  • There Will Be Blood - Blu-ray Disc

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Feb 2, 2010

    Writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson steps outside his contemporary world of dysfunctional Angelenos to explore a very different dysfunctional man -- an oil pioneer whose trailblazing spirit is equaled only by his murderous ambition. There Will Be Blood is Anderson's loose adaptation of the novel Oil! by Upton Sinclair, and it focuses its attentions on Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis), a miner who happens upon black gold during a disastrous excavation that ends in a broken leg. Pulling himself up from the bowels of the earth, both literally and metaphorically, Plainview embarks on a systematic and steadfast approach to mastering the oil business. Using plain-spoken and straightforward language, Plainview launches a campaign to convince small-town property owners they should let him drill their land. Without him, they won't have the equipment to access the profit beneath their feet. He builds an empire this way -- and gradually becomes obsessed with the intrinsic value of power, growing increasingly irascible and paranoid in the process. Plainview meets his match in Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), a teenage preacher in the small California town of Little Boston, whose brother tipped Plainview off to the town's plentiful supply of untapped oil. To fully reap the benefits of the land, Plainview must suffer the opposing whims of this "prophet," whose legitimacy is questionable at best. And it's unclear if either man is prepared to pay the humiliating price the other wants to exact. There Will Be Blood features an anachronistic soundtrack by Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, and it was shot in the same town where the James Dean epic Giant was filmed. ~ Derek Armstrong, All Movie Guide

Setting a time bomb to destroy Walter's newest invention, an underwater sounding device, Phyllis decides to literally kill two birds with one stone by knocking out Phyllis and leaving her to die in the explosion. Fortunately, Phyllis escapes in the nick of time; unfortunately, she is subsequently charged with Laura's murder. Attorney Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) relies upon an elaborate (and expensive) courtroom demonstration to save Phyllis from the gas chamber. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Difficult Detour Constuction engineer Pete Mallory (Jeff York) is surprised when work on a new road is suddenly halted by a restraining order. It seems that Mallory's crew has unwittingly set up shop on private property, and that blame for this "error" falls upon the shoulders of dishonest developer Stuart Benton (Jason Evers), who plans to build a vacation resort where the road should be. Not long after confronting Benton, Mallory is charged with the man's murder--and it is up to Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) to burrow to the bottom of the situation and dig up the real killer. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Torrid Tapestry Framed for setting fire to a warehouse containing the famous Nathan Claver art collection, Claude Demay (Robert H. Harris) is released from prison after six years. With vengenace on his mind, Claude plans to use a forgery of a "lost" Panamaker tapestry to prove that Leonard Voss (John Holland) is the real culprit, and that the Claver collection, allegedly destroyed in the fire, still exists. Unfortunately, Voss is murdered, and it looks like Claude is going to be railroaded back behind bars for keeps unless Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) can prove him innocent. Veteran movie leading man Conrad Nagel appears as a dapper art connoisseur, who may know more than he is letting on. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Blind Man's Bluff A man wearing dark glasses steals a valuable necklace from the showroom window of a jewelry store--then returns the item and walks away. It turns out that this is a mere "dress rehearsal" for an actual robbery planned by store employee Karl Addison (John Conte), who intends to use the fact that an upcoming operation will render him temporarily blind as his alibi. Alas, things go terribly wrong, and Addison is killed. Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) enters the scene when his client James Kincannon (Jack Ging) is charged with Addison's murder. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Angry Dead Man Eve Nesbitt (Gloria Talbott) contacts Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) to determine the progress of the insurance settlement related to the drowning death of her husband Willard (Les Tremayne). As it happens, however, Willard is only pretending to be dead so that Eve can collect on the policy's "double-indemnity" clause. But when his business partner Lloyd Castle (Edward Binns) cheats Eve out of her share of a gold mine, Willard emerges from hiding--only to be bumped off for real. Accused of murdering her husband, Eve once again puts her fate in Perry's hands. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Misguided Missile Once again, Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) is called upon to defend an old war buddy on a murder charge. This time around, his client is Major Jerry Reynolds (Robert Rockwell), who is also the target of an investigation at Vandenberg Air Force Base concerning the mysterious crashes of several guided missiles. The murder victim was Captain Caldwell (Simon Oakland), who as chief investigator seemed to have a personal vendetta against Maj. Reynolds. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Guilty Clients Accompanied by her tempestuous cousin Concepcion (Faith Domergue), Lola Bronson (Lisa Gaye) breezes into LA from Argentina to finalize her divorce from her husband, aircraft designer Jeff Bronson (Lisa Gaye). But when she suspects Bill Ryder (played by singer Guy Mitchell) of deliberately sabotaging Jeff's business, Lola rises to her ex-husband's defense and tries to extract a confession from Ryder--at gunpoint. Ultimately, Perry Mason must defend both of the battling Bronsons on a charge of murdering Ryder. This is the final episode of Perry Mason's fourth season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Barefaced Witness Summoned to a small California mountain community by his client Iris McKay (Enid James), detective Paul Drake (William Hopper) is prompty arrested for the crime of being clean-shaven; it seems that it is "Pioneer Week", and every male in town is required to wear a false beard! Once this matter is cleared up, Paul gets down to business, attempting to locate nearly $34,000 that had been embezzled from the local bank by its former president Fred Swan (Russ Conway), who has returned to town after being released from prison. Paul ultimately finds the money--and also Swan's dead body. Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) arrives on the scene to defend poor Iris on a murder charge. Watch for a pre-Batman Adam West in the supporting cast. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Cowardly Lion When a baby gorilla named Toto is stolen from a zoo, curator Tony Osgood (Fred Beir) begins questioning his employees. One of them, a visiting dentist named Dr. Braun (Leslie Bradley), accuses Tony's girlfriend Hilde (Carol Rossen) of stealing Toto. Not long afterward, Braun is found dead in the lion's cage--and once it is determined that lion didn't do it (hence the episode's title), suspicion immediately falls upon Tony. In his efforts to mount Tony's defense, Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) unearths several unsavory secrets, among them the fact that the dead man was a bigamist--and that there's a drug-smuggling ring at the center of all the intrigue. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Violent Vest Nearly bankrupt because of his wife's gambling debts, ad executive Herman Albright (Erik Rhodes) tries to forget his problems by hitting on fashion model Grace Frye (Myrna Fahey). Angry and humiliated, Grace consults Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) in an effort to break her contract with Albright's agency. As a result, Mason is on hand to defend Grace on a charge of murdering Albright--who actually may have been a victim of mistaken identity rather than revenge. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Duplicate Daughter Carter Gilman (Walter Kinsella) abruptly vanishes from his home while he is having breakfast with his daughter Muriell (Kaye Elhardt). Investigating Gilman's disappearance, Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) finds evidence of a struggle in the man's workshop. He also finds a great deal of money--and before long a greater deal of money, specifically two million dollars, will enter into the proceedings, along with such diverse elements as blackmail and false identities. Ultimately, Perry must defend Gilman on a charge of murder. This episode is based on a 1960 novel by Perry Mason creator Erle Stanley Gardner. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Grumbling Grandfather Wealthy J.J. Gideon (Otto Kruger) disapproves of the romance between his grandson David (Karl Held) and David's secretary Dorine (Patricia Barry). As it happens, Gideon has good reason to be upset: Dorine is a duplicitous golddigger who swindles David out of $10,000, claiming that she needs it to get her husband Tony out of her life. Pretty soon, Tony is out of his own life as well--and David, who was seen fighting with Tony just before the man's death, is charged with murder. Evidently Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) takes quite a shine to David while preparing his defense; during the series' fifth season, David Gideon would return on a semi-regular basis as Perry's new legal assistant. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
