Review: “Old School” WWE Monday Night Raw – (1/6)

Posted: January 7, 2014 at 1:52 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews, Wrestling

The first Monday Night Raw of 2014 was a start to what is hopefully a great year of wrestling. The theme for the first show of the year was “Old School,” which meant several former wrestling stars were scheduled to appear on the show. Wrestlers from the past such as Roddy Piper, Rikishi, Sgt. Slaughter, […]

Movie Review: ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’

Posted: January 3, 2014 at 10:08 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Just a few days into 2014, and I already have a nomination for worst movie of the year. Yes, that is how bad Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones is. Where the first PA seemed original and fresh, the last couple entries have stale, but they have showed glimpses of promise by adding to the story from […]

Movie Review: ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ Starring Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig

Posted: December 26, 2013 at 8:44 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Having read the short story “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” several years ago, I had a good idea of how the story would go in Ben Stiller’s latest offering. That being said, I can’t say that I hated the movie, but I can’t say that I really liked it either. The film, directed, produced, […]

Movie Review: ‘Grudge Match’ Starring Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone, Kim Basinger, Alan Arkin

Posted: December 24, 2013 at 11:00 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Going into the film Grudge Match, my expectations weren’t very high. The latest offering from director Peter Segal not only exceeded my expectations, it knocked them out of the ring. Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro star, along with Kim Bassinger, funny man Kevin Hart and Alan Arkin in this boxing comedy-drama. The premise of the […]

Read a WWE Fan’s Christmas Wish List Before You Watch the TLC PPV Online Tonight (2013)

Posted: December 15, 2013 at 8:06 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Wrestling

Can the WWE end the year on a good note? In what has been an otherwise crappy year for wrestling, will fans finally get a pay-per-view worth paying for? I am skeptical, to say the least. With Christmas being just weeks away, here is a Christmas wish list from a diehard wrestling fan. I am […]

Where to See Christmas Lights Around St. Louis (2013)

Posted: December 11, 2013 at 7:15 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Events

I believe that we all have a little Clark Griswald in us, but may not be crazy enough to decorate our homes like he did in Christmas Vacation. If that’s the case, don’t worry because there are enough holiday light displays in the St. Louis area to keep you busy until the end of the […]

RIP Paul Walker: The “Fast and Furious” Star’s Top 5 Best Movies

Posted: December 6, 2013 at 2:34 pm   /   Film, Local, Top Original Content

When word began to spread on Saturday night that actor Paul Walker had passed away, one phrase I continued to hear throughout the bar I was sitting in was, “The guy from Fast and Furious.” Yes, Walker was a mainstay in the popular film franchise, and was actually in the midst of filming the 7th […]

Review: WWE Monday Night Raw (12/2)

Posted: December 6, 2013 at 9:32 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Wrestling

The latest installment of WWE Raw was another snoozer. Try as they might, the WWE cannot overcome poor writing and trying to rebrand, repackage and resell matches from 2009 that fans’ have seen umpteen times before. It’s a losing battle that the WWE is fighting. I don’t see it improving until the part-time stars return […]

Review: WWE Survivor Series 2013 – Cena vs. Del Rio, Divas Elimination, Big Show vs. Randy Orton

Posted: November 26, 2013 at 9:28 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

The WWE’s 4th biggest pay per view of the year, Survivor Series, took place on Sunday night. And that’s about the most favorable thing I can say about it.   Anyone who forked over $55 of their hard-earned money was fortunate to see a Divas elimination match, John Cena beating Alberto Del Rio for the millionth time, and an […]
