This Saturday (16th) marks the 11th annual International Independent Video Store Day! While there’s not too many of us left, you can still pop by and celebrate all that is wild and wonderful about these shops that once dominated the landscape. We’ll have rental and sale deals going all day long so come on down!
We finally have our much-ballyhooed new website up and running! Lots of cool, new things await your lovely eyes including various tiered memberships! Check it out! https://shop.blackdogvideo.ca/
Boys from County Hell – Some burly road workers accidently (sure!) awaken a nasty vampire. Only in Ireland is there a county called Hell.
Crime Story – Tough guy Richard Dreyfuss (hahaha!) seeks revenge on some punks who stole his stuff.
Deep Cover – Pretty solid cops and drug robbers tale with Laurence Fishburne and Jeff Goldblum from back in the day gets the Criterion DVD treatment.
Demonic – Fella who made the great District 9 tries his hand at the scary demon-type film.
Down a Dark Stairwell – Searing doc about a cop shooting a black guy in NY in 2014. You can imagine how that went over.
Free Guy – Good enough comedy with Ryan Reynolds as a video game character come to life. Enjoyable enough until the schmaltzy ending with all the “discovering I love you” horseshit. Jodie Comer steals the show. But overall it makes for a nice light snack.
The Green Knight – Epic medieval tale of Sir Gawain and his quest to make friends (not really) with the fabled Green Knight. This one looks like a banger!
Midnight in the Switchgrass – The moment you’ve all been waiting for – Bruce Willis teaming up with Megan Fox to solve some crimes!
Roadrunner – Very good (and sad) doc about a man admired by many (me included – he’s always on my “3 people to have a dinner with” list), Anthony Bourdain.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins – A guy with, presumably, snake eyes, does some actiony stuff in the GI Joe world (Blu Ray coming soon)
Whitstable Pearl – Nice-looking BBC affair about a restaurant owner/private detective solving a murder in a small English town.
