    DVD/VOD Review - Stephen Lloyd Jackson's Psychodrama 'David is Dying'

    When I think of a character being diagnosed with a terminal illness in a movie, especially HIV/AIDS, I think of sorrow.

The raunchy antics of horny teens enjoyed a heyday in the early eighties with the likes of "Porky's" and "Revenge of the Nerds," movies that tapped into the joy of young people ...
