DVD Releases for September 30, 2008

September 30th, 2008

A much smaller list of films on this week's list. How small? It fit on one page. This is mainly for two reasons. One, I didn't get to the backlog of late arrivals. I hope to get a big chunk of them done for next week, but I have ten new releases to get through first. Secondly, the first of the summer monster hits came out this week, and Iron Man scared away a lot of the competition. Speaking of competition, there was quite a race for the DVD Pick of the Week with the Two-Disc Collector's Edition or Blu-ray release of Iron Man near the top of the list. As was the Judd Apatow Unrated Comedy Collection, also on Blu-ray. I couldn't decide which was better, so I'm giving the title of DVD Pick of the Week to both. Other contenders were Sports Night - The Complete Series 10th Anniversary Edition and Taxi to the Dark Side - Buy from Amazon, and Can't Hardly Wait, although the last one comes with a "Guilty Pleasure" warning.

Sexy Start on the Per Theater Chart

June 3rd, 2008

The overall box office leader, Sex and the City, was also the leader on the Per Theater Chart with $17,305. Second place went to Savage Grace, which earned an average of $11,156 in two theaters. Last week's winner, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, snagged third place this weekend with and average of $10,496. On the other hand, War, Inc. just missed the $10,000 by the tiniest of tiny margins at $9,985. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of May 30, 2008

May 31st, 2008

There were three sites on this week's list that caught my eye. These included a site with more extras than regular features, a site with an interactive experience, and a site with a DVD quality featurette. However, each site failed to live up to the level needed to be an award worthy site. More...

The Way of the Limited Releases

May 30th, 2008

It's summertime. We should be seeing a lot more potential sleeper hits coming out in limited release. This week there is one such film, The Foot Fist Way, but its reviews don't suggest it will be a massive hit. It does have the best shot at box office success out of all of the film on this week's list, but it will still be an uphill climb. More...
