First up, Clint Eastwood's controversial surprise hit, one of the biggest movies of last year, AMERICAN SNIPER (@ BLU SALE), a biopic about the late Chris Kyle, "the deadliest sniper in American history." We think no matter where you fall in the debate about this movie, it's still an often moving account of the physical and emotional consequences of war, and Clint Eastwood continues to make risky, idiosyncratic films unlike anyone else's.

 

Then, the Heroes at the Criterion Collection bring us Charlie Chaplin's final American film, LIMELIGHT (@ BLU SALE). He stars as an aging comedian who rescues a suicidal ballerina, and together they try to find meaning in their lives and support each other while trying to navigate their way through show business. Definitely a late masterpiece from Chaplin.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Criterion also has the famous Bette Midler drama THE ROSE (@ BLU SALE)...did you know Bette doesn't even sing that song in the movie? Shakespeare gets transplanted to a modern day biker gang in CYMBELINE (BLU). Best Foreign Film nominee LEVIATHAN (@ BLU SALE), from Russia. Two fantastical comedies from ex-Pythoners: ERIK THE VIKING (@ BLU SALE) and YELLOWBEARD (@ BLU SALE). Take another trip back in HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 (BLU). IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE (@ BLU SALE) heavily inspired the original ALIEN. Cult favorite LADYHAWKE (@ BLU SALE) arrives on blu-ray. Two versions of a Mario Bava classic, THE EVIL EYE / THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (@ BLU SALE). Sam Peckinpah's final film THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND (@ BLU SALE). We also got special Disney Movie Club blu-rays RETURN TO OZ and SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON in for rent. And for the TV lovers we've got extra-cheap complete sets of NEWSRADIO (@ SALE) and THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW (@ SALE), as well as the second season of ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK (BLU).
