C.L.A.W.: The Collective of Lady Arm Wrestlers Movie

I heard about C.L.A.W.: The Collective of Lady Arm Wrestlers Movie just in time for the Austin screening. Ladies dressed in costume arm-wrestling to raise money for charity? Sign me up for more info about that, y’all. More info about the movie, I mean, not about the arm wrestling itself. ‘Cause that would not be happening for me. Even small… Read more »

Raze: The eye of the beholder really matters!

Since I used to co-write a blog exclusively about women kicking ass in action films, I could NOT miss seeing Raze.

(For example, not mentioning the sexy… Read more »

Fright Night: Now that’s just not fair!

So there’s this gal, and there’s some danger. It’s some really bad danger too, not quite Terminator 2 level, but really, how the hell is she going to get out of the danger? Oh wait, there are TWO gals, and neither one of them are panicking. Wow, that’s cool. And there’s a guy, but he’s likable, and everyone’s kind of… Read more »
