They’re here! We are now fully stocked with the fabulous new edition of the much heralded Black Dog Video T-Shirts! But wait! That’s not all. We also have a very limited number of hoodies waiting to cover your lovely torso. Shirts are a mere $19.99 (plus tax – damn you government!) and the hoodies are a paltry $29.99 (yes, more tax). I hear that there’s a holiday fast approaching where folks exchange gifts and what-not. Just sayin’.
In case you missed it last week, we here at Black Dog Sciences have compiled a list of the best documentaries that have ever been made on this or any other planet. Check out what we came up with here.
American Horror Story 4: Freakshow – Now with 80% more freaks!
Angst – Nasty piece of business from Germany about a killer who’s paroled and immediately takes up his old killing ways. Gaspar Noe (Irreversible) sights this as one of his favourite all-time films. (There’s even a poster of Angst in Irreversible) So take that!
Fear the Walking Dead – A prequel of sorts to the crazy popular Walking Dead series takes us to LA as the zombie apocalypse is just getting going. I wonder how they even could tell?
Hannibal Season 3 – The last season in this fine gruesome show. Mads Mikkelson is an excellent Hannibal the Cannibal. Nom-nom!
Jellyfish Eyes – Japanese animated family fare finds a young boy moving to a small town where all the children have these weird little creatures as friends. What are they? Where did they come from? How did I get here? This is not my beautiful squishy monster!
Knock Knock – Mediocre filmmaker Eli Roth tortures devoted family man Canoe Reeves (I’m kinda OK with that) with a couple of nasty nubile coeds who show up at his door with mischievous intentions coupled with impure thoughts.
Kurt Cobain: A Montage of Heck – Excellent doc about the life and times of a grunge musician from Seattle. You may have heard of him.
Louie Season 4 – Love me the Louis CK! Funny, smart, sad, shocking. Is there anything he can’t do?
Mississippi Grind – From the directing team that brought you the most excellent Half-Nelson comes this fine gambling drama that finds Ryan Reynolds (don’t let that put you off) and Ben Mendelsohn (might be my favourite new actor on the scene) as a couple of gamblers who gamble their way to New Orleans where they plan on doing, you guessed it, some gamblin’.
(DVDs were tardy – should be here later this week)
Mistress America – Another fine film from Noah Baumbach that stars the amazing Greta Gerwig. Remember Frances Ha? Great film. Greta film. Anyhoo, here she’s hanging around her uptight stepsister in fabulous New York.
No Escape – Owen Wilson and Lake Bell and their cute family are caught up in a coup in an unnamed S/E Asian country and they must escape with the help of mysterious British dude, Pierce Brosnan. But can they escape? The title of the film suggests otherwise.
Roger Waters: The Wall – Excellent concert film doc follows old man Waters as he prepares and performs a little-known Pink Floyd LP called The Wall.
The Seven Five – Another great documentary (lots of those this week)! This intense crime-riddled story is about the dirtiest filthiest nastiest most corrupt cops in all of 1980s New York.
Tangerine – Great little indie-effort about a “working girl” as she traverses the underbelly of Hollywood on Christmas Eve looking for the pimp who broke her heart. Lousy pimp. Note of interest – this film was shot entirely on iPhones. Not too sure if it was a 4 or a 5 or a 6 or a 7.
Transporter Refueled – Crap-tastic action film (is “Refueled” even a word?) has a guy named Ed Skrein stepping into Jason Statham’s kicky boots and doing some transporting.
Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo
