Scarecrow VideoBlogurn:uuid:588c0af8-ce33-4b39-a267-69abdfb266e11969-12-31T19:33:34ZNew Releases for July 22urn:uuid:2cf5926b-861e-46b0-86bb-2a8eab5ea7111969-12-31T19:33:34ZHappy Tuesday Everybody! We've got another haul of lovely New Releases for you, as usual, so let's get to it.   BLU = Also available to rent on Blu-ray disc 3D BLU = Available for rent on lovely 3D Blu-ray, though you must have a 3D TV to experience the full glory @ = Available for sale in the store (but we can special order anything, see us for details) SALE = Click this link to purchase select titles from our online store.   First up is a slow-burn indie revenge drama called BLUE RUIN (@ BLU SALE). When a homeless man finds out that the person responsible for murdering his parents has been released from prison, he sets about meting out his own justice, only it's not quite as simple as he assumed, and he ends up having to protect his estranged family from a cycle of violence he helped to bring about. This is less a twisty thriller like, say, BLOOD SIMPLE, than it is a quiet character study of a guy in way over his head. Gorgeously photographed and with a terrific lead performance from the largely unknown Macon Blair, this is definitely one of the best movies of the year.   Then, the heroes at the Criterion Collection have released a wonderful box set of films by French master filmmaker Jacques Demy. Demy was largely the opposite of his new-wave comrades, forgoing a lot of formal experimentation or political statements in favor of lovely fantasies inspired by Hollywood musicals and folktales, and he was fascinated by themes of chance and star-crossed love. THE ESSENTIAL JACQUES DEMY (@ BLU SALE) has six of his films, BAY OF ANGELS, CHAMBRE EN VILLE, DONKEY SKIN, LOLA, THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG, and THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT. This box set is absolutely packed with extras and you couldn't ask for a better way to enjoy these beautiful dreams. Here's a trailer for THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG, perhaps his most famous film.   And finally there's the one, the only, THE LEGEND OF BILLIE JEAN (@ BLU SALE). One of the great youth movies of the 1980's it's also an incredible feminist film about a young woman who refuses to back down after she thwarts an older man's sexual advances and is framed for robbing him. Sort of an early THELMA & LOUISE, with a killer soundtrack led by the amazing Pat Benatar. One of Scarecrow's favorites!    As for the rest, don't forget to pick up the following: Criterion rereleases Norwegian thriller INSOMNIA (@ BLU SALE) to blu-ray. The 1970's animated "Lord of the Rings" movies, THE HOBBIT (@ SALE) and RETURN OF THE KING (@ SALE), are back in print.

And the famous 80s TV miniseries SHOGUN (@ BLU SALE), with Richard Chamberlain and the legendary Toshiro Mifune is out on blu as well.

What begins as a tense, enigmatic thriller gradually becomes more abstract as our alien protagonist begins to take an interest in her prey, and the film transforms into a treatise on female sexuality, not just in our daily lives but in cinema itself. Under no circumstances should you miss this one.   Then, the heroes at the Criterion Collection have unleashed one of David Cronenberg's most famous films, SCANNERS (@ BLU SALE). A sinister government think-tank battles an even more sinister army of psychic warriors for control of a powerful telekinetic man who might be able to destroy them all. You've probably heard of this this one for its legendary head-exploding scene, but if that's all you know about it, you're in for one of the best low-budget horror films ever made. Criterion has packed this disc with extras, including two of Cronenberg's early movies.   As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Those Criterion geniuses have also released Robert Bresson's PICKPOCKET (@ BLU SALE). Giant rats have invaded Canada in DEADLY EYES (@ BLU SALE). A pair of Lewis Milestone war classics, ARMORED ATTACK! (@ BLU SALE) and ARCH OF TRIUMPH (@ BLU SALE), land on blu-ray, as does William Witney's I ESCAPED FROM DEVIL'S ISLAND (@ BLU SALE), starring Jim Brown. Warner Archive has some vintage French sleuthing with it's ARSENE LUPIN DOUBLE FEATURE (@ SALE). There's also a 4-pack of JERRY LEWIS FILM FAVORITES (@ SALE), very big in France as well.  For the kids there's RIO 2 (@ BLU 3D SALE), and on the TV front we've got ORPHAN BLACK: SEASON 2 (@ BLU SALE), HELL ON WHEELS: SEASON 3 (BLU), and everyone's favorite blaxploitation hero BLACK DYNAMITE (@ BLU SALE) in his show's first season.

The film includes interviews with Jodorowsky himself, now well into his 80s, and he depicts the effort as less a film production and more of a spiritual quest. Featuring tantalizing excerpts from the massive preproduction and design work, compiled into a gigantic 1,000-plus page book that was distributed to major studios at the time, this film isn't so much the story of a film that never got made as it is an ode to the power (and limits) of creativity and art itself. If you're a film fan, you owe it to yourself to check this out.    Next is Lars von Trier's epic, two-part, 5-hour sexploitation/satire/provocation NYMPHOMANIAC VOLUMES I & II (@ BLU SALE). Charlotte Gainsbourg plays Joe, who we first encounter beaten an bloody in a back alley. She's rescued and taken in by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård). She's a self-described nymphomaniac (hence the clever title), and while she recovers she tell him her sordid life story, recounting any and every sexual encounter she can think of. It's as explicit as you've heard, although mileages may vary as to just how shocking it actually is. Nevertheless, it's a potent and confrontational look at misogyny from von Trier.   Speaking of not for the faint of heart, get ready for THE RAID 2 (@ BLU SALE), the sequel to THE RAID: REDEMPTION. It picks up immediately after the first film to find our hero Rama (Iko Uwais) going deep, deep, deep undercover to shut down Jakarta's rampant corruption, only to find himself trapped in a vicious gang war. It's two and a half hours of punishing Indonesian martial arts, and some of the best action anyone's seen in years. Do not miss it.   As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: STAGE FRIGHT (BLU) is a terrific spin on the slasher movie...this one's also a musical. A social worker investigates a really messed-up family in THE BABY (@ BLU SALE). A grown man enters a spelling bee in BAD WORDS (BLU). Severin brings us a couple more horror classics with BLOODY MOON (@ BLU SALE) and BLOODY BIRTHDAY (@ BLU SALE). An alternate version of elderly hijinks with BAD GRANDPA .5 (BLU). Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan have a second honeymoon in LE WEEK-END (@ BLU SALE). Get some hilarious killer-alligator action in LAKE PLACID (@ BLU SALE). There's classic gothic romance THE LOST MOMENT (@ BLU SALE). William Powell has a wild vacation in MR. PEABODY AND THE MERMAID (@ BLU SALE). A group of National Guardsmen run afoul of some Cajuns in SOUTHERN COMFORT (@ BLU SALE). Max Ophuls' pitch-black noir CAUGHT (@ BLU SALE) arrives on Blu-ray, as does George Pal's 1960 version of THE TIME MACHINE (@ BLU SALE), and the existential crime masterpiece POINT BLANK (@ BLU SALE), with the great Lee Marvin. WATERMARK (@ BLU SALE) is the new documentary from the director of MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES. And on the TV front, there's VICIOUS: SEASON 1, starring Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, and the Inspector Morse prequel ENDEAVOUR: SERIES 2 (@ BLU SALE).

The film was considered so authentic at the time that Deodato was actually charged with murdering the actors on camera, and he had to produce them in court in order to clear his name! Certainly not for the squeamish!   Then there's the latest from renowned documentarian Errol Morris. THE UNKNOWN KNOWN (@ BLU SALE) is essentially a feature-length interview with former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Much like Morris' FOG OF WAR, which was about Rober McNamara, this features Morris directly questioning Rumsfeld about his entire career, his most famous decisions, and, most importantly, the mountain of documents he produced during his tenure, often using very carefully chosen language. Those looking for a contrite retrospective from a man who regrets his more questionable decisions will be disappointed, but what comes through is a portrait of a careful, often stubborn strategist with a deceptively clear conscience.   As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: A more recent found-footage horror film, AFFLICTED (BLU). Delightful Indian comedy and indie hit THE LUNCHBOX (@ BLU SALE). John Waters' incredible rockabilly musical CRY-BABY (@ BLU SALE), starring Johnny Depp. New from Scream Factory: THE FINAL TERROR (@ BLU SALE)...seriously, why do people ever go camping? There's the 1955 musical KISMET (@ BLU SALE) on Blu. On Wednesday we'll have GOOD SAM, OPERATION PETTICOAT and SO THIS IS NEW YORK from Olive Films. And Don Draper and Harry Potter (that is, Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe) finally meet in the BBC miniseries YOUNG DOCTOR'S NOTEBOOK (@ SALE). For the kids there's LEGEND OF KORRA: BOOK 2 - SPIRITS (BLU). And don't forget to scroll down for a full list of all the Manufacture-on-Demand titles we got in from Fox and Warner Archive.

Remember, all of our screenings are ABSOLUTELY FREE! Just remember to pick up some beer or snacks or other refreshments from VHSPresso! Right click on the image for a version you can save.   Music Mondays: Classic Chinese Musicals Mondays are usually reserved for Music-related material, but we decided to do something a little different this month. Obviously we love the Shaw Brothers and their dozens and dozens of martial arts films, Kung Fu wasn't their only jam. They also produced tons of musicals, many of them in a style of Chinese opera called Huangmei. Traditionally in these films male leading roles were also portrayed by women, and they are massively heightened melodramas that operate on an entirely different level from what Western audiences are used to. So every Monday at 7pm in July you'll get another of one of these little-seen gems. On the 7th is THE LOVE ETERNE, directed by the great Han Hsiang Li. This is probably the most famous of the Huangmei films, about a young girl who disguises herself as a boy in order to go off to school to further her education. There she falls in love with a handsome student, but she can't reveal the truth about her gender. Of course, it wouldn't be much of a film if this romance weren't somehow star-crossed.  On the 14th, it's DREAM OF THE RED CHAMBER, starring a young Bridget Lin, who would go on to be one of Hong Kong's greatest superstars (and one of HK cinema's most beautiful actresses). She plays a young boy who is tricked by his duplicitous family into forsaking his true love and marrying another. It doesn't work out so well, so bring some kleenex. On the 21st, we've got the perfect movie for anyone who loved the old Disney film MULAN. Yep, the Shaw Brothers made a musical version of the story way back in the 60s. It's called THE LADY GENERAL HUA MULAN, and it's terrific.  And finally on Monday the 28th, we have one of legendary martial arts filmmaker King Hu's first features, THE STORY OF SUE SAN, which involves a rich man who falls in love with a prostitute, only to have his life fall apart as a consequence.    Wednesday Night Kaiju Classics We've got a lineup of classic Godzilla films running every Wednesday in July. If you're only familiar with the original classic or this summer's remake, you're in for a treat, as we've chosen a handful of the most underseen and stylish entries in the franchise. All of these shows begin at 7pm. On the 9th it's GODZILLA VS. MONSTER ZERO, which features the great Three-Headed Monster, King Ghidorah, as a pawn of alien invaders from Planet X. The 16th holds a really underappreciated one, GODZILLA VS. THE SEA MONSTER, which finds the big G taking on Ebirah, a giant crab, as well as a ruthless terrorist group building nuclear bombs on Mothra's home island!  On the 23rd we've got maybe the best Godzilla movie since the original 1954 film. GODZILLA VS. THE SMOG MONSTER is an incredibly stylish, psychedelic monster mash with a strong environmental message. Godzilla takes on a beast made of pure pollution, and the movie comes complete with trippy animated interludes and other bizarre stuff like a James Bond-inspired opening credits sequence. Also one of the few Godzilla movies to actually show the dead bodies left in the wake of the monster fights. And finally on the 30th it's GODZILLA VS. MEGALON. For all of you MST3K fans, this is the one featuring Jet Jaguar! Definitely one of the weirdest entries, it also features some of the most exciting (and really dangerous-looking) fight scenes.   Thursdays: Even More Vintage Japanese Sci-Fi We've got a trilogy of fantastic Japanese sci-fi films on Thursdays at 7pm this month. First up on the 3rd is the legendary THE MYSTERIANS, which features an invasion of Earth by aliens determined to steal Japan's women! Look out for the giant robot! Then on the 10th it's BATTLE FROM OUTER SPACE, a loose sequel of sorts to THE MYSTERIANS. It's not just a clever title, either. And then it's the final entry in the series, THE WAR IN SPACE. Definitely a step up from a plain ol' battle.   More Saturday Night Fright Hole!! Saturdays are always great for horror movies, and Rich's Saturday Night FrightHole never disappoints. We're starting off on the 5th of July with something a little patriotic, UNCLE SAM! He Wants You...Dead!! The rest of the month is devoted to the stupid teenagers that decide to go camping every summer...and inevitably end up hacked to death by a crazed maniac. On the 12th it's WILDERNESS, a British film about a bunch of juvenile delinquents who get sent to a "survival" camp (take note of the scare quotes). On the 19th we're screening SUMMER CAMP NIGHTMARE, sort of like the slasher version of that "Simpsons" episode with Kamp Krusty. A bunch of desperate campers revolt against their cruel counselors!  And finally on the 26th it's the classic SLEEPAWAY CAMP!  All Saturday Night shows begin at 8pm.   SPECIAL SCREENINGS AND EVENTS As usual, we've got a handful of one-off events and special screenings too. On Sunday the 6th, the Cinema Dames of the Grand Illusion are back for their monthly meetup. This time they've selected FRANCES HA, one of the very best movies of 2013. It screens at 5pm. Thursday the 17th at 7pm, Local Filmmaker and Artist Captain Chambers brings his Holding Fast Film Tour to Scarecrow Video. He'll be screening a few of his short films before donating them to our vast collection. Click HERE for a link to his Facebook Event page. The following night on Friday the 18th at 8pmwe've got another Board Game Night, hosted by VHSPresso's Thom! Come make new friends and immediately lose them to Monopoly! And Last but certainly not Least, the Sci-Fi Commons group is hosting their monthly meetup on Friday the 25th at 8pm with James Cameron's original classic THE TERMINATOR! And Don't forget: Every Tuesday is GEEKS WHO DRINK TRIVIA at 7pm. Make sure you get here early to grab a good spot. Check out the full calendar for all the other great movies we're screening this month, Hope to see you at some or ALL of these shows!  Matt Lynchleevancleef@gmail.com
