DVD Releases for October 7, 2008 - Part I

October 7th, 2008

It's not a good week for first-run releases, as there's not a single one from that group that would get serious contention for DVD Pick of the Week. However there are a number of other contenders, including classic releases Sleeping Beauty - Two-Disc Platinum Edition - on Blu-ray and Ray Harryhausen - Ultimate Collector's Giftset on DVD or Blu-ray. There as also a couple of TV on DVD picks to look at like 30 Rock - Season Two and Robot Chicken - Season Three. The final release this week that I would like to give a shout out to is Jack Brooks - Monster Slayer on DVD. (Finally, there are a couple of late spotlight reviews that are worth picking up: NCIS - Season Five and Ghost Whisperer - Season Three.) One last note. While first run releases were weak, the overall list was long and the second part of my run-down can be found here. More...

Wire Towers Higher than Bat

July 29th, 2008

Man on Wire topped the per theater chart this week by pulling in an impressive average of $25,696 in two theaters. This was ahead of the overall box office leader, The Dark Knight, which earned an average of $17,216 in more than 4,000 theaters. Transsiberian also repeated in the $10,000 club, down roughly 23% to $13,280. Brideshead Revisited opened in 22 theaters, which is a lot of a limited release, but still managed an average of $10,291 during its opening weekend, which bodes well for its prospects at expansion. The final film to reach $10,000 did so by the narrowest of narrow margins as Step Brothers topped that milestone by less than 24 cents. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of July 25, 2008

July 26th, 2008

Summer is starting to wind down and there's not potential monster hits opening this week, which hurt this week's list at the top. However, while there were no groundbreaking sites this week, Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer's Official Site contained a 14-part behind the scenes video blog that is better than most DVDs have. This was enough to give the film the Weekly Website Award. More...

The Myth of the Limited Release

July 25th, 2008

Nearly a dozen limited releases this week, although two of those are Canadian, so they don't count. (Joke.) The film with the best shot at mainstream success is Brideshead Revisted, but given this year's track record, I am hesitant to predict what its chances are to buck the trend. More...
