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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

WWE Monday Night Raw Review/Recap: Cena vs. Ryback, Randy Orton to Fight Big Show in St. Louis

Posted: May 7, 2013 at 8:01 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

Thank god for Blues hockey, because Monday Night Raw was a snooze fest. I think that this episode truly shows how much trouble the WWE is in regarding lack of talent. It’s not good. With the exception of the Alberto Del Rio/Dolph Ziggler segment, everything felt lame. The show started off with a dud when […]

Posted: May 6, 2013 at 1:50 pm   /   Local, Television, Television Reviews, Television Shows

Call me a sucker if you want, but I can’t stop watching Netflix’s Hemlock Grove. It’s my Sunday ritual. That’s probably a good thing, because after some of the things that are brought to light in episodes 3-6, I felt like I needed to go to church. Now don’t get me wrong, there are still […]

As I sit here watching Top Gun it dawned on me that while the movie is totally bad ass, the soundtrack is a huge reason for that. So, that got me thinking about my top 10 movie soundtracks of all-time. Now, I’m probably going to anger some by leaving out A Hard Day’s Night. But I […]

Top star of the company, John Cena, apparently suffered an Achilles injury while on tour in Europe. The injury has been confirmed, but we all know that in the wacky world of wrestling, a confirmation […]

Movie Review: ‘Pain & Gain’ Starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie

Posted: April 25, 2013 at 10:54 pm   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Michael Bay has been responsible for a number of less than stellar films over the years. Some of them were downright stinkers, i.e. Transformers: Dark of the Moon. He has also been a producer on some of absolutely horrid remakes, i.e. The Hitcher and A Nightmare on Elm Street. So, when I heard he was […]

WWE Monday Night Raw Review / Recap (4/22) – Undertaker, Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. Shield, Chris Jericho vs. Dolph Ziggler

Posted: April 23, 2013 at 9:07 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

Monday’s April 22 edition of Monday Night Raw was one of the more boring weeks to come along in a while. The show had more of a filler tone to it, meaning it was just there to take up 3 hours of your time. With a pay per view 4 weeks out, it’s understandable that […]
