You've seen it. You can't UNSEE it.
Hi. So, a million years ago, there was a feature right here on this very site called the Sunday News Recap, where we’d take a look at the last seven days’ worth of reviews and features at eFC/HBS, as well as the box office numbers for the weekend, and look ahead to the upcoming week’s new release feature films, DVDs and anything else that caught our fancy. This week, we’re back on a trial basis – double-secret probation, as it were – and we’ll just see how far along we can make it. My name’s Ryan, and I’m a little rusty, so give a guy a break, sit back, relax, and enjoy the Recap.
