DVD and Blu-ray Releases for March 22nd, 2011

March 21st, 2011

It's a deceptively slow week when it comes to DVD and Blu-ray releases. Have I mentioned how much I love the word, "deceptively"? It is worse than meaningless and actually reduces the amount of information given in any sentence it appears in. In this case, the first sentence could mean the week appears to be slow, but it is actually quite busy. Or it could mean the week appears busy, but is quite slow. Unfortunately, it's the latter. There are four first run releases coming out on the home market, which is more than most weeks, but all four missed expectations to one degree or another. Additionally, there's only one new release that I'm seriously considering for Pick of the Week, The Venture Bros.: Season Four on Blu-ray. In fact, there are a couple Blu-ray catalog titles that are more interesting than any of the first run releases. Leading the way there is Stand By Me, which is not only a great movie, but the Blu-ray isn't shovelware and includes Blu-ray exclusive extras like a Picture-in-Picture track. So which release is the Pick of the Week? I can't decide, so let's call it a tie. More...

Sinfully Good

August 27th, 2005

It's no surprise that Sin City led the rental market this weekend, but it was a little surprising that it was the top seller as well. During its opening week the film earned $8.61 million in DVD rentals and $480,000 in VHS rentals for a grand total of $9.09 million, which is lower than I would have thought. More...

Who Stays on Top Because New Releases Can't Compete

August 20th, 2005

Guess Who was able to repeat as the champion on the home market thanks in part to the weak competition, but also due to the miniscule 8% drop-off from its opening week numbers. The film earned $8.01 million in DVD rentals, $630,000 in VHS rentals for a combined total of $8.64 million this week, which lifted its two-week total to $18.23 million. More...

DVD Releases for August 9, 2005

August 8th, 2005

I do believe last week was the first week that a Foreign Language film was selected as the DVD Pick of the Week, this week it's two in a row as Kung Fu Hustle - Buy from Amazon takes that coveted prize. Also scoring a DVD Pick of the Week rating is The Muppet Show - Season One - Special Edition - Buy from Amazon, which is a must have for fans of Jim Henson's particular brand of genius. More...

Charlie Appeals to the Sweet-tooth in its International Debut

July 24th, 2005

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory opened in three French speaking markets over the weekend and while it didn't finish first, it still had a great start. In France the film earned $3,741,793 in 670 theaters for the best per theater average in the top ten. The result was similar in Belgium ($250,000) and Switzerland ($190,000), giving the film $4.2 million for the weekend. More...

Massive Turnout for Presidents' Weekend

February 22nd, 2005

The long weekend helped boost ticket sales to higher than expected levels, with almost every film meeting or exceeding predictions. Percentage-wise, the three-day weekend was up 10.9% from last weekend and more than 40% from last year. However, this weekend last year was not Presidents' Day Weekend and thus that comparison is misleading. Comparing 2005 Presidents Day Weekend to 2004 and the results are still very strong, just not overwhelmingly so; 3-day 2005 was up 7.0% and 8.4% for the 4-day weekend. Year to date, 2005 is up 13.4% on 2004, with $1.121 billion. However, 2004 had a slow start and didn't really take off until late February. More...

Tight Presidential Race

February 18th, 2005

Presidents' Day Long Weekend isn't the busiest holiday of the year, but it should give a boost to the box office nonetheless. Looking at the reviews of the three new releases, this weekend is going to need a boost. More...

2005 Preview: February

February 1st, 2005

Just one look at February and it feels like it's a worse month than January was. Maybe it's the fact that January was stronger than expected so February's releases look weaker by comparison. Or maybe it's the lack of a massive hit like we had last year. Regardless of the reason, there's little to be enthusiastic about this month. More...
