This is one of the lightest weeks we’ve seen in a while.

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “Wow, this is a helluva slow week this week. I’m going with Justice League: Doom. Yeah, I haven’t seen it, before this, but thus far I haven’t seen any of the DCU animated productions that I didn’t like.” Blaine says, “I’d go with Scarlet Street. It’s a great movie in the kind of edition that Kino excels at producing.”
