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.

Wrong Side of Town is written and directed by David DeFalco and if you don't know that name, I'm not surprised. The last movie he made was Chaos, a movie that was singled out by some as the worst movie ever made. And not just because it was poorly made, but because it was the lowest form of torture porn around. This time he's made Wrong Side of Town, an action film about a dad trying to rescue his daughter. It's a genre that is not likely to win many awards, but it is also less likely to be as morally repugnant as his previous outings. Yes, that is damning it with faint praise, but going in my expectations were rather low.
