The Newsroom: Season 2

  HBO knows how much I love my Aaron Sorkin dramas, and were kind enough to let me catch up on a Season 2 blu-ray before the third and final season (sad sigh) is released in June. So this past weekend, I settled in to watch the 9 episode season, and relive all those fantastic…

Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 1 (2013) – Lloyd Kaufman

  Anchor Bay was kind enough to give me my first Troma experience, and I’ll be honest, I really enjoyed it and laughed a lot! I knew going in that it would be crass, bloody and filled with nudity, and I wasn’t far off. Not so much a remake or reboot, as it is a…
