It's a strange week for home market releases. On the one hand, there are some terrific films that should do really well. On the other hand, after the top couple of titles, the quality of the releases plummets really fast. By the time we get outside of the top ten, we start to get mostly filler. The best film coming out this week is Schindler's List, which makes its Blu-ray debut this week. It is absolutely a must have; however, the Blu-ray is shovelware, which precludes it from being the Pick of the Week. The release that gets that honor is Wreck-It Ralph on either Blu-ray or 3D. It is worth paying the extra money for 3D, but not a lot of people have made the leap to 3D just yet.

There is one films that is opening wider than most limited releases, but there's also only one that is earning overwhelmingly positive reviews.

Warhammer 40,000, a spin-off of Warhammer, has been a popular table-top miniature game for nearly 25 years now dating back to 1987. The game has remained popular enough for a series of books to be published, and late last year the first movie, Ultramarines, was released as part of a two-disc collector's set. Will it appeal to fans of the game? Will it have crossover appeal?
