The Sunday News Recap! 1.6.13

Damn that sorcerer! 20 gold pieces and I'm wankered on Rohypnol!
by Ryan Arthur

Do not adjust your monitors: the Sunday News Recap, a week late, is on the internet and ready to go, featuring the last seven…fourteen…days’ worth of reviews and features from the crew here at eFC/HBS. We’ll also run down the box office numbers for the weekend and prepare you for the week ahead. I’m Ryan, and Ah, well. Prepare to put mustard on those words, for you will soon be consuming them along with this slice of humble pie that comes direct from the oven of shame, set at gas mark egg on your face…I sort of forget what I was talking about.

”Team! Team, team, team, team, team. I even love saying the word 'team'. You probably think this is a picture of my family? No! It's a picture of The A-Team. Bodie, Doyle, Tiger, the Jewellery Man.”

”If two grown men can't make a pervert happy for a few minutes in order to watch a film about zombies, then maybe we should all just move to Iran!”

Somewhere Between
Struck By Lightning

”You wouldn't shoot a Policeman and then steal his helmet. You wouldn't go to the toilet in his helmet, and then send it to the Policeman's grieving widow, and then steal it again. Downloading films is stealing; if you do it you WILL face the consequences!”

Previewing the week ahead...

We've got more DVD and Blu-Ray recommendations in our Upcoming DVD Release Schedule.

Look for regular updates and additions in Criticwatch from Erik Childress on Friday, as well.

And hey, don't forget to visit the Contest page for your chance to win DVDs and other assorted movie-related swag from eFC/HBS.

We'll also have some additional features and editorials throughout the week, and I'll have your Recap ready to go on Sunday.

“ Oh my word. When did the English start drinking like that? You people drink like you don't want to live.”

And just like that, the Sunday News Recap is done for both the week and the previous year. HELLS TEETH! They're just cars! I'm not aroused! God DAMN these electric sex pants! Don’t forget, we’ll (probably) be back next Sunday with another edition of the Recap. You can always take a look at our previous Recaps and join and visit our forums, too. I hope your 2012 ended on a high note and that your 2013 began on just as high a peak, with even greater heights ahead. Thanks for reading, and as always, your feedback is appreciated.
