BURYING THE EX
2014, RLJE/Image Entertainment, 89 min, USA, Dir: Joe Dante

Max (Anton Yelchin) knows things aren’t working out with Evelyn (Ashley Greene), but he dreads breaking up with such a Type-A personality. That problem is apparently solved when Evelyn is hit by a bus, though after Max finds a more compatible girlfriend (Alexandra Daddario), his ex returns as a zombie, determined to hold him to his pledges of eternal love. “An efficient zom-com … the film switches gears between genres with Dante's customary ease.” - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter.


CBGB
2013, XLrator Media, 101 min, USA, Dir: Randall Miller

Originally a “Country, BlueGrass and Blues” club, CBGB became the epicenter of the New York alternative-music scene in the mid-1970s. With a policy of booking virtually any band that played original music, club owner Hilly Kristal (portrayed in the film by Alan Rickman) opened his doors to groups like Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads, Television and others long before anyone had ever heard of punk rock or new wave. The cast includes such veterans as Bradley Whitford and Rupert Grint, but - appropriately for a film about an incubator of musicians - most of the actors in CBGB are at the beginnings of their screen careers. And need we mention the killer soundtrack?
