DVD Sales: Immortals and Throne Both Have Claim to Top Spot

March 21st, 2012

New releases dominated the DVD sales chart with two DVDs having a legitimate claim to the top spot. Immortals sold the most units 649,000 units, while its revenue was the second best for the week at $11.12 million. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for October 18th, 2011

October 18th, 2011

It should be a relatively good week in terms of DVD and Blu-ray sales with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides leading the way. However, it's not a particularly deep week in terms of home market releases. Nor is it really strong when it comes to contenders for Pick of the Week. Degrassi: Season Ten is in competition, but in the end I went with Robotech: The Complete Series. More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Footloose

October 12th, 2011

The original Footloose came out on Blu-ray a couple weeks ago. The screener arrived late, but since the new version of Footloose hits theaters this Friday, the timing of the review couldn't be better. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for September 27th, 2011

September 27th, 2011

It's another incredibly busy week on the home market with over 400 new releases on Amazon.com. However, again there were only a few that were worth mentioning with a whole lot of filler. The biggest release of the week is Transformers: Dark of the Moon on Blu-ray, but it doesn't come out till Friday. Looking at some of the other top selling releases and it's clear how weak the selection is. There's a stand-up comedy DVD, a couple catalog titles being released on Blu-ray, Anime, a couple TV on DVD releases, and the first DVD release of Adventure Time. Adventure Time on DVD? Pick of the Week. More...
