Note that this is actually a Friday, September 9 release. Blaine: I originally skipped this one because I was dissatisfied with three out of four previous attempts to make an X-Men film through Fox. I’m told this one turned out to be a great movie, capturing the spirit of the comics accurately, as though Fox stepped up their game with the impending threat of the reversion of the rights to Disney.
Dressed to Kill
Destry: The Complete Series

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “I’m going to go with To Love Ru. Yes, it’s a fan-service heavy romantic comedy, but it’s a fun show, with more likable characters than the series it emulates – Urusei Yatsura.” Blaine says, “I’ve seen nothing released this week in its entirety, but the reputation of X-Men: First Class and the strength of the first season of Community are enough for me to strongly suggest checking those out.”

  1. Hey, I’ve got some suggestions about the table layout, if I may. Now I can’t use preview so I’m hoping this looks right…

    1. I think the comments about a title (such as starring, and your own comments) should be in the same cell (and row) as the title itself. Having them in a different cell like they are now is a bit confusing. I’d use some <br> tags to space things out between the title and other comments.

    2. Kinda tied in to that, but I don’t think both columns need to be fixed width at 50%, which you’re enforcing now. I say leave the width= out of that and let them figure it out for themselves; that way the format column will only be as big as it needs to be.

  2. The Classic Sci-Fi Ultimate Collection:

    Yes, who could forget such ultimately classic Sci-Fi as “Dr Cyclops” and “The Leech Woman.”
