Somewhere a man named Williams is screaming…

It’s rare to get an in-depth look at the making of a bad movie. You might occasionally find a honest director’s commentary on a bad movie’s DVD release, but you’ll have to search through the untold number of denials and blamefests that tend to appear in commentaries for such films. Even when one is found, …

Critters: Special Edition?

Back when the special editions of the original Star Wars trilogy came out, I saw a pay-per-view listing for Critters: Special Edition. Despite all my searching, I can’t find any information about the supposed special edition online. My best guess is that it was it was a widescreen version of the film using the alternate …

Yeah, I know, I hate when people post things like “the impending global recession is far …
