DVD and Blu-ray Releases for May 25th, 2010

May 24th, 2010

According to Amazon.com, the best-selling release of the week is True Blood: Season Two on DVD while the Blu-ray is the second best selling release. I'm not saying it's a bad deal; in fact, it is a contender for Pick of the Week. However, for a TV on DVD to top the chart probably means sales for other titles will be quite weak. Other contenders for Pick of the Week include Leverage: Season Two and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. All three releases win that coveted title, but if I were forced to pick just one of them, I would go with True Blood: Season Two on Blu-ray. The flashbacks in the Picture-in-Picture track are just such a cool idea that it wins the tie-breaker. More...

Limited Releases - Martial Art via Bollywood

January 16th, 2009

The best word to describe this week's list is 'small.' There are only five films on this week's list. Also, only one film is opening in more than one theater, and only one film is earning overwhelmingly positive reviews. They are not the same film, sadly, and it is hard to imagine any of these films becoming big hits. That said, at least Chandi Chowk to China should have a shot at becoming a niche market hit.
