The dead zone on the home market continues with only three wide releases... well, two and a half wide releases, none of which matched expectations at the box office.
There's not even a lot of limited releases, catalog titles, or TV on DVD releases to compensate.
There are some, just not a lot.
My favorite title on this week's list is actually a late review: White Collar: Season One on DVD and Blu-ray.
Meanwhile, the two best new releases this week have a Canadian Connection, Degrassi: The Next Generations: Season 9 and NHL: Greatest Stanley Cup Moments, both of which earn Puck of the Week honors.

The dog days of summer continue on the home market.
The best selling release of the week is also one of the worst films of the year.
Also, there are not a lot of limited release / TV on DVD releases to pick up the pace, so the odds are that it will be a slow week in terms of sales.
Looking for a Pick of the Week contender, there are a couple of TV on DVD releases that are prime contenders, Psych: The Complete Fourth Season and Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XVIII.
Both are worth picking up, but I'm going with MST3K as the Pick of the Week.

Ninja's Creed, a.k.a., Royal Kill is notable for being Pat Morita's last film. Pat Morita died in 2005, but this film only managed a short engagement in an handful of theaters in 2009, while it is now coming out on DVD under a different name. It's hard to look at those facts and come away with high hopes for the movie. Perhaps lowered expectations are justified, or perhaps it will be a pleasant surprise.
