    James. I wish you would do more content about film/reviews than video games.
    So many horror movies that come out that need your eye.

    I will definitely be watching this very soon. Awesome interview James. John Avildsen put up all kinds of amazing behind the scenes footage himself onto his Youtube channel before he passed away, I think he pretty much shot the entire film rehearsals of The Karate Kid of VHS before filming and it’s so cool. I encourage any fan of his films to check it out.
