Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “If you have a way to watch movies in 4K, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is a pretty good inclusion to your collection. On the anime side of things, I’m going to give a recommendation for the Blu-ray release of Rose of Versailles.” Blaine says, “once again, nothing jumps out at me.”

    I am reading the book, Nomadland, right now. I recommend it highly, and I look forward to seeing the film.

    Justice Society: World War 2 might be entertaining. I’ll probably pick that up.

    Masculin féminin holds up surprisingly well. I can’t say that I would buy it, but I was glad I saw it.
