First up is a weird one we've never heard of. Apparently in the 1960s a group of four kind of funny looking hipsters from Liverpool, England formed a band called "The Beatles" that became pretty popular. They got so famous that teenagers would become completely hysterical at the sight of them, fainting or chasing them down the street. Then someone had the bright idea to make a movie about them, and the good folks at the Criterion Collection have released it. A HARD DAY'S NIGHT (@ BLU SALE) sounds interesting, maybe it's worth checking out if you like that sort of thing.

 

Then there's ENEMY (@ BLU SALE). Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a meek Toronto college professor whose life spirals out of control when he encounters his exact double (also Jake Gyllenhaal). How come when people meet their dopplegangers it never goes well? Anyway, two Jake Gyllenhaals aren't even the scariest thing about this pretty scary movie. We'd especially recommend that arachnophobes stay far away from this one.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: there's another helping of slo-mo Spartan bloodletting in 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE (@ BLU 3D SALE). Colin Farrell stars in the modern-day fairytale A WINTER'S TALE (BLU). Two brothers on either side of the law face off in BLOOD TIES (BLU). The SCREAMERS (@ BLU SALE) are actually just people turned inside-out. Yuck. We've got Joseph Losey's WWI drama KING & COUNTRY (@ BLU SALE). Another serving of Ozploitation with serial killer thriller WOLF CREEK 2 (@ BLU SALE). And Max Fleischer's 1939 animated GULLIVER'S TRAVELS (BLU).

On the documentary front there's ANITA: SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER, about Anita Hill (of the Clarence Thomas sexual harrassment case), and FRACKNATION (@ BLU SALE), investigating the consequences of everyone's favorite natural gas extraction technique.

We've also got a ton of new TV on DVD. New seasons of THE BOONDOCKS (@ SALE) and THE KILLING. There's also a BOONDOCKS: COMPLETE SERIES (@ SALE) set. Showtime's series about pioneering sex reasearch MASTERS OF SEX (@ BLU SALE), and the excellent US remake of Danish series THE BRIDGE (@ BLU SALE).
