Alvy Singer is one of Manhattan's most brilliant comedians, but when it comes to romance, his delivery needs a little work. Introduced by his best friend, Rob, Alvy falls in love with the ditzy but delightful nightclub singer Annie Hall. When Alvy's own insecurities sabotage the affair, Annie is forced to leave Alvy for a new life - and lover - in Los Angeles. Knowing he may have lost Annie forever, Alvy's willing to go to any lengths - even driving L.A.'s freeways - to recapture the only thing that ever mattered...true love.

The biggest release of the week on the home market is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1, which comes out on DVD and Blu-ray ... on Saturday. So you still have a few more days to wait. As for the best release of the week, that's Lady and the Tramp, which is making its Blu-ray and is our Pick of the Week.

Woody Allen had the biggest hit in his career this year with Midnight in Paris (in terms of raw dollars, not ticket sales). It just picked up several Oscar nominations and there's a chance it could win. It makes perfect sense with the publicity surrounding that film to release some of his older films on Blu-ray. Recently Annie Hall and Manhattan came out on high definition, but have they aged well? And are the Blu-rays worth picking up?

The widest release of next week is Journey 2: The Mysterious Island; however, I think Safe House will have the biggest opening weekend of the four wide releases / re-releases. As such, it is the target film in this week's Box Office Prediction Contest. Meanwhile, since our Oscar Prediction contest begins next week, this week's prizes are two films that battled for Oscar glory in the past. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for Safe House.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a copy of Annie Hall on Blu-ray.
Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a copy of Manhattan of Blu-ray.
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

There are three first run releases of note this week, including an Awards Season player, 50/50; the latest installment in a perennial horror franchise, Paranormal Activity 3; and big budget family film, Real Steel. Of those three, 50/50 is the best and a contender for Pick of the Week. Other contenders include Godzilla: The Criterion Collection on Blu-ray and Wings on Blu-ray. However, I'm going with a late arrival: Moneyball on Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack.
