New DVD Releases.

There were two new releases this week based on true stories. The first one was a baseball tale, Moneyball, which tells how Billy Beane had success with the Oakland A's, using what he called sabermetrics. I don't fully understand how it works, but is a way of building a winning team in a small town market. The fact that Brad Pitt starred in this movie helped it to gross $75,267,105 and it is rated a 7.8 on the IMDB.

I have not yet looked into the story that Killer Elite was based on. The movie definitely has star power, with Jason Stratham, Robert DeNiro, and Clive Owen. That, however, did not translate into a box office blockbuster. As it only brought in $25,124,966 at is rated a 6.6 on the IMDB.

What's Your Number only brought in $14,011,084 and is rated a 5.6 on the IMDB.

The Scorpion King 3:Battle For Redemption was a direct to DVD release. This is the second sequel to the Scorpion King to be released straight on DVD. I passed on the first one, and I intend to pass on this one to.
