Top DVD/Blu-ray Sales and Rentals for the Week Ending May 22, 2011

This doesn't surprise me. I'm always up for a good action flick before anything else. I don't even buy romantic comedies unless they're for gifts.

ya there is nothing to be surprised..action flick tops the list every time..but i am wondering whether Mechanic deserve this..to me its a average action flick ..

I thought it was pretty decent. But yea just an average action flick. Wasn't bad though.

On that point, it's always the average ones that dominate charts most often. These are the type that have a real mass appeal for some reason.

I will say, though. It is a bit surprising. Being as it wasn't anything special, I'm half surprised that it managed to dethrone Justin Bieber. I could've absolutely seen 'Never Say Never' being the #1 for the second week in a row. Just because of this mass craze surrounding him (which I don't understand for the life of me).
