It's a big list this week with nearly 50 DVDs here (including a few that are late reviews). This includes this year's big Oscar winner, Slumdog Millionaire, which is coming out on DVD and Blu-ray. Also coming out this week is two foreign language thrillers: Tell No One on DVD and Blu-ray, and Timecrimes on DVD. All three are worth picking up. In fact, all three are DVD Picks of the Week. With so many releases, it comes as no surprise that this week's list has to be split into two, with the second part found here.

It's Friday. That must mean we have a ton of prizes to give away and another box office prediction contest to do it. In order to win this one, one must simply predict Drillbit Taylor's three-day, opening weekend box office.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win Suburban Girl on DVD and Dedication on DVD.
Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win General Hospital: Night Shift - The Complete First Season on DVD.
Additionally, both the above winners will also take home The Darjeeling Limited on DVD
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

Another week without a marquee first run release.
There are three movies that had wide releases in theaters on the list, which is not an abnormally low number, but not one of them is even worth renting.
However, there are some limited releases, classic releases and TV-on-DVD releases that are certainly worth checking out.
The best of these is The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters - Buy from Amazon - which is our DVD Pick of the Week.

A pair of new releases topped the rental chart with Good Luck Chuck edging out Mr. Woodcock $11.61 million to $10.01 million.

The early year doldrums continue on the home market front. Even though there are plenty of releases, including eight spotlight reviews, there are none that really jump out as Contenders for DVD Pick of the Week. Family Guy - Blue Harvest Special Edition could be called the best of a weak bunch, but odds are everything the disc will be included in a future release that will be a lot more competitively priced.
(On the other hand, if you want the cool physical extras, grab the Limited Edition release.)

This week's round of new movie release information contains the announcement for Indiana Jones 4 and more.

It's a much busier week this week including several sites that I found through e-mails. Thanks for the tips. (On a side note, if you sent me an e-mail regarding a movie site and I forgot it, please send it again. It was a big list this week and I'm almost positive one or two sites slipped between the cracks.) Unfortunately, while there are plenty of sites on this week's list, there's not a lot of top notch ones. The movie on this list that made me the most excited was The Simpsons Movie
, and that one doesn't even have an official movie site, just the teaser trailer
