Tina Turner is the greatest female rock and roll singer of all time. At 81-years-old she has touched the lives of millions of people the world over with her music and life story. That wonderful music and inspirational tale are the centerpiece of the new documentary entitled Tina on HBO Max.
Originally released in 2017, The Wrestler: A Q.T. Marshall Story is an award-winning documentary about an independent wrestler trying to make it to WWE. It’s an underdog story about a regular guy from New Jersey trying to make it to the big-time. While I didn’t know anything about Q.T. Marshall prior to watching this documentary, his name was vaguely familiar. In a world filled with wrestling documentaries, including 350 Days, Nail In The Coffin, You Cannot Kill David Arquette, and The Resurrection of Jake the Snake, is this one worth watching? Read on for my thoughts.
Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and as the great Robert Englund once said, “Just because it’s a love story doesn’t mean it can’t have a decapitation or two.” If your thoughts are in line with Robert’s then you’ll want to keep your eyes on Shudder where cupid’s arrow is known to impale. Below are all of the gory details about what you can expect during the month of love.
I love animals. I often say they’re better than humans. After all, they provide us with unconditional love and they don’t have all of the faults and issues that humans do. Especially now, when many of us are at home because of COVID, our pets provide us with a level of joy and love that is irreplaceable. I also believe that until you live with a pet, you don’t fully understand just how profound that connection can be. They truly are wonderful beings. Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and I hope everyone reading this had a fabulous holiday. Mine consisted of a bounty of food and watching two movies with my wife: The Break-Up and Marley & Me, both starring Jennifer Aniston. If you’ve never seen Marley & Me and don’t want me to spoil it, stop reading here. If not, let’s dive in.
Today, I watched The Wrestler for the first time since it came out nearly 11 years ago. It is still a fantastic movie. It’s very much the pro wrestling version of Rocky Balboa, an equally fabulous piece of cinema that is gritty, authentic, and overflowing with emotion.
Edge of the Axe is a 1988 cult classic horror movie I never heard of, but I was intrigued by the artwork and the trailer so I figured I’d give it a go. To my surprise, it was a much more nuanced story than I expected. This, along with solid acting and character development, made for a highly enjoyable movie.
Over the summer I was reading Fangoria, and I came across information about a new movie starring Russell Crowe called Unhinged. I looked it up and learned that not only was it about engaging in road rage with the wrong guy, but it was coming to movie theaters. With COVID running rampant across the world, I definitely didn’t put myself at risk by going to a theater to watch this movie. However, I couldn’t wait to see it when the film made its debut on streaming platforms. I’m glad I did because it’s one of Russell Crowe’s finest performances and a rollercoaster of emotions.
