DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 3rd, 2012

January 3rd, 2012

The first Tuesday of the year is not a great time of year for new releases on the home market. It's an even worse time of year for critics, especially this year. With Christmas Day landing on the Sunday, many studios took the entire week off, so there are plenty of screeners that still haven't made it my way. (There is some good news here, as I was able to get caught up on all of the screeners that had previously arrived late.) A couple of these potential late arrivals are contenders for Pick of the Week, like Justified: Season Two - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray and Mildred Pierce - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack. They also have competition from Contagion - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray, but in the end I gave that honor to The Guard - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray. More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Serendipity and She's All That

January 2nd, 2012

This week we have a couple of romantic films that were originally released by Miramax that are now making their Blu-ray debuts: Serendipity and She's All That. Both films came out over a decade ago and both were solid hits at the box office. That is to say, both films made much more than they cost to produce, but well below the $100 million milestone. There are plenty of films that perform this well that come out each year, so are either of these films memorable enough warrant owning? If so, are they worth grabbing on Blu-ray? More...

The shaded area represents the expected performance range for a film, based on its opening weekend box office. 95% of films fall within the shaded area. If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
