Movie Review: Turbo 3D, 2013

‘He’s going the distance…he’s going for speed!’  Just another snail has a dream, snail gets super-powers, overcomes and triumphs flick?  I don’t think so.  Even though you know the pat storybook ending coming – you’ll still find something different and special about Turbo 3D, and just maybe you’ll be cheering as much as I was in the final act.  Turbo 3D is not about a fast snail and Indy car racing – it’s about brothers and friends being the vital support system in life we need them to be.  It’s about believing in yourself because they believe in you.

He's going the distance...he's going for speed!

Free Screening Passes: Bullet to the Head, January 28th

Gotta say I loved when Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger hit the stage at the Golden Globes.  Their “no, YOU speak English worse than I do!” skit was just adorable.  And just about right….

But you can judge for yourself, at least where Sly is concerned; we’ve got screening passes for his latest, Bullet to the Head.  It also stars Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) and Christian Slater, and is directed by Walter Hill (48 Hrs, Last Man Standing)

From IMDb:

After watching their respective partners die, a cop and a hitman form an alliance in order to bring down their common enemy.

There are 80 tickets available; each person will be allowed to download two tickets to this screening.  Nice, right?  I think so.

Phil Klein Dedicates Song of Resilience in Wake of Sandy, Pledges to Donate Profit to Help Storm Victims

Gotta love how folks are coming together after the awful devastation of Hurricane Sandy.  Take it away, PRNewswire!

SYRACUSE, N.Y., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — “Sometimes, the times get tough/Sometimes, the going gets rough/That’s the time we say/’Don’t count us out…in any way!'” Those are the opening lines to the country song “We May be Down but we’ll Never be Out,” written by 85-year-old retired music professor and OURMUSIC ( founder Phil Klein — and as people all over the Northeast suffer in the midst of the horrendous wasteland they once called “home,” Klein hopes country artists will record the song and donate their profits to organizations directly helping victims of superstorm Sandy.

“Americans are resilient. In spite of unprecedented storm damage, people are pulling together to overcome the effects of catastrophe,” Klein stated. “And that’s exactly the spirit ‘We May be Down but we’ll Never be Out’ conveys. We’ve proven over and over you can never count Americans out, and we’re proving it once more right now.”

“The piece was originally written in the wake of the Gulf oil spill, but it is even more applicable now. The country needs a musical rallying cry! Therefore, three free downloads (for anyone) are available at my web site The downloads include a recording of the song by Nashville’s arranger/vocalist, Tim Hayden, two different Karaoke tracks, and a lead sheet (music).”

As a member of ASCAP, Klein has registered “We May be Down but we’ll Never be Out” with that organization and pledged to donate his profits from the song to charities that will have the greatest impact on Sandy’s victims. He’s encouraging groups and solo acts alike to record the song and donate any resulting profits to help Americans affected by Sandy.

There will certainly be takers. “We May be Down but we’ll Never be Out,” an upbeat country song with a hint of Southern rock, has catchy lyrics, an energetic tune, and plenty of heart. In fact, it sounds as if Klein wrote the song with the purpose of rallying Sandy’s victims. In the third verse, Klein says,

“Sometimes, it’s hard to begin,
Sometimes, you just can’t win,
But that’s the time we say:
‘We know there’ll be a better day!’
And when we look into our hearts,
Our strength and courage starts,
And suddenly, there is no doubt:

“We may be down, but we’ll never be out!
We may be down, but we’ll never be out!”

Music, says Klein, has a powerful ability to inspire people. “We saw it in the days following 9/11, particularly in country music. Several popular songs were written and recorded during that time, and each one served to unite Americans and spur them to action,” said Klein. “I’m asking recording artists to help me have the same effect on people today.”

The trailers have hit the wonderful world of the interwebs; read on for more info on both films!
