Final Thought – Arrow Video July 2019

I’m not too sure which films I intend to review at this point but Weird Science (1985) seems like a good choice. You can see which I choose in July but my rule is the ones that Arrow Films states have been restored are worth taking a risk on if you simply can’t wait for the reviews. The others I’d definitely advise waiting for the Blu-ray reviews before purchasing.
