‘Sports Ballz’ Does Sexy Kobe Bryant

Sports and web series are like egg nog and Canadian Whisky—mixed together they make even the worst of Mondays mornings tolerable. Athletes are natural pranksters and the world of sports is so rife for parody it’s no wonder jocks make the best SNL hosts. By now, we thought Espn’s plucky send-up Mayne Street and Vuguru’s Back on Topps have thoroughly mined the world of sports cameos, not to mention the one-on-self athelte punking Double Take (watch Shaq’s ep again) that bowed in November. But then comes this latest call-up, an indie comedy, Sports Ballz, from creators Jason Schmid and Jake Bern in its initial run on Funny or Die.

The Double Born and Plot Twists: A Movie Review

Director/writer: Tony Randel.

The Double Born has played at several film festivals throughout 2008 to 2009 and now the film is available on DVD, as of January 26th. The Double Born is 90% drama and 10% horror, with excellent performances from the cast all around. Described by the indie film review site Badlit as creating a "sexy, simmering slow burn," The Double Born gets the pacing right (Badlit). The feature also puts film director and writer Tony Randel (Amityville 1992) back in the director's chair after a ten year hiatus. This pause from film creating has allowed Randel to hone his skill, as the writing from The Double Born acts like a hook, that will not let go until this complex web is unraveled.

The tone for The Double Born starts as tense, pauses here and there, but stays dramatic through many of the plot twists in the film. Included in the twisting and

The Double Born

Writer/director Tony Randel turns to guerrilla filmmaking tactics for his latest thriller, The Double Born, and creates a sexy, simmering slow burn that features a smoldering, tortured performance from former indie film “it girl” Sammi Davis.

Based on a short story by Bram Stoker, The Double Born is recast as a trailer trash Southern Gothic tale about a middle-aged woman, Sophie (Davis), so desperate to have a baby that she “rapes” her husband Ephraim (Jon Lindstrom) in the middle of the night. Yes, Sophie is slightly deranged, made mad after a terrible tragedy that is slowly revealed, confined to her dark, claustrophobic little home and trapped by her own desperation.

Davis plays Sophie with just the right amount of anguish and confusion. It’s a performance that goes to the top, but not over it. But, also sprinkled throughout we get glimpses of the old Sophie, the woman who
