Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “While I have a nostalgic affinity for Versus, as it was a movie my friends and I were into in High School, it doesn’t really hold up that well. I’ll probably still upgrade my DVD copy to the Arrow Video Release, but as an actual pick, I’m going to go with Collateral.” Blaine says, “I would have to agree that Collateral is the best of this week’s offerings, but it’s not a particularly resounding recommendation.”

  1. The only thing I have seen on this list is Total Recall.

  2. JD DeLuzio says:

    As a fan of The Godfather and The Godfather, Part II who did not enjoy that third movie, the idea of a substantially different, significantly re-edited (and re-titled) version is at least intriguing.

    Cinema Paradiso, meanwhile, deserves its status as a classic of Italian cinema.

  3. Brian says:

    Outlander is a solid series. I haven’t read the books, but my wife has (and met the author) and she loves the series.
