I’ve been on a bit of a nostalgia kick recently as last week’s “it came from the long box” column is a sure sign of. Being a bit of a dreary day, I decided to take a look at the film version of The Crow (which has recently been released on blu ray… which I don’t have… I’ve got the…

As of this writing, the “Tomatometer” is at 22% (with an average score of 4.4/10) with 93 critics panning the film and only 26 saying that it’s kind of awesome.…
