Synopsis

The government says there’s nothing to worry about—it’s just a problem with bears making trouble in the mountains and forests of Norway. But local hunters don’t believe it—and neither do a trio of college students who want to find out the truth. Armed with a video camera, they trail a mysterious “poacher,” who wants nothing to do with them. But their persistence lands them straight in the path of the objects of his pursuits: Trolls. They soon find themselves documenting every move of this grizzled, unlikely hero—The Troll Hunter—risking their lives to uncover the secrets of creatures only thought to exist in fairy tales.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for August 23rd, 2011

August 23rd, 2011

Summer is winding down, and while that means weaker box office numbers, it also means stronger home market releases. We are still a little early for summer blockbusters; however, TV on DVD releases are really heating up and will begin to dominate the scene. There are a few of those worth checking out, including NCIS: Season Eight, which is a contender for Pick of the Week. However, that honor goes to Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension. (An honorable mention also goes to Reboot: The Definitive Mainframe Edition, which finally arrived last week. It was worth the wait.) More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: TrollHunter

August 22nd, 2011

TrollHunter, or as it is sometimes known as, The Troll Hunter, Troll Hunter, and in the original Norwegian, Trolljegeren. The film opened in limited release to a lot more buzz than most films do, but despite great reviews, it never really found an audience. Now that it is out on DVD and Blu-ray, will more people want to see the film? And if so, is the DVD or the Blu-ray worth picking up? More...

Per Theater Chart: Hat Trick for Tree

June 14th, 2011

The Tree of Life remained in top spot on the per theater chart with an average of $17,596 in 47 theaters. It will clearly expand further, and it is safe to say it has already earned some measure of mainstream success. The Trip opened well with an average of $12,984 in six theaters. It did earn great reviews, so it might last a long time in theaters. On the other hand, I think its target audience is too narrow to expand significantly. Beginners was in a virtual tie with an average of $12,793. It will start hitting milestones soon. Super 8 opened with an average of $10,492 while in saturation level theater count. More...

Limited Releases are a Real Trip

June 10th, 2011

While this week's list of limited releases isn't as long as some in the past couple of months, it does have one of the best-reviewed films of the summer, The Trip. And while Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are not exactly household names here, the latest film by Michael Winterbottom could turn out to be his biggest hit here. More...
