New Releases for October 7

New Release Tuesday is upon us once more! We've got a ton of great new titles in this week. A quick reminder before we start the list: remember that Scarecrow will CLOSE EARLY this Saturday at 6pm, and then we'll re-open as the new Non-Profit Scarecrow on Tuesday, 10/14. That's just a week from today! 

Alright, with that out of the way, let's have a look at the new stuff.

 

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)

First up is the absolute funniest thing you're likely to see all year, and one of the best new animated shows to come around in a very long time. RICK AND MORTY (@ BLU SALE) is basically like if BACK TO THE FUTURE were NSFW. When Mad Scientist Rick Sanchez returns to his estranged family and moves into the garage, he starts taking his grandson Morty on all sorts of insane, hilarious Sci-Fi adventures. Poor Morty is endlessly stuck cramming alien seeds up his butt, mutating into awful monsters, or even witnessing his own death, while his dysfunctional family barely even notices and Uncle Rick just tells him to suck it up. Produced by Dan Harmon from COMMUNITY, this is pretty much the greatest show ever (at least right now).

 

Speaking of loopy sci-fi adventures, we also got in the seriously under-appreciated EDGE OF TOMORROW (@ BLU 3D SALE), which has been weirdly retitled LIVE DIE REPEAT by the studio. Based on a Japanese novella, it's the story of a cowardly Army PR flack (Tom Cruise) who inadvertently winds up in combat against a vicious alien horde. After he's killed in battle, he wakes up the day before the fight and is forced to relive the same events over and over until he can figure out a way to stop the intergalactic invaders. This is a really inventive, very funny action film, and even if you're not down for another alien invasion movie you get the added bonus of watching Tom Cruise get killed again and again in increasingly creative ways.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: FAMILY GUY creator Seth MacFarlane's cowboy comedy A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST (@ BLU SALE). Jon Hamm tries to turn cricket players into baseball players in MILLION DOLLAR ARM (BLU). A young comedian deals with an unwanted pregnancy in OBVIOUS CHILD. Sergio Leone's Mexican Revolution western DUCK, YOU SUCKER aka A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE (@ BLU SALE) finally hits blu-ray along with a remastered THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY (@ BLU SALE). And great friend of Scarecrow Monte Hellman's underseen PHANTOM OF THE OPERA riff IGUANA (@ BLU SALE) gets a long overdue release.

We also got in a host of catalog blu-rays, like a new 35th Anniversary disc of ALIEN (@ BLU SALE), classic musicals OKLAHOMA (@ BLU SALE), THE KING AND I (@ BLU SALE), and SOUTH PACIFIC (@ BLU SALE). There's a new box set for GONE WITH THE WIND (@ BLU SALE). And for the kids there's ADVENTURE TIME: SEASON 4 (@ BLU SALE), THE NEVERENDING STORY II: THE NEXT CHAPTER (@ BLU SALE), a new blu-ray of SLEEPING BEAUTY (@ BLU SALE), and the animated adventure JACK AND THE CUCKOO-CLOCK HEART (@ BLU SALE).
