DVD Releases for May 19th, 2009 - Part I

May 19th, 2009

It's a strange week when it comes to spotlight reviews with a lot of movies coming in pairs. We have a pair of Ben Affleck releases, a pair of Westerns from the Centennial Collection, a pair of Philip K. Dick releases, a pair of World War II films, a pair of stand up concert DVDs. We even have a spotlight review featuring twins. Besides that quirk of fate, there were a few releases that were contenders for the DVD Pick of the Week, including Terminator 2 - Judgement Day - Skynet Edition, True Blood - Season One, A Bug's Life - Blu-ray, all of which are coming on Blu-ray. In fact, the only contender for DVD Pick of the Week that is actually on DVD is The Guild - Season Two. That said, the best on this week's list is A Bug's Life - Blu-ray, and it is this week's DVD Pick of the Week. With all the double-shots, it comes as no surprise that this week's list had to be split into two, while the second page can be seen here. More...

DVD Releases for May 18, 2004

May 17th, 2004

Every week films get a second chance at success from the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success. It's the week of the Special Edition with no fewer than a dozen DVDs sporting that title, or a title very similar, (Limited, Collector's, etc.) And while a few are actually worthy of the Special Edition moniker, it is a selection from the TV on DVD section, Smallville - The Complete Second Season (Buy from Amazon) that is my DVD pick of the week.

A Very Happy New Year

January 5th, 2004

2004 started off with a bang as all movies in the top five beat expectations, although mostly by just a million or two. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King continues to lead and may yet have one more win up its sleeve for next week. This allowed 2004 to get an early jump improving upon last year's pace by more than 9%. There was a considerable drop from last week, but this was not surprising given the return to work / school on Monday. A drop of just 24% was the best week to week drop-off to start the year since 2000 when the box office dropped a mere 14%. More...

Will it be Three in a Row for the Trilogy?

January 2nd, 2004

This week there are no new wide openings, so the top five should look a lot like last weekend. This includes another winning weekend for Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. The lack of new releases is not uncommon for this time of the year, nor is the number of potential $100 million movies. Of the top five, one has already crossed $100 million and three more could follow. More...

Returning as King

December 29th, 2003

No one was surprised that Lord of the Ring: Return of the King remained on top for the second weekend in a row, but most of the new entries did surprise at the box office. It is also not surprising that the box office shot up from last week by over 30%, but the yearly increase was a much more modest 4%. That is less than the average increase in ticket prices. More...

Lord Will Remain King over Christmas

December 24th, 2003

There's really no doubt Lord of the Rings: Return of the King will remain number one over Christmas / the weekend. The only real question is how much of last weekend's record breaking performance will it maintain and how well will the other movies fare. More...

Movie Websites Launches for December 19 - December 25

December 24th, 2003

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. Here is an abridged list of highlights, (including the winner for the week, Peter Pan - Official Site) plus one last look at websites for films opening this week. This week's list is abridged due to the holidays. Next week's will probably be the same, but it will return to normal in the New Year. If you know of any new movie websites not on this list feel free to e-mail me with the details. More...
