Blu-ray, DVD Release: Badlands

20 December 2012 6:25 AM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: March 19, 2013

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray $39.95

Studio: Criterion

Martin Sheen brings murder to the Dakotas in Badlands.

The 1973 crime drama Badlands announced the arrival of a major talent: filmmaker Terrence Malick (Days of Heaven, The Tree of Life).

Malick’s impressionistic take on the notorious Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate killing spree of the late 1950s uses a serial-killer narrative as a springboard for an oblique teenage romance, lovingly and idiosyncratically enacted by Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now) and Sissy Spacek (3 Women). Badlands also introduced many of the elements that would earn Malick his passionate following: the enigmatic approach to narrative and character, the unusual use of voice-over, the juxtaposition of human violence with natural beauty, the poetic investigation of American dreams and nightmares. This debut has spawned countless imitations, but none have equaled its strange sublimity.

Criterion’s DVD and Blu-ray editions of Badlands include the following features:

Bellamy Young: From would-be physicist to 'Scandal's' First Lady

13 December 2012 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

When Bellamy Young was on Broadway, her mother attended 17 times. Young, who has more of a Southern drawl than her character, first lady Mellie Grant on ABC's Thursday drama, "Scandal," explains.

"It wasn't even to watch the whole show," she tells Zap2it. "She would listen to people talk about her daughter."

Her mom didn't push her on the stage but created a routine for Young's debut, at age 5, for a youth jamboree. She sang a Shirley Temple song.

"I started singing when I was about 3 and dancing soon after," Young says. "Mom just started looking for outlets where I could perform and availed herself of any opportunity she could in the mountains of North Carolina in the '70s."

Much as she loved singing, Young wanted to be a physicist. She was shocked when Yale accepted her.

"I thought they were just being polite," she recalls of being accepted into the Ivy League. »

Anne Hathaway's next movie is "Les Miserables," but the guess here is she's the opposite of that right now -- because she got married Saturday (Sept. 29).

Hathaway and Adam Shulman were married Saturday evening in Big Sur, Calif., Celebuzz reports. The ceremony was held at a private residence in front of about 180 guests. Hathaway wore a custom-designed dress by Valentino.

Hathaway and Shulman, an actor ("American Dreams") and jewelry designer, began dating in 2008 and got engaged last November.

Hathaway is coming off "The Dark Knight Rises" and will next be seen in "Les Miserables," which hits theaters in December. »

'Sons of Anarchy's' Johnny Lewis dies in bizarre double death

27 September 2012 7:03 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Actor Johnny Lewis, best known for playing prospect Kip "Half-Sack" Epps on FX drama "Sons of Anarchy" for two seasons, has died in Los Angeles in a bizarre incident, reports TMZ.

Law enforcement sources say the Los Angeles police found 28-year-old Lewis' body in a driveway of a home and the home's owner, an 81-year-old woman, was found dead inside, the victim of a homicide.

Neighbors say they heard the woman screaming, then saw a man outside her home attack two people with a piece of wood, before climbing onto the roof.

'Pitch Perfect' Review: The Pros And Cons Of The A Capella Comedy

25 September 2012 11:29 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's nothing better than when a movie surprises you, and "Pitch Perfect," the giddy-good new competitive a cappella movie, is one of the year's biggest and best surprises. It might not seem like it, but "Pitch Perfect," with its nifty "Bring It On"-meets-"Glee" set-up, could be a sleeper hit for Universal. We will now run down the pitchy highs and baritone lows of "Pitch Perfect," which hits theaters next Friday, October 5. Pro: The movie's general "attitude" Our central character (played winningly by Anna Kendrick, from "Twilight" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World") is a moody aspiring deejay with a cutting wit, and the movie has a prickly edge that nicely compliments its squeaky-clean subject matter. Its roots are in John Hughes coming-of-age comedies and the aforementioned "Bring It On," but it errs on the side of borderline abrasiveness every time, and that, for once, is a very, very good thing. »
