Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “If you have the ability to play movies in 4K, I’d recommend the Mad Max collection. Otherwise, on the anime front, I watched Log Horizon series 3 while it was airing, and enjoyed it enough that I’m probably going to pick it up.” Blaine says, “Wayne’s World is the best of the titles I’ve seen, but I’m really looking forward to checking out Ghostbusters: Afterlife.”

One reply

  1. I enjoyed Afterlife (and want to read a review by Blaine), and am I alone is not realize that it’s been thirty years since Wayne’s world?
