Black Dog Newsletter March 9th to 16th – “Daylight Savings Edition!”

I hope that everyone has adjusted to the Daylight Savings silliness. I mean really, why do we still do this? Seems pretty pointless. And I bet that I’m not the only one who feels this way (cue that Peter Frampton song). I’ll leave you with this clip from John Oliver for proof…

New Releases !

MV5BMjcxNjUyODU3Ml5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMjE1NzU3MTE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Code Black – Documentary about a real tough inner city E.R. (Emergency Room) known as the “hurt locker of medicine”. I guess they’re diffusing bombs and getting shot at a lot. Lousy inner city! Supposed to be pretty intense and pretty amazing.

The Humbling – A short, yelly stage actor (Pacino), who is slowly losing his mind (cue some over-acting), starts a relationship with a young lesbian woman (Gerwig). This sounds like it might be pretty terrible and potentially embarrassing but it’s directed by Barry Levinson from a Philip Roth novel. So it has that going for it.

Night at the Museum 3 : Secret of the Secrets – Or something like that. More museum shenanigans. I haven’t seen any of these films but if you like the first two, there’s a chance you’ll like this one. Another one of Robin Williams last roles.

The Notebook – Tough Hungarian WWII drama finds two siblings enduring the horrors of war while trying to survive the horrors of war. (At Commercial, soon to Cambie)

MV5BMjM4NzUzOTMxNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMjU3MTI0NDE@._V1_SY317_CR0,0,214,317_AL_

Outlander Season 1 – Kind of a sci-fi history, romance, action, swords and the like type TV show that finds a WWII nurse swept back into Scotland of 1743 where she encounters a dashing Scotsman and some peril. Terrible peril. Heard really good things about this despite my rambling synopsis.

Serena – Not to be confused with Selma (you are welcome to confuse the two on your own). This one finds Bradley Cooper (the talking raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy) as a timber baron who falls for a lady named Serena (Hungry Games‘ Jennifer Lawrence). Weren’t these two just in a movie together? She likes to dance and he wears a garbage bag? Maybe they’re next next Bogie and Bacall? The next Reynolds and Deluise?

MV5BMjE0MDM3NzEzOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDc0Njg5MTE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Wolf Cop – Now here’s a film I can sink my teeth into! Get it?! An alcoholic cop finds that he’s been turned into a wolf-man (or werewolf if you please) for some reason. So, with the aid of his partner, he sets out to find out what’s going on! And it’s Canadian!
