‘The Right Stuff’ Returns to Honor John Glenn for Limited AMC Theatres Run
In addition to being a war hero and senator, John Glenn — who passed away late last week at the age of 95 — was an astronaut between 1958 and 1964. That tenure is part of the drama in 1983’s “The Right Stuff,” perhaps the best drama ever made about Nasa (sorry, “Apollo 13”). To honor Glenn, AMC Theatres is re-releasing the film between now and this Thursday, December 15.

In “The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo,” the Winchesters had their first major run-in with Dick Roman since Dick shot Bobby. It was a great episode, filled with a cornucopia of geek-gasms and hints at the Supernatural Season 7 finale.
