Synopsis

The Mill and the Cross Brings to life Pieter Bruegel's panoramic masterpiece The Way to Calvary, a majestic rendering of the Passion of Christ set in Flanders (year 1564) under brutal Spanish occupation. As epic events unfold, bawdy country living continues apace: couples entwine, musicians play wind instruments, and children scurry about among the ducks and geese. Concurrently, soldiers torture their enemies against a deceptively bucolic landscape.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 31st, 2012

January 31st, 2012

It's kind of an unusual week on the home market with five first run releases coming out on DVD and Blu-ray. However, all five films missed expectations in one degree or another. Some were outright bombs by anyone's definition, while others were expected to struggle to find a large audience, just not by as much as they did. That is not to say they were all bad movies. In fact one of them, Drive, has done quite well during Awards Season and the Blu-ray Combo Pack is a contender for Pick of the Week. Its main competition is To Kill A Mockingbird: 50th Anniversary Edition, which is also coming out on a Blu-ray Combo Pack. It's a coin toss, but I'm going with the latter over the former. More...

Per Theater Chart: Restlessly Waiting for Awards Season

September 21st, 2011

Restless won the race to the top of the per theater chart with $15,467 in its lone theater. However, given its reviews, I don't think the word of mouth will be there to help it expand. The Lion King was second with an average of $12,941. The Mill and the Cross was the only other film to cross $10,000 at $11,354 over the weekend and $15,443 from Wednesday through Sunday. More...

Limited Releases are Feeling Restless

September 16th, 2011

Not a lot of limited releases with breakout potential on this week's list. My Afternoons With Margueritte might be tops on the per theater chart this week, but even it is does so, odds are it won't expand dramatically after that. More...
