There are two themes this week. The first is Awards Season. There are no fewer than half a dozen Award Season players on this week's list, although one was a late review. Speaking of late reviews, that's the other theme on this week's list, as there are no fewer than eight releases on this week's list where I'm waiting for the screener to arrive. (This includes Wizards which arrived on Monday; however, screeners need to arrive by Friday if I'm to get the review done on time.) Unfortunately, there's a lot of crossover among these two groups and a few Pick of the Week candidates are late. For instance, My Week with Marilyn and Melancholia fit into both groups. Other screeners I'm waiting for that could be Pick of the Week are Wallace & Gromit: World of Invention and the aforementioned Wizards: 35th Anniversary Blu-ray, while The Guild: Season Five was up for that honor as well. However, in the end I went with The Descendants on Blu-ray Combo Pack.

Stuck Between Stations opened in limited release in November, but despite earning good reviews, it went nowhere at the box office. It doesn't have a lot of star power, while it's the directorial debut for Brady Kiernan, and the first script for either of the co-writers, Sam Rosen and Nat Bennett, so the odds were stacked against the film. But now that it is coming out on the home market, will it find a more receptive audience?

It's the first week of November, which should be the start of Awards Season. However, there are not a lot of films that are really wowing critics. In fact, there are more films missing the overall positive level than there are earning award-worthy reviews. The Last Rites of Joe May is the best bet and, if you don't live in New York, try and catch it on Video on Demand. And, if you live up north in Canada, try and get to a showing of Billy Bishop Goes to War.
