This guest post on Jeff, Who Lives At Home (opening today in theaters) comes from Robert Funke, who is currently studying Screen Writing at USC. We are glad he could join us for his review of the film and highly suggest following him on Twitter at @RFFunke! 1. I wish I could wink. Ninety-nine point nine percent of the time, I can’t wink, at least not in a way that’s helpful. I can close one eye while keeping the other …

Luck, Vendettas, and Madness: A Tale of Two Popular Dark Horses & Picking a Villain By Joseph Williams The HBO series, Luck, was canceled yesterday by David Milch, Michael Mann, and HBO executives after a third horse died on set during production. I watched the first episode. Production quality was through the roof, but I just didn’t care enough about it.  Ultimately, the show wasn’t worth the death of those horses. Investigators rushed to the set and HBO hedged their …

Movie Review: 21 Jump Street

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 1 Comment

Last week I got to go to a sneak preview showing of 21 Jump Street, which starts playing in theaters this Friday (March 16th). I wouldn’t normally have hardly any expectations going into a movie like this; however, at the time I went to see it, it had managed to pick up 12 positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes giving it a 100% rating. This intrigued me and built a little excitement going into it. 12 reviews probably doesn’t sound like …

SCOREBOARD: Team Colin: 10 points Team Joseph: 9 points Team Clayton: 8 points Joseph’s Expert Analysis/Venting: I couldn’t believe my eyes as I watched. Having watched every episode of Survivor, I can usually read the editing of the episode to figure out who is going to Tribal Council. Mark  Burnett and Jeff Probst occasionally throw us a curveball, but it’s usually pretty predictable in the first 15 minutes of the episode. So I was genuinely shocked when the guys’ tribe …

Tuesday’s With Tony: Stairway To Heaven

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Basketball, Featured, Sports, Tuesday's With Tony, Weekly Posts | 2 Comments

I’m not the only one who sees the value of Tony Allen. My dear friend Bill Simmons, whom I’ve shared many a podcast with, recently wrote his annual trade deadline top 50 most valuable players article. Well guess who’s contract was deemed most desirable for teams to acquire. Tick tick tick. What is Tony Allen for $300? You would be correct! So if Bill Simmons believes in Tony Allen, why don’t you? I’m not trying to twist your arm to …
