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.

 

First up there's ABOUT TIME (@ BLU SALE), a new romantic drama from the guys what brung you LOVE, ACTUALLY. This one involves a young man who discovers that he can travel through time at will! It's a pretty amazing superpower, to be sure, one which he puts to the not at all creepy use of getting a girlfriend. Hope that works out for him.

Then there's big time Oscar nominee DALLAS BUYERS CLUB (@ BLU SALE), which stars the inimitable Matthew McConaughey as Ron Woodruff, a largely distasteful alcoholoic homophobic drug abuser who discovers he has AIDS and who, out of survival, began illegally supplying the local community with then-experimental antiviral mediaction. A lot of this story has been fictionalized but it's a fascinating one nevertheless. Jared Leto and Jennifer Garner co-star.

On the documentary front we've got CUTIE AND THE BOXER (@ BLU SALE), about famed artist Ushio Shinohara and his wife and assistant, Noriko. Shinohara is often referred to as a "boxing painter" since he dips boxing gloves in paint and then punches the canvas. Noriko, after a tumultuous 40 years of marriage, is beginning to find her husband a bit overbearing, and she struggles to find her own identity.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: The heroes at the Criterion Collection have released a new Blu-ray of JULES AND JIM (@ BLU SALE), Francois Truffaut's classic tragic romance. There's a new ROMEO & JULIET (BLU) on the shelves. Scream Factory has new collector's edition Blu-rays of 80's cult hits NIGHT OF THE DEMONS (@ BLU SALE) and WITCHBOARD (@ BLU SALE). Also on the Blu-ray tip there are new Anniversary versions of DEATH WISH (@ BLU SALE), INN OF THE SIXTH HAPPINESS (@ BLU SALE), the eternal classic ROBOCOP (@ BLU SALE) and NAPOLEON DYNAMITE (@ BLU SALE). For the kids (or maybe just the kid in you) we've got FREE BIRDS (@ BLU SALE) and JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR (@ BLU SALE). And in addition to all the British Import TV (scroll down for that full list) we also have the first season of Starz's WHITE QUEEN (@ BLU SALE), wherein three warrior women vie for the throne of England.

And remember to save room for ESCAPE PLAN (@ BLU SALE), which finally sates your previously unquenched desire to see Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone team up to break out of a high-tech maximum security secret prison! No kidding, Arnold puts in one of his most enjoyable performances ever in this one.
