DVD Playhouse: May 2011
Blow Out (Criterion) Brian De Palma’s greatest Hitchcock homage, with a dash of Antonioni thrown in for good measure. John Travolta gives one of his best turns as a sound-effects engineer who unwittingly records a political assassination, then finds himself hunted by a ruthless hitman (John Lithgow, a memorably creepy psycho) after saving the life of the kindly, albeit dim-witted call girl (Nancy Allen, excellent) who was with the deceased. Terrific blend of suspense and very black humor, perhaps De Palma’s finest hour as an auteur. Beautifully shot by Vilmos Zsigmond. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Interviews with De Palma, Allen, cameraman Garrett Brown; Photo gallery; De Palma’s 1967 feature Murder a la Mod; Trailer. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS-hd 2.0 surround.

For all the British television that makes some effort to cross the pond, some shows simply can't be reworked for American audiences. Luckily, most of them make it to us anyway, and the latest, brilliant effort to come by way of PBS (and of course, DVD) is Doc Martin.
Starring the by now legendary Martin Clunes, who has been a part of so many amazing British series that it boggles the mind, Doc Martin is the story of a star surgeon who suddenly develops a blood phobia. With little choice in his career path, he takes the job of Gp for the small village of Portwenn, where he spent much time as a young lad with his aunt (Stephanie Cole).
Hoping that the rural doctor life will consist largely of colds and the odd bruise, Martin hopes that with blood at a minimum he can overcome his problem and return to surgery. »

Martin Clunes is in a lot of British TV. The Doc Martin Collection is the third set that I've gotten from Acorn Media that stars the British actor (Dirty Tricks and Demob are the other two). The great thing about Clunes, though, is his uncanny ability to change himself. While he played conniving in Tricks and deadpan in Demob, Doc Martin sees him playing a new brand of funny character: sarcastic.

Acorn Media will release a collection of all four seasons of the popular British comedy-drama TV show Doc Martin on DVD on April 26.
The Doc Martin Collection: Series 1-4 DVD will carry a list price of $99.99.
Martin Clunes (Shakespeare in Love) stars in the series as a misanthropic, socially maladjusted doctor forced to relocate to rustic Cornish seaside village, where he immediately clashes with the town’s eccentric citizens.

Pixar revealed a few concept art for “Brave” to Entertainment Weekly. “Brave” will be Pixar’s first animation for the company with a female protagonist and a first film co-directed by a woman. Entertainment Weekly also reported actress Reese Witherspoon (“Walk the Line,” “Legally Blonde”) will no longer voice the main heroine, Scottish princess Merida, due to scheduling conflicts.

Since Chapman initiated the project, Pixar decided to Chapman and Andrews as co-directors of the project. The film will also be voiced by Emma Thompson (“Sense and Sensibility, »
