Featured Blu-ray Review: Mimic Franchise Collection

Mimic came out in 1997 and marked the English-language debut of Guillermo Del Toro. The film earned a solid profit and respectable reviews, enough to generate two direct-to-DVD sequels. However, Guillermo Del Toro wasn't with the theatrical cut and late last year he finally got a chance to release a Director's Cut. That screener never arrived, but this week a complete franchise collection hit my desk. Did the changes improve the original film? And are the two sequels worth checking out? More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for May 1st, 2012

It's yet another very slow week on the home market. In fact, all of May is very slow on the home market, although this is not surprising for this time of year. I'm not even going to attempt to pad out the list this week. Is there anything in contention for Pick of the Week? Fortunately, the answer to that is yes. Unfortunately, the screener is late. Normally I really don't like awarding Pick of the Week to a film when the screener is late, but in this case, Haywire is head and shoulders above the rest, so unless the Blu-ray has less than zero special features, it's the best out there.

Blu-ray Sales: Transformers Soar Past the Moon

Transformers: Dark of the Moon dominated the new releases and the Blu-ray sales chart in a way few films have managed. It sold 1.42 million units generating $29.66 million from Friday through Sunday. Its opening Blu-ray ratio was 64%, which is a record for a first-run release. It also represented 68% of all Blu-rays sold, which is mind-boggling. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for 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...
