MOVIE REVIEW
Based on the film Rompecabezas, Puzzle is one of those little-known independent films that sneaks into theaters with little to no fanfare, although the fact that it is being promoted “from the producer of Little Miss Sunshine” should help it get noticed somewhat.

Video of the Day: Jesus Tattoo

In addition to the video, similar billboards have been placed all around Texas and are making many people uncomfortable. However, if they see the video, they may think differently.

So, jump in the discussion, what to you think of this effort?
