Remember when last week was a light week, and I hypothesized that was because people didn’t want to compete with the theatrical release of Avengers: Infinity War? This week was the original North American release week for that film, and we have so much less to pick from.

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “Not a lot has caught my interest this week – but I really liked the first S.P.L movie, and have been meaning to watch Paradox. Also, the trailer for Batman: Ninja really caught my attention.” Blaine says, “Black Panther is the best I’ve seen, with Roommates next if you stick to physical media. Gun Crazy and Going Clear are both on my must-see list.”
