New DVD Releases: July 5, 2005

30 Miles (2004)
Lawrence "Freddie Boom-Boom Washington" Hilton-Jacobs stops to help a drifter and wacky adventures ensure. No word on whether Epstein has a cameo.

5 Children and It (2004)
Kenneth Branagh and Zoe Wanamaker bring this kiddie classic to life. It has some neat special effects if you need something new to test out your home theater.

Alien 3000 (2004)
Also known as "Unseen Evil 2" or "how to waste 96 minutes of your life." If you're still not convinced, it has Lorenzo Lamas and Priscilla Barnes to test your limits.

Born to Kill (1947)
Great film noir starring Claire Trevor and Lawrence Tierney.

Bride & Prejudice (2004)   |   Filmfodder Review
A widely hailed Western-style Bollywood musical inspired by Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

Clash by Night (1952)
Another classic film noir flick with Barbara Stanwyck and Marilyn Monroe, directed by Fritz Lang, who brought us the classic sci-fi "Metropolis."

Crossfire (1947)
Robert Young and Robert Mitchum star in this 1947 film noir/Best Picture nominee.

Dillinger (1945)
Lawrence Tierney stars as the title character who went from punk to Public Enemy Number One.

Fantastic Four - The Complete Animated Series (1994)   |   Filmfodder Spotlight Page
While you are high on adrenaline from seeing the big-budget movie out now, maybe you'll want to cough up an extra 50 bucks for a taste of the 'toons.

Forever Lulu (1987)
Probably not at the top of Alec Baldwin's resume, this spoof also includes Debbie "Blondie" Harry and Dr. Ruth.

Georgy Girl (1966)
It's the swinging '60s, with James Mason, Lynn Redgrave and Alan Bates.

Hexed (1993)
Arye Gross stars in this alternative that makes us wish "Soul Man 2" has gotten the greenlight.

Hide and Seek (2005)   |   Filmfodder Review
Suddenly Dakota Fanning is popping up everywhere. Sadly, so is Robert De Niro. It's OK to take a break Bobby D!

In My Country (2005)
This is the pick of the week, which isn't necessarily a good thing. This movie is no "Hotel Rwanda," but it tackles another grim chapter in African history. Samuel L. Jackson and Juliette Binoche don't hurt either.

Land of Silence and Darkness (1971)
Werner Herzog's documentary about a deaf and blind woman and her work with others with the same affliction.

Monk - Season Three (2004)
Tony Shaloub isn't exactly Kojak, but he does a great job as this obsessive-compulsive gumshoe.

Nadine (1987)
Remember that classic teaming of Jeff Bridges and Kim Basinger? Neither do we, but apparently someone wanted it on DVD.

The Narrow Margin (1952)
Pack your bags. Charles McGraw is transporting a gangster's moll to testify and you're invited for the ride.

National Lampoon's Going the Distance (2004)
National Lampoon will just put their name on anything these days.

Point Blank (1967)
Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson and Carroll O'Connor. Who cares what the movie is about -- they don't make casts like that anymore!

Prozac Nation (2003)   |   Filmfodder Review
It seems like people have been going out of their way so that you won't see this movie that went straight to cable. Apparently a decent cast, including Christina Ricci and Jessica Lange, couldn't save the script based on Elizabeth Wurtzel's novel.

Shogun's Shadow (1989)
It has nothing to do with the Richard Chamberlain miniseries, but Sonny Chiba will be doing a lot of kung fu fighting.

Strange Bedfellows (2004)
Hey Paul Hogan did work again -- sadly.
