Featured Blu-ray review - Rocky - The Heavyweight Collection

February 8th, 2014

Rocky: The Undisputed Collection came out nearly five years ago and I loved it. Now a new box set is coming out. However, is it any different than before? Or is it a simple cash grab? More...

Contest: Between a Rocky and a Hard Place

February 6th, 2014

Next weekend is Valentine's Day / Presidents Day long weekend and there are four wide releases hoping to take advantage. Of those four, only two have a shot at first place, RoboCop and About Last Night. RoboCop is opening on Wednesday, so that leaves About Last Night as the clear choice for the target film for this week's box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for About Last Night. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), regardless if they go over or not, will win a copy of Rocky: Heavyweight Collection on The Ultimate Guide to the Presidents on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

Featured Blu-ray review - Rocky - The Undisputed Collection

November 28th, 2009

Rocky is one of the longest running franchises of all time, having started back in 1976 with Rocky and ending 30 years later with Rocky Balboa. During that timespan, the franchise spawned six films, some of which were Oscar winners, others that were panned by critics and moviegoers alike. Of the six films in the franchise, four are making their Blu-ray debuts as part of The Undisputed Collection, so hardcore fans will certainly be interested in picking up the box set. But is it worth it? Do the films shine in High Definition? Is it better to grab the individual releases, even if that means waiting until they are released separately? More...

International Details - Reaping the Rewards

April 29th, 2007

The Reaping climbed into sixth place this past weekend with $5.98 million on 2634 screens in 39 markets for a total of just $20.38 million. The film had a couple respectable openings including South Korea where it made $1.17 million on 129 screens over the weekend and $1.34 million in total while it took in $335,000 in Brazil. However, in most markets the film stumbled, like in France where is placed seventh with $684,000 or the the U.K. where it placed eighth with $622,000 on 282 screens. The film debuted in ninth place in Australia, ($405,000 on 133 screens); in Russia, ($261,000 on 111); and in Germany, ($247,000 on 201). Mexico became the film's best market as it has pulled in $4.45 million in three weeks, including $589,000 on 350 screens this past weekend; this is just ahead of the $4.25 million the film has earned in Spain, but it only managed $334,000 on 299 screens this past weekend and will quickly disappear there. More...

Home Market has a Bloody Close Race on Top

March 31st, 2007

A trio of new releases led the sales chart this week, and those three all managed to place in the top five on the rental charts as well. This includes the new number one film, Blood Diamond with $9.00 million. More...

DVD Releases for March 20, 2007

March 20th, 2007

It's a busy week for DVDs, and it's even busier next week. Not only are the overall numbers high, the quality is good too, with several films from last year's award season / holiday rush coming to the home market. One of these films, Rocky Balboa - Buy from Amazon, was a serious contender for DVD Pick of the Week, as was a TV on DVD release, NewsRadio - The Complete Fifth Season - Buy from Amazon. But in the end I went with a cult classic that more people should experience, Re-Animator - Limited Edition - Buy from Amazon. More...

International Details - Music Holds onto an Extended Note

March 11th, 2007

Music and Lyrics remained in sixth place with $5.64 million on 1645 screens in 18 markets for a total of $32.01 million internationally. The film disappointed domestically, but it appears to be making up for that softness on the international scene. The film's best opening of the weekend came from South Korea where it placed second with $2.06 million on 144 screens while it also grabbed second place in Brazil with $490,000 on 140. Holdovers were led by the U.K. where the film earned $1.09 million on 364 screens during its fourth week of release for a total of $15.71 million in that market alone. That's close to a $100 million run here, taking into account the relative sizes of the two markets. More...

International Details - Losing Blood

February 25th, 2007

The Blood Diamond fell from second to sixth this past weekend, mainly due to the lack of new openings. The film still pulled $8.52 million on 3409 screens in 59 markets for a total of $77.51 million and is still on pace for $100 million internationally, but that's the last milestone in its future. More...

International Top Five - Return of the Night

February 14th, 2007

The Pursuit Of Happyness's reign on top of the international charts was short lived as Night at the Museum reclaimed the crown. Over the weekend the film pulled in $14.01 million on 4559 screens in 43 markets for a total of $231.50 million so far. Topping this week's markets was France where the film opened in first place with $4.3 million on 676 screens while it fell just 33% during its second weekend in Italy adding $2.45 million on 463 screens for a total of $9.51 million. Even if the film had no further markets to open in, $250 million internationally and $500 million worldwide would be virtual guarantees. However, it has yet to open in Japan as well as midlevel markets like Belgium and the Netherlands. More...

International Top Five - Pursuit Finally Catches Museum

February 7th, 2007

The Pursuit Of Happyness won the weekend race for the first time in its four-week international run. The film played in roughly two-dozen markets over the weekend earning $16.47 million on 3177 screens for a running tally of $72.50 million. Much of the weekend earnings came from a trio of new openings led by Spain where it placed second with $2.44 million on 285 screens. The film also opened second in France with $2.2 million on 322 screens and in Mexico with $1.34 million on 300. One of its best markets of the weekend was Japan where it slipped just 18% to $2.39 million on 271 screens for a total of $8.81 million. Meanwhile, the film's best total so far has come from Italy where it has made $17.71 million in total, including $1.57 million on 339 screens this past weekend. More...

International Top Five - Month Long Night

January 31st, 2007

Night at the Museum has been in first place on the international charts for a month now and shows little sign of slowing down. This week the film added $15.21 million on 4422 screens in 48 markets for an international total of $194.88 million. Openings include first place debuts in Spain, ($5.67 million on 473 screens), and the Philippines, ($798,000 on 96). On the other hand, it had to settle for third in Brazil with $977,000 on 461 screens. Its best holdover of the week was the U.K. where it is in fourth place during its fifth week of release with $2.28 million on 458 screens over the weekend and total of $39.23 million. More...

International Top Five - Happyness in Close Pursuit of Museum

January 24th, 2007

Night at the Museum remained in first place, as it has since it opened four weeks ago, but this time it was involved in a relatively close race. The film added $14.84 million on 4391 screens in 45 markets for a total of $173.86 million. The film only had one new opening this weekend and that was in Uruguay where it opened with $38,000 on 13 screens; that may not seem like much, but it represents the fifth biggest opening ever in the market. More...

International Top Five - Night Starts to Fall

January 18th, 2007

While Night at the Museum saw its weekend haul drop by more than a third this weekend, it still took first place with $20.16 million on 5193 screens in 34 markets for a total of $151.34 million. In Brazil the film earned an estimated $3 million on 502 screens and if that holds up it would be Fox's third biggest opening ever in that market. Other strong markets include $2.71 million on 803 screens in Germany for a total of $17.24 million after three weeks. At this pace the film will have no trouble reaching $200 million, and that's not taking into account markets it has yet to open in, markets including France, Spain, Italy, and Japan. More...

International Details - Slim Pickings

January 15th, 2007

Apocalypto was the best of the rest this weekend pulling in $8.3 million over the weekend for a running tally of $20 million on the international scene. Its biggest single market was the U.K. where the film opened in third place with $2.62 million on 385 screens, (including very limited previews), which was a record for a foreign language film. It did even better in Italy with $3.17 million on 316 screens placing second. Given the film's R-rating, it should outperform its domestic total giving it a target box office of over $100 million worldwide. More...

New Year was a Weekend to Celebrate

January 3rd, 2007

It was a fairly predictable weekend as far as box office numbers go. No film really beat expectations by a wide margin, nor did any fail to do so. This meant nearly every film in the top ten showed significant growth (the lone exception was Rocky Balboa), while the only film in the top twenty to see a serious drop-off was the Christmas film, The Nativity Story, which plummeted more than 67%. More...

New Year is Out with the New, In with the Old

December 29th, 2006

It's the New Year's Day long weekend, and not surprisingly, there are no new wide releases this week. There are, on the other hand, two movies that are playing their first weekend, Dreamgirls and Black Christmas. However, it looks as if neither has what it takes to wrestle top spot from Night at the Museum. More...

Christmas Delivers Some Gifts to Good Moviegoers (and a Couple of Lumps of Coal)

December 28th, 2006

Most films missed expectations this weekend and that hurt the overall box office, which was off 8% compared to last year. But there were still reasons to celebrate with Pursuit of Happyness and Rocky Balboa matching their production budget over the weekend while Dreamgirls exploded on Christmas Day. More...

Movie Website Updates for December 16 - December 21, 2006

December 22nd, 2006

An abridged list with just the sites for movies opening this week, and maybe one or two others. Because it is such a short list, there's no real strong choice for Weekly Website Award. Rocky Balboa - Official Site comes the closest, but it doesn't quite get there. More...

Rocky Looks to Knock Out Competition With Fast Start

December 21st, 2006

Christmas is one of the busiest times of year and this year is no exception with five films opening wide from now to the 25th and another expanding. Because of the crowd, at least one or two will be lost, squeezed out by the competition. However, there are also two or three films that are aiming at $100 million, or more. More...

New Movie US Release Dates - December 3, 2006

Movie Website Updates for November 25 - December 1, 2006

Good week with plenty of strong site, but there was not a whole lot of competition at the very top as The Good Shephard - Official Site took home the Weekly Website Award. More...

2006 Preview: December

December 1st, 2006

Looking at my calendar I see that it's March 11th. ... March 11th, 2003. This means it's time for me to get a new calendar, but more importantly, it's time for the December preview. December is an insanely busy time of year with studio release major blockbusters in hopes of cashing in on the holidays, as well as a ton of Oscar bait movies hoping to remain fresh in voters' minds by the time the ballots are handed out. On a side note, this is the first time in several years that's there not an obvious Must See movie opening during the month. Sure, there are quite a few that should crack $100 million at the box office, maybe even $200 million, but nothing like The Lord of the Rings. In addition to the ton of wide releases and limited releases scheduled to open wide this month, there are several more movies opening in limited release this month before expanding in the new year. Movies like Home of the Brave, Arthur & the Invisibles, The Painted Veil, Letters from Iwo Jima, Children of Men, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Fast Track, and Pan's Labyrinth, and possibly some others. More...

Movie Website Updates for November 11 - November 17, 2006

November 18th, 2006

A lot of trailers on this week's list of websites. Not only were there a lot of site with just trailers, there were a few trailers without sites. On the other hand, there were also a few contenders for the Weekly Website Award. In the end it was The Children of Men - Official Site that took home that prestigious award. More...

Movie Website Updates for October 21 - October 27, 2006

October 28th, 2006

There was a good selection of sites this week in terms of updates, but unlike last week there were fewer contenders for the Weekly Website Award. That's not to say Let's Go to Prison - Official Site didn't deserve to win, it just had a lot less competition than it would have had if it launched last week. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 29 - August 4

August 4th, 2006

Third week in a row where the number of sites featured on this list has topped 30. With such a busy week it would take something different to win the award, and that's something Michel Gondry excels at delivering giving The Science of Sleep - Official Site the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 22 - July 28

July 28th, 2006

Another big week for movie sites with several excellent entries. In this crowded field there were a lot of sites that showed promise and could be just one big update away from winning the award. But this week the best of the best was World Trade Center - Official Site. Let's hope that the movie can live up to the site. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 15 - July 21

July 21st, 2006

Another busy week, but unlike last week there was no massive blockbuster launching its flash site. Two sites stood out this week, (not counting past winners), and they are wildly different both in terms of style and in terms of the movie they are selling: Accepted - Official Site and World Trade Center - Official Site. The former is goofy and seriously immature, while the latter is one of the most emotional sites I've ever seen. In was nearly a coin flip, but in the end I went with Accepted - Official Site, but I would be willing to bet the other site will win before the movie comes out. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 8 - July 14

July 14th, 2006

It's a good week for website with what could be the last big hit of the year launching its flash site. That movie, Miami Vice, and its Official Site, is the winner of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for May 27 - June 2

June 2nd, 2006

There were a few major updates for a few major movie sites this week, and it was one such site that walked away with the Weekly Website Award - Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Official Site. More...

Movie Website Updates for May 6 - May 12

May 12th, 2006

There's a better than average selection on this week's list, but for the vast majority of the sites, there are only minor changes. The best of the bunch is Click - Official Site but there are a several other sites on this week's list that are just a update or two away from being an award winning site. More...
