“RockBarnes: The Emperor in You” - Movie Review. #RockBarnes
Erik Stolhanske (Super Troopers, Super Troopers 2, Beerfest) delivers an award-winning performance as narcissistic self-help guru “RockBarnes.” This mockumentary follows the illustrious RockBarnes as he hires a movie crew to go on tour with him and record his greatness for the world to see. But when things go awry, and his world starts crumbling all around him, RockBarnes does what any egotistical anti-hero would do: he fires the director, holds the camera crew hostage, and goes about making an epic opus of grandiose delusions.
Stolhanske stars alongside Madisen Beaty (“The Fosters), Chad Michael Collins (“Extinct”), Joe Hursley (Espionage Tonight), Erin Cardillo (“Passions”), Jack Plotnick (“Grace & Frankie”), Ethan Phillips (“Star Trek: Voyager”), Sonya Eddy (“General Hospital”) and James Grace (Super Troopers).
RockBarnes is now available On Demand!

This movie is different. Not for people under the age of 25-30. They might not understand it since they haven't had too much life experience yet. Rock Barnes is a motivational speaker. People love him, they want to sleep with him, and be him. But he's so messed up! The people who have put him on a pedestal don't realize that he's normal and as messed up as they are. The people who work for him, aren't his fans. But they help him, and keep their mouths shut about his private life behind closed doors. He keeps hitting on his assistant, asking her to sleep with him. She keeps ignoring him. Every night once the sun goes down, Rock Barnes drinks and drinks. He believes that if he doesn't drink until the sun goes down, that he's not an alcoholic.
Then, Rock Barnes gets served, and all the rest of his speaking engagements get canceled. Then things change from there. But, in order for you to find out how they change, or if Rock Barnes will ever change, you'll need to see “RockBarnes: The Emperor in You” On Demand! This movie is like stupid, funny. Check it out!
