New HD master from a 4K scan of the original Trucolor negative and positive separations! Ray Milland (Panic in Year Zero!), Ward Bond (Dakota), Raymond Burr (Pitfall) and Lee Van Cleef (Barquero) are headed for a lethal showdown of greed, treachery and vengeance in this blazing Western adventure directed by Milland (Lisbon). When notorious gunslinger Wes Steele (Milland) chances upon the gruesome remains of a stagecoach robbery, he reports the carnage in a nearby town. But there he is framed for the crime by Stanley (Burr), the town’s most respected citizen, who secretly committed the murders himself as part of an intricate bank robbery scheme. Escaping the town’s relentless lynch mob, Wes finds refuge in the house of the local sheriff (Bond), where he falls for his host’s winsome daughter (Mary Murphy, The Wild One) and gradually wins the lawman’s trust and respect. Now together with his newfound allies, he must return to face the vengeful townspeople and wage a bloody war with cunning Stanley and his ruthless gang. Co-starring Alan Hale Jr. (TV’s Gilligan’s Island). 

[review_introduction] =>

Director/Star Ray Milland' traditional western A Man Alone with generic plot beats succeeds at sticking to traditional tropes while proving to be far better than average. A great cast including Mary Murphy and Ward Bard, with sinister performances by Raymond Burr and Lee Van Cleef, turn something run-of-the-mill into exciting and suspenseful. It may not be the greatest western ever, but it's damn entertaining. Kino Lorber Studio Classics delivers A Man Alone to Blu-ray with a strong video transfer and a good audio mix to match. Bonus features are light but the audio commentary is worth a listen. Recommended.

[review_movie] =>

Ray Milland is Wes Steele - an infamous gunfighter with a reputation for a quick draw and an honest heart. In the desert, his horse goes lame. Stranded, he comes across a massacred stagecoach with women and children dead. As he tries to return to town to report the crime, he's accosted by the acting sheriff (Alan Hale Jr.). Shooting him in self-defense, Steele flees as the town forms a mob lead by Mr. Stanley (Raymond Burr) and his right-hand man Clanton (Lee Van Cleef). Forced to take shelter in the basement of the ailing Sheriff Corrigan (Ward Bond) and his daughter Nadine (Mary Murphy). As the mob conducts house to house searches, Steele must convince Nadine and the Sheriff he's not only innocent of the massacre but the suspicious death of the town's banker. 

A Man Alone Blu-ray

As his first time in the director's chair, Ray Milland proves that he's skilled behind the camera as well as in front. A Man Alone isn't dramatically original or too much of a workout when it comes to storytelling, but by keeping to the basics the film stands on its own two feet and proves a good aim in a standoff shootout. If you're a fan of westerns you've seen the story of the outlaw with an honest streak who gets into a hell of a lot of trouble and has to shoot his way out against terrible odds - this is that movie again, but it has its own subtle moves in the territory to make it stand out. 

The cast is what makes the flick. Milland is an adept lead and is able to play the heavy nicely while still having a heart. His exchanges with Mary Murphy and Ward Bond allow him to show a soft side while his play time with Burr and Lee Van Cleef shows he's capable of being the stone cold hardass. The story beats are by the book, there are few surprises, but it's how the movie gets from point A to point B that makes it worth the while. Plus, it's also a lot of fun to see Raymond Burr play a bad guy and Lee Van Cleef is always a welcome presence in any western with that steely-eyed stare of his. 

A Man Alone certainly isn't the greatest western ever made or the most original, but it gets enough right to be solid entertainment. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this one going in, I'd only seen Milland in a couple of films, but I was pleasantly surprised. At a brisk 96-minutes, the film doesn't sell itself short nor does it overstay its welcome. It proved to be great entertainment. Uncomplicated, to the point, but fun just the same.

A Man Alone Blu-ray

When you watch A Man Alone, it's important to keep in mind the difference between a new 4K "Scan" and a 4K "Restoration." Reportedly featuring a new 4K Scan of the original Trucolor negative and positive separations, A Man Alone sports a beautiful 1080p 1.66:1 transfer - that still shows its age. Details are strong with crisp lines allowing you to soak in the desert location, the rustic western production design, and fine facial features. The aftermath of a sandstorm provides some notable sandy dusty accents to costuming. Colors are vivid with bright and bold primaries. Skin tones are healthy and accurate. Black levels are nice and inky giving the image a notable presence of depth. Where the score gets a little iffy is in the condition of the elements sourced for this transfer. While the scan is terrific, it could have used some restoration work. Mild speckling is apparent throughout without being too intrusive. There are some heavier patches here and there with some brief appearances of vertical scratches, but they never last for very long. It's a movie with an attractive face that just has a few blemishes. 

[review_audio] =>

A Man Alone

A Man Alone Sports a strong DTS-HD MA 2.0 mono mix that more or less takes care of business. The nature of the film itself doesn't call for much in the way of dynamic atmospherics, much of the action takes place in small rooms with just a handful of characters to fill with dialogue. Sound effects and the traditionalist score by Victor Young round out the mix nicely keeping things active without dead patches. Dialogue is crisp and clean and there isn't much in the way of audible age-related anomalies. A patch or two of hiss and that is all. Overall the mix is good, it's just not earth-shattering in any way.

A Man Alone

A Man Alone wasn't given a huge package of bonus features, the typical KLSC trailer collection is present, but the inclusion of a commentary track by Film Historian Toby Roan is a good listen.

A Man Alone

A Man Alone certainly isn't the most original western ever made, nor is it the best - but that doesn't keep it from being good. Milland's first outing as a director proves the man had talent in front and behind the camera. He's a strong leading man and his cast members play to the traditional tropes while still finding ways to stand out. I love a good western, and this was a good one. Kino Lorber Studio Classics brings A Man Alone to Blu-ray in fine form with an aged but still impressive video transfer, a reliable audio mix, and a worthwhile commentary track. It's a good time so if you're tempted, give it a spin. Recommended.

ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL follows talented young artist Jerome Platz (Max Minghella, The Social Network) as he escapes from high school to a tiny East Coast art school. Here the boyish freshman's ambition is to become the world's greatest artist, like his hero Picasso. Unfortunately, the beauty and craft of Jerome's portraiture are not appreciated in an anything-goes art class. Neither his harsh judgments of his classmates' efforts nor his later attempts to create pseudo-art of his own win him any admirers. But Jerome does attract the attentions of his dream girl, the stunning and sophisticated Audrey (Sophia Myles, Transformers: Age of Extinction), an artist's model and daughter of a celebrated artist. Rejecting the affectations of the local art scene, Audrey is drawn to Jerome's sincerity. When Audrey shifts her attention to Jonah (Matt Keeslar, Scream 3), a hunky painter who becomes the school's latest art star, Jerome is heartbroken. Desperate, he concocts a risky plan to make a name for himself and win her back. From Terry Zwigoff, the director of Ghost World and Bad Santa, Art School Confidential features a stellar supporting cast that includes John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire), Ethan Suplee (Mallrats), Joel David Moore (Avatar), Angelica Huston (The Addams Family), Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge!), Nick Swardson (Grandma's Boy), Adam Scott (Step Brothers) and Scoot McNairy (Argo) in a movie that's enjoyable and reprises the same dyspeptic attitude that infused Ghost World (The Washington Post).

A refreshingly sunny performance from Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, Elle) is at the center of this comic charmer from South Korean Master Hong Sangsoo. Huppert plays Claire, a school teacher with a camera (that might be magical) on her first visit to Cannes. She happens upon a film sales assistant, Manhee (Kim Minhee), recently laid off after a one-night stand with a film director (Jung Jinyoung). Together, this unlikely pair become detectives of sorts, as they wander around the seaside resort town, working to better understand the circumstances of Manhee's firing and developing new outlooks on life in the process.

The year is 1972 and like most high school students, Betsy Jobs (Kirsten Dunst) and Arlene Lorenzo (Michelle Williams) just want to have a good time. But when, during a class field trip to the White House, they cluelessly wander into a behind closed doors, top-secret shredding session, it's time to both wag the dog, and walk it. Seeking to uncover just how much the witless duo discovered, the Commander In Chief, appoints them "Official White House Dog Walkers," and it isn't long before the girls go from taking out Checkers, to taking out Tricky Dick, in this fun raising comedy of historic distortions.

Executive produced by news legend Dan Rather, Fail State investigates the dark side of American higher education, chronicling decades of policy decisions in Washington DC that have given rise to a powerful and highly-predatory for-profit college industry. With echoes of the subprime mortgage crisis, the film lays bare how for-profit colleges exploit millions of low-income and minority students, leaving them with worthless degrees and drowning in student loan debt. Director Alexander Shebanow traces the rise, fall, and resurgence of the for-profit college industry, uncovering their Wall Street backing and incestuous relationship with the regulators and lawmakers charged with overseeing them.

Paul Gauguin feels smothered by the atmosphere prevailing in Paris in the year 1891. Around him, everything is so artificial and conventional: he needs authenticity to renew his art. Failing to convince his wife Mette and his five children to follow him to Paradise Lost, he sets out for Tahiti alone. Once there, he chooses to settle down in Mataiera, a village far away from Papeete, installing himself in a native-made hut. He soon starts working passionately, painting and carving in a style close to the primitive art specific to the island. During his two-year stay the artist will experience poverty, cardiac problems and other displeasures but also happiness in the arms of Tehura, a beautiful young native girl.

Pascal Marchand, an aspiring poet from Montreal, arrived in the mythical land of Burgundy to work the harvest at age 21. Enchanted by the region, he settled there and embarked on an unlikely path to winemaking stardom. Now over 30 years later, he is renowned as an artist and innovator, finding his inspiration in the ancient techniques of the Cistercian monks who meticulously studied and refined Burgundy's winemaking in the middle ages. Shot over his most difficult year ever, the catastrophic 2016 season which saw devastating frosts, hailstorms and disease in the vineyards, the film is both a love letter and a cautionary tale, as winemakers like Pascal must face the unpredictable and destructive consequences of climate change.

Director Frank Capra, known to millions as the man behind the beloved classics It's a Wonderful Life, It Happened One Night, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Meet John Doe, also used his talents in support of the war effort by directing, producing and acting as an advisor on a series of World War II propaganda films. Depicting the ravages of combat, the lives of soldiers engaged in battle, as well as those left behind on the home front, five of the films that Capra was involved in bringing to the screen are represented in this special edition presented in cooperation with the National Archives.

TUNISIAN VICTORY takes us behind Allied troop lines and documents American and British forces working together to free North Africa from the grip of the Nazi stranglehold. Capra was assisted by film editor Hugh Stewart (49th Parallel) and directors Roy Boulting (The Outsider) and John Huston (The Maltese Falcon, Let There Be Light), in this film that features the voice talents of Burgess Meredith (Story of G.I. Joe, Rocky), Bernard Miles (In Which We Serve) and Leo Genn (Moby Dick), and a powerful film score attributed to Dimitri Tiomkin (High Noon) and William Alwyn (The Fallen Idol).

PRELUDE TO WAR, the first in Capra's Why We Fight series of propaganda films, is a rallying cry for patriots to join the fight against the Axis powers and the tyranny of Nazism. A host of musical talent contributed to the score, including Alfred Newman (How the West Was Won), winner of nine Academy Awards®, and David Raksin (Laura).

THE BATTLE OF RUSSIA, another of Capra's Why We Fight films, is the longest and most ambitious of the series. Presented in two parts, the film focuses on the Nazi conquest of the Balkans in an attempt to capture Russia. Capra would share directing credit with Russian-born Anatole Litvak (Sorry, Wrong Number) in a film which is aided immeasurably by Walter Huston's (The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) narration.

THE NEGRO SOLDIER, produced by Capra and directed by Stuart Heisler (The Glass Key), was used as an enlistment tool to encourage African-American men and women to join the armed forces. The film incorporates footage of Olympic athlete Jesse Owens at the 1936 Berlin Games, highlighting and contrasting the freedom-loving citizens of the United States with Germany's oppressive and ever-growing Nazi party.

YOUR JOB IN GERMANY, directed by Capra and written by Theodor S. Geisel (better known as Dr. Seuss), is a short form film shown to soldiers who would be serving "occupation duty" in Germany in 1945.

Just before Christmas, Lee Leander is caught shoplifting. It is her third offense. She is prosecuted by John Sargent. He postpones the trial because it is hard to get a conviction at Christmas time. But he feels sorry for her and arranges for her bail, and ends up taking her home to his mother for Christmas. Surrounded by a loving family (in stark contrast to Lee's own family background) they fall in love. This creates a new problem: how do they handle the upcoming trial?

Brian Krause and Alice Krige star in this terrifying tale of modern-day vampires who move from small town to small town to prey on virtuous young women. Imperceptibly inhuman to everyone except for felines, these vicious shape-shifters have their eyes on a new victim: Mädchen Amick is Tanya, the sexually curious virgin who falls for Charles, the new boy in school (Krause). Mutating at will from golden boy to savage monster, Charles stalks Tanya to feed his seductive mother. As the tension mounts (and the casualties pile up), the town's tabbies gather for a final, chilling showdown with the monsters in their midst – and we all know it's not nice to hurt people's felines.

The Roy's story is compelling and often comedic, as they out-maneuver each other through cut-throat family and business dynamics, while contemplating what's in store once their father passes.

The mighty Lord of the Apes (Gordon Scott) is on a deadly trail. He’s determined to find the diamond hunters (including Anthony Quayle and Sean Connery) who brought terror and death to a peaceful village. But as much as Tarzan is a tracker and avenger, he’s also a protector. An irresponsible gadfly from the so-called civilized world intrudes on his quest, and Tarzan knows he cannot leave her to fend for herself. Tarzan’s Greatest Adventure is widely applauded as one of the best and most grownup films in the entire film annals of the jungle lord’s exploits. It’s “a superior action yarn shot on location in Africa, more adult than most of its predecessors. Tarzan has a much expanded vocabulary” (Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide).

Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick return to their award-winning roles in the hilariously funny film of the record-breaking Broadway smash-hit. Scheming producer Max Bialystock (Lane) and his mousy accountant, Leo Bloom (Broderick), discover that under the right circumstances they could make more money by producing a Broadway flop than they can with a hit. But what will they do when their sure-to-offend musical becomes a surprise sensation? Co-starring sexy Uma Thurman and comedy genius Will Ferrell, The Producers is a fun-filled, side-splitting comedy.

The beloved family classic comes alive once again! 

The world’s most popular musical, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music, comes brilliantly to life in this ambitious, live-broadcast production from BAFTA-nominated director Coky Giedroyc! 

The spectacular Kara Tointon (Mr Selfridge, EastEnders) delivers a "mesmerizing performance and incredible vocal talents", (Daily Mail) as Maria, the tomboyish nun who reluctantly becomes the governess for seven children living in the shadow of their stern widower father (Julian Ovenden, Downton Abbey). Along with her required duties, Maria brings love, music and excitement back into the children’s lives ... and also eventually begins to have an effect on their father. But just when things are looking up, the rise of Nazism and the looming threat of war darkens their future ... 

Supported by Katherine Kelly (Mr Selfridge, Coronation Street) as Baroness Elsa Schraeder and Alexander Armstrong (The Armstrong And Miller Show, Danger Mouse) as Max Detweiler, The Sound Of Music Live is an enchanting experience that will remain with you long after the last curtain call.

New HD master from a 4K scan of the original Trucolor negative and positive separations! Ray Milland (Panic in Year Zero!), Ward Bond (Dakota), Raymond Burr (Pitfall) and Lee Van Cleef (Barquero) are headed for a lethal showdown of greed, treachery and vengeance in this blazing Western adventure directed by Milland (Lisbon). When notorious gunslinger Wes Steele (Milland) chances upon the gruesome remains of a stagecoach robbery, he reports the carnage in a nearby town. But there he is framed for the crime by Stanley (Burr), the town’s most respected citizen, who secretly committed the murders himself as part of an intricate bank robbery scheme. Escaping the town’s relentless lynch mob, Wes finds refuge in the house of the local sheriff (Bond), where he falls for his host’s winsome daughter (Mary Murphy, The Wild One) and gradually wins the lawman’s trust and respect. Now together with his newfound allies, he must return to face the vengeful townspeople and wage a bloody war with cunning Stanley and his ruthless gang. Co-starring Alan Hale Jr. (TV’s Gilligan’s Island). 

[review_introduction] =>

Director/Star Ray Milland' traditional western A Man Alone with generic plot beats succeeds at sticking to traditional tropes while proving to be far better than average. A great cast including Mary Murphy and Ward Bard, with sinister performances by Raymond Burr and Lee Van Cleef, turn something run-of-the-mill into exciting and suspenseful. It may not be the greatest western ever, but it's damn entertaining. Kino Lorber Studio Classics delivers A Man Alone to Blu-ray with a strong video transfer and a good audio mix to match. Bonus features are light but the audio commentary is worth a listen. Recommended.

[review_movie] =>

Ray Milland is Wes Steele - an infamous gunfighter with a reputation for a quick draw and an honest heart. In the desert, his horse goes lame. Stranded, he comes across a massacred stagecoach with women and children dead. As he tries to return to town to report the crime, he's accosted by the acting sheriff (Alan Hale Jr.). Shooting him in self-defense, Steele flees as the town forms a mob lead by Mr. Stanley (Raymond Burr) and his right-hand man Clanton (Lee Van Cleef). Forced to take shelter in the basement of the ailing Sheriff Corrigan (Ward Bond) and his daughter Nadine (Mary Murphy). As the mob conducts house to house searches, Steele must convince Nadine and the Sheriff he's not only innocent of the massacre but the suspicious death of the town's banker. 

A Man Alone Blu-ray

As his first time in the director's chair, Ray Milland proves that he's skilled behind the camera as well as in front. A Man Alone isn't dramatically original or too much of a workout when it comes to storytelling, but by keeping to the basics the film stands on its own two feet and proves a good aim in a standoff shootout. If you're a fan of westerns you've seen the story of the outlaw with an honest streak who gets into a hell of a lot of trouble and has to shoot his way out against terrible odds - this is that movie again, but it has its own subtle moves in the territory to make it stand out. 

The cast is what makes the flick. Milland is an adept lead and is able to play the heavy nicely while still having a heart. His exchanges with Mary Murphy and Ward Bond allow him to show a soft side while his play time with Burr and Lee Van Cleef shows he's capable of being the stone cold hardass. The story beats are by the book, there are few surprises, but it's how the movie gets from point A to point B that makes it worth the while. Plus, it's also a lot of fun to see Raymond Burr play a bad guy and Lee Van Cleef is always a welcome presence in any western with that steely-eyed stare of his. 

A Man Alone certainly isn't the greatest western ever made or the most original, but it gets enough right to be solid entertainment. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this one going in, I'd only seen Milland in a couple of films, but I was pleasantly surprised. At a brisk 96-minutes, the film doesn't sell itself short nor does it overstay its welcome. It proved to be great entertainment. Uncomplicated, to the point, but fun just the same.

A Man Alone Blu-ray

When you watch A Man Alone, it's important to keep in mind the difference between a new 4K "Scan" and a 4K "Restoration." Reportedly featuring a new 4K Scan of the original Trucolor negative and positive separations, A Man Alone sports a beautiful 1080p 1.66:1 transfer - that still shows its age. Details are strong with crisp lines allowing you to soak in the desert location, the rustic western production design, and fine facial features. The aftermath of a sandstorm provides some notable sandy dusty accents to costuming. Colors are vivid with bright and bold primaries. Skin tones are healthy and accurate. Black levels are nice and inky giving the image a notable presence of depth. Where the score gets a little iffy is in the condition of the elements sourced for this transfer. While the scan is terrific, it could have used some restoration work. Mild speckling is apparent throughout without being too intrusive. There are some heavier patches here and there with some brief appearances of vertical scratches, but they never last for very long. It's a movie with an attractive face that just has a few blemishes. 

[review_audio] =>

A Man Alone

A Man Alone Sports a strong DTS-HD MA 2.0 mono mix that more or less takes care of business. The nature of the film itself doesn't call for much in the way of dynamic atmospherics, much of the action takes place in small rooms with just a handful of characters to fill with dialogue. Sound effects and the traditionalist score by Victor Young round out the mix nicely keeping things active without dead patches. Dialogue is crisp and clean and there isn't much in the way of audible age-related anomalies. A patch or two of hiss and that is all. Overall the mix is good, it's just not earth-shattering in any way. 

[review_supplements] =>

A Man Alone

A Man Alone wasn't given a huge package of bonus features, the typical KLSC trailer collection is present, but the inclusion of a commentary track by Film Historian Toby Roan is a good listen. 

[review_bottom_line] => 2 [review_final_thoughts] =>

A Man Alone

A Man Alone certainly isn't the most original western ever made, nor is it the best - but that doesn't keep it from being good. Milland's first outing as a director proves the man had talent in front and behind the camera. He's a strong leading man and his cast members play to the traditional tropes while still finding ways to stand out. I love a good western, and this was a good one. Kino Lorber Studio Classics brings A Man Alone to Blu-ray in fine form with an aged but still impressive video transfer, a reliable audio mix, and a worthwhile commentary track. It's a good time so if you're tempted, give it a spin. Recommended.

ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL follows talented young artist Jerome Platz (Max Minghella, The Social Network) as he escapes from high school to a tiny East Coast art school. Here the boyish freshman's ambition is to become the world's greatest artist, like his hero Picasso. Unfortunately, the beauty and craft of Jerome's portraiture are not appreciated in an anything-goes art class. Neither his harsh judgments of his classmates' efforts nor his later attempts to create pseudo-art of his own win him any admirers. But Jerome does attract the attentions of his dream girl, the stunning and sophisticated Audrey (Sophia Myles, Transformers: Age of Extinction), an artist's model and daughter of a celebrated artist. Rejecting the affectations of the local art scene, Audrey is drawn to Jerome's sincerity. When Audrey shifts her attention to Jonah (Matt Keeslar, Scream 3), a hunky painter who becomes the school's latest art star, Jerome is heartbroken. Desperate, he concocts a risky plan to make a name for himself and win her back. From Terry Zwigoff, the director of Ghost World and Bad Santa, Art School Confidential features a stellar supporting cast that includes John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire), Ethan Suplee (Mallrats), Joel David Moore (Avatar), Angelica Huston (The Addams Family), Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge!), Nick Swardson (Grandma's Boy), Adam Scott (Step Brothers) and Scoot McNairy (Argo) in a movie that's enjoyable and reprises the same dyspeptic attitude that infused Ghost World (The Washington Post).

A refreshingly sunny performance from Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, Elle) is at the center of this comic charmer from South Korean Master Hong Sangsoo. Huppert plays Claire, a school teacher with a camera (that might be magical) on her first visit to Cannes. She happens upon a film sales assistant, Manhee (Kim Minhee), recently laid off after a one-night stand with a film director (Jung Jinyoung). Together, this unlikely pair become detectives of sorts, as they wander around the seaside resort town, working to better understand the circumstances of Manhee's firing and developing new outlooks on life in the process.

The year is 1972 and like most high school students, Betsy Jobs (Kirsten Dunst) and Arlene Lorenzo (Michelle Williams) just want to have a good time. But when, during a class field trip to the White House, they cluelessly wander into a behind closed doors, top-secret shredding session, it's time to both wag the dog, and walk it. Seeking to uncover just how much the witless duo discovered, the Commander In Chief, appoints them "Official White House Dog Walkers," and it isn't long before the girls go from taking out Checkers, to taking out Tricky Dick, in this fun raising comedy of historic distortions.

Executive produced by news legend Dan Rather, Fail State investigates the dark side of American higher education, chronicling decades of policy decisions in Washington DC that have given rise to a powerful and highly-predatory for-profit college industry. With echoes of the subprime mortgage crisis, the film lays bare how for-profit colleges exploit millions of low-income and minority students, leaving them with worthless degrees and drowning in student loan debt. Director Alexander Shebanow traces the rise, fall, and resurgence of the for-profit college industry, uncovering their Wall Street backing and incestuous relationship with the regulators and lawmakers charged with overseeing them.

Paul Gauguin feels smothered by the atmosphere prevailing in Paris in the year 1891. Around him, everything is so artificial and conventional: he needs authenticity to renew his art. Failing to convince his wife Mette and his five children to follow him to Paradise Lost, he sets out for Tahiti alone. Once there, he chooses to settle down in Mataiera, a village far away from Papeete, installing himself in a native-made hut. He soon starts working passionately, painting and carving in a style close to the primitive art specific to the island. During his two-year stay the artist will experience poverty, cardiac problems and other displeasures but also happiness in the arms of Tehura, a beautiful young native girl.

Pascal Marchand, an aspiring poet from Montreal, arrived in the mythical land of Burgundy to work the harvest at age 21. Enchanted by the region, he settled there and embarked on an unlikely path to winemaking stardom. Now over 30 years later, he is renowned as an artist and innovator, finding his inspiration in the ancient techniques of the Cistercian monks who meticulously studied and refined Burgundy's winemaking in the middle ages. Shot over his most difficult year ever, the catastrophic 2016 season which saw devastating frosts, hailstorms and disease in the vineyards, the film is both a love letter and a cautionary tale, as winemakers like Pascal must face the unpredictable and destructive consequences of climate change.

For Capt. Robert John Evans (Ray Milland), smuggling black-market goods is nothing out of the ordinary. But one day he's hired by Aristides Mavros (Claude Rains) for a more involved assignment -- sneaking an imprisoned American out of the communist-controlled territory.

Director Frank Capra, known to millions as the man behind the beloved classics It's a Wonderful Life, It Happened One Night, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Meet John Doe, also used his talents in support of the war effort by directing, producing and acting as an advisor on a series of World War II propaganda films. Depicting the ravages of combat, the lives of soldiers engaged in battle, as well as those left behind on the home front, five of the films that Capra was involved in bringing to the screen are represented in this special edition presented in cooperation with the National Archives.

TUNISIAN VICTORY takes us behind Allied troop lines and documents American and British forces working together to free North Africa from the grip of the Nazi stranglehold. Capra was assisted by film editor Hugh Stewart (49th Parallel) and directors Roy Boulting (The Outsider) and John Huston (The Maltese Falcon, Let There Be Light), in this film that features the voice talents of Burgess Meredith (Story of G.I. Joe, Rocky), Bernard Miles (In Which We Serve) and Leo Genn (Moby Dick), and a powerful film score attributed to Dimitri Tiomkin (High Noon) and William Alwyn (The Fallen Idol).

PRELUDE TO WAR, the first in Capra's Why We Fight series of propaganda films, is a rallying cry for patriots to join the fight against the Axis powers and the tyranny of Nazism. A host of musical talent contributed to the score, including Alfred Newman (How the West Was Won), winner of nine Academy Awards®, and David Raksin (Laura).

THE BATTLE OF RUSSIA, another of Capra's Why We Fight films, is the longest and most ambitious of the series. Presented in two parts, the film focuses on the Nazi conquest of the Balkans in an attempt to capture Russia. Capra would share directing credit with Russian-born Anatole Litvak (Sorry, Wrong Number) in a film which is aided immeasurably by Walter Huston's (The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) narration.

THE NEGRO SOLDIER, produced by Capra and directed by Stuart Heisler (The Glass Key), was used as an enlistment tool to encourage African-American men and women to join the armed forces. The film incorporates footage of Olympic athlete Jesse Owens at the 1936 Berlin Games, highlighting and contrasting the freedom-loving citizens of the United States with Germany's oppressive and ever-growing Nazi party.

YOUR JOB IN GERMANY, directed by Capra and written by Theodor S. Geisel (better known as Dr. Seuss), is a short form film shown to soldiers who would be serving "occupation duty" in Germany in 1945.

But he feels sorry for her and arranges for her bail, and ends up taking her home to his mother for Christmas. Surrounded by a loving family (in stark contrast to Lee's own family background) they fall in love. This creates a new problem: how do they handle the upcoming trial?

Brian Krause and Alice Krige star in this terrifying tale of modern-day vampires who move from small town to small town to prey on virtuous young women. Imperceptibly inhuman to everyone except for felines, these vicious shape-shifters have their eyes on a new victim: Mädchen Amick is Tanya, the sexually curious virgin who falls for Charles, the new boy in school (Krause). Mutating at will from golden boy to savage monster, Charles stalks Tanya to feed his seductive mother. As the tension mounts (and the casualties pile up), the town's tabbies gather for a final, chilling showdown with the monsters in their midst – and we all know it's not nice to hurt people's felines.

The mighty Lord of the Apes (Gordon Scott) is on a deadly trail. He’s determined to find the diamond hunters (including Anthony Quayle and Sean Connery) who brought terror and death to a peaceful village. But as much as Tarzan is a tracker and avenger, he’s also a protector. An irresponsible gadfly from the so-called civilized world intrudes on his quest, and Tarzan knows he cannot leave her to fend for herself. Tarzan’s Greatest Adventure is widely applauded as one of the best and most grownup films in the entire film annals of the jungle lord’s exploits. It’s “a superior action yarn shot on location in Africa, more adult than most of its predecessors. Tarzan has a much expanded vocabulary” (Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide).

Thomas starts to work for her and create German cakes and cookies that bring life into her Café. Thomas finds himself involved in Anat's life in a way far beyond his anticipation, and to protect the truth he will stretch his lie to a point of no return.

The beloved family classic comes alive once again! 

The world’s most popular musical, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music, comes brilliantly to life in this ambitious, live-broadcast production from BAFTA-nominated director Coky Giedroyc! 

The spectacular Kara Tointon (Mr Selfridge, EastEnders) delivers a "mesmerizing performance and incredible vocal talents", (Daily Mail) as Maria, the tomboyish nun who reluctantly becomes the governess for seven children living in the shadow of their stern widower father (Julian Ovenden, Downton Abbey). Along with her required duties, Maria brings love, music and excitement back into the children’s lives ... and also eventually begins to have an effect on their father. But just when things are looking up, the rise of Nazism and the looming threat of war darkens their future ... 

Supported by Katherine Kelly (Mr Selfridge, Coronation Street) as Baroness Elsa Schraeder and Alexander Armstrong (The Armstrong And Miller Show, Danger Mouse) as Max Detweiler, The Sound Of Music Live is an enchanting experience that will remain with you long after the last curtain call.

[review_movie] =>

In an effort to not just rehash each of the 'Rocky' films with two paragraph reviews, I'm going to take a different road with this review by reviewing and discussing the 'Rocky' saga as a whole.*

I remember getting 'Rocky IV' for a birthday one year. After watching it I had the distinct impression that I wanted to work out in the snow. So I went for a run in the falling snow with the 'Rocky' theme song playing over and over in my head. I became an instant fan of boxing, only to find out that real boxing was nothing like the boxing featured in the 'Rocky' films where almost every punch lands with ferocious velocity and no one tries to block anything.

'Rocky' was a monumental achievement both in storytelling and box office success. It won the Best Picture Oscar in 1977 and went on to become one of the most iconic films in American culture. Few movies have had such a huge impact on my life as the 'Rocky' films. It wasn't until years later, when I rewatched the first 'Rocky,' that I was really able to understand the meaning behind that film. Rocky is forever a humble guy who is just trying his best with the lot he's been given in life.

No name Rocky Balboa is offered a chance to fight Heavyweight World Champion Apollo Creed, just because cocky Creed likes the sound of Rocky's nickname "The Italian Stallion." 'Rocky' transcends every other sports movie out there by being about a man who just wants to prove he can go the distance, rather than win outright. Most of the subsequent 'Rocky' films become about winning, but the first one was a beautiful tale of a man who was given a chance and took full advantage of it, he proves to the world what he can do. The first film is also about the innocent love Rocky has for the local pet store girl named Adrian. Adrian never talks and Rocky never stops talking, they're a perfect match.

The first 'Rocky' requires a little life experience to get all the nuances and meaning behind it. The rest of the films have their own beauty to them (except 'Rocky V'), but the first film is by far the best of the series.

The interesting thing about the later films is that there is still a story to tell with the perpetual underdog's life. His character continues to evolve and change throughout the series, but that humility and drive to excel are always there. In 'Rocky II,' we see that Rocky really has no idea what to do with the new found wealth that he's going to get from doing commercials.

'Rocky III' shows us an upset and ungrateful Paulie, as well as Rocky's beloved manager Mickey passing away. In a touching scene, where Rocky cries over the body of his fallen manager we are all reminded that this tough-as-nails man still has one of the biggest hearts out there.

'Rocky IV' gives us a glimpse at Rocky's determination and how Creed's cockiness brings him down. Many people consider this one to be their favorite film of the series. It's my second favorite, behind the first film, but for different reasons. By this time they had perfected the fighting scenes and upped the dramatic effect of the sound effects. Out of the series this one is the most fun to watch, but not the most meaningful.

The 'Rocky' saga embodies the underdog story to perfection. Like I said, he's always considered the underdog. That never fazes him though. His outlook on life can be compared to another movie character... Forrest Gump. Rocky has the best intentions, and always wants to do right by his friends and family even if they treat him terribly (I'm looking at you Paulie). Devastation meets him at every turn, but he perseveres.

Rocky is so iconic and so beloved because we love those gritty stories about people who aren't supposed to succeed, but do. We love seeing someone go from rags to riches. The story of Rocky is full of lessons on life like how to treat other people, what true friendship is, and how love conquers all. Sure I might be getting a little sappy here, but to this day, each and every 'Rocky' film (with the exception of 'Rocky V') chokes me up more than once during its runtime.

* For those of you that want to know my star ratings for each film they are as follows:

'Rocky' – 5 stars

'Rocky II' – 4 stars

'Rocky III' – 3.5 stars

'Rocky IV' – 4 stars

'Rocky V' – 2 stars

'Rocky Balboa' – 4 stars

Rocky

The original sports classic comes out swinging with a phenomenal, reference-quality 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode that surpasses all previous Blu-ray editions. Struck from the original elements and remastered at 4K resolution, the picture is absolutely gorgeous, revealing every detail and fine line in buildings and clothing with resolute, distinct clarity. A couple shots are a tad on the soft side, but they're a result of the original photography, not a fault in the transfer. The 1.85:1 image is awash with a very fine layer of grain, giving the overall image a spectacular cinematic appeal. Contrast is spot-on and well-balanced with brilliant, crisp whites, and blacks are accurate and inky rich with excellent detailing in the darkest portions of the frame. The color palette, of course, benefits the most from the restoration, showing bold saturation in the primaries and animated secondary hues that make skin tones appear accurate and healthy. (Video Rating: 5/5)

The sequel arrives for a Blu-ray rematch with the same, identical AVC encode as the previous box set. Although resolution and clarity is an improvement over its DVD counterpart, overall definition is not up to high-def standards, looking quite soft for a majority of the time. A few scenes are nicely detailed, but they are far and few in between. Presented in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio, the video comes with a fine layer of grain, but it's also accompanied by a fair amount of white specks and dirt. Colors are bold and cleanly rendered while contrast is a bit on the average side of things, yet consistent. Black levels, on the other hand, are strong and accurate with passable shadow detailing. (Video Rating: 3/5)

Rocky III

The next sequel in the franchise takes another punch at Blu-ray with the same 1080p picture as before, which is not an entirely bad thing because the source used appears to be in fairly good condition. The 1.85:1 image displays a thin, appreciable layer of grain throughout, excellent contrast with crisp whites and strong black levels. The color palette is bold and full-bodied with warm secondary hues and healthy skin tones in the cast. Fine object and textural details are quite sharp and well-defined, all things considered, but the overall presentation does have its fair share of soft moments and only average resolution. (Video Rating: 3.5/5)

Rocky IV

Part four goes the distance with another identical but solid AVC-encoded transfer, showing good detailing in the clothing, the wood cabin and surrounding foliage. Skin tones appear natural and revealing with surprising lifelike complexions during the many close-ups. The elements used also tend to show their age, as several sequences can look poorly resolved, faded and a bit discolored. The 1.85:1 image is also awash with a fine layer of grain that's consistent, giving the presentation an attractive film-like appeal. Colors are mostly bold, stable and accurately rendered. Contrast and brightness is a hit and miss with pleasing blacks and generally crisp whites, but the picture can seem a tad faded and dull in a few spots. (Video Rating: 3/5)

Rocky V

As expected, number five shows up for a rematch with the same mixed-bag high-def transfer as before. Film grain is sometimes thin and natural while other times, it litters the screen in noticeably thick chunks, almost looking like mosquito noise. Colors are good and nicely saturated, and facial complexions appeal healthy. Contrast is average with only a couple appreciable moments, but much of the picture falls flat with several highlights running hot. Black levels are in better shape and more consistent with strong shadow delineation. Fine object and textural details are a hit and miss, sometimes well-defined but for the most part soft and blurry with a splattering of dirt and white specks. (Video Rating: 3/5)

Rocky Balboa

The final chapter in the Rocky saga comes out of retirement with an identical but still spectacular AVC-encoded performance that wows with crystal-clear clarity and definition. Stylishly gritty and deliberately made to look aged, the 1.85:1 image is awash with a noticeable layer of grain that's consistent, giving the presentation a nice film-like appearance. Details are sharp and resolute, revealing every pore, scar and negligible blemish in faces, especially during close-ups. Fine lines along buildings, furniture and clothing are resolute and distinct throughout. Contrast is intentionally reserved, giving the picture a grayish tone, but well-balanced with crisp whites. Black levels are true and inky with excellent detailing in the darkest portion of the frame. Primaries are bold and animated while secondary hues are full-bodied. (Video Rating: 4.5/5)

Rocky

On the audio side of things, the classic film walks into the ring with what sounds like the same DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack as previous high-def release. Comparatively speaking, I noticed little discernible difference between the tracks. But to tell the truth, I personally enjoy the way 'Rocky' sounds on Blu-ray even though it doesn't make the best impression, which has more to do with the original design than a fault in the codec. The lossless mix is an understandably front-heavy presentation, which is greatly appreciated, and maintains a terrifically engaging soundstage with a good, detailed mid-range and some enjoyable low-frequency effects during the final fight. Dialogue reproduction is a bit odd and arguably the weakest aspect, sometimes coming in loud and clear while other times barely audible. (Audio Rating: 3/5)

Rocky II

Like the video, the second entry in the Rocky saga weighs in with the same DTS-HD MA soundtrack as before, and a pretty solid track it is. Admittedly, the lossless mix is largely limited by the source and the original design, which only means that it is a front-heavy presentation. Imaging is surprisingly wide and welcoming without seeming forced or over-extended, exhibiting a clean dynamic range even though there isn't much going on in the upper frequencies. Atmospherics, like the roar of boxing fans, fill the entire soundstage convincingly and satisfyingly while a few low-frequency effects add some weight to the music and punches. With good, strong vocals in the center, the high rez track wins by a split-decision. (Audio Rating: 3/5)

Rocky III

Again, part three comes in with the same DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack as before, but unlike the first two, the original stereo design offers a slightly more impressive and engaging presentation. A few ambient effects and music bleed into the surrounds with satisfying effectiveness while the mid-range is clean and detailed from beginning to end. Imaging is expansive and broad with excellent separation and balance between the channels, and low bass is surprisingly hearty and responsive, especially when providing weight to Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger." Dialogue reproduction is precise and intelligible in the center. (Audio Rating: 3.5/5)

Rocky IV

Like its predecessor, the third sequel in the franchise makes its way to the ring with a strong and satisfying DTS-HD MA soundtrack. The largely front-heavy mix displays a wide and welcoming soundstage with great movement and convincing off-screen effects. The mid-range exhibits crisp details and outstanding separation, allowing the music and song selections to really shine and dominate the entire soundfield with superb clarity. Bass isn't quite as impressive, but it's adequate and hearty enough to provide some pleasing weight. A few, minor atmospherics bleed into the rears for ambience, but nothing that really envelopes. Vocals are clean and well-prioritized throughout, making it a great lossless track. (Audio Rating: 3.5/5)

Rocky V

In the audio department, the fifth chapter of the series offers an identical DTS-HD MA track that mostly occupies the fronts with a good deal of activity. Imaging is attractive and generally pleasing with excellent channel separation and a detailed mid-range. The music and song selections do the majority of the work with minor bleeding into the surrounds, but several discrete effects broaden the soundfield nicely and occasionally enliven the room with the cheers and jeers of spectators. Low bass is heftier and responsive than initialed expected, providing a good deal of weight to the lossless mix, while dialogue reproduction is clean and intelligible in the center. (Audio Rating: 3.5/5)

Rocky Balboa

The last entry in the franchise brings the epic tale of a sports legend to a close with a hard-hitting uncompressed PCM punch that more than makes up for it predecessors. Crystalline vocals are lucid and precise in the center of a wide, welcoming soundstage that fills the room with penetrating dynamics and detailed acoustics. Convincing off-screen effects move across all three channels flawlessly and effortlessly, delivering light, subtle background sounds that create an appreciable wall of sound. The low end provides a hearty oomph and thump to the music and to a few choice punches during the final match. Atmospherics are artfully employed to mildly expand the soundfield and generate a satisfying ambience, but the last half hour comes alive the roar of the crowd clapping, chanting or sneering, which is quite enveloping. (Audio Rating: 4.5/5)

Aaron Peck sums it up best when he writes:

The 'Rocky' franchise is one of the most iconic film franchises of all time. The original 'Rocky' film still stands as one of the finest American cinematic experiences that can be had. Each film gives us new insight into the character of Rocky and how he changes and grows throughout his life. It's a fantastic journey, one that can be lived over and over with this wonderful collection.

This Blu-ray box set features a brand new 4K scan of the 1976 classic, which looks utterly fantastic, but the rest of the films are unfortunately the same high-def transfer as the "Undisputed Collection." The audio presentations are also the same lossless tracks, but that's not an entirely bad thing. Much of the bonus material is ported over from the previous box set, but also includes a few items that were missing, along with one new surprise. For devoted, loyal fight fans who held out this long, this new collection is a must-own while owners of the previous set will be tempted by the new remaster of the original.

[review_movie] =>

In an effort to not just rehash each of the 'Rocky' films with two paragraph reviews, I'm going to take a different road with this review by reviewing and discussing the 'Rocky' saga as a whole.*

I remember getting 'Rocky IV' for a birthday one year. After watching it I had the distinct impression that I wanted to work out in the snow. So I went for a run in the falling snow with the 'Rocky' theme song playing over and over in my head. I became an instant fan of boxing, only to find out that real boxing was nothing like the boxing featured in the 'Rocky' films where almost every punch lands with ferocious velocity and no one tries to block anything.

'Rocky' was a monumental achievement both in storytelling and box office success. It won the Best Picture Oscar in 1977 and went on to become one of the most iconic films in American culture. Few movies have had such a huge impact on my life as the 'Rocky' films. It wasn't until years later, when I rewatched the first 'Rocky,' that I was really able to understand the meaning behind that film. Rocky is forever a humble guy who is just trying his best with the lot he's been given in life.

No name Rocky Balboa is offered a chance to fight Heavyweight World Champion Apollo Creed, just because cocky Creed likes the sound of Rocky's nickname "The Italian Stallion." 'Rocky' transcends every other sports movie out there by being about a man who just wants to prove he can go the distance, rather than win outright. Most of the subsequent 'Rocky' films become about winning, but the first one was a beautiful tale of a man who was given a chance and took full advantage of it, he proves to the world what he can do. The first film is also about the innocent love Rocky has for the local pet store girl named Adrian. Adrian never talks and Rocky never stops talking, they're a perfect match.

The first 'Rocky' requires a little life experience to get all the nuances and meaning behind it. The rest of the films have their own beauty to them (except 'Rocky V'), but the first film is by far the best of the series.

The interesting thing about the later films is that there is still a story to tell with the perpetual underdog's life. His character continues to evolve and change throughout the series, but that humility and drive to excel are always there. In 'Rocky II,' we see that Rocky really has no idea what to do with the new found wealth that he's going to get from doing commercials.

'Rocky III' shows us an upset and ungrateful Paulie, as well as Rocky's beloved manager Mickey passing away. In a touching scene, where Rocky cries over the body of his fallen manager we are all reminded that this tough-as-nails man still has one of the biggest hearts out there.

'Rocky IV' gives us a glimpse at Rocky's determination and how Creed's cockiness brings him down. Many people consider this one to be their favorite film of the series. It's my second favorite, behind the first film, but for different reasons. By this time they had perfected the fighting scenes and upped the dramatic effect of the sound effects. Out of the series this one is the most fun to watch, but not the most meaningful.

The 'Rocky' saga embodies the underdog story to perfection. Like I said, he's always considered the underdog. That never fazes him though. His outlook on life can be compared to another movie character... Forrest Gump. Rocky has the best intentions, and always wants to do right by his friends and family even if they treat him terribly (I'm looking at you Paulie). Devastation meets him at every turn, but he perseveres.

Rocky is so iconic and so beloved because we love those gritty stories about people who aren't supposed to succeed, but do. We love seeing someone go from rags to riches. The story of Rocky is full of lessons on life like how to treat other people, what true friendship is, and how love conquers all. Sure I might be getting a little sappy here, but to this day, each and every 'Rocky' film (with the exception of 'Rocky V') chokes me up more than once during its runtime.

* For those of you that want to know my star ratings for each film they are as follows:

'Rocky' – 5 stars

'Rocky II' – 4 stars

'Rocky III' – 3.5 stars

'Rocky IV' – 4 stars

'Rocky V' – 2 stars

'Rocky Balboa' – 4 stars

The Blu-ray: Vital Disc Stats

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment brings the 'Rocky' franchise to Blu-ray once more, dubbing the rematch "The Heavyweight Collection." The first five discs are Region Free, BD50s while the last is a Region A locked, BD50. All six are housed inside a slightly oversized blue case with a glossy slipcover. Disc one commences with a Blu-ray promo before switching to an animated menu screen with full-motion clips and music. The next four go directly to a static, silent screen, and disc six goes to a menu screen with full-motion clips and music.

Rocky

The original sports classic comes out swinging with a phenomenal, reference-quality 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode that surpasses all previous Blu-ray editions. Struck from the original elements and remastered at 4K resolution, the picture is absolutely gorgeous, revealing every detail and fine line in buildings and clothing with resolute, distinct clarity. A couple shots are a tad on the soft side, but they're a result of the original photography, not a fault in the transfer. The 1.85:1 image is awash with a very fine layer of grain, giving the overall image a spectacular cinematic appeal. Contrast is spot-on and well-balanced with brilliant, crisp whites, and blacks are accurate and inky rich with excellent detailing in the darkest portions of the frame. The color palette, of course, benefits the most from the restoration, showing bold saturation in the primaries and animated secondary hues that make skin tones appear accurate and healthy. (Video Rating: 5/5)

Rocky II

The sequel arrives for a Blu-ray rematch with the same, identical AVC encode as the previous box set. Although resolution and clarity is an improvement over its DVD counterpart, overall definition is not up to high-def standards, looking quite soft for a majority of the time. A few scenes are nicely detailed, but they are far and few in between. Presented in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio, the video comes with a fine layer of grain, but it's also accompanied by a fair amount of white specks and dirt. Colors are bold and cleanly rendered while contrast is a bit on the average side of things, yet consistent. Black levels, on the other hand, are strong and accurate with passable shadow detailing. (Video Rating: 3/5)

Rocky III

The next sequel in the franchise takes another punch at Blu-ray with the same 1080p picture as before, which is not an entirely bad thing because the source used appears to be in fairly good condition. The 1.85:1 image displays a thin, appreciable layer of grain throughout, excellent contrast with crisp whites and strong black levels. The color palette is bold and full-bodied with warm secondary hues and healthy skin tones in the cast. Fine object and textural details are quite sharp and well-defined, all things considered, but the overall presentation does have its fair share of soft moments and only average resolution. (Video Rating: 3.5/5)

Rocky IV

Part four goes the distance with another identical but solid AVC-encoded transfer, showing good detailing in the clothing, the wood cabin and surrounding foliage. Skin tones appear natural and revealing with surprising lifelike complexions during the many close-ups. The elements used also tend to show their age, as several sequences can look poorly resolved, faded and a bit discolored. The 1.85:1 image is also awash with a fine layer of grain that's consistent, giving the presentation an attractive film-like appeal. Colors are mostly bold, stable and accurately rendered. Contrast and brightness is a hit and miss with pleasing blacks and generally crisp whites, but the picture can seem a tad faded and dull in a few spots. (Video Rating: 3/5)

Rocky V

As expected, number five shows up for a rematch with the same mixed-bag high-def transfer as before. Film grain is sometimes thin and natural while other times, it litters the screen in noticeably thick chunks, almost looking like mosquito noise. Colors are good and nicely saturated, and facial complexions appeal healthy. Contrast is average with only a couple appreciable moments, but much of the picture falls flat with several highlights running hot. Black levels are in better shape and more consistent with strong shadow delineation. Fine object and textural details are a hit and miss, sometimes well-defined but for the most part soft and blurry with a splattering of dirt and white specks. (Video Rating: 3/5)

Rocky Balboa

The final chapter in the Rocky saga comes out of retirement with an identical but still spectacular AVC-encoded performance that wows with crystal-clear clarity and definition. Stylishly gritty and deliberately made to look aged, the 1.85:1 image is awash with a noticeable layer of grain that's consistent, giving the presentation a nice film-like appearance. Details are sharp and resolute, revealing every pore, scar and negligible blemish in faces, especially during close-ups. Fine lines along buildings, furniture and clothing are resolute and distinct throughout. Contrast is intentionally reserved, giving the picture a grayish tone, but well-balanced with crisp whites. Black levels are true and inky with excellent detailing in the darkest portion of the frame. Primaries are bold and animated while secondary hues are full-bodied. (Video Rating: 4.5/5)

Rocky

On the audio side of things, the classic film walks into the ring with what sounds like the same DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack as previous high-def release. Comparatively speaking, I noticed little discernible difference between the tracks. But to tell the truth, I personally enjoy the way 'Rocky' sounds on Blu-ray even though it doesn't make the best impression, which has more to do with the original design than a fault in the codec. The lossless mix is an understandably front-heavy presentation, which is greatly appreciated, and maintains a terrifically engaging soundstage with a good, detailed mid-range and some enjoyable low-frequency effects during the final fight. Dialogue reproduction is a bit odd and arguably the weakest aspect, sometimes coming in loud and clear while other times barely audible. (Audio Rating: 3/5)

Rocky II

Like the video, the second entry in the Rocky saga weighs in with the same DTS-HD MA soundtrack as before, and a pretty solid track it is. Admittedly, the lossless mix is largely limited by the source and the original design, which only means that it is a front-heavy presentation. Imaging is surprisingly wide and welcoming without seeming forced or over-extended, exhibiting a clean dynamic range even though there isn't much going on in the upper frequencies. Atmospherics, like the roar of boxing fans, fill the entire soundstage convincingly and satisfyingly while a few low-frequency effects add some weight to the music and punches. With good, strong vocals in the center, the high rez track wins by a split-decision. (Audio Rating: 3/5)

Rocky III

Again, part three comes in with the same DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack as before, but unlike the first two, the original stereo design offers a slightly more impressive and engaging presentation. A few ambient effects and music bleed into the surrounds with satisfying effectiveness while the mid-range is clean and detailed from beginning to end. Imaging is expansive and broad with excellent separation and balance between the channels, and low bass is surprisingly hearty and responsive, especially when providing weight to Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger." Dialogue reproduction is precise and intelligible in the center. (Audio Rating: 3.5/5)

Rocky IV

Like its predecessor, the third sequel in the franchise makes its way to the ring with a strong and satisfying DTS-HD MA soundtrack. The largely front-heavy mix displays a wide and welcoming soundstage with great movement and convincing off-screen effects. The mid-range exhibits crisp details and outstanding separation, allowing the music and song selections to really shine and dominate the entire soundfield with superb clarity. Bass isn't quite as impressive, but it's adequate and hearty enough to provide some pleasing weight. A few, minor atmospherics bleed into the rears for ambience, but nothing that really envelopes. Vocals are clean and well-prioritized throughout, making it a great lossless track. (Audio Rating: 3.5/5)

Rocky V

In the audio department, the fifth chapter of the series offers an identical DTS-HD MA track that mostly occupies the fronts with a good deal of activity. Imaging is attractive and generally pleasing with excellent channel separation and a detailed mid-range. The music and song selections do the majority of the work with minor bleeding into the surrounds, but several discrete effects broaden the soundfield nicely and occasionally enliven the room with the cheers and jeers of spectators. Low bass is heftier and responsive than initialed expected, providing a good deal of weight to the lossless mix, while dialogue reproduction is clean and intelligible in the center. (Audio Rating: 3.5/5)

Rocky Balboa

The last entry in the franchise brings the epic tale of a sports legend to a close with a hard-hitting uncompressed PCM punch that more than makes up for it predecessors. Crystalline vocals are lucid and precise in the center of a wide, welcoming soundstage that fills the room with penetrating dynamics and detailed acoustics. Convincing off-screen effects move across all three channels flawlessly and effortlessly, delivering light, subtle background sounds that create an appreciable wall of sound. The low end provides a hearty oomph and thump to the music and to a few choice punches during the final match. Atmospherics are artfully employed to mildly expand the soundfield and generate a satisfying ambience, but the last half hour comes alive the roar of the crowd clapping, chanting or sneering, which is quite enveloping. (Audio Rating: 4.5/5)

Aaron Peck sums it up best when he writes:

The 'Rocky' franchise is one of the most iconic film franchises of all time. The original 'Rocky' film still stands as one of the finest American cinematic experiences that can be had. Each film gives us new insight into the character of Rocky and how he changes and grows throughout his life. It's a fantastic journey, one that can be lived over and over with this wonderful collection.

This Blu-ray box set features a brand new 4K scan of the 1976 classic, which looks utterly fantastic, but the rest of the films are unfortunately the same high-def transfer as the "Undisputed Collection." The audio presentations are also the same lossless tracks, but that's not an entirely bad thing. Much of the bonus material is ported over from the previous box set, but also includes a few items that were missing, along with one new surprise. For devoted, loyal fight fans who held out this long, this new collection is a must-own while owners of the previous set will be tempted by the new remaster of the original.

Super Troopers

In this outrageously arresting comedy, Captain O'Hagan (Brian Cox) tries in vain to control his bumbling team of Vermont Highway Patrolmen. But when the opportunity to solve a real crime rolls their way, the formerly inept Super Troopers pounce into action to become highway heroes!

Super Troopers 2

When an international border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the fun-loving Vermont Highway Patrolmen – Mac, Thorny, Foster, Rabbit and Farva – are called in to resolve the situation. The Broken Lizard comedy team of Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Erik Solhanske and Paul Soter return to star alongside Brian Cox, Rob Lowe, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Lynda Carter. Featuring hilarious bonus material on the making of the film along with extended and deleted scenes and a Kevin Heffernan featurette, the time is “meow” for SUPER TROOPERS 2.

Steven Wilson, described by The Telegraph as 'the most successful British musician most people have never heard of' embarked on his hugely ambitious sold-out To The Bone world tour in 2018. Founder and frontman of adored outsider rock band Porcupine Tree; one half of Blackfield; a Grammy nominated back catalogue remixer for acts like Roxy Music, King Crimson and Tears for Fears, as well as a solo artist hugely respected for a series of visionary LPs, from 2008's Insurgentes, to his bestselling album To The Bone. Home Invasion celebrates the very best from across his career so far, presented as a cinematic multi-media show with glorious visualisations and outstanding musicianship. This stunning concert film was captured on the final night of his three night sold out residency at the Royal Albert Hall, London in March 2018, concerts which were hailed by media and fans alike as among the very best shows of the year.

Psycho Killer is a film ready to rock you to the core. A doe-eyed knife-wielding killer is on the loose in a small town slicing and dicing men of questionable intent left and right. As her brutality leaves a town littered with corpses, her unquenchable blood-lust is lost on her young lover who is willing to pursue her regardless of the obvious warning signs of psychosis.

Trump has won and the Alt-Right is on the rise. His improbable victory brought a previously hidden movement out of the fringe. On the other side, the shadow collective Antifa and civil rights organizations like the SPLC and NAACP are fighting back in the courts, the media, and the streets. ALT-RIGHT: AGE OF RAGE is a hard-hitting expose, investigating major players on both sides of the battle. As tensions between Americans in the first year of the Trump era boil over, the battle culminates in the tragic events of Charlottesville.

Georgette Dubois (Falon Joslyn) is a professional skeptic hired by Management (Bill Moseley) to debunk those urban legends. Shes a scientist, meticulously searching for something to believe in. Her every encounter with the supernatural appears to have a rational explanation. None of that experience as a paranormal investigator prepared her to be trapped high above the city with genuinely ghoulish horrors. Instead, Georgette must reconnect with her spiritual roots if she hopes to survive.

When the two shots rang out, Bruce Wayne's life changed forever. He pledged himself to justice, and he held that oath for years. Wearing many names - the Dark Knight, The World's Greatest Detective, the Caped Crusader and Gotham's Greatest Hero - he battled tragic foes like The Joker, Penguin, Mr. Freeze and so many more. But deep inside, he knew that he shared something with them that most of humanity wouldn't understand - a commitment to the fight. The acclaimed, Emmy-winning TV series redefined this complex man as an edgy hero struggling for revenge and redemption each time he donned the cape and cowl, and this comprehensive collection contains every episode, with all the allies, criminals and showdowns in Batman's history.

Everyone's favorite Dark Knight rises from DVD to Blu-ray with Batman: The Complete Animated Series. This monster 12-disc set contains all original episodes of the series along with the two companion films, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero. The restoration work of the original episodes is magnificent. The new audio mix gives plenty of sonic action to each episode. And the bonus features package is an impressive undertaking, offering fans hours of content. Packed with three Funko Mini-Pops of Batman, Joker, and Harley Quinn and a set of lenticular stills, this really is The Complete Package. Highly Recommended

[review_movie] =>

I wasn't born a Batman fan, I was made one on the day my parents took me to the theater to see Tim Burton's Batman just ahead of my 7th birthday. From the opening movements of that movie's iconic score and that first rooftop fight with the two thieves, I became an instant Batman fan. I immediately stopped reading Spider-Man comics and went full on die-hard Batman comic collecting. Didn't matter if the issue was old or new, I bought it. Once Batman Returns left theaters and Warner Bros. announced Batman: The Animated Series, I was glued to my television set after school eagerly awaiting the two-episode premiere. 

Batman The Complete Animated Series

The first time Danny Elfman's rejiggered theme started playing against the neo-noir deco animation styling, I knew this show would be something special. And man, that first time Man-Bat appeared on my TV screen was probably the first time I let out what I now affectionally call "nerd squeals." The sound of pure joy and excitement that simply can't be contained as you witness a character come to life in a way that you'd only previously experienced in single comic book frames. And that's how things would go for me. Each week a new episode premiered and I would be there with my after-school snack waiting to devour another adventure producer Brice Timm cooked up with his principal voice cast of Kevin Conroy as Batman, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as Alfred, Robert Hastings as Commissioner Gordon, Loren Lester as Robin, Robert Costanzo, as Harvey Bullock. That says nothing of the incredible guest cast with Mark Hamill's Joker, Adrienne Barbeau as Catwoman, Richard Moll as Two-Face and not to mention Arleen Sorkin's now iconic Harley Quinn. There's a good reason why they keep coming back to this voice cast for animated films and video games - they're perfect!  

Batman The Complete Animated Series

As the quality of the live action movies quickly dwindled, The Animated Series became all the more important and treasured. I frustratingly staggered out of Batman Forever and later Batman and Robin wondering if no one developing those movies even bothered to watch The Animated Series, let alone read any of the comic books in order to screw up so many iconic characters so badly. When Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero came out, they were like a balm for the terrible cinematic burn of those last two live-action films before the franchise underwent its reboot Batman Begins

Batman The Complete Animated Series

To this day, I am amazed at how well Timm and company were able to pluck iconic characters and many obscure characters out of the comics, give them their own unique spin while staying true to their roots. Clayface, Poison Ivy, Scarface, the Penguin, Killer Croc, Bane, let alone adding to the heated fan debate and confusion about pronouncing Ra's al Ghul's name correctly while maintaining his backstory! 

My absolute favorite episode is "Beware the Gray Ghost," featuring a guest voice appearance by Adam West as an aged iconic superhero actor. There were many, many great episodes throughout the series, but this one still gets me a little emotional every time. And it was awesome watching it all over again in HD. Now that Mr. West is no longer with us, it became even more poignant and impressive how respectful this series was to the long history of Batman.

It'd been a couple years since I last took a look through The Animated Series. As Warner Archive began releasing Mask of the Phantasm and SubZero on Blu-ray I was very tempted to buy those and then cut my losses and pick up the series on DVD. I honestly never thought it would come to Blu-ray, and considered myself already very lucky that Batman '66 made it to Blu-ray at all. Now it's here and I couldn't be happier. With over 40 hours of content, I've got several days of gleeful nostalgia-infused binge watching ahead of me. 

[NOTE: Episodes are in production order, not broadcast premier order. ]

Vital Disc Stats: The Blu-ray

Batman: The Complete Animated Series finally makes its long-awaited Blu-ray debut courtesy of Warner Brothers in a striking 12-disc Blu-ray set comprised of the television show along with the Warner Archive discs for Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero. The outer case is a rather flimsy, easily dented and damaged paper box that holds the set together with the three exclusive mini Funko Pop figures of Batman, Joker, and Harley Quinn, the seven 3D lenticular stills, and the Blu-rays. Thankfully you don't really need to hold onto the paper outer box if you're intending to keep everything out on display, the Blu-rays have their own attractive black and red box that sits nicely on the shelf without taking up too much space. 

The 12 discs are housed in an attractive black hardcover book with a sturdy black cardboard slipcover with red foil inlay with the Batman symbol on the back and the Batman silhouette and show logo on the front. The discs are safe and secure in the book and slide out easily without risk of damage to the discs or packaging.

The discs load directly to static-image main menus featuring Warner's traditional navigation system. A digital slip is also included for the entire Animated series - not the films. Currently this only redeems in SD on VUDU, so hopefully, that'll get upgraded to HD soon with these new masters.

Batman The Complete Animated Series

Presented in proper 1.33:1 broadcast framing in 1080p, I'll just say my jaw dropped the first time the amazing intro title sequence came up.  Batman: The Animated Series is simply beautiful. The colors are rich with vibrant primaries and bold blues, crimson reds, and bright yellows just leaping off the screen. Detail levels are incredibly crisp to the point you can actually spot fine lines in the characters that I hadn't seen before. You can even spot the occasional brushstroke in the cells. On top of that, I felt like I was experiencing a measure of true depth in the animation layering - especially in scenes where there aren't any fast cuts or camera pans. If that wasn't enough, this image is incredibly clean free of any dirt or speckling that would frequently appear in the previous DVD releases. Film grain is intact and maintains a subtle presence without becoming too noisy or intrusive. 

Batman The Complete Animated Series

Occasionally, grain thickens and gives a bit of a flicker effect, but those moments are so brief you could blink and miss them entirely. Ultimately, the image maintains a true film-like appearance. Given Warner Archive's transfer for Mask of the Phantasm, my expectations were pretty high for this release, but also realistic considering the number of episodes. After digging through a few episodes on each disk, I'm excited to report that the show is practically flawless and proves to be another remarkable restoration from the team at Warner Bros. There is some slight speckling, but that only appears to be grit or debris trapped under individual cells. As I dig further through each disc and not just the cherry-picked favorite episodes from each season for this review, I'll report any anomalies I encounter but as of now, I'm wide-eyed amazed by this release.

[review_audio] =>

Batman The Complete Animated Series

Batman: The Animated Series pulls out one hell of a DTS-HD MA 2.0 audio mix from its utility belt for each episode. When that theme song kicks in at the beginning of each episode I just want to slam my thumb on the volume button. Don't get me wrong, levels are just fine, there's no softness or hard-to-hear spots. I just wanted it really loud for that Elfman theme music! Dialogue is crystal clear throughout. Sound effects are particularly lively and robust, allowing for a fully balanced presentation with some great low tones for extra atmosphere. When the Batmobile fires up its turbine engine, that roar has got some really impressive punch to it! Explosions, gunfire, and whenever Batman fires off his grappling hook or throws out his Batarang give the mix some terrific imaging and channel movement. Each episode is clean and clear without any anomalies to report.

Batman The Complete Animated Series Blu-ray

Like Man-Bat, the bonus features selection for Batman: The Complete Animated Series is an absolute beast. A number of these features have been ported over from the DVD releases. The commentaries are great listening. Since I didn't own the series beforehand, these were a lot of fun to pick through while I pulled this review together. The behind-the-scenes and cast retrospective material is fantastic and the character design segments are a real treat, especially Harley Quinn who was created for the show and then became official comic canon. There is so much new and archival material here, it's great to see that WB went full out and truly gave fans the total package deal.

Batman The Complete Animated Series

Batman: The Complete Animated Series is a home-run Blu-ray release. The show continues to be one of the truest adaptations of the comic books, while also being approachable to newcomers. You don't need to be steeped in the lore to watch it, although it does add to the enjoyment if you know the references. Warner Bros. has really outdone themselves with this release, going full out with a masterful restoration effort. The video transfers for each episode are exceptional and the show sounds better than ever. Not to mention the hours upon hours of bonus features you've got to dig through. With roughly 40 hours worth of episodes and movies, this set is a beast. It's a must own for the die-hard Bat-fans out there and even if you're a casual fan and don't know the episodes like the back of your hand, this is still a Highly Recommended set offering a massive improvement over the previous DVDs.

Jill has just returned home from college to the rural farm community where she grew up, only to discover that her parents have mysteriously vanished. Learning that her father, a banker, has become the local pariah for overseeing land foreclosures on local farmers, Jill quickly becomes the victim of a series of strange and increasingly depraved assaults. With only her childhood friend and former lover, Gary, and his mentally unstable brother, Mervo (Tiny Tim), willing to believe her, Jill begins to fear for her life. All the while, a stocking-masked killer is abducting, torturing, and brutally killing those closest to Jill…

An unrelentingly grim and perverse psycho-sexual thriller, BLOOD HARVEST mixes gruesome throat slashings, copious amounts of T&A, and an unhinged supporting performance from music sensation, Tiny Tim. Long available only in heavily cut and grey market editions, Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents BLOOD HARVEST on Blu-ray, fully uncut, uncensored, and newly restored in 4k from its recently discovered original camera negative.

Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him. Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls them racists, white supremacists and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right "by any means necessary." Through stunning historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, Death of a Nation cuts through progressive big lies to expose hidden history and explosive truths. Lincoln united his party and saved America from the Democrats for the first time. Can Trump—and we—come together and save America for the second time? Death of a Nation: Can We Save America A Second Time, is the latest film from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza, and Academy Award Winning producer, Gerald R. Molen.

Joel (James Bond III) grew up in the church but has started questioning his beliefs. After sensing a supernatural presence from his deceased father, Joel becomes compelled to visit his cousin, K (Kadeem Hardison) in New York. But shortly after arriving, he and K become embroiled in a series of mysterious homicides of local men, all of whom were last seen in the company of a mysterious and beautiful woman, who has now set her bloodthirsty sights on K...

The sole directorial effort from child actor James Bond III, who also wrote, produced, and starred, DEF BY TEMPTATION is a macabre, neon tinged portrait of late 80s Brooklyn, blending supernatural horror and religious mysticism, punctuated by an electrifying hip hop and R&B soundtrack. Featuring an early performance from Samuel L. Jackson alongside character actor Bill Nunn (DO THE RIGHT THING) and exquisite visuals from one of the late 20th century's most gifted cinematographers, Ernest Dickerson (JUICE), Vinegar Syndrome brings DEF BY TEMPTATION to Blu-ray, newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative.

This is the city ... and only Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks can save it in this hilarious box-office blockbuster that pays homage to the famed original police dramas of the '50s and '60s.

Aykroyd is at his comedic best as the namesake nephew of Detective Sgt. Joe Friday. Like his uncle, he's a blue-suited, by-the-rules cop who reluctantly joins forces with his footloose partner Pep Streebek (Hanks) to rescue the City of Angels from the machinations of a power-mad Reverend and corrupt Police Commissioners. And those are "just the facts" of this hysterically funny action-comedy!

Former soldier Shingo Hojo, French spy Remy Shimada, and Bronx gangster Killy Gagley aren’t exactly your “hero of justice” types.

Now pursued around the world in their teleporting carrier Good Thunder, GoShogun’s piloting team must keep Docooga at bay while foiling their eccentric enforcers, righting wrongs they come across, and occasionally facing ghosts from their own tragic pasts. It’s an unexpected combination of drama, satire, and giant robot action like nothing you’ve ever seen before! This complete collection contains all 26 episodes in Japanese with English subtitles.

An irreverent burst of anarchic energy that wowed attendees of the 1963 New York Film Festival, Hallelujah the Hills is a landmark film of the New American Cinema, presented here in a new 2K restoration. Directed with improvisatorial flair by Adolfas Mekas, a co-founder of Film Culture magazine with his brother Jonas (Walden), Hallelujah the Hills follows two wildly impulsive young men who are in love with the same woman (played by two different actresses). A slapstick love letter to cinema, this fiercely independent wonder laid the groundwork for all the free-spirited filmmakers to follow.

Special Features: Booklet essay by film historian John Pruitt | Hallelujah the Villa (2006), an interview with Adolfas Mekas (27 minutes) | The First New York Film Festival (1963), a roundtable discussion with Adolfas Mekas, Joseph Losey, Richard Roud, and Amos Vogel

Hitorijime My Hero contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Yukina Hiiro. Masahiro Setagawa has been having problems. His dad's gone, his mom's apathetic, and the local delinquents have turned him into a lackey and errand boy. Rescue comes in the most unexpected form, however, when a street fighter known as "Bear Killer" puts the beat down on the bad boys and takes Masa under his protective wing.The surprising part is that Masa already knew his rescuer, because not only is Kousuke Oshiba the older brother of Masa's best friend Kensuke, he's also Masa's homeroom teacher! But with so many ties between them already, is it surprising that Masa starts to feel more for Kousuke than a normal student teacher relationship? Math class will never be the same once Masa realizes that the numbers in his stars are all adding up to one person! Special Features: Clean Opening Animation and Clean Closing Animation

When the son (played by Cocteau regular Jean Marais) meets a girl and leaves the family circle, the mother flies into a rage. But when the boy tells his father, it sets off another drama - she is none other than the girl the father has been secretly seeing. Tragedy strikes in this time-honored tale of fledglings leaving the family nest.

[review_introduction] =>

Nicolas Cage stars in the fantasy horror film Mandy as a shattered man seeking bloody vengeance. Filtered through a euphoric lens of surreal visualizations and gruesome violence, the film is a slow burn journey into hell that only rewards those patient enough experience this waking nightmare. RLJE Films' Blu-ray provides an impressive HD presentation given the director’s visual aesthetic and a limited set of bonus features sure to please fans of this insane masterpiece. Highly Recommended

“You exude a cosmic darkness.”

Growing up in a time when movies followed a simple progression from trailer to cinema to VHS, there was always a sense of heightened anticipation. The payoff being your chance to catch the movie in a theater or perhaps stumbling onto it channel surfing one night. With the advent of streaming services and VOD, there are new and exciting ways to get movies into your eyeballs. Mandy should be a low budget straight-to-video horror film that few would champion outside of established genre geeks even with a mega-star like Nicolas Cage. Where Panos Cosmatos’ film succeeds is in making a trippy low-budget horror film into an experience rather than fodder for an abandoned streaming queue.

Mandy is the new midnight movie to see with your weird friends. 

In 1983, logger and stoic Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) lives with his girlfriend Mandy (Andrea Riseborough) in a secluded cabin. The soulmates carry on with their day jobs but retire to their rustic dwelling to watch old horror movies and revel in the stream of sci-fi/fantasy art that Many produces. Their bond is unbreakable and belies the simple lives of a grocery clerk and a logger. Out one day communing with nature, Mandy catches the eye of failed-rock-star-turned-hippie-cult-leader, Jeremiah Sands. The cult then summons a demonic biker gang, the Black Skulls, from the depths of hell to abduct Mandy. Drugged with hallucinogens, she is presented to Jeremiah. He monologues for a bit before playing a sample of his folk record. Instead of submitting to the cult leader, Mandy does the unthinkable: she laughs at him. Eventually Red seeks revenge for the cult’s devious actions in a bloody disconnect from reality where nothing stands in his way. Armed with a homemade battle ax, Red leaves a brutal path of destruction in his wake that is the stuff of nightmares. 

Mandy is a wild, wild ride of a film that attempts to merge 80’s exploitation with trippy psychedelic visuals which becomes a mesmerizing love letter to an era of fantasy pulp novels, Satanic Panic, and custom van murals. Let’s just say it isn’t for everyone. Divided into chapters with unique headings, it's easier to divide the film in half: Before Cage Kills / After Cage Kills. Lasting impressions of the film will no doubt involve the latter, but Mandy is an arresting film from the beginning. Soaked in layer upon layer of neon lights, fog (so much fog), and lens flares it's a unique film to witness. Even though it contains themes on religion, fragile male egos, and love Mandy demands that you live the experience of the film rather than actively analyze every frame.   

Let’s talk about Nicolas Cage. There’s been a great deal of praise on Cage’s performance here being an unleashed berserker that fulfills the axiom of “Cage Rage”. While he is well cast for the calm and understated Red Miller, his performance is memorable in the violent parts of this film not because of what he does, but that he is willing to commit to those scenes. Put any other actor in some white briefs and a tiger t-shirt covered in blood and vodka and you won’t get the same commitment that Cage offers. His ability to surrender to these moments, no matter how insane, shows why he is one of the best working actors. Believe me, after a second or third viewing you’ll begin to see it. You could put anyone in those briefs, but would they really make the same kind of impact? 

Andrea Riseborough creates within Mandy a character of incredible depth and power with a cool daydreamy exterior. Her facial scar and intense love of the supernatural reveal an interesting yet dark backstory that is thankfully never realized. Linus Roache as Jeremiah Sands steals the show. His intense yet fragile portrayal of a failed indie rocker turned cult leader is mesmerizing. Lines like “If you are not with me, you will not ascend” barely scratches the surface of the nonsense he is hurling around. Supporting cast are all well suited for their roles and give outstanding performances (even if they’re hidden behind a spiky black leather hood). Chief among them is the veteran actor Bill Duke (Predator, Commando) as the backwoods arms dealer, Caruthers. After getting a visit from a broken and bloody Red he asks, “So what you hunting?” Red replies calmly, “Jesus Freaks”. 

Nevertheless, Cosmatos peppers in enough humor to keep the dense proceedings from caving in on itself. One of my favorite lighthearted moments involves a fake TV commercial Red watches after the cult leaves the house advertising a fictional macaroni and cheese brand called Cheddar Goblin. It’s an insane ad that just plays through while a gonzo-eyed Red looks on. Brilliant. A few other bits add some humor to the feature that seem a bit too self-aware but work marvelously given the violent absurdity we’re seeing play out. 

Panos’ insane phantasmic ride captures the essence of 70s/80s counterculture while dealing with trusted themes of love, loss, and revenge in an era no different than our own. Key here is the reference-heavy visual aesthetic combined with an unflinching assault on the senses. All this makes for a memorable experience that will leave you feeling like you’ve been to another world.

Mandy is a vicious snowflake on Blu-ray with a clean and sharp HD image presented in an aspect ratio of 2.40:1 encoded in AVC/MPEG-4. Shot digitally the film makes every effort to appear like your favorite ragged paperback fantasy novel with various filters and color grading effects to achieve a perfect early 80’s aesthetic.  

Colors are bright and vivid to say the least. Primaries are bold and dynamic in conjunction with the gritty visual aesthetic. Skin tones are solid and warm when available. A dark pitched film with heavy blues and fluorescent beams make the whole production look like a metal album cover from the 80s. Some noise in the black levels for the outdoor scenes but hold solid for medium indoor and closeups. Outside of the hallucinogenic episodes fine detail is present but still hiding under a layer of fat film grain. Costuming is clear and facial features sing with clarity. 

[review_audio_picture_id] => 86113 [review_audio] =>

Mandy arrives on Blu-ray with a confident DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio mix. Full-bodied and lush, the mix utilizes the breadth of the sound field, giving the foreboding electro madness a thick resonance that envelopes the room. Though dialogue exchanges are handled from a strong center channel, Mandy stretches the bounds of disorienting directionality with pleasing results. Frequently dialogue is spoken in a demonic sounding filter that makes it difficult to understand. Otherwise, characters speak in clear dialogue tracks that are free of hiss or other elements. Like the visuals, the audio presentation is an assault on the senses that relies on the viewer to just experience whatever is coming at you. 

Much credit to the success of Mandy lies within the doom metal inspired soundtrack from the late composer Johann Johannsson. Collaborating with drone metal guitarist Stephen O’Malley the scoring here is an intense mix of twisted themes and instrumentation. Screeching guitar riffs, 80s synth tones, and eerie atmospherics that when combined cast a foreboding energy that gives the film its identity. I rarely say this, but if the violent themes in the film aren't too intense for you, please check out the soundtrack album you won’t regret it.

Mandy is a violent and arresting horror film that tells a simple revenge story in the most unique way possible. Coated in layers of style and genre references Cosmatos’ sophomore outing is an experience you won’t soon forget. There are few films that deserve the praise of being called an “Instant Cult Classic” and I think this is one of them. Mandy gets a solid Blu-ray from RLJE Films with an impressive A/V presentation and enough bonus features to hold you over until (the inevitable?) special edition. Grab some weird friends and experience Mandy. Highly Recommended.

Trump has won and the Alt-Right is on the rise. His improbable victory brought a previously hidden movement out of the fringe. On the other side, the shadow collective Antifa and civil rights organizations like the SPLC and NAACP are fighting back in the courts, the media, and the streets.

Christmas always seems to bring bad luck to the American Building. After a century of tragic accidents and unexplainable deaths, the infamous skyscraper is reportedly haunted. Georgette Dubois (Falon Joslyn) is a professional skeptic hired by Management (Bill Moseley) to debunk those urban legends. Shes a scientist, meticulously searching for something to believe in. Her every encounter with the supernatural appears to have a rational explanation. None of that experience as a paranormal investigator prepared her to be trapped high above the city with genuinely ghoulish horrors. Instead, Georgette must reconnect with her spiritual roots if she hopes to survive.

When the two shots rang out, Bruce Wayne's life changed forever. He pledged himself to justice, and he held that oath for years. Wearing many names - the Dark Knight, The World's Greatest Detective, the Caped Crusader and Gotham's Greatest Hero - he battled tragic foes like The Joker, Penguin, Mr. Freeze and so many more. But deep inside, he knew that he shared something with them that most of humanity wouldn't understand - a commitment to the fight. The acclaimed, Emmy-winning TV series redefined this complex man as an edgy hero struggling for revenge and redemption each time he donned the cape and cowl, and this comprehensive collection contains every episode, with all the allies, criminals and showdowns in Batman's history.

Everyone's favorite Dark Knight rises from DVD to Blu-ray with Batman: The Complete Animated Series. This monster 12-disc set contains all original episodes of the series along with the two companion films, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero. The restoration work of the original episodes is magnificent. The new audio mix gives plenty of sonic action to each episode. And the bonus features package is an impressive undertaking, offering fans hours of content. Packed with three Funko Mini-Pops of Batman, Joker, and Harley Quinn and a set of lenticular stills, this really is The Complete Package. Highly Recommended

[review_movie] =>

I wasn't born a Batman fan, I was made one on the day my parents took me to the theater to see Tim Burton's Batman just ahead of my 7th birthday. From the opening movements of that movie's iconic score and that first rooftop fight with the two thieves, I became an instant Batman fan. I immediately stopped reading Spider-Man comics and went full on die-hard Batman comic collecting. Didn't matter if the issue was old or new, I bought it. Once Batman Returns left theaters and Warner Bros. announced Batman: The Animated Series, I was glued to my television set after school eagerly awaiting the two-episode premiere. 

Batman The Complete Animated Series

The first time Danny Elfman's rejiggered theme started playing against the neo-noir deco animation styling, I knew this show would be something special. And man, that first time Man-Bat appeared on my TV screen was probably the first time I let out what I now affectionally call "nerd squeals." The sound of pure joy and excitement that simply can't be contained as you witness a character come to life in a way that you'd only previously experienced in single comic book frames. And that's how things would go for me. Each week a new episode premiered and I would be there with my after-school snack waiting to devour another adventure producer Brice Timm cooked up with his principal voice cast of Kevin Conroy as Batman, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as Alfred, Robert Hastings as Commissioner Gordon, Loren Lester as Robin, Robert Costanzo, as Harvey Bullock. That says nothing of the incredible guest cast with Mark Hamill's Joker, Adrienne Barbeau as Catwoman, Richard Moll as Two-Face and not to mention Arleen Sorkin's now iconic Harley Quinn. There's a good reason why they keep coming back to this voice cast for animated films and video games - they're perfect!  

Batman The Complete Animated Series

As the quality of the live action movies quickly dwindled, The Animated Series became all the more important and treasured. I frustratingly staggered out of Batman Forever and later Batman and Robin wondering if no one developing those movies even bothered to watch The Animated Series, let alone read any of the comic books in order to screw up so many iconic characters so badly. When Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero came out, they were like a balm for the terrible cinematic burn of those last two live-action films before the franchise underwent its reboot Batman Begins

Batman The Complete Animated Series

To this day, I am amazed at how well Timm and company were able to pluck iconic characters and many obscure characters out of the comics, give them their own unique spin while staying true to their roots. Clayface, Poison Ivy, Scarface, the Penguin, Killer Croc, Bane, let alone adding to the heated fan debate and confusion about pronouncing Ra's al Ghul's name correctly while maintaining his backstory! 

My absolute favorite episode is "Beware the Gray Ghost," featuring a guest voice appearance by Adam West as an aged iconic superhero actor. There were many, many great episodes throughout the series, but this one still gets me a little emotional every time. And it was awesome watching it all over again in HD. Now that Mr. West is no longer with us, it became even more poignant and impressive how respectful this series was to the long history of Batman.

It'd been a couple years since I last took a look through The Animated Series. As Warner Archive began releasing Mask of the Phantasm and SubZero on Blu-ray I was very tempted to buy those and then cut my losses and pick up the series on DVD. I honestly never thought it would come to Blu-ray, and considered myself already very lucky that Batman '66 made it to Blu-ray at all. Now it's here and I couldn't be happier. With over 40 hours of content, I've got several days of gleeful nostalgia-infused binge watching ahead of me. 

[NOTE: Episodes are in production order, not broadcast premier order. ]

Vital Disc Stats: The Blu-ray

Batman: The Complete Animated Series finally makes its long-awaited Blu-ray debut courtesy of Warner Brothers in a striking 12-disc Blu-ray set comprised of the television show along with the Warner Archive discs for Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero. The outer case is a rather flimsy, easily dented and damaged paper box that holds the set together with the three exclusive mini Funko Pop figures of Batman, Joker, and Harley Quinn, the seven 3D lenticular stills, and the Blu-rays. Thankfully you don't really need to hold onto the paper outer box if you're intending to keep everything out on display, the Blu-rays have their own attractive black and red box that sits nicely on the shelf without taking up too much space. 

The 12 discs are housed in an attractive black hardcover book with a sturdy black cardboard slipcover with red foil inlay with the Batman symbol on the back and the Batman silhouette and show logo on the front. The discs are safe and secure in the book and slide out easily without risk of damage to the discs or packaging.

The discs load directly to static-image main menus featuring Warner's traditional navigation system. A digital slip is also included for the entire Animated series - not the films. Currently this only redeems in SD on VUDU, so hopefully, that'll get upgraded to HD soon with these new masters.

Batman The Complete Animated Series

Presented in proper 1.33:1 broadcast framing in 1080p, I'll just say my jaw dropped the first time the amazing intro title sequence came up.  Batman: The Animated Series is simply beautiful. The colors are rich with vibrant primaries and bold blues, crimson reds, and bright yellows just leaping off the screen. Detail levels are incredibly crisp to the point you can actually spot fine lines in the characters that I hadn't seen before. You can even spot the occasional brushstroke in the cells. On top of that, I felt like I was experiencing a measure of true depth in the animation layering - especially in scenes where there aren't any fast cuts or camera pans. If that wasn't enough, this image is incredibly clean free of any dirt or speckling that would frequently appear in the previous DVD releases. Film grain is intact and maintains a subtle presence without becoming too noisy or intrusive. 

Batman The Complete Animated Series

Occasionally, grain thickens and gives a bit of a flicker effect, but those moments are so brief you could blink and miss them entirely. Ultimately, the image maintains a true film-like appearance. Given Warner Archive's transfer for Mask of the Phantasm, my expectations were pretty high for this release, but also realistic considering the number of episodes. After digging through a few episodes on each disk, I'm excited to report that the show is practically flawless and proves to be another remarkable restoration from the team at Warner Bros. There is some slight speckling, but that only appears to be grit or debris trapped under individual cells. As I dig further through each disc and not just the cherry-picked favorite episodes from each season for this review, I'll report any anomalies I encounter but as of now, I'm wide-eyed amazed by this release.

[review_audio] =>

Batman The Complete Animated Series

Batman: The Animated Series pulls out one hell of a DTS-HD MA 2.0 audio mix from its utility belt for each episode. When that theme song kicks in at the beginning of each episode I just want to slam my thumb on the volume button. Don't get me wrong, levels are just fine, there's no softness or hard-to-hear spots. I just wanted it really loud for that Elfman theme music! Dialogue is crystal clear throughout. Sound effects are particularly lively and robust, allowing for a fully balanced presentation with some great low tones for extra atmosphere. When the Batmobile fires up its turbine engine, that roar has got some really impressive punch to it! Explosions, gunfire, and whenever Batman fires off his grappling hook or throws out his Batarang give the mix some terrific imaging and channel movement. Each episode is clean and clear without any anomalies to report.

Batman The Complete Animated Series Blu-ray

Like Man-Bat, the bonus features selection for Batman: The Complete Animated Series is an absolute beast. A number of these features have been ported over from the DVD releases. The commentaries are great listening. Since I didn't own the series beforehand, these were a lot of fun to pick through while I pulled this review together. The behind-the-scenes and cast retrospective material is fantastic and the character design segments are a real treat, especially Harley Quinn who was created for the show and then became official comic canon. There is so much new and archival material here, it's great to see that WB went full out and truly gave fans the total package deal.

Batman The Complete Animated Series

Batman: The Complete Animated Series is a home-run Blu-ray release. The show continues to be one of the truest adaptations of the comic books, while also being approachable to newcomers. You don't need to be steeped in the lore to watch it, although it does add to the enjoyment if you know the references. Warner Bros. has really outdone themselves with this release, going full out with a masterful restoration effort. The video transfers for each episode are exceptional and the show sounds better than ever. Not to mention the hours upon hours of bonus features you've got to dig through. With roughly 40 hours worth of episodes and movies, this set is a beast. It's a must own for the die-hard Bat-fans out there and even if you're a casual fan and don't know the episodes like the back of your hand, this is still a Highly Recommended set offering a massive improvement over the previous DVDs.

Jill has just returned home from college to the rural farm community where she grew up, only to discover that her parents have mysteriously vanished. Learning that her father, a banker, has become the local pariah for overseeing land foreclosures on local farmers, Jill quickly becomes the victim of a series of strange and increasingly depraved assaults. With only her childhood friend and former lover, Gary, and his mentally unstable brother, Mervo (Tiny Tim), willing to believe her, Jill begins to fear for her life. All the while, a stocking-masked killer is abducting, torturing, and brutally killing those closest to Jill…

An unrelentingly grim and perverse psycho-sexual thriller, BLOOD HARVEST mixes gruesome throat slashings, copious amounts of T&A, and an unhinged supporting performance from music sensation, Tiny Tim. Long available only in heavily cut and grey market editions, Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents BLOOD HARVEST on Blu-ray, fully uncut, uncensored, and newly restored in 4k from its recently discovered original camera negative.

Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him. Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls them racists, white supremacists and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right "by any means necessary." Through stunning historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, Death of a Nation cuts through progressive big lies to expose hidden history and explosive truths. Lincoln united his party and saved America from the Democrats for the first time. Can Trump—and we—come together and save America for the second time? Death of a Nation: Can We Save America A Second Time, is the latest film from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza, and Academy Award Winning producer, Gerald R. Molen.

Joel (James Bond III) grew up in the church but has started questioning his beliefs. After sensing a supernatural presence from his deceased father, Joel becomes compelled to visit his cousin, K (Kadeem Hardison) in New York. But shortly after arriving, he and K become embroiled in a series of mysterious homicides of local men, all of whom were last seen in the company of a mysterious and beautiful woman, who has now set her bloodthirsty sights on K...

The sole directorial effort from child actor James Bond III, who also wrote, produced, and starred, DEF BY TEMPTATION is a macabre, neon tinged portrait of late 80s Brooklyn, blending supernatural horror and religious mysticism, punctuated by an electrifying hip hop and R&B soundtrack. Featuring an early performance from Samuel L. Jackson alongside character actor Bill Nunn (DO THE RIGHT THING) and exquisite visuals from one of the late 20th century's most gifted cinematographers, Ernest Dickerson (JUICE), Vinegar Syndrome brings DEF BY TEMPTATION to Blu-ray, newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative.

This is the city ... and only Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks can save it in this hilarious box-office blockbuster that pays homage to the famed original police dramas of the '50s and '60s.

Aykroyd is at his comedic best as the namesake nephew of Detective Sgt. Joe Friday. Like his uncle, he's a blue-suited, by-the-rules cop who reluctantly joins forces with his footloose partner Pep Streebek (Hanks) to rescue the City of Angels from the machinations of a power-mad Reverend and corrupt Police Commissioners. And those are "just the facts" of this hysterically funny action-comedy!

Former soldier Shingo Hojo, French spy Remy Shimada, and Bronx gangster Killy Gagley aren’t exactly your “hero of justice” types.

Now pursued around the world in their teleporting carrier Good Thunder, GoShogun’s piloting team must keep Docooga at bay while foiling their eccentric enforcers, righting wrongs they come across, and occasionally facing ghosts from their own tragic pasts. It’s an unexpected combination of drama, satire, and giant robot action like nothing you’ve ever seen before! This complete collection contains all 26 episodes in Japanese with English subtitles.

An irreverent burst of anarchic energy that wowed attendees of the 1963 New York Film Festival, Hallelujah the Hills is a landmark film of the New American Cinema, presented here in a new 2K restoration. Directed with improvisatorial flair by Adolfas Mekas, a co-founder of Film Culture magazine with his brother Jonas (Walden), Hallelujah the Hills follows two wildly impulsive young men who are in love with the same woman (played by two different actresses). A slapstick love letter to cinema, this fiercely independent wonder laid the groundwork for all the free-spirited filmmakers to follow.

Special Features: Booklet essay by film historian John Pruitt | Hallelujah the Villa (2006), an interview with Adolfas Mekas (27 minutes) | The First New York Film Festival (1963), a roundtable discussion with Adolfas Mekas, Joseph Losey, Richard Roud, and Amos Vogel

Hitorijime My Hero contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Yukina Hiiro. Masahiro Setagawa has been having problems. His dad's gone, his mom's apathetic, and the local delinquents have turned him into a lackey and errand boy. Rescue comes in the most unexpected form, however, when a street fighter known as "Bear Killer" puts the beat down on the bad boys and takes Masa under his protective wing.The surprising part is that Masa already knew his rescuer, because not only is Kousuke Oshiba the older brother of Masa's best friend Kensuke, he's also Masa's homeroom teacher!

Cohen Film Collection is proud to present the 70th anniversary release of this rediscovered masterpiece by one of French cinema's giants, Jean Cocteau, in a new 2K restoration. In this heartbreaking drama based on Cocteau's highly successful stage play, a mother (Josette Day) smothers her grown son with boyish love. When the son (played by Cocteau regular Jean Marais) meets a girl and leaves the family circle, the mother flies into a rage. But when the boy tells his father, it sets off another drama - she is none other than the girl the father has been secretly seeing. Tragedy strikes in this time-honored tale of fledglings leaving the family nest.

[review_introduction] =>

Nicolas Cage stars in the fantasy horror film Mandy as a shattered man seeking bloody vengeance. Filtered through a euphoric lens of surreal visualizations and gruesome violence, the film is a slow burn journey into hell that only rewards those patient enough experience this waking nightmare. RLJE Films' Blu-ray provides an impressive HD presentation given the director’s visual aesthetic and a limited set of bonus features sure to please fans of this insane masterpiece. Highly Recommended

“You exude a cosmic darkness.”

Growing up in a time when movies followed a simple progression from trailer to cinema to VHS, there was always a sense of heightened anticipation. The payoff being your chance to catch the movie in a theater or perhaps stumbling onto it channel surfing one night. With the advent of streaming services and VOD, there are new and exciting ways to get movies into your eyeballs. Mandy should be a low budget straight-to-video horror film that few would champion outside of established genre geeks even with a mega-star like Nicolas Cage. Where Panos Cosmatos’ film succeeds is in making a trippy low-budget horror film into an experience rather than fodder for an abandoned streaming queue.

Mandy is the new midnight movie to see with your weird friends. 

In 1983, logger and stoic Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) lives with his girlfriend Mandy (Andrea Riseborough) in a secluded cabin. The soulmates carry on with their day jobs but retire to their rustic dwelling to watch old horror movies and revel in the stream of sci-fi/fantasy art that Many produces. Their bond is unbreakable and belies the simple lives of a grocery clerk and a logger. Out one day communing with nature, Mandy catches the eye of failed-rock-star-turned-hippie-cult-leader, Jeremiah Sands. The cult then summons a demonic biker gang, the Black Skulls, from the depths of hell to abduct Mandy. Drugged with hallucinogens, she is presented to Jeremiah. He monologues for a bit before playing a sample of his folk record. Instead of submitting to the cult leader, Mandy does the unthinkable: she laughs at him. Eventually Red seeks revenge for the cult’s devious actions in a bloody disconnect from reality where nothing stands in his way. Armed with a homemade battle ax, Red leaves a brutal path of destruction in his wake that is the stuff of nightmares. 

Mandy is a wild, wild ride of a film that attempts to merge 80’s exploitation with trippy psychedelic visuals which becomes a mesmerizing love letter to an era of fantasy pulp novels, Satanic Panic, and custom van murals. Let’s just say it isn’t for everyone. Divided into chapters with unique headings, it's easier to divide the film in half: Before Cage Kills / After Cage Kills. Lasting impressions of the film will no doubt involve the latter, but Mandy is an arresting film from the beginning. Soaked in layer upon layer of neon lights, fog (so much fog), and lens flares it's a unique film to witness. Even though it contains themes on religion, fragile male egos, and love Mandy demands that you live the experience of the film rather than actively analyze every frame.   

Let’s talk about Nicolas Cage. There’s been a great deal of praise on Cage’s performance here being an unleashed berserker that fulfills the axiom of “Cage Rage”. While he is well cast for the calm and understated Red Miller, his performance is memorable in the violent parts of this film not because of what he does, but that he is willing to commit to those scenes. Put any other actor in some white briefs and a tiger t-shirt covered in blood and vodka and you won’t get the same commitment that Cage offers. His ability to surrender to these moments, no matter how insane, shows why he is one of the best working actors. Believe me, after a second or third viewing you’ll begin to see it. You could put anyone in those briefs, but would they really make the same kind of impact? 

Andrea Riseborough creates within Mandy a character of incredible depth and power with a cool daydreamy exterior. Her facial scar and intense love of the supernatural reveal an interesting yet dark backstory that is thankfully never realized. Linus Roache as Jeremiah Sands steals the show. His intense yet fragile portrayal of a failed indie rocker turned cult leader is mesmerizing. Lines like “If you are not with me, you will not ascend” barely scratches the surface of the nonsense he is hurling around. Supporting cast are all well suited for their roles and give outstanding performances (even if they’re hidden behind a spiky black leather hood). Chief among them is the veteran actor Bill Duke (Predator, Commando) as the backwoods arms dealer, Caruthers. After getting a visit from a broken and bloody Red he asks, “So what you hunting?” Red replies calmly, “Jesus Freaks”. 

Nevertheless, Cosmatos peppers in enough humor to keep the dense proceedings from caving in on itself. One of my favorite lighthearted moments involves a fake TV commercial Red watches after the cult leaves the house advertising a fictional macaroni and cheese brand called Cheddar Goblin. It’s an insane ad that just plays through while a gonzo-eyed Red looks on. Brilliant. A few other bits add some humor to the feature that seem a bit too self-aware but work marvelously given the violent absurdity we’re seeing play out. 

Panos’ insane phantasmic ride captures the essence of 70s/80s counterculture while dealing with trusted themes of love, loss, and revenge in an era no different than our own. Key here is the reference-heavy visual aesthetic combined with an unflinching assault on the senses. All this makes for a memorable experience that will leave you feeling like you’ve been to another world.

Mandy is a vicious snowflake on Blu-ray with a clean and sharp HD image presented in an aspect ratio of 2.40:1 encoded in AVC/MPEG-4. Shot digitally the film makes every effort to appear like your favorite ragged paperback fantasy novel with various filters and color grading effects to achieve a perfect early 80’s aesthetic.  

Colors are bright and vivid to say the least. Primaries are bold and dynamic in conjunction with the gritty visual aesthetic. Skin tones are solid and warm when available. A dark pitched film with heavy blues and fluorescent beams make the whole production look like a metal album cover from the 80s. Some noise in the black levels for the outdoor scenes but hold solid for medium indoor and closeups. Outside of the hallucinogenic episodes fine detail is present but still hiding under a layer of fat film grain. Costuming is clear and facial features sing with clarity. 

[review_audio_picture_id] => 86113 [review_audio] =>

Mandy arrives on Blu-ray with a confident DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio mix. Full-bodied and lush, the mix utilizes the breadth of the sound field, giving the foreboding electro madness a thick resonance that envelopes the room. Though dialogue exchanges are handled from a strong center channel, Mandy stretches the bounds of disorienting directionality with pleasing results. Frequently dialogue is spoken in a demonic sounding filter that makes it difficult to understand. Otherwise, characters speak in clear dialogue tracks that are free of hiss or other elements. Like the visuals, the audio presentation is an assault on the senses that relies on the viewer to just experience whatever is coming at you. 

Much credit to the success of Mandy lies within the doom metal inspired soundtrack from the late composer Johann Johannsson. Collaborating with drone metal guitarist Stephen O’Malley the scoring here is an intense mix of twisted themes and instrumentation. Screeching guitar riffs, 80s synth tones, and eerie atmospherics that when combined cast a foreboding energy that gives the film its identity. I rarely say this, but if the violent themes in the film aren't too intense for you, please check out the soundtrack album you won’t regret it.

We don't get much in terms of bonus content, but it should hold you over until (the inevitable?) special edition arrives.

Mandy is a violent and arresting horror film that tells a simple revenge story in the most unique way possible. Coated in layers of style and genre references Cosmatos’ sophomore outing is an experience you won’t soon forget. There are few films that deserve the praise of being called an “Instant Cult Classic” and I think this is one of them. Mandy gets a solid Blu-ray from RLJE Films with an impressive A/V presentation and enough bonus features to hold you over until (the inevitable?) special edition. Grab some weird friends and experience Mandy. Highly Recommended.
