I hate this time for year, because of the holidays. Due to the five-day Thanksgiving long weekend and the Christmas shipping rush, screeners are even more likely to arrive late. Most of the prime releases I'm supposed to review are still on route. It makes it hard to keep up to date on reviews, plus it makes it really hard to figure out what the Pick of the Week should be. The Help is in contention, but I want to see the Blu-ray first. In the end, I went with the The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo: Extended Trilogy Box Set on Blu-ray.

The Three Investigators is a series of crime novels aimed at young teens that were first published in the 1960s and lasted until the 1980s, with more than 40 novels published. The Three Investigators in the Secret of Skeleton Island is the first of two films produced in the past few years. It was a German production and cost about $15 million to make, but sold less than a million tickets in its native market. It even got a theatrical release here. About five years after it was made it is finally coming out on DVD, but was it worth the wait?
