Lincoln, The Comedy, Killing Them Softly, and more on DVD/Blu-ray

Dredd is now officially the law

Frankenweenie, Dredd, Game Change, and more on DVD/Blu-ray
Jan 08
I don't know if you're seen it already, but the KDOC New Year's Eve show with Jamie Kennedy is a special kind of trainwreck. Uncensored f-bombs, technical glitches, an extremely faded Macy Gray, and a fight at the end. (Highl... read
