Blu-ray Review: ‘Smithereens’ Criterion Collection!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2018

Smithereens is a film from 1982 that focuses on the end of the punk rock scene in New York City. Directed by Susan Seidelman (She-Devil), the film focuses on a young woman who will do whatever it takes to be a part of the punk scene. I don’t mean a musician either, but rather a groupie or someone in the background. Unfortunately, in real life, there were a ton of these people who met their demise early on in life by way of crime, drugs or alcohol. This one is no different and while it might not be as brutal as Sid and Nancy, it’s just as tragic in a subtle way. It’s a fantastic film and Criterion Collection has brought the film to their amazing collection on Blu-ray. With a new transfer in HD, a mono soundtrack and excellent extras, this film Smithereens is Highly Recommended. Please listen to the review in podcast form below.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here we our with out 30th podcast. I can’ve believe we are at 30 weeks already. This is a milestone for our little podcast.  As usual, we always start out with some sort of list. For the 30th week, we decided to discuss the best Criterion Collection Titles of all time. Now what is a Criterion Collection Title, you ask? Criterion is like the Neiman Marcus of home video. They have the best extras, the best audio and video presentations, and choose films for their collection that are culturally important and significant. We had some pretty amazing picks, which at times we had to restrain ourselves from stopping the podcast and watching one of these films. It was a lot of fun.  And please let us know, what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information.

Criterion Collection Titles For December 2012!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

The good folks over at Criterion have just announced their titles for December, 2012.  There are some really cool titles for December.  One  title I have waited for years to own on criterion.  Another title is actually Christopher Nolan’s first film, ‘Following’, which is very exciting.  If this is any indication, we might get future Nolan films on Criterion sooner than later, which means a possible Dark Knight Criterion. After all, with Criterion, most director’s who get a film in at Criterion, tend to get more of their films in that pot.   So here’s hoping.  Sadly, no announcement of ‘Good Burger’ or any of the Ernest movies yet, but hopefully in the year 2013, we will get at least one of those.  I can’t wait until December now.  Thanks, Criterion.  Thanks.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Criterion knocked this release out of the park.  I;m not surprised.  Criterion is the Neiman Marcus of home video releases.  And, with their Hollis Frampton Odyssey bluray, they don’t disappoint.  I would imagine, only film buffs and film majors know who Hollis Frampton is.  If you don’t know who he is, if you love cinema, experimentation, and art, then you will instantly fall in love with Frampton’s films.  Frampton is the godfather of digital art, and this bluray shows you why he got that name.  Simply phenomenal.  This disc gets my highest recommendation.

Hi Bryan Here….

Luis Bunuel’s ‘Belle de Jour’ is a fantastic sensual odyssey that I enjoyed immensely.  Catherine Deneuve is just radiant and amazing in the lead role.  Criterion really rolled out the red carpet with this release.  The video and audio presentations are fantastic and the extras are very good.  If you are a fan of the beautiful Catherine Deneuve and or an intense tale of sexual fantasy and fetish, then this movie is for you.  I just love this movie and it will make a great addition to your criterion section.
