For the release week of 8/22/17:
Garv’s Pick of the Week:
Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 [Blu-ray / Lionsgate]: Listen up, you primitive screwheads! This is my BOOMSTICK! Now, tell me again. Which video is “pick of the week?” That’s right.
Additional Titles of Interest —
Beggars of Life [Blu-ray / Kino Lorber]: Louise Brooks dresses like a boy and joins a band of hobos, but she still looks gorgeous in this silent classic from William Wellman, digitally restored from original 35mm elements, with a score by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra.
Barton Fink (Special Edition) [Blu-ray / Kino Lorber]: There’s writer’s block, and then there’s “that Barton Fink feeling.”
La poison [Blu-ray / Criterion]: Sacha Guitry’s dark comedy of marriage and murder gets the Criterion treatment (and a Drew Friedman cover)!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 [4K UHD + Blu-ray / Disney]: Marvel’s most enjoyable team of misfits is back to save the galaxy once again. I have to admit, this film choked me up a little. You don’t expect that from a comic book movie.
