Limited and VOD Releases: High Water Mark

August 12th, 2016

Hell or High Water

This week’s list of limited releases is full of films that are earning good reviews, but not great reviews, and they will struggle to survive in limited release. Then there’s Hell or High Water.

January 26th, 2016

Goosebumps

It is a really slow week on the home market this week. Not only are there very few releases, none of them are top-tier.

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Journey to the West

May 25th, 2014

When Journey to the West was released last year, the film made $200 million internationally, which helped lift expectations. (It made less than $20,000 here, but it was playing on Video on Demand as well as in theaters, so this isn't surprising.) Is the film as good as its predecessors? And is the Blu-ray worth picking up?
