PASSION @ BLU SALE

One of the greatest suspense filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma, returns to form with this latest effort, a mystery thriller starring Rachel McAdams and original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Noomi Rapace as competitors in the cutthroat world of advertising. All of the De Palma tropes are here, dream sequences, split screen, long tracking shots and gruesome murders! One of his best.

 

CLEAR HISTORY BLU

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM and SEINFELD creator Larry David is back with this made-for-HBO revenge comedy. After making a fool of himself and losing a fortune to his boss (MAD MEN's Jon Hamm), David embarks on a complicated plan to steal his rival's money and his wife (Kate Hudson). A host of other comic actors like Bill Hader and Michael Keaton (especially hilarious) show up in supporting roles. It's kind of an extra-long episode of CURB but that couldn't possibly be a bad thing!

 

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY (EXTENDED EDITION) @ BLU 3D SALE

Part One of Peter Jackson's return to Middle Earth (in prequel form!) is out now in an even longer Director's Cut! Stretching this single novel out to three films would seem to preclude leaving anything on the cutting room floor, but here we are!

 

So much more great stuff just arrived as well, like the most recent season of MAD MEN (@ BLU SALE). We've got a double feature of original Cinerama films, HOLIDAY) (@ BLU SALE) and SOUTH SEAS ADVENTURE (@ BLU SALE). Historical dramas PARKLAND (BLU), about the JFK assassination, and LOVELACE (BLU) (featuring Amanda Seyfried as DEEP THROAT star Linda Lovelace). D.W. Griffith's epic silent masterpiece INTOLERANCE (@ BLU SALE) is just out in a fantastic new restoration. There's the documentary DECEPTIVE PRACTICE: THE MYSTERIES AND MENTORS OF RICKY JAY (@ SALE)about the famous prestidigitator, and you couldn't possibly forget this past summer's action extravaganza WHITE HOUSE DOWN (BLU), in which Roland Emmerich returns to the scene of his most famous crime against landmarks in INDEPENDENCE DAY.

There's also the JAMES DEAN ULTIMATE COLLECTOR'S EDITION (@ BLU SALE), featuring all three of Dean's feature films (GIANT, REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE and EAST OF EDEN), all three of which are also available individually (click the titles).

We're also really excited about indie filmmaker Andrew Bujalski's newest film COMPUTER CHESS. A comedy of sorts about the strange and possibly metaphysical goings on at an early 80's programming convention, this film is a somewhat experimental look at what happens when technology outstrips its creators' abilities. It was even shot on vintage video cameras, giving it a strange but eerily-accurate period look. Check out the trailer:
