Dennis has posted his thoughts on Paramount’s Urban Cowboy: 40th Anniversary Edition, now available on Blu-ray Disc. Do give it a look.

Also, in announcement news today, our friends at Arrow Video have just revealed a nice batch of Blu-ray titles for release in September.

Among them are Kevin Smith’s Mallrats (1995), Miguel Llansó’s striking and surreal film Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway (2019), a box set of Kinji Fukasaku and Takashi Miike’s Japanese yakuza classics Graveyards of Honor (1975 and 2002), and Bernard Rose’s film business satire Ivansxtc (2002).

Fox films including Herbert Ross’s The Secret of My Success (1987) and John Badham’s The Hard Way (1991) in October, and Frank Darabont’s Buried Alive (1990) TBA for later this fall.

Finally today, a heads-up: The Criterion Channel has just kicked off a great 24-film series that looks at the Czechoslovak New Wave of the 1960s. If you’re a cinephile, it should be well worth exploring. You’ll find the details here!

That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend, friends!
