On DVD This Week: Life and More

by | June 19, 2017 | Comments

It’s a pretty thin week for new DVDs — the only notable brand new release is a sci-fi thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds — but there are some… interesting choices if you’re looking for a re-release of an older film. Read on for the full list.

Life (2017) 67%

Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds star in this sci-fi thriller about a team of ISS astronauts who discover an extraterrestrial organism in space and find out it’s more intelligent than they expected. It comes with deleted scenes and making-of featurettes on shooting in zero G, the creature design, and the film’s themes.

Also Available This Week:

  • From Criterion, we have Marcel Pagnol’s classic Marseille trilogy from the 1930s, developed from Pagnol’s stage plays, which alternately tells the generation-spanning tales of a busboy who dreams of a sailor’s life (Marius, 1931, 100 percent), the woman who becomes his wife (Fanny, 1932), and his father, who owns the seaside bar where he works (César, 1936, 100 percent).
  • Next, from Arrow, we have a new edition of The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970, 91 percent), the feature debut of Italian giallo legend Dario Argento (and scored by Ennio Morricone) that centers on a writer who thinks he may hold the key to a police investigation after he witnesses a brutal attack on a woman one night.
  • Moonstruck screenwriter John Patrick Shanley’s own directorial debut, Joe Versus the Volcano (1990, 61 percent), is probably best known as the first — and arguably quirkiest — film to pair Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan together, but the unconventional rom-com has a pretty committed cult following, and it’s available in a new Blu-ray.
  • Lastly, we have Hal Ashby’s final feature film — a crime novel adaptation from 1986 scripted by Oliver Stone and starring Jeff Bridges, Rosanna Arquette, and Andy Garcia. Sounds fairly promising, right? Pretty much nobody who saw it thought so; 8 Million Ways to Die currently sports a zero percent, but you can own it tomorrow anyway.
