"End of Watch": top-selling DVD and Blu-ray in the United States

Jake Gyllenhaal's police drama "End of Watch" is the top-selling DVD and Blu-ray in the United States, Rentrak announced Monday.

Coming in at No. 2 on the DVD and Blu-ray sales chart for the week ending Jan. 27 is "Taken 2," followed by "Death Race 3: Inferno" at No. 3, "Pitch Perfect" at No. 4 and "The Possession" at No. 5. Rounding out the top tier are "Frankenweenie" at No. 6, "Looper" at No. 7, "Ted" at No. 8, "The Dark Knight Rises" at No. 9 and "Dredd" at No. 10.

One of the more underappreciated movies by audiences in 2012 was End of Watch (2012) from writer/director David Ayer. When the Academy Awards allowed only five Best Picture nominations, it was easier to accept that a certain movie “just isn’t a ‘Best Picture’ kind of movie.” Now, with ten available slots for nominations—and frustrating film-lovers the past two years by selecting only nine—everything decent is “snubbed”, especially independent films that were teased into believing they now had access. And of all snubbed films, End of Watch is near the top of the list and now available in DVD/Blu-ray. (You can read my analysis of the Oscar nominations and the top films of 2012.) I recommend it to you heartily as both good cinema for the film and good social insight in the story and special features. Source:
