Black Dog Newsletter for Week Ending March 24th

Here’s a little snippet of a conversation that took place at the Cambie store last week. So one of our lovely, regular customers, we’ll call her Beulah, approached the desk to ask the clerk about the fantastic film, The Hunt. Our friendly and knowledgable video store representative replied, “It’s fantastic!”. But before she could further extrapolate on the fantastic properties of the flick, another customer interrupted her and blurted out read more…

The sale is drawing to a close at both stores in the next couple of weeks. Just added a batch of documentary DVDs to the bins at Cambie and some TV stuff at Commercial. Prices range on the TV stuff but regular DVDs can be had for $5 each or 2 for $8 and even 3 for $10! Come early, come often.

New Releases for Tuesday March 18th

American Hustle – David O. Russell’s fun, funky film tells the tale of a couple of grifters who, for some reason, have to work for the FBI to help bring down some Mafia types and such. Great cast, C-Bale, J-Law, B-Coop and A-Ad all lend to the sexy fun. Also on the Blu Ray.

Frozen – Another animated musical Disney yawn. This one is about perverted talking snowmen (he does have a rather large carrot for a nose) and killer snow bees and singing penguins or something like that. Don’t really know. Don’t really care. Also on the Blu Ray.

MV5BMTc3MzQ5NTA3OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjI4MTYwMTE@._V1_SY317_CR0,0,214,317_

In Fear – Horror dealy that finds a young, nubile couple getting lost driving around the backwoods somewhere where they have backwoods. Of course an unseen tormenter torments them because, well…did I mention the backwoods?

MV5BMjA4MzAxMTE1N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDY2OTIxMDE@._V1_SX214_

Kill Your Darlings – Harry Potter is Alan Ginsberg. That guy with half a face from Boardwalk Empire is Jack Kerouac and another guy is William Burroughs in this bio-picy tale of murder and poetry.

MV5BMTg1NTQ1NDczNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDQyMDU1OQ@@._V1_SX214_

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom – Stringer Bell AKA Luther hams it up as Nelson Mandela in this bio-pic that follows the great man from his humble beginnings as a young upstart hockey goalie (I made that part up) to his becoming the first democratically elected president of South Africa (that part is real). Also on the DVD.

MV5BOTQ3MjQ3OTczMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzQ1MzcxMTE@._V1_SY317_CR2,0,214,317_

On My Way – The lovely Catherine Deneuve is a woman facing a failed relationship and a failing restaurant so she decides to go on a road trip with her grandson for some reason. Life lessons, I presume, ensue.

MV5BMTc0MTQ3NzE4Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzA4NDM5OQ@@._V1_SX214_

Saving Mr. Banks – Mr. Tom Hanks is Walt Disney who tries to persuade Emma Thompson’s author PL Travers to let her adapt Mary Poppins for the big screen. Whaa? That’s what this flick is about? Seriously? Is there at least a monkey knife-fight in it? Also on the Blu Ray.
