There were more than ten new releases to reach the top 30 on this week's sales chart, including the first summer blockbuster to reach the home market. That film, X-Men Origins - Wolverine, took top spot with a massive 2.42 million units and $40.20 million in consumer spending at retail in its opening week.

The Christmas shopping season starts early this year, as it seems to do every year. Only 15 days into September we have the first summer blockbuster of the year coming out. While X-Men Origins - Wolverine will easily be the biggest release of the week, it won't be the best. I think the best selections out there are from the TV on DVD categories, which is common this time of year, and I would rank Sanctuary - Season One and Transformers - Season Two - Volume One as the best of the best and both are my DVD Picks of the Week. There are a large number of spotlight reviews, including a trio that arrived late, so the list had to be split into two. The second part can be found here.
