New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: Drive Angry You Biutiful Man

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/31/11 at 10:42 AM CT

After a long holiday weekend, you may as well settle down by watching some new movies.

1) Now, Nicholas Cage isn't known for making the greatest choices when it comes to choosing roles. I'm guessing Drive Angry

Holiday Weekend Box Office: Hangover II Travels Same Road to Glory, Panda 2 Kung Fu is Weaker

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/30/11 at 11:04 PM CT

It looks like audiences weren't worried about taking the same trip twice. Despite many reviews complaining about the similarities between The Hangover and its sequel, it still came out on top of the long weekend box office in a big way.

Factoring in a 3rd-place biggest midnight releases, The Hangover II ended up with $137.3 million - and the best opening ever for a live-action comedy film and ...

A Selection from My Collection: Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/28/11 at 08:26 AM CT

As this is a completely random pick from the films I own, Iíll just jump right into the third part of an epic trilogy. I have to hand it to Peter Jackson, it deserves every one of the 11 Academy Awards it ended up winning in 2004.

While Two Towers will always remain my favorite film of the trilogy, Return of the King isnít far behind. In fact, if it werenít for the somewhat extra-long end(ings...

New Movies to Crave: Get Hung Over at The Tree of Life with a Kung Fu Panda Too

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/27/11 at 09:49 AM CT

Nothing like a three-day holiday to sufficiently recover from another Hangover.

1) I was bummed after watching The Hangover that I skipped it in theaters. I won't make the same mistake twice. This time our merry group of wayward men find themselves in Thailand along with Ken Jeong's over-the-top character, Mr. Chow. While critics are arguing it's a rehash of the original, I don't think that's ...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: Gnomes Take On Number Four

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/24/11 at 11:51 AM CT

A pint-sized kid-friendly retelling of Romeo and Juliet and some aliens with Twilight appeal fight for your approval this week.

1) The idea of a bunch of garden gnomes doing their best to emulate The Bard sounds a might ridiculous, but none-the-less

Weekend Box Office: Pirates Rules the Box Office - at Low Tide

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/22/11 at 11:31 PM CT

It seems the fourth time still has its charms as Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, took the top spot over the weekend.

The $90.1 million opening now represents the biggest opening of the 2011 season, beating out Fast Five's $86.4 million. Still, even with the big opening, Pirates was down compared to the openings of both Dead Man's Chest and At World's End, neither of which benefite...

A Selection from My Collection: Perfect Blue

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/21/11 at 08:57 AM CT

Welcome to what I hope will be a new weekly blog here at FilmCrave. If you havenít had the chance to view my movies I own Ė well, I have A LOT of movies in what I like to think is a wide range of genres. Thus each week I will pick, at random, a movie to watch, analyze and hopefully provide some insight into why I chose to own that particular film.

So what will be the inaugural film? I think it...

New Movies to Crave: Pirates and Paris

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/20/11 at 10:10 AM CT

If you haven't seen a few hundred ads for it yet, you haven't been paying attention very well. It's all about pirates once again as Johnny Depp once again channels Jack Sparrow for the fourth time in what Disney hopes is another lucrative high seas outing.

1) Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides bids farewell to Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom (along with director Gore Verbinski) and ...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave: Get The Rite Mechanic for Your Roommate & The Other Woman

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/17/11 at 10:38 AM CT

It's a little action, a lot drama and a dash of horror - so if you can't find something to interest you, well, there's always next week.

1) First up is Jason Statham once again proving he's the go-to guy for in-your-face action with the remake of

Weekend Box Office: Thor Hammers Out Another Win

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/16/11 at 01:22 AM CT

It looks like Thor is still mighty, at least for one more weekend. The Norse hero managed to hold off a relatively strong R-rated comedy to keep hold of the top spot. With an estimated $34.5 million, Thor now stands at just over $119 million total. Dropping less than 50%, the film also retained more of its audience compared to super hero films past, including Iron Man 2 and X-Men Origins: Wolveri...

New Movies to Crave: It's the Bridesmaids vs. Priest in the Wackiest Wedding Ever (not really)

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/13/11 at 09:52 AM CT

With only two new major releases opening this week, depending on how your tastes run it will either be a good week or a really boring one.

1) I'm going to go ahead and give the edge to Bridesmaids. All the advertising says this is a chick flick that guys can enjoy too. I remain skeptical, but they have put together a great cast with some heavyweight SNL vets amongst others. Whether this girl-p...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave: Bieber Needs No Strings Attached for a Blue Valentine

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/10/11 at 11:11 AM CT

Hopefully you're ready to catch Bieber fever... or some other frightening disease, because I shudder that the week's top offering is also the highest-grossing concert film of all time.

1) I'm talking about Justin Bieber: Never Say Nev...

Weekend Box Office: Thor Opens #1 but Falls Just Short of Mighty

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/09/11 at 12:03 AM CT

In a result that should surprise no one, Thor opened in top spot for the weekend. And while the $66 million is impressive, it couldn't match the $86.2 million debut of Fast Five and in terms of super heroes, was behind the openings of Iron Man, Spider-Man and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Still, Thor doesn't quite have quite the immediate recognition as Iron Man or the forthcoming Captain America,...

New Movies to Crave: Thor Declares "It's Hammer Time",

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/06/11 at 11:19 AM CT

I have to admit after Fast Five gave a shot of adrenaline to the box office last week, I'm interested to see if Thor can also bring in some huge numbers.

1) So it's without a doubt that Thor take the top spot. Once again super hero franchise + special effects + 3D should equal box office gold. I'm over 3D at this point, but I have no problem watching it in good old regular dimensions. I admit ...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: A Dilemma for The Green Hornet

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/03/11 at 10:16 AM CT

After last week's yawner, it looks like we're back into the swing of things with some decent offerings.

Weekend Box Office: Fast Five Makes Competition Eat Its Dust

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/01/11 at 10:37 PM CT

Audiences must have felt a real need for speed over the weekend as Fast Five raced to the biggest opening of 2011 and the best opening of any film opening in April.

With Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and a whole slew of actors from the previous four films in the series, Fast Five debuted with a $83.6 million #1 opening. The last film to hold the record April opening? That would be Fa...
