May 13th, 2016. Mark that date on your calendars, folks. That’s the day the new Doom arrives, and you’re going to want to have your trigger fingers properly limbered up before then.

Martyrs 2016 is 10-15 minutes shorter than Martyrs 2008. At a […]
Fantastic news as Deftones have set the release date of their new as-yet-untitled album for April 8th. It is the follow up to 2012’s Koi No Yokan, which I absolutely adored.

When I was but a wee bonny lass, the internet was more than six months away from being born. Therefore, movie fans such as I had to glean information from a variety of sources–dusty old books at the library or, say, the ramblings of Dana Hersey on WSBK TV 38 Boston's The Movie Loft.
