St. Louis Baconfest Returns
Aug 2014 15

Fun fact: you can’t spell “awesome” without “bacon.”

I lied. You can. I’m not very smart. Whatever.

The fact remains, though, that bacon is more popular than ever. Whether it’s as a part of your diet or as the subject matter of your wardrobe, bacon will forever be on our minds and in our hearts (mostly as bits of saturated fat).

Aug 2014 08

Enter for your chance to receive a pair of passes to a special advance screening!

Expendables 3 PosterIn THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables—but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.

Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Antonio Banderas, Jet Li, Wesley Snipes, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger

Movie Review: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’
Aug 2014 07

Turtles Poster LargeFor the past few months, fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been blasting producer Michael Bay and director Jonathon Liebesman about their reboot of the popular franchise. While a lot of the comic purists cringe at the thought of Bay heading another unnecessary reboot, the outcome is actually pretty enjoyable.

Lieberman’s TMNT is very different from the first film, which is nearly 25 years old. While the original film stuck to the comic for the most part, the 2014 version has nearly a brand new take on the turtles. Liebesman and Bay change up how the turtles were created, as well as their look. I think this is what pissed fans off the most. Those who worry that the film might try to portray the turtles as aliens, fear not, as there is even a joke about it in the film.

As the film opens, the Turtles are still in training, but have been sneaking out to fight the Foot Clan. April O’Neil is a television reporter, trying to land a major story. She just happens to stumble upon the Clan committing a crime one night. That’s where she first sees the turtles. O’Neil then turns to family friend Eric Sacks, played by William Fichtner, to try to figure out where the Turtles came from. It just so happens that Sacks has a secret alliance with Shredder. It’s now up to O’Neil and the Turtles to try to thwart Sacks’ and Shredder’s plan to destroy New York.
