Home Market Releases for October 6th, 2015

When Marnie Was There

The home market release report is a little late this week, because in our ongoing attempt to improve our site, we are looking at the format of this column and it will change shortly. (Also, this week both Amazon and Rotten Tomatoes were acting up. I had to download a script blocker and block all scripts on Rotten Tomatoes. Certain things no longer work, but at least it doesn't cause Firefox to freeze every ten minutes.) The biggest release of the week is The Avengers: The Age of Ultron, sort of. It came out last Friday, not this Tuesday. I'm waiting for my copy to arrive so I can do a full review. Meanwhile, the best new release of the week is When Marnie Was There in Blu-ray Combo Pack.

Featured DVD Review: What We Did on Our Holiday

October 5th, 2015

What We Did on Our Holiday

What We Did on Our Holiday is a dramedy starring Rosamund Pike and David Tennant as a less-than-happy couple traveling to his father for less-than-happy reasons. It hardly made an impact at the box office in its native U.K. and barely made a peep here. Was there a reason it was ignored? Or is it an undiscovered gem? More...

Contest: Slight Delay

October 2nd, 2015

Slight delay isn't the name of the contest. There will be a slight delay in the contest, as there may or may not have been a shipping error with the prizes. I was supposed to get one copy of What We Did on Our Holiday and three for a contest. I only received one copy. I'm not sure if that means they ran out of copies before they could supply the ones I needed for the contest, or if they will be shipping the prizes directly to the winners. Worse still, I can't simply wait till next week to feature What We Did on Our Holiday, as the next too weeks have tentative prizes booked. So I fired off an e-mail and I'm waiting for an answer. If I don't get one by the end of business today, we will be going with the same prizes as last time, two Frankenprizes comprised of two horror movies and a third Frankenprize consisting of two really bad movies. There will be a contest regardless and the target film will be Pan, so you can enter by sending your opening weekend box office prediction for Pan to


Limited and VOD Releases: What Films to see on Our Holiday

July 10th, 2015

What We Did on Our Holiday

Very few movies on this week's list have a real shot at box office success. Stations of the Cross and Tangerine are both earning amazing reviews, but both are niche market releases. Many movies are also earning good reviews, like What We Did on Our Holiday, but are playing on VOD, so they likely won't find audiences in theaters. More...
