First up, the Heroes at the Criterion Collection have brought us 1941’s splendid HERE COMES MR. JORDAN (@ BLU), just one of several adaptations of the 1938 play of the same name (although that doesn’t include the Ernst Lubitsch film from 1943). It’s also one of the best.
Next, the Truth is apparently Still Out There. That’s right, it’s the new revival of THE X-FILES (@ BLU).
As for the rest, don’t forget to check out the following: Criterion also has Jean Renoir’s ferocious anti-romance LA CHIENNE (@ BLU). LONDON HAS FALLEN (BLU) is the closest thing to a modern day Cannon Films joint you can ask for. John Goodman is the giant monster in the sorta-but-not-really sequel 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE (@ BLU). A very long marriage might be unraveling in 45 YEARS (@ BLU). From Arrow, another set of vintage Yakuza thrillers, NIKKATSU DIAMOND GUYS V.2 (@ BLU). Paul Naschy grinder CRIMSON (@ BLU) is out in two different cuts. EDDIE THE EAGLE (BLU) is the story of a record-breaking British ski-jumper. Sally Field’s back in the dating pool in HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS (BLU). Pray to Crom with CONAN: THE COMPLETE QUEST (@ BLU). Patrick Swayze drives a big rig in BLACK DOG (@ BLU). SORCERESS (@ BLU) is a very campy low-budget fantasy epic. And just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, JAWS 2 (@ BLU), JAWS 3 (@ BLU 3D), and JAWS: THE REVENGE (@ BLU) all arrive on blu-ray.
