Ahead of the Wednesday holiday, the DVD pickings this week are awfully, awfully slim. When the first season of a Sci-Fi channel TV show is the bestselling new DVD on you know you're looking at a fairly dreary list of new titles. A few of them, though, do merit interest either because they're pretty good (Puccini for Beginners) or pretty awful (the Corey's Dream a Little Dream 2). If you're looking for some original Grindhouse double features (not that prettified Weinstein company crap), two twin bills go on sale today. Aside from that, it's a barren week. Next Tuesday looks more promising.

Puccini for Beginners
Ghost in the Shell - Solid State Society
Driving Lessons

Dream a Little Dream 2
Eureka: Season One
Baa Baa Black Sheep, Vol 2
