From the lush wetlands of Botswana's Okavango Delta comes the suspense - filled tale of a determined lioness ready to try anything - and willing to risk everything - to keep her family alive. In the new wildlife adventure The Last Lions, Filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert follow the epic journey of a lioness named Ma di Tau ("Mother of Lions") as the battles to protect her cubs against a daunting onslaught of enemies in order to ensure their survival.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 3rd, 2012

January 3rd, 2012

The first Tuesday of the year is not a great time of year for new releases on the home market. It's an even worse time of year for critics, especially this year. With Christmas Day landing on the Sunday, many studios took the entire week off, so there are plenty of screeners that still haven't made it my way.

A couple of these potential late arrivals are contenders for Pick of the Week, like Justified: Season Two - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray and Mildred Pierce - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack. They also have competition from Contagion - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray, but in the end I gave that honor to The Guard - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray. More...

This Weekend Could Be Murder on Limited Releases

February 18th, 2011

It's really hard to find many limited releases that are earning more than 80% positive reviews, which is usually the level needed to thrive in limited release. There are several that are on the bubble, but it could be really hard for any of them to find breakout success. There are a few that are earning a lot of positive buzz, including Small Town Murder Songs, but I really don't think any will thrive. More...
