New Releases for November 18

Happy New Release Tuesday Everybody! We've got another stack of great new titles this week.

 

BLU = Also available to rent on Blu-ray disc

@ = Available for sale in the store (but we can special order anything, see us for details)

 

First up, and after a long wait, Disney has finally seen fit to release a few more Studio Ghibli classics to blu-ray. This week we finally get KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE (@ BLU), PRINCESS MONONOKE (@ BLU), and Miyazaki's final masterpiece, THE WIND RISES (@ BLU) (which might even be his best movie ever). It's heartbreaking to learn that Ghibli won't be making any more films, but these classics are so timeless that at the very least we'll be enjoying them for decades. Make sure you grab all three.

 

Then, the Heroes at the Criterion Collection have brought us IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT (@ BLU), Frank Capra's foundational romantic comedy, pretty much the template for every screwball film that followed it. If you haven't seen it, it's the one where Claudette Colbert flashes a little leg to flag down a passing motorist...you know, that clip you see in every Hollywood retrospective documentary. There's a reason this film is in every one of them. It's about time it entered the Criterion Canon.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: We've got a gorgeous new restoration of the German Silent masterpiece THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (@ BLU) Tay-tay and Jonah Hill are back in 22 JUMP STREET (BLU). There's more Capra with 1961's POCKETFUL OF MIRACLES (@ BLU). Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton get busy in AND SO IT GOES (BLU). There's a stack of horror new to blu with George Romero's MONKEY SHINES (@ BLU) as well as his Stephen King adaptation THE DARK HALF (@ BLU), plus PUMPKINHEAD II: BLOOD WINGS (@ BLU) and Bruce Campbell in MOONTRAP (@ BLU). Two new classic Cinerama format releases (presented in Smilevision!), SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD (@ BLU) and SEARCH FOR PARADISE (@ BLU). Two early films from singluar French filmmaker Leos Carax - MAUVAIS SANG (@ BLU) and BOY MEETS GIRL (@ BLU). Hal Ashby's groundbreaking post-Vietnam drama COMING HOME (@ BLU) lands on blu-ray along with Altman's rare COME BACK TO THE FIVE AND DIME, JIMMY DEAN, JIMMY DEAN (@ BLU). And finally SIN CITY 2: A DAME TO KILL FOR (@ BLU 3D).
