There were plenty of new releases
this week, but all but two missed the top 10. However, those two DVDs finished one-two on the charts. Crank
topped The Illusionist
$6.09 million to $5.59 million.

It's a strange week for DVD releases. On the one hand, there's not a big selection of releases coming out this week. On the other hand, half the ones on this list are worth adding to your DVD collection.
Back to the original hand, none are really worthy of DVD Pick of the Week. Idiocracy - Buy from Amazon is a good movie, but has no where near the extras needed.
The Illusionist - Buy from Amazon comes close but still falls just short.
MI-5 - Volume 4 - Buy from Amazon is a great package, but at a price that will scare off casual fans.
In the end, while I rated a lot of DVDs as buys, none are worth the DVD Pick of the Week.

It's a big week for limited releases, not so much in terms of raw numbers, but in terms of theatres. There are two films opening in more than 100 theatres each as well as another opening in nearly 3-dozen theaters. However, it is a much narrower release, This Film is Not Yet Rated
, that has the best potential to for expansion.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, September is the worst month of the year for movies.
Not only are there usually very few hits released at this time of year, but the average is dragged way down by the large number of movies simply dumped on the market.
This year the September dumping ground doesn't look quite as bad as years past.
In fact, several low-level hits and maybe even an Oscar contender are opening wide.
However, those few bright spots will be buried due to the sheer number of releases -- an average of 3 and a half films are opening wide each week.
