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 and a few from the growing TV on DVD section including this week's winner, Angel
- Season Five - Buy from Amazon
. However, there are also two other, limited releases worth picking up, but I recommend renting first. They are Donnie Darko
- The Director's Cut - Buy from Amazon
and The Motorcycle Diaries
- Buy from Amazon

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 and a few from the growing TV on DVD section including this week's winner, which we'll get to in a moment. This week is further evidence in the power of the growing TV on DVD market. There are nine shows making their debut on DVD. All-in-all there are 537 DVDs being released tomorrow, but it seems like 500 of them are re-releases. There was so much that any real gem was buried under an avalanche of dreck. Nothing stood out as a must have, but two limited releases, Before Sunset - Buy from Amazon and Robot Stories - Buy from Amazon are worth a rental.
