Happy 2020 everybody 🙂 Well I am back, how was the Christmas and New Years of my dear readers 🙂 A new year also calls for the beginning of not only a new Moviedrome Monday entry from me, but also the first episode in the new season of Moviedrome, which in this case would be season 3. I also have a youtube video link of Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox introducing the 1976 cult classic Assault on Precinct 13 by now legendary director John Carpenter. If any of you readers are interested in reading Cox’s introductory transcript, read here. The episode’s original airdate was May 6, 1990 (read here). Though Cox has nice things to say about the film, he seems to give off the vibe that it is “overrated”, which I totally disagree with him on. I love Assault on Precinct 13, but then again, Cox has always been something of a contrarian. If any of you readers are interested in reading my list of my favorite John Carpenter films, read here.
