New Releases for September 30

Happy New Release Tuesday Everybody! We've got a relatively short list of new stuff in this week, but that little stack is positively jammed with great titles. 

 

BLU = Also available to rent on Blu-ray disc

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 is Sergio Leone's epic gangster film ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA (@ BLU SALE). Leone's well known for amazing Spaghetti Westerns like THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY and ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, but this film is his only non-western. It's a sprawling story that traces four friends, Jewish immigrants, from the early 1920s, through the depression and the rise of organized crime, all the way up to the 1960s. Long ill-treated on home video and released in various edited versions, this new release is a restored, full 251-minute Extended Director's Cut. It's sure to be one of the best home video titles to come out this year.

 

On the flip side of the epic coin, get ready for another staggering display of Bayhem with the nearly 3-hour TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION (@ BLU 3D SALE). Look, at this point you know what you're getting into with a Michael Bay TRANSFORMERS movie. For what it's worth, this is one of the best ones, with a new cast headed by Mark Wahlberg. More importantly, it has Dinobots. That's right. Optimus Prime holding a flaming sword riding a robot dinosaur. You either want to see that or not. And it looks particularly good in 3D at home.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Two releases from the Heroes at the Criterion Collection, Fassbinder's ALI: FEAR EATS THE SOUL (@ BLU SALE) and the WWII drama SUNDAYS AND CYBELE (@ BLU SALE). Local filmmaker Megan Griffiths' new film LUCKY THEM (@ SALE). Hard-bitten Noir COLD IN JULY (@ BLU SALE). Food truck mania abounds in CHEF (@ BLU SALE). Witness the further adventures of the first animated sex symbol in BETTY BOOP: ESSENTIAL COLLECTION VOL. 4 (@ BLU SALE). There's also a great lineup of cult films new to blu-ray with Lee Majors versus a Killer Fish in the aptly named KILLERFISH (@ BLU SALE), insanely dorky and awesome 80s fantasy KRULL (@ BLU SALE), the death defiers of STUNT SQUAD (@ BLU SALE), Cruise and Pitt as sexy bloodsuckers in INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE (@ BLU SALE), and last but certainly not least, the LEPRECHAUN COMPLETE MOVIE COLLECTION (@ BLU SALE). We've also got Shelley Winters with a machine gun in BLOODY MAMA (@ BLU SALE). Animation fans will want to pick up legendary anime GHOST IN THE SHELL (@ BLU SALE) for its 25th anniversary. On the TV front, the Jack Bauer Power Hour is back for 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY (BLU)!
