When keeping it real goes REAL.

We'll let tell you the details:

Abbey Niezgoda and Marc Jackson went to the home of Melissa Lawrence on Tuesday to ask her for a comment regarding the shooting of her 16-year-old daughter. Though the ABC 6 crew stayed on the public street in front of the Lawrence home, they were attacked by the woman.

As the video above shows, Ms. Lawrence throw  a rock at the cameraman. When that didn't work, she went in the house and got her bat. When the news reporter still didn't take the hint and get the hell from up front her house. Ms. Lawrence let 2 pit bulls out the fence and old school sicced them on the TV reporter. To be clear we here at Podcastjuice don't condone such behavior. Those pit bulls could have savagely mauled that lady. BUT. She wasn't hurt and she came to her sense and dropped the microphone and kicked rocks down the alley. Ms. Lawrence ended up catching a case. She was charged with 2 counts of felony assault. The cameraman aint do a damn thing but film. He wasn't messing with them dogs.



After Earth Review


I went into this movie unaware of the "critical" backlash it was getting by other reviewers. I walked out of the film loving it. Action Sci Fi but with a emotional spin on it. I go into greater detail on why I enjoyed the movie so much in the podcast. One of the main reason I identified with this film was that it centered around a father and son dynamic. Also the imagery of a black father and son protagonists in a science fiction film is unto itself ground breaking. The fact that Will and Jaden are father in son in real life is just icing on the cake.  Co host Qstorm has not seen the movie, but has read the bad reviews online. Has his opinion of the movie been tainted by those reviews? Does cynicism get in the way of our own perception of movies, before we see them? Listen to the show and find out.

Geeked Out – Marvel vs. The Cast of The Avengers 2


Charles Ramsey hailed as a hero and rightfully so. Is the media making him out to be a minstrel? Are some blacks being to harsh? We go in! Also Marvel may have a slight problem on there hands in regards to the upcoming Avengers 2.  Rumors are circulating that the actors want more money before the come back for the sequel. Robert Downey Jr. alone made over 50 million on the 1st Avengers movie. Now with Iron Man 3 having just made over 1 billion at the box office (Worldwide), Marvel is gonna need to open there wallet to get him back.  How much is to much? Qstorm thinks Marvel can pay 100 million to the cast alone., then another 200 million to make the movie.  Should Marvel spend 300 million on The Avengers 2?

Riddick Trailer


Vin Diesel is back with another Riddick movie. I was a big fan of Pitch Black, the 1st film featuring Riddick. This looks like it's back to the basic format, of Riddick taking cats down and fighting monsters.

Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.
