Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “I haven’t seen Scanners, so I can’t pick that one in good confidence. However, I have seen several of the matches on the Best of the Great American Bash DVD, and I thought those were incredibly good, enough that I’d recommend checking that out if you enjoy wrestling.” Blaine says, “like Alex, I haven’t seen Scanners yet, but it’s high on my list of things to watch. With a Criterion release available, that’s a safe bet.”
