Tony Kerns

Ok... the easy stuff first.  I was born in Tucson, went to high school here in Wichita Falls (OLD HIGH CLASS OF '99 REPRESENT!), and graduated college in Albuquerque.  I'm happily married to my High School sweetheart Lindsey and we have a beautiful baby girl Madeline (named after one of the funniest women to ever live, Madeline Kahn.)  I'm a huge geek, and proud of it.  At any given time by belt buckle is either Ghostbusters, Superman or Batman, I have many shirts to match those belt buckles, and have more action figures on display in my house than my 8-year-old nephew has in his toy chest. Now for the more introspective stuff...  My wife says that its quite obvious that I was born to entertain people.  In a group of people, if I'm not cracking jokes, people come up and say, "Are you feeling ok?"  Getting people to laugh at something I said or did, and I meant to make them laugh, is the best feeling in the world to me.  Of course I've learned the hard way where and when it is not a good idea to try to make people laugh... like funeral homes or a police line up.

Tony’s Review of “Iron Man 3″

Another film trilogy has come to an end, but this trilogy has done what few before have been able to accomplish, save the best movie for last.

Taking place after the events of “The Avengers”, “Iron Man 3” opens with a flashback to New Year’s Eve 1999 where a very drunk and cocky Tony Stark is speaking at a symposium in Sweden, laying his moves on thick to scientist Maya Hansen, and blowing off disabled scientist Aldrich Killian who is promoting his think-tank, Advanced Idea Mechanics

Tony’s Review of “Evil Dead”

Another remake?  Yes, Hollywood has been out of original ideas for quite some time.  However, “Evil Dead” takes the idea of a remake and does it the way it should, taking as little of the source material as necessary, and coming up with a new twist to make the new film a unique experience for the audience, both those new to the story and fans of the original

In Defense of Being a Movie Snob [OPINION]

I’m a movie snob; I admit it and I see no problem with it.  I’m highly critical of cinema because of my passion for it.  Yes, it’s an art form and art is subjective, but I also believe there are aspects to film, just like any art, that are measurable and go to determine the quality of the piece and the skill of the people responsible for it

Glenn Beck vs. World Wrestling Entertainment

In the current day of “Sports Entertainment”, the idea of pro wrestling being “real” is passé.  We all know it to be a physically demanding choreographed equivalent of a soap opera, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t going to take the scripted storylines to heart, and take offense when a storyline goes too far
