Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “pick up the Monty Python or Pixar products if you must. July home video releases tend to be weak so as not to complete with the theatrical product.” Alex says, “Two Word – Das Boot. That is, in short, the best submarine movie ever, and anyone who says otherwise is lying.”
