Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “The Breakfast Club is a fantastic film, and my favorite from John Hughes. If you’ve got Blu-Ray, grab a copy.” Alex says, “I never really watched The Breakfast Club, or much else of the actual new releases this week before hand, so I can’t really make a pick. However, the Sanshiro Sugata films are going into my Netflix Queue.”

  1. You mean someone other than me ever watched She Spies??

    I personally think Drew Barrimore should be legally barred form EVER attempting to be in an action movie ever again.
