Black Dog Video Newsletter September 5 – 11 “Finally! Edition!”


The summer is finally winding down, the kids are finally back to school and we can finally breathe in relative safety. I love the fall – the crisp air, cool nights, Halloween, hearty stouts. Bring it on!

Word of note – the Cambie store will be closed Tuesday September 18th and Wednesday September 19th from noon till 5pm each day. There’s a film crew taking over the spot but they should have everything wrapped up by 5pm. Sorry for the inconvenience.

New Releases!


Beast – Cool, tough British flick about a woman torn between her oppressive family and the loner dude who just blew into town who may or may not be a killer! (should be on the shelves today or tomorrow)


Ghost Stories – The title pretty much tells you what you need to know – three (I think 3) ghostly tales guaranteed to shiver your timbers. (should be on the shelves today or tomorrow)


Happy End – New film from Michael Haneke (Funny Games, Piano Teacher) stars the always great Isabelle Huppert as a member of a family with secrets. Can’t wait. (should be on the shelves today or tomorrow)


Headshot – I’m just going to post the awesome description from the IMDB for this one – Uwais (The Raid) plays a young man who washes ashore, an amnesiac with a serious head injury whose past comes back to haunt him shortly after being nursed back to health by a young doctor. Violence ensues. Sweet, sweet violence.


Hereditary – The best horror, and one of the best films, of the year finds Tony Colette and Gabriel Byrne as the mom and dad of a family that has a history of, shall we say, bad luck. A nice slow burn the builds to a great (if not a tad derivative) last act. Loved it.


Ocean’s 8 – It’s the ladies turn for the heist hoo-haw! Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bulloch, Anne Hatheway and at least 5 other women are getting together for a nice caper at the yearly Met gala. Looks like fun!

Coming Soon!

Silicon Valley S5

That’s it for this week, folks. Stay tuned for some cool upcoming lists that we’re putting together! Hopefully this time next week we’ll have the Black Dog staff’s picks for favourite movies of the 1990s! Until then, keep watching!
