Home Market Releases for July 7th, 2015

July 8th, 2015

Dude Bro Party Massacre 3

It's a slow week, which should come as no surprise. There are no major releases and even among the smaller releases, there are few that are must haves. As far as Pick of the Week contenders go, Dude Bro Party Massacre 3 is the best. It is the Pick of the Week, but you can only get it on the Official Site. I think it is worth the price for the Superfan Edition, but I also backed the Kickstarter at the Blu-ray level, so my judgment is not to be trusted. More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Slow West

July 7th, 2015

Slow West

Slow West opened in two theaters, but it quickly fell apart when it tried to expand. This is disappointing, as its reviews are more than 90% positive. Is this film aimed too much at critics? Or will it find an audience on the home market? More...

Contest: Don't Be Slow

July 3rd, 2015

Next weekend, there is only one new release that has a shot at first place, Minions. The other two might not even make the top five. This makes Minions the only real choice for the target film for this week's Box Office Prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for Minions.

Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a copy of Slow West on DVD. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will also win a copy of Slow West on DVD. Finally, we will be choosing an entrant from the group of people who haven't won, or haven't won recently, and they will win a Frankenprize featuring a previously reviewed DVD or Blu-ray. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

Limited Releases: Good and Slow

May 15th, 2015

Good Kill

This week's list of limited releases is shorter than usual, as I needed to get the home market numbers done. On the other hand, there are only six or so films earning great reviews and / or any amount of buzz, so there's not much you are missing. Good Kill could be the biggest hit, at least for a week before it goes to Video on Demand. Others, like Slow West, are already playing on Video on Demand. More...
