Limited and VOD Releases: Give the Gift of Zucchini

February 24th, 2017

My Life as a Zucchini

January and February are terrible months to release a limited release movie. Not only is it way too soon to earn Oscar buzz, but the competition includes a ton of last year’s crop of Oscar contenders. Worse still, this is Oscar weekend. I’m not saying there are no good movies coming out. My Life as a Zucchini is an Oscar-nominated film and it deserves to be seen.

Home Market Releases for March 1st, 2016

March 2nd, 2016

Strange Brew

There are some really good releases on this week's Home Market Release Report, including many that either won or were competing for Oscars, like Creed, Room, etc. However, once you get past the cream of the crop, there isn't much in the way of depth. Most of the Oscar contenders are Pick of the Week Contenders, but the best release by far is The Adventures of Bob & Doug McKenzie: Strange Brew on Blu-ray. This is the greatest movie ever made.

Featured Blu-ray Review: Hannah and Her Sisters

March 7th, 2013

Hannah and Her Sisters made its Blu-ray debut the same week as Sleeper did. While Hannah and Her Sisters earned more critical praise, I was always a bigger fan of Sleeper, but it didn't arrive and Hannah and Her Sisters did. More...
