Then, we saw his resurgence in 1994 with Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.  Since then, he has had some hits and some misses in the movie business, and unfortunately, his latest I am W... Read More

There is something very cliché about waking up in your van with your band mates in a cornfield in the middle of nowhere.  Even more cliché is when you have to syphon gas from a car to get to your next gig.  This could be the beginning of a lot of great rock drama movies; but in this case, it is the opening of the new suspens...

Author Stephen Elliot had a pretty messed up childhood, which lead to varying degrees of abuse – both at the hands of his father and his own drug addiction.  At least that's the way he'd like to remember it.  The truth is probably something a little different.  He chronicles his journey to the so-called truth in his memoir, The...
