90 Minutes In Heaven Trailer


Don Piper is a baptist minister who has everything to live for; a wonderful wife and three kids, and a promising career; but his life is about to change forever during a trip back home from Texas. In a horrific road accident which saw a truck hit his car, he sustains apparently fatal injuries and is pronounced dead immediately by first responders. Hoping for a miracle, a fellow pastor on the scene prays for him, and to his joyous surprise, realises that Piper has come back to them. He wakes up critically injured, but that's the least of it; he also has a remarkable story to tell of being deceased for 90 minutes. As he slipped away, he claims he caught a glimpse of heaven, and that's something he finds incredibly difficult to let go upon regaining consciousness. He's ready to die, but his friends and family are not going to let that happen. Through the power of prayer, he is brought forth from the brink of death once again.

Dwight Yoakam

Country music songwriter TILLMAN FRANKS has lost his battle with a lengthy illness. He was 86.
Franks penned country favourite HONKY-TONK MAN and also made a name for himself as a musician, promoter and manager.
He began his career as a bassist with the Louisiana Hayride show favourites the BAILES BROTHERS in the 1940s and later toured with FARON YOUNG before becoming the head of the Louisiana Hayride Artist Bureau.
Among the acts he later managed were SLIM WHITMAN, JOHNNY HORTON and JIMMY C NEWMAN.
He co-wrote Horton's 1956 song Honky-Tonk Man, which was rerecorded as a hit by Dwight Yoakam.
Franks was injured in a 1960 car crash in Texas that claimed Horton's life.

Bandidas Review


Terrible
In the history of really silly wigs, Dwight Yoakam's long, crimped black hair in Bandidas has gone and snuck its way into the top ten. It's part of the silliness of the film that stops it from being a truly terrible movie. That being said, there's no other compliments I can ratchet out for this sucker.

It's the old west and things aren't well. Tyler Jackson (Yoakam) has used a six-shooter to take over much of the land in Mexico, and wants to use all of this to make connections and money through big time land developers. He makes a mistake when he shoots the father of Maria (Penélope Cruz) and poisons the wealthy father of Sara (Selma Hayek). After some squabbling over class, they decide to pair up as bank robbers and steal all of Jackson's money, getting tips from retired bank robber Bill Buck (Sam Shepard, why?). They eventually pair with a forensic psychologist (Steve Zahn) who starts falling for both the girls as they plan to breach Jackson's big vault.

Dwight Praises Naked Co-Star


Dwight Yoakam Melissa Leo Tommy Lee Jones

Country star Dwight Yoakam is full of praise for his new movie lover, Melissa Leo, after she bared all for a sex scene with him.

The 45-year-old actress' character has an affair with Yoakam's corrupt cop in Tommy Lee Jones' new movie THE THREE BURIALS OF MALQUIADAS ESTRADA (corr), but while the singer got to keep his underwear on, she had to bare all.

Yoakam says, "It was brave of her. There is an artificial standard of beauty that is put forth, especially with regard to women not being allowed to age gracefully.

Sling Blade Review


Extraordinary
Unlike most critics, I've been largely unimpressed with Billy Bob Thornton's work in the past. From One False Move to A Family Thing, I've always found his writing to lack depth and miss a true focus.

But then there's Sling Blade, and with Thornton in complete control as the writer, director, and star of the show, I do believe he's created a real gem.
