DVD and Blu-ray Releases for April 24th, 2012

It's slow week for new releases, a really slow week. According to Amazon.com, the best selling new release is Contraband. It was the biggest box office hit released in January, but it was still no more than a midlevel hit. The second best selling release of the week is The Innkeepers, which is a sign that it is a slow week. Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to seeing the movie, but it is a limited release that struggled to find an audience in theaters and it shouldn't be the high on the chart. The third best selling new release of the week is the latest Fullmetal Alchemist release, which is even more surprising, as Anime is still very much a niche market release. The fourth best selling release is Car 54 Where Are You?. Really? I'm surprised anyone remembers that TV show. Are there any releases that are worth picking up? Perhaps even contenders for pick of the week? Actually, The Innkeepers on Blu-ray is in the running, as is Pariah on Blu-ray. However, in the end I went with Todd and The Book Of Pure Evil: Season 1, giving it the rarely awarded Puck of the Week. More...

Limited Releases: Iron Grip on the Weekend

It's the last chance for films looking to earn some Oscar glory and there are three films on this week's list looking to do just that. Unfortunately, the film earning the most buzz, The Iron Lady, is also earning the weakest reviews out of those three. Fortunately, the other two films are earning perfect reviews (A Seperation) or near perfect reviews (Pariah) so moviegoers have options. More...
