I remember learning in school about the Orson Welles’s infamous “War of the Worlds” radio hoax. It’s said that many people took into the broadcast as reality. We had the Tom Cruise led War of the World’s movie and other incarnations of this hoax on-screen, but we never seen the movie version of those people who took the hoax as reality. Now we get that story in Brave New Jersey. In the movie Anna Camp, Tony Hale, Sam Jeager and Heather Burns among others play villagers of a small New Jersey town that react to their perceived alien invasion. This film is a entertaining and fun. It’s a comedy and it plays on the bewilderment of these foolish small town folks. The cast works well.

Brave New Jersey is out now in select Theaters and On Demand

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
