Yep... it's another one of those weeks where I skipped last week's new releases, and now it's either do a two-week column at once or risk throwing myself off completely. And, of course, since I am doing two weeks at once, it's a huge column, so strap in. We're gonna be here a while.
Since moving to HitFix from AICN, I'm sent a lot less material for review, and I'm working to change that. It's hard enough to keep up with what's coming out, and when I'm sent about one out of twenty titles for review, it gets real expensive real fast to put this column together. I mean, I guess I could just write it having seen nothing, but what value is there in that?
I do have some good BluRay reviews coming this week, and I'm hoping to find a way to ramp up DVD and BluRay coverage in general here at the site. It's important to me because, more and more often, this is where people are exposed to films for the first time, or where they are willing to take a chance with what they watch, and I think that makes home video a big part of the conversation about movies.
