Every week films get a second chance at success from the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success. Here is a list of wide releases, limited releases, classics and a few from the growing TV on DVD section. Yet another bad week for first-run releases, in fact, there's not a single wide release I'll be picking up till August. This week the best of the bunch is again from the TV on DVD selection, but surprisingly it isn't a full season set. Normally I refuse to buy TV on DVD, but I'll make an exception for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
- Indecision 2004 - Buy from Amazon
, which is easily the DVD pick of the week.

. Moving on. Just like the wide releases, this is a very busy week for limited releases and while there are a couple of films earning impressive reviews, most are sub-par at best.
