It's not a great week for DVD releases.
While there are plenty worth talking about, few combine a high quality movie with top-notch extras.
Because of this, it was hard to pick a DVD Pick of the Week.
Sure, the two spotlight films on this week's list, Shut Up and Sing - Buy from Amazon and The Prestige - Buy from Amazon, are great, but the DVDs leave a lot to be desired.
So were the two Canadian entries, Trailer Park Boys - Buy from Amazon.ca and C.R.A.Z.Y. - Buy from Amazon.
In many ways Gandhi - Two-Disc Special Edition - Buy from Amazon was the best choice on this week's list, but I'm going with Trailer Park Boys - Buy from Amazon.ca (and I also recommend the massive box set as well).
You may call this is a result of a pro-Canada bias, and you would be right.
But at least I'm up front about it.

The Science of Sleep started its theatrical run atop the per theatre charts with nearly $350,000 in 14 theatres for an average of $24,852. The studio hopes to expand the film into 200 theatres this weekend but it is too soon to tell if the film will be able to attract an audience outside the art house circuit.
Second place went to American Hardcore as the documentary took in $18,102 in its lone theatre. Next up were a pair of holdovers with Old Joy earning $17,556 in one theatre, which is more than it made during its entire, nearly month-long release. Finally, Keeping Mum fell just 25.67% to just over $20,000 in 2 theatres for an average of $10,077.

Slow week with just over half a dozen sites on the list. Of them, Renaissance
- Official Site
is clearly the best with a few others showing promise.

With an eclectic mix of movies opening in limited release this week, there's should be something for everyone here. However, none seem to have what it takes to escape the limited release label and earn some mainstream success, but a couple Renaissance
and The Science of Sleep
, could surprise.
