Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “My pick for this week is Tom Baker’s 4th season – Boy and the Heron sounds alright. On the 4K front though, I’m actually going to go with Dark Angel, as I had a lot of fun rewatching that movie.” Blaine says, “I’m also going with Tom Baker’s Doctor Who as the best of this bunch.”

One reply

  1. Abigail looks like dumb, horror fun. I might catch that.

    The Garfield Movie just kind of plopped out there, didn’t it? I doubt anyone younger than Gen X was really into Garfield and even then, probably not enough to drag their kids to the theater to see it.

    Civil War…I don’t know. Feels like real life is getting too close to this one to be comfortable to sit through, though I’ve heard good things about the movie.
