Danny Trejo is awesome, but is the rest of Darkness Descends?

Darkness Descends (or “Redemption: The Darkness Descending” as it appears in the film; because why have one perfectly good title, when you can have two – a hokey one, and a clunky one – separated by a colon?) stars my hero: Danny Trejo.

A mild consumer rant on DVDs and editing

Something that I’ve never quite understood since the advert of DVDs is why I can watch the deleted scenes as separate sections, but I can’t switch on the setting that says ‘include these scenes in the main film when I watch it’. In a similar way, when watch a boxed set if DVDs, I don’t understand why I have to watch 60...
