DVD and Blu-ray Releases for April 19th, 2011

April 18th, 2011

This year's big Oscar winner, The King's Speech, is hitting the home market this week. It leads the way in terms of quality and is likely to be the best-selling new release. It's certainly the Pick of the Week, with neither the DVD nor the Blu-ray being a substantially better deal than the other. The only other real contender is the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack, but that came out on Friday. More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Teen Wolf

April 13th, 2011

When Teen Wolf came out on 1985, Michael J. Fox was arguably the biggest star around. Family Ties had quickly become a critical darling, as well as a ratings winner. Back to the Future was still at the of the box office. In fact, when Teen Wolf was released, and for the next three weeks, Michael J. Fox had the top two films at the box office. However, flash forward 25 years, and while there are many people who still consider themselves to be fans of Back to the Future, Teen Wolf has faded. Will it be rediscovered on Blu-ray? Does it deserve to be rediscovered? More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for March 29th, 2011

March 30th, 2011

It's a very busy week for DVD and Blu-ray releases with several top-tier releases, as well as plenty of interesting catalog titles. Paradoxically, this week's list could be rather short, as I've previously reviewed most of the major releases, while I'm still waiting on about half of the catalog titles to show up. So this week's list is mostly just links to the reviews already done and notices of what reviews to look forward to if / when late screeners arrive. In the meantime, the best of the best is a three-horse race between Tangled, Black Swan, and Mad Men: Season Four. All three are absolutely worth picking up, but for Pick of the Week I'm going with the Mad Men: Season Four 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.
