Running On Empty

Warner Archive

The Warner Archive Collection is WB’s label for “manufactured on demand” aka MOD discs — DVDs that are essentially printed to order, burned instead of stamped from a mold like the ones you’re used to buying in stores. The discs are manufactured using the best source materials available and they’re strictly no-frills affairs, so the quality varies between releases, but they’re never less than perfectly acceptable. And remember, in many cases this may be the only opportunity to own these titles on DVD. We took a look at six of their new releases, and they run the gamut across the years and the genres. Three of the films — Joe’s Apartment, The Man With Two Brains and Running on Empty — are presented for the first time on DVD in the widescreen format. The remaining three are lesser known titles — Bad Moon, Wicked Wicked and The Yakuza — but each feature at least an element or two to make them worth a watch.

Sidney Lumet was a master moviemaker in every sense of the word. Take a look at your all-time top ten, and he’s mostly likely got at least one spot on it. Serpico, Network (my personal #2), Dog Day Afternoon, Long Day’s Journey Into Night and a list that continues (and logic-defyingly includes The Wiz) until the paper runs out. Maybe you’d like to experience more movies by the man, or maybe you’d like to introduce yourself to him after his unfortunate passing. Maybe your goal is to post up on the couch and watch Lumet movies all day. Well, you can, and we’ll be right there with you. Here are just 7 of his movies that you can watch immediately through Netflix.
