After planning a cunning kidnapping plan, they aren't prepared for Dawson to refuse to pay.

Free Fall

      A top executive is killed in an apparent suicide leap from the skyscraper headquarters of Gault Capital. But when the dead man's loyal protégé Jane Porter (Sarah Butler of I Spit Your On Grave) uncovers some startling criminal evidence, the corporation calls in their crisis manager (D.B. Sweeney of Taken 2 and Fire in the Sky) to silence her forever. He will trap Jane in an elevator between floors. It is a holiday weekend in the empty building. And for one desperate woman, surviving a cold-blooded killer may now mean a very long drop to the ground floor. Ian Gomez (Cougar Town) and screen legend Malcolm McDowell (The Artist, A Clockwork Orange) co-star in this intense suspense thriller from the producers of the Halloween and Final Destination movies.


Beethoven's Treasure Tail 

 Get ready to howl with laughter in this all-new family comedy starring America's favorite St. Bernard, the one and only Beethoven!

When Beethoven befriends a local boy (Bretton Manley, Ted), he helps him find a pirate map to lost treasure and together they em-bark on an adventure that brings the whole town together. Co-starring Morgan Fairchild (Flamingo Road), Kristy Swanson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), it's a heartwarming "tail" about finding fun wherever your nose leads you.


LFO: The Movie

Robert, a loner whose sole passion in life is the analog sound equipment in his basement, stumbles upon a frequency that allows him to hypnotize other people. Testing it on his attractive new neighbor and her unassuming husband, he soon realizes the power he now wields. But as Robert indulges in the increasingly twisted possibilities of having complete control over others, things quickly get out of hand. In this critically acclaimed, darkly humorous science fiction thriller, director Antonio Tublen examines one man s determined quest for power.


Plastic

Beneath

    Veteran coal miner George Marsh (Jeff Fahey, Planet Terror) is about to retire, and he's giving his daughter Samantha a tour of the mine on his last day.  Six-hundred feet below the surface, a catastrophic collapse traps them and a crew of miners, leaving them with 72 hours before rescue workers arrive. But the drill strike that caused the disaster also opens a hole into an unknown chamber, and before long the crew suspects they might not be alone. With their oxygen supply steadily depleting, George and Samantha must figure out a way to stay alive as resources become scarce and the danger rises. Inspired by true events, BENEATH is a claustrophobic, bleak, and terrifying look at humanity in its deepest, darkest places.


Behaving Badly

   In this fast-paced, outrageously funny, all-star romp, socially awkward high schooler Rick Stevens (Nat Wolff) is willing to do whatever it takes to win the heart of the girl (Selena Gomez) of his dreams ... and he does mean anything. But love s a bitch! Particularly when your sights are set on the most beautiful and popular girl at school.


4 Minute Mile

       4 MINUTE MILE is the inspirational story of a high school track star who falls on hard times. A new coach puts him on the right path but his resolve is threatened as tragedy strikes and forces him to confront everything that has been holding him back.


Down and Dangerous

      With the Feds always tracing his last move, the creative and disciplined Paul Boxer is already smuggling a new shipment of drugs into the country without ever firing a single bullet. As a rule, he always operates alone. But when a dangerous group of mid-level traffickers, who gunned down his friend in cold blood, bully him into creating the perfect plan to smuggle several kilos of cocaine into America from Mexico, he instead puts in motion a strategy that would release him from their grip for good. Everything goes accordingly until a quick-witted woman from his past recruits him to help her get out of this rival group of traffickers. It is then that Paul is brought face-to-face with the man who has been hunting him down, and must choose between his life as a smuggler and the principles he holds as a man.


Good People

  A young American couple (James Franco and Kate Hudson) falls into severe debt while renovating a home in London. When they discover that the tenant in the apartment below them was murdered and left $400,000 cash stashed in the ceiling, the couple thinks all of their problems are solved…but that's when very bad things start happening to good people.


The Prince

     A man with ties to the dark and foreboding gangster lifestyle is forced to make a thorough investigation into his former career after a frightening event occurs. Upon the alleged kidnapping of his daughter, Omar leaves his peaceful life as a mechanic to find her and restore happiness to his family. As action and tragedy ensues, Omar must come face to face with a man who was once his rival to discover the whereabouts of his little girl. A life rife with crime is not meant for Omar, but in order to find his daughter, he may have to revert to questionable old ways.

Fun, Educational Free Apps by Kids Academy Review #MomBuzz #FreeKidsApps

We love working with Kids Academy and they have some really awesome FREE Learning Apps that you can download right now! Let your children have a blast while learning phonics, alphabet, spelling, writing and more. Check out what we think of them!



I love this app! Why? Because my children are learning so much and having a blast with phonics, spelling and more.  The awesome thing is that they are having so much fun, they don’t even realize just how much they are leaning. There is just so much to do with this app that they can play for hours and never get bored.



With so many different activities encompassed in this app, my children can go from tracing numbers and letters and learning lower and uppercase alphabet  to collecting fireflies. The rewards system is awesome and gives them that positive reinforcement that makes them want to keep learning.



This app is loved by not only my younger kids, but my older ones as well. It’s a fun way to learn songs, letters and animal sounds. Go on a farm adventure while singing the all time classic B I N G O. By touching each animal, you can hear the sound the animal makes and even hear it talk. The colorful pictures and fun interaction make this an all around fun app to be enjoyed by all.

Spice Up Your Lunch with Macho Mayo Review #holidaygiftguide

Disclosure: I received one or more products mentioned above for review purpose. No other form of compensation was received. My opinions are my own.

No one likes the same old boring sandwiches for lunch so we are always looking for new ways to give our favorites new life and creative flavors. One awesome and easy way to do this is by changing your condiments up!

I recently had the opportunity to work with Stateside Man Goods to review to review their Macho Mayo! Stateside Man Goods has a variety of specialty snack products, gourmet care and gift packages, charity packages and so much more. They even offer Military Care Packages too! 


Macho Mayo is a gourmet spicy mayo perfect for your favorite sandwiches, as a dip or right out of the jar. Yes, we did that! We received a jar of the Spicy Roasted Jalapeno and a jar of  Zesty Roasted Green Chile for review. 


Warning: Macho Mayo is not for the faint of heart!
If you can't handle the heat, then stay away from the Macho Mayo!


One of my husbands favorite sandwiches is homemade chicken salad, so I decided this would be the perfect deal to spice up first. I used the Spicy Roasted Jalapeno! Packed full of heat and flavor, this was a perfect combination. Nicely seasoned chicken kicked up a notch with a spicy, but light mayo. A hearty creation enjoyed by the manly crowd! 


Remember when I said Macho Mayo was perfect for dipping? Oh yes, it compliments french fries very well! Believe it or not, mayo is the perfect dipping sauce for fries and this was my favorite combination as I love all things potato and french fries are my weakness. While the Zesty Roasted Green Chile was really good, I loved the Spicy Roasted Jalapeno even better. 

Who loves Deviled Eggs? I know we do! Why not spicy them up with Macho Mayo? Mmmm Mmmm Good. We loved the extra punch of heat in each bite. 


What I really love about Macho Mayo besides the taste is that it contains a 1/3 less calories and fat than traditional mayo. My husband, while he could care less about the fat and calories was just interested in the mayo...He loves it! He is all about the spice and this has been his go to condiment for almost a week now. Sandwiches, Hot Dogs, French Fries, Chicken Nuggets...it doesn't matter, he's using the Macho Mayo!!! 

Looking for the perfect gift for the man in your life? Look no further as they would love a gift basket filled with Macho Mayo and I'm sure that you could find plenty of other goodies to fill the basket with such as their Jerky and Summer Sausage, Chips, Trail Mixes, Pretzels, Popcorn and Sweets or you could just order a Specialty Gift Package straight from Stateside Man Goods

PSE Fire-Flite 33 Compound Bow



I grew up sort of late in life since I really didn't have a father figure in my life, so with that, I started hunting later in life as well. I think I was 27 when I finally when on my first hunt and took my first buck. After that moment, I became hooked. Buck Fever set in and every year I was out in the woods or up in the stand. It didn't matter whether it was sunny, rainy, cold or warm, I was out and waiting for the recreation of excitement of hunting for sport and food. Nothing in this world makes a man feel like a man than being able to go out into the wild and harvest their own food. Over the years and a few misses, I have learned that the Indian word "Vegetarian" means "bad hunter".


But, no matter if I came home with a kill or not, the experience was ever-growing in my life. My first few years were rifle hunting only. Later on, I moved to Michigan and the lower part of Michigan means that you hunt with either bow, black powder, or shotgun; so of course I ended up going shotgun hunting. Wanting to be out in the woods more and increasing my chances of bagging that "Monster Buck", I began to introduce myself into bow hunting. My first bow was a Bear compound bow and I could shoot the balls off a fly from about 55 yards out. It was extremely accurate and well, your first bow will always be your first. 



Years later, I decided to change it up a bit and went for a newer model and design bow. I went to Cabela's and bought my first bow, a PSE Fire-Flite 33 Model. It has a 60 lb. draw and an 80 lb. let off and the arrows fly through the air with a whisper. 




I haven't been able to get out as much lately due to being out of work for so long and attending college at 40 years old. Financially, it's just not feasible. But, whenever the chance arises and I have the opportunity, I always head straight for the woods. Being a good ol' redneck from the south, I picked up a few habits that are somewhat questionable, but for a "Man Cave", they would be completely acceptable. One term while in school I had an Instructor that was out of Alabama. He was redneck to the "T" and he didn't believe that any rednecks lived in Michigan. Now while I am not from Michigan originally, I did live there for 9 years and utilized some of my redneck habits when it was too cold to head outdoors. 



Now while I don't suggest doing this in your home, because it could make the little lady angry if you miss the target or drive the kids or pets nuts because Daddy's doing dangerous stuff in the home, I do encourage anyone that is reading this to give bow shooting a try. It's exciting, fun, allows for a bond with the kids, and can be done anytime of the year. 



Since I have only used a PSE Bow, I really don't have any comparisons for you, so all I can give is my review of how well it has handled for me. It fits very comfortable for my frame and is very easily transported. After I set up the initial sights for it, accuracy became like second nature. Currently I can hit a target at approximately 70 yards out, but the last attempt was almost a year ago since when we moved I had to get rid of some items and my target was one of those items.  

Not only is bow shooting fun and exciting and helps to increase the relationship between friends and family, it's also a great form of exercise. As you become more comfortable using the PSE Fire-Flite, the constant pulling back of the string will build muscles in your arms, ultimately making you stronger and healthier. 

So, when you're heading out to go shoot and your wife or girlfriend asks what you think you are doing, just look them in the eyes and tell them you are going to exercise...How can they argue with that?








Food Glorious Food (Five Guys Review)


 My first review is one that has been waiting for the Man Cave, it is one of my visit to one of the, if I may say, World's BEST Burger Restaurants; Five Guys. As my family and I traveled across the southern half of the US on our move to Georgia, we came across numerous signs advertising "Five Guys Burgers and Fries". It finally hit us, we were hungry, so we decided to stop and give this new restaurant a try. While I say "new", Five Guys was new to us, but they have been around since 1986 when Five Guys began their journey into business. Through the '80's and '90's, Five Guys was able to perfect their burgers which are cooked in Pure Peanut Oil.

Notice near the center of the picture the huge bags of peanuts for any and all who want them.
As we stopped off for a bite, we were in awe at the cleanliness of the restaurant and how quickly the staff was moving to make sure that their restaurant visitors received their orders as quickly as possible while making sure their burgers retained their juiciness. We placed our order and found our table. We were later approached by a gentleman that introduced us to the Five Guys Peanuts which are all over the restaurant in huge white boxes. He told us that these peanuts were placed out like this for the visitor to have as many as they wanted and what to do with the shells once the peanut was shucked...."throw it on the floor" He said. He told us that that was what they wanted their customers to do. Still in shock over this comment, we watched and yes, he was right, people were shucking their shells right off the table onto the floors. Being able to do this just created a relaxed environment where you could leave your cares outside the door and just be as messy as you want and I have to say, the customers that we had contact with were some of the friendliest and down to earth folks we have ever come across. Was it because of the environment that Five Guys created? In my opinion, yes it was. 

Staff at the Covington, La Five Guys location
(L-R) Paul, Butch, Veronica, Jeremy, and Nikki (Gen Manager)


We finally received our order and noticed that there was a number on each item in the bag. If you look at your receipt, they have it listed as separate numbers and I thought this was a great idea. This way moms and dads or friends don't have to unwrap the mysterious wrapping to see who was getting what. If it had that number on the item, you merely looked at the receipt to see what was on it and pass it out to the expecting individual. 


Time for what us men like, to discuss the taste of the food. If you have ever eaten at a Five Guys, then you will be able to close your eyes and agree with everything I am about to say. These burgers that we ordered were as if Angels delivered them from Heaven. They were extremely succulent and juicy and cooked to order. When you unwrap your cheeseburger and see that some of the cheese is melted to the wrapper, that just means that you are about to experience something sinful. As I took my first bite, my eyes rolled into the back of my head as my taste buds experienced every seasoning that was used along with the perfect heat that a burger should be and juices flowing over the bun and running along the outside of the fingers that are grasping such a delicious work of art. It was the best burger I have ever had in my life!!! Each piece is so delectable that you scan the foil that it was wrapped in just so you won't miss a piece. I will say that the portion was big enough that one burger will satisfy a man of food loving proportions. I am 6 ft. and around 300 lbs. and I thought I would be able to handle two burgers, I was sorely mistaken. One burger and I was done. 

  




As I ate my scrumptious burger, I also enjoyed some of the Five Guys Cajun fries. I love how they were prepared, also in pure peanut oil, and then how they were served, in a Five Guys cup, not a menial little fry container like you may get at other fast food restaurants. This was a "Man-Sized" container of fries with seasonings that teased the tongue like a first kiss. The seasons ran over the tongue creating stimulating effect causing you to want more. 

Cajun Fries in a drinking size cup inside the bag.

If I was to give Five Guys a rating on the complete visit including: friendliness, cleanliness, quality of food, quantity of food received, and price and 10 was best and 1 was worst, I would have to give them a 25. I will never eat at another fast food restaurant and order burgers or fries again. Simply put, there is nothing in the fast food world that compares to Five Guys Burgers and Fries!!! So my suggestion for those in the Man Cave that are reading this, if you are ever near a Five Guys restaurant, stop in, unbutton your pants, have a seat and enjoy the trip that your mouth is about to experience.
