HAPPY NEW YEAR



FROM THE BIG SCREEN:
"Flatliners arrives dead-on-arrival: boring, mediocre, bland. A remake of the 1990 "Flatliners," which itself was not such a great film -- it was notable only for its assemblage of rising young stars: Keifer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Kevin Bacon and Oliver Platt. Five medical students, hoping to gain insight into the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment: By stopping their hearts for short periods of time, Nina Dobrev finds out that life after death is only meant for the dead in the top 2017 horror film, Flatliners. each triggers a near-death experience, allowing them to fathom the afterlife -- and the supernatural consequences of trespassing to the other side. Flatliners one stars Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, Kiersey Clemons, Kiefer Sutherland. Directed by Niels Arden Oplev, who brought us "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

THIS WEEK'S BEST BET:


In 1960, following on from the success of their collaboration on "Some Like it Hot," director Billy Wilder reteamed with actor Jack Lemmon for what many consider the pinnacle of their respective careers: "The Apartment." C.C. "Bud" Baxter (Lemmon) is a lowly Manhattan office drone with a lucrative sideline in renting out his apartment to adulterous company bosses and their mistresses. When Bud enters into a similar arrangement with the firm's personnel director, J.D. Sheldrake (Fred MacMurray), his career prospects begin to look up ... and up. But when he discovers that Sheldrake's mistress is Fran Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine), the company's elevator operator and the girl of his dreams, he finds himself forced to choose between his career and the woman photo for The Apartment - Limited Edition he loves. Winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, "The Apartment" features a wealth of Hollywood's finest talent -- on both sides of the camera -- at the top of their game. By turns cynical, heart-warming and hilarious, Wilder's masterpiece now shines like never before in "The Apartment - Limited Edition" all-new, 4K-restored edition from the original camera negative, with original uncompressed PCM mono audio and optional 5.1 remix in lossless DTS-HD Master Audio. Extras include audio commentary with film producer and historian Bruce Block; new appreciation of the film and select scene commentary by film historian Philip Kemp; "The Flawed Couple," a new video essay by filmmaker David Cairns on the collaborations between Billy Wilder and Jack Lemmon; "Billy Wilder ABC," an overview by David Cairns on the life and career of the filmmaker, covering his films, collaborators and more; new interview with actress Hope Holiday; "Inside the Apartment," a half-hour "making-of" featurette from 2007 including interviews with Shirley MacLaine, executive producer Walter Mirisch, and others; "Magic Time: The Art of Jack Lemmon," an archive profile of the actor from 2007; original screenplay by Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond (BD-ROM content); theatrical trailer; special collector's packaging featuring newly commissioned artwork by Ignatius Fitzpatrick; collector's 150-page hardcover book featuring new writing by Neil Sinyard, Kat Ellinger, Travis Crawford and Heather Hyche, generously illustrated with rare stills and behind-the-scenes imagery.
