And speaking of Origins, it wasn’t great but you could see the franchise moving away from the somewhat sillier aspects of the franchise. The Leprechaun movies have for […]
John Carpenter’s 1981 dystopian thriller Escape From New York spawned a sequel–1996’s Escape From L.A.–and a lawsuit. And now it’s birthed a bit of fashion that–probably–won’t kill you when the clock reaches zero. If oversized smartwatches are your thing, click here for more info.
