This time, it’s the Wachowski’s debut feature Bound getting the Arrow Video Blu-ray treatment. Largely ignored on its release, but has since become a cult classic, Bound is an excellent slice of 90s neo-noir.
The Expendables franchise is wholly clued up on everything that everyone knows and loves about 1980s over the top, absurd pseudo-realistic bombastic action where the main difference between the good guys and bad guys is that the good guys manage to not get killed and have all the best puns and zingers.
Documentary filmmaker Todd Douglas Miller’s Dinosaur 13 focuses on what became a David and Goliath legal battle between enthusiastic South Dakota palaeontologists and big government.
William O’Brien’s second feature is another foray into the same theme of bad scientists being irresponsible with human genetics that 2006’s Isolation was hung around. This time John Lynch (think a sort of cut-price brooding Northern Irish Scott Bakula) stars as a soldier of fortune, leading a rag tag mob of very unlikely mercenaries, as they raid the secret laboratories of an ex-Soviet research facility.
