Janis: Little Girl Blue - Special Director's Edition
Manufacturer: FilmRise Brand: FilmRise
Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic of all rock & roll singers, a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1970 at age 27. With â€œJanis: Little Girl Blue,â€ Oscar-nominated director Amy J. Berg (â€œDeliver Us from Evil,â€ â€œWest of Memphisâ€) examines Joplinâ€™s story in depth, presenting an intimate, insightful portrait of a complicated, driven, often beleaguered artist. Joplinâ€™s own words tell much of the filmâ€™s story through a series of letters she wrote home over the years, many made public here for the first time (and read by Southern-born indie rock star/actor Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power). Joplin was a powerhouse when she sang, and her recordings have never left the radio or the hearts of rock fans. Bergâ€™s â€œJanis: Little Girl Blueâ€ offers new understanding of a bright, complex woman whose meteoric rise and sudden demise changed music forever and continues to influence female musicians. "Janis: Little Girl Blue," written and directed by Amy J. Berg and produced by Academy Award-winner Alex Gibney (â€œGoing Clear,â€ â€œTaxi to the Dark Sideâ€), features exclusive interviews with musicians Pink, Kris Kristofferson, Melissa Etheridge, Bob Weir, Juliette Lewis, famed TV presenter Dick Cavett, counterculture filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker and the Joplin family. This Special Director's Edition DVD come...

Survivor - The Complete First Season
Manufacturer: Paramount Brand: Paramount Home Video Model: 2238044
Every incredible episode from the debut season of the reality show supreme-Survivor- where 16 ordinary Americans compete for one million dollars by surviving. The contestants are marooned 20 miles off the coast of Borneo and forced to fend for themselves in hopes of outlasting the others in the group which meets every 3 days to vote one person off the island and the show. 1999-2000/color/11 hrs, 4 min/NR/fullscreen. Here's where it all began. The first season of Survivor dominated the ratings in the summer of 2000, helped spur the reality-TV craze, and inspired countless water-cooler jokes about getting voted off the island. The first season established the formula that would continue, with sometimes surprising variations, over numerous subsequent seasons: 16 people intended to represent the American mosaic are stranded far from civilization (in this case, the island of Pulau Tiga, off the coast of Borneo), struggle for food and shelter, compete in a series of physical and mental challenges, and at the end of each three-day episode vote out one of their fellow contestants. After 39 days, the one sole survivor who is able to outwit, outplay, and outlast the others wins a million-dollar prize. Because the Survivor craze preceded the craze for complete-season DVD boxed sets, the first season was represented on DVD and video by a 150-minute highlights package called Season One: The Greatest and Most Outrageous Moments. Now, all 13 episodes are available in a five-disc set (t...
