BOURNE & more New Releases for December 11

It’s another epic week here at Scarecrow, with lots of new Blu-rays, TV shows, films from the UK and Korea, and several titles that would make excellent gifts for the film fans on your list. Not listed here are a bunch of new additions to our Holiday sections, including copies of our video clip show VHSXMAS II which recently played at Grand Illusion Cinema. Come browse the seasonal sections for the new stuff (suggested browsing beverage: Egg Nog Latte from VHSpresso), and here's the list of most everything else new today:

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!  It's BACK!

 

THE BOURNE LEGACY—Jeremy Renner is Aaron Cross, a product of the same top secret government program that gave us Jason Bourne, who takes up the cat-and-mouse action where Mr. Bourne left it.   BLU  @   SALE

 

GIRLS: SEASON 1—Lena Dunham follows up her indie hit film Tiny Furniture with this HBO series. As our colleague Paige notes in the current issue of City Arts, “what is best about Girls is the departure from the idealized fantasy world of TV shows about young women: the characters are modern, imperfect, hilarious and, most of all, relatable.”   BLU  SALE

 

TED—Boy wishes teddy bear could talk, teddy bear magically comes alive, boy and teddy grow up to be pot-smoking slackers with relationship issues. It’s filled with plenty of what future Academy Awards host Seth MacFarlane does best--crude jokes and pop culture references--but is genuine enough to come together as more than just innuendos and Knight Rider ringtones.   BLU  SALE

 

MIAMI CONNECTION—Much thanks to the good people at Drafthouse Films for unearthing this almost-forgotten mid-80s oddity for all to enjoy. Our colleague Spenser says in City Arts, “Now everybody can dig the delirious story of a martial arts tussle between a keytar-banging synth-rock band called Dragon Sound and an evil gang of cocaine-dealing, motorcycle riding ninjas. Snobs and snoots may proclaim this to be ‘so bad it’s good,’ but they are only half right. This is a one-of-a-kind mindbender." WARNING: A guy gets his head cut off in this trailer.   BLU SALE

 

THE STORY OF FILM—Film historian Mark Cousins’ leads us on a 15-part journey through cinema, starting with the silents and on to the digital era. Have a pen and paper ready, as you’ll likely double or triple your “to view” list as the series goes on. It would be a great gift for anyone with an interest in the movies.  SALE

 

THE FOLLOWING and THE QATSI TRILOGY—The Criterion Collection presents two new titles: The first is The Following, Christopher Nolan’s 1999 noir following a writer’s psychological journey through London. The second is The Qatsi Trilogy, or Koyaanisqats, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi. If you’re unfamiliar with this trio of films from experimental film director Godfrey Reggio, our colleague Mark says in City Arts that they “dreamily and wordlessly survey the world’s landscape and citizens and call into question our relationship with technology and industry.” The set includes Reggio’s 1992 short Animal Mundi. Don’t forget, ALL our Criterion & Eclipse series titles are ON SALE through the end of the year.   BLU  @   Click the photos to purchase online.
