This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: November 24, 2009

DVD LINKS: DVD NEWS | RELEASE DATES | NEW DVDS | REVIEWS | RSS FEED Gomorrah (Criterion Collection) I just published my review of this one and the film certainly holds up to repeat viewings and left an even greater impression on me than it did when I wrote my "B" review last year.

Box-Office Oracle: Jun. 19 - Jun. 21, 2009

#1 movie predicted correctly: 0 Weeks in a Row 1. The Hangover It's going to be an insanely close weekend at the top. I had Up taking the crown until the late breaking news came in that The Hangover is gaining 190 theaters. That was enough to swing the balance. If I get it right... Read more »

The Hangover got me again, becoming only the third film this year to take multiple box-office weekends. For the record, the other two were Paul Blart and Madea Goes to Jail. #1 movie predicted correctly: 0 Weeks In A Row 1. The Hangover Alert commenter Gophers Attack! had it dialed in, he called it in... Read more »

#1 movie predicted correctly: 0 Weeks in a Row 1. Up In a photo finish, I ended up losing last weekend as Hangover slipped past Up. So I'm taking Up again, if only to prove I'm stubborn. Estimate: $30.2 million 2. The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 I've put it right smack dab in... Read more »

Will I take my projected victory? You betcha. I was three million down on Friday night and it was not looking good. But I'm happy for The Hangover too. It crushed expectations, it's a funny movie, and worth of mouth should be fantastic. I saw it again on Friday night down here in Florida with... Read more »

#1 movie predicted correctly: 1 Week in a Row 1. Up I don't like the look of things this week at all. Too many weird things to predict. Why are two comedies opening against each other? I know one is R, and the other PG-13, but still. So I'm taking Up to drop 44.5% and... Read more »

Box-Office Wrap-Up: May 29 - May 31, 2009

It looks like an older fella (Up) is worth $18k per theater... vs. our favorite robot (WALL•E) from last year only sniffing $16k. Chuck B.'s early prediction would have been the best, but then he went back and revised it, so we can't give him the commenter crown. Sebastian was only a million off, but... Read more »

Box-Office Oracle: May 29 - May 31, 2009

#1 movie predicted correctly: 0 Weeks in a Row 1. Up I've put it at Wall-E numbers, per theater. I don't know what else to do with it. I consider a non-talking robot and an older fella to be about the same, marketing-wise. It has less theaters, comes a month earlier on the schedule, and... Read more »
