The trailing end of the winter blockbuster releases are hitting the home market over the next month. This week we have two $200 million hits, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel and Sherlock Holmes. There are also a few Oscar nominated movies: An Education and The Baader Meinhof Complex. Three of these four are worth picking up (as are a number of smaller releases) but none scream Pick of the Week.

The Hurt Locker did something most films about the Iraq War have not been able to do: succeed at the box office.
During its opening weekend it earned close to $150,000 in just four theaters for an average of $36,338.
The overall number one film, Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen, managed second place with an average of $25,736, and nearly double that since Wednesday.
Meanwhile, last week's number one film on the per theater average, Whatever Works, landed in third with $10,280.
