WWE Monday Night Raw Review/Recap: Bryan vs. Orton Street Fight, CM Punk Confronts Paul Heyman

Posted: June 25, 2013 at 3:59 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

While last week’s WWE Raw was a home run from top to bottom, this week’s episode wasn’t up to that standard, but it wasn’t as bad as past episodes either. The main problem I had with this week’s episode was pacing. Hours 1 and 3 were much better than hour 2. The second hour of […]

Dexter 8th and Final Season Starts Sunday, June 30 on Showtime

Posted: June 24, 2013 at 8:12 am   /   Local, Television

Sunday, June 30 will mark the beginning of the end for one of television’s top shows. Dexter will be ending it’s run after 8 seasons, leaving a cult following behind. Since The Sopranos left HBO a few years ago, there hasn’t been much on cable television that interested me besides Dexter and Breaking Bad, so […]

WWE Monday Night Raw Review/Recap: Christian Returns, Mark Henry Retirement, Brock Lesnar Attacks C.M. Punk

Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:03 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

After a few weeks of no WWE Raw column, I’m back, and with good reason. Let’s face it, the last few weeks of WWE television has been lackluster, and that’s being kind. My mother always taught me that if I didn’t have anything nice to say, not to say anything at all, so I stayed […]

Movie Review: ‘The Purge’ Starring Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane

Posted: June 6, 2013 at 11:13 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

When I first heard about The Purge, I was very interested in the plot concept. I thought it seemed original and had the possibility to be a movie that actually had the nerve to speak on the social cliques and stereotypes that widely go unmentioned in our nation. Sadly, my hopes were dashed, as this […]

Review: ‘Limp Bizkit’ Tour Brings Fred Durst to Pop’s Nightclub & Concert Venue

Posted: June 3, 2013 at 1:26 pm   /   Concert Reviews, Local, St. Louis Events

Limp Bizkit was once one of the biggest bands in the world. Turn back the clock to 1999, and they were selling out arenas, similar to the Scottrade Center. In fact, I remember seeing them play there. It’s amazing how fast times have changed. Bizkit returned to St. Louis on Saturday night, to a sold […]

Movie Review: ‘Fast and Furious 6’ Starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Posted: May 24, 2013 at 8:41 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Fast and Furious 6 is ridiculous, totally illogical, and probably one of the best action movies of the summer. Justin Lin hits a homerun with the 6th installment in the FF franchise, thanks to great characters and some of the most over the top action sequence to ever hit the big screen. The focus of […]

Movie Review: ‘The Hangover Part III’ Exceeds Expectations

Posted: May 23, 2013 at 7:55 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

When The Hangover exploded onto the cinematic scene in 2009, it was the surprise hit of the year. It was without a doubt, one of the more original, and funny movies I had seen in a number of years. It made Zack Galifianakis a household name, along with Bradley Cooper. Then, came the stinker, Hangover […]

Review: WWE ‘Extreme Rules’ PPV at Scottrade Center in St. Louis (5/19)

Posted: May 20, 2013 at 3:58 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, St. Louis Events

Extreme Rules may have received mixed reactions from several of the wrestling column writers from around the nation, but I, for one, was very impressed with the show. Now, I don’t know how it came across on television, but the action from the fifth row of the Scottrade Center was pretty impressive. To make things […]

Preview: WWE Extreme Rules PPV in St. Louis – Cena vs Ryback, Triple H vs Lesnar, Jericho vs Fandango

Posted: May 16, 2013 at 10:18 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, St. Louis Events

Come Sunday, things will get “Extreme” over at Scottrade Center, as the WWE invades St. Louis for the pay per view event. Now, I know that this pay per view has been heavily scrutinized by myself and other wrestling fans for being filled with a lot of rematches and missing some key stars. However, I […]

WWE Monday Night Raw Review/Recap: Fandango vs. Jericho Dance Off, Triple H Calls Out Lesnar, Ziggler Drops Out of Extreme Rules

Posted: May 15, 2013 at 8:48 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling

The WWE is in dire need of something fresh. I don’t know if it’s a character or a storyline. At this point, anything would have helped liven up the three slow hours from Monday night. There were a couple strong points to the show. I really liked the way Raw started. Bringing Fandango and Chris […]
