[PRESS RELEASE] ‘The Popcorn List’ Set To Debut On The Texas Channel
by Devin Pike on Wednesday, August 11, 2010 at 9:51am

Hosts Rainy Flynn and Devin Pike, with decades of combined experience in and around the entertainment and Texas Independent Film Industry, are set to debut as co-hosts of "The Popcorn List," a new movie review show on The Texas Channel (available on Time Warner Cable) on Friday, August 13, 2010.

Originally conceived as "a 'bucket list' for movies," "The Popcorn List" takes the familiar format of dual critics talking about the current releases of the day and puts a unique spin on it, adding classic films and independent productions to the mix.

Each week, Rainy and Devin discuss three – five movies to give the viewer a fresh perspective on film. With viewers' money and time at a high premium, the two hosts will rate the movies not only on the merit of "good filmmaking," but whether each film is worthy of being added to "The Popcorn List."

As the independent film industry continues to grow in and around Texas, the State of Texas is being hailed as making strides to being the preferred location for the film industry (http://www.governor.state.tx.us/film/). Time Warner Cable's The Texas Channel and "The Popcorn List" look to capitalize on the current trend of filmmaking in Texas, and highlight the independent movie and film makers of Texas as well as other genres of film.
