Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “This is a good week for movies – Between The Avengers and Bond 50, we’ve got a great line-up. And that’s before we get into all 6 Lone Wolf & Cub films and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1, neither of which I’ve seen personally, but which I’m familiar enough with the subject matter to feel comfortable recommending them. Then there’s Steins;Gate, which I’ve heard plenty of positive recommendations about, enough to make me want to check it out sight un-seen. However, if I had to pick just one, I’d go with The Avengers.” Blaine says, “I’d also go with The Avengers and/or Bond 50.”
