Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “The Once Upon A Time In China Movies (especially the first two) were a big part of my introduction to martial arts cinema – this is absolutely a must-buy. That said, if you have the ability to play movies in 4K, the Mad Max movies Anthology is also worth picking up.” Blaine says, “I’m sure our readers are aware of the quality of most of the franchise box sets, so this week, I’m recommending a very good movie that most people dismiss without watching: Josie and the Pussycats. It embraces the silliness and fun inherint in an Archie title (right down to dialogue like ‘why are you here?’ followed by ‘because I’m in the comic’) but still manages to offer a serious message. It’s not the best title out this week, but I suspect it’s the most underrated.”

One reply

  1. A few things that all seem interesting, and are from 20 years ago, so now I feel old. I guess I deserve it for looking at a DVD list, though…

    That said, Josey and the Pussycats is awesome. The music is underrated, too, and I will never not laugh at the line you quoted.
