Some of the DVD/Blu-Ray releases this week.
Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return – This has been on my radar for a while. It languished in development for a long time. Then I think it sort of got dumped after Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful. It’s got a great cast, but the collective “MEH” from EVERYBODY sort of keeps me away. But, being the Oz aficionado that I am, I’ll have to watch it at some point.
The Musketeers (BBC) – Why am I just now finding out that there is a BBC series based on the Three Musketeers?!
Legend of Hell House (1973) – 1973 horror classic starring Roddy McDowall, Clive Reville and Michael Gough. It’s based on a screenplay written by Richard “I Am Legend” Matheson which is also based on Matheson’s book Hell House. It’s a haunted house movie but it’s a classic within the genre.
The Double (2013) – Jesse Eisenberg will usually intrigue me and will not usually steer me wrong (except for Cursed….f**king CURSED). The premise of this, like I said is intriguing. I want to see it to see how the whole situation plays out. Check out the darkly weird trailer.
