There are many films that seem to bypass making any great waves at the cinema and quite simply end up almost straight on DVD. There seems to be no pattern of what these films are about or who stars in them.
They could be on the subject of just about anything from action films to period dramas to freephone 0800 numbers, but that is not the most important thing about them. In fact, the question to ask yourself should be whether these films are any good since they seem to have escaped mainstream criticism and acclaim and gone straight to DVD?
Many see this as a failing in the quality of the film and you see many a DVD piled high in the bargain baskets at the lowest prices. (more...)
