Tripp Kennedy ambles into a bank near closing time, just as two different gangs unwittingly converge to rob it. A shoot--out erupts, and Tripp tackles the smart, pretty teller, Kaitlin, to protect her. The gangs - one clearly made up of pros and the other a couple of buffoons named Peanut Butter and Jelly - have deadlocked themselves in a Mexican standoff. The bank’s security system starts the end--of--day lockdown and seals everyone into the building. As the night evolves, a hilarious game of cat and mouse ensues as Tripp and Kaitlin try to save the day, escape being killed, and avoid falling in love...almost.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for November 15th, 2011

November 16th, 2011

It's a really soft week for releases. Granted, Harry Potter came out last week and it is likely still going to be selling quite well this week. But the best release of Tuesday, at least according to, is Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on DVD. Normally this would be a huge release, but it came out on Blu-ray weeks ago. The same is true of the second best selling release, The Lion King. The most of the next several best selling releases are Blu-ray catalog titles. Granted, many are worth picking up, but it could still be a really slow week in terms of overall sales. That doesn't mean it is a slow week in terms of high quality releases. West Side Story is coming out on Blu-ray, My Fair Lady is also making its Blu-ray debut. There are several more catalogue titles getting a Blu-ray double-dip, like Evil Dead II: 25th Anniversary Edition, or the latest Blu-ray for Metropolis. TV on DVD is well represented with Farscape: The Complete Series (Blu-ray), Being Human: Season One on Blu-ray, and Awkward: Season One. Beginners on Blu-ray is also a Contender for Pick of the Week, as is Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume One: Blu-ray Ultimate Collector's Edition. In the end I went with Evil Dead II: 25th Anniversary Edition. It is a double-dip, but there are major improvements over the previous release, plus it is a bargain price at just $11, and given the number of prime releases coming out this week, a bargain price is certainly welcome.

Per Theater Chart: State Makes Senna See Red

Last of the Summer Limited Releases

August 19th, 2011

It's a rather busy week for limited releases with eight films in total, including a few earning overwhelmingly positive reviews. That said, its too late for summer and too early for Awards Season, so it might be tough for any of the films to find an audience. If I were to bet, Mozart's Sister is the mostly likely winner, but The Hedgehog and The Last Circus are also worth checking out. More...
