Shane (1953) & The Odd Couple (1968) Blu-rays    

Posted March 25, 2013 06:13 PM by Webmaster

 

 

 

 

      42624_medium.jpgWarnernew.jpg69006_medium.jpgWarner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray releases of director George Stevens' Shane, starring Alan Ladd, Jean Arthur and Van Heflin, and screenwriter/playwright Neil Simon's The Odd Couple, starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. Both classic catalog titles street on June 4th.

 

Shane: Acclaimed director George Stevens' legendary rendition of the quintessential Western myth earned six Academy Award nominations and made Shane one of the classics of the American cinema. The story brings Shane (Alan Ladd), a drifter and retired gunfighter, to the assistance of a homestead family terrorized by a wealthy cattleman and his hired gun. In fighting the last decisive battle, Shane sees the end of his own way of life. Mysterious, moody and atmospheric, the film is enhanced by the intense performances of its cast.

 

The Odd Couple: Neil Simon has a special genius for finding the great hilarity in ordinary people doing everyday things. Like two divorced men who decide to sh are a New York apartment. That's the premise of The Odd Couple, though there's nothing odd in the casting of two Oscar-winning talents like Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. The two veteran funnymen work together with the precision timing of a vaudeville team, but always with bright spontaneity. Lemmon plays fussy Felix, fastidious to a fault. He proves that cleanliness is next to insanity. Matthau is Oscar, who wreaks havoc on a tidy room with the speed and thoroughness of a tornado.

 

Tech specs and special features have yet to be revealed for either release.

Aguirre, Wrath of God Blu-ray    

Posted April 10, 2013 05:27 PM by Webmaster



      70073_medium.jpgbfi.jpgThe British Film Institute has revealed that it plans to release a Dual Format edition of Werner Herzog's Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes a.k.a Aguirre, Wrath of God (1972), starring Klaus Kinski, Ruy Guerra, Allejandro Repulles, and Helena Rojo. A preliminary release date is yet to be revealed.

The Dual Format edition will part of BFI's upcoming Werner Herzog Collection.

In the mid-16th century, after annihilating the Incan empire, Gonzalo Pizarro (Repulles) leads his army of conquistadors over the Andes into the heart of the most savage environment on earth in search of the fabled City of Gold, El Dorado. As the soldiers battle starvation, Indians, the forces of nature, and each other, Don Lope de Aguirre (Kinski) "The Wrath Of God," is consumed with visions of conquering all of South America and revolts, leading his own army down a treacherous river on a doomed quest into oblivion.

Featuring a seething, controlled performance from Kinski, this masterpiece from director Werner Herzog is an unforgettable portrait of madness and power.

Filmaço do Jonathan Demme que ao que parece parou de fazer cinema, pelo menos eu nunca mais vi nada dele. Será que sai por aqui?

 

Não sei sobre o lançamento brasuca do BD de Filadélfia, mas Demme já tem um novo drama (com Wallace Shawn) em pós-produção e outro em pré-produção.
