There's still a lull when it comes to first-run releases on the home market with no major, or even midlevel hits coming out this week. In fact, the best-selling release according to Amazon.com is Alice in Wonderland on Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack, which is a contender for Pick of the Week. The other major contender is Let Me In on Blu-ray, which failed to find an audience despite impressing critics almost as much as the original did. I'm going to give the honor to Let Me In, but both are worthy contenders.

The Traveler is a direct-to-DVD film starring Val Kilmer, who has made a career of starring in dozens of such films over the past decade or so. In fact, I've reviewed several of them and found them mostly lacking. On the other, when given the right script, he can still perform. Even when given a bad script, he can elevate the material. But will this film showcase his talents, or will he be the only laudable part of the movie?
