I kept it on the classics the first few days, which leads to America’s favorite “Scream Queen!”

Jaime Lee Curtis starred in what many feel is the greatest “Halloween” movie ever – because, well it is called “Halloween!”

John Carpenter Halloween

I offered up some fun trivia on the film, which you can see here:

Of course, some movies aren’t necessarily “great” films, but boy, are they wildly entertaining!

“Pieces” is certainly not a perfect film, but the blu-ray includes a bonus documentary about New York’s notorious 42nd street of the 70’s – see it here:
