(KUTV) New DVD and Blu-ray Releases for July 30, 2013
By Ryan Michael Painter
This week sees the release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the much-improved sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, the first season of Cinemax’s violent crime thriller Banshee, the fourth season of the classic television series Star Trek: The Next Generation, the Blu-ray debut of Guillermo del Toro’s brilliant Spanish horror The Devil’s Backbone and the dark thriller Black Rock starring Kate Bosworth, Kate Aselton and Lake Bell as three campers terrorized by a group of hunters.
Fans of Warner Bros. animated DC Comic releases will want to pick up Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.
If The Devil’s Backbone doesn’t suffice horror fanatics also have the quasi-zombie mayhem (think 28 Days Later) of the no-budget The Demented to consider.
French cinema and art house fans also have the Cohen Media Groups release of Andre Techine’s 1979 adaptation of The Bronte Sisters starring Isabelle Adjani, Marie-France Pisier and the irresistible Isabelle Huppert.
Alternative cinema fans have Cloudburst, the latest release from Thom Fitzgerald (3 Needles), starring Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker as a couple who escape their nursing home in hopes of driving to Canada where they can be legally married.
