Where to See Christmas Lights Around St. Louis (2013)
Dec 2013 11

Christmas Vacation Movie Poster High ResI believe that we all have a little Clark Griswald in us, but may not be crazy enough to decorate our homes like he did in Christmas Vacation. If that’s the case, don’t worry because there are enough holiday light displays in the St. Louis area to keep you busy until the end of the holiday season.

Here is a rundown of several of the popular light displays in the St. Louis area:

Santa’s Magical Kingdom

Better bring the eggnog if you plan on making it through this 35 acre light display. Jellystone Park in Eureka is home to this gigantic display of Christmas goodness. While in the park, you can see Santa’s flying reindeer, take a trip through Candy Cane Village, or even see the Waterfall of Lights. Don’t want to waste the gas driving? No problem, you can take an old fashioned wagon ride through the park to see the display of lights. Once you finish your journey through Santa’s Magical Kingdom, head over to Kringle’s General Store. Santa’s Magical Kingdom is open from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., Sunday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, hours are 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Admission is $20 per car or $12 for a wagon ride. Santa’s Magical Kingdom will be open until January 5.

Enter to win a pass for two!

Grudge Match PosterOscar® winner Robert De Niro (“Raging Bull,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar® nominee Sylvester Stallone (the “Rocky” films, “The Expendables”) star as old boxing rivals who come out of retirement for one final match. Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr., seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all. But they may not have to wait that long: on their first encounter in decades, their long-festering feud erupts into an unintentionally hilarious melee that instantly goes viral. The sudden social media frenzy transforms their local grudge match into a must-see HBO event. Now, if they can just survive the training, they may actually live to fight again.

Cast: Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone, Kevin Kart, Alan Arkin, Kim Basinger, Jon Bernthal

ReviewSTL Podcast Episode 9: Disney Animation Classics, in Honor of FROZEN
Dec 2013 10

*Note: The above picture is from a Disney cartoon, and not actually a picture of Steve Kelley*

Steamboat Willie Mickey MouseSeasons greetings from the ReviewSTL staff! In honor of Disney’s release of Frozen, we looked back on some of our favorite Disney animated films.

We talk about some of the classics from our childhoods like Aladdin and The Lion King, but we also go way back and talk about some of the older films that started it all, like Dumbo.

But wait, there’s more!

Steve brings out some of his useless trivia knowledge and talks about how some of our favorite classics were actually supposed to end. Cherished classics like Cinderella and The Little Mermaid were inspired by old allegories that had endings that were… well, let’s just say Disney cleaned them up a little bit. Even The Lion King had an ending that was different from what was originally envisioned.

So tune in and relive some of your favorite Disney moments. For every listener that downloads the podcasts and comments on the ReviewSTL Facebook page, Kevin will give you a shout out on the next podcast!

AMERICAN HUSTLE opens December 20! Enter to Win Passes to the St. Louis Advance Screening!
Dec 2013 09

Enter to win a pass for two!

American Hustle PosterA fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.

Cast: Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lawrence
Director: David O. Russell
