With a lot of competition from summer blockbusters, it comes as no surprise that the quality and quantity of releases is way down this week. The best selling release is Daria: The Complete Series, which is also clearly the Pick of the Week.

Legend of the Tsunami Warrior, a.k.a. Queens of Langkasuka, a.k.a. Puen yai jom salad, is a fantasy pirate movie from Thailand, which at least makes it a bit unique. The film cost 140 million baht to make, which works out to about $4.34 million American using today's exchange rate. While that is tiny for a Hollywood film, it is huge for a Thai film, as earning 140 million baht at the box office is considered a blockbuster. Will the historical epic appeal to audiences here, or will something be lost in translation?
