Movie Review: ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman

Posted: March 22, 2013 at 9:49 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

While not perfect, Olympus Has Fallen is a great popcorn flick that action-junkies will love. Director Antoine Fuqua gets the most out of a strong cast, which makes up for a weak plot and at times shoddy CGI effects. The premise of the film is pretty simple. Gerard Butler stars as Mike Banning, a demoted […]

The Diary of a Professional Wrestling Addict (WWF, WCW, WWE or W-Whatever)

If one were to see me at my day job, it would be hard to imagine that I eat, breathe and sleep professional wrestling. Ever since I was a little boy at age 6, my grandfather would take me to the old Arena to see Hulk Hogan. The Hulkster was the end all, be all […]

As a Bon Jovi fan, I may be a bit biased in my review, but you have to understand that if it wasn’t for Jon and his band, I would never have gotten into rock music. Growing up, all I was subjected to was country music. I can still remember being 6 years-old and hearing […]

Colin Farrell has been a hot streak as of late, with some great role choices. First, he stole the show in Horrible Bosses. He really was about the only reason to see the movie. Then, he had an Academy Award worthy performance in the film In Bruges and turned around with a delightful role in […]

As I sat clicking through different movie sites on the Internet, I read the news that there is a remake of one of my favorite films of all-time, Flatliners, in the works.  The 1990 film was one of the freakiest movies I had seen growing up, not because of blood and gore, but because of […]

Music Monday: The Top Ten Albums of the 90s

Posted: February 25, 2013 at 8:18 pm   /   Local, Music

Growing up in the 90s, it seemed like no music really dominated the decade. There was the alternative rock scene, consisting of bands like Nirvana, Alice and Chains, and Stone Temple Pilots. While alternative music often dominated my CD player, rap was also a fixture in my car, as my friends and I often spent […]

Idol Chatter: American Idol Season 12 on Fox

Posted: February 21, 2013 at 7:27 pm   /   Local, Television Shows

I am embarrassed to admit it, but I am one of the millions of Americans who tune in every week to Fox to watch American Idol. While last season was filled with high hopes, it was ultimately a letdown, due to a lack of talent and lack of chemistry among the judges. In fact, most […]
