Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “I’d go with A Beautiful Mind or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind if you have Blu-Ray capacity. Otherwise, there’s nothing that particularly stands out.” Alex says, “I haven’t seen anything coming out this week really. However, Red is going on my Netflix queue, and I also intend to watch Disgaea and Sacred Blacksmith at some point in the future.”
