DVD and Blu-ray Releases for March 20th, 2012

March 20th, 2012

It's another week were there are a lot of Awards Season players hitting the home market and a lot of screeners that are late. There are a trio of films that are high on the list of contenders for Pick of the Week. These include two serious drama / thrillers: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy on Blu-ray Combo Pack and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on Blu-ray. However, in the end, I went with the extreme other end of the serious scale with The Muppets's Wocka Wocka Value Pack More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Wizards: 35th Anniversary Edition

March 14th, 2012

Wizards came out in 1977, just a few weeks before Star Wars came out. This does help explain why it never became a massive hit at the box office, but pulling in $9 million on a $1.2 million budget is solid result. However, it came out 35 years ago and perhaps it hasn't aged as well as some other films of the genre. And is this release of the Blu-ray worth picking up or even upgrading from the previous release?

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for March 13th, 2012

March 13th, 2012

There are two themes this week. The first is Awards Season. There are no fewer than half a dozen Award Season players on this week's list, although one was a late review. Speaking of late reviews, that's the other theme on this week's list, as there are no fewer than eight releases on this week's list where I'm waiting for the screener to arrive. (This includes Wizards which arrived on Monday; however, screeners need to arrive by Friday if I'm to get the review done on time.) Unfortunately, there's a lot of crossover among these two groups and a few Pick of the Week candidates are late. For instance, My Week with Marilyn and Melancholia fit into both groups. Other screeners I'm waiting for that could be Pick of the Week are Wallace & Gromit: World of Invention and the aforementioned Wizards: 35th Anniversary Blu-ray, while The Guild: Season Five was up for that honor as well. However, in the end I went with The Descendants on Blu-ray Combo Pack. More...

Contest: Doesn't Take Magical Powers to Win

March 9th, 2012

Next week there is only one wide release, 21 Jump Street, so it is obviously the target film in this week's Box Office Prediction Contest. Fortunately, its early reviews are amazing, so maybe it will be a bigger hit than expected. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for 21 Jump Street. 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 Wizards: 35th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray. 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 Wizards: 35th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...
