ATARI... The Movie?

I love a good biopic and I love Atari. But Leonardo DiCaprio starring as Atari founder Nolan Bushnell in a biopic called ATARI? Oh, I'm intrigued alright.

Speaking of Atari, you can still read 'The Horror of It All' a vintage ER piece on Classic Horror as Atari 2600 Game. The screenshot at right is from the controversial TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE game.

Damn. Ever actually played The Texas Chainsaw Massacre game? It was god awful. To think it fetches sick collector's prices. The Halloween one wasn't too bad.

The HALLOWEEN one cracked me up with the blood spurting from the babysitter's neck and the tinny version of the Carpenter score.

I've probably bought and sold a half-dozen of the TCM games over the years. Always brings a good price.
