THE DVD SHOPPING PLANNER (JUNE 2004)
by Erik Childress

Welcome again to the monthly DVD Shopping Planner where we inform you of all the titles streeting during the month so you know what is just itching to jump into your collection. Each month we’ll examine the DVD trends and hopefully steer you towards some happy buying.



CAN’T LIVE WITH ‘EM, BUT APPARENTLY YOU CAN KILL ‘EM
A lot of people get married in June. Weather gets hotter too so you can probably expect more divorces as well. Or worse. Murder and mayhem from both sexes is the greatest trend of the month. Nutty circumstances lead Harvey Keitel to want to knock off Cameron Diaz in the overlooked Hitchcockian black comedy, Head Above Water. Also from New Line is Ryan O’Neal hiring Chazz Palminteri to shoot Cher in the head in Faithful. James Spader meets the girl of his nightmares, Madchen Amick in all her naked glory in 1994’s Dream Lover from MGM. The unrated director’s cut of Demon Lover bares no relation.

Not that the titles would tell you, but on the bad husband side there’s 1985’s Perfect Husband from New Concorde and on a more serious note, the made-for-TV flick The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story with Dean Cain. Continuing the pattern for you I.Q. freaks, there’s also the Balki-free Perfect Strangers from 1985 with a killer moving in on a little boy’s mommy and the Lynch-ian New Zealand effort from 2003 known as, well, Perfect Strangers with Sam Neill as an insane one night stand. Andie MacDowell is the victim of her husband’s Deception and Meg Tilly is the mark of Rob Lowe’s Masquerade. Neither of their ploys are as psychotic as the husband-and-wife serial killers created by B-movie goddess, Debbie Rochon, in Seduction Cinema’s latest offering, Suburban Nightmare



You want to go back to those femme monsters for a second? How about Charlize Theron’s Oscar-winning makeup role as “the first female serial killer” Aileen Wuornos in Monster? For kicks, double-it-up with Nick Broomfield’s documentary Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer also premiering from Columbia this month. Olivia De Havilland is a woman suffering in an insane asylum in Fox’ classic The Snake Pit and porn queen Marilyn Chambers has a diseased vampiric armpit in David Cronenberg’s new special edition of Rabid. Kiss of Death from 1995 actually has nothing to do with these films nor there to easily poke fun at David Caruso’s career. It’s actually a pretty solid thriller from Barbet Schroeder and co-starring Nicolas Cage and Samuel L. Jackson.



GO AHEAD, MAKE MY MONTH!
Two of the best films of 2003 hit DVD in June. The first of which is the surprising-but-duly-nominated City of God from director Fernando Meirelles. Compared favorably to Scorsese’s GoodFellas, this Brazilian epic is as dynamic a piece of filmmaking you’re going to see; an exciting and brilliant piece of storytelling. From Brazil to the USSR we go for New Yorker’s Tycoon: A New Russian reportedly based on the life of Boris Berezovsky. David Mamet takes us around the world when Val Kilmer tracks a kidnapping victim in the well-crafted Spartan. (Trust me, it’s a far cry from Kilmer’s embarrassing work in the recent Stateside.) The other great crime film of last year was Clint Eastwood’s masterful Mystic River which won richly deserved Oscars for both Sean Penn and Tim Robbins and nominations for Marcia Gay Harden, Brian Helgeland’s adaptation and Eastwood himself. In light of it’s release from Warner Bros., Universal is jetting out two more Eastwood flicks, Coogan's Bluff from director Don Siegel and Eastwood’s Play Misty For Me follow-up, the all-but-lost romance Breezy with William Holden and Kay Lenz



WOOKIN PA NUB IN AW THE WONG PACES
You know, I go to Vegas just about every year and not once have I ever come across a hooker with a heart of gold. Perhaps I should rephrase that. If love can’t be found with a psychopath and all else fails, pay for it I guess. And I’m talking about DVDs, sicky. We’ll jump right back into William Holden’s love life with Paramount’s The World of Suzie Wong where he plays an American artist who falls into the arms of a Chinese prostitute. Jeremy Irons becomes obsessed by the prostitute profession’s nicer cousin, the courtesan (Ornella Muti) in Volker Schlondorff’s Swann In Love from Home Vision. Anna Magnani is an ex-prostitute trying to make a life for her son while evading her evil pimp in Criterion’s edition of Pier Paolo Pasolini's Mamma Roma. Criterion also remasters Jean-Luc Godard’s tribute to American musicals, A Woman is a Woman, with Anna Karina as a striptease “artist” looking to have a child. Isn’t it lovely when it all comes full circle like that? As a bonus, don’t forget about Criterion’s incredible package of The Lower Depths featuring Jean Renoir’s 1936 and Akira Kurosawa’s 1957 versions of the Maxim Gorky play.



TAKE ME OUT TO SOME GAME, ANY GAME!
Aw forget dem broads, eh?! Hockey is over, the NBA Finals are in tow, baseball is in full swing and the DVDs are all over the sports this month. Universal is releasing a 15th Anniversary Edition of Field of Dreams, one of the most magical films ever made complete with commentary by Kevin Costner, director Phil Alden Robinson & producer Charles Gordon and a wealth of extras. If you’re from Boston, you may enjoy the documentary, The Curse of the Bambino. If you’re a die-hard Cubs fan from Chicago, you may say “shut the hell up and get in line!”

Roy Jones Jr. may have gone down recently but The Greatest lives on, now with a few more minutes in Michael Mann’s and Columbia’s Expanded Edition of Ali with Will Smith. The underbelly of boxing gets the comedic treatment in Ron Shelton’s scripted The Great White Hype with Samuel L. Jackson, Peter Berg and Damon Wayans from Fox.

If you can’t get behind any of the teams in the NBA Finals, you may want to delve into the past with NBA’s Dynasty Series from Warner Bros. There’s the L.A. Lakers Complete History and if you’re from Chicago, you can revel in the period we love (Chicago Bulls 1990s). Of course, if you’re from Boston you can say “get in line.” WB’s series also salutes the All-Stars of the NBA Foundation and Paramount shoots up Connquest: The Official 2004 NCAA Men’s Championship.



Passing over to football, Buena Vista intercepts the controversial ESPN drama, Playmakers (The Complete First Season), one of several major series premiering on DVD in June. Also from WB is NFL Films Super Bowl Collection: Super Bowl XI-XX. For more worldly sporting aptitude you can get into A&E’s First Olympics: Blood, Honor & Glory or the BBC’s Manchester United: Play Like Champions about the underappreciated field of Soccer. Is poker a sport yet? TV is doing its best to qualify it as such and A&E has Breaking Vegas to help make the case. If you ARE more into the niche sports, venture into Tokyopop’s continuing series about the world of street racing (Street Fury Exposed: Best of Street Fury-Uncut) or the incredible true story of a pair of endangered mountain climbers in one of the year’s most heart-palpitating adventure stories, Touching the Void.




NO COWBOYS EATING PUDDING HERE
Saddle up because no matter who your favorite cowboy is, chances are you’ll find out to you’re liking. Cliff Robertson directs his way to a rodeo in J.W. Coop. Alan Ladd stars IS Whispering Smith, Glenn Ford IS The Man from Colorado and Gary Cooper IS The Plainsman. War hero Audie Murphy has No Name on the Bullet, John Wayne takes on The Spoilers and his Quiet Man co-star Maureen O’Hara snuggles up with Jeff Chandler in War Arrow. William “Wild Bill” Elliott headlines volumes 5 & 6 of VCI’s Red Ryder double features. And finally, for a western triple feature, you would do it for Randolph Scott (RAN---DOLPH—SCOTT!!!) with Universal’s Albuquerque & When the Daltons Rode as well as Columbia’s Hangman's Knot .



EASTERN SWORDS & BULLETS
AnimEigo presents the next two chapters of the Lone Wolf & Cub series with parts three and four ( Baby Cart in the Land of Demons and Baby Cart in the Land of Peril) as well as another in the blind swordsman series Zatoichi at Large. Home Vision gives us an idea where Tarantino lifts some of his ideas in the works of director Yasuharu Hasebe with his blood-soaked action epics Bloody Territories and Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter. Of course, if not having the real thing doesn’t bother you, then you can see Bruce Li in the Game of Death homage/ripoff, Goodbye Bruce Lee.



FUN COLLECTIONS FOR ALL AGES
If a more family-based adventure is your speed, then Warner Bros. has just what you need this month with The Tarzan Collection featuring six of his greatest tales ( Tarzan the Ape Man, Tarzan Escapes, Tarzan and His Mate, Tarzan Finds a Son, Tarzan's Secret Treasure and Tarzan's New York Adventure). Not included in the collection but available separately for the first time is the 1983 Hugh Hudson updating of Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes with Christopher Lambert and for the adults, there’s the Bo Derek frolic fest from 1981, Tarzan, The Ape Man. (How much O’Keefe is in that movie? MILES O’Keefe!)

VCI Entertainment also has some family fun in store with another collection of serials including Terry and the Pirates and Bela Lugosi in Return of Chandu (“One of those things burned me…”). Also on tap is a double feature disc of Steve Reeves in Hercules & Hercules Unchained.



Other collections this month include WB’s Cary Grant: The Signature Collection including Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, My Favorite Wife and a pair of others you’ll be reading about. Docurama has two titles in The Sid Caesar Collection (The Buried Treasures and The Fan Favorites) and Koch delivers a five-volume set of classic television in the Red Skelton Comedy Collection. Anchor Bay packages together Sleeping Dogs and Smash Palace into The Roger Donaldson Collection and Universal gives us hotties Drew Barrymore and Marguerite Moreau in the Firestarter Two-Movie Collection .



LIKELY PAIRS
Classic movie coupling finds its share of titles in June, going back to Love Happy with Marilyn Monroe & the Marx Bros. from Lions Gate, Fancy Pants with Bob Hope & Lucille Ball from Paramount and Fox’s Out to Sea with one of the last pairings of the great Jack Lemmon & Walter Matthau. Sonny & Cher get the biopic treatment from MPI in And The Beat Goes On while former Grease songbirds John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John are back in the classic cult stinker Two of a Kind from Fox. Finally, Paramount gives us the long overdue release of the underappreciated (in its time) 80s spoof of 60s beach party flicks, Back to the Beach, with Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon, not to mention a host of great cameos.



SPOOFS
Keeping within the spoof spirit, Warner Bros. is releasing a 30th Anniversary Special Edition of Blazing Saddles including a commentary with Mel Brooks and a tribute to the late, great Madeline Kahn. On the flip side of Brooks’ career this month there’s also Dracula: Dead and Loving It with a commentary by Brooks, Steven Weber, Amy Yasbeck & the writers. For a better horror parody, look to the more recent The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. It’s a far cry from the more serious The Creeping Flesh with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee or the kitschy Sundance spoof Die Mommie Die!



THE EARLY CAREERS AND THE OVERLOOKED
Ten films this month will be sitting on the shelf with some name stars in it that have either been forgotten about or never brought to our attention. Director Jerry Schatzberg paired a young pre-Ducky Jon Cryer and Demi Moore for No Small Affair even if it turned out to be just that. Schatzberg did the same thing for Andy Garcia and Ellen Barkin in HBO’s Clinton and Nadine from 1988. That same year, Denzel Washington played a war veteran fighting hometown corruption in For Queen and Country. Cinematographer Mikael Solomon teamed a young Reese Witherspoon and Ethan Embry (then known as Ethan Randall of “Dutch” fame) for a trek across the desert in A Far Off Place. And if that’s the Kalahari then Kansas is A Cool Dry Place where Vince Vaughn cares for his son after a divorce. Julia Stiles doesn’t live there but plays the titular Carolina in a romantic comedy with Shirley MacLaine, who must finally be happy about playing a GRANDMOTHER!!! Speaking of which, Lauren Bacall deals with an assortment of dangerous characters in the mystery, Gone Dark with Claire Forlani and Henry Czerny. My version of a 3 Way though would somehow involve Gina Gershon and Ali Larter though. Steve Buscemi takes a nutty After Hours-like trip with clowns, strippers and priests in a night of 13 Moons and Molly Ringwald stars with one of the victims of The Blair Witch Project, Joshua Leonard, for a lighter evening of romance with In The Weeds.



DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR KIDS ARE?
As if the stages for the worst parents are the planet have aligned in June, one minute you’ve got the Teacher's Pet in Disney animated fashion and next you’re trying to stop them robbing banks in Fox’s Catch That Kid. High school comes along and they’re stupid enough to stay behind in Paramount’s Summer School (Carl Reiner’s fun 1988 flick) and then they’re struggling to achieve The Perfect Score on their SAT’s, a task with a little more zing to it in the slight, but decent “Savage” Steve Holland satire from Fox, How I Got Into College. Of course in-between there’s always room for vacations like Dreamworks’ Eurotrip, which for the girls could go awry right into finding My Baby's Daddy or landing in Amsterdam and ending up like the lads in Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting which is finally getting the collector’s series treatment from Miramax, complete with commentary and multiple extras.



WAR! WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
Memorial day has come and gone but the “war” in Iraq wages on so there’s always time to look at the futility of it all on DVD. Paramount gives us the facts in the documentaries Rebels & Redcoats: How Britain Lost America and Liberty! The American Revolution. From there and working our way up to WWII is the overlooked story of captured soldiers Robert Carlyle and Kiefer Sutherland forced to work on the Japanese “railway of death” in To End All Wars Cary Grant leads a U.S. submarine into Japanese waters in Destination Tokyo (part of The Cary Grant Signature Collection). From the German side of things comes the ultimate submarine tale with Wolfgang Petersen’s original five-hour masterpiece Das Boot: The Original Uncut Version from Columbia. War is certainly its own horror, but Lions Gate’s Deathwatch and MTI’s The Bunker makes it even more so which our own Scott Weinberg calls “Saving Private Ryan meets The Amityville Horror or Platoon meets Session 9” Columbia also introduces a SuperBit edition of Ridley Scott’s tragic Black Hawk Down

Television got into the mix in the late 80s with the first small screen dramatic series about the Vietnam war as Columbia presents Tour of Duty: The Complete First Season. Of course, don’t forget about Season Six of M*A*S*H from Fox or Rhino’s more patriotic, real American hero in G.I. Joe (Season 1, Part 2).



Anthony Minghella twice tried to blend the struggles of war and swooning novella romance. His Oscar-winning The English Patient gets a long-awaited special treatment from Miramax, complete with director’s commentary, an interview track with the cast & crew, deleted scenes and more. His latest was the somewhat Oscar-snubbed (save for Renee Zellweger), Cold Mountain. No waiting on this special edition as it comes complete the first time with commentaries from Minghella, Jude Law, Nicole Kidman & editor Walter Murch, deleted scenes and much more. Out-classing both films and covering many of the same themes, also coming from Buena Vista, is Map of the Human Heart with Anne Parillaud, Jason Scott Lee and John Cusack. Director Vincent Ward may have missed out on the opportunity to film The Last Samurai for several years, but he scored with this film and it’s worth checking out if you actually love the Minghella Daily Double.

Three more classic stories get the adaptation this month. Lions Gate has a 1978 version of Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables with Richard Jordan & Anthony Perkins and a 1975 version of Antony & Cleopatra. Finally, Fox has Arthur Miller’s The Crucible featuring Daniel Day-Lewis, Winona Ryder and Joan Allen.



LITTLE PINK HOUSES FOR YOU AND I
Peter Jennings reports on that aforementioned Bush war in MPI’s War With Iraq: Stories From The Front. He also takes a trip across the great U.S. of A. to explore cultural identities during In Search of America and documentarians Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman venture into the South to dissect the perhaps unfairly stereotyped redneck culture in Where Are We? from New Yorker. The history of transportation gets the treatment in A&E’s America on the Move 1876-2000 and five Chinese monks emigrate to the land of spiritual opportunity in the documentary Shaolin Ulysses - Kung Fu Monks In America. And no, it wasn’t Lars Von Trier harping on the immigrant experience (from Sweden to Denmark), but director Bille August with Max Von Sydow delivered the harsh reality in 1987’s Best Foreign Language Oscar winner, Pelle the Conqueror from Fox.



WHERE IT IS CHASTE, IT IS NOT ART
So said Pablo Picasso and it applies to all artforms, many of which presented in their element on DVD this month. New Yorker moved the evolution of the painting film La Belle Noiseuse this month to join a pair of releases from MGM including Brian Dennehy as the obsessive George Costanza wannabe (just kidding) in The Belly of an Architect and Jose Ferrer as Toulouse-Lautrec nearly 50 years before John Leguizamo took on the role in 1952’s Moulin Rouge. Home Vision looks at the life of caricaturist Al Hirschfeld in the Oscar-nominated documentary The Line King and Johnny Depp plays a tortured writer in David Koepp’s Stephen King adaptation, Secret Window.



Years after his death, Tupac Shakur returns through his own words in the acclaimed Tupac Resurrection. From rap to Nashville we turn when Kris Kristofferson teams up with Willie Nelson in Alan Rudolph’s Songwriter. From those two songwriters to another two in Wellspring’s feature-length documentary Broadway & Hollywood Legends: The Songwriters - Charles Strouse/Arthur Schwartz then onto more history with Kultur’s Music Hall Days and Docurama’s fascinating Sing Faster: The Stagehands Ring Cycle about the San Francisco Opera’s undertaking of Richard Wagner’s most daunting production. Robert Altman and Neve Campbell take us to the ballet in The Company and somewhere out there someone wants to learn the infamous dance moves and You Got Served: Take It to the Street will show you how to serve your friends.



HOLLYWOOD & POLITICS – LIKE NO BUSINESS YOU KNOW
Nathaniel West’s scathing novel about the business of Hollywood comes to life in John Schlesinger’s The Day of the Locust from Paramount. Director James Ivory sets The Wild Party at a Hollywood party during the end of the silent era and reportedly based on the Fatty Arbuckle scandal. Also from MGM is some early Eric Bogosian in Special Effects, about a director basing his latest project on a murder that HE committed. For a more realistic look into the world of filmmaking, Michael Caine narrates Koch’s Golden Gong: The Story of Rank Films, British cinema's legendary studio and for a peek around the Sundance Film Festival, Marina Zenovich's Independent's Day is available from Docurama. For the less glamorous side of celebrity, you can always turn to politics. James Coburn stars in the satirical The President's Analyst also from Paramount this month and New Yorker is releasing a
20th Anniversary Collector's Edition of The Times of Harvey Milk with filmmaker commentary, an alternate ending and much more.



GOOD ALIEN / BAD ALIEN
Which one are you? If you’re nice and sweet and on missions of piece, then Fox has Ron Howard’s wonderful fantasy Cocoon and its less-than-necessary sequel Cocoon: The Return on tap and Buena Vista has the 80s family adventure Flight of the Navigator. If you’re a nasty, slimy sort then Columbia has the straight-to-video sequel Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation and its animated counterpart Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles - Trackers . Finally, Universal (in a similar tactic to their Van Helsing) releases the animated The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury alongside the Vin Diesel sequel to Pitch Black hitting theaters on June 11.



COMEDIES (STILLER & STILLER-FREE)
Studies have proven that Ben Stiller has been in every film released in 2004 and NASA scientists are hard at work on verifying that he’s in every DVD released this month. We can see how it would be worth a shot. Stiller’s first film of the year actually beats Envy to DVD and that’s the surprise smash Along Came Polly with Jennifer Aniston. Two of his earlier films get the special edition treatment in June. It’s been 10 years since Stiller starred and directed Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke in Reality Bites. He provides a commentary for the DVD. The best of the three though comes from Miramax with the collector’s series edition of Flirting With Disaster. Truly, one of the funniest films of the 90s, it comes complete with deleted scenes and outtakes.

If Along Came Polly is more up your alley, then you can take a gander at the curiously sad Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore romantic comedy, 50 First Dates. If you like your squares a bit edgier, you can always listen to what Cedric the Entertainer is saying this time round in Barbershop 2: Back In Business. And if you want nothing BUT edges, then Billy Bob Thornton drinks and swears and yells at children in Bad Santa and even more in the unrated edition, known as Badder Santa. It may just be worth it for the included tribute to John Ritter. God rest his soul. But the true pick of the month is Thomas McCarthy’s wonderful The Station Agent with Peter Dinklage, Patricia Clarkson and Bobby Cannavale. It was one of last year’s best exports from Sundance, so don’t overlook it.



SPIDER WHO?
Did you know about some sequel to one of the most successful movies ever made coming out in theaters this month? In case you didn’t, Columbia is going to frontload you with reminders. Not only are there two new editions of the original Spider-Man (the SuperBit Edition with a commentary by Tobey Maguire and J.K. Simmons and the Deluxe Edition with numerous extras and a commentary by Sam Raimi and Kirsten Dunst), but also the first three volumes of Spider-Man: The New Animated Series (The Mutant Menace, High Voltage Villains and The Ultimate Face-Off). Never one not to jump a bandwagon, but Buena Vista will also capitalize with the original Spidey animation (Spider-Man: The '67 Classic Collection) as well as Spider-Man vs. Doc Ock



MORE CRIMEFIGHTERS
For those who have had your complete Spider-Man experience and just can’t wait for Halle Berry to stink up the screen in Catwoman, there are better buttkickers coming to DVD this month. Before I begin, every guy should take a deep breath and reach back deep into their psyche to recover their first crush/love/lust experience with Lynda Carter. And exhale. OK. Wonder Woman: The Complete First Season is being gifted to us by Warner Bros. this month. Doesn’t that make you feel good? Can you think of a comparable set of gams? Neither can I? Although that’s not to knock the modern WW equivalent brought to life by Lucy Lawless. Anchor Bay releases Xena: Warrior Princess: The Complete Fourth Season and that’s a pair of great-lookin’ buttkickers I want on my shelf side-by-side. Throw in Victoria Pratt from the WB’s Mutant X: Season 2, Vol. 2 from ADV Films and I’m in heaven.

Of course, there are some male-oriented justice seekers out there as well. MGM releases the RoboCop Trilogy package complete with a special edition of the original with commentary and unrated footage only available prior on the Criterion release. RoboCop 2 and RoboCop 3 can also be bought separately while the 1987 sci-fi masterpiece is only available in this set. As special editions go, Miramax continues their line with the Cop Land (Collector's Series), the terrific modern crime story/western with as loaded a cast as you’re likely to find outside of Ocean’s Eleven (Sylvester Stallone, Harvey Keitel, Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro, etc…etc…) It contains deleted scenes and a commentary by James Mangold, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Patrick and the producer. For something a little less serious, Anchor Bay is releasing the Linda Blair/Pat Paulsen diddy, Night Patrol. But the real Keystone Kops gem of the month is naturally Paramount’s release of Reno 911!: The Complete First Season, just in time for the second helping of Comedy Central’s hilarious send-up of Cops.




TELEVISION FIRSTS
Along with Playmakers, Reno 911 and Wonder Woman, here are June’s Complete First Season Television DVD premieres: The A-Team, C.S.I. Miami, The Dame Edna Experience, Dead Like Me, The Dukes of Hazzard, The Irish R.M., The Joe Schmo Show, Monk, National Geographic’s Taboo, Nip/Tuck, Punky Brewster, Quantum Leap, Who's The Boss and Wire in the Blood.
