Aisle Seat 8-29: Kino Lorber, Imprint End of Summer Bash
Posted By Andy Dursin 8/28/2023 - 10:00 PM
If you, like me, grew up in the ‘80s, you can be forgiven for thinking that Sidney J. Furie was little more than a journeyman director. His attachment to slick but rather anonymous commercial projects like the “Top Gun” rip-off “Iron Eagle” and “Superman IV: The Quest For Peace” weren’t indicative of the kinds of personal projects that informed his earlier work – movies that made an indelible impression on his devotees and offered evocative widescreen visuals to match their often rich human dimensions. Imprint’s latest retrospective Blu-Ray box-set, DIRECTED BY SIDNEY J. FURIE, offers five of Furie’s superior works from the 1970s including the release of two pictures making their home video debuts in any format.

Aisle Seat 8-22: 4K Summer Sizzlers
Posted By Andy Dursin 8/21/2023 - 10:00 PM
Bruce Lee fans have a major reason to celebrate this month with the release of Arrow’s UK “Bruce Lee at Golden Harvest” UHD box-set, which preserves all of the legendary star’s big-screen features in new 4K transfers with one exception: the set only includes a Blu-Ray of Lee’s biggest – and certainly best – cinematic vehicle, ENTER THE DRAGON (99/102 mins., 1973, R), which not coincidentally finds its way to 4K UHD worldwide from Warner this week. This is a smashing UHD restoration of one of the biggest box-office phenoms of the 1970s, released just a month after its star’s untimely passing.

The latest release from Caldera presents David Shire's music for the 1974 TV movie KILLER BEES, co-starring screen legend Gloria Swanson and directed by thriller specialist Curtis Harrington (What's the Matter with Helen?). The disc also includes music Shire composed for two other '70s TV movies - Harpy (1971), and Isn't It Shocking? (1973), a dark comedy-thriller which was an early project from Shire's Yale buddy, director John Badham, who would reunite with Shire for Saturday Night Fever and Short Circuit.

Aisle Seat 8-15: August Catalog Wrap
Posted By Andy Dursin 8/14/2023 - 10:00 PM
Action, adventure, and Cinemascope splendor are ingredients that Hollywood studios attempted to inject into the box-office of the mid 1950s, with Warner Bros. offering a pair of often maligned epics now beautifully restored on Blu-Ray. Leading the charge from Warner Archive is LAND OF THE PHARAOHS (104 mins., 1955), a spectacular restoration of director Howard Hawks’ widescreen box-office disappointment. Less interested in adhering to the “Biblical Epic” formula of its time than some of its peers, this Cinemascope affair – co-penned by William Faulkner – is instead a fascinating portrait of Jack Hawkins’ Pharaoh wanting to construct a great pyramid and doing so with the assistance of an architect (James Robertson Justice) now a slave among his people.

Aisle Seat 8-1: Summer Cavalcade Part 1 - Kino & OCN Wrap!
Posted By Andy Dursin 7/31/2023 - 10:00 PM
Movies based on Stephen King novels, so prevalent on the big screen throughout the 1980s, were boosted in terms of critical acclaim and box-office by Castle Rock’s adaptation of “Misery” in 1990. The production company would go back to the well for numerous other King projects over the course of the next decade, starting off with NEEDFUL THINGS (120/188 mins., 1993, R), an uneven picture that nevertheless offers one of the strongest acting ensembles to be found in any film based on one of the author’s works.
