There has been an awful lot of complaining about Hollywood’s lack of fresh material lately. Why are they making sequels to everything??? Yes, it’s been a repeated gripe for years, but I bet you won’t hear anyone fussing about Zombieland: Double Tap. So, want to see it EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Rebekah Black and I saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice last night, then recorded our thoughts about it. I don’t want to give anything away, but we got pretty worked up and eventually started peppering the review with our favorite swear words. That’s why you probably shouldn’t listen to this around your kids and if you listen at work, turn it down REALLY low. Enjoy!
Are you even capable of being excited about anything other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens right now? I get it. I feel the exact same way but they’re releasing a new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tonight and it’s hard NOT to get a little jazzed about it (Yes, even IF you’re still pissed at Ben Affleck for the whole nanny thing). That’s going to air on Jimmy Kimmel Live at 11:35/10:35 Central and they even made an exclusive sneak to get us pumped. It doesn’t show Wonder Woman though, so I don’t think it really counts.

One of the perks of being a Film Critic is that I get to take friends to the movie screenings with me. They love it and usually repay me with cocktails afterwards. Sometimes though, I can’t FIND anyone to see a movie with me because no one is interested in it. That was the case with American Ultra, so I had to see it alone. One friend even said, “The one with Kristen Stewart? Ugh, PASS!” That surprised me because I was excited about this movie. I’ve been a fan of Jesse Eisenberg ever since Zombieland and American Ultra seemed like the perfect vehicle for his talents.
Eisenberg plays Mike, a hapless stoner who is perfectly content working at a small town convenient store. He lucked into a gorgeous stoner-girlfriend named Phoebe (Stewart), who is way out of his league but takes care of him anyway. They live in slacker Utopia until the day Mike is “activated” and his past as a Sleeper Agent comes back to haunt him. This is where the fun really kicks in because Mike is even more surprised by his new skills than the audience. Mike and Phoebe don’t have time to explore them though because someone wants to kill them both and time is running out. Continue reading →
