When it comes to our weekly box office prediction contest, we usual pick the obvious number one film as the target film. When there is no obvious number one, we usually pick the film that is opening the widest. However, this week that film is opening on Wednesday, so we are going with The House Bunny instead. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of The House Bunny.
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 Just Add Water on DVD and Affinity on DVD, as well as Pete Seeger: The Power of Song on DVD.
Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will also win a copy of Just Add Water on DVD and Affinity on DVD, as well as The Year My Parents Went on Vacation on DVD.
Finally, one additional entrant will be chosen and they will win the third copy of Affinity on DVD.
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

Another week without a first-run release that deserves serious consideration for the DVD Pick of the Week award. This means we are left looking at special editions, limited releases, and TV on DVD sets for the best of the week. Sadly there are not a lot of contenders here either. Batman Begins on Blu-ray Standard Edition or Limited Edition is certainly worth picking up, but it is mostly just a port of the HD DVD release and I was hoping for more (like having the extras in High Definition). The Monk / Psych two-pack offers two great shows for a reasonable price, but I'm not sure it's award-worthy. The best this week has to offer is Stargate Atlantis - Season Four - Buy from Amazon, and it is this week's DVD Pick of the Week.

Another busy week, but one that feels loaded with quantity and low on quality. None of the first run releases stand out and there's precious little else to make up. That's not to say there are no DVDs worth buying, as there are. My recommended list includes Burn Notice - Season One - Buy from Amazon, Classe Tous Risques - Criterion Collection - Buy from Amazon, Popeye the Sailor - 1938-1940 - Volume 2 - Buy from Amazon, and Men in Black - Special Edition - Blu-ray - Buy from Amazon, to name more than a few. However, none struck me as qualifiers for DVD Pick of the Week.
