First up is a remastered box set of Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti western films, THE MAN WITH NO NAME TRILOGY (@ BLU SALE). Three fantastic movies that kicked off an entire genre! Clint Eastwood (of course) stars in A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, and the legendary THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY, along with actors like Eli Wallach, Lee Van Cleef (my hero) and the great Gian Maria Volonte. Leone's pulpy, darkly comic westerns are filled with incredible music courtesy of Ennio Morricone, gorgeous widescreen photography, lighting fast editing and brutal violence. You owe it to yourself to pick up this set.

 

We've also got a new blu-ray of cult hit RAVENOUS (@ BLU SALE), a bizarre comedy/horror/western from 1999 starring Guy Pearce and Robert Carlyle. Pearce plays a soldier in the Mexican American War, who, after surviving a horrible massacre by hiding under a pile of dead bodies finds himself exiled to a remote outpost in the snowy Sierra Nevada mountains. Once there, Carlyle's character appears with a terrifying story involving murder and cannibalism. To say more would ruin things, but more than just a horror film this is a sly commentary on American manifest destiny and the insatiable greed of capitalism. Sounds weird, right? You'll have to see it for yourself.

 

We also got in Anime sensation ATTACK ON TITAN (@ BLU SALE). It's the first part of the inaugural season of this extremely popular new series, set in a far future in which giant humanoid aliens called Titans have invaded Earth and humanity seeks shelter in an area of the country protected by three enormous walls. That is, until one of the monsters suddenly breaches the outermost barrier! 

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: True military story LONE SURVIVOR (@ BLU SALE). The remake of the future of law enforcement, ROBOCOP (@ BLU SALE). Gina Carano tries to retrieve her kidnapped husband in IN THE BLOOD (BLU). 

New blu-ray's include Mike Nichols' THE BIRDCAGE (@ BLU SALE). The cleverly titled DEATH BED: THE BED THAT EATS (@ BLU SALE). Francis Ford Coppola's directors cut THE OUTSIDERS: THE COMPLETE NOVEL (@ BLU SALE). And a new collector's edition box set of Jerry Lewis' THE NUTTY PROFESSOR (@ BLU SALE). Oh, and yet another cut of Oliver Stone's ALEXANDER (BLU).

On the documentary front, there's HARRY DEAN STANTON: PARTLY FICTION (SALE). UFO conspiracy doc MIRAGE MEN. PLIMPTON!, the life story of George Plimpton, and VIDEO NASTIES: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE, about a string of horror films banned in the UK in the late 1970s.
