Blu-ray Sales: March 17th, 2013: Lively Starts for Guardians and Pi

April 29th, 2013

New releases did better on Blu-ray than they did on DVD with eight films charting on the March 17th, 2013 edition of the Blu-ray sales chart. They were led by Rise of the Guardians, which sold 584,000 units / $11.77 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 42%, which is strong, for a kids movie. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for March 12th, 2013

March 13th, 2013

There are not many first run releases coming out on the home market this week, but two of them, Life of Pi and Rise of the Guardians, rose to Pick of the Week status. For that honor, we have to turn to an older release, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, which celebrated its 25th Anniversary by coming out on Blu-ray for the first time. Yes, it is shovelware, but it is still the best movie on this week's list. If you don't have the DVD already and really don't like Pan & Scan, you might want to wait till Disney fixes the mix-up with the DVD portion of the Combo Pack. More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

March 12th, 2013

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? came out 25 years ago? I suddenly feel old. I loved this movie as a kid but I haven't seen the film in about a decade (not since it first came out on DVD). When it first hit theaters, it was a groundbreaking film. There's no way to deny that. However, the problem with groundbreaking films is that they tend to age. What was amazing 25 years ago tend to look archaic today. Unless there's a really solid story to back it up, the film will fall flat. Does this film have that solid story? Or was it a rather hollow technological marvel? 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.
