Technical difficulties with Amazon's site meant this column was a lot harder to get done than usual. However, I won't hold that against this week's releases, and there are a number that are worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week from practically every category. TV on DVD has Andy Richter Controls the Universe - The Complete Series, from the classics we have The Odd Couple - Centennial Collection, from new releases we have Bolt - Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, Blu-ray offers us James Bond Blu-ray Collection - Volume 3. We even have a late entry, as Let the Right One In - Blu-ray arrived. All five are worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week, but if I was forced to chose just one, Bolt - Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack would probably please the most people. After a couple of "slow" weeks, we are back to splitting the column into two parts.
The first part can be found here.

Only two films topped $10,000 on the Per Theater Chart, and both of them were 3D concert releases. Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour led the way with a record-setting average of $45,561, which is the most earned by any film playing in more than 100 theaters.
U2 3D also topped $10,000 with $11,720, which was down just over 25% and that bodes well for its expansion next week.

Like most weeks this year, I was not wowed by any of the sites for this week's releases. Most could not rise above effective or average. Hopefully this trend will change soon as we get out of the early year doldrums.

A soft week for limited releases with only one film, Caramel, that seems likely to score with moviegoers. And even that film has an uphill battle.
