A proud Labor Day parade floats by as hundreds of parents and children line the streets in the last gasps of summer. It is made up of local leadership, a brigade of first responders, the town priest, a high school marching band and a magic school bus in a town that could by Anytown, America. Yet this isn't any town. It's Newtown. Twenty months after the horrific mass shooting in Newtown, CT that too the lives of twenty elementary school children and six educators on December 14, 2012, the small New England town is a complex psychological web of tragic aftermath in the wake of yet another act of mass killing at the hands of a disturbed young gunman.

Home Market Releases for January 3rd, 2017

January 2nd, 2017


The first Tuesday of the year is deceptively busy. There are a ton of romantic films being re-released on DVD, and a few on Blu-ray that I mention below, with Fandango money for Fifty Shades Darker.

The best of the week is Denial on Blu-ray, while Best and Most Beautiful Things on DVD and The Librarians: Season Two on DVD are also worth grabbing. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Looking for Timeless Limited Releases

Voyage of Time will likely be the biggest hit on this week’s list, but as an IMAX film, it will likely be in theaters for years. More...
