We're still in that no-man's land for the home market: it's way too late to take advantage of the Christmas shopping season and it's still too early for most Awards Season releases to be on shelves.
There are a few wide releases coming out this week, but only one of them, The Informant!, is worth buying on either DVD or Blu-ray. The best release of the week, and the winner of our Pick of the Week honor, is The Damned United, which is worth picking up on DVD or Blu-ray. Meanwhile, Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day - Blu-ray earns the coveted and rarely-awarded Puck of the Week.

Trailer Park Boys started in 2001 up here in Canada and became a cult hit with its mockumentary style focusing on three trailer park residents: Julian, Ricky, and Bubbles. After seven seasons, various TV specials, and a previous movie, the franchise finally ends with Countdown to Liquor Day. Hardcore fans of the TV series have probably already pre-ordered the movie, but will it work for more causal fans? What about those who have not seen the show previously?
