42—Chadwick Boseman stars as Jackie Robinson in this powerful biopic, co-starring Harrison Ford as Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey. It’s the perfect movie to watch over the All-Star break.   BLU   @

 

ORPHAN BLACK: SEASON 1—BBC America’s cult favorite sci-fi drama stars Tatiana Maslany as a young woman who discovers she has multiple clones out in the world. Patton Oswalt will lead the Twitter outrage if she doesn’t get nominated for an Emmy.  BLU  SALE

 

BULLET TO THE HEAD—The Warriors and 48 Hours director Walter Hill’s first movie in a decade stars Sylvester Stallone as a hitman who teams up with a cop (Sung Kang of the Fast & Furious franchise) to save his daughter from a gang of bad guys (led by Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa). Matt says in City Arts that while it doesn’t bring anything new to the buddy cop genre, it does “has the gruff, no-nonsense, unpretentious demeanor of the best ‘80s beat-em-ups.”  BLU  @ 

 

HERMAN’S HOUSE—The remarkable story of the collaboration between New York artist Jackie Sumell and Herman Wallace, a prison inmate who has been in solitary confinement longer than anyone in the United States. Sumell wrote to Wallace to ask what kind of house a man who has been confined to a six-foot-by-nine-foot cell for over 30 years dreams of, and over time makes it come to life.  @

 

EVIL DEAD—No one was optimistic about a reboot of Sam Raimi’s original greatness, but many of the doubters came away pleasantly surprised--or in this case, pleasantly disturbed. Be warned, though. Apparently the special effects are so good they made even the horror vets squirm.  BLU  SALE

 

LORD OF THE FLIES—The Criterion Collection presents Peter Brook’s 1963 adaptation of William Golding’s novel-we-all-read-in-school (If you didn’t, go do that now. It’s a short book. We’ll wait.). The newly restored release has a bunch of extras, including commentary with Brook and audio recordings of Golding reading from the book.  BLU  @  SALE
