We are getting back to normal for the home market releases. There are no major first run releases, but one of the biggest limited releases of 2015 hits the home market. Sicario earned nearly $50 million after starting in limited release and the Blu-ray Combo Pack is the Pick of the Week. It wasn't the only contender for that honor, as Deathgasm (DVD or Blu-ray) and Infinitely Polar Bear (DVD or Blu-ray) were also in contention.

Star Trek: The Next Generation comes to an end with All Good Things..., the two-hour series finale. Each of the past four seasons had a two-part storyarc that was released as a separate Blu-ray to the full-season Blu-ray. It makes sense to give this show's series finale a proper Blu-ray of its own, assuming the series ended on a high note. Is that the case? If so, does the Blu-ray do it justice?

Star Trek: The Next Generation's Blu-ray run ended this month. I already mentioned the Blu-ray as a possible holiday gift, but since I've reviewed every other season of this series, I thought it would be strange not to do a full featured review as well. Season seven is widely regarded as the worst season since season two, but it is as bad as that? Or are there still enough solid episodes that fans will want to complete their collection?

This is the penultimate season for Star Trek: The Next Generation and the end of what most people would call the golden age of the seasons. (Season seven wasn't bad. It was better than the first two seasons, but it was certainly not as good as seasons three through six.) So what are the highlights of season six? Are there many lowlights? And is the Blu-ray worth upgrading to?

It's a busy week with eight or so first-run releases. (It depends on if you count the The Sound of Music Live! as a first-run release.) However, none of them were big hits at the box office. Some of them made enough money to break even sometime on the home market, others struggled more than that, but none were breakout hits. Some of these are still worth picking up. For others, there's a reason they struggled. There are also a few TV on DVD releases this week that are worth picking up, as well as a few limited releases that are strong. All in all, it's a good week on the home market with many DVD and Blu-rays that are worth picking up, some of which I'm looking forward to reviewing... when they show up. This time of year, getting screeners on time tends to be a little harder. I think Burn Notice: Season Seven is the top selection, but I'll have to wait for the screener to make sure. On a side note, next Tuesday is Christmas eve, so there won't be a DVD and Blu-ray Release report. There's only four films worth talking about anyway, so I'm including them on this list. Of next week's films, More Than Honey on DVD or Blu-ray is the Pick of Next Week.

Star Trek: The Next Generation is one of the most successful syndicated shows of all time. It ran for seven seasons and was seen by millions every week. I've had a chance to review all three previous seasons. Season one was mostly mediocre, while season two had better highs, but worse lows. It was season three where the show reached its full potential. Is season four just as good? Is it even better? Or does it slip a little in quality?

Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Best of Both Worlds is widely considered the best episode in the show's seven-year run. In fact, it is considered one of the ten best episodes in the franchise's history. It is coming out as a special engagement tonight and on a special Blu-ray on Tuesday. Is it worth checking out? Is it worth buying? Or should you stick to the full season sets and wait till season four comes out on Blu-ray to get both parts?

Star Trek: The Next Generation ran for seven seasons and while the first two seasons were mixed, season three is widely regarded at the beginning of the classic period. Is this true? Or is it only good when compared to the first two seasons?

This is the third time I've gotten a chance to review a DVD from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which is the fourth generation in the long running franchise. The earlier shows were aimed at young girls and were written in such a way that there was almost no crossover appeal. In this version, there's more complex characters and there's more conflict, which helps it appeal to more people. Not only can young girls watch the show for the several strong female characters, but young boys can watch the show for the cool villains like Discord. The latest DVD, Adventures in the Crystal Empire, begins with the Season Three opener, but includes a few more episodes.

Star Trek: The Next Generation lasted for seven seasons and for much of its run, it was considered the best Sci-fi series of its day. However, season one wasn't among its best seasons. In fact, it wasn't until the fifth / sixth episode, Where No One Has Gone Before, till we got a good episode and there are only about six others that are good. Granted, a lot of shows take a little while to find their footing. So does the show begin to shine in Season Two? Or does it take a step back? What about extras and the technical presentation? Do they warrant the high price?
