  What's New on DVD/Blu-ray in August: 'Crimes of the Future,' 'Heavy Metal Parking Lot,' 'Pam & Tommy' and More New Release Wall David Cronenberg plays the hits in "Crimes of the Future" (Neon), but there's no other filmmaker today with hits like his. Viggo Mortensen and Léa Seydoux are a pair of surgery-based performance artists whose interests intersect with a sect of plastic-eaters, while bureaucrats Kristen Stewart (giving the screen's most divisive performance since Jared Leto in "House of Gucci") and Don McKellar look on in fannish amazement. If you enjoy the auteur's brand of surgical implements that look like insect exoskeletons and furniture that looks like tumors, this is your kind of movie.

Teams reportedly debating signing Stars' Jake Oettinger to offer sheet

  Teams reportedly debating signing Stars' Jake Oettinger to offer sheet The young goaltender showed this postseason that he is ready to step into the limelight as a star, posting a .954 save percentage in seven games, almost dragging the Stars past the Calgary Flames in the first round by himself. With Jason Robertson also a restricted free agent and a few other spots to fill, the Stars have a limited amount of cap flexibility to work with, which could make an Oettinger offer sheet more appealing for some teams. It doesn’t make much sense to sign a player to one without real hope that it might not be matched.
