Amazon Says: Brace yourself for one of the 1970s greatest, creepiest, cult classics now available for the first time ever on High Definition Blu-Ray. It s a surreal psycho-thriller that broke all the rules of political correctness and lowbrow film-making as it spun the sordid tale of a black singer from the big city, Liz Wetherly (Leslie Uggams), who finds herself stranded in a backwoods redneck nightmare that makes Deliverance look like a day at Disneyland in comparison. Poor Pretty Eddie spent years existing as one of those mythical, must-see... if you can find a copy films. As copies began to make the rounds, and as more movie buffs were able to view it, reports of the movie s content focused as much on the detailed, almost art-house, approach to many of the scenes as they did on the film s obvious seediness and dark storyline. Intriguing, when you consider its directors had demonstrated no aspirations previously (or, indeed, since) to produce anything beyond good ol fashioned exploitation fare aimed at the drive-in movie crowd. Not that this movie would have disappointed anyone looking for a down and dirty grindcore film, either. When her car breaks down, Whetherly ends up stuck in a remote southern town that s been left for dead ever since they put in the interstate. She is forced to stay in a dilapidated inn that serves as the bizzaro kingdom of faded, overweight burlesque star Bertha (Shelly Winters), her much younger boy-toy and aspiring Elvis wannabe, Eddie (Michael Christian), and a cast of suitably strange townsfolk including Sheriff Orville (Slim Pickens), Keno (Ted Cassidy aka Lurch from The Addams Family and one of the great character actors of our time) and Floyd (Dub Taylor, another notable character actor). Over the years, the film also appeared on the drive-in circuit under the titles Black Vengeance and Heartbreak Motel. But whatever you want to call it, it s not a movie you will soon forget! less...

Amazon Says: This effortlessly cool crime caper, directed by Georges Franju, is a marvel of dexterous plotting and visual invention. Conceived as an homage to Louis Feuillade's 1916 cult silent serial of the same name, Judex kicks off with the mysterious kidnapping of a corrupt banker by a shadowy crime fighter (American magician Channing Pollock) and spins out into a thrillingly complex web of deceptions. Combining stylish sixties modernism with silent-cinema touches and even a few unexpected sci-fi accents, Judex is a delightful bit of pulp fiction and a testament to the art of illusion. less...

Amazon Says: In Los Angeles, advertising executive Jason (Brian Tee) suddenly finds himself abandoned at the altar by his beautiful fiancée. His family is sent into a panic and there is good reason there is an ancient family curse that mandates if he isn't married by age 30, which is only months away, he'll surely die. With a Shaman's (Margaret Cho) blessing and his best friend (Bobby Lee) advising him to find a bride in Korea, Jason travels to Seoul, Korea on a business trip where he meets Na Young (Kang Hye-jung), the girl of his dreams. After a video chat fueled online relationship, Jason proposes to Na Young and the two are set to marry in LA. But once the bride-to-be arrives in LA, Jason discovers that Na Young doesn't quite match how she appeared to be online. Will Jason stand up to family pressure and accept the girl of his dreams for all her shortcomings, at the risk of losing his own life? less...

Amazon Says: A paratroop captain (Errol Flynn) sets out with a platoon to attack a Japanese outpost in the jungle. The Americans reach their target, take out the enemy with almost balletic precision, then gear up to return home. This feels like the point when a conventional war movie would have reached its action-filled climax, but the journey has only begun. Ahead lies one of the most arduous and agonizing adventures any World War II film ever offered, brilliantly directed by that underrated old master Raoul Walsh and photographed with almost tactile realism by the great James Wong Howe. The chief rap against Objective, Burma! (of concern mainly to British observers) is that it suggests that only U.S. forces contested the Japanese in the jungles of Burma. (OK, so it's not the most accurate history lesson.) But that's small beer in view of the movie's bone-chilling portrayal of pain, sacrifice, and endurance. The jungle atmosphere is so persuasive, you'd swear it was shot on the actual locations (though in fact Walsh effectively reworked many of the same situations in Distant Drums, a sort-of Western about the Seminole War, six years later). You'll never forget the terrifying last dark night on a mountainside--or the crocodiles.... Flynn is excellent (he had given his best performance ever in Walsh's Gentleman Jim three years earlier), and he's backed by a solid cast including Henry Hull (as an aging war correspondent), James Brown, William Prince, George Tobias, and Stephen Richards (soon to change his name to Mark Stevens). Incidentally, two of the writers, Alvah Bessie and Lester Cole, were later blacklisted; see if you can spot any Commie propaganda. --Richard T. Jameson less...
