I had a chance to catch up on a bunch of DVDs this week. The Criterion Collection's new Ugetsu is easily the big one, a long overdue classic from a greatly underrepresented filmmaker. Criterion also released a new version of Akira Kurosawa's Ran, though it was already available in a pretty good edition from Wellspring. I also looked at two concert DVDs from Music Video Distributors: The English Beat: In Concert at the Royal Festival Hall and The Human League: Live at the Dome, as well as Cronicas, Scrubs: The Complete Second Season, The Sting: Legacy Series Edition and Witness: Special Collector's Edition. I eventually tracked down a copy of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, and enjoyed it a third time -- I don't care what anyone says. Finally, I looked at a new Spanish import DVD of John Huston's The Dead (1987). It's a truly great movie, but a truly abomibable DVD.
Finally, I had the opportunity to interview George Lopez for a new comedy festival. That's about it -- until Thanksgiving.
