The Dog Lover” follows Sara Gold (Allison Paige), a rising star at the United Animal Protection Agency (Uapa), a major animal rights organization that seeks to stop puppy mills and conducts animal rescues. When Sara is tasked to go undercover as a college intern at a suspected puppy mill run by the conservative, enigmatic Daniel Holloway (James Remar), she jumps at the chance to shine.

More importantly, she doesn’t see any signs of animal abuse.

Latest MPAA Ratings: Bulletin No: 2238

Certainly the title that stands out the most in this batch of ratings is 30 Nights Of Paranormal Activity With The Devil Inside The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and it won't be hitting theaters as it is a Fox Home Entertainment release, but I can't seem to find any information on it. It's not The Starving Games from the Date Movie jokers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer and IMDb has nothing on it and I think I almost broke Google searching for all those titles at once. Other than that we have what sounds like a strong R rating for Looper and a rating for the Aussie flick Wish You Were Here starring Joel Edgerton and Felicity Price. Now scroll on down and browse the latest MPAA ratings from Bulletin #2238. 23:59 Rated R For some violent content. 30 Nights Of Paranormal Activity With The Devil Inside The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Here & Now – Webseries First Look

I had the chance to read the script for a new webseries coming to you by the Ronalds Brothers and starring Judd Nelson, and it was pretty impressive. Now I get to offer up a first look trailer, and knowing what I do about the series, I'm very hopeful for this one. Take a look at some info from the press release, and then check out the trailer. Shot entirely on the new still camera (Canon 5D Mark II), Here & Now is a whimsical web series with a comedic flare. The series stars Judd Nelson who plays a guy that looks like Judd Nelson, and even though he isn’t, on occasion, he uses “Judd’s” identity to woo the ladies. Playing opposite Nelson is Kevin Berman who plays David, a barbershop owner stuck in a rut and looking for a second lease on life. This is a sweet but

Review: ‘Knuckle Draggers’

“How do you talk to women?” I would ask my friend. “With words,” he’d reply. I thought he was being an ass, but as it turns out, he was right. And that’s the funny thing about interpersonal relationships with the opposite sex. It’s the way we use words that may spell disaster for a relationship. In Knuckle Draggers, the dramedy from Alex Ranarivelo, we learn that ye olde story of love, life, sex and video games, can still engage and resonate with viewers. Even if we know the outcome from miles away.

Ethan (Ross McCall) has a problem. It’s called “life.” Dropping thousands upon thousands of dollars on a film school education, only to wind up a job you despise is not a very healthy existence. Ethan, still holding onto your his artistic ambitions has yet falter on his dreams. However, when a pampered and demanding

Festival Movie Review - 'Knuckle Draggers'

Knuckle Draggers

Starring Ross McCall, Paul J. Alessi, and Amie Barsky

Directed by Alex Ranarivelo

Not Rated

As long as there have been movies, there have been movies about relationships. One of the very first films to play for an paying audience was The Kiss, which was a 47-second smooch made in 1896. It was quite controversial at the time.

Obviously, the form handles love in broader terms now, with romantic comedies and dramas of every stripe, and even the majority of action films have some love interest.

It does make the world go 'round, they say.

Working outside the mainstream, the adult romantic comedy Knuckle Draggers examines men and women, but mostly men. In particular, how men work in and out of relationships, how they deal with women, and how their attitudes can be shaped by their male friends.

Ethan (Ross McCall) has just been dumped. His beautiful girlfriend (Jennifer Alden

Disclaimer: This review is about a movie that is a little off the beaten path for Screen Rant. If you know me, you know I like explosive TV and movies with a lot of carnage.

Quick Take:

Despite having a standard plot that we may have seen before, Knuckle Draggers comes at us with an undertone that makes it relatable and compelling. The characters grow throughout the movie and I came away enjoying the ride this movie brought me through. Knuckle Draggers was entertaining and kept my attention throughout.

Knuckle Draggers takes a daring look at how relationships work from the Pov of a “real man”.

The story starts out following Ethan (played by Band
