This week’s Impact from Indiana, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh saw the roster pairing up together in a lot of different ways. Everyone seemed to be uniting in the cause of getting rid of Aces and Eights. However, was it full of outrageous fortune or did it not come together in the end?
The show began where we left off last week with aces and eights running roughshod over security and superstars alike. After, getting in the building The first victim was James Storm, who congratulated Aj styles on his new finisher family the rather un-phenomenal named Calf Killer. (I guess it’s the baby version of Cattle Mutilation).
Storm then proceeds to call out the Aces and Eights instead Bad Influence comes out and appeals to Aj about forming Fortune again and going against Aces and Eights. This leads to a fight between the two in which Daniels »

Israeli cinema has finally come up with its own Larry Clark. Similarly bearded and mustachioed, director Jonathan Gurfinkel, with an unrestrained vigor, showcases how secular teens residing in the affluent beachfront suburbs of Tel Aviv are every bit as horny, lonely, self-centered, and destructive as their fresh-faced American cousins grinding up against one other in the likes of Kids and Bully.
Six Acts is divided into six episodes. We first meet 16-year-old Gili (Sivan Levy) after she's transferred to a new high school and is uploading photos of herself onto a local social web site in hopes of making friends. The self-taken shots do gain attention, but not of the right sort. Poor, unstylish, and not attractive enough, Gili seems like an easy plaything to exploit by the "in" boys in town -- and that's exactly what they plan to do.

After last week’s Full Metal Mayhem, I was interested to see the second dose of Impact from Corpus Christi. There was a lot more action and a lot less Hogan. Although, the hand we were dealt with the Aces and Eights might not have been the strongest no matter how many beat downs they do. But I’ll explain soon enough.
Impact Wrestling began with a video package detailing the events of last week and that Jeff Hardy would not be appearing on this weeks episode. Then we go backstage and see the Sergeant in arms for Aces and Eights Devon talking to be younger, Garrett Bischoff and Wes Brisco that they need to take their match with Kurt Angle very seriously because he’s dangerous.
Wes and Garrett make their way to the ring but before we see Angle they give us a video package detailing the whole »

Chicago – I may never know how “In Their Skin” came into being, but I have a pretty good theory. Screenwriter/star Josh Close was so appalled by the unapologetic bleakness of Michael Haneke’s “Funny Games” that he took it upon himself to make the exact same movie, more or less, but with a much happier ending. It’s a noble effort but every bit as pointless as Rod Lurie’s proudly non-misogynistic remake of “Straw Dogs.”
Perhaps Close was so offended by the killers’ blasé approach to offing a rich family in Haneke’s film that he wanted to illustrate how white upper class folk are every bit as prone to suffering as the rest of us. “We’re not perfect!” shouts Close at his captor, a ruthless madman hell-bent on stealing his identity. Instead of finding their home invaded by two creepy male sociopaths, the innocent trio of »

Home invasion movies scare the hell out of me. Just the idea of someone invading your personal space and threatening you and/or your family scares me much more than monsters, aliens or any other type of creature that might inhabit a horror film. With that being said, like most horror fans, I’m drawn to what scares me. Anytime a home invasion movie comes my way, you can definitely color me interested and optimistic. I loved 2008′s The Strangers, both versions of Haneke’s Funny Games, 2006′s Ils and pretty much most of any other entries into the subgenre. Luckily, Jeremy Power Regimbal’s In Their Skin (formerly titled Replicas), lives up to most of the standards set by previous films of the sort.
Hellgate: On a visit to Bangkok, American Jeff (Cary Elwes, Saw, The Princess Bride), his Thai wife Sua and their son Kyle are hit by a truck as they drive to the home of Sua’s father.

When Rolling Stone met Larry Clark in Rome, he was sitting in the bistro section of the art-house film club Kino, chewing through his vegetable platter and sipping on freshly squeezed fruit juices as part of a new, vegan cleanse. It wasn't exactly what one would expect from the controversial director of Kids and Bully.
However, things are changing for the cult filmmaker, who was preparing that day to talk with director Claudio Giovannesi before an audience of independent film fans as part of the Rome Film Festival. One week later, »
In this roundup from the Encore and Mumbrella Annual, we look back at the best radio ads of 2012.
1. Earphone Bully
Winning a Gold Radio Lion at Cannes this year for radio specialist Eardrum and Sapient Nitro Brisbane, Earphone Bully is an anti-bullying campaign best listened to with headphones. In a bully scenario, it beats the listener around the head with harsh thuds, cracks and theatre of the mind.
