Review: ‘Baywatch’ Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Zac Efron

by Jeremy Housewright / Published: May 26, 2017 at 9:08 am   /   Movie Reviews

Not even The Rock himself can save Baywatch from downing. Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron try their best to keep the film afloat, but ultimately, the film is done in by the ridiculous plot and shallow script. Going into the film, it was pretty clear that Baywatch was trying to capture the same success of […]

Review: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Starring Brenton Thwaites, Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem

by Steve Kornfeld / Published: May 25, 2017 at 6:29 pm   /   Movie Reviews

If the fifth installment of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series has proven anything, it’s that this dead franchise should tell no more tales. It all should have ended with At World’s End. Back in 2007, the third Pirates movie brought each of its central storylines to a seeming conclusion: multicultural pirates reclaimed the seas […]

Review: Kiefer Sutherland Played a Packed House at FUBAR Over the Weekend

by Jeremy Housewright / Published: May 22, 2017 at 8:53 am   /   Concert Reviews

People love celebrities. That was pretty evident Saturday night as 500 people packed Fubar to see Kiefer Sutherland play a 75-minute set. When I first arrived the topic among most was if Sutherland was really any good or not. I appeared that some of the folks in attendance were just there to see their favorite […]

Review: ‘Chuck’ Starring Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman

by Steve Kornfeld / Published: May 19, 2017 at 10:23 am   /   Movie Reviews

It would be a mistake to classify Chuck as a sports movie. Sure, there is a fight or two, but boxing is hardly the focus here. Rather, the “true life story” documents the rise and fall of a man graced with a fleeting dose of fame but unable to resist the allure of its vices. […]
