It's a slow week by nearly every measure: big releases, overall quality, overall quantity, spotlight reviews, etc. This is great news for me since recently a package arrived with several DVDs, all of which were late. I'm not quite completely caught up, but I am very close. As for this week's releases, there were only a handful of releases that were even in contention for DVD Pick of the Week. Both The Savages - DVD and The Orphanage - DVD or Blu-ray earned excellent reviews, but their home market releases were only average. Cloverfield - DVD wasn't as good a movie, but the DVD had the best combination of movie quality and special features. The specter of a Blu-ray release notwithstanding, it is the DVD Pick of the Week.

It's the final weekend before the summer blockbuster season starts and the target film is Baby Mama. I should have given away Inside on DVD this week and not last week. It would have been a perfect, if amazingly twisted connection. However, the prizes this week are excellent. In order to win, one must simply predict Baby Mama's three-day, opening weekend box office.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a Baby Mama prize pack including T-shirt, poster, hat, etc., as well as Flash Point 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 The Upright Citizens Brigade: Asssscat! and Comic Relief: The Greatest... and the Latest.
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!
