Comedy

Think Like a Man Too for sure has its deep-running emotional highs and lows—at times, thoughtfully brought to life by good performances from most of the cast. With names like Michael Ealy, Regina Hall, Dennis Haysbert, Romany Malco, and Gabrielle Union, the film's lack of excelling is not for a lack of talent.

But none of them work to justify this excursion—and sequel to the first movie about a bunch of immature men who can’t seem to take charge of themselves or their relationships. This time, they are all headed to Vegas for a guys’ night out while the girls get their own bash, pending one couple’s wedding.

The central problem is that audiences simply don’t get anything more than what we got the first time around. And even with Kevin Hart’s usual hyper-impulsive antics at their best, we still don’t get any sufficient payoff until the movie’s conclusion.

When Jesus Turns Down the Glory: 10 Worst Ever Christian Songs

It’s a sad testimony when even the creator of a thing realizes that the product isn’t what it was intended to be. Well, actually it’s a good thing. It just doesn’t happen often enough. The Christian music industry is, shall we say, not up to par with where its admirers (and even creators and ardent well-wishers) would hope it would be. And when even the average believer realizes that their music is not market-cornering stuff, all should know that there is a problem.

Now not all Christian music sucks (you might even find a few rock songs from artists like Petra on Joe Holman’s ipod that he still sometimes listens to and enjoys), but what makes the stuff that does suck suck is that what sucks sucks for a number of different reasons. We begin the countdown going from best of the worst to absolute worst...

Movie Review: The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

When free spirit “Jules” (Anna “Go Girls” Hutchison) tells her best friend “Dana” (Kristen “Revolutionary Road” Connolly) what a good time they’ll be having at a cabin in the remote woods, you automatically know and are glad that she has no idea at all what awaits her or her friends, and neither does Jules’ jock boyfriend “Curt” (Chris “Thor” Hemsworth). The same is true of their intellectual friend with his notably piercing gaze, “Holden” (Jesse “Grey’s Anatomy” Williams) and their stoner friend “Marty” (Franz “The Village” Kranz) who seems to have a better grasp of reality, despite himself. Takes all kinds.

After taking off in the RV up the mountain, they stop for gas and run into a weirdly cryptic and confrontational gas station attendant (Tim De Zarn). When they’re back on the road after a near-fight, it isn’t long before they arrive and forget all about it. Following horror movie suit in letting out their whoas about how cool the place is and how much fun they will have losing t…
