Re: “Admission

Try as you might, my lovely wife will drag me to this and I will have to laugh at every other joke if I want any chance at getting laid later in the night. Sometimes I think she married me just because I have a slight resemblance to Paul Rudd.

Re: “The Kansas City FilmFest announces a lineup worth your spring movie money

Make no mistake, most bronies are people with paedophilic tendencies or have at least been imprinted early with a sexual desire to their stuffed animals.

No sane person would allow their kid around a brony.

Re: “West of Memphis' happy ending isn't really very happy

Lol at the comments on here. They told other's they commited the crime? So small town hearsay is evidence now? Stories from other prisoners trying to cut deals is evidence? Echols wife is not a film maker. An Alford is not a guilty plea its a no contest whilst maintaining your plea of innocence. WM3truth is also very one sided to be quite honest.

Re: “West of Memphis' happy ending isn't really very happy

If they "found blood" on that necklace then how come years later when the defense had the funds to do their own DNA tests not one of the wm3's DNA was found at the crime scene? Sounds like that necklace was just another one of the states made of evidences. YOU read both sides of the story.

Re: “West of Memphis' happy ending isn't really very happy

The West Memphis Three were found guilty once and plead guilty a second time last year instead of waiting for a trial. Misskelley (one of the 3) confessed FIVE times, three times to the detectives, once to his lawyers and once to the police. Both Echols and Baldwin (one of the 3) told others they committed the crimes. Echols had a long history of violence, threats of violence and psychotic behavior (see Exhibit 500).

Police took a necklace from Echols when he was arrested. An outside crime lab later found blood from two distinct DNA sources on the necklace. One source was consistent with Echols, the other with Baldwin and one of the victims. A car load of people saw Echols in muddy clothes near the crime scene. Read alternative sources about the case like wm3truth, not just the one-sided movies,

Re: “West of Memphis' happy ending isn't really very happy

I never felt comfortable with how the celebrity community embraced this case. It seemed like for all the calls of "goth persecution" there were a lot of celebrities looking to score points with goth teenagers.

There were multiple confessions, witnesses to the crime, Damien's own bragging admission, the list goes on.

No surprise this was all pushed by someone who had an unhealthy obsession with Damien Echols.

Ironic because a point of contention by the prosecution is that Echols was a Manson like figure who could use his sociopathy to influence others to do his bidding. And who better than your filmmaker 'wife' that you married in prison.

There is a big difference between an Alford and time served and being "innocent", or even being not guilty.

Re: “KC filmmaker Todd Sheets reveals some of his Forbidden Secrets

Great article!!! Thank you so much for everything! I actually did 2 movies after Zombie Bloodbath 3, one was Fear of The Dark and the other Whispers In The Gloom. Both with Antwoine Steele who is still with me in the new film. Both did pretty well on an international market level, and both will be hitting USA DVD Summer 2013 with a huge box set being released of my films from 1995 to 2005. I did stop making films in 2005 due to the radio show and how busy I was.

Re: “Jack Reacher

Speaking from a pure entertainment perspective, which is what movies tend to do best, we liked Reacher. There are plenty of military complex type weapons, which we all love, love, love but not so much blood. Isn't that tidy. 90 minutes of good clean family fun. Bring the kiddies.

Re: “This Is 40: Judd Apatow's midlife boner

Well done. I agree 100% with this review. This is the worst film I've seen in a long, long time--nothing funny, nothing likable, and I left feeling angry.

Re: “Les Misérables

I also felt like it was a missed opportunity. It seemed like the director never took advantage of the fact that in movie form certain scenes could really soar beyond what is possible on a stage, but the movie didn't explore that.
The opening scene (way to long) and the closing scene (best in the movie and way to short on panorama) were the only times the movie moved away from overly tight close ups which were effective in some scenes, but got very boring during the two and a half hour plus movie.
The music and story line are straight from the show. I guess not a big surprise considering the stage productions huge following, so it is what it is. If you like the musical you'll sit thru the movie. I dream a dream on a small scale, recorded live on film is gutrenching. A great performance.

Re: “This Is 40: Judd Apatow's midlife boner

Wow. I saw the movie tonight. It was genuinely funny in some places. The actors were great. The Melissa McCarthy scene was very funny. Make sure you stay for the credits, because they show long outtake of the crucial McCarthy scene that is hilarious and makes if worth sitting through the movie.

My reaction was funny in parts with great actors (really all of them) doing fine jobs, but an "uneven" and "disconnected" movie. I think this review (while probably too harsh) decribes part of what I felt. The husband and wife were great actors, but there was not really an explanation or way to understand their shifts during the movie. I also was annoyed by how two modest and unsuccessful businesses supported this great lifestyle, but I may be too much of a realist. The movie dragged early, but got better over time. The guy from How I Met Your Mother was very good in a small (and disconnected) role.

Re: “The Hobbit

As if 3 movies that were 3 hours of walking through a forest weren't enough they now need 3 more movies 3 hours long of walking through a forest.

No wonder I never go to movies anymore.
