First, the DVD picks:

Now, the Blu-Ray picks:

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “The Akira Kurosawa box may be lacking an expected title or two, but it’s still an incredible set, currently at a very good price (about $11 each for Criterion titles.)” Alex says, “Going with what I’ve seen before, I’ll be reccomending R30 on Blu-Ray. As far as DVD goes, I haven’t watched most of what’s coming out this week – though I will be adding Monster to my Netflix Queue. I’d also like to take a moment to offer my sympathies to the family of Eddie “Umaga” Fatu, who passed away on 12/4/2009. As of this writing – shortly after his death, the cause of death is unknown.”
