Ben Affleck's smart comedy about a bogus film shoot cooked up by the CIA to rescue Americans trapped in Tehran takes an unfortunate last turn
Ben Affleck's new movie as a director is an amazing real-life caper straight out of Ripley's Believe It or Not! It tells the true story of some imaginative derring-do on the part of a brilliant and unorthodox CIA agent called Tony Mendez. This is a watchable, enjoyable film, with some hilarious and nail-biting moments, but it sets its face disconcertingly against satire and mischief with a final lurch into schmaltzy, liberal-patriot piety. It is as if Aaron Sorkin, in his most solemn mood, had suddenly taken over screenwriting duties for the final 10 minutes.
The movie is, in effect, based on Mendez's own testimony; as with all spies' tales, we're entitled to our pinch of salt, but his story is just so incredible it »

Just in time for Halloween, Criterion has remastered what’s long been culturally considered one of the most notable pieces of horror film making in cinematic history, the eerie classic, Rosemary’s Baby. Standing as not only the first adaptation of someone else’s material for auteur Roman Polanski, this would mark his first foray into Hollywood, and his final product still stands as template of the film industry’s far-reaching allure to achieve a European arthouse aesthetic successfully melded with mainstream pulp.
Still, to approach this classic title, (that’s become so deeply ingrained in our cultural syntax that nearly everyone knows what the titular baby is really synonymous with), as purely a genre exercise modulated simply to invoke fear and unease, would be a mistake. What makes the film transcend showy thrills is how it plunders into our more collectively subconscious fears, giving us a kitchen sink melodrama »

Rosemary’s Baby is one of those films that I just love. Since it was one of my mother’s favorite films and she had it on DVD, I always watched her copy. However, since I have been on my own for sometime now, I realized this was one movie that I didn’t have on DVD and it has been Out of Print for sometime now. I figured a new DVD release would happen eventually so I held out. Earlier this year, Criterion released drawings that hinted to releases for 2012. One image seemed like a dead giveaway but also seemed right. DVD Active has confirmed that everyone’s suspicion was correct.
The Criterion Collection will be releasing Rosemary’s Baby on Blu-Ray and DVD on October 30, 2012 just in time for Halloween. Read below for all the details.
Release Date: 30 October 2012
Synopsis: Terrifying and darkly comic, Rosemary’s Baby »
- Andy Triefenbach
It has been announced that Criterion will be giving Rosemary’s Baby a Blu-ray release just in time for Halloween. The film is due out on DVD and Blu-ray October 30th, and includes a new HD digital restoration that was approved by director Roman Polanski.
“Terrifying and darkly comic, Rosemary’s Baby marked the Hollywood debut of Roman Polanski. This wildly entertaining nightmare, faithfully adapted from Ira Levin’s best seller, stars a revelatory Mia Farrow as a young mother-to-be who grows increasingly suspicious that her overfriendly elderly neighbors, played by Sidney Blackmer and an Oscar-winning Ruth Gordon, and self-involved husband (John Cassavetes) are hatching a satanic plot against her and her baby. In the decades of occult cinema Polanski’s ungodly masterpiece has spawned, it’s never been outdone for sheer psychological terror.”

It's lesser known that, when not filling his daily machismo quotient filming “Pain and Gain” with Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg, Michael Bay prefers to return to his quiet seaside villa, put on his best Robert Evans hat, and produce. If you've sat through any horror remake credits of the past few years, you'll see Bay's had success at it too, but now he's looking to conquer premium cable with a new swashbuckling series in the works. Deadline reports Starz has issued a straight-to-series order for a new adventure drama following pirates on the high seas, tentatively titled “Black Sails,” with Michael Bay purely in the exec producer chair.
