The first Tuesday of the month is usually the busiest when it comes to DVD releases, and while there are certainly more releases coming out tomorrow than there are in the next two weeks, it is not as busy as I would like when it comes to top notch releases. At first glance there are only two that are even contenders for the DVD pick of the week, including Brokeback Mountain
- Buy from Amazon
and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
- Collector's Edition
. But while there are a couple of DVDs that are worth picking up, none make it to the level of DVD Pick of the Week. (And a quick glance at the coming weeks suggest there might not be one till the end of the month.) One last note, if you are interested in picking up Narnia
, check out our contest

Brokeback Mountain had the best per theatre average of the year, and the best for a Live Action film of all time.
The film earned an unbelievable $547,425 in 5 theatres for an average of $109,485.
If that was the only film on this week's chart it would have been an impressive week; however, Memoirs of a Geisha also had a stellar start, earning nearly $700,000 in 8 theatres for an average of $85,313.
Other members of the $10,000 club include the overall box office leader, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with $18,130 and Transamerica, which just manage to earn a spot with $10,686, which was more than 50% lower than last weekend.
