Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “if you have 4K capability, Terminator 2 is worthy of consideration. If you want digital, go with Blade Runner 2049.” Alex says, “This year was the 72nd anniversary of the Hiroshima bombings. That reason alone certainly makes the Barefoot Gen collection worthy of consideration.”
