World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Movie Studios has given us no reason to think any film that comes out of their camp will be any good. From box office duds like The Marine and 12 Rounds, and a plethora of straight to DVD films, the company does not have a credible track record. Well, maybe that […]

Film Review: ‘Rampage’ Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman

Posted: April 13, 2018 at 8:10 am   /   Movie Reviews

Overall, when it comes to adapting video games into film, the ratio of good to bad is staggering. This year, we’re one for one with a faithful adaptation of Tomb Raider and now Rampage. I don’t know what it is that screenwriters and directors don’t get when it comes to creating that bridge to transition […]

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 […]

Posted: March 20, 2013 at 7:18 pm   /   Local, Sports, Television

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 […]
