Who’s up for a love story that’s almost guaranteed to make you ugly cry? Looks like that’s the plan with I Still Believe, where a musician on the rise (KJ Apa) falls for a woman who appears to be terminally ill (Britt Robertson). It’s the true story of Christian Rock mega-star Jeremy Camp, but don’t Google him or you’ll get major spoilers. So, who wants to see I Still Believe EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Asa Butterfield was in town recently. You might know him from movies like The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Hugo, or Ender’s Game but my daughter, Emma, only knew him from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. She was still pretty angry with Asa for that particular film (you can read Emma’s review of it HERE) so she balked when I asked her to see his new movie, The Space Between Us. Emma changed her mind when I told her Asa Butterfield would be there and that he would answer questions after the screening.
“Good, I’ll ask Butterfeet why he ruined my favorite books,” was her response. Continue reading →
Aren’t you excited about The Space Between Us? WHAT? You didn’t know anything about it??? Well honestly, neither did it. There are just too many movies coming out right now and sometimes, a really special one slips through the cracks. The Space Between Us stars Asa Butterfield (who JUST starred in the Miss Peregrine movie) as a boy who is born on Mars. He wants to experience life on Earth, even though it will probably kill him. He develops an online relationship with a girl (Britt Robertson) and decides to risk his life to be with her. I have passes to see The Space Between Us EARLY and FOR FREE, but the screening is TOMORROW NIGHT!!! Continue reading →
Disney’s Tomorrowland asks the question, “What would happen if all the world’s greatest scientists, artists and creative thinkers were brought to live in one place? Could they build a better world?”
Tomorrowland is that place but we soon learn it isn’t the utopia it’s creators intended. George Clooney’s “Frank” and Britt Robertson’s “Casey” are called up to Tomorrowland at different times but by the same young recruiter (played by Raffey Cassidy). The idealistic wonderland has run across hard times and needs their help to rebuild. Continue reading →
The movie version of Nicholas Sparks’ best seller “The Longest Ride,” is NOW in theaters. It stars Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood as young lovers who are struggling to make their relationship work. Along the way, they meet an elderly man (played by Alan Alda), who tells them all about the love of his life. That love story stars Jack Huston and Oona Chaplin, which makes me wonder WHY IS EVERYONE FREAKING OUT ABOUT SCOTT EASTWOOD WHEN JACK HUSTON IS EVEN BETTER? Seriously, it’s Richard from Boardwalk Empire before he got his face blown off! That guy is beautiful! So take a listen to my chat with Bernie Mack on Westwood One and while you’re at it, let’s all gaze longingly at the gorgeous Jack Huston. Because Scott Eastwood seems like a meathead anyway.

I changed the name of the Podcast this week. I did this for several reasons. First of all, Richie Whitt & Sybil Summers gave me nonstop hell about it, claiming that it didn’t make sense. I insisted they were wrong but several people also came forward to say the name was confusing. Don’t you hate it when you’re WRONG? So Wine ‘N Film Critics is now Boozy Movies. Happy?
This week was different because we went to a special screening of The Longest Ride WITH the author Nicholas Sparks and the stars, Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood. Also, I was the only one drinking. Fortunately, I’m not above drinking alone.
Remember when you finished reading “The Notebook” and you were crying so hard you thought you might vomit? Then you saw the movie and the ending was even sadder than it was in the book?
You probably thought to yourself, “If I EVER meet Nicholas Sparks, I’m gonna tell him how pissed I am about that ending!”
Well, now’s your chance!
Nicholas Sparks is coming to town next week for a screening of “The Longest Ride!” Continue reading →
