The Achievers Review

The Achievers

This was an interesting movie to watch for me, but I warn you going in, it may not be for the “uninitiated” any more than your typical screening of the Rocky Horror Picture show would be enjoyable for someone who either hadn’t seen, or worse, didn’t like that particular movie. The Big Lebowski was the … Continue reading The Achievers Review

Cave of Forgotten Dreams Review

Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Herzog seems like the kind of guy I’d really love to just chill with and enjoy a good conversation for a few hours. As a documentary filmmaker he has a knack for finding the humanity, or the soul, in what would otherwise be just a very interesting documentary about a very old cave.

It’s Good to be The King: The Jerry Lawler Story Review

WWE It's Good to be The King

I have been a wrestling fan all of my life, which I will allow you all to judge me for as much as you desire. At this point it is just something I’m afraid I’m stuck with.

That … Continue reading Sinatra: All or Nothing at All Review

I have seen both the Rolling Stones, and Sinatra’s documentaries, but of all of those, Kurt Cobain’s “Montage of … Continue reading Montage Of Heck Review

The Wild & Wonderful Whites of West Virginia Review

This kind of movie is normally far from my normal range of viewing material. I must confess my only reason for having seen it is due to it being a school assignment, and the only reason I’m writing about it is for the same purpose, so I figured, since this is kind of what I … Continue reading The Wild & Wonderful Whites of West Virginia Review

Memphis Heat Review

Memphis Heat

Long before the bright lights and pyrotechnics of today’s modern wrestling extravaganza there was already a thriving wrestling scene in America, several of them in fact, located in territories strewn across the United States, most of which falling under the dictum of the National Wrestling Alliance. One such territory existed in Memphis, Tennessee the birthplace … Continue reading Memphis Heat Review

The Untold History of the United States Review

Untold History of the United States

“The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilizations were converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.” - Samuel P. Huntington With this ten part documentary series (now with two … Continue reading The Untold History of the United States Review
