Aisle Seat 5-30: Unofficial Summer Kickoff Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 5/29/2023 - 10:00 PM
The new documentary AT THE VIDEO STORE (72 mins., 2019; ETR) is a love letter to the human workers who were mostly supplanted by Netflix mail subscriptions and Redbox kiosks shortly after we entered into the DVD era. By the early 2000’s, no longer was it necessary to make an effort to rent and watch a movie – or receive suggestions, however informed they may have been (or not), from people you may have hardly known in response to “what should I watch tonight?” Ease of convenience trumped the human connection – a topic James Westby’s doc ponders as it remembers the past and salutes the small stores still making a go of it around the country.

Aisle Seat 5-23: The May Vintage Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 5/22/2023 - 10:00 PM
After the success of “The Thief of Bagdad,” producer Walter Wanger and Universal looked to emulate the Technicolor fantasy of Alexander Korda’s classic. What they came up with didn’t quite possess the same enduring artistic attributes as its predecessor, but still managed to become popular box-office hits – especially thanks to the teaming of Jon Hall and Maria Montez. Appearing in no less than six films together, the pair became synonymous with ‘40s/’50s adventure cinema – the kind celebrated in Imprint’s fantastic new TALES OF ADVENTURE COLLECTION Blu-Ray box-set.

Aisle Seat 5-9: A SUPER Home Video Celebration
Posted By: Andy Dursin 5/8/2023 - 10:00 PM
It’s another big month for 4K UHD enthusiasts, as multiple studios have launched a series of classics in the fledgling format. Most of these films need little introduction to fans, who are likely to wonder if they’re worth plunking down additional funds for the umpteenth time. With the new SUPERMAN 5-FILM COLLECTION 1978-87, the answer is – mostly yes – despite the fact there’s a major caveat involved with “Superman: The Movie,” the first of the Christopher Reeve “Man of Steel” adventures, and one very curious, and unintentional, music issue involving "Superman IV."

Aisle Seat 5-2: May Madness Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 5/1/2023 - 10:00 PM
Debuting on 4K UHD in the U.S. from Kino Lorber – and in a far superior transfer compared to a Studio Canal format release elsewhere around the world – is Sidney Lumet’s classic tale of police corruption, SERPICO (130 mins., 1973, R). A taut Waldo Salt-Norman Wexler adaptation of Peter Maas’ book, based on the true story of an uncompromising New York City police officer (one of Al Pacino’s greatest performances) who refuses to cave into the system, offers a slew of familiar faces in supporting roles, from F. Murray Abraham to Judd Hirsch and Tony Lo Bianco, and compares favorably with the best police thrillers of its era.
