New Releases for December 10

Thanks to everyone who came out and made our 25th Anniversary weekend so spectacular! On to the next thing, though... so let's have a look at this week's set of new releases.

3D BLU = Available for rent on lovely 3D Blu-ray, though you must have a 3D TV to experience the full glory

We're super excited this week for the release of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special DAY OF THE DOCTOR (@ BLU 3D SALE), already out after airing just a few weeks ago. Featuring every incarnation of the Doctor in one way or another, it's a typically great adventure story and a fitting tribute to the history of the series.

 

Who would've thought they'd get to a FAST & FURIOUS 6 (@ BLU SALE)? Equally improbably, it might even be the best one. This installment finds the crew taking down an international terrorist planning to steal a doomsday device and sell it to the highest bidder. The final chase in this one takes place on a seemingly endless runway and might be the car chase equivalent of the space battle at the end of RETURN OF THE JEDI.

RIP Paul Walker

 

Local filmmaker Lynn Shelton also has a new one out this week. TOUCHY FEELY(@ BLU SALE) stars Rosemarie DeWitt as a massage therapist who suffers a mental breakdown after moving in with her boyfriend, causing her to recoil from physical contact. Maybe it's called Occupational Irony Disorder. It's also common among psychotherapists who can't fix their own emotional problems.

 

As for the rest, make sure you catch the following: Ken Loach's caper comedy ANGELS' SHARE. Breakdancing tournament movie BATTLE OF THE YEAR. Billy Bob Thornton's latest directorial effort JAYNE MANSFIELD'S CAR. Classic Spaghetti Western THE BIG GUNDOWN (@ BLU SALE). Giallo-inspired thriller BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO (@ SALE). Award-winning Danish drama THE HUNT (@ BLU SALE). Alain Resnais' latest film YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHIN' YET (@ SALE). STONE ROSES: MADE OF STONE (@ BLU SALE), about the British rock band. SIGHTSEERS, a thriller comedy from the UK about a couple on a road trip/killing spree. We've got the final season of FUTURAMA (@ BLU SALE). There's classic Chuck Norris vehicle THE OCTAGON (@ BLU SALE). And for the kids we've got DESPICABLE ME 2 (@ BLU 3D SALE) and the 50th Anniversary of MARY POPPINS (@ BLU SALE). 

From the heroes at The Criterion Collection and director Martin Scorsese comes MARTIN SCORSESE'S WORLD CINEMA PROJECT (@ BLU SALE), a six-movie dual-format DVD/Blu-ray set featuring rare classics of international film: DRY SUMMER, THE HOUSEMAID, REDES, A RIVER CALLED TITAS, TOUKI BOUKI and TRANCES.

And don't forget MAN OF TAI CHI. Keanu Reeves directed a martial arts movie? Turns out it's pretty good, and he even plays the bad guy, the ringleader of an underground fighting tournament who tries to corrupt a young fighter. Fantastic fight sequences make this a must-see for fans. Check out the trailer.
