DVD Releases for March 17th, 2009

March 17th, 2009

This is a smaller list than it should be as there were no fewer than six DVDs on this list where I am supposed to receive a screener, but the screener is late. The next few weeks could be busy, as I attempt to catch up. In the meantime, there are a trio of serious contenders for DVD Pick of the Week, starting with Murnau, a box set that is a must have for silent movie fans, especially those who enjoy F.W.Murnau. Also up for the honor is Degrassi - The Next Generation - Season Seven, which is fast becoming one of the longest running kids shows ever. Finally, Bolt is making its debut on a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack on Sunday, and the movie is fantastic, while the Blu-ray has enough exclusives to be worth the small premium in price. (On a side note, there have been reports that Hounddog's home market debut was pushed back to this week, but that appears not to be the case. It could have been pulled from the schedule temporarily, or it might have been canceled entirely.) More...

No Secret Who Tops the Per Theater Chart

September 9th, 2008

There was only one film that earned more than $10,000 on the per theater chart, as A Secret managed to make $37,000 in 3 theaters for an average of $12,378. More...

Per Theater Averages Fall after Summer

September 3rd, 2008

Not a single film reached the $10,000 per theater average mark this weekend. In fact, only Sukiyaki Western Django came close with $9,856 in one theater over the three-day weekend. More...

Summer Slumps on the Per Theater Chart

August 19th, 2008

Summer is officially over as no movie earned more than $10,000 on the per theater charts. The Girl Cut in Two and Elegy came close with averages of $9,329 and $9,090 respectively. More...

Summer Starts to Wind Down on the Per Theater Chart

August 12th, 2008

Elegy topped the charts with more than $100,000 in 6 theaters for an average of $17,361. The only other film to top $10,000 was Beautiful Losers, which barely crossed that milestone with $10,607 in one theater. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of August 8, 2008

August 9th, 2008

Not the best week for websites, but not the worst. While the best of the best, The Pineapple Express - Official Site, is not one of the best sites I've seen. But there are almost no movie sites that are missing or below acceptable levels. More...

Limited Releases for My Horses

August 8th, 2008

The Olympics have started and this might be scaring away some limited releases as we only have eight films in total, including three that are opening in dozens of theaters each. However, these wider releases are not necessarily the strongest releases. That said, none of the releases look particularly strong this week. More...
