Some really interesting movies coming out today that I might actually pick up. I'm not always one for art films or quirky movies but these might put me in the mood for one or two.
DVD/Blu-Ray Releases for Apr. 9th
|1. Hyde Park on Hudson|
If Bill Murray acting as FDR doesn't get you intrigued then check your pulse. The story of Roosevelt's affair with his distant cousin is an interesting one. A balance between true love and an important marriage. The movie itself got mixed reviews so maybe wait for this one on Netflix.
|2. Naked Lunch|
Cronenberg directed and starring Peter Weller, read Robocop, this film is based on a novel. It's about drug addiction and giant bugs borderline on comedy and disgusting at the same time. A part of the Criterion Collection this is an interesting film worth checking out.
|3. Gate of Hell|
Another Criterion Collection pick now available which won a few Academy Awards. A story about a warrior who falls in love for a married woman. His love becomes borderline obsessive and it's pretty awesome that this film got remastered and released like this.
The 5th and final season of this pre-King Arthur Merlin is out for your enjoyment. I never got into this show but a long time ago remember a mini-series of the same lore. Despite the Merlin interest I'd rather reread The Once and Future King again.
