“Where’d You Go, Bernadette” – Fans of the BOOK Review the MOVIE

Have you ever wondered how film critics get to see movies before everyone else? Well, early screenings are usually held to promote the film’s release, but sometimes those screenings occur on the same damn night. That’s what happened this week with Where’d You Go, Bernadette? and Good Boys, so I had to chose one. I desperately needed a Comedy and picked the latter while some girlfriends offered to cover Bernadette for me. I’m tempted to NOT share their review though, because it’s far funnier than anything I’ve ever written. Well, read it anyhow and remember that I do have my funny moments (they’re just few and far between).

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?” EARLY & FOR FREE

I hate to admit it, but I don’t read much anymore. I’m about 100 pages into 3 different books at the moment, with no real plans to finish ANY of them. In fact, the last book I loved enough to finish was Where’d You Go, Bernadette so I’m thrilled they’ve made it into a movie! The cast is fantastic as well, with Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer & Lawrence Fishburne joining Cate Blanchett in the title role. 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.
