DVD Picks – August 5, 2008

It’s a bit of a slow week for DVD releases with the biggest release being The Counterfeiters (also on Blu-Ray), which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

Also coming out this week is the family adventure film Nim’s Island (also on Blu-Ray) staring Jodie Foster and Gerard Butler.

If you’re into direct-to-video sequels, you can check out Starship Troopers 3: Marauder (also on Blu-Ray), which brings back the original’s star Casper Van Dien. You can also get a new box set (also on Blu-Ray) that includes the original film, along with the two direct-to-video sequels.

And that’s the DVD picks for this week.
