The Transformers: The Movie

This week, the biggest hit of the year so far, Captain America: Civil War, comes out. It is also one of the best and the Blu-ray is a contender for Pick of the Week. Unfortunately, the screener is late and I don’t like awarding Pick of the Week to a release where I’m still waiting on the Blu-ray. The rest of the contenders are smaller films, including The Bloodstained Butterfly, which arrived late. Part of me wants to give the title to The Transformers: The Movie, but while I plan to buy the Blu-ray, I understand that Nostalgia has a lot to with that. ... Oh what the hell, doing it. The Transformers: The Movie is the Pick of the Week. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Limited Releases have Therapeutic Value

June 10th, 2016

Therapy for a Vampire

There are a few limited releases coming out this week that have a chance of finding an audience, but none that will expand significantly. De Palma is a must see for fans of the director, or of movie business documentaries in general. King Jack has perfect reviews, but it is also playing on Video On Demand. Therapy for a Vampire is the film I'm most interested in seeing, but while its reviews are great, it likely won't escape the art house circuit. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for November 5th, 2013

November 7th, 2013

It's a big week with several first run releases, some big TV on DVD, releases, and more to deal with. The only one that truly rises to the level of Pick of the Week is Mad Men: Season Six, but the screener arrived late and I hate awarding Pick of the Week to a title when that happens. The only other release I really want to see is White House Down, but that's more guilty pleasure than Pick of the Week. I guess it goes to Mad Men: Season Six on DVD or Blu-ray. More...

Limited Releases Don't Need Instructions

August 30th, 2013

There are not a lot of limited releases on this week's list, and even fewer that might thrive. Instructions Not Included is the biggest release, but with only one review on Rotten Tomatoes, I'm worried the buzz won't be enough. I Declare War is a Canadian film opening in the States. Its reviews are good, but not great. Our Nixon is earning the best reviews, but as a political documentary, its chances to expand significantly are very limited. More...
