It's a slow week by nearly every measure: big releases, overall quality, overall quantity, spotlight reviews, etc. This is great news for me since recently a package arrived with several DVDs, all of which were late. I'm not quite completely caught up, but I am very close. As for this week's releases, there were only a handful of releases that were even in contention for DVD Pick of the Week. Both The Savages - DVD and The Orphanage - DVD or Blu-ray earned excellent reviews, but their home market releases were only average. Cloverfield - DVD wasn't as good a movie, but the DVD had the best combination of movie quality and special features. The specter of a Blu-ray release notwithstanding, it is the DVD Pick of the Week.

The biggest hit of the year so far opened this weekend in Horton Hears a Who and fortunately the studio put together an Official Site that matches its box office strength.

There are plenty of wide releases this week, but the two widest releases, Funny Games and Sleepwalking, are earning some of the weakest reviews. On the other hand, there are several documentaries opening this week, most of which are earning stellar reviews.
