It is a rather shallow week on the home market. Taken 2 should come away with an easy win, but after that, there's almost nothing that will reach the top 30 for the week. Also, Taken 2 is not Pick of the Week material. I don't know if there is anything that is truly Pick of the Week material. Wake in Fright comes the closest, but the DVD or Blu-ray is still late, I hate giving this title when I'm still waiting for the screener.

Love Me comes out on DVD and Blu-ray this week, and I wouldn't be surprised if most people reading this review have never heard of it. There are no reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, no official site (at least not that I could find) and very little online presence. I probably would have have given the film a pass when offered a chance to review it, but it stars Lindsey Shaw, who is most famous for Ned's Declassified School Guide and was also in 10 Things I Hate About You, which I previously reviewed. I liked her in that, so when offered the chance to review this film, I said yes, even though I knew nothing else about the movie. On the plus side, this does mean I get to go into the movie with almost no expectations.
