I had several snarky thoughts when I first saw the trailer for The Greatest Showman.
-I think I preferred this movie when it was called Moulin Rouge.
-Isn’t Hugh Jackman a little old to be playing Michelle Williams’ husband?
-Really??? Another slow-motion shot of a hot-chick dangling from the ceiling???
You get the point.
See, I have to sit through a ton of movies and I’m afraid that, after a while, many of them start to look the same.
I even warned my daughters to “keep your expectations low” when we sat down to watch The Greatest Showman, and then prepared myself to be sufficiently underwhelmed.
Man…was I wrong. Continue reading →
Memorial Day Weekend seems like the perfect time to take your family to the movies, but picking a flick that’s worth the money AND appropriate for your whole crew can be tricky. That’s especially true in regards to this weekend’s new releases, Baywatch and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. While one of these would be fine for you and most of your kids, the other will teach them interesting new terms for certain body-parts. Continue reading →
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!

If you were drowning in an ocean, would you rather have Zac Efron save you or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? Yes, I know it’s a stupid question but they’re both starring as lifeguards in the big-screen version of Baywatch, so answer it anyway. Sure, Zac is all gorgeous and talented but I’m not sure he could drag my screaming, thrashing body out of the water. The Rock, on the other hand, would throw me over his shoulder and glide to shore without even a splash. You know he’d have that patented Concerned-Dwayne-Johnson scowl on his face the whole time, too. Hmmm, while we’re pondering this very important question, why don’t you go ahead and grab passes to see the new Baywatch? Continue reading →
Mike and Dave (Adam Devine & Zac Efron) are going to a wedding in Hawaii but they need dates. They place an online ad that goes viral and end up with dates who party even harder than they do. It doesn’t sound like much of a premise, but throw in the fact that their dates are played by real-life buddies Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick, and I AM THERE.
Even better, I have passes to Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates so we get to see it FOR FREE! Click HERE to grab those, then watch the trailer below. Man, I want to be real-life-buddies with those chicks, too!
This week on the Podcast, I review The 5th Wave, Dirty Grandpa and Son of Saul. I’ll also talk about the #OscarSoWhite controversy, since Straight Outta Compton is now available on DVD. I’ll also answer some emailed questions about The Martian, because people are still asking me if it’s appropriate for kids. It really all depends on your kid…and just how much you swear around them. I’d also like to share this article with Scott from Dallas, who asked if I knew how solid the science behind The Martian is. Scott, bless your little heart for assuming I’m smart enough to answer that question. Instead, here’s an interview with Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, because HE would know! http://www.cbsnews.com/news/neil-degrasse-tyson-science-behind-the-martian/
I can’t say that I loved the first Neighbors movie. In fact, you can click HERE to listen to my review from KRLD, where I gave it a B-. I thought it was funny, though raunchy as Hell, and I certainly never thought they’d find an excuse to make a Neighbors 2. Well, they have and I’ll be damned if it doesn’t look even funnier than the first one. Take a look at the trailer below and remember that Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising will be in theaters May 20th. I promise to try my hardest to get free passes to this one.
