Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending December 27th

Tis that time of year again – time to feast until your eyeballs explode, drink until your liver swarms around your midsection forming a bloated liver belt. All with impunity! And don’t forget to stock up on films for the holidays as well, as you will need some sort of respite to escape the relatives and family and debauchery. Below you can find a few Christmas favorites here at Black Dog that you might find enjoyable.

New Releases for Tuesday December 21st

Devil – The devil traps a bunch of people in an elevator and starts killing them off one by one for some reason. Based on a true story (may not be based on a true story). Starts out not too bad (despite the title “Story by M. Night Shamalyan) but suffers from not enough gore or tension. And OK time waster for you horror aficionados out there.
Don Giovanni – Italian costume drama about a libertine who is exiled to Vienna for some reason who falls into favour with some composers named Salieri and Mozart (who?) and goes on to inspire Old Wolfey (that’s what his friends called him) into writing the famed titular composition.
Easy A – Well received comedy about a girl (Emma Stone) who uses the high school’s rumour mill that she has slept with some dudes to advance her social standing. Ah, high school, how I don’t miss thee. Also on Blu Ray.
Family Guy: It’s a Trap! – More family guy spoofing the Star Wars. If you want really good Star Wars spoof may I suggest Robot Chicken?
Salt – Angelina Jolie and her lips run and shoot and jump their way through this silly non-sensical thriller. After being outed as a possible Russian spy, Salt goes rogue and a bunch of stuff happens and blows up for some reason that basically left me scratching my head. Also on Blu Ray.
Step Up 3: Electric Boogaloo – Sorry no 3-D on this third excursion into the dance flick that “pumps you up like nothing before it!”
Wall Street 2: Electric Boogaloo – Sorry, again, no 3-D which a good thing unless you want to see scaly Michael Douglas in all his Gordon Gekkoness parade around in this sequel to, you guessed it, Wall Street. Also on Blu Ray.
