Walter Hill’s cult classic rock n’ roll fable Streets of Fire is finally making its way to Blu-ray in the United States after previously only being available in the UK and Germany among other countries that seem to get the cool stuff way before us.

Brian Braves The Final Destination 3-D Death Trip

After viewing Halloween II last night, The Final Destination 3D was like a breath of fresh air.  It was like much needed oxygen to my constricted blood vessels in my brain that have been suffocating from choking paralysis since last night.  If I knew it was going to be that easy to get the bad […]
