Talking About New Movies on “Good Morning Texas”

I was on Good Morning Texas today, talking about some big upcoming movies as well as reviewing a few others. If you’d like to find out what’s opening in July OR hear my thoughts on The Legend of Tarzan and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, just click HERE.

I also previewed a new scary movie called Lights Out, but unfortunately all the free passes I had to see it are gone. Apologies also to director David Sandberg for almost forgetting his name! I decided to make up for it by posting the original short film Lights Out is based on, but prepare yourself. It’s scary!

Stephen King’s 2012 novel 11/22/63 tells the story of a time-traveler who goes back in time to stop the Kennedy assassination. If you haven’t read it already, do so because it’s a great story that asks interesting questions like How would stopping Oswald change the world? or What if it somehow made things worse? It’s also especially cool for those of us who LIVE in North Texas because King describes areas all over town. Well, his main character, Jake Epping, actually HATES Dallas but it’s still cool to read about his trip through the city and attempt to stop Lee Harvey Oswald.

J.J. Abrams is producing a mini-series based on this book for Hulu and James Franco is playing Jake Epping. They were in town this past week to film the motorcade scene and all of North Texas decided to show up. Portions of downtown Dallas were shut down for the production, which caused traffic jams and public outcry for days. I didn’t let this stop me from heading downtown, of course, because if James Franco is somewhere nearby, might as well go try to look at him. Continue reading →
