Sometimes, it’s nice to settle in with an old friend instead of waiting to be surprised/disappointed by something new. Such is the case of several current DVD/Blu-ray releases. Out just now are several films that may be a bit long in the tooth, but are worth of another look. Despite being somewhat dated, these flicks hold up well and a couple will always be “must see” viewing for real film fans.
- The Green Mile: 15th Anniversary Diamond Luxe Edition: Easily one of Tom Hanks’ most stirring dramatic roles as a conflicted and empathetic prison guard.
- Forrest Gump: 20th Anniversary Diamond Luxe Edition: Another Hanks star turn as a man of modest mental means who touches and changes the lives of others.
- Natural Born Killers: 20th Anniversary Diamond Luxe Edition: Oliver Stone’s troubling masterpiece about troubled lovers who become troubling serial killers.
- Gremlins: 30th Anniversary Diamond Luxe Edition: 1984 horror/comedy film about cute little creatures who become more destructive than adorable.
