Doctor Who Season 10 Blu-Ray To Include Tons Of Juicy Extras

There’s been much to enjoy from Doctor Who‘s last few seasons – Peter Capaldi, Michelle Gomez, the odd standout episode here and there – but ultimately, it’s been a bit scattershot in quality. It took a while for the Twelfth Doctor’s era to find itself, which meant it lacked the cohesive quality of David Tennant and Matt Smith’s eras. Seasons 8 and 9 were enjoyable TV, don’t get us wrong, but not up to the expected quality of the show.

With season 10, though, Doctor Who finally got its groove back. It seems that, as this was the final run for both Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat, they decided to go all out in making it a year to remember. Due to the erratic scheduling of the Capaldi era – there was no season at all in 2016 – season 10 was hands down the best run of the show in a good long time.

'The Only Living Boy in New York' Review: Weak Riff on 'The Graduate' Is a Waste

'The Only Living Boy in New York' Review: Weak Riff on 'The Graduate' Is a Waste
Marc Webb, who directed one of my all-time favorite rom-coms, (500) Days of Summer, gets it all wrong this time with The Only Living Boy in New York. How do major misfires like this happen? Blame the screenwriter. Summer showed the light touch of Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber; Boy is credited to writer Allan Loeb, whose growing rap sheet includes the excruciating Collateral Beauty and The Space Between Us. Even the best actors – and this coming-of-age movie boasts a handful of them – can't fight this much tin-eared dialogue.

Film Feature: Best & Worst of 2017 So Far by

Chicago – The 4th of July holiday is over and the second half of the year looms before us, so what better time than to assess 2017 so far, with the best and worst films of the first half of the year. The film critic contributors of – Patrick McDonald, Jon Espino and Spike Walters – offer up their choices for Best and Worst.

The first half of 2017 was fairly strong, as the increasingly crowded film marketplace is not necessarily holding the best films until the fall “Oscar season.” Each film critic will offer three films, as Patrick and Jon will assess their personal “Best,” and the virtuous Spike Walters will take on the “Worst.”

‘John Wick’ Sequel Reignites Original on Disc Charts for Lionsgate

‘John Wick’ Sequel Reignites Original on Disc Charts for Lionsgate
In a triumph for Lionsgate, two Wicks in one week made the top 10 on the two national home video sales charts for the week that ended June 18.

John Wick: Chapter 2” bowed at No. 1 on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Excitement about the sequel’s disc debut sent the first installment in the action thriller franchise, 2014’s “John Wick,” back up the sales charts to No. 7 on the overall chart and No. 8 on the Blu-ray Disc-only chart.

Both films star Keanu Reeves as a retired hitman who jumps back into the game to seek vengeance.

“Chapter 2” grossed $166.8 million globally, more than four times its budget and almost twice as much as the original took in at the box office. Domestically, “Chapter 2” earned $92 million and the first “John Wick,” $43 million.

The previous week’s top seller, Walt Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast,” slipped to No. 2 its second week in stores.

Another new release, “The Lego Batman Movie” from Warner Bros., debuted at No. 3 on both charts after earning more than $175 million in U.S. theaters. Nielsen data shows that despite the higher box office gross, the film only sold 84.4% as many units as “John Wick: Chapter 2.”

Twentieth Century Fox’s “Logan,” the latest in the “X-Men” franchise, slipped to No. 4, also on both charts, from No. 2 the prior week.

Rounding out the top five on the overall disc sales chart was “The Shack,” a psychological drama from Lionsgate that debuted at No. 2 two weeks earlier.

On the Blu-ray Disc chart, Warner’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” again took the No. 5 spot for the second consecutive week.

John Wick: Chapter 2” generated 64% of its first-week sales from Blu-ray Disc, compared to 60% for the first film in the series. The “Lego Batman Movie” also generated 64% of its first-week sales from Blu-ray.

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week, “John Wick: Chapter 2” also debuted at No. 1, giving Lionsgate a rare triple-chart victory.

Warner’s “Fist Fight,” the previous week’s top rental, slipped to No. 3, while “Beauty and the Beast” stayed at No. 2.

Rounding out the top five were two Universal Pictures films, “A Dogs Purpose” at No. 4 (the same as the previous week) and “Fifty Shades Darker” at No. 5 (down from No. 3).

Thomas K. Arnold is Editorial Director of Home Media Magazine.

Jeff Bridges Brings Guidance in First Trailer for Marc Webb’s ‘Only Living Boy in New York’

When you aren’t carrying the weight of a superhero tentpole franchise on your shoulders, it turns out you can get a whole lot more done. Following the Chris Evans-led Gifted in April, Marc Webb‘s second film of 2017 will be arriving just a few months after in August with The Only Living Boy in New York. Ahead of the release Amazon Studios have now unveiled the first trailer.

Scripted by Allan Loeb (who is on some sort of unfortunate streak with The Space Between Us, Collateral Beauty, So Undercover, Here Comes the Boom, Rock of Ages, and, well, the list goes on…), hopefully this one is an uptick for the writer, even if the trailer sells a fairly chintzy feel-good dramedy — one that seems to be skipping a festival debut. Starring Kate Beckinsale, Pierce Brosnan, Kiersey Clemons, Cynthia Nixon, Callum Turner, and Jeff Bridges, check out the trailer below.

‘Resident Evil,’ ‘xXx’ Sequels Take Top Spots on Disc Sales Charts
Two new releases, both sequels, snagged the two top spots on the national home video sales charts for the week ended May 21.

Sony Pictures’ “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” the sixth film in the movie series based on the survival horror video game franchise, topped the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, despite a box office of less than $27 million.

Paramount’s “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” the third installment in the action series, debuted at No. 1 on Npd VideoScan’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

On the overall disc sales chart, “Xander Cage” bowed at No. 2, with 93% as many total unit sales as “The Final Chapter,” which debuted at No. 2 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. Npd data shows that “The Final Chapter” generated 53% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, compared to 58% for “Xander Cage.”

Film Review: ‘Everything, Everything’ Offers Close to Nothing, Nothing

Chicago – I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the target audience for these stock young adult romance novels. Aside from the odd fascination and romanticization of teenage death and terminal illness, these stories feel trite and much closer to fantasy than anything real or plausible. This is what the film “Everything, Everything” brings to the table, which essentially translates to Nothing, Nothing.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

I am patient and empathetic. I always try to understand another person’s point of view or outlook especially when it doesn’t mirror my own. Going into every film with an open mind is the only way to truly open yourself to the experience it is trying to impart. I didn’t know anything when going into “Everything, Everything” but it soon became clear that I actually knew exactly how the story was going to progress after the first ten minutes. This

'Alien: Covenant' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Duke it Out for Weekend Box Office #1

'Alien: Covenant' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Duke it Out for Weekend Box Office #1
This weekend could feature a little excitement at the top of the box office as Fox debuts Alien: Covenant into theaters domestically where it hopes to end the the two week reign of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at the top of the box office and depending on who you ask it could go either way. Fox will also release the fourth film in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, and Warner Bros. is releasing Everything, Everything, based on the best-selling novel of the same name, hoping to find some of the magic they found last year in Me Before You. Starting with the battle between Alien: Covenant and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, we're currently anticipating a #1 finish for what is effectively now the eighth film in the Alien franchise. Covenant is a sequel to 2012's Prometheus, which is

The New ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Trailer Is Out of this World

I’ll admit it. I haven’t always been a “good nerd.” Despite loving just about everything Sci-Fi – despite practically living off of the Sci-Fi channel back when it was actually called “the Sci-Fi Channel” – I have never been able to bring myself to care about Star Trek. While, like everybody else and their mother, I love the rebooted movies, the franchise’s original continuity was just something I could never get into. When I was old enough to realize that Patrick Stewart was awesome, I tried getting into The Next Generation. When the new movies came out, I tried getting

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Blow Out (Brian De Palma)

In a career fixated on the machinations of filmmaking presented through both a carnal and political eye, Brian De Palma’s fascinations converged idyllically with Blow Out. In his ode to the conceit of Blow UpMichelangelo Antonioni’s deeply influential English-language debut, released 15 years prior — as well as the aural intrigue of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation, De Palma constructs a conspiracy
