Another week, another $300 million hit comes out on DVD, along with a few dozen other films and TV series.
While this week wasn't quite as busy as it has been for a few weeks, we still had plenty of contenders for DVD Pick of the Week.
This includes this week's winner, Close Encounters of the Third Kind - 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition - Blu-Ray, while a release from last week, Ratatouille - Blu-Ray, earns a belated honor.

The Bourne Ultimatum was the only film to top $10,000 on the per theater chart this week, earning an impressive $18,930, which was close to double its nearest competition.
But, while there was only one member of the $10,000 club, a few films came very close, including Becoming Jane with $9,721, which is even more impressive with a theater count of 100.
It is also more than enough to guarantee expansion.

Server upgrades went... less smoothly than anticipated, which delayed this column, but at least there are a huge number of sites to check out. Many of these sites are making their first appearance on the list while quite a few are making their last appearance. Unfortunately, while it's a big list, there are not many that are even close to being award worthy at the moment. 30 Days of Night - Official Site comes the closest, but I'm waiting for the missing features to be added before I make that decision.

It is documentary week this weekend, as we have six of them opening today.
Almost all of them are earning overwhelmingly positive reviews and a couple might even have some mainstream success in their future.
