DVD and Blu-ray Releases for May 4th, 2010

May 5th, 2010

We are entering summer, which is a great time of year for the box office, but a terrible time for home market releases. According to Amazon.com, the best-selling release of the week is Saving Private Ryan on Blu-ray, which is also arguably the best release of the week. But I'm awarding the Puck of the Week to Murdoch Mysteries: Season 2, which is a rare Canadian TV-on-DVD release. More...

Sun is Shining on Per Theater Chart

March 17th, 2009

Sunshine Cleaning had the best per theater average of any film so far this year, pulling in an outstanding $220,000 in 4 theaters for an average of $54,798. Any doubts about the film's ability to expand wide should be greatly reduced after that. Opening in second place was Tokyo Sonata with an average of $14,173. The re-release of Z was the only other film to top $10,000 with an average of $10,144; however, Fados came close with $9,788. More...

Movie Website Reviews for the Weekend of March 13th, 2009

March 14th, 2009

After several weeks without much in terms of Award-worthy sites, we have two sites this week that are both worthy of the award: The Last House on the Left's Official Site and Race to Witch Mountain's Official Site. The former has better design, the latter has better interactive features. Both should sell the movie to their respective audiences, and both are recipients of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Limited Releases are Bright and Shiny

March 13th, 2009

The first limited release with a real shot at expanding wide opens this week. However, Sunshine Cleaning isn't the only movie on this week's list worth checking out. If you live in Toronto or Vancouver, go and see Pontypool, while those in New York City can also catch Tokyo Sonata. More...
