Wheel on fire, rolling down road

I'm certain the flames are CG, because I've seen a few tire fires in my time, but somewhere out there is a more uncannily scary video of the 60 MPH death wheel. Find it for a special no-reward!

Emilia Clarke isn’t here for your ‘Game of Thrones’ nudity shaming
TwitterFacebook

If you've got a problem with the nudity and sex scenes in Game of Thrones, don't waste your time taking it up with Emilia Clarke. 

Our beloved Daenerys Targaryen has landed the latest cover of Harpers Bazaar and in the accompanying feature, she discusses everything from finding love to Brexit—but the best bit comes with a little rant she goes on about her hit HBO show and the squabble she's picked over the years with some viewers.

‘Bat Pussy’ Is a Lost Mumbleporn Classic, and It’s Our Home Video Pick of the Week

By Rob Hunter

Plus 8 More New Releases to Watch This Week on Blu-ray/DVD!

Welcome to this week in home video! Click the title to buy a Blu-ray/DVD from Amazon and help support FSR in the process!


Pick of the Week

Bat Pussy [AGFA]

Bat PussyWhat is it? The first ever porn parody as Bat Pussy tries to stop an unsatisfying coupling!

Why see it? If god was real there’s no doubt that among his/her most amazing accomplishments would be this new Blu-ray of Bat Pussy. Happily, the AGFA (American Genre Film Archive) is real, and so it’s to them that I instead say thank you. At just under an hour, it’s barely even a movie, but while the length underwhelms you can’t argue with the mirth. From Bat Pussy’s monologue while getting dressed to the mumbleporn improv of the couple, the spontaneously-delivered, profanity-filled dialogue is endlessly entertaining. You can hear them giving each other stage directions! Our leading man lacks an erection through the entirety of the film! There are no opening  or closing credits and no one knows who made the damn thing! To be clear, there are porn shenanigans occurring onscreen throughout, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the funniest releases of the year.

[Blu-ray/DVD extras: New 2K scan, commentary, short films, bonus feature Robot Love Slaves]


The Best

Dolores Claiborne [Warner Archive]

Dolores ClaiborneWhat is it? A woman returns to her home town when her mother — who she despises — is accused of murder.

Why see it? This Taylor Hackford film is often overlooked when it comes to conversations about the best Stephen King adaptations, and it’s somewhat understandable as the film is a slow burn drama rather than a punchy horror movie. But viewers looking for a dark, emotionally-affecting tale brought to life by fantastic actors (Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kathy Bates, David Strathairn, John C. Reilly, Christopher Plummer) can hardly do better. It’s an atmospheric and beautifully-shot film, and now that Gerald’s Game has been adapted the two work well back to back as intended.

[Blu-ray/DVD extras: Commentary]

Time to Die

Time To DieWhat is it? A man is released from prison only to face the family members of the man he killed years prior.

Why see it? Mexican characters are commonplace in the western genre, but you don’t hear much about actual  Mexican westerns. This newly restored gem from 1966 is hopefully just the first of many rediscoveries as director Arturo Ripstein delivers a brooding character piece about regret and consequences, and while the tropes are present they have an appealing anti-Hollywood patina. Lead Jorge Martinez de Hoyos cuts a capable but charismatic lead as a man whose best years have been lost to time, and the characters he finds on the outside are every bit as dense. The difference? While he’s a calm man they’re filled with anger.

[Blu-ray/DVD extras: Introduction by Alex Cox, commentary]

The Villainess

The VillainessWhat is it? A female assassin is double-crossed by a chump.

Why see it? There’s a plot turn late in the film that’s guaranteed to leave you thinking two things in order — first, hey that’s ridiculous, and second, I really should have expected this exact story turn from a Korean movie. It’s a distraction of sorts, but happily it’s one that pales beside the sheer kinetic beauty of the film’s action sequences and its star, Kim Ok-bin (Thirst). The film opens with a first-person POV assault on a gangster’s hangout that pairs technical wizardry with graphic violence while ramping up the excitement and wide-eyed wonder. It’s one of the year’s best action films, and while it lacks the streamlined simplicity of films like John Wick and The Raid it never comes at the expense of the thrills. Seek it out and enjoy this woman’s fury.

The Rest

Birth of the Dragon

Birth Of The DragonWhat is it? Bruce Lee’s most infamous fight didn’t occur on the big screen.

Why see it? Lee was known for having a bravado and ego in his early years well equal to his talents, and that combination led to a legendary fight with a Shaolin monk named Wong Jack Man in 1960s San Francisco. It’s an interesting historical sidenote to his celebrated yet tragic life, and while some interesting observations are made here the film oddly focuses a lot of its time away from Lee and on one of his white students. It’s a strange choice to say the least. The fights are a mix of quick fun and stylized action, and the film does good work recreating 60s SF, but the end result feels very safe and unremarkable.

[Blu-ray/DVD extras: Featurettes]

Good Time

Good TimeWhat is it? A young man tries to avoid the police and rescue his brother from their clutches.

Why see it? Robert Pattinson is the main reason to watch this minor thriller as he delivers an intense and gritty performance as a man trying every possible thing to save his brother and secure a score. It’s After Hours-lite in that everything goes sideways for him, but it’s lessened dramatically by our disinterest in the character. Still, some engaging visuals and energetic sequences hold the attention throughout.

[Blu-ray/DVD extras: Featurette, music video, commentary]

High School Lover

High School LoverWhat is it? A teen girl falls in with a popular actor twice her age, but she soon discovers that in addition to being a cradle robber he’s also a jerk.

Why see it? As Lifetime movies go this is one starring James Franco. Like me, you’re probably thinking that Franco plays the older dude sleeping with the high schooler, but alas, he actually plays the cool dad who loses his cool over the situation. It feels very much like an Afterschool Special — or what I’d imagine one would be like in today’s climate — but it’s progressive fun that moves from tame to sleazy and violent in quick order. Is it believable? Nope. Are the females worthless when it comes to defending themselves? Yup. But ignore its Lifetime origins and give it a spin anyway.

[DVD extras: None]

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

The Hitmans BodyguardWhat is it? A bodyguard is tasked with protecting a hitman, and hilarity ensues.

Why see it? Ryan Reynolds paired with Samuel L. Jackson is pretty much the main reason to watch this action/comedy, and both actors deliver their signature comedic stylings. Happily, the action is equally as fun with plenty of gunplay and car stunts to excite and thrill in between (or even during) laughs. The story’s more than a little silly, and none of the action can be taken seriously, but that shouldn’t be an issue for fans of goofy good times that are both easily digestible and quickly forgotten. The Blu-ray includes some fun extras too in the form of outtakes that are equally worth a watch.

[Blu-ray/DVD extras: Featurettes, commentary, outtakes, deleted scenes]

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

ValerianWhat is it? An ass-kicking space hero is partnered with Dane DeHaan.

Why see it? Luc Besson’s latest plays very much into the stylings, tone, and overall feel of his beloved The Fifth Element, but his latest s a colorful mess dragged down by the two blandest and least engaging leads in the history of space and time. There’s no denying that it’s a visually-attractive world, and comparisons to the likes of James Cameron’s Avatar are well-deserved. Besson’s preference of bright, dynamic colors paired with interesting design choices elsewhere keeps viewers’ eyes open and frequently satisfied. Some action beats work well too including a foot chase in a virtual marketplace. It’s a pretty movie. But… and this is a big ol’ but… the experience is tanked by Besson’s lazy script and two lead performances/personalities that make you wish he had cast recently painted walls in the roles instead. They fare no better as characters, but while DeHaan’s title hero is an absolute, unconvincing dud, at least Cara Delevingne feels like a competent adventurer.

Jay-Z stopped his show to have a touching heart-to-heart with a 9-year-old girl in the crowd
TwitterFacebook

Jay-Z usually doles out his advice and thoughts in his lyrics or op-eds for New York Times, but one lucky fan was on the receiving end of his counsel in the middle of a concert in Cleveland, Ohio this week. 

The Brooklyn-born rapper spontaneously shared some supportive words to the young girl who watched his album 4:44 come to life that night, encouraging her to believe in herself and she could possibly be president of the United States one day.
