Film Review: ‘The Wolverine’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

the-wolverine06

This second installment in a supposed trilogy on Wolverine is certainly a step in the right direction. Despite ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘ being a terrible mess of a film on all levels, it managed to muster almost $400 million worldwide. With James Mangold at the helm this time and leaving off the ‘X-Men‘ title, we have a decent attempt of furthering one of the most beloved heroes in comic book history. Leaving the CG effects on the back-burner this time around, and going with a hand-to-hand combat method with elements of noir and Kurosawa in mind, this ninja-heavy action blockbuster for Fox should garner appropriate returns.

Hi, Bryan Here….

wolverine_ver2

This is the brand new trailer for ‘The Wolverine‘ starring Hugh Jackman. This trailer should be in front of most prints of ‘Fast and Furious 6‘ this weekend, so be sure to look out for that. The film will be in 3D and is directed by James Mangold (‘Copland‘, ‘3:10 To Yuma‘). This is also a prequel to the whole X-Men series and will focus a bit on Logan’s time in Japan, which is a fan favorite in the comics. In this trailer, we get a big look at that side of the story. The film opens July 26th and I hope it’s a bit better than the previous film.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The-Wolverine-2013-movie

Here is a Japanese trailer for the upcoming ‘Wolverine‘ film titled ‘The Wolverine‘. It showcases a tiny bit of new footage that we haven’t seen from previous trailers. This looks loads better than the previous ‘Wolverine‘ effort already. James Mangold is directing this sequel, which is not as appetizing as Darren Aronofsky directing, but that is long in the past. Mangold did ‘3:10 to Yuma‘, which was great, so let’s hope for something that spectacular, but Wolvy Berserk style. Snikt!

Hi, Bryan Here….

Finally, after several years of going in and out of production, the new Wolverine film is finally taking shape.  James Mangold is directing the project.  Mangold directed ‘Cop Land’, ‘Girl Interrupted’, ‘3:10 To Yuma’, ‘Identity’, and ‘Walk the Line’ to name a few.  Not sure how to take this film yet.  At one point, Darren Aronofsky was attached to direct, but that fell through.  I was not a fan of ‘Wolverine Origins’, but hopefully this film will be much better.

Darren Aronofsky Might Direct the Wolverine Sequel…

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 6th, 2010

Director Darren Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem For A Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler) did not get the job to direct the new Superman flick, but he is currently in talks to direct the next installment of the Wolverine franchise.


As of now, Aronofsky has a perfect record in filmmaking.  But so did Gavin Hood (Tsotsi) before he directed Wolverine.  I did not like the Wolverine movie.  It was completely sloppy and uninteresting.  A terrible film really.


Let’s hope that Aronofsky gets creative control with this film so it will not tarnish his reputation.  Plus it would reunite Aronofsky and Hugh Jackman working together.  Their previous collaboration was on the sci-fi love story, “The Fountain”.


Looking forward to seeing Wolverine in Japan.


SNIKT!

Jessica Biel To Play Viper In ‘Wolverine’ Sequel!!!

Jessica Biel has just landed the role of Viper in Fox’s ‘The Wolverine’ film.  Viper formally known as Madame Hdrya has been in the X-Men universe for a long time now and we hear that her role is pretty big.  Let’s not forget that Biel was in one other Marvel film.  Can you guess which one that was?  If you guessed ‘Blade: Trinity’, then you guessed correctly.

Wolverine Returns to Broadway with Aaron Sorkin!!!

Hi Bryan Here…..

That’s right.  Hugh Jackman will head back to the big stage on Broadway for a new show, but not as Wolverine.  But rather ‘Houdini’.  Houdini marks the debut of Aaron Sorkin on stage, with music by Stephen Schwartz. Jack O’Brien has been set to direct the production, which will be presented by producer Scott Sanders and David Rockwell, the latter of whom will design the sets.

Director Duncan Jones Might Helm Wolverine Sequel!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 12th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Seems like the rumor mill is in full force in that director Duncan Jones (Moon, The Source Code) is having meetings about directing the Wolverine sequel.  At one point it was going to be Darren Aronofsky, but he pulled out at the last minute, so now the crew is trying to find someone quickly.  It doesn’t seem like Duncan Jones would want to take the project on meaning it doesn’t look like his cup of tea.  I feel he would want to make his own super hero film by creating a new one and not be tied down by Marvel or the big studio execs on ever single frame.   Who knows?  But our fellow contributor Joel, has a little something to say about this matter below.

Film Review #2: ‘Logan’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 3rd, 2017

Dan M., here….

thumbnail_25047

Even when the dust settles and recency bias fades, I can’t imagine LOGAN not being considered one of the greatest superhero films of all time. For me, LOGAN is in the same class as Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 1-2, Iron Man, Reeve’s Superman, Burton’s Batman, etc. I believe all of those comic films work as films and stories first, comic fun second. There are plenty of “fun” comic movies I thoroughly enjoy and love but I wouldn’t classify them as well-crafted films. LOGAN is a great story and character arc first and comic fun second. It just works on every level.

Film Review: ‘LOGAN’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-02-17 at 11.10.34 AM

For decades now, we have been clamoring for a ‘Wolverine‘ film done right. From his first incarnation in Hulk #181 to his own miniseries in comic book form in the 1980’s by Frank Miller, to the amazing Saturday Morning Cartoon, and his first appearance in a feature film in 2000 with ‘X-Men‘, which had the song and dance man Hugh Jackman play the iconic character. He was so good at playing Logan/Wolverine, that fans immediately took a liking to him as that character and he went on to play the ‘Snikt-y Snikt’ character in almost a dozen more films. Besides the ‘X-Men‘ films, Wolverine got his own set of standalone films, which may or may not have been liked by a lot of people for various reasons. Either the story was too silly or the character Wolverine was to PG for fans.

If you’re like me you’ve been on pins and needles awaiting casting information from one of the latest films covering the canon of the Marvel universe, ‘Deadpool‘. Wise-cracking Wade Wilson aka Deadpool is a fan favorite for his ass-kicking capability and his witty master of the English language. Marvel originally introduced Wilson in ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘ in 2009 played perfectly by Ryan Reynolds. In a somewhat strange turn of events, Reynolds confirmed that the current ‘Deadpool’ will have no connection to the character he originated in the Wolverine movie, but will be playing him again, in the new incarnation. This time around Wade Wilson, an assassin who undergoes a procedure to cure his cancer that ends up leaving him twisted and scarred but carrying superpowers. ‘Deadpool‘ is slated to begin filming in March and slated for 2016 release.

I am a Marvel girl. I am. But after the last ensemble X-Men movie (Last Stand), I was devastated at what had become of my beloved mutant team. Then, First Class came out, which gave me a lot of hope. Then they announced Bryan Singer would return to direct the next installment. Dare I get my hopes up more? Then they shared the “Days of Future Past” storyline. I was instantly hooked. The cast started rolling in, and I got even more hopeful and well, I was really happy after the first preview. It looked good, even great.

Hello, Jana here,

_batman_vs__superman___world_s_finest__poster_by_nieoein-d6jkswg

It looks like Warner Bros. is banking pretty heavily on Zack Snyder’sBatman vs. Superman‘ release, with a so-so reception of last year’s ‘Man of Steel‘, they gave him a sequel. Not only is he doing a sequel, he cast Ben Affleck as Batman which has drawn cheers and jeers, mostly jeers, from the public since then. So it seems a little ridiculous to me that Warner Bros. has already announced a ‘Justice League‘ movie helmed by Snyder. I’m not saying a ‘Justice League‘ film isn’t a good idea, I just don’t think building the DC Universe off of the ‘Man of Steel‘ platform is the way to do it.

Film Review: ‘Red Dawn’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 19th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I admit, I was a bit apprehensive heading into watching this remake of the 1984 action film that starred Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Harry Dean Stanton, and Jennifer Grey.  The 80’s film was a big hit and is still good today. John Milius ,the director of the original film, made an imprint on the minds of the youth back then with a ‘what if’ scenario and a heck of a fun film.  This remake, while it is certainly very cheesy and awkwardly bad in tiny moments, the overall picture is a fine and worth-while remake despite its many faults.

‘City State’ to Be Remade in English!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

I’m resigned. Originality in Hollywood will never return. But, if it has to give up on novelty, at least it’s giving us good stuff.

City State is an Icelandic crime drama centered around four people caught up in the underworld. When a foreign mafia takes over the drug market, their lives intersect. There’s a bad cop in love with a whore, a revenge-seeking female cop, an aging crime boss with a heart condition, and a mechanic-turned-avenging-angel. Even a remake could be completely engrossing. It sort of sounds like Sin City meets Crash.

Wonder Woman 4K UHD and Blu-ray Announced!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Perhaps the biggest movie of the summer and the one film to get DC and Warner Bros. back on track with their superhero films – WONDER WOMAN, is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and DVD. Warner is sure milking this for all its worth, since they are also releasing a 3D version of the film, even though 3D is dead in the water. The 4K UHD is the way to go for sure here if you have the right equipment. You can own the movie digitally as soon as August 29th, and you’ll be able to purchase the Blu-ray, 4K, 3D, and DVD on September 19th. There are tons of bonus features as well, which I can’t wait to watch. Official information below.

Chris Benoit is a taboo subject in the WWE and has been for an umber of years. Yes, the WWE as in World Wrestling Entertainment, where Chris Benoit was one of the best wrestlers and superstars the company has ever seen. He held the champion titles a number of times and was one of the best in the business in his career. His nickname was the Rabid Wolverine and was called Toothless Aggression, since he was missing a tooth.

Film Review: ‘X-MEN: APOCALYPSE’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

cdn.indiewire.psdops

And we are back with yet another ‘X-MEN‘ movie, marking this the 9th film in the franchise, that is if you count the ‘Wolverine’ movies and what not. If you’re just counting purely ‘X-MEN‘ films, than this is number six with it being number 4 from director Bryan Singer, who started this whole comic book movie crazy back sixteen years ago with the first ‘X-Men‘ film. From there, we have seen the Marvel and DC Universe take off into a multi-billion dollar industry. It’s quite mind boggling, and this new film ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ seems to take everything we’ve seen since Matthew Vaughn’s ‘First Class’ and sculpt it into this one film.

Film Review: ‘Eddie The Eagle’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen Shot 2016-02-25 at 9.18.06 PM

Underdog stories are almost always fun. From ‘Miracle‘ to ‘Rocky‘ to even ‘Little Giants‘, these stories of regular people, who you normally wouldn’t pick for a sports team, prove that they have enough heart, guts, blood, and spirit to give it a real shot and make it to the top. Some of these films and television shows we’ve seen that have portrayed the ‘underdog’ scenario have been based on real people and real events, such as this one, ‘Eddie the Eagle‘. If you grew up during the 1980s, you might remember hearing about ‘Eddie the Eagle‘, who was a British Olympic ski jumper at the Calgary 1988 Olympics.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Brace yourselves, every habit-ish line, saying or phrase you can think of is about to be thrust upon you now that Disney has upped the ante on the remake game, announcing that ‘Sister Act‘ is on the block as the next title to be revamped. They’re Catholic, they’re nuns and nuns wear habits, got it.

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 4th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

Ryan_Reynolds

It’s happening! It’s happening! It’s finally frakking happening!!! That collective fist punch performed round the world is for the newest Marvel film announcement.

Top 10 List: The 10 Most American Movies!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 4th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Captain+America+The+First+Avenger+crop

It’s that time of year again. Time to celebrate the founding of this nation by eating excessively and purchasing enough fireworks to create man-sized craters in the pavement. In honor of this time, here’s a list of the most ‘Murican movies ever. This isn’t a list of patriotic movies (though some of these could be seen as patriotic), so you aren’t going to see Saving Private Ryan or other true patriotic movies on here. This list focuses on those things that make America into ‘Murica – extreme excess and over-the-top…well, everything! [Cue eagle screech]

Film Review: ‘The Grand Seduction’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 11th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

la_ca_0418_the_grand_seduction

The Grand Seduction with Taylor Kitsch sounds yummy, but this film is not that type of party.  In the quaint town of Tickle Head, Newfoundland, the word of the day is “welfare”.  The small harbor is struggling to stay afloat while generation after generation of fisherman had lived and worked in the small town.  Sadly, since the fishing has dried up, the whole town is apparently on welfare.  Their spirit is parched for any sense of self-worth.  Mostly the older generation refused to leave, so when a petrochemical company is looking for a location for their new waste processing plant, the town bands together to get the contract.

Hello, Jana here,

 

game-of-thrones

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, framers and writers of the award winning series ‘Game of Thrones‘ have set their sites on a new project. Since converting George R.R. Martin’s novel into one of the most popular and award winning series, they have had little time for anything else. The demands of writing and executive producing GoT have left little time for other projects. With the fourth season premiering last Sunday, the pair have set their sites on another novel they are planning to convert to another media. This time, they are looking at a feature film, and the book they will be working from is ‘Dirty White Boys‘ from Stephen Hunter. Hunter also wrote ‘Point of Impact‘, the book that was turned into 2007’s ‘Shooter‘.

Hello, Jana here,

beauty-of-helen-mirren-2

Ryan Reynolds is the latest to join Helen Mirren in The Weinstein Company’s ‘Woman In Gold‘ or ‘The Golden Lady‘, not sure which title they are going to go with. Daniel Bruhl is in negotiations, at this point. Mirren will play real-life heroine Maria Altmann,  a Jewish WWII survivor who fought the Austrian government to get back several paintings by Gustav Klimt that were stolen from her family during wartime. Reynolds will play the attorney who took this case despite knowing little about art and Bruhl, will play his adversary.  Looks like George Clooney’sThe Monument’s Men‘ missed a few paintings.

Before, I get into the future project of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, a.k.a. Kick Ass, let me just take a moment to express how absolutely gorgeous this guy looks without the frizzy hair of his first appearance as the normal dude turned vigilante. I kind of slid my eyes past him because I could not see the hottie he had hidden. I just checked out a picture of him and was freaking gobsmacked at the boy looking back at me that will be filling my night time thoughts. Yummy. Now that I’ve stated the obvious but important point of his looks I can get on with his new project.

Hi, Bryan Here…

poster-trio

Well, it’s finally here. After a couple of years of teasing the story line and casting, and the badass end credit sequence from the last ‘Wolverine‘ film, we now have a trailer for Bryan Singer’sX-Men: Days of Future Past‘.  Thanks to 20th Century Fox for releasing it just a few minutes ago. Singer directed the first two X-Men films and is back this time around, and has casts from both his films and the last one ‘X-Men: First Class‘. There will be epic superhero fights and even time travel.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Darren-Aronofsky

Director Darren Aronofsky has been hard at work on his epic tale of ‘Noah’s Ark‘, after he left the ‘Wolverine‘ project. We’ve heard that he’s looking to develop a project on George Washington at some point, but now we hear that 20th Century Fox is reaching out to the director to develop another film. Aronofsky is currently in talks to make ‘Red Sparrow‘, an espionage thriller based on a book by Jason Matthews of the same name, which was published back in June.

Finally, the trailer for Orson Scott Card’s 1985 sci-fi opus is here. ‘Ender’s Game‘ looks pretty damn good and now I’m all hyped up for this film.

Bryan Reviews Oliver Stone’s ‘Savages’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

After a few years of getting a softer side of Oliver Stone, Savages brings the director back to his ultra violent, drug induced, sex crazed, and savage side.  Based on Don Winslow’s novel, Savages tells an intense tale of drugs, sex, and betrayal.  I really missed this side of Oliver Stone.  I’ve been hoping for a film that can be put in the same cookie jar as Natural Born Killers, Platoon, and U Turn.  Instead, we have received films like Wall Street 2: Electric Boogaloo, W., and World Trade Center.  By far not his best work nor interesting.  So the big question is, “Did Oliver Stone deliver the goods on his return to a more sadistic film?”

Hi Bryan Here…..

I was totally smitten with ‘Real Steel’.  I went into the film thinking that it wasn’t going to do much for me, but I was blown away on how great this movie was.  I really enjoyed it.  The FX are top notch and it looks incredible on bluray.  The extras are pretty decent as well.  The movie warms the heart, has some very thrilling and tense fight scenes, and a bit of comedy.  This could be fun for the whole family, and it will.  I definitely recommend ‘Real Steel’.

Hi Bryan Here….

‘Snowflower and the Secret Fan’ is a film by Wayne Wang who is probably most known for his film ‘The Joy Luck Club’.  Over the years Wang has directed movies such as ‘Smoke’, ‘Because of Winn-Dixie’, and ‘Maid in Manhattan’.  These are a far cry from ‘Joy Luck Club’, ‘A Thousand Years of Good Prayers’ and his most recent ‘Snowflower and the Secret Fan’.  I must say I am happy to see Wang return to the Chinese American storylines in his films.  He does this effortlessly.  ‘Snowflower and the Secret Fan’ is based on the novel by Lisa See.

Darren Aronofsky to Direct ‘Noah’s Ark’?!?!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

So this is the film Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) dropped Wolverine for.  So over the last month or so, Fox and Paramount have been bidding to acquire a big fantasy adaptation of ‘Noah’s Ark’.  And Darren Aronofsky will be the director of it.  This is expected to be a $100 million dollar budget film.  Aronoksy originally wrote the script for this Ark project, but is being re-tooled by ‘Gladiator’ writer John Logan.  I’m sure in the coming days, we will see who gets the film, but I’m sure Paramount will be victorious.  At least we know it will be better than the Steve Carrell vehicle about ‘Noah’s Ark’.  I’m actually looing forward to seeing this big budget fantasy tale come to life through the eyes that brought us ‘Requiem for a Dream’.

When we all heard that Hugh Jackman was going to star in a film about boxing robots, we all thought “Ummm Okay, I guess it could be cool but weird.”  This trailer kicks so much ass!!!  This movie is going to make tons and tons of money in the box office and merchandising.  This is like every kids and adult males wet dream.  Wolverine teaching huge ninja robots how to fight.  Mix Rocky with robots and a father/ son story and you will make billions of dollars.  It’s like a hard-on wrapped in gold.

Bluray/DVD Picks For The 3rd Week Of February!!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Some pretty great classic titles this week, but a fairly weak new release week.  But  I love the heavy classic title weeks.  It gives me a chance to watch some excellent filmmaking and remember all the films I saw when I was younger.  And the best is, that most of them have the HI-DEF treatment, so it is like watching the movie for the first time.  Some great titles.  Classic Titles.

As usual, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.

Enjoy and Here We Go!!

Marvel Comics Will Get the Tron Treatment…

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 20th, 2010

Since Disney bought Marvel all those months ago, it is only right that Marvel will get to use the Disney brand of Tron in their comics.


Just like last Halloween, a lot of Marvel titles had alternate variant covers featuring Zombies.  Such as the cover for an Amazing Spider-Man issue would have Spidey as a zombie on the front cover.  You can see what those look like and purchase them HERE.


Well in anticipation for the upcoming release of the Tron sequel, “Tron: Legacy” Marvel is using their new ownership to riddle their titles and covers with Tron-Esque artwork.  And they look BADASS.


Here is a list of what they will be:


• AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #651 TRON Variant, featuring Spider-Man

• AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant. featuring Spider-Woman

• AVENGERS ACADEMY #7 TRON Variant, featuring Quicksilver

• CAPTAIN AMERICA #612 TRON Variant, featuring Captain America

• INCREDIBLE HULKS #618 TRON Variant, featuring Ghost Rider

• INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #33 TRON Variant, featuring Iron Man

• NEW AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant, featuring Ms. Marvel

• SECRET AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant, featuring Moon Knight

• THOR #617 TRON Variant, featuring Thor

• WOLVERINE #4 TRON Variant, featuring Wolverine


These all will be released from November through December.  Be sure to check the Boomstick Comics Store by clicking HERE to purchase these variant covers.


Below are what the covers will look like.

Bluray/DVD Releases For the 2nd Week of October

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 12th, 2010

A few good releases this week.  Some titles I have been waiting quite a while for to be released.  Any week is good when you get a Wes Anderson Criterion movie.  So, as usual, the picture links will whisk you away over to amazon, where you can learn more about each title, and purchase the movie for a great discount, which also donates a small percent to this column to keep this website going.  Here we go….

The Darjeeling Limited (Criterion Collection Bluray)

I love this Wes Anderson film.  A story about three brothers who are on an emotional and physical journey to come to terms with their lives, and their father’s death, and the disappearance of their mother.  The whole entire film pretty much takes place in India which is BEAUTIFUL.  The soundtrack is littered with Kinks songs which makes it a pleasure to listen to.  Since being a Criterion Collection release, it is packed with extras which include:

New high-definition digital transfer approved by director Wes Anderson

Anderson’s short film Hotel Chevalier (part one of The Darjeeling Limited)

Audio commentary featuring Anderson and cowriters

Behind-the-scenes documentary by Barry Braverman

Anderson and filmmaker James Ivory discussing the film’s music

Anderson’s American Express commercial

On-set footage shot by Coppola and actor Waris Ahluwalia

Audition footage, deleted and alternate scenes, and stills galleries

Original theatrical trailer

PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Richard Brody

Dollhouse: Season 2 (Bluray)

As an “Active,” the mysterious Echo (Dushku) serves as an unwitting agent of Dollhouse, and illegal underground organization that provides its elite clientele with programmable human beings. Actives receive personality imprints, allowing them to temporarily become anyone or anything — the perfect burglar, lover, spy, or assassin. Now, with the FBI and her own shadowy past closing in, Echo must face a rogue Active who will stop at nothing to bring Dollhouse down — forever.

Extras include:


  • Audio commentary on “Vows”, by show creator Joss Whedon
  • Audio commentary on “Belonging”, by writers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen
  • Defining Moments
  • Looking Back
  • Outtakes
  • Deleted scenes

Exclusive HD Content

  • Audio commentary on “Getting Closer”, executive producer and episode writer Tim Minear

Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones (Bluray)

Film of The Rolling Stones’ 1972 United States tour.

Tracks:

1. Brown Sugar
2. Bitch
3. Gimme Shelter
4. Dead Flowers
5. Happy
6. Tumbling Dice
7. Love in Vain
8. Sweet Virginia
9. You Can’t Always Get What You Want
10. All Down the Line
11. Midnight Rambler
12. Bye Bye Johnny
13. Rip This Joint
14. Jumpin’ Jack Flash
15. Street Fighting Man

Extras include:


Supplements

  • Tour rehearsal footage from Montreux
  • 1972 Old Grey Whistle Test interview with Mick Jagger
  • 2010 interview with Mick Jagger

The Magician (Criterion Collection Bluray)

Ingmar Bergman’s The Magician (Ansiktet) is an engaging, brilliantly conceived tale of deceit from one of cinema’s premier illusionists. Max von Sydow stars as Dr. Vogler, a mid-nineteenth-century traveling mesmerist and peddler of potions whose magic is put to the test by a small town’s cruel, eminently rational minister of health, Dr. Vergerus. The result is a diabolically clever battle of wits that’s both frightening and funny, shot in rich, gorgeously gothic black and white.

Extras include:

Supplements

  • New visual essay by Bergman scholar Peter Cowie
  • Brief 1967 video interview with director Ingmar Bergman about the film
  • Rare English-language audio interview with Bergman, conducted by filmmakers Olivier Assayas and Stig Björkman
  • A booklet featuring an essay by critic Geoff Andrew, a reprinted essay by Assayas, and an excerpt from Bergman’s autobiography Images: My Life in Film

Wolverine and the X-Men: Complete Series (Bluray)

This show was badass.  Glad it is finally on bluray.  After a mysterious explosion at the Xavier mansion, and the resulting disappearances of Professor Xavier and Jean Grey, the distraught X-Men disband. But soon Wolverine, Storm, Beast and the others must join together again to not only battle the increasingly powerful Mutant Response Division, but also to prevent a catastrophic future that Xavier has warned Wolverine must never come to pass. With help from their allies, the heroic X-Men wage war against formidable foes as the present and future collide. But who will win? Discover for yourself as this extraordinary series is presented together in one complete collection like never before.

Supplements

  • Audio commentaries
  • Two unique featurettes

Leaves of Grass (Bluray)

I do not know much about this film, but I cannot believe this film did not get a major release.  It stars Edward Norton, Richard Dreyfuss, Tim Blake Nelson, Susan Sarandon, and Keri Russell.  An Ivy League professor is lured back to his Oklahoma hometown, where his twin brother, a small-time pot grower, has concocted a scheme to take down a local drug lord.  Sounds awesome.  I’ll be picking this up.

Well that’s it for this week.  Stay tuned for next week for new releases.
