The Black Dog Newsletter Dec 5-11 “Late For a Very Important Date Edition!”


Apologies for the lateness of this week’s shipment. It seems that Purolator was overwhelmed by Black Friday, Christmas, Black Christmas, Cthulhu, possibility of a mail strike, melting ice caps and maybe even a Swamp Thing. The films are on the shelves now but future shipments may also be delayed. It’s not like Christmas and such just kind of sneaked up on them this year. Good job!

New Releases!


Happytime Murders – Saucy puppets and Melissa McCarthy team up in this puppet-based murder show. Not for kids as rumours of graphic puppet sex and puppet on puppet violence abound.


Here to be Heard: The Story of the Slits – The title pretty much sums up this music documentary.


Ideal Home – From the director of Hamlet 2 and The Craft comes this nice comedy that finds gay couple Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd (not a gay couple in real life. At least I don’t think that they are) raising a 10 year-old for some reason. Hi-jinks, I presume, ensue.


In Harm’s Way – Dude has to bail out of his bomber after dropping his load on Tokyo after the Pearl Harbor attack. He’s recused by an attractive Japanese woman who hides him in her house. They fall in love or something.


Mission Impossible: Fallout – Might be the best Mission Impossible film to date! I’m not much of a Tom Cruise fan but I do enjoy these flicks and he runs a lot in them which is always entertaining for some reason. Plus it has a scene of Henry Cavill loading up his fists, getting ready to punch someone (you’ll laugh when you see it).


The Nun – The scary nun from The Conjuring 2 gets her own spin-off (kinda like Frazier but with creepy nuns!). Now she’s wandering the halls of a cloistered abbey in Romania scaring the bejeezus out of everyone and it’s up to a priest with a haunted past and a pretty young nun to figure it all out.


Never Goin’ Back – Hilarious and raunchy (from what I hear) comedy about a couple of teen-age high-school dropouts who decide to go to the beach. Give it a spin!


Sharp Objects – Excellent TV show directed by Jean-Marc Vallée and written by Gillian Flynn finds Amy Adams returning to her home town to investigate a murder while she fights some demons. Psychological demons, unfortunately.


Victoria Season 2 – More Queen shenanigans as a young and lovely Elizabeth ascends the throne.


What Keeps You Alive – Nice young newly married lesbian couple shuffle off to the mountains to enjoy everything. But what if one turns out to be a sadistic sociopath serial killer? Ask yourself that!

Coming Soon!

Equalizer 2
The Orville Season 1
All the Creatures Were Stirring
Jack Irish Season 2

Just a reminder – we have lovely Black Dog T-Shirts and Hoodies as well as Studio Ghibli socks, amazing Blu Rays from Shout Factory, Gift Certificates and many other cool things for sale at both locations! Christmas is coming! Stuff those stockings!
