Free Hugs! Black Dog’s Guide to What’s Fresh on the Shelves for Tuesday July 1st

tumblr_mreq40xhAu1rih69uo1_500

So as you all remember, I sent out a notice the other day regarding the new anti-spamming laws our government is bent on wasting a lot of money on. I was a little surprised at the exodus of subscribers, I must say. I’ve had over 10 people, and counting, bail on the my Free Hugs. Usually when folks unsubscribe it is immediately after I send out a publication that contains copious amounts of swearing, nudity, drugs or suggestive situations. I’m hoping that these weren’t regular readers anyway and they just wanted to clean up their inbox or my fragile ego might not be able to handle it.

We are in the final stages of putting together our “In Dog We Trust” campaign that is designed to help save our little shops from succumbing to the scourge of technology. Stay tuned.

Freshly Released

MV5BMjIzNDY1NjgzOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzMzMDEwMTE@._V1_SY317_CR0,0,214,317_AL_

Adult World – What’s a week without a new John Cusack film? I wouldn’t want to disappoint you so here he is again, this time playing a reclusive writer named, get this, Rat Billings. He takes a young, naive writer under his wing while she works at a sex shop. Ai Ca-rumba! DVD

MV5BMjEzOTczNzA0NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTgwNTYyMTE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Afflicted – Great little locally made horror/thriller about a couple of dudes who go on vacation. But wait, there’s more! One of the dudes becomes afflicted (hence the title) with a strange disease that either turns him into a vampire, a super-strong insect like guy or maybe John Cusack. DVD

MV5BMTQ4MzQ3NjA0N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODQyNjQ4MDE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Best Offer – From director, Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Paradiso) comes this nifty little drama/thriller that finds Geoffrey Rush’s auctioneer becoming obsessed with an extremely reclusive heiress who collects fine art. Looks kinda creepy. We like kinda creepy. DVD.

Hinterland Season 1 – Welsh crime-drama TV affair that plays out like a Welsh The Killing. And to me, that sounds like a Welshy good time. DVD.

MV5BMTU5MzgzODkwNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDUwNjg3MDE@._V1_SY317_CR0,0,214,317_AL_

Like Father, Like Son – Cannes winning Japanese film that concerns itself with a businessman who finds out that his kid was accidentally switched at birth. What’s he to do? Switch them back or keep on keepin’ on with the son he’s already raising? Tough decision for some it seems. DVD.

MV5BMTkyMjk2OTk2MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjcwMzg3MDE@._V1_SY317_CR0,0,214,317_AL_

Raze – A bunch of women are abducted and forced to fight each other for some reason. My money’s on Zoe Bell.

MV5BMTg5NDYxMTczNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTc2Nzg2OA@@._V1_SY317_CR148,0,214,317_AL_

Young Doctor’s Notebook – Don Draper and Harry Potter star in this offbeat little comedy/drama type thing about a young doctor who arrives in a small Russian village around the time of the Russian Revolution to work in the local hospital. Let the laughs begin! Never heard of this despite the big named fellas in it.
