Opening Credits!

Here’s a nice little video discussion from the AV Club over at the Onion discussing Enter the Void and its opening credit sequence along with their picks for other cool opening credits. Good stuff. http://www.avclub.com/articles/enter-the-void-the-dying-art-of-opening-credits,51336/

Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending January 31st

Tough times over here on the Drive as of late. We’ve seen the closing of long time resident Wazubee, the Van East Theatre hasn’t been open in forever, there’s a for sale sign on the window of The Controversial Kitchen and I don’t think I’ve ever even seen The Pond open. Tough times. On the […]

Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending January 24th

I spent this past weekend up on top of a mountain playing in an outdoor hockey tournament. Good times although mother nature put the kibosh on our championship game by raining down upon us a hellfire of the wet stuff like I haven’t seen in a long time. Hard to play hockey in 4 inches […]

Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending January 17th

Great news! Starting tomorrow we are offering a swell new deal. Black Dog is proud to announce the 10 for $35 card. That’s right, you come in, pay us a measly $35 (includes tax) and we give you a punch card that is good for ten rentals! If my math is correct that works out […]

Well here we are, 2011. Sounds so futuristic for some reason. I’m hoping that this year brings a bounty of quality films that we can provide for your viewing pleasure. The first two months of the year offer quite a bonanza as we are starting to get some the better crop of films that were […]

Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending January 3rd

Here it is folks, the last ever newsletter…for this year. And with that brings our list of our favorite and not so favorite films of the past 12 months. It hasn’t really been a banner year for films, especially the stuff oozing out of Hollywood. In fact I’m hard pressed to think of a worse […]

Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending December 27th

Tis that time of year again – time to feast until your eyeballs explode, drink until your liver swarms around your midsection forming a bloated liver belt. All with impunity! And don’t forget to stock up on films for the holidays as well, as you will need some sort of respite to escape the relatives […]

Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending November 29th

What happened? I leave town for a short spell and I come back to find the place in a deep freeze! I feel like a parent who left their kid at home alone for the weekend only to come home and find the place trashed. Oh well, the trip down yonder (Mexico) was quite enjoyable […]
