DVD Sales - People Take Home Taken

May 27th, 2009

Taken wasn't the only new release to chart this week; in fact, there were nine that reached the top 30. However, it was comfortably the best-selling with 2.31 million units and $37.96 million in consumer spending at retail. It is already the tenth best-selling DVD of the year. More...

DVD Releases for May 12th, 2009 - Part I

May 12th, 2009

Thanks to last week's computer crash, and the overabundance of spotlight reviews, the rest of the list will be a lot shorter than usual. Unless the DVD is a contender for DVD Pick of the Week, it will only get a few sentences at most. As for the best of the best, I would go with Galaxy Quest, the Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition as my DVD Pick of the Week. Also worthy is Star Trek - Original Motion Picture Collection. A big list means we have to split it into two, and the second part can be found here More...

DVD Releases for March 24th, 2009 - Part II

March 24th, 2009

Technical difficulties with Amazon's site meant this column was a lot harder to get done than usual. However, I won't hold that against this week's releases, and there are a number that are worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week from practically every category. TV on DVD has Andy Richter Controls the Universe - The Complete Series, from the classics we have The Odd Couple - Centennial Collection, from new releases we have Bolt - Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, Blu-ray offers us James Bond Blu-ray Collection - Volume 3. We even have a late entry, as Let the Right One In - Blu-ray arrived. All five are worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week, but if I was forced to chose just one, Bolt - Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack would probably please the most people. After a couple of "slow" weeks, we are back to splitting the column into two parts. The first part can be found here. More...

Changeling is Feeling Lucky on the Per Theater Chart

October 28th, 2008

Changeling's weaker than expected reviews didn't hurt it at the box office, at least not its opening weekend. The film topped the per theater chart with an impressive average of $32,601 in 15 theaters. Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom placed a close second with a surprisingly strong average of $30,336 in five theaters. Synecdoche, New York also opened better than expected despite weaker than expected reviews with an average of $19,133 in nine theaters. Let the Right One In did something no horror film has been able to do in a while: survive in limited release. It opened in four theaters with nearly $50,000 for an average of $12,324. Now all it has to do is maintain this momentum as it expands. The final film in the $10,000 club was the overall box office leader, High School Musical 3, which opened with an average of $11,601 in saturation release. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of October 24, 2008

October 25th, 2008

Not only will High School Musical 3 - Senior Year break records at the box office this weekend, it also has the best Official Site on this week's list. Granted, it wasn't a particularly strong week for movie websites, but it was still the best. More...

Changing Fate of Limited Releases

October 24th, 2008

It looks like the streak of limited release misses will continue this weekend as Changeling is not living up to expectations with critics. There are still a couple of limited releases opening this weekend that are definitely worth checking out such as Let the Right One In and Fears of the Dark, but the odds are that neither will find an audience until the home market.
