Synopsis

Fifteen-year-old Oliver Tate has two big ambitions: to save his parents' marriage via carefully plotted intervention and to lose his virginity before his next birthday. Worried that his mom is having an affair with New Age weirdo Graham, Oliver monitors his parents' sex life by charting the dimmer switch in their bedroom. He also forges suggestive love letters from his mom to dad. Meanwhile, Oliver attempts to woo his classmate, Jordana, a self-professed pyromaniac who supervises his journal writing - especially the bits about her. When necessary, she orders him to cross things out.

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: The Art of Getting By

November 29th, 2011

Helmed by first time writer / director Gavin Wiesen, The Art of Getting By had a great cast and very strong pre-release buzz. There was talk that the film would open wide, which would have been a rare feat for Fox Searchlight. However, while many people were bullish over the film's box office chances, the reviews were well below expectations and the film's semi-wide release was a disaster. Was this a fair result? Or does it deserve to find an audience on the home market? More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for October 4th, 2011

October 5th, 2011

It's a maddening week on the home market. There were more than a dozen featured reviews this week, and what seems like an equal number that are late. (And that's not mentioning the more than a dozen Blu-rays and DVDs that arrived late last week that I still haven't gotten to. At least I don't have to worry about not having enough to do for the next few weeks.) There were a number of contenders for Pick of the Week, including The Walking Dead: Season One on DVD or Blu-ray. But in the end I choose The Lion King Blu-ray Combo Pack. More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Submarine

October 4th, 2011

Submarine came out early in the summer and before its release there was a lot of buzz. However, while the film's reviews were outstanding and it topped $10,000 on the per theater chart its opening weekend, it struggled when it tried to expand and never found a real measure of mainstream success. Now that it is out on the home market, will it find a larger audience? Or is its appeal limited to critics and art house crowds? More...

Per Theater Chart: Beginners Begins Big but can't Top Tree

June 7th, 2011

The Tree of Life held onto top spot on the per theater chart with an average of $30,915 in 20 theaters. It will undoubtedly expand further. Beginners was right behind with an average of $28,268 in five theaters. Midnight in Paris continues to shine with an average of $18,843 in 147 theaters. It has a planned semi-wide expansion this weekend, so this is very likely the last time it will top $10,000 on the per theater chart, but it will continue to hit milestones. X-Men: First Class earned first place on the overall box office chart and fourth place on the per theater chart with $15,134. Submarine managed to top $10,000 on the per theater chart, but it was close with and average of $10,458 in four theaters. More...

The Limited Releases are Looking Beautiful

June 3rd, 2011

For the past two weeks in a row we've seen one limited release just dominate the market by earning close to $100,000 on the per theater chart. Will that happen again this week? The odds are really stacked against it; it would be like a wide release opening with $100 million three weeks in a row. But if it does happen, Submarine is the film most likely to manage that feat. However, there are a few other limited releases worth keeping your eyes on. More...
