This is not a really slow week on the home market this week, as we have The Lorax coming out, and it was the highest-grossing animated film of the year, until Brave overtook is very recently, so it should be a big seller on the home market. Unfortunately, it is the only major release of the week. There are some other releases worth checking out, a few worth picking up, but very few that are contenders for Pick of the Week. High Fidelity is a great movie, but its Blu-ray debut is Shovelware. Personally, I think Spaceballs is really underrated, but this is not the first time it has been released on Blu-ray and double-dips are rarely Pick of the Week material. In the end, I'm going with My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding, because I liked the first DVD release more than I thought I would.

Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion starred two women, Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow, both of whom were arguably at the peak of their fame. The former had just won an Oscar, while the latter was part of the biggest sitcom on TV at the time. It was a minor hit when hit came out 15 years ago, but has it aged well? And now that it has made its Blu-ray debut, is it worth picking up?
