as well.

ROCK OF AGES (BLU-RAY+DVD COMBO)

ROCK OF AGES (B

One of the most critically lambasted and dumped-on films of 2012 comes to Blu-Ray with an extended edition (not always a good thing) and after sitting through this choreographed lovefest to big-haired 1980s rock music I have come to one conclusion. Rock of Ages - I liked it. I may be in the minority, but damn it I liked it.

Say it loud, say it proud: recommended.

TOMBOY

TOMBOY

The bold performance of young Zoé Héran is the centerpiece here in this gentle French film about a 10-year-old girl who pretends to be a boy.

Consider this a rental/Netflix recommendation.

BASKET CASE 3

BASKET CASE 3

The further adventures of Duane and his malformed, formerly conjoined twin brother Belial stick in my memory as a case of director Frank Henenlotter going to the well one too many times. That opinion could change, given that it's been at least 15 years since I've seen this second sequel, but I have a bad feeling it won't.
