DVD Releases for January 20, 2009 - Part I

January 20th, 2009

A terrible week for first run releases. There are five such releases on this week's list, but they has a combined haul of around $130 million, and nearly $100 million of that came from two films. With no big releases, we had to look other places for the DVD Pick of the Week. Repo! The Genetic Opera on Blu-ray is a clear contender for that title, but its lack of mass appeal is troublesome. This American Life - Season Two is a safer pick, but it is a Borders Exclusive release. Regardless of these issues, both releases are worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week. Despite the weakness at the top, there are still more than enough total releases to cause this column to stretch into two parts. The second part can be found here. More...

It's War Out There on the Per Theater Chart

May 28th, 2008

The $10,000 club was a little more crowded than expected with a few surprise entries, but there was no surprise on top. Not only did Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull top the overall box office chart, it also came in first place on the per theater average chart with $23,507 over the three-day weekend, and nearly $30,000 over four. The Edge of Heaven opened with $18,593 in one theater, which is made even more impressive since it opened on a Wednesday. War, Inc. opened to weak reviews, but managed a surprisingly strong per theater average of $17,668. The final film in the $10,000 club was A Jihad for Love with $10,519 over three days and $17,284 including its box office over Wednesday and Thursday. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of May 23, 2008

May 24th, 2008

Another week with just one massive release dominating the box office. This time around it is Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which as expected, has the best site this week. However, the best of the week is still not enough to justify giving it the Weekly Website Award. More...

Limited Releases go Postal

May 23rd, 2008

Only half a dozen films on this week's list, and only half of those are earning good reviews, and none seem likely to expand beyond their limited beginnings. That said, we've yet to have a sleeper hit this year, and maybe one of these movies will surprise. More...
