The Black Dog Newsletter April 29-May 6 “It’s a Date Edition!”


Mark your calendars, write it on your forearm, shave the date into your dog as May 26th will be the date forever known as The Big DVD Sale Strikes Back! Drop into the Cambie store starting at 11am and running until 3pm (you can still rent after noon but it might be a little more challenging than normal) and feast upon thousands of awesome DVDS and Blu Rays that we’ve recently acquired! Lots of great titles – cult, horror, weird, not-so weird, classics, contemporary, plus tons more – to be had. Prices will be reasonably priced of course as we want these lovely items to find a good home. And as usual, you pay in cash, we pay the tax! More details to follow…

New Releases!


Ballad of Buster Scruggs – Pretty good, beautifully shot short-story effort from the Coen Brothers. Not all the episodes work but, hey, it’s the Coens! Are you not going to watch this?


Dragged Across Concrete – Mad Mel Gibson and Very Vince Vaughn are two corrupt cops who delve into the underworld to get what they want. From the fella that made the excellent Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99. Can’t wait!


Mega Time Squad – Dude steals a magical bracelet that allows him to go back a few minutes in time but doing so creates more versions of the himself. So they form a gang called Mega Time Squad (just like the title!). Sounds like this could be fun!


Mirai – Nice, Oscar-nominated animated fare about a kid who encounters a magical garden that allows him to travel through time and hang out with his relatives. I dunno, if I had time travel abilities, I’m going to dinosaur times! Or Mad Max times! Or both!


Project Blue Book Season 1 – X-Filesy sounding show about a guy (Littlefinger from GoT) who investigates UFO encounters. Encounters of the 3rd (and maybe even sexy) kind!


Serenity – Strange sounding film has Mat McConaughy as a fishing boat captain who has weird, twisty and mysterious things happen to him. Or something. I don’t know.


Tickled – “A descent into Hell” is how one of my employees describes this odd, disturbing doc about online tickling competitions. But it’s much more than that he assures you.


What They Had – Nice-looking cast – Hillary Swank, Michael Shannon, Robert Forester – in this nice-looking movie about family matters and such.
