Black Dog Video Newsletter December 19-25 “Winter is Here Edition!”
It’s less than a week until the only day of the year that we’re closed! We’ll be open Noon until 6pm on Sunday (Christmas Eve) and closed on Christmas Day. Make your plans accordingly. And of course, don’t forget to shamble on down to the stores, not only to get some fine films, but to grab some lovely gifts for the ones you love or your family. We’ve got gift certificates, hoodies, t-shirts, Studio Ghibli merch, cool mugs and lunch boxes, other stuff! I’m still debating whether or not to do a newsletter next week, but if one doesn’t show up, please don’t freak out.
Brawl in Cell Block 99 – Vince Vaughn must fight his way through a bunch of tough guys in prison for some reason. From the fella who brought you the amazing and brutal Bone Tomahawk. I cannot wait to see this!
Dunkirk – Chris Nolan (Memento) takes his fine cinematic eye to the beaches of Dunkirk for this 3/4s amazing movie. Thousands of British soldiers are trapped on the beach as the Nazi’s approach to kill them all. It’s up to regular folk and their regular boats to rescue them. It’s a pretty riveting film for most of the running time but it falters, like most of Nolan’s films, (in my opinion) near the end. I won’t give away any spoilers except to say that the Allies won the war and the Nazi’s lost.
Jeepers Creepers 3 – Supposed horror movie about a scarecrow or something that eats people. Seems they’ll make a horror movie about anything these days. What’s next, a killer snowman? Oh wait, that’s been done. Maybe a bed that eats people? Seen it. Killer tires? Yep. Possessed hair extensions? Who knew? Zombie beavers? Sigh.
Leatherface – Be there when little Leatherface gets his fist chainsaw! Share the precious moments with him as he fashions his first mask made out of human skin. Awww. They grow up so fast! I guess when you’re born with the name “Leatherface” your lot in life is pretty much laid out for you. Directed, for some reason, by the folks that made the outstanding French horror film, Inside.
Lego Ninjago Movie – Fun Lego commercial, er, I mean movie! If you liked the others ones (I did) you’ll enjoy this one as well.
Mayhem – A virus infects a bunch of white collar workers in a working building (offices I think they’re called) causing them to act out on their worst impulses! A cautionary tale on the inherent dangers of the corporate world and it’s eats dog eat dog nature or a fun excuse to create some on-screen bloodletting and craziness? You decide. DECIDE! (Blu Ray is here, DVD should be arriving this week)
Coming Through the Rye
Battle of the Sexes
Mountain Between Us
We’ve been getting a lot of calls about folks wanting to get rid of their DVD collections. We do accept donations, of course, and we also are willing to pay a modest sum for select DVDs. If you want to declutter your home and have any cult, horror, classics or Criterions, we’re happy to help you out.
Hey, it snowed today. Cool. I hope that everyone has a really swell holiday – make merry, be kind, be safe. See you soon!
