DVD Sales: Tangled in Tight Race on Top

April 19th, 2011

Despite having to deal with several new releases, Tangled was able to remain on top of the sales chart this week, albeit in a close race. It sold an additional 807,000 units over the week for a total of 4.27 million units, while its revenue rose to $65.17 million. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for April 5th, 2011

April 5th, 2011

It's Tron week with at least seven releases related to Tron and Tron: Legacy. This appears to have scared away the competition, because outside of those releases, there's not much of a selection. Actually, there are three $100 million hits coming out this week; however, one doesn't come out till Friday, so I'll likely deal with it next week after the screener arrives, and the other is so bad it's best to pretend it doesn't exist. Those two films are clearly the Pick of the Week, but depending on where you buy your DVDs, the Combo Pack may or may nor be less expensive than buying the two films separately, so double-check before you buy.

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Tron

April 4th, 2011

According to Amazon.com, there are 280 DVD and Blu-rays being released or re-released this week. Of those, 273 are related to Tron and Tron: Legacy. I'm exaggerating, obviously, but there are so many Tron releases that I may has missed one or two in the list above. The key release for me is this one, as it's the one Disney sent over my way. Tron: Legacy was the biggest hit of last December, at least so far. (True Grit is inching its way along and it has a slim chance of eventually topping it.) It might be the biggest, but the correlation between box office revenue and quality is sadly rather weak. So is it worth checking out? Perhaps it is worth picking up. If so, is it worth spending the extra cash for High Definition? 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.
