Aisle Seat 4-19: April Rundown Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 4/18/2022 - 10:00 PM
A trio of new 4K UHD releases highlight Kino Lorber’s latest format forays, including a Dolby Vision presentation of David Cronenberg’s “Eastern Promises,” the Sidney Poitier-Rod Steiger classic “In the Heat of the Night” and Billy Wilder’s Oscar winner THE APARTMENT (125 mins., 1960), the brilliantly performed 1960 Best Picture winner that’s much more a drama with comedic overtones than a comedy with dramatic passages. Proving equally adept at drama as well as comedy in the film is Jack Lemmon, never better as a clog in the corporate machine who’s loaning out his humble Manhattan abode to philandering executives at his workplace – including new boss Fred MacMurray.

Aisle Seat 4-5: April Arrival Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 4/4/2022 - 10:00 PM
John Landis’ wild ‘n wacky horror favorite AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (91 mins., 1981, R), his offbeat 1981 box-office hit, debuts on 4K UHD this month from Arrow boasting a new, Dolby Vision HDR graded 4K transfer working off color grading Landis himself approved in a 2018 HD master. The movie’s disappointingly flat ending aside, Landis’ revisionist genre exercise remains a blast of enthusiastic, then risk-taking filmmaking from a director coming off a smash success (“National Lampoon’s Animal House”). Though often imitated, Landis’ mix of horror and comedy was groundbreaking at the time of its release, as was its outstanding, Oscar-winning Rick Baker make-up effects.

At the 94th Oscars on Sunday night, Hans Zimmer won the Original Score award for DUNE, and Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell won Original Score for "No Time To Die," the third consecutive Bond movie song to win the Oscar.

Given all the news and Internet attention to the historic event of Zimmer winning his first Oscar since The Lion King 27 years ago, you probably didn't hear that Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage for making a remark about Smith's wife's hair. If you're interested, you can probably learn more about it on the Google.

Aisle Seat 3-22: March Madness Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 3/21/2022 - 10:00 PM
One of the most eagerly awaited 4K UHD releases of the last few years – Paramount’s fully remastered, 50th Anniversary presentation of Francis Ford Coppola’s THE GODFATHER TRILOGY – debuts this week. Is it the “offer you can’t refuse” for 4K owners? Absolutely, as the five-disc package contains all three “Godfather” films plus a bonus disc of supplements, along with no less than three – count ’em, three – cuts of Coppola’s much maligned, though sometimes unfairly scrutinized, “The Godfather Part III.”
