May Madness This Sunday the 22nd.

Less than a week until the end of days (May 22nd) AKA the Crazy-Ass sale at Black Dog Video. Very sad to see our wonderful collection go but happy knowing they are going to good homes.

Here’s what you need to know…

– All catalogue films will be on sale. No New Releases. No TV series (I will not get to price them in time). No Collectibles. The other items will be made available in the coming weeks. The sale will run until we close at the end of June.

– Doors open at noon and close at 6pm (that’s about all we can take)

– You pay CASH (preferred) we’ll pay the tax

– Masks are encouraged to keep everyone safe(ish)

– Because it’s a small shop we’re only letting in a certain number of folks at a time (probably around 15). Please keep your shopping short and sweet. Make a list of things you’d like.

– Please bring your own bags.

– There will not be any deals so please don’t ask

– Please be patient and kind as it’s going to be a trying time for us all. You may not get everything that you want. You can scream into the void after you leave the shop.

It’s going to be a sad/crazy day.

The Batman – If you like your Batmans grimy, wet, brooding, sad, mopey and overly-long, this is the film for you! The first 2/3rds I was like, this is the best Batman movie so far. The last 3rd I was like, when is this going to be over?

Belle – Cool-looking animated number about virtual reality and such.

Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time – Nice-looking doc about the famed author (Kurt Vonnegut) who talks about all kinds of stuff – when he fought Hemingway in the Thunderdome, his time as a snake charmer, when he drank Andre the Giant under the table (these things may or may not be in the film).

Licorice Pizza – PT Anderson’s latest cool dealie follows a couple of crazy kids as they run around L.A. (sih) in 1973. Yes please!

Succession Season 3 – Everyone’s favourite despicable idiotic rich family is back for more wild and wacky adventures. Yes please!

X – Sweet-looking new horror number from Ti West (House of the Devil) finds a bunch of young filmmakers making a dirty movie in a rural farmhouse who get in dutch with the locals who don’t approve of such behavior. Yes please!
