Thirst. Chan Wook-Park is a fascinating filmmaker. I have seen four of his films and they have all been wonderful, with an increasingly fascinating look and a depth to match. This new film sees a failed experiment turn a man of the cloth into a vampire. I have not yet seen it, but the footage I have seen is quite interesting. I look forward to getting my hands on this.
Kevin Smith Box Set (Clerks, Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) (Blu-ray). These films will also be available separately. I love these movies, although I am not sure how much they will benefit from HD. I mean, it is not like they are effects-laden films. Still, if you do not have them, these are fun movies.
Andy Barker, PI: The Complete Series. It is a shame that none of Andy Richter's series caught on. They have generally been quite good and Richter is a funny fellow. This one has him working as a part time investigator out of a strip mall. It did not last long. May be worth picking up.
Is Anybody There? (also Blu-ray). If you want to see an acting clinic, watch this and witness the work put in by Michael Caine. He plays a magician who moves into a group home for the elderly, where he strikes up a relationship with a young boy who is preoccupied with death. It really is quite good and deserves to be seen.
Franklyn (also Blu-ray). I remember seeing the trailer for this some time ago and really wanting to see it. It tells a story with a split narrative between modern-day London and a future city, focusing on four people on a collision course. Yes, I know that is not much, but I do not want much detail. It does star Eva Green and has a guy in a cool looking mask.
Samurai Princess. The cover for this looks pretty cool and it is from the minds behind Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police, so it has that going for it. It centers on a young woman who is the only survivor of a group of woman who are attacked and raped. She turns herself into an android to go out and have her revenge. From what I understand the story is slight but the blood is plenty.
