On the surface this is a big week for DVDs, but there's a lot of chaff and not much wheat. However, there are several releases that rate a purchase or higher including this week's DVD Pick of the Week, Animaniacs - Volume 1
and Pinky and the Brain - Volume 1
, both of which are perfect for kids and adults alike. One last note, both Blackballed: The Bobby Duke Story
- Buy from Amazon
and Deck Dogz
will be featured next week in our box office prediction contest.

Usually there is one film that looks like it could breakout of its limited release and score some mainstream success, maybe. Some weeks no film has a real chance at escaping its art house origins. This week, there are three such films. However, while this is a bounty for moviegoers, the competition could hurt the films.

Back to normal levels of traffic on this list, but like last week there's not an over abundance of huge sites on this week's list. I hope that changes soon as the summer box office season is just around the corner. The best of the bunch this week is Hard Candy
- Official Site
, which has been slowly growing for months.
