Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending March 31

So our big DVD sale is in it’s final death throws and to help choke it out of existence we are lowering the prices on all remaining films. You can now snag a fine quality film for just $3! Yes you read that right, three bones! Or, if you’re feeling like walking on the wild side, you can nab 2 for a measly $5! Gonna run this for about another week. Get on yer spending pants and shuffle on down to the stores.

We are also doing a ticket giveaway for a film at the upcoming David Cronenberg (Black Dog favourite!) retrospective at the Pacific Cinematheque. Just pop into either store and drop a frisky little ballot in our box for a chance to win. Winner at Cambie gets 2 tickets for Dead Ringers. Winner at Commercial gets two tickets to see The Fly. You don’t even have to rent anything, although it would be nice if you did.


New Releases for Tuesday March 25th


At Middleton – Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga act like a couple of giddy school kids playing hooky while on a tour of their kids college. Of course they fall in love and shit. I imagine that there’s dancing, bicycle riding and finding oneself, all set to a contemporary beat.


Beyond Outrage – Takeshi “Beat” Kitano is back behind and in front of the camera in this sequel to Outrage (better title then Outrage 2: The Outraging, me thinks). Much yakusa style violence, I presume, ensues.


Broken Circle Breakdown – Oscar nominated foreign fare (Belgium) finds a couple of lovers and lovers of American Bluegrass music and lovers of tattoos dealing with the illness of their lovely child.


Californication Season 6 – This show is still on? I gave up after 3 or 4 seasons when it kind of turned into Three’s Company but only with lots of swearing and sex.


Delivery Man – Remake of a pretty good Canadian film (Starbuck) finds a really really tall Vince Vaughn (just look at that cover, he must be like 11 feet tall!) as a very fertile guy who’s given out a lot of sperm at fertility clinics over the years, fathering 533 children (that is a huge vat of sperm!). Then a bunch of moms want to legally find out the identity of the father of their kids. He’s going to have to buy an awful lot of Christmas presents! Hijinks, I presume, ensue. Also on the Blu Ray.


Odd Thomas – Small town short-order cook, who can see dead people because, well he just can, meets a mysterious stranger who blows into town with an entourage of soul-sucking beasties bent on raising some hell. It’s up to Odd Thomas, his girlfriend Stormy and Willem Dafoe to stop the onslaught. Heard quite good things about this little number.


The Past – Oscar nominated French/Iranian film finds a guy dumping his wife and kids to return to Iran. His wife then strikes up a new relationship which doesn’t sit too well with the husband who high-tailed it out of there. Drama, I presume, ensues. From the cat who made A Separation. Also on the Blu Ray.


Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery – It’s about time that the powers be finally combined two of societies most valuable properties – talking crime solving dogs and talking steroid monster freak-men in short, tight pants. Enjoy kids!


Veep Season 2 – Season 2 of this great little show that finds Elaine as Vice Prez of the good ole’ U. S. of A. Funny shit, man.


Walking with Dinosaurs – I was interested in seeing this as I love dinosaurs and enjoyed the BBC series of the same name but then I found out that the dinosaurs talk and sing and dance (not too sure about the singing and dancing part). Kind of the let the air out my tires. Lame. Also on Blu Ray and 3-D Blu Ray.


The Wolf of Wall Street – Leo DiCaprio almost won an Oscar for his fine work in this sex and drug-riddled, debauched Martin Scorsese romp through the disgusting world of high finance and the corruption that it breeds. Bring on the debauch! That’s what I say. Also on the Blu Ray.
