Nashville (Criterion Collection) (Blu-ray + DVD)
Manufacturer: Criterion Collection Brand: CRITERION COLLECTIONS
This cornerstone of 1970s American moviemaking from Robert Altman (Short Cuts) is a panoramic view of the countryâ€™s political and entertainment landscapes, set in the nationâ€™s music capital. Nashville weaves the stories of twenty-four charactersâ€”from country star to wannabe to reporter to waitressâ€”into a cinematic tapestry that is equal parts comedy, tragedy, and musical. Many members of the astonishing cast wrote and performed their own songs live on location, which lends another layer to the filmâ€™s quirky authenticity. Altmanâ€™s ability to get to the heart of American life via its eccentric byways was never put to better use than in this grand, rollicking triumph, which barrels forward to an unforgettable conclusion.
Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXVII
Manufacturer: Shout! Factory Brand: GAIAM INTERNATIONAL
There may be no finer (and certainly no funnier) meditation on monsters than this collection of episodes from the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000. As food for thought, we are served subterranean slime people, a giant praying mantis, Soviet spies and, perhaps the most terrifying of all, enormous teenagers from the disturbing menu of Americaâ€™s twisted psyche. Battling these Goliaths for us with their slingshots of sass and silliness are Joel, Mike and their robot henchmen Tom Servo and Crow. The monsters are gruesome and the movies even more so, but the riffs are risible and retaliatory, proving definitively that revenge is actually a dish best served funny. Titles Include: The Slime People Rocket Attack U.S.A. Village Of The Giants The Deadly Mantis Consider this 27th voyage with the Satellite of Love as a tour down Mystery Science Theater 3000's memory lane, as it features some of the earliest episodes from the Peabody Award-winning satire series, as well as entries from its later incarnation on the Sci-Fi (now SyFy) Channel, all of which make their DVD debut with this four-disc set. The poverty-struck creature feature The Slime People (1963) is culled from the show's debut season (1989-1990) on The Comedy Channel (prior to its merger with Ha!, which resulted in the formation of Comedy Central), and if the riffing and interstitial skits lack the rapid-fire, stream-of-consciousness quality on which MST3K made its name, those elements have clearly jell...
We Are Twisted F***ing Sister!
Manufacturer: Music Box Films
In the mid-1970s, Dee Snider and his Twisted Sister bandmates claimed glitter rock for their own, cross-dressing their way to headlining every club within 100 miles of New York City, from New Jersey bowling alleys to Long Island beach bars. With gigs six nights a week, they were the most successful live bar band of suburban New York, selling out 5,000-seat shows fueled by their no-holds-barred stage presence and aggressive metal setlists. But by the early 80s, they found themselves balancing on a double-edged sword, hugely popular with local audiences but without a national following or a record deal to speak of. When Twisted Sister finally got their big break in 1983, they d go on to become one of the biggest glam rock bands of the decade, their over-the-top live shows drawing sell-out crowds and their music videos defining an early MTV network. To anyone who knew the hard-fought battle they d won to get there, the band that killed disco was no overnight success. WE ARE TWISTED FUCKING SISTER! is the mesmerizing, wickedly appealing and never-before-told story of the ten grueling years leading up to the band s legendary career, recounted directly by the band themselves, their managers and their biggest fans.
