Home Movies, Then and Now

It’s 1979, and a group of Midwest teens are shooting a monster movie with a Super 8 camera. Suddenly, an army freight train carrying secretive cargo from Area 51 derails in front of them. Amidst the explosive wreckage, the abandoned camera captures footage of, well, something big and bad — and definitely not from Cleveland — escaping into the night. Like in all movies shot with any camera, a government cover-up ensues. Can these spunky little Spielbergs use their forbidden film to help capture the beast and save the day?

Behind the Scenes of Sucker Punch

If you thought action movies couldn’t get more thrilling than 300, imagine the toga-clad Spartan dudes as sexy girls wearing skimpy skirts and packing machine guns! In the new action fantasy Sucker Punch, directed by visionary Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), you get just that. Talented (and we mean that in the most lascivious way) young actresses Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone and Jamie Chung play super-ninjas who beat the kishkas out of comic bad guys in a visual presentation that’s similar to the above mentioned graphic-novels-gone-big-screen.

 When Your Date Overeats

You’re dating someone who seems like the perfect mate. The conversation flows, you two both love action-adventure flicks and rowing on warm spring days. But there’s a problem: Every time you go out for a nice dinner, your special someone gorges on the basket of sourdough rolls (with lots of butter), a big old bowl of fettuccine alfredo and can’t resist the flourless chocolate cake for dessert—only to moan about it the next day. You’re a health-conscious type of person and just can’t watch this scene anymore, but how to bring it up—“Honey, are you sure you really want the cheesecake tonight?” or “Do you know that pasta has about 1000 calories?” You know the only way to preserve their waist—and your sanity—is to speak up, but how can you do it without a bucket of fried chicken in your face?
