I DIDN’T DO IT: upcoming documentary about a Mississippi man framed for sending ricin-laced letters to Obama…

Directly after the Boston Marathon bombing in April of 2013, Federal authorities intercepted deadly ricin-laced letters addressed to President Obama, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) and a Tupelo Judge Sadie Holland. The Feds traced the letters back to Elvis/celebrity impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis in Corinth, MS where they raided his home, arrested him and charged him with federal crimes that could have potentially put him away for life. In a bizarre twist, the charges against Curtis were suddenly dropped when evidence was uncovered that he was framed by Tupelo karate instructor Everett Dutschke who apparently had a long-standing feud with Curtis. Although Curtis was cleared of charges, he was released from jail with his home destroyed by the raid, his reputation ruined and his life in shambles.

Award-winning Oxford filmmakers Melanie Lynn Addington and Daniel Lee Perea obtained the rights to film a documentary on Curtis and the stranger-than-fiction story surrounding his arrest…

A scummy street racer with a heart of gold (Aaron Paul) is framed for a vehicular homicide by a wealthy sociopath (Dominic Cooper) who deals in high-end ‘supercars’ and illegal racing. When the racer gets out of prison, he plans revenge by attempting to win a massively illegal cross-country race bankrolled by the same wealthy sociopath. For some reason, he brings a condescending English woman (Imogene Poots) along for the ride. Just getting to the starting line of the race becomes hazardous when the arch villain puts a bounty on the rebellious duo.

The idea of illegal road racers being an organized, high-tech operation which utilizes hacking city surveillance cameras and air planes/helicopters to spot police patrols is laughable…

Since primetime TV is turning into a seasonal free-for-all where new shows are released almost haphazardly, two new supernatural dramas have now premiered on major network channels in an attempt to compete with the increasingly popular cable dramas…

“Resurrection” – In a rice paddy in China, a young American boy appears out of nowhere, confused and practically mute. Upon the boy’s return to America, FBI officer Marty Bellamy (Omar Epps) is tasked with finding the boy’s parents and returning him safely. Despite attempts to discover the boy’s identity, all signs point to the boy originating from a town called Arcadia, Missouri…

What we learned from the 2014 Oscars…

Now that the 2014 Academy Awards are over and the Oscars have been handed out, there were a few things I noticed about this year’s ceremony that confirmed some of my suspicions about Hollywood and the Oscars telecast:

Choosing the right host is risky – Ellen did fine, mostly benign jokes – except for suggesting Liza Minnelli was a man in drag. Seth McFarland was funny but offended EVERYBODY. Whoopi was awful and offensive in general the second time she hosted. Steve Martin and Billy Crystal were always a lot of fun. For a good laugh, google “Worst Oscar Hosts” to find out why some people might never be invited to host ever again…
