Movie Review: ‘Lucy’ Starring Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman

Posted: July 25, 2014 at 6:40 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Don’t be fooled by the trailer for Lucy, the latest film from director Luc Besson. It looks like a sci­fi, action thriller; yet what it really is, is a mean-­spirited, unexciting train wreck. Scarlett Johansson stars as Lucy. One of my big problems with the film is that we are introduced to Lucy at the […]

Posted: April 8, 2014 at 7:44 am   /   Film, Local, Reel Spoilers

This week on the show we took a break from attending Wizard World long enough to discuss (fittingly) Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We were tired but we, um…soldiered on. There’s no Blind Man’s Synopsis this week since we all saw the movie. (It’s funny how that happens with comic book films, innit?) But we […]
