all the tropes and cliches dominating country music right now, isn't it nice to look to Brad Paisley for his reliable ability to churn out great pieces of country music? His last tune, River Bank, dabbled in some of bro-countrys cliches, but did manage to be quite a bit of fun. Still, I hoped his newest album, Moonshine In The Trunk, would hold some deeper music from Paisley, and lo and behold, the second single from that album, Perfect Storm, achieves my hopes to a tee.

After some slower weekends at the box office, two new releases (And a third potential one depending on final theater counts) aim to liven things up. They should be successful in this mission, but let's take a look at these new movies and their chances at box office glory.

22 Jump Street. Man, that was a great film. Hilarious, inventive, smartly script, just a terrific movie. And despite what the entertaining credits for that film implied, it looks like another Jump Street adventure is on the way.

Each Tuesday, I review a movie that can be found on Netflix streaming. This week though, I break protocol in order to deliver you a review of the pilot episode of the CW drama Arrow.
DC has had a rough time breaking into non-Batman related success in the world of cinema, but it must be said, their TV offerings are actually quite impressive. The two new shows coming out this Fall based on the companies characters, The Flash and Gotham, are among the most anticipated new programs of the Fall TV Season. The show that helped pave the way for those two 2014 offerings though is 2012 offering Arrow, based on the comic books character (surprise surprise) Green Arrow.

A Fight (And A Performance) For The Ages
David O. Russell has quickly become one of cinemas most prominent writer/directors thanks to his 2012 and 2014 features Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. Both received critical raves and massive box office, as well as vocal approval from this particular film critic. Both of those films, especially Hustle, are expertly made films, with excellent performances and thoughtful screenwriting. So I was eager to finally catch The Fighter, the movie made just before Russell reached his current popularity.
