Reitman returned to St. Louis earlier this month for the 27th Annual Whitaker […]

It’s hard to imagine a time where negative news could come out about a candidate, and completely derail their campaign. Yet that is exactly what happened in 1988, when Senator Gary Hart was the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination until news of his affair. All it took was three weeks for his bid to completely […]

Review: LOGAN Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen

Posted: March 3, 2017 at 7:32 am   /   Movie Reviews

This is what we wanted, isn’t it? A no-holds-barred, unfiltered look into the world of the X-Men, as opposed to the toned-down PG-13 version offered by the previous films in the series? A chance to see Wolverine shine in his full, unadulterated glory? Hell yes. What wouldn’t have been possible were it not for the […]

Review: ‘Logan’ Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen

Posted: February 18, 2017 at 4:19 am   /   Movie Reviews

Finally. After seventeen years and eight X-Men films (nine, if you include Deadpool), the fans of the franchise finally get the Wolverine film they deserve – an R-rated, no holds barred, action-packed bloodbath of a film. This is James Mangold’s second straight Wolverine film, and in my opinion, the best addition to the franchise to […]

126: ‘Pan’ Starring Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund

Posted: October 14, 2015 at 1:54 pm   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

Pan /pan/: verb 1. (informal) To criticize (someone or something) severely. I don’t care if your movie is about a flying boy. When you name your movie Pan you’re pretty much inviting derision. When you make a crappy movie about a flying boy…well, even more so. Bad effects, bad screenplay, bad acting…it’s veritable cornucopia of […]

85: ‘CHAPPiE’ Starring Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver

Posted: March 12, 2015 at 10:54 am   /   Film, Local, Reel Spoilers

This week Neill Blomkamp returns with RoboCopy… Ummm… I mean Chappie. A movie that our legal department requires us to inform you resembles RoboCop in no way whatsoever (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). So please ignore all of the cops who are robots, and the Peter Weller sound-alike voice work, and that giant evil robot which […]
