It's a strange week on the home market. There are not a lot of films on this week's list, but there are more first run releases than normal, while we are also moving into the summer TV schedule, so a lot of those shows are getting home market releases this week, in preparation for their upcoming seasons. The list is top-heavy, not very deep, and lacks contenders for for Pick of the Week. The Secret World of Arrietty is the best release and the Blu-ray looks amazing, but there are not a lot of extras to be found. Likewise, Sherlock: Season Two is a great show, but the DVD and Blu-ray don't have a lot of extras, plus the price-per-minute is rather high for a TV on DVD release. I have high hopes for The Woman in Black, but the screener is late. In the end I'm going with The Secret World of Arrietty, but the other two are Honorable Mentions.

High school comedies are a rather common genre in movies. They are rarely major hits, but because they are limited in scale, don't have expensive special effects, and hire up-and-coming actors instead of A-listers, they usually cost a fraction of what the average film costs. Some of these films can become lasting parts of the movie culture. Other times they are forgotten. Get Over It is mostly forgotten. Does it deserve this fate? Or should fans of the genre give it a try, now that it is coming out on a bargain DVD?
