Synopsis

Rose is a beautiful, quick-witted con-artist, who makes a killing selling fake paintings. But when she scams an art loving gangster he sets Europe's most efficient and expensive assassin on her tail. Enter Victor Maynard. He sets out on the assignment with his usual lethal professionalism. Yet every time Victor has Rose in his sights something holds him back. Entranced by the spirited Rose, Victor spares her life and becomes her protector, accidentally acquiring a young apprentice into the bargain. Now on the run, Victor has to fight both his feelings for Rose and the murderous attentions of the second most expensive assassin, sent to finish off all three of them.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 8th, 2011

February 8th, 2011

Wow. It's a bad week for DVD / Blu-ray releases. While there are a number of first run releases, none of them exactly shout Pick of the Week. The best bet as far as first run releases goes is Paranormal Activity 2, but the screener hasn't arrived yet. Same goes for Thelma & Louise, which is making its Blu-ray debut this week. So in the end I went with Doctor Who: Story 63: The Mutants as the pick of the week. Great story, powerful message, and lots of extras. More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Wild Target

February 8th, 2011

Wild Target opened in its native market with less than wild success. Here it barely made a peep in limited release. This happened despite a cast with a much higher than average name recognition level than most limited releases have. Perhaps a comedy about a hitman was hard to sell to art house moviegoers. Or maybe there were other issues. More...

New Releases Fail Inspection on the Per Theater Chart

November 2nd, 2010

Again, there was only one film that reached the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart. Inspector Bellamy opened with an average of $10,318 in two theaters. However, Waste Land came very close with $9,806 in its one theater. More...

Welcome to the Limited Releases

October 29th, 2010

Another week and I'm still waiting for the flood of Oscar hopefuls to come out. There are a couple of high profile films making their theatrical debut this week, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest and Welcome to the Rileys, but neither are earning good reviews. While the movies that are earning excellent reviews are mostly documentaries and foreign imports. More...
