Four young people are on the last night of summer—their final night of freedom before the new school year starts. The teenagers cross paths as they explore the suburban wonderland they inhabit in search of love and adventure—chasing first kisses, elusive crushes, popularity and parties—and discover the quiet moments that will later resonate as the best in their youth.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 28th, 2012

February 27th, 2012

There are not a lot of new releases this week, but it includes four-time Oscar winner Hugo. The DVD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, or 3D Blu-ray Combo are clearly contenders for Pick of the Week, but so is My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic: The Friendship Express. I'm going with the former, but it is close. More...

Weekend Estimates: Captain America Neck-and-Neck with Thor for Superhero Honors

July 24th, 2011

After last week's fireworks, this weekend was another good one for the industry thanks to a better-than-expected opening for Captain America: The First Avenger. The superhero movie is set to gross about $65.8 million at the box office this weekend, which is almost exactly the same as Thor's $65.7 million opening back in May. Captain's estimate does rely on a slightly better Sunday than Thor, so it might not quite top the list of superhero opening weekends in 2011, but the difference will basically be a rounding error. What was billed as a potentially close race for top spot this weekend turned in to a very one-sided battle, with Deathly Hallows dropping a steep 72% from its massive opening to an estimated $48.1 million. $274 million after 10 days is still a best for the franchise, however.

Limited Releases Could Use a Little Help

July 22nd, 2011

There are several limited releases on this week's list with reviews that are good, but not many that have reviews that are great. Myth of the American Sleepover is that one film with great reviews and with strong buzz it could have the best shot at breakout success. However, it might not be the only one. More...
