THIS WEEK'S MOVIE RELEASES:


"Jack Reacher": Fans of Lee Child's wildly popular series of novels about ex-military investigator-turned avenging angel Jack Reacher blanched when they heard that Tom Cruise was going to play the lead in the film adaptation of the author's "One Shot." Reacher, after all, is a 6-foot 5-inch 250 pound blond haired bruiser; Cruise is 5-foot 7-inches, dark-haired and pretty-faced. It'll never work, they said. But, surprisingly, it works: Cruise channels the impulse -- if not the physicality -- of Reacher, and comes across as a witty, sharp, intelligent and violent-if-need-be Tom Cruise in the top action film Jack Reacher hero in a well-laid-out and executed mystery. The film revolves around the shooting of four random people in downtown Pittsburgh by an ex-Army sniper and the arrest of a suspect who, it turns out, may not be the right killer. Beaten almost unconscious on his way to jail, he tells his defense attorney one thing: "Get Reacher for me." And sure enough, Jack Reacher shows up. He knows this shooter from his days as an MP in Iraq -- a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot (four shots hit their mark, one went astray). Reacher is certain something is not right -- and he begins an investigation that quickly escalates in its brutality and concomitant bloodshed. Throw in some wild car chases, a neat guest appearance by Robert Duvall, some hidden agendas, and twists and turns, and you have a fun, exciting thriller (by the way, Reacher makes plenty of mistakes in his pursuit of the truth, a nice touch that makes him human and not just a killing machine). Only weak spot in the film: the delightful Rosamund Pike, here cast as a lame but well-meaning defense attorney. Co-stars David Oyelowo, Richard Jenkins, Werner Herzog (as a very nasty villain) and Jai Courtney.

Also due this week: "Mama," a by-the-book supernatural thriller (executive produced by Guillermo del Toro) that tells the tale of two little girls -- who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed and lived alone for five years -- now rescued and living with their aunt and uncle. Problem is, something or someone took care of them in the woods, and that entity may have followed them back to civilization. Stars Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier, Isabelle Nelisse, Daniel Kash, Javier Botet, Jane Moffat, Morgan McGarry and David Fox. And "Safe Haven," the latest romantic-thriller-tearjerker adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel, this one about a mysterious young woman who arrives in a small North Carolina town who, despite her reluctance to join the tight knit community -- slowly begins putting down roots -- until the dark secrets of her past comes back to haunt her. Directed by Lasse Hallstrom and starring Julianne Hough, Josh Duhamel, Cobie Smulders and David Lyons.

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS:


One of the year's most talked about independent films since its award-winning premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, director Shane Carruth's "Upstream Color" (2012) has been described as baffling and enigmatic ... and that it is. But there's not enough unknown territory to prevent you from thoroughly enjoying this involving treatise on the search for love, communication and safety between people -- especially damaged people (and who isn't, in one way or another, come to Upstream Color Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Cover think of it). The sci-fi-mystery-romance revolves around a woman (Amy Seimetz) who is abducted and hypnotized with a "psychedelic" worm by a crook who depletes her life savings and causes her to lose her job and way in life. When she falls for a man (Carruth), the two come to realize he may also have been subjected to the same process, and they search for a way to talk to each other about their wounds and look for safety in each others arms. As the barriers between them break down, they uncover the plot that wrecked their lives, which also involves a pig farmer who makes music with found noise and who uses the pigs to keep track of the victims. It's a lovingly dreamy trip with gorgeous visuals, immersive music, a mesmerizing story line (just don't try too hard to figure it out) and on-the-edge acting. A must-see. Co-stars Andrew Sensenig and Thiago Martins. Available as a DVD and a Blu-ray/DVD combo in a beautiful package from Cinedigm.

Four years after "Breathless," Jean-Luc Godard reimagined the gangster film even more radically with "Band of Outsiders" (1964), about two restless young men (Sami Frey and Claude Brasseur) who enlist the object of both of their fancies (Anna Karina) to help them commit a robbery -- ­in her own home. This audacious and wildly entertaining French New Wave gem is at once sentimental and Band of Outsiders Criterion Collection Blu-Ray Coverinsouciant, effervescently romantic and melancholy (tropes Godard would soon abandon in his more political and experimental work), and it features some of Godard's most memorable set pieces, including a headlong race through the Louvre. The Criterion Collection has just released a Blu-ray version of the film from Gaumont's recent high-definition restoration, with an uncompressed monaural soundtrack. Extras include a visual glossary of references and wordplay found in "Band of Outsiders"; exclusive interview with cinematographer Raoul Coutard and actor Anna Karina; excerpts from a 1964 interview with director Jean-Luc Godard, including rare behind-the-scenes footage from the film; a booklet featuring an essay by poet and critic Joshua Clover, Godard's character descriptions for the film's 1964 press book, and an interview with the director from the same year.

He's not a household name today (though his character appears in episodes of "Boardwalk Empire"), but Eddie Cantor was the original renaissance man of the entertainment world in the early 20th century, conquering vaudeville, Broadway, records, Hollywood, radio and TV. Cantor began in vaudeville in 1907 in New York, moved to the Great White Way in the Ziegfeld Follies in 1917, then starred in such Broadway musical comedies as "Kid Boots" (1923) and "Whoopee!" (1928), as well as recording such hit records as "Makin' Whoopee," "If You Knew Susie," "Ma! He's Makin' Eyes at Me," "Margie" and "How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down on the Farm (After They've Seen Paree?)." When Hollywood called, he ported over "Kid Boots" (1926) and "Whoopee!" (1930) and starred in "Roman Scandals" (1933) and "Kid Millions" (1934). He went on to have his own radio show in the 1930s and 1940s and had his own TV show in the 1950s. He was one of the participants in a 1919 strike that founded Actors Equity, helped develop The March of Dimes, and stood up against anti-semitism, segregation and censorship. Whoopee DVD Cover Warner Home Video has released two of Cantor's early films (via "manufacture on demand") from the Samuel Goldwyn library, each a perfect example of Cantor's singing, dancing and acting "shtick." "Whoopee" (1930) is a two-strip Technicolor musical comedy adapted from Cantor's smash Broadway show in which he plays a neuroses-laden hypochondriac on vacation in the West who becomes involved with a runaway bride and her warring suitors. The dance numbers are choreographed by a Hollywood newcomer -- Busby Berkeley -- and the bits include a modicum of risque words and actions (for its time). Be warned: there's some nasty stereotyping in the film, particularly in the portrayal of Native Americans and blacks (Cantor dons blackface -- an entertainment staple at the time that few thought anything about -- for a lengthy number). Unfortunately, "Whoopee" didn't play as well as the distributors had hoped for -- some of Cantor's bits were too Jewish or too risque for middle America -- and, in an effort to broaden distribution in the hinterlands, Goldwyn toned down Cantor for "Kid Millions" (1934). Here Cantor depicts a simple Brooklyn boy who finds himself on a collision course with charlatans, connivers, sheiks, and she-devils on the way to inheriting a fortune in Egypt. The film is notable for appearances by Ann Sothern, Ethel Merman, George Murphy, Paul Harvey and Edgar Kennedy --with a surprisingly weird three-strip Technicolor finish. (By the way, this "toning down" became Hollywood's model for reaching the masses in America). Both films can be ordered by pointing your browser to WBShop.com.

Henry Fonda Film Collection DVD Cover Also due this week is "Barrymore" (2012), starring Christopher Plummer in the screen version of the William Luce play about famed actor John Barrymore. Adapted by writer-director Erik Canuel from the 1996 Broadway production for which Plummer won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in 1997, the film follows Barrymore as he rents an old theater to rehearse for a backer's audition to raise money for a revival of his 1920 Broadway triumph in "Richard III." From Image Entertainment. And Fox has released a neat two-volume set of 10 of Henry Fonda's best films: "The Henry Fonda Film Collection" includes 10 discs with "Jesse James," "Drums Along the Mohawk," "The Grapes of Wrath," "The Return of Frank James," "Immortal Sergeant," "The Ox-Bow Incident," "My Darling Clementine," "Daisy Kenyon," "The Longest Day" and "The Boston Strangler"; $49.98.

The Great Escape Blu-Ray Cover Blu-ray debuts include "Brubaker" (1980), starring Robert Redford; a 50th anniversary edition of "The Great Escape" (1963), directed by John Sturges and starring Steve McQueen, Richard Attenborough, James Donald, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence and James Coburn, and loaded with bonus features; "The Verdict" (1982), directed by Sidney Lumet and starring Paul Newman, Charlotte Rampling, Jack Warden, James Mason, Milo O'Shea, Lindsay Crouse, Edward Binns and Julie Bovasso, also loaded with extras; and "Viva Zapata!"

Also from Vinegar Syndrome/CAV Distributing comes "Drive-In Collection: The Dungeon of Harrow/Death By Invitation," the former (1962) a lurid Texas shot gem that follows two survivors of a shipwreck as they find themselves trapped on a remote island, run by a mad baron keen on torture, and the latter (1971) a gritty tale of 20th century witchery topped off with a pleasant touch of psychedelia ...

The Monster Nazi Apocalypse"; $14.95 from CAV Distributing ...

More traditional 'B' fare: "The Assassin's Blade (aka The Butterfly Lovers)" (2008 -- Hong Kong), based upon a famous Chinese legend, tells the story of Zhu Yanzhi, who disguises her female identity in order to be accepted into the country's most prestigious male-only martial arts academy, where she immediately finds herself at odds with -- and becomes attracted to -- her superior; after she reveals her true identity, and the pair express their desire for each other, she returns home to find out that her parents have betrothed her to another. Starring Charlene Choi, Chun Wu, Ge Hu, Xin Mighty Fine DVD Cover Xin Xiong and Siu-Wong Fan; from Well Go USA ... In "Revenge for Jolly" (2012), a young man returns home from an all-night drinking binge with his cousin to discover that his little dog Jolly -- his one true love and the source of light in his dark, solitary life -- has been murdered; he vows to track down the dog's murderer and, armed with a stockpile of firepower in the trunk of his car, embarks on a frenzied, alcohol-fueled wild-goose chase, leaving a bloody path of destruction in his wake. Stars Brian Petsos, Oscar Isaac, Elijah Wood, Adam Brody, Gillian Jacobs, Garret Dillahunt, Ryan Phillippe and Kristen Wiig; from Sony ... Set in the 1970's, "Mighty Fine" (2012) is the story of Joe Fine, a charismatic, high-spirited man, who relocates his family from Brooklyn to New Orleans, in search of a better life. But his devotion to his family knows no bounds, providing them with the greatest life, from a palatial home to a steady string of extravagant gifts, in a spending spree that is wildly out of touch with reality, threatening the very fabric of the family. Stars Chazz Palminteri, Andie MacDowell, Jodelle Ferland and Rainey Qualley; from Lionsgate ... In "The Oranges" (2012), starring Leighton Meester, Hugh Laurie, Oliver Platt and Catherine Keener, the enduring friendship between the Walling and Ostroff families is tested when Nina, the prodigal Ostroff daughter, returns home for the holidays after a five-year absence and enters into an affair with David, head of the Walling family.

SPECIAL INTEREST:


    Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy DVD Cover
  • "Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy" (2013) Broadcast on PBS in January 2013 and narrated by Tony- and Academy Award-winner Joel Grey, the film examines the leading role of Jewish composers and lyricists in the creation of the modern American musical and showcases the work of legends such as Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, George and Ira Gershwin, Lorenz Hart, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. Alongside clips of standout performances (by the likes of Barbra Streisand, Kelli O'Hara, Zero Mostel, Dick Van Dyke, Ethel Merman, Kristin Chenoweth, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, and others), and interviews with songwriters and Broadway luminaries including Harold Prince, Sondheim, Phyllis Newman, Marc Shaiman, David Shire and Mel Brooks, the film co-mingles cultural history with illuminating perspectives on the origins and meanings of some of Broadway's most beloved songs, stories, and shows. Packed with rare archival photos and clips, the film explores the amazing fact that most of America's classic musicals -- from "South Pacific" to "West Side Story" -- and most of the tunes that are part of "The Great American Songbook," were created almost exclusively by Jewish Americans (most of whom used their talents to assimilate into American culture).

  • Citizen Hearst DVD Cover
  • "Citizen Hearst" (2013) Documentary, narrated by William H.

Scott Fitzgerald. It examines his disappointing college days at Princeton, his difficult relationship with fellow author Ernest Hemingway, and his turbulent last days in Hollywood. It dispels the age-old mythology surrounding Fitzgerald, largely created by himself, that tends to glamorize the Jazz-Age and his alcoholism. Includes commentary from Fitzgerald's granddaughter, Eleanor Lanaham, writers Hunter S. Thompson, George Plimpton and Jay McInerney, and literary critic Harold Bloom, with a wonderful in-depth analysis of "Gatsby" and its place in the American canon.

Extras include a 50 minute filming of a real life exorcism. (Disinformation Company).

  • "Nature: What Plants Talk About" (2013) When we think about plants, we don't often associate a term like "behavior" with them, but experimental plant ecologist JC Cahill is trying to correct that perception. The University of Alberta professor maintains that plants do behave and lead anything but solitary and sedentary lives. He builds the case that plants eavesdrop on each other, talk to their enemies, call in insect allies to fight those enemies, recognize their relatives, and nurture their young. Cahill documents the behavior of plants through the use of time-lapse photography and high-tech cameras. $19.99 from PBS Distribution.

  • WWII From Space DVD Cover
  • "WWII From Space" (2013) HISTORY special uses an all-seeing CGI eye that offers a satellite view of the battles of WWII, allowing you to experience it in a way that places key events and tipping points in a global perspective.
