By Kiko Martinez, CineSnob.netStarring: Justin Long, Michael Parks, Hayley Joel OsmentDirected by: Kevin Smith (Red State)Written by: Kevin Smith (Red State)After breaking into the independent film scene with “Clerks” in 1994 and developing a strong cult following with other projects like “Mallrats,” “Chasing Amy” and “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” Smith, in recent years, has decided to switch gears and give audiences a peak into the more sinister sections of his creative mind. He started in 2011 with “Red State,” an ultra-violent film featuring a group of religious fundamentalists who abduct a trio of teenage boys and hold them prisoner in their church. While the movie was something completely different than he had ever tried before, the controversial storyline of the horror/action flick far outweighed Smith’s execution. The setback, however, hasn’t stopped him from continuing down this unfamiliar path for his next movie “Tusk,” an attempt at dark horror comedy that illustrates Smith’s total ignorance when it comes to separating shock value and humor. ”Tusk” would’ve been a barrel-full of laughs if it wasn’t so disturbing.In “Tusk,” Justin Long (“Drag Me to Hell”) stars as Wallace Bryton, an obnoxious podcaster who, along with his sidekick Teddy Craft (Hayley Joel Osment), co-hosts a popular internet show called the “Not See Party,” wherein Wallace interviews (and at times exploits) interesting guests and then returns to the studio to share his experience with Teddy on the web. When an upcoming guest kills himself before Wallace can conduct his interview, Wallace is forced to find a replacement interviewee on short notice. When he stumbles upon a flyer from a man named Howard Howe (Michael Parks), who promises loads of fascinating stories to share with him, Wallace takes him up on the offer.Click here to read the rest of the review and to listen to The CineSnob Podcast!
The countdown is on for the historic first debate between Texas gubernatorial candidates Attorney General Greg Abbott and Senator Wendy Davis. On Friday, September 19th at 6pm they will square off at the Edinburg Conference Center at Renaissance in the Rio Grande Valley. The two will duke it out over key issues like abortion, immigration, border security and education.
You can watch the entire debate on our sister station, News 4 San Antonio – or here on FoxSanAntonio.com. If you have questions for the candidates, use the hashtag #rgvdebate on Twitter.
This is the first time in 14 years that Texas will elect a new governor. The debate will last one hour and rules have been preapproved by both participants.
Representatives from each side participated in a coin toss to decide who will answer the first debate question and who will ask the first candidate to candidate question. Each question will have a response time of one minute, and each rebuttal will have a response time of 45 seconds.
Wendy Davis won the coin toss and opted to start the debate by answering the first question. As a result, Greg Abbott will have the final remarks by going last for closing statements.
A great twist will be the candidate to candidate questions which are sure to set off some fireworks as Abbott and Davis battle one another over the airwaves with attack commercials.
