The Hunger Games dominated the Blu-ray Sales Chart during its first full week on the home market. It saw its sales numbers grow a little bit to 1.75 million units / $34.99 million for the week giving it totals of 3.42 million units / $68.32 million. It is already in the top ten best-selling Blu-rays of all time and the best-selling Blu-ray of the year. It likely won't last in first place for long, as The Avengers is coming out soon and should be record-breaking on Blu-ray.

It is an amazing week on the home market, if you count The Hunger Games. That film made its DVD and Blu-ray debut on Saturday, so it didn't quite come out this week, but it is still selling well. The best-selling Tuesday release was NCIS: Season Nine - Buy from Amazon, while the top five is dominated by Blu-ray catalog releases. I think Bernie comes close to being a Pick of the Week Contender and A Separation is even better, but I'm going with The Hunger Games as top pick.

From 1994 with the release of The Return of Jafar to 2008 with the release of The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning, Disney made about 30 Direct-to-DVD animated films. Most were terrible. Some were so bad that they made you retroactively like the original film a little less. Is Lady and the Tramp 2: Scamp's Adventure one of the rare exceptions? Or is it among the many cheap cash grabs?
