7/10: DOWN FOR THE COUNT
Thursday, March 29, 2018

Movies based on the popular entertainment known as professional wrestling have not fared well in translating the sport to the big screen. Movies featuring various members who wrestled in the past do mediocre business and a number of films starring current popular wrestlers have gone straight to DVD. The only serious film on the subject, THE WRESTLER (that starred Mickey Rourke), did well critically but not so much financially. And the one that did well at the box office, NO HOLDS BARRED, came out back in 1989 when star Hulk Hogan was at his peak. Knowing all of this there is little expectations to be expected about any film made about professional wrestling. So when one is released that is entertaining it should always be considered a plus.CHOKESLAM tells the story of Corey Swanson (Chris Marquette), a mild mannered deli worker who runs into an old friend from high school named Luke (Michael Eklund) as Luke attempts to hold...

1/10: Embarrassing Even By Pro Wrestling Standards

Amanda Crew seriously needs to change management, she done got stuck in another drizzler. A girl with those looks & to be continuously misused and abused in these horrible movies is an embarrassmentChelsea Green is a welcome & pleasant surprise. She's the best of the few wrestling has-beens in this flick. She truly has a bright future ahead of her provided she plays the politics well enough.The movie's basically about a small town girl that makes it big on the wrestling circuit and, for one reason or another, is contemplating packing it in. Amanda has a guy who's hot for her (naturally) and he lusts to be by her side.This movie seems to have been made by a committee of people with a slew of different ideas & things they wanted to implement in it. It's a slow steady snoozer with a lackluster plot, flimsy & unfunny inside jokes, no drama to speak of (Hint: showing the...

9/10: Pleasantly Surprised
Thursday, April 20, 2017

My kids and I were fortunate to be involved as extras for a few of the scenes that took place at the wrestling stadium. We knew it wasn't going to be a big budget movie so honestly didn't know what to expect with regards to how Chokeslam would turn out. We were very excited to be at its premiere showing in Regina and can honestly report we really enjoyed the film! The principal acting is fantastic and the story line is solid. Of course, we loved recognizing filming locations and some familiar faces as well. We would highly recommend it to anyone, especially if you are a wrestling fan, but that is not even a necessity. Looking forward to seeing it again

8/10: Fun take on a rom com
Thursday, March 29, 2018

I watched this on rainy afternoon expecting a boring cheesy rom com, but I really enjoyed it. Yes, it has a cheesy ending (thank goodness), but it wasn't boring at all. Michael Eklund is great as the new best buddy and the wrestling scenes stopped the film from being too sickly sweet. An enjoyable not too nauseating rom com
