FORGET EVERY OTHER MOVIE BECAUSE “KUNG FURY” IS COMING

I’m really sick right now. I went to bed at 9pm last night and only got up long enough to drive my kids to school this morning. I’ve been lying on the sofa ever since, sleeping and trying not to die. I woke up a little after noon and picked up my phone. THIS was the first thing I saw. Don’t ask questions. Just watch it.

I did a little research and found out that Kung Fury is a REAL MOVIE that’s going to be released sometime in late May. David Hasselhoff recorded the theme song and it just hit YouTube yesterday. Even cooler, Kung Fury started out as a Kickstarter project and raised over $600,000 to get off the ground. The fact that random people threw in THAT MUCH MONEY to make this thing happen gives me a new faith in humanity.

Here’s a link to the Wiki page, if you want to read more about it. I could type it all out but…leave me alone. I’m sick. “Kung Fury” on Wikipedia

Finally, I need to say THANK YOU STEPHEN JONES for sending me this link. I should probably be very concerned that you saw “True Survivor” and thought of ME, but I’m not.

Have you watched it yet? Why haven’t you watched it yet?

PODCAST: The BOOZY MOVIE Film Critics Are PUMPED About “Ex Machina”

The band was back together this week! Richie Whitt, Sybil Summers, Rebekah Black and I saw “Ex Machina” and WOW! We were so inspired by this one that we waxed poetic like real Film Critics. Well, the Jamesons helped. Listen to the podcast and sorry about all the pubic-hair talk.

BOOZY MOVIES Reviews “The Longest Ride”

I changed the name of the Podcast this week. I did this for several reasons. First of all, Richie Whitt & Sybil Summers gave me nonstop hell about it, claiming that it didn’t make sense. I insisted they were wrong but several people also came forward to say the name was confusing. Don’t you hate it when you’re WRONG? So Wine ‘N Film Critics is now Boozy Movies. Happy?

This week was different because we went to a special screening of The Longest Ride WITH the author Nicholas Sparks and the stars, Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood. Also, I was the only one drinking. Fortunately, I’m not above drinking alone.

MOVIE REVIEW: “I’ll See You In My Dreams” & Blythe Danner at the DIFF!

Emmy and Tony winning actress Blythe Danner is coming to town!

She will be at the Dallas International Film Festival’s Opening Night on April 9th, where she will accept The Dallas Star Award. Blythe is known to many as Gwyneth Paltrow’s mother, which is too bad because she was a great actress before she ever became a mom. Danner starred in Pat Conroy’s The Great Santini and The Prince of Tides long before she made any of those Focker movies, and who can forget her run as Will’s mom on Will & Grace?

Blythe will also attend a screening of her latest film I’ll See You In My Dreams on DIFF’S Opening Night. Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW (PODCAST): Get Drunk & Watch “Get Hard”

We were REALLY excited about taping this podcast because we hadn’t seen each other in weeks. Maybe that’s why everything went south so fast. Maybe that’s why we drank more and cussed more and went places that we NEVER should have gone. Whatever the reason, it resulted in our FILTHIEST Wine ‘N Film Critics to date. Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW: The New “Cinderella” & Cate Blanchett as the Original Mean Girl

A quick GOOGLE search will tell you that a “Cinderella Complex” describes a woman who isn’t capable of changing her bad situation. She needs to be rescued by a man. I’m very familiar with this term because my mother warned my sister and I about it when we were young. We would read the Disney Princess stories and then discuss the elaborate weddings we’d have with our own beautiful, wealthy Princes.

“YOU have a Cinderella Complex,” Mom would say and even though we were little and didn’t know what it meant, it effectively killed the fantasy. Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW: “Chappie” & Why Humans Suck

One thing is abundantly clear from Director Neill Blomkamp’s movies.

Human Beings suck.

We’re heartless and self-serving and usually very dangerous. The humans who AREN’T hell-bent on world domination are most often blindly serving some terrible political machine. Blomkamp made his thoughts clear to audiences in the excellent District 9 and then the disappointing Elysium so it’s no surprise that his new hero is a robot. Continue reading →
