DVD Rentals - Last Starts in First Place

September 1st, 2009

There were only half as many new releases to reach the top 30 on the rental chart this week as there were on the sales chart, but we still had a new number one. The Last House on the Left opened in first place with nearly 50% more rentals that I Love You, Man. More...

DVD Releases for August 18th, 2009 - Part II

August 18th, 2009

It's that time of year again. It's getting closer to the start of the new TV season, which means there is a flood of TV on DVD releases this week. And next week. And all next month. While there are several TV on DVD releases that are worth picking up, like Dexter - Season Three, there are no releases this week that combines an excellent show plus excellent extras, and therefore there are none that rise to the level of DVD Pick of the Week. However, while there are not a lot of top tier releases, there are plenty of total releases and this week's list had to be split into two. The first part can be found here. More...

Hurt and Revenge Rise on the Per Theater Chart

June 30th, 2009

The Hurt Locker did something most films about the Iraq War have not been able to do: succeed at the box office. During its opening weekend it earned close to $150,000 in just four theaters for an average of $36,338. The overall number one film, Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen, managed second place with an average of $25,736, and nearly double that since Wednesday. Meanwhile, last week's number one film on the per theater average, Whatever Works, landed in third with $10,280. More...

Movie Website Reviews for the Weekend of June 26th, 2009

June 28th, 2009

For a weekend that features what could be the biggest movie of the year, the list of movie websites is merely average. Then again, I've noticed this trend for a few years that movie websites have stagnated in quality. I blame Running Scared. The website was so popular, that it crashed the server, but the movie itself bombed. It was at this point that I believe studios realized that having a popular website doesn't mean a movie will be a hit. Since then, the amount of effort put into websites has dropped off with more sites featuring less sound and animation; even sites for wide releases are rather cookie cutter at the moment lacking interactivity or creativity. This is part of the reason why I'm strongly considering phasing out this column. There's very few sites worth writing about, and it would give me more time to concentrate on reviewing DVDs, which takes up a considerable amount of my time already. I haven't finalized my decision, so if you have any thoughts, e-mail me. More...

New Movie Trailers

This week, we're starting a new feature on the site: a weekly round-up of movie trailers added to the site. For your convenience, the trailers are added to the movie's page, along with cast and crew information, and, of course, box office data once the movie goes into release. More...

Limited Releases are Not Hurting for Theaters

June 26th, 2009

There are only half-a-dozen limited releases on this week's list, but half of them are opening in more than a dozen theaters. Opening in more theaters is not always good for a limited release, and this could be the case this week. Of the film's on this week's list, The Hurt Locker has the best reviews and the best chance at finding an audience. More...
