New Releases for March 27

This week brings the highly anticipated arrival of a timeless classic in high definition Blu-ray. I am obviously referring to Ernest Scared Stupid; but we also have UK imports, a film written by, directed by, and starring James Franco, an Academy Award nominee for Best Picture, and much more.  Here’s the list:

 

BLU = Available for rent on Blu-ray disc

@ = Available for sale in our store

SALE = Available for sale from our online mercantile

 

A DANGEROUS METHOD—Michael Fassbender stars as an up-and-coming psychoanalyst named Carl Jung who takes on a troubled, neurotic patient (Keira Knightly) and debates with colleague Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) in David Cronenberg’s psychological (obviously) drama.  BLU  @  SALE
 

 

EXTREMELY LOUD & INCREDIBLY CLOSE—Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel left me crumbled in a sobbing heap. I wasn’t going to subject myself to a possibly poor adaptation of something so profound, but then Stephen Daldry’s (The Hours, The Reader) film was nominated for Best Picture. Luckily, the movie is saved by excellent performances by Viola Davis, Jeffery Wright, Max von Sydow, and young Thomas Horn.  BLU   @

 

IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY--A take on Romeo and Juliet, set during the war between Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, written and directed by Angelina Jolie.  BLU

 

CONFUCIUS—Chow Yun Fat stars as the legendary teacher/military leader/hero in this action-packed biopic.  BLU  @

 

MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: XXIII—The latest collection of MST3K episodes has Castle of Fu Manchu, Code Name: Diamond Head, King Dinosaur, and Last of the Wild Horses.  @  SALE

 

SOUTH PARK: SEASON 15—All 14 uncensored episodes, including my favorite, “Royal Pudding.” Fun fact: For many of our staff members, South Park has been on the air for over half their lives (don’t even get us started on The Simpsons).  BLU  @

 

A NIGHT TO REMEMBER--The Criterion Collection presents Roy Ward Baker’s 1958 dramatic interpretation of Titanic’s last hours. “Featuring remarkably restrained performances, A Night to Remember is cinema’s subtlest and best dramatization of this monumental twentieth-century catastrophe.” This means there’s none of that “I’m KING OF THE WORLD!” business (no offense, Leo, Kate, Mr. Cameron).  BLU   @  SALE
