While summer is usually the slowest time of the year on the home market, this week is fantastic with a lot of prime releases, including first-run, TV on DVD releases, classics and limited releases. Unfortunately, the largest single category is, "Screener is Late". You will see that phrase countless times on this list. (Perhaps it's because last week was a short week due to Memorial Day.) It is especially hard to select a Pick of the Week, because I don't like handing out that title when the screener is late. There are a few likely candidates, including Burn Notice: The Complete Fifth Season, Yellow Submarine on Blu-ray, but I went with Tomboy on DVD.

One of many low-budget horror films I have gotten the chance to review in my job. Rogue River is the directorial debut for Jourdan McClure and is based on a script by Kevin Haskin and Ryan Finnerty, who combined have written one feature-length movie previous to this one. Is this a good movie? Is it a good movie, considering the lack of experience for the director and screenwriters? Or should fans of the genre perhaps wait to see some of their future work?
