Tomorrow the the horror remake Black Christmas is coming on an Unrated DVD, so it's quite a coincidence that it is snowing where I live. It's April 2nd, and it's snowing here. Yes, I live in Canada, but in this part of Canada there is a less than 50 / 50 chance that we get snow on Christmas Day and it is practically unheard of to get snow in March. Yet here it is snowing in April. This is freaking me out. I'm expecting to start hailing, then it will rain frogs, and before you know it AnnaSophia Robb is hanging around with Hilary Swank trying to figure out what the hell is going on.
I'm telling you, this is a sign of the end times!
Repent! Repent! ...

Yikes! It's a busy week for DVD releases with closing in on 50 DVDs on this week's list. Not only are there are a lot of films worth checking out, there's a very close race for the DVD Pick of the Week. It came down to Children of Men - Buy from Amazon and The Shield - The Complete Fifth Season - Buy from Amazon. It's practically a coin flip here, but I'm giving the DVD Pick of the Week to Children of Men - Buy from Amazon, after all, I couldn't let the film get passed over for yet another award. That would be just too cruel.

The Illusionist was able to climb to the top of the per theatre charts this week despite seeing its theatre count nearly triple. The film's average of $12,745 was significantly, but not overwhelmingly ahead of second place Suicide Killers, which earned $10,601 in its lone theatre. Half Nelson, which led the charts the previous two weeks, slipped to third but still managed to maintain its $10,000 per theatre average with nearly $211,000 in 21 theatres for an average of $10,036.
