Farewell, My Queen captures the passions, debauchery, occasional glimpses of nobility and ultimately the chaos that engulfed the court of Marie Antoinette in the final days before the full-scale outbreak of the Revolution.

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 / DVD Review: Farewell, My Queen

March 6th, 2013

Farewell, My Queen opened last July and earned more than $1 million in limited release. That's impressive compared to most limited releases, and it is doubly so for a foreign language film. Did it deserve this run? And if so, do the DVD and Blu-ray live up to the film? More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 15th, 2013

January 15th, 2013

It is a rather shallow week on the home market. Taken 2 should come away with an easy win, but after that, there's almost nothing that will reach the top 30 for the week. Also, Taken 2 is not Pick of the Week material. I don't know if there is anything that is truly Pick of the Week material. Wake in Fright comes the closest, but the DVD or Blu-ray is still late, I hate giving this title when I'm still waiting for the screener. More...

Looking for Authentic Limited Releases

July 13th, 2012

It is not a super busy week for limited releases, but there are a few that have a shot at success. The Imposter is earning nearly perfect reviews, but it is a documentary, and that hurts its box office chances. Easy Money and Farewell, My Queen are also earning overwhelmingly positive reviews, but they are both foreign language films, and that usually limits box office numbers as well. Trishna doesn't quite have the same reviews, but I think it will still top the per theater chart. More...
