pulp-1972-dvd-blu-ray

Product Description: A year after they'd created one of the defining British gangster pictures with Get Carter, three Michaels – writer-director Mike Hodges, producer Michael Klinger and star Michael Caine – reunited for another crime picture, albeit with a more oddball flavour…

Caine plays Mickey King, a successful pulp novelist responsible for such titles as My Gun Is Long and The Organ Grinder, who is invited to ghost-write the autobiography of a mystery celebrity. His client turns out to be a former actor, played by Mickey Rooney, well-known for his gangster roles and real-life gangster connections – but death is around the corner, and King finds his commission to be a lot more complicated than he first imagined.

A favourite of J.B. Ballard, Pulp has long existed in the shadow of its predecessor. Tonally, it could not be more different – Get Carter never had the time for sight gags and one-liners – but it's a real gem in its own right and fully deserving of a wider audience. This brand-new restoration from Arrow Films aims to right than wrong.

detroit-2017-new-on-dvd-and-blu-ray

Product Description: From Kathryn Bigelow, the award-winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, comes the gripping story of one of the most terrifying secrets in American history.

Featuring masterful supporting performances by Will Poulter (The Revenant), Algee Smith (Earth to Echo), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), John Krasinski ("The Office") and Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War), Detroit is a "visceral thriller" (Rafer Guzman,Newsday) that "demands to be seen" (Matt Goldberg, Collider).

election-1999-criterion-collection-dvd-and-blu-ray

Product Description: Perky, overachieving Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon) gets on the nerves of history teacher Jim McAllister (Matthew Broderick) to begin with, but after she launches her campaign for high-school president and his personal life starts to fall apart, things spiral out of control. In Alexander Payne's satire ELECTION, the teacher becomes unhealthily obsessed with cutting his student down to size, covertly backing a spoiler candidate to stop her from steamrolling to victory, and putting in motion a series of dirty tricks and reckless promises with uncanny real-world political parallels. Adapting a then-unpublished novel by Tom Perrotta, Payne grounds the absurdity of his central dynamic in the recognizable the setting is his hometown of Omaha, and the accomplished cast is rounded out with nonprofessionals and distills his closely observed take on deeply flawed humanity to its bitter but stealthily sympathetic essence.

Jennifer Lawrence to star in Burial Rites
Jennifer Lawrence has joined the cast of the drama "Burial Rites". The film is based on the novel of the same name written by Hannah Kent and will be directed by Luca Guadagnino. Guadagnino is currently enjoying a lot of awards buzz for his highly acclaimed romantic drama "Call Me by Your Name".

Lawrence will star as Agnes Magnusdottir, the last woman to be publicly executed in Iceland in 1830 for killing two men and setting fire to their home. The story follows Agnes during the last months of her life, as she awaits confirmation of her death sentence by the high court, forging emotional and romantic bonds while reflecting on her supposed crimes.

The film will be produced by Allison Shearmur ("Rogue One: A Star Wars Story"), Justine Ciarrocchi and Lawrence, and executive-produced by Gary Ross ("The Hunger Games") and Jerry Kalajian. Shearmur had the following to say about the film in a statement:
"Luca Guadagnino is a masterful storyteller who brilliantly captures the nuance of the human condition in his films. I cannot wait for him to bring his original voice to the raw, visceral brutality, and poetry of Hannah Kent’s haunting true story of Agnes Magnúsdóttir, the last woman to be publicly executed in Iceland for the murder of two men. Jennifer Lawrence, Justine Ciarrocchi, and I love this project and we could not be more excited by the way it is coming together with Hannah Minghella’s passion and drive to get it done at TriStar."

spellforce-3-game-pc

Video Game Description: It is the year 518. The rebellion of the renegade mages, known as the Mage Wars, has been quashed by the Crown. However, it was a Pyrrhic victory: Whole regions have fallen into anarchy, refugees roam the lands in search of shelter, and a mysterious, deadly plague called the “Bloodburn” has arisen and is spreading rapidly.

In times like these people cling to any sign of hope they can find. The Purity of Light, led by a charismatic man called Rondar Lacaine, claims that mages are the source of all misfortune – and that only the second coming of Aonir, the father of all gods, will return Eo to its former splendor.

The story takes place before the acclaimed SpellForce: The Order of Dawn.

a-new-leaf-1971-blu-ray-olive-signature-edition

Product Description: A New Leaf, the deliciously dark and deadpan comedy from writer-director-comedian Elaine May (The Heartbreak Kid), stars Walter Matthau (The Odd Couple) as Henry Graham, who, due to his extravagant lifestyle, has run through his inheritance. After pleading with his incredulous Uncle Harry (played with lip-smacking glee by James Coco, Such Good Friends) for a loan, Henry convinces Uncle Harry to give him the money with the proviso that the loan must be repaid within six weeks or Henry will forfeit all of his property used as collateral. With the aid of his gentleman's gentleman, Harold (a scene-stealing George Rose, The Pirates of Penzance), Henry decides to marry into wealth, and once the vows have been taken he'll decide how to handle getting out of the marriage. Enter wealthy heiress Henrietta Lowell (May), a klutzy botanist and the woman of Henry's get-rich-quick-scheme dreams. But as best laid plans often go, Henry must weather the obstacles placed in his path not only by his Uncle Harry, but by Andy McPherson (Jack Weston, Wait Until Dark), Henrietta's jealous and unscrupulous lawyer. Adding to the amusement are William Redfield (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) as Beckett, Henry's bemused, put-upon lawyer and Doris Roberts (TV's Everybody Loves Raymond) as Mrs. Traggert, Henrietta's pilfering housekeeper.

Upon its 1971 theatrical release, Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote that A New Leaf was "One of the funniest movies of our unfunny age," "hilarious, and cockeyed, and warm." Prescient comments indeed.

letter-from-an-unknown-woman-1948-blu-ray-olive-signature-edition

Product Description: From Max Ophüls, the legendary director of such film classics as The Earrings of Madame de… and Lola Montès, comes a timeless tale of love and obsession. In Vienna during the early 20th century, Stefan Brand (Louis Jourdan, Gigi), a concert pianist whose amorous ways have eclipsed his musical talent, is preparing to flee the city on the eve of a duel to be fought over a recent dalliance when he receives a Letter from an Unknown Woman. Moved by its contents, he'll come to realize that the author is not a stranger, but Lisa Berndle (Joan Fontaine, Rebecca), a woman he's known since her youth and discarded as he has so many others before her. But this time, Stefan's cavalier behavior will have tragic repercussions.

Featuring the master filmmaker's trademark gliding camera, baroque imagery and lush atmospherics (courtesy of cinematographer Franz Planer, The Big Country; art director Alexander Golitzen, Phantom of the Opera; set decorators Russell A. Gaussman, The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry and Ruby R. Levitt, Chinatown), Max Ophüls' Letter from an Unknown Woman, based on Stefan Zweig's novella of the same name, is written for the screen by Howard Koch (Casablanca) and produced by John Houseman (They Live by Night).

Product Description: A Scorpion Releasing Release Screen legend Burt Lancaster (Run Silent, Run Deep) delivers one of the finest performances of his career as a hard-boiled major in command of a grubby Vietnam outpost in this classic film of wartime confrontation. The war was still a conflict and American soldiers were merely advisors, yet the ambushes, the betrayals and the brutality were all very real. While the riveting action concentrates on a single, obscure incident, this excellent, understated and sharply intelligent film illuminates the vast landscape of an era. Directed by veteran Hollywood and TV director Ted Post (Magnum Force) and featuring top-notch cinematography by Harry Stradling (Little Big Man, Convoy) with a stellar cast that includes Craig Wasson (Body Double), Marc Singer (The Beastmaster), Jonathan Goldsmith (Most Interesting Man in the World commercials), Joe Unger (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Clyde Kusatsu (The Challenge), James Hong (Big Trouble in Little China), David Clennon (John Carpenter s The Thing) and Dolph Sweet (Fear is the Key).

in-theaters-i-tonya-november-criminals-just-getting-started-quest

This week in theaters we only have one new wide releases, the comedy "Just Getting Started" starring Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones and Rene Russo. Don't get your hopes up, though, critics are saying this one is a dud. Also, James Franco's "The Room" has expanded nationwide. Some other good stuff can be found in limited release, including the biopic "I, Tonya" starring Margot Robbie and the documentary "Quest". There's also the mystery drama "November Criminals" starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Ansel Elgort, but that one is apparently not very good, either.
