It's a rather mixed week on the home market. Granted, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 is coming out this week, but it doesn't make its home market debut till Friday. Also, after the Harry Potter releases, there's a huge drop in quality. Given the issue with the Harry Potter releases, it's best to wait till next year and grab the ultimate editions. I'm not sure there's anything here that rises to the level of Pick of the Week. In the end I went with Captain America: The First Avenger on Blu-ray Combo Pack, even though it didn't come out this week. However, the screener was late and it is the best release on this week's list.

When it comes to recommending movies, there are high quality films that win awards and will be remembered for years as a high water mark of cinema history. Then there are guilty pleasures. These are films that you know are going for cheaper entertainment. The Cannonball Run is a guilty pleasure. I really liked this film when I saw it for the first time after it came out on the home market, but it has been about two decades since I've seen the movie. I'm hoping I can I still enjoy the film as a guilty pleasure. I doubt I will suddenly think the film is Oscar-worthy, but I'm a little worried after watching the film for the first time since I was a teenager, I'll wonder what the hell I was thinking back then.
