Adam Sandler can turn anything into a joke. Whether you laugh at the former "Saturday Night Live" comic's degenerate sense of humor is an entirely different matter. Typically, juvenile delinquent fantasies fuel Sandler's gross out antics. "Sex Drive" director Sean Anders and "Happy Endings" television series scribe David Caspe have ramped up Sandler's impudent humor far beyond anything the lowbrow comedian has attempted. "That's My Boy" (*** out of ****) casts Sandler as a shrill, low-life, irresponsible, adult-adolescent who neglected to mature. Imagine the protagonists of either "Billy Madison" or "The Waterboy" as unrepentant hemorrhoids, and you'll have a good idea what to expect from "That's My Boy." Actually, from premise to performance, "That's My Boy" qualifies as Sandler at his raunchiest. At the same time, "That's My Boy" may challenge even the staunchest Sandler's fans. Mind you, we're not talking the caliber of crude and rude that Sasha Baron Cohen doled out in either

Italian composer Angelo Francesco Lavagnino furnished "Hercules Against the Moon Men" director Giacomo Gentilomo with a flavorful, atmospheric score for his above-average but formulaic spear and sandal saga "Goliath and the Vampires," starring muscle-bound Gordon Scott as the legendary champion. Like the Reg Park outing "Hercules in the Haunted World," Goliath clashes with a supernatural adversary named Kobrak. "Goliath and the Vampires" doesn't take itself seriously so it is a lot of fun with the usual damsels-in-distress, palace intrigue, and a heroic protagonist whose triumph occurs only in a matter of time. Gentilomo and scenarists Sergio Corbucci of "The Mercenary" and Duccio Tessari of "Duck You Sucker" have contrived one of the more imaginative peplums, with several elaborately staged combat scenes. Indeed, a couple of counterfeit looking little monsters cheese up a scene or two, but the filmmakers dispense with these goofy bugs quickly enough after exploiting their shock value.Read More »from FILM REVIEW of ''GOLIATH and the VAMPIRES" (ITALIAN-1961)
In a New York Times interview, "Blade Runner" director Ridley Scott described his third science fiction film "Prometheus" as "'2001' on steroids." This comparison is entirely appropriate, particularly if you've seen the enigmatic but thought-provoking Stanley Kubrick epic about the evolution of mankind since the dawn of time. Scott's first 3-D spectacle ("Prometheus" is fun to watch once in 3-D) has elicited a wide variety of commentary since it arrived in theaters. Essentially, "Prometheus" (**1/2 out of ****) chronicles mankind's search for its origins. Two archeologists convince a wealthy corporate sponsor to create a spaceship that will transport them to the far reaches of the galaxy where they believe that they will find the answers to questions that the ancient etched in caves long ago. Of course, what they find is not what they wanted. Nevertheless, they do learn something not only about themselves but also their creators that will keep audiences arguing about the meaning ofRead More »from FILM REVIEW of ''PROMETHEUS" (2012)

Rarely does the cinematic adaptation of a novel surpass its literary source. Happily, "Wanted" director Timur Bekmambetov's movie "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter" proves the exception to the rule. Author Seth Grahame-Smith, who wrote the epistolary bestseller, also penned the imaginative screenplay. Incidentally, Grahame-Smith forged the monster-mash-up literary genre. In 2009, he spliced elements of a zombie story into a revised version of Jane Austin's classic masterpiece "Pride and Prejudice." The result was the "New York Times" bestseller "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." Afterward, he wrote "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter" and added vampire slaying to Lincoln's list of accomplishments. Compared with Grahame-Smith's 2010 bestseller, the celluloid version of "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter"(**** out of ****) is ten times better. Primarily, Bekmambetov's chiller dispenses with all the plodding biographical parts of Grahame-Smith's bestseller and pits the eponymous hero against

Marqus James and LaWana Gatlin, Instructors at HBCDA South Houston located at Club A&G Dreams. Often times I speak about two becoming one and how it creates a beautiful masterpiece. With each count and movement, I literally witnessed with my own eyes how both man and woman became one in motion like a work of art; beauty in its complete form. I was thankful when my cousin asked me to join her and her friend at a local spot in Houston, Club A & G Dreams, where everyone honestly knows your name. As I walked in, it felt as if I were at home. We sat at a table near the front of the room, next to the dance floor of course, and a couple began dancing to a familiar beat. However, the dance was not something in which I had recognized before. It was called the Houston Swingout. My cousin explained to me that the two on the dance floor was their instructors; LaWana Gatlin and Marqus James of the Houston Bayou City Dance Association (HBCDA).
The two moved effortlessly across the dance floor. He would guide with just a soft touch of the hand, light tap on the shoulder, or through eyeRead More »from One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Houston Texas Swingout!

That little white label on your couch indicating that it meets flame retardant standards might have reassured you that you would be protected from fire. But would you feel safe knowing the same label meant your couch contained pounds of toxic flame retardants that studies show harm human health and the environment?
My guess is no.
Virtually every couch in America has been infused with millions of pounds of toxic chemicals due to a little known California regulation that has become the de facto standard for the country, Technical Bulletin 117 (TB 117).
After nearly 40 years, the days appear to be numbered for TB 117, thanks to California Governor Jerry Brown's decision to revise the regulation and "find better ways to meet fire safety standards without the use of dangerous chemicals." This one act will have a monumental impact on products such as couches, car seats and other baby products made in the U.S. that contain
