I joined Jane McGarry, Alanna Sarabia and Ron Corning on Good Morning Texas today to review a movie I can’t stop thinking or talking about: Get Out. If I said, “Get out of your house and see Get Out this weekend,” would you want to punch me in the face? Continue reading →
I was on Good Morning Texas today to talk about the weekend box-office and all the great movies that opened this month. Yes, we might be officially out of Oscar Movie Season, but there are still some good flicks to see, like 20th Century Women, Hidden Figures, The Founder and Split. Click HERE to watch my reviews, then check the Free Movie Pass page to see what I’m giving away now. Hey, if the upcoming movies aren’t that great, you might as well see them for free!
Remember that period of time between high school and college, when you felt completely invincible?
Everything seemed charged with excitement and possibility, “like there was sugar in the air,” as my daughter once said.
I’ve spent my life trying to recapture that feeling but I don’t have to anymore because Everybody Wants Some!! did it for me.
This is the latest from director Richard Linklater and, though it contains none of the same cast members, he calls it the “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused. It’s about Jake (Blake Jenner), who starts his freshman year of college by moving in with his baseball teammates. They spend the remaining days of summer drinking, getting laid and in general, just horsing around. Continue reading →
It’s been called the follow-up to Dazed and Confused, but director Richard Linklater says it’s more of a “spiritual sequel.” Everybody Wants Some!! follows a group of college baseball players as they prepare for the 1980 school year. Wait, that’s not entirely true. They basically drink and screw their way through the days leading up to class and it is a blast to watch! Everybody Wants Some!! stars Blake Jenner, Glen Powell, Wyatt Russell and more cute boys in shorty-shorts than I have time to list right now. It opens nationwide April 8th but, since you’re lucky and know me, you get to see it early and for free! Click HERE to snag your passes to see Everybody Wants Some!! then watch the trailer below. Man, why WERE the shorts so short back then?
I recently learned that I’m not supposed to laugh at Cards Against Humanity. I read an article that said laughing at the game’s horrible comments condoned them and sent a dangerous message. I thought I was laughing because they were so shocking, but I don’t laugh at ALL shocking comments. Sometimes, I’m simply shocked by them. Why would I laugh at these awful things when they were written on cards in a game? Am I a horrible person after all? I’ve always known I had a warped sense of humor but have I turned a corner and become simply warped?
I asked myself these very questions last night while watching Fox’s latest offering, Scream Queens. It’s about a college sorority that is plagued by a troublesome past and a murderous future. The cast reads like an “MTV Awards” list of presenters (Emma Roberts, Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas) and the pearl/faux-fur wardrobe will surely be copied by high school Queen Bees. It’s the DIALOGUE that’s most shocking though and the reason I now call Scream Queens “Cards Against Humanity for TV.” Continue reading →
