I was TERRIFIED about being on TV today but I think it went pretty well. I DID say “disingenuine” which I’m pretty sure isn’t even a word, but I held it together otherwise. Thanks again to Christine Visneau of Veecaravan for outfitting me and to everyone at Good Morning Texas for having me on. I’ll be back next month to review Jurassic World and I heard they might have something fun/scary in store!
Disney’s Tomorrowland asks the question, “What would happen if all the world’s greatest scientists, artists and creative thinkers were brought to live in one place? Could they build a better world?”
Tomorrowland is that place but we soon learn it isn’t the utopia it’s creators intended. George Clooney’s “Frank” and Britt Robertson’s “Casey” are called up to Tomorrowland at different times but by the same young recruiter (played by Raffey Cassidy). The idealistic wonderland has run across hard times and needs their help to rebuild. Continue reading →
I saw Mad Max: Fury Road with Sybil Summers, Richie Whitt and Mark Blitch last night and COULD NOT GET OVER THE GUITAR PLAYER! Forget our review, you need to see this movie just to see THAT GUY!
I’m kidding. Please listen to the review. Also, don’t forget to grab free passes to see Poltergeist with us next week. You can get those by clicking HERE.
New in theaters this week is the highly anticipated sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. If your family is like mine, this movie and whether or not my kids can see it has been a constant topic of discussion. Fortunately, I already saw the film so I can give you the low-down. Continue reading →
I didn’t like superhero movies in 2012, when I went to see the first Avengers. I remember looking at my movie-buddy Rebekah Black and saying, “This is gonna suck.”
What can I say? Sometimes I’m really REALLY wrong.
We were BEYOND pumped about this new treat from Joss Whedon but also a little scared. Would it compare to the first? Would it suck so bad that we’d stop liking the Avengers altogether? What if it was so awful that even THOR lost his sex-appeal. Yeah, that’s not gonna happen but listen to the podcast to hear our thoughts.
Also MAD PROPS TO OUR SPONSORS: Chopshop Sports Garage, Kenichi Dallas, Three Squares in Frisco and Shooters in Dallas. Click the links to find out where you can find those guys. Please support them because they’re awesome local businesses AND because they supported us…which is wonderful!
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?
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.
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.
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 →
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 →
