Latest DVD Reviews

QUADROPHENIA (BLU-RAY)

QUADROPHENIA (B

The brand new Who-approved 5.1 surround mix is the selling point here, because it transforms and rejuvenates the overall experience into something wonderfully larger than life. No doubt the way it was intended.

Recommended.

This is the film that Sean Bean fans have been waiting for, as they finally get to see him take on the action-packed role of a British Secret Service Agent...that isn't named James Bond.

MY SUCKY TEEN ROMANCE (BLU-RAY)

MY SUCKY TEEN R

This one got a lot of buzz because writer/director Emily Hagins was just 17 (or 18 depending on what you read) when it was made. That sort of overshadowed the film itself. Sure, My Sucky Teen Romance is often uneven and amateurish in spots - and shows the limitations of a rookie director without much capital - but if you look through all of that the result shows a fresh, creative filmmaker with a keen eye for the genre and a whole helluva lot of promise.

KATT WILLIAMS: KATTPACALYPSE

KATT WILLIAMS:

Kattapacalypse is pretty funny, but ultimately unsatisfying and not worthy of multiple viewings. Katt Williams is a funny dude but his material here is choppy and disjointed. He comes onto the stage like a lion abut by the end is laying down with the lambs.

11 years after 9/11, the horrors continue to linger. Films are still being made about this unforgettable tragedy, and this certainly sounds like one of the more memorable ones.

TITANIC (BLU-RAY) Limited 3D Edition

TITANIC (BLU-RA

We all know the story, and a whole heck of a lot of us saw the movie 15 years ago, but, unless you caught it earlier this year in theaters, you've never see a giant ship in 3D before. Well, folks, now's your chance!

THE LIVING DEAD GIRL (BLU-RAY)

THE LIVING DEAD

Jean Rollin is held in high esteem by a lot of horror fans, but I've never found his films to excite me the way they do others. Redemption/Kino's Blu-Ray treatment of The Living Dead Girl sure looks great - and the women are attractive - but the film plods along slowly.

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF A PORNO GANG (BLU-RAY)

THE LIFE AND DE

Not for the faint of heart or those easily offended by graphic sex and violence. For everyone else: do I have a movie for you.

Very highly recommended - but for adventurous viewers only.

HAROLD AND MAUDE (BLU-RAY)

HAROLD AND MAUD

Harold and Maude wears its distinctly offbeat look at life, love and death proudly, and this one has not lost a step in the 41 years since its release.

Highly recommended.

SQUIDBILLIES: VOLUME FIVE

SQUIDBILLIES: V

I'm a huge fan of a handful of Adult Swim shows, but this is one I've yet to see even a single episode of. What better excuse to finally do so than via Warner's fifth DVD collection.

LES VAMPIRES (BLU-RAY)

LES VAMPIRES (B

Louis Feuillade's ten-part crime thriller serial from 1915/1916 remains a hellzapoppin' funhouse ride nearly 100 years later, but one character in particular steals the 7-hour show.

Recommended.

ROSETTA (BLU-RAY)

ROSETTA (BLU-RA

It's great to see The Criterion Collection continue to release relatively obscure foreign films like this, regardless of their box office numbers. It would be a shock if this wasn't yet another one of their excellent Blu-ray efforts.

THE 39 STEPS (BLU-RAY)

THE 39 STEPS (B

Alfred Hitchcock was already a successful director when he adapted John Buchan's mystery thriller The Thirty-Nine Step, but this picture is where we see many of the staples of his later career come to fruition and gel in a way that few directors before or since have managed to accomplish. Criterion does this seminal movie proud in a loaded special edition that features a lovely and clean high-definition transfer of very difficult source material.

THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS (BLU-RAY)

THE ROYAL TENEN

It doesn't matter to me one bit that this Criterion Blu-Ray of Wes Anderson's colorfully brilliant The Royal Tenenbaums has the same extras as their 2002 SD release because the new director-approved transfer is quite simply: stunning.

Highly recommended - and one of the best Blu-Rays of 2012.

THE MOTH DIARIES (BLU-RAY)

THE MOTH DIARIE

Director Mary Harron is best known for bringing the character of Patrick Bateman to life on the big screen, but we'll see if she can work similar magic with an ensemble of young, attractive, female actors here.

SPACEBALLS (BLU-RAY) The 25th Anniversary Edition

SPACEBALLS (BLU

As a sci-fi parody this uneven comedy isn't Mel Brooks' finest work, but that's not to say it is not without its pleasantly juvenile merits. Sadly, however, this anniversary packaging doesn't offer much not already presented in the 2009 BD release, making it seem somewhat pointless.

BARACK OBAMA: FROM HIS CHILDHOOD TO THE PRESIDENCY

BARACK OBAMA: F

A repackaging of a biography of Barack Obama that includes some superficial updates to attempt relevance for its release just prior to the 2012 Presidential election. Not a good effort from A&E on this. A fantastic American story of an American President deserves better.

THE DEVIL'S NEEDLE AND OTHER TALES OF VICE AND REDEMPTION (BLU-RAY)

THE DEVIL'S NEE

None of these films is a masterpiece, nor are they in the best shape after almost a century of neglect. Nevertheless, they're extraordinary time capsules of a more liberal era.

DAVID LEAN DIRECTS NOEL COWARD (BLU-RAY) Brief Encounter, Blithe Spirit, In Which We Serve, This Happy Breed

DAVID LEAN DIRE

Criterion's Blu-Ray boxset of four David Lean/Noel Coward films from the 1940s is a winner on all fronts. The films are a varied lot in terms of storylines - ranging from war's brutalities to family drama to playful ghosts to extramarital affairs, but each are awash in Coward's raw wordplay and Lean's visual talents.

Recommended.

BURKE & HARE (BLU-RAY)

BURKE & HARE (B

This is a curiosity, if nothing else. It is a fairly straightforward recitation of the legend of those famous 1800s-era-Scotland/dead-body-sellers William Burke and William Hare, mixed with some tired attempts at humor and frequent nudity.
