Blu-ray Sales: Game of Thrones is Not Playing Around

March 8th, 2015

The top four films on this week's Blu-ray sales chart and nine of the top twenty were new releases. The number one release was Game of Thrones: Season Four, which sold 286,000 units and generated $9.98 million in sales. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 54%, which is incredible compared to the average TV on DVD release. Then again, Game of Thrones isn't the average TV show. More...

Home Market Numbers: Gone to the Dogs

March 1st, 2015

The new releases were not good, for the most part. The overall Blu-ray sales chart rose from last week, up 9.9% in terms of units and 16% in terms of sales. On the other hand, compared to last year, Blu-ray sales were down 15% in terms of units and 14% in terms of revenue. On the positive side, the DVD sales were even worse, so the overall Blu-ray share jumped up to 51%. That's an impressive figure, but before getting too excited, you have to remember that the number one selling Blu-ray, 101 Damlatians, didn't have a DVD release this week. More...

Blu-ray Sales: That's a Lot of Spots

March 1st, 2015

The Blu-ray sales chart was led by a very old new release. 101 Damlatians made its Blu-ray debut earning first place with 339,000 units / $7.69 million. This is a little lower than The Jungle Book opened with last year. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 10th, 2015

February 11th, 2015

I can't wait till the winter blockbusters start coming out, because I've run out of ways to say, "It is a slow week on the home market." without repeating myself. There are some releases that are certainly worth picking up, like the Blu-ray debut for 101 Dalmatians, but there are also releases that I would call filler on the first page of Amazon.com's list of new releases. There are a number of releases that are worth picking, including Force Majeure (DVD or Blu-ray); Laggies (DVD or Blu-ray); Nightcrawler (DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack); and Rosewater (DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack). However, the only real contender for Pick of the Week was 101 Dalmatians. More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: 101 Dalmatians

February 4th, 2015

101 Dalmatians first hit theaters more than 50 years ago. Since then, the film has been released on the home market a number of times, including in 2008, which is when I previously reviewed it. My opinion on the movie hasn't changed much, it is definitely worth owning, but is the new Blu-ray Combo Pack worth picking up for those who own the DVD? More...
