New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: Tangled Up in Black (Swan)

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/29/11 at 09:54 AM CT

While there are a wide array of titles to choose from, there is no doubt that two rise above the crowd:

1) From director Darren Aronofsky comes Black Swan

Weekend Box Office: It Takes a Wimpy Kid to Dodge a Sucker Punch

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/27/11 at 11:33 PM CT

Despite a big advertising push and a lot of buzz, the critically-mauled Sucker Punch was not able to keep up the momentum over the weekend. Instead, the top film for the weekend was Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules.

In fact the $24.4 million was better than the opening for the original Wimpy Kid - and when you consider the film had just a $21 million budget, it's already a certified hit. Th...

New Movies to Crave: A Sucker Punch Straight to My Heart

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/25/11 at 08:55 AM CT

I can finally say that after weeks of films that held mild to no interest to me, there is a film I've been anticipating despite the fact I know it's probably going to be a lot of flash and little substance, but by God, that's exactly what I need right now.

1) Sucker Punch is going to be a mindless thrill ride: hot chicks kicking ass fighting zombie Nazis, samurai robots, dragons - it's a video...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: The Tourist and Yogi Bear Look to Yonder Skyline

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/22/11 at 10:59 AM CT

Well, we can take a short break from the onslaught of critically acclaimed Oscar-winning film releases this week. Instead, we can have a little fun this time around.

1) Although it was critically panned and also wasn't a hit at the box office, I admit that

Weekend Box Office: Limitless Leads but Not Quite the Perfect Drug

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/21/11 at 12:16 AM CT

Although Limitless prevailed at the box office, proving Bradley Cooper can hold is own as a leading man, the overall box office was still down 9% from the same weekend last year, extending Hollywood's losing streak. The $19 million opening for Limitless couldn't quite measure up to Unknown and The Adjustment Bureau, which both opened with over $21 million.

The other two wide releases, the cour...

New Movies to Crave: Hangin' with Paul, a Lincoln Lawyer and a Limitless New Drug

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/18/11 at 10:32 AM CT

Can we get rid of these winter blues, Hollywood? Week to week it seems the bad news keeps rolling in - but can these new releases finally turn things around?

1) For me, I have yet to be disappointed by the pairing of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Even with a film as off-the-wall as Paul looks to be, somehow I think it will work out if only because the duo are involved. Their comedic timing has be...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: The Fighter, Hereafter - Switch Things Up

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/14/11 at 11:32 PM CT

Another Oscar-caliber film rolls out to your home viewing pleasure, while the rest of the films fight for the scraps.

1) No doubt the top pick of the week is The Fighter

Weekend Box Office: Aliens Make It Big and Fall Hard

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/13/11 at 11:34 PM CT

It was a win-lose for sci-fi at the box office over the weekend. On the winning side of the coin, the Black Hawk Down-Meets-Independence Day film Battle: Los Angeles opened in the top spot, with a $36 million opening. While it was the second-largest opening of the year (behind Rango), the total box office was still down compared to last year.

Not helping things was the losing side of the sci-f...

New Movies to Crave: An Updated Fable, an Updated Classic and Two Sci-Fi Films Fight It Out

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/11/11 at 10:40 AM CT

Welcome, welcome - what is your pleasure? Kidnapped mothers? All-out destruction? Comely lasses and werewolves? Sweeping Romance? - Well, then pull up a comfy seat, enjoy your heart-clogging popcorn and help bolster a down year at the box office.

1) Sure, comparisons can be made to any other "aliens-invade-and-destroy-large-swathes-of-the-earth" films (see Independence Day, War of the Worlds),...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave: Enjoy The Next Three Days, Morning Glory... Jackass (3)

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/08/11 at 11:40 AM CT

Hopefully you enjoy gripping thrillers, light comedy, riveting documentaries and guys getting hit in the nuts for no good reason - because they're all coming your way.

1) While it doesn't look like it rises much above your conventional thrillers, I'll still give

Weekend Box Office: Rango Outguns Adjustment Bureau, Beastly Competition

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/06/11 at 10:21 PM CT

Channeling the spirit of everything from Chinatow to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly to Hunter S. Thompson, Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinski's Rango led the box office with a $38 million opening.

And while the total looks good, initial numbers had it pegged anywhere from $43 - $50 million, making the numbers a bit of a disappointment. Still, Paramount is happy - hoping that Rango takes a cue fro...

New Movies to Crave: An Adjustment of a Beastly Chameleon - Take Me Home, Tonight!

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/04/11 at 10:14 AM CT

Well, box office numbers were so disappointing last week, I didn't even want to talk about them. When a three-week old movie about gnomes beats all new films, it's a sad week for new releases indeed. Luckily for us, this weekend provides a much more robust lineup that has the best chance yet of shaking the box office doldrums Hollywood has found itself in.

1) Up front is Matt Damon and Emily B...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: 127 Hours of Bambi, Burlesque, Love & Other Drugs

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/01/11 at 10:22 AM CT

Let the post-Oscar deluge of nominees and winners begin! Expect quite a few movies over the coming weeks to be names that are familiar to many people: mainly because they were up for at least a few awards and are capitalizing on that to get a nice push in sales. That being said...

1) This week's leading release has to be James Franco's harrowing adventure under a rock:
