DVD and Blu-ray Releases for October 5th, 2010

October 5th, 2010

One of the busiest weeks on the DVD / Blu-ray release report; in fact, I set a record for most reviews in a single week. With so much competition, one might think it would be tough picking the Pick of the Week, but that was not the case, as Beauty and the Beast - Blu-ray / DVD Combo walked away with that distinction. The only other release that really came close to it was Phineas and Ferb: A Very Perry Christmas, while there are about a dozen or so other releases worth picking up on this week's list. More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Combo Review: The Last of the Mohicans

October 3rd, 2010

Michael Mann has quite a reputation as a director with only one of his films, The Keep, earning bad reviews. And in his defense, that was a low-budget horror film that he made very early in his career. (I vaguely remember seeing that movie, but I might have it confused with another Nazi / Demon / Castle movie.) The Last of the Mohicans was his first big film, and any doubt about his talent was erased when it earned 97% positive reviews. In fact, with those reviews, I'm a little surprised it wasn't a bigger player during awards season. But we are getting ahead of ourselves. More...

The shaded area represents the expected performance range for a film, based on its opening weekend box office. 95% of films fall within the shaded area. If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
