Synopsis

The story of the first woman ever elected to lead a Muslim state set against the back story of one of the world’s most strategically important countries—Pakistan—the Muslim world’s sole nuclear power, and the epicenter of the international War on Terror. As the film makes clear, Benazir Bhutto’s life and reign of power were marked by contradictions and questions as she wrestled from her first minute in office, with a male-dominated society and an entrenched military establishment leading up to her final act of courage that resulted in her unsolved murder at age 54.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for June 7th, 2011

June 7th, 2011

The summer is usually a really weak time for home market releases, but this week is amazing. Not only are there two $100 million hits coming out on DVD / Blu-ray this week, but there are also half-a-dozen TV on DVD releases, a few limited releases, direct-to-DVD releases, and catalog titles, many of which are worth picking up, or even contenders for Pick of the Week. I tried to narrow the list of contenders down to one, but I couldn't do it. In the end I went with Leverage: Season Three on DVD and True Grit on Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack as co-winners of the Pick of the Week. More...

Featured DVD Review: Bhutto

June 1st, 2011

Bhutto is a documentary about the of life of Benazir Bhutto. The film earned very strong reviews, but like most films in the genre, it struggled to find an audience theatrically. Now that it has hit the home market, will it find more success? More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for May 10th, 2011

May 9th, 2011

While summer is the busiest time of year at the box office, it's the weakest time of year on the home market. That said, this week isn't bad with a few high profile releases. Unfortunately for me, I'm still waiting on the screeners for several of these. As far as the best of the best is concerned, there are a few contenders for Pick of the Week, including the pair of Doctor Who releases. But in the end I went with The Illusionist on Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack. More...

Black Swan Looking Bright on the Per Theater Chart

December 7th, 2010

Black Swan beat all expectations during its opening; in fact, it broke records for Fox Searchlight earning an average of $80,212 in 18 theaters. This bodes well for its expansion this Friday. Last week's winner, The King's Speech, earned a very strong second place with an average of $54,086 in six theaters. I Love You, Phillip Morris and All Good Things opened with nearly identical averages of $18,753 and $18,586 respectively. The Salvation Poem reached the $10,000 mark with an average of $13,124 in two theaters, which is unexpected. More...

No Swan Song for Limited Releases

December 3rd, 2010

There's another eclectic mix of limited releases on this week's list, including a film that could be bound for Oscar glory, another that has been delayed many times in the past, a Christmas film, two Christmas films if you include the re-release of The Polar Express, and more. Will any find some measure of mainstream success. Let's hope so. More...
