In the NEWS… Weird Al fills an accordion with loads of vinyl including previously unreleased tracks alongside a complete collection of his works. Rogue One comes to your home in just over a month on DVD and Blu-ray. The Last Jedi title discussion reaches a conclusion with French and Spanish titles’ explanation of this questionable phrase in English. Aftershocks of 1977 Find out how the 49th Academy Awards launched the career of an iconic actor when the Best Picture of 1976 featured a nearly penniless man, his dog, and a heart that enabled him to go the distance. Rocky continues to hit viewers where it counts four decades after its initial release. JediShua and shazbazzar relate their thoughts about this classic film that put Sylvester Stallone on the Hollywood best list. Toys in the Attic With Toy Fair in the rear-view mirror, the ‘Dads react to some of the toys that scored with them.
