Another lackluster week. This happens in July; studios try to avoid releasing titles that might distract from their big screen output. Things will start to pick up in mid-August, and then we get some excellent content in the weeks from September 7 until late December.

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “While Legend of the Dark Kings is going in my Netflix queue, I’d recommend waiting until later with your DVD purchases.” Blaine says, “I’ll be getting the Super Friends set because I’m a sucker for all superheroes, but generally speaking, the next of the high interest titles aren’t due until August. This fall is looking fantastic, particularly for Blu-Ray fans.”
