Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “If you’ve got a way to play 4K disks, Tremors would be worth picking up.” Blaine says, “nothing I’ve seen really jumps out at me. Of course, I’ve never gotten around to watching Tremors, though I hear it’s one of those franchises where the first is very worthwhile, but its memory is damaged by a string of progressively worse sequels.”

      You are. It’s better than “Guy Incognito,” but less than desirable. I am not certain of the reasons why it is happening. When I click through to the “edit” function, I can find nothing indicating this is anything but an anonymous comment. I’m hoping that someone with more knowledge on how the coding works can come through for you.
