Top 5 Movies to See in FEBRUARY

Is it just me or did January suck? I’m biased because I’ve been dealing with a sick kid all week AND I am watching a man install a new hot-water heater as I write this. The old one sprung a massive leak in the middle of the night, which is why I’m still wearing pajamas in front of the water-heater man.
What does this have to do with anything, you ask?
Well, the point I’m trying unsuccessfully to make is that January sucked but February is looking UP, thanks to all the great movies that are opening. Here’s a list of my Top 5 Movies to See this month, so you won’t miss any of them. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “John Wick: Chapter 2” EARLY & FOR FREE

Just how much did I love the first John Wick movie?
I need to tell you a story first, so you’ll fully understand.
I met Keanu Reeves back in 1996, when he was touring with his band Dogstar. He came to the radio station I worked at and I was TERRIFIED. I’d taken the rest of his band out for drinks the night before and introduced them to several of my girlfriends. A good time was had by all except Keanu, who spent the whole night in his hotel room. I don’t know what I expected when he walked in the next day, but I was hoping he’d be light-hearted and fun, like the rest of Dogstar.
He wasn’t. Keanu Reeves was sullen and difficult, and he made it clear that he didn’t want to be there.
I had taken calls from listeners, and asked what THEY would ask Keanu Reeves, given the chance. The first question I chose was how he found his band-mates. Were they old friends or had they met another way?
“That’s a stupid question. No one wants to hear that. Ask me something else,” was his response.
I don’t remember the rest of the interview. I just remember how much I hated Keanu Reeves at that moment. You can tell from this picture that he was being a jerk.

PODCAST: “The Accountant” Had Us Screaming at the Screen

Rebekah Black and I saw The Accountant last night and had pretty extreme reactions to it. In fact, one of us even started yelling at the movie screen during the film. Here is our review and I’m proud to say that it’s 100% Spoiler Free. Well, at least no one behind us feel asleep and snored through it, like The Girl on the Train last week. Enjoy!

And because we talked about it so much, here’s the trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2. (SQUEEE!)
