Happy Saturday, ScreenTeam! The crew is BACK with episode 25, this time with a review of the incredibly fun (though, very flawed) 2015 Dean Ambrose vehicle, 12 Rounds 3: Lockdown! When disgraced police officer, John Shaw (Ambrose), returns to the force and uncovers a conspiracy, it’s up to him and the twelve rounds in his gun to dispense justice when his corrupt brothers in blue lock down the station. Comedian and writer, Stephen Ku, joins the boys as we delve into the film’s myriad of plotholes (including one that would have cut the movie down to about fifteen minutes), the subject of why the Lunatic Fringe isn’t exactly the best fit for a plucky, likable underdog protagonist, and the boys’ predictions for future installments of the 12 Rounds franchise, including — because, of course — 12 Rounds 12.

Did You Know? During the movie’s oddly progressive sex scene in the beginning, the song heard in the background mentions none than the “Nature Boy,” himself, Ric Flair! Is anyone seriously surprised? Remember, ladies — none of you can be first, but ONE of you, can be next.
This Wednesday, the boys are back in the studio with stand-up/writer, Stephen Ku, when we take on 12 Rounds 3: Lockdown starring the “lunatic fringe,” himself, Dean Ambrose! Check out the trailer above, and get ready for episode 25 going live this Friday!
In the Kiefer Sutherland episode of On This Very Screen, the boys celebrate Paolo’s 30th birthday by unpacking WWE Studios’ first non-Superstarred feature film that totally isn’t The Shining — the horror-mystery-thriller, Barricade (2012)! Starring the curiously-cast Eric McCormack of Will and Grace fame, this flicks tells the tale of a widowed single father who’s haunted by the ghosts of his past after taking his kids up to a desolate snowy mountain cabin. In the review, the boys (joined by very funny stand-up comedian, Mean Dave) are divided by the movie’s refreshingly bold (and arguably unfocused) approach to both screenwriting and editing, while still having quite the thoughtful discussion about what makes an effective horror movie. Later on, they recast Eric McCormack in the lead role with WWE Superstars, and read off a hilarious “face turn/heel turn” review from the edgiest youth ministry teacher in America.

Did You Know?The director of this movie also helmed 2006’s zombie satire, “Fido,” starring Billy Connelly, who — according to Marc — may or may not have been a part of “Montell Python.”
The OTVS crew is joined by stand-up comic, Mean Dave, as they tackle the WWE’s first movie not to feature a WWE superstar, 2012’s horror-mystery-thriller, Barricade. Check out the trailer above and saddle in!
