DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 2nd, 2010

February 2nd, 2010

It's still a slow time of year for home market releases. It's too late for the Christmas shopping rush, while it is still too early for Awards Season releases to come out. There are a few limited releases, direct-to-DVD releases, TV on DVD releases, and catalogue titles that are of interest, but the best of the best is Zombieland. While both formats are worth checking out, the Blu-ray is the Pick of the Week. More...

Featured DVD Review: More Than a Game

January 30th, 2010

More Than a Game is a documentary about the Saint Vincent - Saint Mary high school basketball team that included four friends who had been playing together since they were in fourth grade, one of whom is Lebron James. It had started out as a film school project by director Kris Belman, but as the story grew, so did the film. What started out as a ten-minute project for Intro to Documentary Filmmaking became a feature-length film released in theaters late last year. That's an interesting journey for a film to make. Hopefully the movie itself is at least just as interesting. More...

Coco Before Chanel repeated in the $10,000 club with an average of $12,878, but it will need some strong word-of-mouth if it wants to stay they one more week. More...

Some Serious Limited Releases

October 2nd, 2009

While there are five limited releases on this week's list, there is really only one that has a short at significant expansion. That film is A Serious Man, which should not only have the best per theater average over the weekend, but has a chance at picking up several Oscar nominations. More...
