The first week of the year and this year starts the same way last year ends, without a whole lot of must have choices. Machete is topping the chart, and it's a good movie, but there are not enough extras on the DVD / Blu-ray to rate as Pick of the Week material. On the other hand, Howl's DVD and Blu-ray are loaded with extras, but the movie didn't live up to expectations with critics. After going over the list for a third time, I have to conclude that there are no Pick of the Week releases this time around. That should change next week.

Also known as, Hope & Redemption: The Lena Baker Story, this film tells the story of the only woman sentenced to death by electrocution in the state of Georgia. It stars Tichina Arnold , who is best known for her comedic roles in TV shows such as Everybody Hates Chris and Martin, so it is a different role than the ones we are used to seeing her in. It was filmed in 2008, release on DVD in 2009, and now it is being re-released at the beginning of 2011. For those who missed it the first time around, is it worth checking out now?
