The selection of home market releases is rather soft this week. Sure, Cars 2 was a major hit at the box office, but it is the only major hit on this week's list. The best selling TV on DVD release is Californication, which is a cable show, while the top ten selling titles according to Amazon.com include limited releases, catalogue titles and direct-to-DVD releases. There are more second-tier Christmas releases than any other type of release. There are far fewer titles that are worth picking up than last week, and the the Pick of the Week contenders are even more limited. Transformers: Beast Wars comes out on a Complete Series Collection and that could be Pick of the Week material, but I'm still waiting for the screener.

I have a simple rule: No Christmas releases before Halloween. It's A Wonderful Life Blu-ray Gift Set is coming out on November 1st, making it a perfectly timed release. However, this is not the first time the film has been released on Blu-ray. Is it worth picking up if you don't already have it? Is it worth the upgrade?
