Fiscal Cliff Flix

If our elected leaders refuse to step up, HOH fan Stephen Childress suggests sending in the big guns:

Childress, who created the montage and posted it under the guise of “Paul Runge” — an homage to the Atlanta Braves’ former utility infielder — said he’s had it with all the blathering on about the fiscal cliff. He decided to have some fun with the mounting paranoia. Voila, the tribute video was born. And before you write off this mishmash of “Rocky III,” “Kindergarten Cop,” “Commando” and, of course, “Cliffhanger,” as pure fantasy, just remember that two of “Grindhouse’s” gnarly trailers have since made the leap to full-length feature films: “Machete” and “Hobo with a Shotgun.”
