Office Christmas Party – Review

Clay Vanstone (T.J. Miller) is the boss of a branch of Zenotek, a lovable oaf, and one hell of a party guy, but not the best at running a responsible business.

Bleed for This – Review

Bleed for This is a boxing movie in which most of the best scenes take place outside the ring. This real-life comeback story follows a pretty basic formula, but the heart and storytelling are what drive it to be worthwhile. BLEED FOR THIS is the incredible true story of one of the most inspiring and... Continue Reading →

Grouplove at House of Blues Dallas

This band is such a fun treat live, this was the third time I have seen them.  Each tour in support of their albums, Never Trust a Happy Song, Spreading Rumors, and now Big Mess has been a gathering of dancing, energy, and trippy colors rolling everywhere.  They are a casual group of performers that...

At only 96 minutes it is one of Eastwood's most blunt instruments for showcasing an American hero, but that doesn't mean its anything short of being concise and completely engaging. Rather than turning it into an action-packed summer blockbuster, Eastwood opts for subtle, quiet, and... Continue Reading →

Suicide Squad – Review

Suicide Squad has been both dreaded and eagerly awaited by fans. Interesting characters and an even more interesting premise, one would think director David Ayer could hit this one out of the park, especially after the success of such a dark release as Deadpool. Poor writing, however, was the downfall here that plagues so many... Continue Reading →

Nerve – Review

Nerve is a teen thriller and action flick that touts a shiny, neon feel and cutting edge social media combined with the age old game of Dare. This isn't an entirely original concept - we've seen it before with David Fincher's The Game. While Nerve doesn't pull off the story as well as the former, it definitely... Continue Reading →
