THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* Altitude, comics artist Kaare Andrews' debut movie is like Cthulu in the clouds. A confined-space horror movie with lots of tension.
* Frank Sinatra: Concert Collection, 14 hours of vintage television specials from the Chairman of the Board.
* Leonard Cohen's Lonesome Heroes, an academic documentary mapping out the troubadour's influences.
* Mad About You: The Complete Fifth Season, the year of the Buchman pregnancy. Another cycle of shows from one of my favorite sitcoms.
* The Other Side of Paradise, an impressive indie romance that takes its heart out on the road.
* Sherlock: Season One, the clever and inventive BBC modernization of the legendary detective.
Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him)?, an interesting documentary about the unique singer that has a lot of good stuff, but maybe not enough to answer it's own titular question.
Current Soundtrack: Rihanna, Loud
