New releases played an important role on this week's rental charts, taking the top two spots. However, while The Happening and You Don't Mess With the Zohan finished one - two, Iron Man was very close behind in third.

There's only one saturation level opener next week and that film, Max Payne, is this week's target film. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Max Payne.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win Mother or Tears on DVD, Feast II - Sloppy Seconds on DVD, and Alvin and the Chipmunks - Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration 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 Inside the Actor's Studio with Robin Williams on DVD, as well as Alvin and the Chipmunks - Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration on DVD.
Finally, one additional entrant will be chosen at random to win Yo Gabba Gabba! - The Dancey Dance Bunch on DVD, as well as Alvin and the Chipmunks - Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration on DVD.
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

It's not a good week for first-run releases, as there's not a single one from that group that would get serious contention for DVD Pick of the Week. However there are a number of other contenders, including classic releases Sleeping Beauty - Two-Disc Platinum Edition - on Blu-ray and Ray Harryhausen - Ultimate Collector's Giftset on DVD or Blu-ray. There as also a couple of TV on DVD picks to look at like 30 Rock - Season Two and Robot Chicken - Season Three. The final release this week that I would like to give a shout out to is Jack Brooks - Monster Slayer on DVD. (Finally, there are a couple of late spotlight reviews that are worth picking up: NCIS - Season Five and Ghost Whisperer - Season Three.) One last note. While first run releases were weak, the overall list was long and the second part of my run-down can be found here.
