The Backyard (2002)
One of the years best...
I was lucky enough to see this movie last summer/fall, when Paul Hough himself sent me a copy to review, and I can tell you that I was not disappointed. I have seen many tapes on backyard wrestling, the kind that they sell on late night infomercials, and this is not the same old crap that they are selling you. This is a film. This film tells the stories of young hopeful "wannabe's" and what they will do to try and become the next wrestling superstars of tomorrow. With little money and lots of imagination, these kids put on their shows, sometimes in front of 1 or 2 people and act as if they are working the main event at WrestleMania in front of 50,000 screaming fans. The things they do may not be healthy, and make you squirm, but they want to prove that they have what it takes to make it in the big leagues.
I dont want to give too much away, but do keep your eye on the man named "The Lizard". His story is one of my favorites. I would like to know what he is up to these days and if he is still going after his dream. Paul Hough is a class act and has always been kind to me and deserves all the best after making such a great film. If you liked "Beyond the Mat" I think you will find this more than satisfactory. If you didn't see "BTM" give this a shot, I think you will like it. ~Brad Lee
Grounded for Life (2001)
The Best Show Since Seinfeld...
"Grounded For Life" is definately the best sitcom since Seinfeld went off the air. The family is so real. As far as people comparing this to Titus, thats like comparing a Porche to a Pinto. Titus isn't even remotely funny. We really do need to get the word out on this show. I really think it should be in the Top 10 of the Neilsen ratings. There is sooo much crap on television right now, that Grounded is a breath of fresh air. It really does have that "Married... with Children" feel to it... and thats a good thing. Every show I have watched, since the beginning of the show, has had me cracking up. Don't listen to me, don't listen to the others here, just sit down, or set your VCR's, on Wednesday nights at 8:30 on FOX and see what I am talking about. I promise, you wont regret it :) Rating: A+
The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
Better than I expected...
I just watched "The Royal Tenenbaums" last night and I must say that it was an excellent movie. It was better than I expected, and I expected it to be good. I say, if you liked Rushmore, go see this movie. If you didn't like Rushmore, go see this movie. Gene Hackman was especially funny as the father Royal Tenenbaum. Great cast, great story and a great time seeing this movie. Now I can't wait for the DVD...
