Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “I’m absolutely going with the Marx Brothers Silver Screen collection. Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and Zeppo are some of my favorite comedians of all time.” Blaine says, “while there are no new releases I’ve seen that caught my eye, Cloud Atlas and Dexter are both on my must-see list.”

  1. Jethro says:

    I got the Marx Bros collection when it came out (also the other collection with the rest of their movies and less fancy packaging). Totally absolutely worth it.

    So about the “Remastered in 4K”, that should have “And then downgraded to 1080p” on it, right? (:

  2. Damien says:

    While the new move to 4K video is interesting, I question whether Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg’s crappy action flick (The Other Guys) needed the conversion, or, honestly, most of the titles that have been announced.

  3. JD DeLuzio says:

    The Marx Brothers and Taxi Driver.

    Hmmm…. That’d be a crazy double-bill.

    Has anyone here watched the 1998 Brave New World? The reviews aren’t especially encouraging.

    • I saw it back in 1998 but don’t remember it being particularly good. My memory seems to recall a lot of parts not making it into the film and the tone being lightened up.

      Then again…it IS Nimoy, so that’s always something worthwhile.
