Black Dog Newsletter March 5-11 “Silver Anniversary Plate Edition!”


Holy Hotdogs! I realized that today is the 23rd anniversary of Black Dog Video. You may have heard of it. March 5th, 1996 was the date we first opened our doors to an eager public. I still remember it like it was 23 years ago. So much has changed; we all got older, some of us had kids, some of us passed away, some moved onto to bigger and brighter things. It’s been an amazing ride (I should write a memoir documenting our history) and I feel so lucky to still be able to be doing what I love. And thanks to all of you who have come through our doors and supported us through the good times and the bad. My heart is swollen (I should probably get that checked out) with love, gratitude and bacon. Hear’s to 23 more!

New Releases


Ben is Back – A drug addicted teenager expectantly shows up at his family’s house for Christmas dinner. Ruh-Roh! I imagine that drama and, hopefully, warm-hearted guffaws, ensue. Stars Julia Roberts (remember her?).


Burning – Excellent, award-winning intense drama from South Korea that’s been described as a slow-burning (hah!) mystery about class, economics, sexual jealousy and cats.


Creed II – You wanted some more Creed in your life, you got some more Creed in your life! This time Creed, mentored once again by Sly Stallone, is up against the son of Dolph Lungren, who, if you remember Rocky III, killed Apollo Creed by punching him in the head a number of times.


The Favourite – Wonderfully excellent costume drama/comedy from weirdo filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) that netted Olivia Coleman an Oscar prize. Top of my list of films to see!


House of Cards: Final Season – With Kevin Spacey finally killed off (did he die in the shower or something?), Claire takes over the reigns as Prez of the US of A in the final season of this show that might have gone on for one season too many.


Instant Family – Marky Mark and Rose Byrne find themselves overwhelmed when they take in three foster kids. Hilarious, wacky comedy hijinks, I presume, ensue.


The Vanishing – Cool-looking mystery about three lighthouse keepers who disappear after finding a chest full of gold. Gerry Butler and Peter Mullan are two of the three keepers of the lighthouse.
