It's the week of the special edition, with roughly 409 such releases on the list (410 if you count the concurrent releases for X-Men: The Last Stand). Of these, most are completely skippable, but a few are actually worth the upgrade. When it comes to digging through the clutter and finding the best of the best there were a few contenders including the blockbusters X-Men: The Last Stand - Collector's Edition, but the likelihood of a bigger special edition coming out sooner than later prevented it from winning. Thank You for Smoking - Buy from Amazon was also highly rated, but in the end I went with Humphrey Bogart - The Signature Collection - Volume 2. Meanwhile, for fellow Canadians, it is your patriotic duty to pick up Corner Gas - Season 3 tomorrow.
Changing Times led the way on the per theatre charts this weekend.
The French film scored $31,702 in its lone theatre.
Second place went to Heading South, which saw its per theatre average decline by just 22% to $16,798.
Both Gabrielle and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest were very close behind with $15,338 and $15,085 respectively while no other film made it into the $10,000 club.
There are a number of limited releases coming out this week that I've had my eye on. However, while my anticipation was high, their Tomatometer ratings are all quite low. Fortunately, there are a couple of highly rated French
films to pick up the slack in that regard.
It's a good week for website with what could be the last big hit of the year launching its flash site. That movie, Miami Vice
, and its Official Site
, is the winner of the Weekly Website Award.
It seems a lot of people are starting their holidays early, but not this column as it's the busiest it's been in more than a month. Including in this list are a few newly released teaser trailers and a handful of flash sites, most of which are worth checking out. But the best of the best is the Running With Scissors
- Official Site
Just an average week with You, Me and Dupree
- Official Site
taking the prize for the best of the week.
