DVD Releases for December 30, 2008 - Part II

December 29th, 2008

This week is a mess because we are dealing with DVDs released on the 26th, the 27th, and the 30th. Additionally, we are dealing with the latest two waves of Paramount Blu-rays, so there are a lot of spotlight reviews this week. (Although when it comes to those particular Blu-rays, I have previously reviewed nearly half of them previously, and I have seen more than half of the rest, so it was easy to review.) It was so easy, in fact, I was able to get a couple reviews done in advance, which lead to a record number of spotlight reviews. There are more spotlight reviews this week than the previous four weeks combined. Needless to say, the column had to be split into two, with the second part found here. As for the best of the best, Serenity - Blu-ray easily won the DVD Pick of the Week, while Duckman - Season Three and Four is the DVD Pick of Next Week. Also worth grabbing are Event Horizon on Blu-ray, Ghost Town on either DVD or Blu-ray, Greek - Chapter Two, and The Truman Show on Blu-ray More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of September 12, 2008

September 13th, 2008

September is the month to release films that studios have no real faith in. Since they have no real faith in these projects, it comes as no surprise that the best of the websites, Righteous Kill - Official Site, doesn't really stand out enough to be worthy of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Not Tired of Limited Releases

September 12th, 2008

There are only four limited releases this week, none of which will have an easy road ahead of them. Towelhead has the best buzz, but its reviews could hold it back. Additionally, FLOW is returning to theaters this week, while Walking on Dead Fish appears to have been pushed back. (The official site has it opening on the 19th, which would be the second week-long delay for the film in the past month.) More...
