Shot On Site - Fear (1990): The Shadow Man's Stalking Street Corner

Image

It's been many years since I've done a proper Shot on Site article on The Corner Penthouse. This one is going to be really short, as I'm only going to focus on one single location from the 1990 movie Fear starring Ally Sheedy. Not to be confused with the 1996 movie Fear starring Reese Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg.

Star Wars Black Cover Multi-Screen Edition Blu-Ray Review

Image

On September 22, 2019, Disney re-released all 10 Star Wars films (The Rise of Skywalker wasn't out at the time) in new packaging featuring artwork that looks like a vertical smartphone against a HUGE black background with silver trim. Many times over the past year, I saw these releases in Target and Best Buy, but was never interested in them as I think that artwork looks really ugly - and from a design standpoint, all of that blackness is a a waste of space. Well, I received the Solo: A Star Wars Story Black-Cover "Multi-Screen Edition" Blu-ray for my birthday a few months ago, which was my first in-hand exposure to these releases. Well, let me tell you why you should AVOID THEM!

New York Community Bank Continues To Put Their Customers Health At Risk

Image

For the past three and a half months, I have had my health and safety put at risk due to New York Community Bank (henceforth referred to as NYCB) mishandling their response to COVID-19. I have been a NYCB account holder for over 20 years, going back to 1999 when I frequented the "Roslyn Savings Bank" East Rockaway in-store branch (in the now-defunct Pathmark supermarket). Since December 2012, I've been going to the "Roslyn Savings Bank" stand-alone branch located at 75 N. Central Avenue in Valley Stream, New York. Since I do not have a car, I walk the 0.8 miles from my home to the bank, which is a 15 minute journey. Of the plethora of banks in central Valley Stream, NYCB/Roslyn just so happens to be the furthest away from my home. Considering that there are other, closer, banking options, and that NYCB does not care about the health and safety of their customers, I have chosen to end my 21-year banking relationship with NYCB. Let me explain why...

I've written about many repack mystery boxes/blind bags already, including Neca's previous $6.99 Superhero Blind Bag.

As mentioned in my July 9, 2020 Shopping Report, I found one of these $9.99 blind bags, which may have been floating around the store for the past six to twelve months. I finally took it home, so read on to find out what was inside...

LG UBK80 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player Review

Image

Even though I have not had a good history with LG Electronics products, I bought the LG UBK80 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc player for $99.99 (normal price is $199.99) from Best Buy on Black Friday 2019. I was upgrading from the LG BP125 Blu-ray Disc player (purchased on December 10, 2012 from Walmart for $48.00), which was the only LG product that I never had an issue with. Based upon my positive experience with the BP125, I thought that LG, at least, made good disc players. Boy, was I wrong...
