Black Dog Newsletter Nov 28 – Dec 4th Edition “Hey No-Face, Where’s Your Face? Edition”


Hey check out these ultra cool Spirited Away No-Face piggy-banks that just arrived! Might be the neatest piece of swag we’ve brought in (so far). Only $19.99. At Commercial and later this week at Cambie. There’s a certain holiday, I’m told, where you’re forced to buy gifts for people coming up. Just sayin’…

New Releases!


American Assassin – Guy’s lady-friend gets taken out by terrorists so he embarks on a journey of revenge. Tough-guy Michael Keaton is there to show him the tough-guy ropes.


Birth of the Dragon – Bruce Lee famously fights another guy in 1960’s San Francisco.


Brigsby Bear – Odd-sounding but very well received little comedy/drama about a kid imprisoned somewhere and the only thing he knows about the outside world is a from a show called Brigsby Bear that was created just for him. It ends and he tries to finish off the show. Or something like that.


Despicable Me 3 – Gru teams up with his charming and nicely-quaffed brother Dru for some sort of scheme. Hilarity, I presume, ensues.


Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards – Lots of actors tell 7 different tales of various stories with different subjects. Hello indie comedy/drama effort.


The Innocents – Tough, heartbreaking drama that finds a bunch of nuns pregnant after being attacked by Soviet “liberators” in 1945 Poland.


Of Horses and Men – Weird-looking Icelandic (go figure) comedy/drama about men and women and horses and love and vodka and tractors and well…watch and you decide!

Fargo Season 3

Black Dog Newsletter Nov 21-27 “Hunky-Dory Edition!”


Everything is fine. Right? Good. Now look at all the great new films we have on the shelves for your viewing pleasure!

New Releases


Brand New Testament – So it seems that God is a grumpy old man living in Brussels with his very opinionated young daughter. Hi-jinks, I presume, ensue in this crowd-pleasing comedy.


Churchill – Another movie about Churchill (Winston) finds old Winnie the British Bulldog grappling with the enormity of Operation Overlord (invasion of France) in 1944.


The Fall Season 3 – The conclusion to the excellent, heavy, dramatic police drama that finds Scully on the trail of a nasty sexual predator played by 50 Shades of Grey.


Good Time – Well-received thriller finds the sparkly Twilight vampire Robert Pattison trying to keep his mental patient brother out of jail after a heist goes wrong.


Hitman’s Bodyguard – Sam Jackson and Deadpool are a hit-man and a body guard (not too sure which is which) in this screwball action comedy. You’re on your own with this one.


I Do…Until I Don’t – Fake documentary comedy written by, directed by and starring Lake Bell about marriage and, like, what’s up with that? The thesis is what if marriage were a 7-year contract with an option to renew? Hilarity, I presume, ensues.


Kedi – Lovely little documentary about cats that live on the streets of Istanbul and how they are mostly loved and well taken care of. Stars Bengu, Deniz and Duman.


Logan Lucky – Steven Soderburgh is back, baby! But did he ever really go away? Doesn’t matter, I’ve pretty much liked everything this guy has ever done. Here’s a comedy crime thriller about some dudes – Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig – who decide to pull off a heist at at NASCAR racing place.


The Only Living Boy in New York – Dude has a thing for his Dad’s mistress. Should make for an interesting Thanksgiving dinner.


Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets – Luc Besson’s sci-fi extravaganza sure looks pretty. A dark force threatens the universe or something and, as usual, it’s up to a couple of teenagers to save everyone.


The Villainess – Cool-looking South Korean revenge thriller (no one does revenge quite like South Korea) about a female assassin who leaves a trail of bodies in her wake while trying to slake her thirst for revenge. I think there might be a little knife work in this one as the IMDB warnings include: stabbed in the head, stabbed in the chest, stabbed in the throat and stabbed in the foot, among other things. Yes please!

Black Dog Newsletter November 14-20 “November Rain Edition”

New Releases!


Dead Shack – Fun, zombie-cabin-in-the-woods type horror-comedy from Canada! Yes please!


Glass Castle – One of those “young girl comes of age in a poverty-stricken dysfunctional family setting” type of dramas. From the writer/director of Short Term 12.


Jungle – New film from Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Rogue, Belko Experiment) shoves Harry Potter into the jungles of Bolivia and makes it hard for him to get out.

Black Dog Newsletter November 7-13 “Brass Monkey Edition!”


Yes, it’s cold out. How cold? Well, you know the old saying…

With this chilly weather I can only suggest some hunkering down with some quality entertainment. We’ve got ya covered.

New Releases!


Atomic Blonde – Charlize Theron stars and kicks much ass as the titular action hero in this action espionage thriller. Best name for a movie this year!


Cars 3 – They’re still making these Cars movies, eh? Guess so.


The Crown – Excellent TV series about the Queen (Liz 2) and her doings and goings-ons in the 20th century.


In This Corner of the World – Lovely, dramatic animation piece from Japan about a girl living in Hiroshima during WWII. Probably not the best place to be.


Inconvenient Sequel – Al Gore still has some wind-power left in his old chops and is here to scare you once again with how dire the world is and what we can do about it.


Ingrid Goes West – Aubrey Plaza is an unhinged internet stalker who moves to LA to insinuate herself into the life of her latest obsession, Liz Olsen, in this very good comedy for the internet age. Which is now.


Marjorie Prime – Cool-looking sci-fi number that has John Hamm (mmm hamm) as a guy who, through use of some new fangled technology, contacts his dead father-in-law in holographic image form. Kinda like Tupac. I think.


Preacher Season 2 – Season 2 of this fun, weird supernatural vampire extravaganza. Good times.


Westworld Season 1 – Cool, violent, sex-filled HBO series based on the fine 1970’s film of the same name. Folks pay for a vacation in the “old west” where all of their desires can be fulfilled. But something is amiss…


Your Name – Excellent Japanamation feature finds comedy and drama in a couple of strangers who seem to be linked in some bizarre fashion. Expect to see this on a few year-end best-of lists.

Coming Soon!

Hitman’s Bodyguard
Wind River
Dead Shack
Limehouse Golem
Poldark S3
