New on DVD and Blu-Ray

This week sees Criterion opening the floodgates for streaming titles with its release of Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War. Would’ve probably preferred a Blu-Ray of Other Side of the Wind before either this or Roma, but I probably won’t be satisfied until Criterion gives me a hard copy of the Stories, both (New and Selected) and Marriage. They’re also releasing Jean-Jacques Beineix’s Betty Blue, which hopefully opens the floodgates for a release of Beineix’s Diva as well. Elsewhere, the Warner Archive Collection is upgrading Vincente Minnelli’s The Bad and the Beautiful, confusingly a year and a half after releasing its kinda-sorta sequel Two Weeks in Another Town. Kino’s got out several Alain Delon thrillers, including Jean-Pierre Melville’s swan song Un Flic. Mill Creek hilariously put its chips on the Charlie’s Angels movie not being a catastrophic bomb, judging by their complete series Blu-Ray for the original show. Universal is finally giving a standalone Blu-Ray to the Scarface that wasn’t made by cokeheads. And Sony offers us two early-21st century gems that you probably haven’t thought about in awhile, 3000 Miles to Graceland and The Whole Nine Yards. We may never see the lost Magnificent Ambersons footage, but hey, we got the Elvis impersonators heist movie in HD.
