This week, among the many DVD / Blu-ray releases, is what could be the Best Picture Oscar winner. However, after The Social Network, there's quite a drop-off in quality. There are a few that are worth checking out, as well as a couple that are worth picking up, but there's no competition for The Social Network's Two-Disc DVD or Blu-ray for Pick of the Week.

As expected, Up dominated new releases on this week's sales chart as it earned first place with $88.13 million in consumer spending at retail and 5.30 million units.
This instantly places it fourth on the overall chart for 2009.

The same two new releases that topped the sales chart this week also topped the rental chart, although they were in the opposite order.
The Ugly Truth took first place with more than 50% more rentals than Up.

A Serious Man showed the competition who was serious by earning first place on the per theater chart earning an average of $41,890 in six theaters. Paranormal Activity climbed into the $10,000 club with a sophomore average of $16,129 and now there's a push to get it into 1000 theaters nationwide. More Than a Game earned an average of more than $10,000, $13,067 to be precise, placing third in the process. Coco Before Chanel repeated in the $10,000 club with an average of $12,878, but it will need some strong word-of-mouth if it wants to stay they one more week.

Crude topped the per theater charts with $16,595 in its one theater. The overall box office leader, I Can Do Bad All By Myself, also topped the $10,000 mark with an average of $10,398.

My One and Only opened on top of the per theater chart with an average of $14,673 in four theaters. This is a better start than expected for the film. The only other member of the $10,000 club was the overall box office champion, Inglourious Basterds, which opened with an average of $12,024.

Quentin Tarantino enjoyed the best opening of his career over the weekend, according to Weinstein Co.'s estimate released on Sunday morning.
With $37.6 million, the movie tops his previous best, which is either Sin City (if you count his single scene as a legitimate directing credit) or Kill Bill: Volume 2, depending on your perspective.
Either way, it's an impressive debut for a late Summer movie.

It's an awkward time of year for limited releases. It's too late to grab a slice of the summer box office, but too soon for Awards Season buzz. That's not to say there are not great films coming out this week, in fact, there are two films that are earning better than 80% positive reviews: Fifty Dead Man Walking and World's Greatest Dad. But quality aside, there's little hope that any of these movies will be breakout hits.
