DVD Releases for February 10, 2009 - Part I

February 10th, 2009

One of the busier weeks in the past several weeks, but there's little in the way of top-notch releases. The biggest box office hit was Nights in Rodanthe, which struggled to become a mid-level hit. The best release in my opinion is My Name is Bruce on Blu-ray, but only if you are a Bruce Campbell Fanboy. I am, and I'm awarding it the DVD Pick of the Week. While there were not as many top-notch releases, there were still more than enough bulk to force this column to be split into two. The second part can be found here. More...

Awards Season - Oscar Nods far from Curious

January 22nd, 2009

For a year without an obvious front-runner for the Oscar race, there were not a whole lot of surprises when it came to the nominations. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced their nominations today and leading the way was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with thirteen while Slumdog Millionaire was second with ten. More...

Awards Season - SAG Strikes Back

December 28th, 2008

The Screen Actors Guild nominations were announced last Friday, but in the holiday rush, they fell through the cracks. Perhaps that's because most SAG talk these days revolves around possible strike action. The big player here is undoubtedly Doubt, which picked up four individual nods and one for its primary cast. More...

Awards Season - Ballast, River, and Rachel Getting Nominations

December 2nd, 2008

It's the official start of award season as the Independent Spirit Award nominations were announced today. At first glance, no one film jumps out as the big player, but Frozen River did manage to pull in seven nods, while Rachel Getting Married and Ballast earned six each. More...

Per Theater Chart is Rocking

October 15th, 2008

Two limited releases performed amazingly on this week's per theater chart with RocknRolla earning first place with an average of $20,672 in seven theaters. Second place went to Happy-Go-Lucky with an average of $18,467 in four. Meanwhile, last week's winner, Rachel Getting Married, remained potent with an average of $16,505, despite tripling its theater count. 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...

Siberia Heats Up on the Per Theater Chart

August 5th, 2008

It took three weeks, but Transsiberian landed on top of the per theater chart with an estimated $27,000 in just 2 theaters for an average of $13,500, which was a little more than it earned last week. Also in limited release, Man on Wire saw its overall number drop by a small amount despite doubling its theater count to 4, which resulted in its average falling to $12,119. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor opened with an average of $10,760 in 3,760 theaters. Frozen River barely reached the $10,000 mark with an average of $10,033 in 7 theaters, although it wasn't as close as The Dark Knight was, as that film earned an average of $10,001. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of August 1, 2008

August 2nd, 2008

The first week of August did not bring a bumper crop of new releases. Furthermore, only two sites on this week's list even stood out as above average. However, one of those sites, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor - Official Site stood out as worthy of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Beautiful Limited Releases

August 1st, 2008

Only half a dozen limited releases this week, but that includes one that is opening in more than 100 theaters. There's little hope for most of these films, especially the one opening in select cities. Additionally, Beer for My Horse has some mixed signals with regards for its release, with its official site saying it is coming out next week on the 8th. If the site is wrong, that movie is in a whole lot of trouble. More...
