First up is BRIDGE OF SPIES (@ BLU), the latest from everyone’s favorite cinematic dads, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. Based on a true story, Hanks plays a New York lawyer pressed into service by the federal government to conduct the legal defense of an accused Soviet spy, and before too long he finds himself embroiled in a risky attempt to make a prisoner exchange behind the Berlin Wall. This is a low-key kind of spy story, less a thriller than a morality tale. Spielberg makes filmmaking seem so effortless that you might be fooled into thinking there’s not much going on here, but this is a subtle masterpiece. Screenplay by the Coen Brothers!


Then, from David Simon, creator of THE WIRE, comes SHOW ME A HERO (@ BLU), about a local politician in a New York suburb mired in a controversy over public housing that uncovers deep-seated racism in the community and puts his political career in jeopardy. Like BRIDGE OF SPIES this is a quiet, detailed true story about the political and emotional costs of doing the right thing.


As for the rest, don’t forget to check out the following: For cult film lovers there’s a treasure trove this week with new blu-rays of blaxplo parody I’M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA (@ BLU), a robot-free version of MST3k classic GIANT SPIDER INVASION (@ BLU), Japanese extreme insanity WORLD OF KANAKO (@ BLU), and hidden 90’s gem HIGHWAY TO HELL (@ BLU). And don’t forget the sequel to a so-bad-it’s-good classic SAMURAI COP 2 (BLU). Vin Diesel is THE LAST WITCH HUNTER (BLU). More political true stories with OUR BRAND IS CRISIS (BLU) and SUFFRAGETTE (BLU). Lots for animation fans this week with new DC Comics feature BATMAN: BAD BLOOD (BLU), anime classic NIGHT ON THE GALACTIC RAILROAD (@ BLU), a new blu-ray of the beloved SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (@ BLU), and the long-awaited EVANGELION 3.33: YOU CAN (NOT) REDO (@ BLU).
