According to Amazon, there are about 300 DVDs and Blu-ray being released or re-released this week and about half of them are Harry Potter releases. Well, maybe not, but it almost feels that way. The only one of these that is really worth picking up is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - Blu-ray; in fact, it is the DVD Pick of the Week. Also sharing that honor is The Cove on DVD, Julie & Julia on DVD or Blu-ray, and Lost - Season Five on Blu-ray. My bank account is going to take a big hit this week.

My One and Only opened on top of the per theater chart with an average of $14,673 in four theaters. This is a better start than expected for the film. The only other member of the $10,000 club was the overall box office champion, Inglourious Basterds, which opened with an average of $12,024.

It's an awkward time of year for limited releases. It's too late to grab a slice of the summer box office, but too soon for Awards Season buzz. That's not to say there are not great films coming out this week, in fact, there are two films that are earning better than 80% positive reviews: Fifty Dead Man Walking and World's Greatest Dad. But quality aside, there's little hope that any of these movies will be breakout hits.
