I was on Good Morning Texas today to talk about all the big movies that are coming out this month AND review The Conjuring 2. I also got to meet their brand new host Alanna Sarabia, who is so gorgeous that I just wanted to stare at her the whole time.

Did I tell you that I’m a member of the DFW Film Critics Association? Of course I did, because I brag about it constantly. See, I started covering movies as a side-gig to my regular radio job. I never expected anyone to pay attention to my reviews, much less take them seriously. I was shocked when the DFW Film Critics Association approached me because some of my favorite critics EVER are members.

Anyhow, the DFW Film Critics Association voted over the weekend and released a list of our BEST of 2015. I’ll post them below, along with MY picks, which didn’t always make the cut. I’d like to add that we are presenting this list in honor of Philip Wuntch, a longtime critic for the Dallas Morning News who passed away this October. Track down The Lady Eve, one of his all-time favorite classics, and watch it with Wuntch in mind.

I was running late for my “Good Morning Texas” appearance this morning, plus I had my daughters with me, since they’re out of school. We were sitting in stand-still traffic when Lucy noticed that a May Fly was on the seat right next to her. Nonstop shrieking and thrashing ensued, which is always great when you’re stressed out and running late. I finally had to remove my shoe, lean as far as I could into the backseat, and squash it with my heel. That pretty much set the stage for the rest of the morning.
