The Black Dog Newsletter February 28-March 5 “Did You Know Edition!”


Did you know that we rent out Blu Ray players? Did you know that we rent out DVD drives for laptops and such (we will as soon as I test it out). Did you know that we sell Blu Ray players and DVD machines? All these things that you didn’t know! Now you do!

New Releases!


Color out of Space – Richard Franklin directs Nic Cage in the HP Lovecraft tale of a meteorite striking a remote farm and all hell breaks lose! Yes to all of that please!


Fleabag Season 1 – Much ballyhooed comedy-drama from England finds a smirking hilarious woman making her way in wacky London towne. Excellent series!


Frozen 2 – The second Frozen movie for those of you scoring at home.


Knives Out – Excellent whodunit set in a big house with a lot of famous actors – James Bond, Captain America, Halloween, General Zod, Hereditary, Sorry to Bother You and Christopher Plummer (who probably replaced Kevin Spacey). Can’t wait to check this one out.


In Fabric – Awesome sounding weirdo film about a cursed dress that brings nasty things to it’s wearer. From the fella who made Duke of Burgundy. Blu Ray only.


Leaving Neverland – Huge doc about how gross Michael Jackson was. Too bad he died before he could share a cell with Cosby and Weinstein.

The Black Dog Video Newsletter Feb 18-24 “Sucking the World Dry Edition!”


My friend and local artist, Grant Mercs, rendered this totally accurate portrait of Jeff Bezos, richest glob in the universe, sucking in all the money in the world for himself. Just a friendly reminder to shop local! And now back to your regularly scheduled newsletter…

JoJo Rabbit –A young fella, who loves Nazis and is enrolled in the Hitler youth, finds out there’s a young Jewish girl living in his house. Did I mention that his best (imaginary) friend is Hitler? Did I mention that it was a comedy (with some heavy drama involved)? Did I mention that I loved this film?!


Midway – Another re-telling of that famous battle with the planes and the boats and the guns and the bombs and the hey-hey in WWII that turned the tide for the good guys. From disaster artist Roland Emmerich.
