Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending November 25th

So I was Lying in bed the other morning thinking about the Ku Klux Klan. I read or saw somewhere in the good old US of A, that some folks dressed their small child up in the silly KKK gear for Halloween. I’m no prude when it comes to Halloween regalia…read more…

Please don’t bring this in. Please.

New Releases for Tuesday November 19th


All is Bright – A couple of Pauls, Giamatti and Rudd, star in this dark holiday comedy about a couple of losers trying to make it big selling Christmas trees in New York. Good luck, Pauls!


The Attack – Heavy drama from Israel about a doctor who finds out his wife was responsible for a nasty suicide bombing. Convinced of her innocence, the doctor embarks on a journey to find out the truth. Hope he can handle the truth, whatever the truth might be.


Blackfish – Great documentary about a killer whale – we’ll call him Tilikum because that’s what he’s called – who, while in captivity and made to perform tricks for ungrateful humans, managed to kill several people. They did notice the world “killer” in his title, right?


Broken – Great drama starring Tim Roth about a young girl who’s life changes when she witnesses a violent attack. And guess what? Tim Roth is not the violent attack guy. Must be getting old.


C.O.G. – Based on a short story by the amazeballs David Sedaris, a dude sets out to explore the world only to get stranded on an apple farm. Hilarity and an insight into the human psyche and maybe even apples, I presume, ensue.


Crystal Fairy and the Magical Cactus – Cool-looking road movie finds dickish Michael Cera teaming up with three Chilean brothers who go off in search of a cactus famous for it’s hallucinogenic properties. Along the way, hippie chick Crystal Fairy (with a name like that you have to be a hippie chick. Or a stripper), joins them in their adventure. This one looks like a good time. From the director of the amazing The Maid.


Paranoia – Corporate espionage is the game here that finds Thor’s little brother caught between rival businesses headed by slick Gary Oldman and slickerer Harrison Ford. Thrills and paranoia, I presume, abound. Also on the Blu Ray.


Planes – It’s Cars, but in Plane form. Come on, Pixar, you’re getting kinda lame. Also on the Blu Ray.


30 for 30 – Series 1 – Great series of sports documentaries. Wide range of subjects and even if you don’t like sports, even hockey, these are still great to watch.


The To Do List – The amazing Aubrey Plaza (great name!) stars as Brandy, a comely lass who wants to get “sexually educated” before she hits college. Hilarity and sexual hijinks abound in this raunchy comedy. Try to guess what’s on the list. Hopefully no Cleveland Steamers.


Treme Season 3 – More jazz, more drama, more gumbo (hopefully sans eyeballs) are here to please you.


2 Guns – Marky Mark and Denzel star in this thriller where it seems each of them has a gun. And it also seems that they’ll need their 2 guns as some sort of drug bust goes sideways and these undercover lads have to go on the lam or something like that. Also on the Blu Ray.


We’re the Millers – Drug comedy that finds funny-man Jason Sudeikas recruiting his ne’er-do-well neighbours to act as his family so he can smuggle some pot somewhere. Let the laughs begin! If anyone needs to borrow my family to run drugs somewhere, we can probably work something out. Also on the Blu-ray.


The World’s End – It sure has been a year for “end of the world” films. You’ve got your This is the End, World War Z, Pacific Rim, Grown-Ups 2 (that one is more of a signal of the impending apocalypse) and now this one. Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Bilbo Baggins and some other British drinking buddies attempt to re-create an epic pub crawl they almost did 20 years earlier. But what is lying in wait for them at the last stop of the night? Directed and written by Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead). Also on the Blu Ray.
