'2 Guns' Blu-Ray Review: Film Captures Worst Elements of Buddy Cop Genre

2 Guns, available Nov. 19th on home video, managed to take two talented and likable actors, a story with great potential and an almost always fun genre and just barely score a few notches above mediocrity. Perhaps I'm being a bit harsh. Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg look like they're having a good time after all. Just wish I coulda had some fun too. Nov 17, 2013 10:20 AM PT

Self-Publishing Pastor Highlights Era of Creative Freedom

The art world is changing for the better. The system is now becoming completely about consumer choice and the possibilities are absolutely endless. This is especially true of books. Anyone can now self publish a book and sell themselves to readers. The control over whose books reach the top and have the most effect on the world and our pocket books has been put in our hands. James E. Parker is one of those authors in the rat race and he's got a few things to say about it.  Nov 14, 2013 2:41 PM PT

'Home Again' DVD Review: Deportees Drama Needs More Room to Grow

Home Again, available on home video on Nov. 12th, has an interesting concept: the movie follows a collection of characters that left Jamaica when they were young and have now been shipped back to the country due to various illegal activities their hosting countries didn't approve of. Unfortunately, the concept doesn't translate clearly enough on the screen. Nov 13, 2013 12:16 PM PT

'Girl Most Likely' Blu-Ray Review: Distasteful Characters Wallow in Tepid Dramedy

Kristen Wiig can really shine with the right material. Bridesmaids is a perfect example. Unfortunately, a movie like Girl Most Likely just wants her to take her ignorant and neurotic screen persona to the max and hope it works. She's all alone here and the movie suffers. Never once did I care whether or not her struggling writer figured out any of her dilemmas.  Nov 10, 2013 3:50 PM PT

'Paradise' DVD Review: Conservative Stereotypes Smother Screenwriter's Directorial Debut

Paradise, available on home video Nov. 12th, is the directorial debut of screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult). It's a film that has some meaningful moments, but the whole narrative is brought down by stereotypes, ignorance and a story that mostly feels like an excuse to make a movie where an innocent and naive girl is thrown into the sin city of all sin cities: Las Vegas.

'Parkland' DVD Review: Drama Brings Little New, or Conspiratorial, to JFK Assassination

The first 20 minutes of "Parkland," a story involving the assassination of President Kennedy, are startlingly good. The pace is fast, the footage is expertly mixed with old news reels and the characters settle into their days as if it's going to be like any other. It's not. However, once those 20 minutes are over, Parkland doesn't have anywhere to go and knows it. Nov 7, 2013 3:42 PM PT

'White House Down' DVD Review: Director Puts Politics Above Stale Story

I normally do not like to judge a movie based on the merits of similar or better movies, but it seems to be the most appropriate way to review White House Down. Released within months of Olympus Has Fallen (a movie with the same basic conceit), Down is a film that is unbelievably bad. However, beyond being a very bad movie, when you compare it to the far superior Fallen you realize that the two films represent a larger struggle that is occurring in the criss-crossing worlds of art and politics today.

'Bounty Killer' DVD Review: Business Bashing Bust

The new action romp "Bounty Killers" tries to blend grindhouse action, far-left politics and a heady sense of humor together into one story. Too bad all of those ingredients make for one warmed over DVD. Oct 27, 2013 2:03 PM PT

Madison Rising Puts Polemics Aside, Coaxes Conservative Crowd to Its Feet

I was excited when I heard that rock and roll band Madison Rising was coming to my State not too long ago. They're a conservative rock band that seems to have the ability to be musicians first and preachers of politics second. Their music is not typical for what you would think conservatives listen to: they're a heavy rock band with an old school twist in the vein of Lynyrd Skynyrd. The concert I was going to see was being held at an old Armory and being sponsored by the Republican Party of the coinciding county, so I was admittedly a little worried. If there's one thing I've found Republicans are a little skeptic about, it's rocking out. Oct 23, 2013 3:17 PM PT

'Red Clover' DVD Review: Limp Leprechaun Tale Neither Campy nor Scary

Red Clover is a movie that was originally titled Leprechaun's Revenge when it aired on the SyFy network. Neither title really works for this film. The former suggests it is a legitimately scary flick while the other suggests it is a tongue in cheek B-movie a la Sharknado (interesting fact: the writer of Red Clover directed Sharknado).

Trailer Talk: 'Paranormal Activity' Franchise Running on Fumes with 'Marked Ones'

This year was the first in awhile that did not have a Paranormal Activity movie. The fifth installment in the series was postponed until next October and a "cousin" film was announced to the franchise titled Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. The movie takes place within the chronology of the franchise's events, but follows different characters. The trailer landed online recently. Check it out and some thoughts below.
