Mimic 3 Film Set

A triumvirate of vermin.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Assuming you’ve yet to acquire the director’s cut of Mimic that Lionsgate unleashed to Blu-ray last fall, I’d suggest opting for its new, franchise complete 3 Film Set. Only Guillermo del Toro’s 1997 original played theaters, while the two sequels went the direct-to-DVD route, on purpose.

Dark Crimes

How to kill 3,640 minutes of time wisely.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Mill Creek Entertainment’s budget pack of noir, Dark Crimes, strongly goes against the notion that films in the public domain are there because they aren't any good. That’s nonsense.

Gander at Guthrie

The making of 'Woody at 100.'

With all the Woody Guthrie coverage in today’s Gazette to commemorate the Okie folkie’s centennial, you may wish to take a peek at the mini-documentary The Making of Woody at 100.

It details Smithsonian Folkways’ efforts at compiling the new, three-disc box set, Woody at 100, which:
• came out yesterday;
• features 57 songs in total, 21 of them previously unreleased performances and six never-before-heard; and
• includes a 154-page book with essays and art galore.

Take a gander at the label’s restoration process and behind-the-scenes work:

Above Suspicion: Set 1

It’s no mystery what makes this series great.


Television series

Rod Lott
As beloved as Lynda La Plante’s long-running crime series Prime Suspect is, her Above Suspicion deserves equal adoration. It’s another example of how the British leave viewers wanting more, rather than taking the American approach of burning them out, because the first two seasons — all seven episodes between them — come collected on Acorn Media’s two-disc Set 1. This leaves two more seasons as yet unreleased, so I pray we see a Set 2 soon down the pipe.
