DVD and Blu-ray Releases for April 5th, 2011

April 5th, 2011

It's Tron week with at least seven releases related to Tron and Tron: Legacy. This appears to have scared away the competition, because outside of those releases, there's not much of a selection. Actually, there are three $100 million hits coming out this week; however, one doesn't come out till Friday, so I'll likely deal with it next week after the screener arrives, and the other is so bad it's best to pretend it doesn't exist. Those two films are clearly the Pick of the Week, but depending on where you buy your DVDs, the Combo Pack may or may nor be less expensive than buying the two films separately, so double-check before you buy.

Featured Blu-ray Review: A.I.: Artificial Intelligence

April 4th, 2011

When A.I.: Artificial Intelligence was released a decade ago it was seen as a very ambitious project by Steven Spielberg. It was based on a script by Stanley Kubrick, which the legendary director had been working on for decades. It starred Haley Joel Osment, who just two years earlier had earned an Oscar nomination for The Sixth Sense. However, despite costing more than $100 million to get to theaters, it opened with less than $30 million during its debut. To put this into perspective, the week before The Fast and the Furious opened with more than $40 million. Worse still, the latter film actually had better legs and within a couple weeks, A.I. was barely in the top ten, and at the end of the month, it was all but gone from theaters. Was the film ahead of its time? Was there an issue with poor marketing? (Some were expecting a kids movie more like E.T.) Or is there something else? More...

The shaded area represents the expected performance range for a film, based on its opening weekend box office. 95% of films fall within the shaded area. If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs.
