PICK OF THE WEEK
Summer Wars (The W at Amazon) (Samâ Wôzu - Japan, 2009) I usually gloss over the anime but seeing Michael Sinterniklaas in the voice credits for the dub means I need to give this another (or a first) glance Funimation

The Working Girls (1974) AKA "Elvira Naked" - no, really, I didn't make that up. Canny distributors sought to make money on video by hyping up a brief Cassandra Peterson nude scene as the sole selling point of the movie - which probably tells you all you need to know EXCEPT, since Code Red reverted to the original title for DVD release, what on earth was THEIR motivation?
