Seven spotlight reviews on this week's list, but only one for a DVD coming out on Tuesday. (Four are for screeners that arrived late, two are for ones that arrived early, while there are at least three on this week's list that may or may not show up shortly.)
The choices for DVD Pick of the Week are not plentiful, with Waltz with Bashir being the only real contender.
Despite coming out on both DVD and Blu-ray, the latter is overpriced compared to the former.

What could be the biggest movie of the year opens next weekend. Actually, Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen opens before the weekend, and, thanks to Independence Day, its opening weekend is extended, but we only care about the Friday to Sunday numbers.
In order to win our contest, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a copy of Baby on Board on Blu-ray, as well as El Dorado on DVD.
Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a copy of Morning Light on DVD and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance on DVD.
Remember - while the movie opens on Wednesday, we are only interested in the three-day weekend. That's Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so take that into account when sending in your predictions.
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

Summer might be the busiest time of the year at the box office, but it is the slowest on the home market. This week we have a couple of Summer TV series coming out on DVD, a few late stragglers from Awards Season '08, and an early surprise at the '09 box office.
However, while there are a few worth picking up, none jump out at me as obvious contenders for the DVD Pick of the Week.
