‘Steven Spielberg’s Director’s Chair’, ’90s Computer Game Where You Make a Movie Starring Quentin Tarantino, is Now Available Online

Hence the excitement in the early 1990s when fans of Hong Kong gangster pictures learned that John Woo, that country's preeminent action auteur, was coming stateside. His streak of Hong Kong hits at that point included A Better Tomorrow, The Killer, Bu...
