There will be a memorial service for Frank and Danse, who’ve both recently passed away, on June 23rd at 5:30 pm in Grandview Park. There’s also a Go-Fund me campaign to help out their family here if you’re interested. There's a nice post about these two here. They are missed.

We’ve just unleashed a new video of me prattling on about some movies that I hadn’t ever seen until recently. Check it out here and also for a bunch of others we've done!

New Releases!

Anything for Jackson – Cool-looking horror number about a nice Satanist couple who kidnap a pregnant woman with the hopes of putting their dead grandson’s spirit into the unborn child. Things don’t go as planned. If you can call that a plan.

Godzilla vs. Kong – For those of you who didn’t shill out $25 a couple of months ago for VOD, now you can spend a paltry $6 to watch a really big ape fight a really big lizard. Who’s your money on?

The Great War of Archimedes – In 1933 Japan a young math guy discovers a conspiracy around the building of the world’s biggest battleship.

H.P. Lovecraft’s The Deep Ones – Couple rents an Air BNB that’s surrounded by a weirdo cult and their ancient sea god/monster. I wonder if they had to pay extra for that?

I Hate Suzie Season 1 – Female celebrity’s life is going topsy-turvy after her phone is hacked and some ribald photos are unleashed. Supposed to be a really funny shoe!

Impetigore – Cool (and best named) horror film from Indonesia about a woman returning to her village to inherit a property. Is it haunted? I don’t know! I haven’t seen it yet so stop asking me! Blu Ray only.

The Reckoning – A woman is accused of being a witch. “Let’s build a bridge out of her!”. Nice-looking horror (lots of horror this week, rejoice!) from Dog Soldiers director, Neil Marshall.

Streetwise/Tiny: The Life of Erin Blackwell – Excellent, gritty doc from 1984 follows some homeless teens on the streets of Seattle. Also includes a doc later made about one of them – Tiny. Criterion release.

The Unholy – Deaf girl is visited by the Virgin Mary (good thing she was home) who mysteriously cures her. Or did she? Maybe!

Wrath of Man – Guy Ritchie teams up with Statham for another kick at the crime can. Heard this is a gooden!

Your Honour

That’s it for this week, my lovelies. Stay healthy, be nice to each other, get those jabs and keep watching!

With the light staying late longer (that make sense?) we’d thought it would be a good idea to adjust the hours of operation to fit the season. Not a big move – Black Dog will now be open until 9pm Thursday – Sunday (8pm Monday – Wednesday). We hope that this pleases you.

New Releases!

The Deuce: Season 3 – Season three of this great, gritty, sleazy slice of NY.

French Exit – Comedy/drama finds Michelle Pfieffer moving to Paris with her cat and her son after inheritance starts to run dry. Watch out for all the dog poop!

Happy New Year, Colin Burstead – Family dramatic drama from Ben Wheatley (Kill List, High Rise) finds a guy named Colin hiring a lavish country estate for his family to celebrate New Year. Things, of course, don’t go very well. Be boring of they did.

Hemingway: A Film by Ken Burns – Hemingway gets the famed Ken Burns treatment (not as painful as it sounds).

Heavy Trip – Heavy metal comedy from Finland finds a band called Impaled Rektum going to a heavy metal festival. Hilarity, I presume, ensues. This looks pretty great.

Morgue – Dude gets locked in a morgue overnight. Spooky things happen. Or do they? Probably.

Night Walk – Mickey Roarke (who, more and more, looks like an Arby's sandwich left out in the sun for a few days) stars in this prison drama set in the Arab world,

Spare Parts – An all-girl band, Ms. 45, is kidnapped, have their limbs removed and replaced with crazy weapons and forced to fight as Gladiators. Not a true story.

The Unhealer – Bullied teenager acquires some sort of superpowers that he uses for bloody revenge. Not a true story.

Vanquish – Retired Russian drug courier is forced back into action for ONE LAST JOB. Stars Morgan Freeman (or someone who vaguely looks like Morgan Freeman).

The World to Come – Nice looking romantic drama about two women finding each other in the rough-living (and loving!) upstate New York of the 1850s.

More sad news - a month or so after Frank passed, his brother Danse has followed him. Those two were fixtures on the Drive forever and will be missed. Such a sad story. We had raised money to help out Danse after Frank’s passing but could never find him to give him the donations. So we’re going to donate what we raised - $500 - to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. If you want to chip in on this go here.

New Releases!

The Columnist – Social media rears it’s ugly head (again) in this tale of a woman pushed too far. Looks like fun!

Cosmic Sin – Frank Grillo and Bruce Willis’s shiny head star in this sci-fi actioner about aliens and war and metal suits.

The Courier – Ben Cumberbatch is a cold war spy trying to end the Cuban Missile Crisis. Could most likely use some of those mystical Dr Strange shenanigans.

Earwig and the Witch – Kid named Earwig (come on parents, do better!) goes to live with a witch. Witches, witches everywhere!

The Father – Anthony Hopkins won another Oscar for his portrayal of an old fella slipping away. Much drama, I presume, ensues.

The Final Stand – Russian war film about some cadets helping to thwart the Germans from taking Moscow in the winter of 1941. Everyone knows that you don’t start a land war with Russia!

The Great Season 1 – Historical comedy/drama about a woman tossed into the Russian royal court when she marries a doofus Emperor.

The Legend of Hei – Top-notch animated tale of a goblin cat wandering the city after it’s forest home is destroyed. Where do I get me a goblin cat?!

Minari – Oscar-winning tale of a Korean family starting a farm in 1980’s Arkansas. Probably better than it sounds.

Pixie – Irish gangster comedy crime thriller. Sounds delightful!

The Vault – Dude wants to steal some legendary lost treasure from a 100 year-old vault in Spain. Go for it, dud
