155: ‘Dirty Grandpa’ Starring Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Aubrey Plaza, Julianne Hough

Posted: January 29, 2016 at 1:51 pm   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

It’s a painful episode as we are subjected to ‘Dirty Grandpa’ – a movie so debased that even Creepy Joe was put off by it. January’s not even over and we have a serious contender for worst picture of the year. It’s crass, offensive and aggressively unfunny. So if you enjoy it when we hate […]

Posted: January 28, 2016 at 10:48 am   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

The Revenant still tops at the box office. Star Wars is closing in on a billion dollars domestic, but it will probably never be the world champ. We’ll tell you why, plus Tom will teach Joe what a cough is, something makes Kevin cringe audibly, and we ruin The 5th Wave for you because it […]

Lasse Hallström and Nicholas Sparks are back together again after their first outing together, Dear John just three years ago. All the things you’ve come to expect from a Nicholas Sparks film are there. The beautiful North Carolina set pieces, the tragic back stories, and forced drama all make appearances. That isn’t to say there aren’t […]

How Did ‘Rock of Ages’ and ‘That’s My Boy’ Do Against Last Week’s Top Films At The Box Office?

Posted: June 17, 2012 at 1:22 pm   /   Local, Movie News

This week’s two big releases had enough star power to propel them to the top of the box office, but did the word of mouth on previous weeks releases keep them from making money? Rock of Ages had the draw of Tom Cruise, “classic” 80’s music, and a built in audience from the stage show. […]

Movie Review: ‘Rock of Ages’ Starring Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta

Posted: June 15, 2012 at 6:29 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Rock of Ages is based on the jukebox musical of the same name, which opened on Broadway in 2009. With an A-list cast, and built-in audience of both fans of the show and music from the 80s, it is sure to open strong. But for those who aren’t normally inclined to watching musicals, there isn’t […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Footloose (2011)

Posted: October 14, 2011 at 10:34 pm   /   Another Take From Zac, Local, Movie Reviews

Footloose is a silly, stereotypical, and safe love story that is elevated by director Craig Brewer who makes it fun with a heart that will undoubtedly entertain all that are interested. Full disclosure, I have never seen the original Footloose.  My closest connection to it is the “angry dancing” sequence when parodied in Flight of […]

Movie Review: ‘Footloose’ Dances to Same Beats from 1984

Posted: October 14, 2011 at 10:53 am   /   Featured, Film, Local, Movie Reviews

As a woman, I’m inclined to bestow immediate praise on the new version of Footloose. I mean, the only way this movie could appeal to my nostalgic ladyparts even more would be to randomly include neon Lisa Frank art and unicorns. And then that realization kind of scared me, so I had a frank talk […]
