We need your help.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

The Venture Bros., Oldboy

New DVD/VOD Tuesday, March 4


The Venture Bros - WARNER BROS.
  • Warner Bros.
  • The Venture Bros

The Venture Bros.: Season 5
The fifth season of The Greatest Animated Series of All Time consists of only eight episodes, but also “A Very Venture Halloween” and “The Shallow Gravy Story” as bonus features—kind of evens out. All this, and “Spanakopita!” (Warner Bros.)

A wrongly imprisoned man (Josh Brolin) spends 20 years plotting his revenge against The Stranger; ultraviolence (yay!), incest (ew!) and a wholly unsatisfying remake of the 2003 Korean cult classic ensue. A Spike Lee Film, not Joint. (FilmDistrict)

Big Bad Wolf
An abusive stepfather (Charlie O’Connell) hunts down his three teen stepdaughters, who’ve run away with the drug money he was going to use to retire in Mexico with his mistress. Yes, it is a dark take on The Three Little Pigs—how’d you guess? (Kino)

Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor
The Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) rush to save the universe, avert a new Time War and get all timey-wimey-weepy in the holiday-ish 800th(!) episode that introduces the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi). (Warner Bros.)

Mexican Sunrise
A south-of-the-border bachelor party goes bad when a local drug kingpin (Armand Assante!) takes the bros hostage in order to collect a debt—imagine Very Bad Things with more strippers and tequila. Based on a true story, as far as you know. (Maverick)
