Default 'Assault on Precinct 13' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter has reviewed the original 'Assault on Precinct 13.' He says it's a true cult classic. This Blu-ray sports good video and audio and some worthwhile supplements. Worth a look.

Dude, where you been at? It's been out for almost 5 months. It's an Amazon exclusive, though.

how many times can you say "carpenter" in a movie review...? Looks like 25's a winner!

This score is really catchy - yes, it initially comes off as tired and cheesy, but then it just grabs you and you will find yourself humming it far after the movie is over. It is a significant part of the movie, IMHO.

Am I the only person who thinks Carpenter's scores are just awful?
