Downtown Dayton LGBT film fest celebrates fifth anniversary By T.T. Stern-Enzi Film has the ability to transform the way we see the world.

Takers

Taking And Wasting Time Is A Crime By T.T. Stern-Enzi Life is sometimes unfair. I’m starting off with that terribly trite observation in order to justify my harsh and very likely unfair assessment of Takers, the new crime thriller from co-writer/director John Luessenhop (Lockdown with master thespian Master P).
