Movie Review: ‘Lucy’ Starring Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman

Posted: July 25, 2014 at 6:40 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Don’t be fooled by the trailer for Lucy, the latest film from director Luc Besson. It looks like a sci­fi, action thriller; yet what it really is, is a mean-­spirited, unexciting train wreck. Scarlett Johansson stars as Lucy. One of my big problems with the film is that we are introduced to Lucy at the […]

Movie Review: ‘Tammy’ Starring Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney

Posted: July 2, 2014 at 8:20 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

It seems like you either love or hate Melissa McCarthy. Her latest film, Tammy, will do nothing to change that. Tammy is a movie that looks like it is nothing special, just more of McCarthy’s raunchy act that she has been cashing in on since Bridesmaids. In reality, Tammy is a heartfelt, feel good comedy, […]

Review: WWE Payback 2014

Posted: June 4, 2014 at 8:59 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

WWE Payback was just what the doctor ordered for the WWE: an entertaining pay per view. It’s just a shame that the company has done a lousy job of promoting the last two pay per view’s. Both have featured some great wrestling and wonderful story telling. Sunday’s event kicked off with Cesaro vs. Sheamus. Paul […]

Movie Review: ‘Chef’ Starring Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara, Robert Downey, Jr.

Posted: May 23, 2014 at 6:13 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Jon Favreau is used to putting out huge, summer action flicks, like Iron Man 1 and 2, as well as the dud Cowboys and Aliens, but this summer he’s not blowing up anything, he’s cooking. Chef is Favreau’s latest project, and a welcomed departure from summer action flicks. Favreau directed, wrote, and stars in this […]

Movie Review: ‘Neighbors’ Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne

Posted: May 9, 2014 at 5:31 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

We’ve all had neighbors we didn’t like at one time or another. Hell, I went to war with a few of my neighbors when I used to live in my wife’s condo. In Seth Rogen’s new film, Neighbors, he and Zac Efron are perfectly cast as next-door neighbors who go all out in a battle […]

Review: WWE Extreme Rules PPV (5/3)

Posted: May 7, 2014 at 11:33 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

To say the WWE’s booking of Extreme Rules was poor would be an understatement. It seemed like no one cared to watch this pay per view, but in the end I’m pretty sure most wrestling fans were pleasantly surprised. The show kicked off with a triple threat match between RVD, Jack Swagger, and Cesaro. This […]

Review: WWE Monday Night Raw in St. Louis (4/28)

Posted: April 30, 2014 at 2:53 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

This week’s edition of Monday Night Raw was not only the go-home show for the Extreme Rules pay per view, but also aired live from St. Louis. With the pay per view being less than a week away, there was not much hype surrounding this weeks edition of Raw, which was not necessarily a bad […]

Grown men don the jersey of their favorite team every Sunday for 16 or more weeks, in hopes of them reaching the Super Bowl. While Kevin Costner’s latest film, Draft Day, isn’t the Super Bowl of sports movies, it’s pretty damn […]

Movie Review: ‘Oculus’ Starring Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Katee Sackhoff

Posted: April 11, 2014 at 4:48 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

I’m a sucker for a good mind-bender of a movie, and Oculus delivered in that department. Mike Flanagan’s low-budget horror film keeps viewers on the edge of their seats, despite a bit of a slow start. The story centers around Tim (Brenton Thwaites) and Kaylie (Karen Gillan), two siblings who were witness to some pretty […]
