Contest: Butterflies and Bullets

August 10th, 2012

Next week there are four films opening wide; however, only one of them, The Expendables 2 has any real shot at first place. ParaNorman should have better legs and there's a slim chance it will outlast its rival in the end. Regardless of ParaNorman's potential legs, The Expendables 2 is 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 The Expendables 2. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a copy of Butterfly Swords on DVD. Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will also win a copy of Butterfly Swords on DVD. Finally, one other entrant will be chosen regardless of what they predicted, and they will win the last copy of Butterfly Swords on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for July 24th, 2012

July 23rd, 2012

I'm getting tired of saying this, but it is a slow week on the home market. There is one prime release, Star Trek: The Next Generation: Season One on Blu-ray, which is currently leading this week's new releases, according to The second best selling new release is Masterpiece Mystery: Inspector Lewis Series 5 on DVD. It's a good show, but it is a British Import and these rarely make an impact on the chart. Third best selling new release? Game of Thrones. This is the third or fourth time the first season of this TV show has been "released" on the home market. I don't know why they are doing this, but it is getting annoying. There are not a lot of contenders for Pick of the Week either. Jiro Dreams of Sushi on Blu-ray and Star Trek: The Next Generation are the two leading contenders. While ST:TNG became an amazing series, it started out weak, so Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the better choice, but both are easily worth picking up. More...

Featured DVD: Butterfly Swords

July 20th, 2012

Butterfly Swords was released in its native Hong Kong in 1993 and has an impressive cast, including Tony Leung, Michelle Yeoh, Donnie Yen, and others. Butterfly Swords sounds like the least intimidating name ever, but it is the name of a type of weapon used in China, so it's like calling the movie Switchblade and I'm sure there are dozens of movies with that name. Hopefully no one will dismiss a movie just on the name, but will those who give it a chance be glad they did? More...
