I'm getting tired of saying this, but it is a slow week on the home market. There is one prime release, Star Trek: The Next Generation: Season One on Blu-ray, which is currently leading this week's new releases, according to Amazon.com. The second best selling new release is Masterpiece Mystery: Inspector Lewis Series 5 on DVD. It's a good show, but it is a British Import and these rarely make an impact on the chart. Third best selling new release? Game of Thrones. This is the third or fourth time the first season of this TV show has been "released" on the home market. I don't know why they are doing this, but it is getting annoying. There are not a lot of contenders for Pick of the Week either. Jiro Dreams of Sushi on Blu-ray and Star Trek: The Next Generation are the two leading contenders. While ST:TNG became an amazing series, it started out weak, so Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the better choice, but both are easily worth picking up.

Dawn Riders is a remake of The Dawn Riders, a 1935 John Wayne Western. It is not among the best known or most beloved of The Duke's films, so remaking it shouldn't cause a major backlash. On the other hand, remaking won't come with a built in audience either. Is it worth checking out for fans of the genre? Or are there too many other Westerns that have come out recently that will overshadow this film?
