CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com audio film review on the new film “Drunk Bus,” an indie about an aimless bus driver in a college town, and his unlikely friendship with a man named Pineapple, currently in select theaters and through Video On Demand.

Charlie Tahan is Michael, an aimless bus driver in a college town, assigned to the route with the most bars, thus the “drunk bus.” He has dropped out of that college, lost his girlfriend and is constantly being harassed by his wasted riders. When a fight occurs on the bus, his boss assigns a bodyguard named Pineapple, portrayed by Pineapple Tangaroa. The pair become unlikely friends, teaching each other the life lessons they need to break free.

    CHICAGO – From villain to anti-hero to homoerotic fan fiction icon, Loki has traveled a long way from the greasy-haired megalomaniac we have come to love. For most of his cinematic character development, Loki has been a foil to Thor’s massive himbo (n.: a very attractive, often beefy male who isn’t the brightest bulb, but is still able to shine because of his good-natured attitude and respect for women. Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
