DVD Releases for November 17th, 2009 - Part I

November 16th, 2009

Big Fan of Limited Releases

August 28th, 2009

There are seven limited releases on this week's list, including a number earning very impressive reviews. That said, I can't see any films that strong shot at mainstream success. Big Fan has a chance, if its reviews hold strong, but most will have to wait till the home market to find an audience, if they find an audience. More...
