TSB gives Evil Dead (2013) 2 out of 5 stars
On Saturday night I returned to the Studio Movie Grill to see the remake of the cult classic horror flick, Evil Dead (the original was released in 1981). I’m not a big fan of remakes, but the movie selection this time of year is pretty slim and it’s been a while since I’ve seen a scary movie. Needless to say, this film did not change my opinion on remakes one bit. (**SPOILER ALERT** this review may contain spoilers. Continue reading at your own risk) Read the rest of this entry »
On Friday night I returned to the Studio Movie Grill to see the latest installment of the Die Hard series, A Good Day to Die Hard. I had big expectations for this movie, as Live Free or Die Hard is one of my favorite movies of all time. This, my friends, is no Live Free or Die Hard.

On Friday night I went to see Tarantino’s latest flick Django Unchained at the Studio Movie Grill, which coincidentally is my new favorite theater. Reserved seats, waitresses bringing you all the alcohol and food your heart desires- you can’t beat it. But enough raving about SMG theaters, on to my review of Django Unchained (**SPOILER ALERT** this review may contain spoilers. Continue reading at your own risk)

Did Dottie Hinson Drop the Ball on Purpose?

For fans of the 1992 classic, ‘A League of Their Own’, this debate has long tortured them. Did Dottie drop the ball of purpose or was her younger sister, Kit, able to barrel over her sister at home to win the game? Let’s set the scene…We flash to Game 7 of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) World Series between Dottie’s Rockford Peaches and Kit’s Racine Belles. (You’ll remember that Dottie was the All-Star catcher, and Kit was the talented albeit hotheaded pitcher.)
With more testosterone than the 2001 MLB home run race, Pain and Gain looks like it could be epic.

I know, I know. I should be writing about the NBA. I should be writing about the New York Knicks, their renaissance, the invasion of the Nets into Brooklyn and the epidemic that has been unleashed on our city/state/area by their makeshift fans. For that, let me lean back and apologize. I’ve been caught up by the wave of the Knicks success but I’ve also been abnormally busy. I will be sure to make some time in the future for my little corner in the TSB community. Let’s get back to the matter at hand though. Read the rest of this entry »
In my eyes, there are two kinds of people in this world: people that like Katy Perry’s music, and people that don’t. I will admit, I am a big fan of her music; along with other fun/cheesy pop music, it makes me feel good. The beauty of this movie is that I believe if you can tolerate her hits (Firework, California Gurls, Last Friday Night, etc), you will enjoy this movie thoroughly.
First things first, this isn’t a non-fiction movie; it’s a documentary style film. You go along with her during her year long, worldwide tour, and that is where you learn to appreciate what’s behind Katy Perry. Yes, she is a hot chick, with Christian parents who ‘went wild’. She is also someone who was dropped by a few labels, had people trying to fit her into the cookie cutter pop star mold, and had very few people who believed in her. With a lot of footage from before “I Kissed a Girl” launched her into pop stardom, you feel her pain. Read the rest of this entry »
