Paradoxically, this is arguably the biggest week of the year on the home market, as well as one of the slowest. It is the biggest because it marks the release of Avatar on DVD and Blu-ray. However, it is also one of the slowest, because Avatar scared away a lot of other releases. Looking down the list of top sellers and it isn't long before you find busted Oscar bait, TV movies, Direct-to-DVD releases, etc. I expect records could be broken this week, but it is a top-heavy list. As for Pick of the Week contenders, Avatar is obviously a contender, but I'm holding off until the screener arrives.

Yet another A Direct-to-DVD release. This is the third such film in a row that I've reviewed. Four if you count Three Kingdoms, which was a foreign import, so there's mitigating circumstances there. Five if you count Tenderness, which only played in one theater for one week, so it was practically a direct-to-DVD offering. A lot of times these films were dumped onto the home market because they just didn't have what it takes to pull in moviegoers theatrically. But occasionally the direct-to-DVD market will produce a undiscovered gem. Can Peacock be one such film?
