*SPOILER ALERT*. At long last, J. has seen Man Of Steel. After years of waiting and speculation, he’s laid eyes on the film not once, not twice, but three times. Now the story must be told! Did he like it? Did he hate it? What was it like? And to share this experience, J. is […]

Dion and contributor J. Blake are back and ready to kick 2014 off with a duesy of a topic: Before you had the DVD, VCR, or even the Multiplex, how else could fans continue to digest their favorite films after seeing them in the theater?
