VANish

Thinking back Andy was impressed they were able to make as good a blood-splattering thriller as they did with almost all of it centered around scenes in and around a van. If a machete slicing off some fingers makes you squeamish stay away, but otherwise Andy gives 4 of 5 stars for VANish.

The Overnighters

The OvernightersGo to North Dakota and make millions, or at least get a job. That was the dream of many, and for some that dream became a reality. For many others, though, that dream became a nightmare, or at least a bigger struggle, especially for one Reverend who had his own troubles while trying to help others. Andy reviews “The Overnighters,” a 4 star of 5 documentary.

Cyber-Seniors

Can old people learn how to use the Internet? Hell yes! Cyber-Seniors is a 3 1/2 star documentary showing what it’s like to teach them, and before you know it you might be Shura Eadie in the movie making grilled cheese on YouTube, or Andy’s Mom-in-Law, in his life, discovering Snapchat as GrandmaEleanor. Andy gives his review.

Bound by Flesh

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to stuck to your brother or sister for all of your life, “Bound by Flesh” is a great documentary showing the challenges faced, especially in the days when “Freakery sells.” Andy gives it 4 stars out of 5.

The Final Member

Who knew it was so difficult to get a penis donor? That, in essence, is the underlying theme of “The Final Member,” one of the most riveting and at times hilarious documentaries that will make most men cross their legs and give that “protect my junk” gesture with their hands, while women will watch in utter amazement at the quest for a penis specimen. Andy reviews it and even he can’t believe he gives it 5 stars out of 5.

Hot Guys with Guns

Available through VOD now! On DVD May 8th!
Andy wasn’t really sure about watching “Hot Guys with Guns,” especially since he thought it was just going to be some low-budget, buddy movie want-a-be. Bizarrely entertaining seems to be the rallying description of the movie, and when all is said and done, he was happy he spent a few hours with Danny and Pip.

Thanksgiving – Time for a Break or To Move On?

It’s Thanksgiving-time and The Dude on the Right is thankful, but also reflectful. He thinks about the start of Entertainment Ave!, the many features that have been a part of the site through the years, the daunting task of updating the over 750 reviews and articles, but also thinks it might be a time for a break for re-assessing, re-evaluating, and maybe reconditioning. Or maybe it’s just time to move on.

Breaking the Girls

Even girl-on-girl action doesn’t seem to allow The Dude on the Right to recommend this movie, and he can usually find the good in any movie. Bad acting, a re-hashed story, and just plain nothing special and he almost gives it Zero stars. Sadly the 1/2 star is for a badly-acted, drunken scene.

Vitality

Do you need a refresher on how to live a healthy, vitality filled life? If you answered “Yes,” then go ahead and get yourself “Vitality,” a little documentary about living a little more healthy. It’s not the most groundbreaking of documentaries about health, but might remind you that the bedroom should be for sleeping and sex, and not for watching Jimmy Kimmel or the evening news.
