PORTLANDIA: SEASON ONE—Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen’s sketch comedy show gives a spirited ribbing to our Oregon counterparts.   BLUSALE

 

THE HANGOVER PART II—“It happened again…”  BLU  @

 

THE HELP—The film adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's novel features an incredible ensemble cast, headed by Oscar-worthy performances by Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis.  BLU  @  SALE

 

COWBOYS & ALIENS—Harrison Ford. Daniel Craig. Cowboys. Aliens. Need we say more?  BLU  @

 

THE DEBT—Helen Mirren and Tom Wilkinson star in this political thriller as former Mossad agents dealing with aftermath of a hit on a Nazi war criminal thirty years earlier. BLU @

 

FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS—Reasons I want to see this movie (not necessarily in order of importance): 1) Written & directed by Will Gluck (Easy A). 2) Co-stars Patricia Clarkson and Richard Jenkins. 3) I just can’t quit that Justin Timberlake.

 

THE SIMPSONS: SEASON 14—This season includes a trip to rock & roll fantasy camp run by the Rolling Stones. BLU  @  SALE

 

THE SMURFS—As much eye-rolling as the trailer caused me, I must admit the casting of Hank Azaria as Gargamel is smart, and Neil Patrick Harris seems to make everything better.

 

MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: VOLUME XXII—The latest collection has Mighty Jack, The Brute Man, Time of The Apes, and The Violent Years. SALE

 

DESIGN FOR LIVING—Gary Cooper, Fredric March, and Miriam Hopkins star in director Ernst Lubitsch & screenwriter Ben Hecht’s adaptation of the Noel Coward play. In the current issue of City Arts, our colleague Spenser says it’s, “perhaps the purest example of the ‘The Lubitsch Touch’ as well as a surprisingly sophisticated and delightfully risqué Pre-Code film…”  BLU SALE
