DVD and Blu-ray Releases for May 17th, 2011

May 16th, 2011

It's kind of an odd week for DVD / Blu-ray releases. While it is a busier week than average when it comes to first run releases, none of them did well with critics and I don't think any of them will be big sellers. There are a few limited releases, TV on DVD releases, and catalogue titles that are vying to make up the difference.

Featured Blu-ray Review: Beverly Hills Cop

May 15th, 2011

Eddie Murphy owned the 1980s. We have him in sixth place on the chart for the decade, but you could easily argue he should be ranked second, or maybe even first. He was the star in every single film he was in during the 1980s, while three of the people above him where primarily known for their voice work. Dan Aykroyd earned a substantial amount of his total box office for the decade from supporting parts in movies like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom or Driving Miss Daisy. Even Harrison Ford had Star Wars to boost his overall numbers, while he was a key part of the films' success, he was not the main reason people bought tickets. Beverly Hills Cop is Murphy's biggest film, outside of voice work, and many consider it his best. But now that the film is closing in on 30 years old, does it still live up to its reputation? And if so, is the Blu-ray worth owning? 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. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
