It's a slow week on the home market; there are four first run wide releases on this week's list, which is not bad, but only one of those, The Ides of March, earned reviews that were even remotely good. Unfortunately, there are only a few smaller releases that are worth checking out, so it's a pretty shallow week as well. As far as Pick of the Week is concerned, The Ides of March on DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack win that honor, practically by default.

During the eleven year span from the release of Good Morning, Vietnam till the release of Patch Adams, Robin Williams was one of the biggest movie stars around. He was in eight films that reached $100 million domestically. He was also in more than a few bombs during that time, while his star power eventually declined when people grew a little tired of the repetitiveness of his schtick. It is this second point that is the most troubling for me. When looking back at his older work, will I be reminded of what made Robin William a big star? Or will it feel stale and dated?
