New Releases February 17

Hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day this weekend. But there's no more time for love when we've got another stack of Tuesday New Releases!

 

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 one of the front-runners in this year's Academy Awards. Will BIRDMAN (@ BLU SALE) take home the Best Picture Oscar this Sunday? 

 

One of our favorite films from last year is also one of the most beautiful. Of course, that's not anything new when you're talking about Studio Ghibli. Their latest film (and one of their last) is the gorgeously animated Japanese folktale THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA (@ BLU SALE).

 

We'd also be remiss in not mentioning the release of another installment of one of our TV obsessions. The great and grisly GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 4 (@ BLU SALE) is out today!

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: More Oscar nominees, with Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking in THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING (@ BLU SALE), and the fantastic Roger Ebert documentary LIFE ITSELF (@ BLU SALE). Did you somehow manage to survive Christmas without seeing THE INTERVIEW (@ BLU SALE)? Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are back together in DUMB AND DUMBER TO (BLU). Tommy Lee Jones comes back to the director's chair with his feminist frontier western THE HOMESMAN (@ BLU SALE). Nicolas Cage is a secret agent in THE DYING OF THE LIGHT. Everybody loves Bill Murray, so that means you have to watch ST. VINCENT (@ BLU SALE). 

Tons of catalog blu-ray releases this week! The Heroes at the Criterion Collection have an HD upgrade of Ozu's final film, AN AUTUMN AFTERNOON (@ BLU SALE). Warner Archive has Julie Christie in FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD (@ BLU SALE). Billy Wilder's KISS ME, STUPID (@ BLU SALE) was actually condemned by the Legion of Decency! The great Jacques Rivette's LE PONT DU NORD (@ BLU SALE) gets a long overdue release. There are a couple of Roger Corman exploitation classics with THE WILD ANGELS (@ BLU SALE) and THE PSYCH-OUT (@ BLU SALE). Frankie and Annette hit the surf in BEACH BLANKET BINGO (@ BLU SALE) and MUSCLE BEACH PARTY (@ BLU SALE). Ringo Starr made a caveman picture, appropriately called CAVEMAN (@ BLU SALE). And fans of esoteric horror should get a look at CULT OF THE DAMNED (@ BLU SALE), the trippy Robert Englund version of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (@ BLU SALE), and found-footage anthology V/H/S: VIRAL (BLU). Oh, and PS, we got in an import blu-ray rental copy of BUGSY MALONE!
