This week there are a couple massive releases on the home market. 12 Years a Slave just earned the Best Picture Oscar, so it's the perfect time to release it on DVD or Blu-ray. The biggest release of the week is The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but it doesn't come out on DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack till Friday, so I will get the review online in a couple of days. On the flip side, those two releases seem to have scared away most of the competition, because there's almost nothing else worth talking about. (There's an exercise video in the top five new releases on Amazon.com. That almost never happens.) As for the Pick of the Week, it's 12 Years a Slave on Blu-ray. It's not the only release coming out on Tuesday that's worth buying. I recommend picking up Girl Rising on DVD as well, while Venture Bros.: Season Five on DVD or Blu-ray is also worth the money.

Girl Rising is a documentary that opened last March. Its opening weekend per theater average was only mixed, but it stuck around in theaters long enough to top $1 million. That's a great run for a documentary. Is it also one of the better documentaries I've seen during the past year?

February ends with two wide releases, Son of God and Non-Stop. Son of God is a real wildcard and it could tap into the churchgoing demographic and become a surprise hit. On the other hand, since it is just a re-cut of a TV mini-series that its target audience got to see for free last year, it could flop. Non-Stop is much more likely to be the big hit of the weekend and should finally end The LEGO Movie's reign on top. I'm not sure where it will fit with the other Liam Neeson early year movies, but it should be the number one film during its opening weekend, making it the clear choice for the target film for this week's box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for Non-Stop.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), regardless if they go over or not, will win a copy of Girl Rising on DVD.
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!
