Sisters: Seasons One & Two

Sometimes controversial, sometimes whimsical, always compelling, Sisters follows the trials and triumphs of the four Reed sisters – Teddy (Sela Ward), Alex (Swoosie Kurtz), Georgie (Patricia Kalember) and Frankie (Julianne Phillips) – as they contend with the challenges within their very different lives. Praised for its frank discussion of many highly charged issues that continue to resonate today, Sisters was considered by many to be a game changer in how television explored the lives of women and family.

With all twenty-nine episodes from the critically acclaimed first and second seasons, Sisters: Seasons One and Two represents some of the best and most influential television drama of its time. Created by Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, the developers of Queer As Folk, this groundbreaking, compelling and successful series is “full of sharp lines… and sharper possibilities…” (Entertainment Weekly)!

Reality

A mysterious VHS tape, a giant rat, and killer televisions… Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory) and Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) star in this head-spinning Hollywood satire from the writer and director of Rubber.

In the alternate reality of the entertainment industry, a cameraman (Alain Chabat, Mood Indigo) has 48 hours to pull off the impossible: find the world’s greatest groan sound effect for the movie he dreams of directing or it doesn’t get made. As he embarks on a hilariously bizarre odyssey, fact, fiction, reality and dreams collide in a surreal swirl of comic absurdity. With brilliant turns by top comedians, Reality is a wondrously weird and wild ride through director Quentin Dupieux’s extraordinary imagination.

Hill Street Blues: Season Six

Join the heroic men and women of the Hill Street precinct in the fantastic sixth season of Hill Street Blues, the groundbreaking series created by Steven Bochco (NYPD Blue, L.A. Law) and Michael Kozoll that rewrote the television cop genre with a mix of gripping, dramatic realism and is universally hailed as one of the greatest programs in the history of television.

Combining gritty realism and surprising humor to document both the personal and professional challenges of the officers and detectives who protect and serve, the sixth season of Hill Street Blues continued the series’ tradition of high-quality, compelling television. With top-notch writing, directing, and ensemble acting (from cast veterans Daniel J. Travanti, Veronica Hamel, Bruce Weitz, Joe Spano, Betty Thomas, Robert Prosky and Dennis Franz appearing as Lt. Norman Buntz), the sixth season of Hill Street Blues maintained the program’s dominance as one of the greatest television series of its time, and further solidified its place as one of the all-time finest.

The Bear [25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition]

The Duke Of Burgundy

Sex, bondage, and butterflies: two women explore the extremes of carnal desire in this kinky, deliciously twisted tale of erotic obsession. In a crumbling European estate, butterfly researcher Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen – BORGEN, AFTER THE WEDDING) and her lover Evelyn (Chiara D’Anna – BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO) repeatedly enact a sadomasochistic role-playing game, with Cynthia as the stern mistress and Evelyn her subservient slave. But as the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur, and Cynthia grows increasingly uneasy with Evelyn’s insatiable appetite for punishment, their relationship is pushed to the limit. Dripping with dreamlike imagery, Gothic atmosphere, and a lush chamber pop score by Cat’s Eyes, this critically-acclaimed, darkly comic erotic fantasia is a seductive feast for the senses.

Army Of Frankensteins

An unstoppable terror is set loose upon a nation divided… and history will never be the same!

After a failed attempt to propose to his girlfriend, Alan Jones (Jordan Farris) is beaten within an inch of his life by a street gang. Transported to the mysterious lab of Dr. Tanner Finski and his kid genius assistant Igor, Alan becomes the subject in a series of horrible experiments as part of the doctor’s plan to reanimate the legendary Frankenstein monster. But all bets are off when these experiments lead to a hole being ripped in space and time, pulling an army’s worth of the infamous creatures from hundreds of parallel universes and sending them all back to the 19th century – directly into the heart of a bloody battle between the North and South!

An over-the-top sci-fi/horror hybrid, Army Of Frankensteins is an outrageous film that dares to examine a history that never happened: The War Between The States… of Life and Death.

The Harvest

In his first film in nearly 15 years, the director of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer harks back to the depravity that made his 1986 debut a horror milestone. Equally terrifying, but less based in reality, The Harvest is closer to a fairy tale from Grimm’s darkest nightmares.

Maryann (an impressive Natasha Calis, The Possession) moves in with her grandparents after she’s orphaned. Desperately lonely, the preteen sets out to befriend a deathly ill, bed-ridden boy (Charlie Tahan, Gotham), despite the outright disapproval of his mother (Samantha Morton, Minority Report, Sweet and Lowdown). Maryann’s persistence pays off, however, and during a series of secret visits she gradually uncovers some seriously sinister goings-on in the house…

Morton’s performance as the boy’s overprotective surgeon mom is the stuff of great screen villainy — at once utterly monstrous and tragically desperate — so much so that she makes even frequent heavy Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, Man of Steel), as the more subdued dad, pale in comparison.

Product detail shocker

Shocker [Collector’s Edition]

On October 2nd, at 6:45 a.m., mass murderer Horace Pinker was put to death. Now he’s really mad.

Master of horror Wes Craven (Scream, The Last House on the Left, A Nightmare on Elm Street) directs this exciting visual treat which introduces a diabolical mass murderer who harnesses electricity for unimaginable killing powers.

About to be electrocuted for a catalog of heinous crimes, the unrepentant Horace Pinker transforms into a terrifying energy source. Only young athlete Jonathan Parker, with an uncanny connection to Pinker through bizarre dreams, can fight the powerful demon. The two dive in and out of television programs, chasing each other from channel to channel through stunning scenes of disaster, game shows and old reruns.

The Editor

Rey Ciso (Adam Brooks) was once the greatest editor the world had ever seen. Since a horrific accident left him with four wooden fingers on his right hand, he’s had to resort to cutting pulp films and trash pictures. When the lead actors from the film he’s been editing turn up murdered at the studio, Rey is fingered as the number one suspect. The bodies continue to pile up in this absurdist giallo-thriller as Rey struggles to prove his innocence and learn the sinister truth lurking behind the scenes.

Functioning as a straight-up send-up of Dario Argento, Mario Bava and the cinematic sorcerers of ’70s slasher films, Canadian horror comedy The Editor is a charming tribute to the unsung classics of giallo, an Italian subgenre known for its gory and gruesome erotic horror.

The Bold Ones: The Protectors: The Complete Series

The Protectors stars Leslie Nielsen as Sam Danforth, the deputy chief of police in a volatile California city. He is a conservative law and order type who is brought in from Cleveland to try to keep the lid on, but often is at odds with the city’s idealistic, liberal black DA, William Washburn played by Hari Rhodes.

The Bold Ones series were well known for being some of the best television ever produced; bringing together highly skilled craftsmen to create programs that were a cut about the rest and The Protectors was no exception.

The pilot movie, “Deadlock”, was produced by William Sackheim (“The Law”) and directed by Lamont Johnson (“That Certain Summer”), Emmy winner Daryl Duke (“Payday”, “The Senator”) directed three of the six episodes, Vilmos Zsigmond (“Close Encounters of the Third Kind”) was the cinematographer, bringing a big screen look to the series, and top notch guest stars including Edmond O’Brien, Charles Aidman, James Broderick, John Rubinstein, Robert Drivas and Louise Sorel pumped up the stories with a powerful dramatic flair.

The lack of background music, the soundtrack just being the din of the city and offices where it took place, really grounded the show with a realism that was unmatched at the time.
