In 1987, Director Joe Dante took Dennis Quaid on a Fantastic Voyage inside Martin Short in INNERSPACE, a films that masterfully mixes comedy, action and fantasy into a package that succeeds on all levels – with an excellent score by frequent Dante collaborator, composer Jerry Goldsmith as the cherry on top this delicious cinematic sundae. A scene where Short’s mild-mannered Jack Putter transforms into “The Cowboy” (played by Robert Picardo) is a sight to behold!

The film went on to win the 1987 Academy Award for Best Visual Effects (Dennis Muren, Bill George, Harley Jessup and Kenneth Smith) and this week gets a much desired Blu-ray Disc upgrade courtesy of Warner Home Video.

With a DTS HD Master Audio 5.1 sound mix, the special features on this disc include an audio commentary by Director Joe Dante, Producer Michael Finnell, Effects Supervisor Dennis Muren and Actors Kevin McCarthy and Robert Picardo (also regulars in Joe Dante films) as well as the theatrical trailer.

Film Noir in High Def as well as a Criterion Collection release, what more can a film lover ask for?

Director Jules Dassin’s Noir Thriller starring Richard Widmark attempting to hatch a get-rich-quick scheme with the usual disastrous results (it’s Film Noir after all) gets a Blu-ray upgrade as well as a new DVD release.

Along with a new 4K Digital Restoration, the special features include the complete British version of the film (101 minutes running time), an audio commentary by scholar Glenn Erickson, a 2005 interview as well as excerpts from a 1972 Television interview with Jules Dassin, an essay by critic Paul Arthur, a comparison of the score for the American and British versions of the film and the theatrical trailer.
