Store Review: Tate’s

Tate’s Phone Number: 954-748-0181 Email: Address: 4566 North University Drive, Lauderhill, Florida, 33351 For reasons that elude me now, I found myself looking for something to do outside of Miami once.

New behind the scenes Gravity featurette!

Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter shared this new Gravity featurette. It’s the second piece of smart marketing/art (smartketing?) from the team behind the smash hit. The release feels like a sales push and a bit of Oscar campaigning all in one. Usually these featurettes are DVD bonuses, but this one tells us: Gravity is important; Gravity is serious;…
