It's still a slow time of year for home market releases. It's too late for the Christmas shopping rush, while it is still too early for Awards Season releases to come out. There are a few limited releases, direct-to-DVD releases, TV on DVD releases, and catalogue titles that are of interest, but the best of the best is Zombieland. While both formats are worth checking out, the Blu-ray is the Pick of the Week.

B-Girl is writer / director Emily Dell's feature-length debut and it is based on a short film of the same name that she made in 2004, which also starred Jules Urich.
I am a neophyte when it comes to Breaking, but I have seen a lot of movies about athletic competitions in general, and dancing in particular.
So this movie has two obstacles to overcome: my lack of knowledge of breaking and my over-familiarity with dance movie clichés.
Will it be able to stand out?
If not, will it at least be able to entertain?

It's a soft week at the top, as the biggest release of the week is Michael Jackson's This Is It. There are a few other wide releases hitting the home market as well, but all the rest were box office disappointments of varying degrees. This Is It is a good movie and the DVD / Blu-ray are worth picking up, but they are not Pick of the Week material. For that we have to look to a smaller Canadian film, Pontypool, which earned excellent reviews while the DVD gets a rarely-awarded Puck of the Week.
