It's a terrible week on the home market. There's not a lot in terms of top sellers, although The Great Gatsby should lead the way. The only first-run release is Pain and Gain, which will likely not sell a lot on the home market. There are a few TV on DVD releases to fill in the gaps, like The Walking Dead or Elementary; however, by the end of the first page of new releases on Amazon.com, we run into filler. As for Pick of the Week, the best is The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh on Blu-ray Combo Pack. I'm still waiting for the screener, but it is such a good movie and it is slow week that it is still Pick of the Week.

Elvis Presley made about 30 films in his career, most of which he was embarrassed about. Love Me Tender was the first film he was in, although he was definitely a supporting character and not the star. When it was first released, the critics were split on the film, but it was an instant hit with fans of the king. The film is now close to 60 years old, so the question is, has it aged well? Or is this film only good for a nostalgia trip for Elvis fans?
