There’s no rest for the wicked and apparently, none also for Mel House – make whatever value judgment on that you like.

After seven years in the rustic wilds of Wyoming, I like to think I am more familiar with folks of a more “rural” persuasion. Having grown up and spent the first formative 36 years of my life here in decidedly urban Dallas, the people who lived in the outlying outskirts were kind of a mystery to me. So, moving from a metropolitan area of a few million to a state with a population of just 500,000 was a little bit of a culture shock. I mean, how could people live without late night Chinese food?

Quickie Review

Lately it seems like every time a new Cuba Gooding Jr. movie comes out, I say, “Oh, how the mighty have fallen.” “The Devil’s Tomb” doesn’t change that. The long, slow, hellish descent of Cuba Gooding Jr.’s career continues ninety minutes at a time with this direct-to-video waste.
