This is a week loaded with B-level titles, many of which are flicks of low visibility starring TV actors trying to fight typecasting with very different roles during the summer break. There’s also a lot of low-budget horror.

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “To make up for my omission last week, and due to this being such a slow week, I’m picking Durarara Part 1, for reasons that are clear if your read the review.” Blaine says, “Alice in Wonderland is tempting, as is Pleasantville, both now on Blu-Ray.”
