Talking About September Movies on GOOD MORNING TEXAS

I was on Good Morning Texas today, telling everyone what movies they should see in the following weeks. I always love talking to Jane McGarry and Alanna Sarabia and if you listen carefully, you’ll hear me cluck like a chicken at them for freaking out over The Nun. I also promised to post the trailer for The Nun that YouTube pulled for being TOO SCARY. Click HERE to watch that but BE WARNED! You should probably avoid it if you have a weak heart…or bladder.

Reviewing “Ant-Man & the Wasp” & Chatting About July Movies on GOOD MORNING TEXAS

I joined Alanna Sarabia on Good Morning Texas today to talk about all the big films that are opening soon. I also gave her my review of Ant-Man and the Wasp and told her about some FREE MOVIE PASSES that I’m giving away. You can find those HERE, then click HERE to watch the segment.

Whitney Houston

Reviewing “Whitney” on GOOD MORNING TEXAS

I was on Good Morning Texas today, bright and early to discuss the new Whitney Houston documentary, Whitney. I’ve been telling everyone that, if they saw only ONE documentary this year, it needed to be Won’t You Be My Neighbor, about Fred Rogers. Well, I’m changing my tune. Whitney is like Breaking Bad, Sid & Nancy and A Star is Born, all rolled into one. It also gives you a chance to fall in love with Whitney Houston all over again, and to watch her sing when she was just getting started.

Whitney is rated R and opens July 6th.

Well, you wouldn’t believe how many people have asked me about that since, so I decided to put all the links in one place to make it easier for everyone. Continue reading →

FIFTY SHADES FREED

MOVIE REVIEW: “Fifty Shades Freed” (Thank GOD, the End is NIGH!)

A friend asked me, just yesterday, “UGGGGH, are they really still making those Fifty Shades of Grey movies?”
Yes, and UGH indeed.
See, I’ve never been been a fan of these damn things. I didn’t even finish the first book because I thought it was boring and that the sex-scenes were just slightly more titillating than men’s underwear mannequins at Macy’s. The films are a bit more fun because we have the dewy, sweet-faced Dakota Johnson as our Anastasia, but we also have the cut-directly-from-cardboard Jamie Dornan, as our Christian Grey. Sure, he has a beautiful body but the lack of charisma is daunting.
The vapid Fifty Shades story-line might have been saved if these two were ever capable of generating any real heat. No one remembers exactly what Nine and a Half Weeks was about, but certain scenes will live forever just because they were so HOT (Yes, please leave your hat on!). Dornan and Johnson’s love-scenes however, seem to cause a sex-vacuum, and often feel like you’re watching two strangers, who don’t even like each other, try to get it on. Now that I think about it, that’s exactly what we’re watching. Sure, there are stories and satellite characters and actual arcs built into this tome, but does any of it matter if the sex isn’t sexy?
These are the questions I’ve asked myself repeatedly while sitting through each of these movies. That’s one of the only downfalls of being a Film Critic (aside from all that money you aren’t making): Sometimes you have to see movies that you DON’T want to see.
Which brings me to the main point of my Fifty Shades Freed review.
I feel pretty certain that those of you who WANT to see this movie WILL see it, regardless of what I say. I sat through all 105 (thankfully brief) minutes though, so you’re getting my review anyhow. Continue reading →

Discussing BAYWATCH and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 on “Good Morning Texas”

The biggest trick to radio or television is to make it seem like you’re having so much fun that no one notices all the work that’s involved. It isn’t always easy, but SOME DAYS are so much fun that they don’t feel like work at all. That’s how it was this morning, when I reviewed Baywatch and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales for Good Morning Texas. I have Dawn Hensley (who worked the camera) and Paige McCoy Smith (who really IS that nice) to thank for that. I should also thank the Sandbar Cantina and Grill for mixing those fantastic cocktails for us! We only had one after the segment, but we were laughing like we’d been drinking them all morning! Click HERE to watch the segment, then find links to buy movie tickets below. Also, keep checking the website because some fabulous movies are opening in June and you KNOW I’ll have FREE PASSES!
