Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection

September 20th, 2015

Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection

The screener for Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection finally arrived, so the review is a little late. Was it worth the wait? Are the shorts worth owning? Are there a lot of double-dips? More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Studio Ghibli Double-Feature: The Cat Returns and Spirited Away

June 16th, 2015

The Cat Returns

This week we have two Studio Ghibli films making their Blu-ray debuts. The first, Spirited Away, is one of their best-known movies. The other, The Cat Returns, is not. Fans of the studio will obviously want to pick up both of these Blu-rays, but will they have appeal beyond the hardcore fans? More...

Limited Releases: Will Bad Words bring Good News?

March 14th, 2014

Bad Words poster

There could be as many as two-dozen limited releases opening this week, which is insane. That's so many that I'm going to have to limit the ones I talk about to those that I can easily find release dates and / or theater listings for on official sites. (I should really do this every week, because too many times I talk about a film opening in limited release, only to never hear about the movie again.) The competition is overwhelming, but there are a few that rise above the crowd. Veronica Mars is opening wider than any other film and its reviews are pretty good. On the other hand, it is also playing on Video on Demand, so its box office numbers might be really weak. Bad Words is only opening in six theaters tonight, but since it already has a wide expansion planned for the 28th, one could say it is the biggest release of the week. There are several other films on this week's list that could find an audience (Enemy, Exposed, On My Way, etc.) but the competition will likely prove to be too much. More...

2013 Preview: November

November 1st, 2013

October ended on a winning note, but it was the only time the entire month that 2013 topped 2012 in the year-over-year comparison. This is quite shocking, as Gravity crushed expectations with more than $200 million and counting. Even with that surprise monster hit, the month still couldn't keep pace with last year. Compared to October, November looks a lot better with three films that could be monster hits: Frozen, Thor: The Dark World, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. On the other hand, those are the only three movies with a 50/50 chance or better to top $100 million compared, while there were seven films that reached that milestone last November. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire should make more than last year's number one film, Skyfall, but the depth last year could prove too much to deal with. 2013 might dip below last year's pace sometime during the month, but hopefully it won't stay there too long.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for October 8th, 2013

October 8th, 2013

There are a couple first-run releases on this week's list: After Earth and The Hangover: Part III. However, neither film won over critics and both bombed in theaters, when compared to their production budgets. That said, The Hangover: Part III will likely be the best selling release of the week. As for the best new release, including a number where I'm still waiting for the screener. Ignoring those, the two best are Robot Chicken: Season Six on DVD or Blu-ray and Much Ado About Nothing on DVD or Blu-ray. Both are must haves, but I'm going with the latter over the former for Pick of the Week. More...

Limited Releases Don't Need Instructions

August 30th, 2013

There are not a lot of limited releases on this week's list, and even fewer that might thrive. Instructions Not Included is the biggest release, but with only one review on Rotten Tomatoes, I'm worried the buzz won't be enough. I Declare War is a Canadian film opening in the States. Its reviews are good, but not great. Our Nixon is earning the best reviews, but as a political documentary, its chances to expand significantly are very limited. More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: House of Lies: Season One

December 16th, 2012

House of Lies debut in January of this year on Showtime. The cable network seems to specialize in flawed anti-heroes for their comedies. Many times this works, like with Shameless or Nurse Jackie, other times it doesn't, like with Californication or the later seasons of Weeds. Can the cast of lies maintain the balance between flawed and charming? Or have the writers mistakenly thought selfish and egotistical is a shortcut to compelling characters? More...
