RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Fear and Loathing on Criterion Blu-Ray

Summary

It's finally happened: this week on home video, we don't have any notable DVDs of recent films that saw a theatrical release. Sure, there are plenty of standard reissues of movies, like The Crow, Cinema Paradiso, Shakespeare in Love, Amelie, and the Scream movies, but there's nothing particularly special about them. So this week, we've chosen just a handful of the more interesting ones, including Criterion Blu-Ray releases of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Blow Out, as well as a couple of Jodorowsky cult favorites, a couple of recent anime films, an old Bob Dylan documentary on Blu-Ray, and a new BBC nature series. So have a look, and if nothing suits your fancy, you'll just have to wait until next week. Back to Article

Videodrome is actually very brilliant, if you want, I can give you an essay that I found online discussing and dissecting the movie and the message is so pointedly conveys. The fact that Woods's VCR slot in his stomach was vertical, thereby resembling a pussy, wasn't accidental - there are parallels between getting primal, lustful entertainment and the act of intercourse. They both gratify you and both feed off your desires.

You guys forgot about the hindi film 3 Idiots-- it's getting an official US release this week, that Fox has unfortunately done a terrible job of advertising. I highly recommend it, though!

This! 3 Idiots is in my top ten films for 2009. Highly recommended for those who haven't seen it yet. It's almost three hours long but you'd wish it's even longer. All is well!

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Let's cut down to brass tacks. How much for the ape?

With a bit of luck, his life was ruined forever. Always thinking that just behind some narrow door in all of his favorite bars, men in red woolen shirts are getting incredible kicks from things he'll never know.

The first time I saw Fear and Loathing I though it was dumb, then I got interested in Dr.Gonzo and read the book. Now I realize how incredibly faithful it is to the book

I just HAVE to get the reissue of Cinema Paradiso. My edition is crap! Also, need to get El Topo, since I already have The Holy Mountain. Nice DVD release week...

Blow Out is a great movie. Incredibly underrated. One of DePalma's best and a great Travolta performance.
