The early year doldrums continue on the home market front. Even though there are plenty of releases, including eight spotlight reviews, there are none that really jump out as Contenders for DVD Pick of the Week. Family Guy - Blue Harvest Special Edition could be called the best of a weak bunch, but odds are everything the disc will be included in a future release that will be a lot more competitively priced.
(On the other hand, if you want the cool physical extras, grab the Limited Edition release.)

There were no films able to crack $10,000 on the per theatre charts this week, but one did come close. Inland Empire, an experimental film by David Lynch
, opened in Boston on the weekend and took in $27,508 in its 3 theatres for an average of $9,169. Correction - We have been informed that the film was only playing in 2 theatres and not 3 giving the film a per theatre average of $13,754. Sorry for the error.

Good week for websites with a number of candidates for the top spot. In the end I went with Ghost Rider
- Official Site
, but there's a few others here that will undoubtedly win in the coming weeks.

There's a short list of limited releases this week with two films of note, Screamers and Monkey Warfare.
The first is a powerful documentary while the second film is smaller Canadian film that is worth making the effort to see.
