Limited and VOD Releases: Turn On and Tune In some Limited Releases

January 20th, 2017

The Red Turtle

There are a dozen limited releases we have release dates for, not all of which are big enough to be featured here. This is is a good number of releases for one week. Sadly, too many films just results in good films falling between the cracks due to the competition. Unfortunately, while there are a number of great films on this week’s list, like The Red Turtle, I don’t think any will thrive in theaters. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Mixed Reviews Plague Limited Releases as Son of Joseph Sole Exception

January 13th, 2017

The Son of Joseph

It’s a deceptively busy week as far as limited releases are concerned. On the one hand, we have release dates for 21 limited releases this week.

Maybe there’s something worth renting out there. More...

Limited Releases: Call in the Calvary

There are also a couple of documentaries that could do well in limited release, Finding Fela! and Rich Hill, but neither has the potential for breakout success. More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: The Raven

November 1st, 2012

When I first heard about The Raven, I was excited. I like Edgar Allan Poe's writing and I like John Cusack as an actor. The idea of John Cusack playing Edgar Allan Poe in a movie was enough to get me interested. Having Edgar Allan Poe trying to catch a serial killer who was using his writings as inspiration was a solid enough hook to get me excited. However, given the film's box office numbers, something clearly went wrong. Were moviegoers correct in avoiding the film? Or is it an undiscovered gem? More...
