No one ever talks about the bizarrely eclectic list of films produced here in the olden days. John Wayne's "Horse Soldiers" used Betty Virginia Park as a Civil War battleground, the Sidaris Brothers' movies blew up cars in the Louisiana Downs parking lot and gunned down b-list actors on the steps of the Chamber of Commerce.

I know this is a snarky answer to a straight question, but if you want to really laugh, get "Picasso Trigger" by the Sidaris Brothers - they shoot downtown Shreveport as PARIS!

I don't think we have to worry about "Not Like Everyone Else" going to DVD. That's one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

I am still waiting on the Roadhouse 2 soundtrack, with Larry Crowell and Dolla, to show up at the store. And though the movie was laughably terrible, it was still fun to watch and find all the Shreveport spots.
