First up, the Heroes at the Criterion Collection have brought us a lovely new box set of films celebrating the collaboration between actor/playwrights Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn. 3 FILMS (@ BLU) includes the beloved MY DINNER WITH ANDRE (@ BLU), Louis Malle's VANYA ON 42ND STREET (@ BLU), and Jonathan Demme's latest film, an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's A MASTER BUILDER (@ BLU). 

 

Also, the final Miyazaki film to be released on blu-ray, the long awaited SPIRITED AWAY (@ BLU) finally arrives. Is this maybe Miyazaki's best film after MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO (@ BLU)? The great one has made too many masterpieces to rank.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Another Studio Ghibli film also makes it to blu, 2002's THE CAT RETURNS (@ BLU). Argentinian revenge-anthology craziness in WILD TALES (@ BLU). Liam Neeson doing his ass-kicking thing in RUN ALL NIGHT (BLU). Takashi Miike's absolutely bonkers zombie family musical comedy THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS (@ BLU) is out from Arrow. Do you like South African rappers and cool robots? CHAPPIE (BLU) may be for you. William Friedkin's early queer film THE BOYS IN THE BAND (@ BLU) and groundbreaking cop drama THE ONION FIELD (@ BLU) are here from Kino, along with bizarro fantasy THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT (@ BLU). THE WRECKING CREW (@ BLU) is a great documentary about the best backup band ever. A killer animal double feature disc with TENTACLES and REPTILICUS (@ BLU), along with a new blu-ray of the deeply weird werewolf movie WOLFEN (@ BLU). And last but not least, the final season of HBO's THE NEWSROOM (BLU).
