Four teenagers try their hand at notoriety by making “gonzo style” skateboard videos. Kick flipping from roof tops, racing into on-coming traffic, and getting into bloody-knuckle brawls in skate parks, the foursome look to put the finishing touch on their video by skating an undiscovered ditch in Tijuana, Mexico. The hope, of course, being to film a lot of sex, drugs, and booze along the way. Their debauchery has disastrous consequences when they become the human sacrifices for a Mexican Death Cult’s ritual. As they fight viciously against the undead, a darker and more evil creature rises amongst the blood and carnage. This fight they will not be able to win.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 17th, 2015

February 16th, 2015

This is the best week on the home market in a long time. Game of Thrones is one of the best TV shows on at the moment, if not the best TV show, and its DVD and Blu-ray is Pick of the Week material. Additionally, there are a few potential Oscar winners hitting the home market this week as well. On the down side, there is not a lot of depth. Birdman, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, and The Theory of Everything are all up for Oscars next weekend and all of them are worth picking up. Life Itself was snubbed by Oscar voters, but it too is a must have. However, in the end, I went with Game of Thrones for Pick of the Week. More...

Per Theater Chart: Mockingjay Makes a Mockery of the Per Theater Chart

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 poster

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 not only earned first place on the overall box office, but it also led the way on the per theater chart with an average of $29,366. Foxcatcher earned an average of $19,764 in 24 theaters. It is nearly at $1 million and has room to grow further. The Theory of Everything expanded again, but still remained in the $10,000 club with an average of $10,798 in 141 theaters.


Limited Releases: Pain in the... Mule

November 21st, 2014

The Mule poster

It is not a busy week as far as limited releases are concerned, which is good, because my computer crashed halfway through and I had to redo some of this column. (Save early, save often.) However, while there are not a lot of films on this week's list, many of them are earning overwhelmingly positive reviews. It is unlikely that all of them will be able to capitalize on their reviews. Bad Hair, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, The King and the Mockingbird, The Mule, as well as a few documentaries all deserve to find audiences. Hopefully more than a couple of them actually do.
