Some murderous 90's jailbait; the tale of a loving father and his mutant son; and a killer Norwegian tsunami... this is another small, but very satisfying week in Blu-ray releases.
So let's check out this week's New Releases below, and be sure to click the pics to order yourself some flicks!
Alicia Silverstone was only 15-years-old when The Crush was made (17 when it was released), which makes it even more controversial, given the overtly sexual nature of the flick. Then again, this is a cheesy B-grade Thriller from the 90's, and it's pretty tame by today's standards, so maybe it's not all that controversial after all.
It's a cool movie from back in the day though, and I'm curious to see what Shout Factory has done with it on Blu-ray.
- NEW Audio Commentary with writer/director Alan Shapiro.
- NEW The Doting Father – an interview with actor Kurtwood Smith.
- NEW Stung By Love - an interview with actress Jennifer Rubin.
- Original Theatrical Trailer.
- TV Spot.
The more I think about Midnight Special, the more I'm coming around to the idea that it's one of the best Sci-Fi movies of the past few years. The Blu-ray is pretty bare-bones, but it's bound to look and sound gorgeous, so it's a worthy addition to any Sci-Fi collection.
- A Closer Look at the Five Characters in Origins (Featurettes)
- The Unseen World -- Director Jeff Nichols shows how the unique, unseen world exists alongside out own, why only Alton can see it and what its existence means to us.
The Wave is easily one of the best disaster movies that we've ever seen. It's exciting, intense, earnest, and its characters felt real. It's an extremely well-constructed movie that Hollywood could really learn a lesson (or ten) from when it comes to how to do a "big" movie in a very small, effective way.
This is one move that we're definitely eager to re-visit on Blu-ray.
- Behind the Scenes of The Wave.
- The Wave Visual Effects Featurettes.
- Interview with Director Roar Uthaug.
- Theatrical Trailer.
- At 72, Danny Trejo is still kicking ass, and Dead in Tombstone also has Mickey Rourke as Satan, so what the hell, we'll check it out.
- The Criterion Collection's release of Fantastic Planet should be a huge hit with lovers of animation.
- Scream Factory's release of Rollercoaster hearkens back to a time in the 70's where every situation was turned into a disaster movie, no matter how ridiculous or mundane. Should be fun to relive this one.
- We'd give Dark Awakening a go, based on Lance Henriksen's involvement alone.
- And everything else, as always, it a crap-shoot.
