The first Tuesday of the month is usually the busiest when it comes to DVD releases, and while there are certainly more releases coming out tomorrow than there are in the next two weeks, it is not as busy as I would like when it comes to top notch releases. At first glance there are only two that are even contenders for the DVD pick of the week, including Brokeback Mountain
- Buy from Amazon
and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
- Collector's Edition
. But while there are a couple of DVDs that are worth picking up, none make it to the level of DVD Pick of the Week. (And a quick glance at the coming weeks suggest there might not be one till the end of the month.) One last note, if you are interested in picking up Narnia

Another week, another couple of Oscar contenders are being released into theatres. But there are also some other films include the very imaginative MirrorMask and the poorly marketed Duma that are worth checking out.
