'It Happened One Night', 'Tootsie' and 'L'avventura' Coming to Criterion in November

15 August 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Criterion has announced their November slate of releases and among them is Frank Capra's romantic-comedy classic It Happened One Night and Blu-ray upgrade of Michelangelo Antonioni's L'avventura and Sydney Pollack's Tootsie starring Dustin Hoffman. First off, and most exciting as far as I'm concerned, is Capra's It Happened One Night, which I speculated previously would be added to the collection sooner rather than later. Starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, this is an all-timer in terms of romantic comedies and Criterion is delivering it with an all new 4K digital restoration, new conversation between critics Molly Haskell and Phillip Lopate, the 1997 feature-length documentary Frank Capra's American Dream, Capra's first film, the 1922 silent short The Ballad of Fisher's Boarding House, the American Film Institute's tribute to Capra from 1982 and the film's trailer. The release arrives on November 18. The other title I'm excited about is Antonioni's L'avventura, the »

Ros Journal (6/12/14): Portrayal of the Classes in Film

12 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I was watching the Michelangelo Antonioni documentary "The Eye that Changed Cinema" that comes included with Criterion's L'eclisse Blu-ray when Antonioni said something that intrigued me: What's the difference between the human being who does one job and the human being who does anotherc Between the person who has money and the one who doesn'tc I've taken Antonioni's questions a little out of context, but the point remains, what about the differences in how rich and poor are portrayed on screenc Whether it's just in the color treatment of the film or the vibrancy of the characters' surroundingsc Do you think they are treated equally and fairlyc restrict paid="true" When it comes to black-and-white films, the portrayals of a lavish lifestyle were frequently defined solely by a person's means -- the car they drive, the house they live in, the clothes they wear, etc. Certainly in some situations the lights shine brighter, »

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Cosmos,' 'True Detective,' 'All That Heaven Allows'

10 June 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"True Detective: The Complete First Season"

What's It About? This creepy HBO series stars Woody Harrelson and

Matthew McConaughey as troubled detectives on the hunt for a killer in 1995, and as the possible subjects of an investigation in the present day. The crazy conspiracies and weird worldviews presented by writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto and the masterful direction by Cary Fukunaga make this a series to obsess over. Time overlaps as our antagonists and their associates are interviewed in the

Why We're In: The Internet exploded with theories about "True Detective," and although they didn't necessarily prove to be fruitful, there's still plenty to examine and re-examine in each episode. Plus, there are audio commentaries, deleted scenes, interviews, and other behind-the-scenes goodies.

What I Watched, What You Watched #248

8 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This week it was all theatrical screenings for me. I caught Edge of Tomorrow and The Fault in Our Stars during the week and yesterday morning I saw How to Train Your Dragon 2 before heading to the Paramount Theatre for the stage version of "Once", which I enjoyed, but did have a few issues with. Otherwise I did watch the first episode of "Sherlock's" third season as it just came available on Netflix Instant and I watched about half of Michelangelo Antonioni's L'Eclisse on Criterion Blu-ray as it hits shelves next week and I will have a review for you, hopefully as it comes out, but it is feature rich and I will have to carve out some time. Oh, and I've started reading "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City", but I'm only 10% of the way through so I don't really »

'Picnic at Hanging Rock', 'L'eclisse' and 'Hard Days Night' Coming from Criterion in June 2014

17 March 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I just received my review copy of Ingmar Bergman's Pesona (3/25) today so I'm a little high on Criterion love at the moment and only minutes after receiving that in the mail I received today's announcement listing the films coming to the Collection in June. I'm sure many will be excited to see Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock getting the Blu-ray upgrade. The remastered release includes a new piece on the making of the film, a new introduction by film scholar David Thomson as well as Weir's 1971 black comedy Homesdale among other additional features. The disc will hit shelves on June 17. The title I'm most looking forward to is Michelangelo Antonioni's L'eclisse the third film in his informal trilogy that includes L'avventura and La notte. This is the only one of those three I haven't yet seen and what a cast as it tells the story of »
