DOCTOR STRANGE Breathes Life Into the Marvel Cinematic Universe

DOCTOR STRANGE is a massive, much-needed jolt of fresh fun into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I find it ironic this CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON meets INCEPTION superhero flick, one I was not anticipating in the least, is my favorite entry in the MCU since 2014’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. With that said, let’s be clear: Marvel has never made a bad movie. There have been 12 entries, including IRON MAN (2008), which launched the MCU, and even the weakest entries (I’m

Qui Gon Jinn P.I. – Liam Neeson Sleuths It Up in Tombstones

I would have never thought in a million years A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES would be such a white-knuckled and well-acted movie. When Liam Neeson is constantly playing Your Worst Nightmare, it’s easy to dismiss this as another cha-ching in the former Jedi’s pocketbook. That’s probably due to the trailer, which isn’t very good, but the movie gets a big fat B+ from me and you can hear my review on the KVNU For the People Movie show by clicking

KVNU Movie Show: Loads of Apes and a Sex Tape!

For the second straight weekend DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES ruled the box office, bringing its two week haul to a respectable $139 million and change. It might be one of the best-reviewed movies of the summer, but I think it could bumped with LUCY, HERCULES (sadly) and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY all about to  hit multiplexes across the country. What didn’t rule the box office? The sporadically funny SEX TAPE, starring Jason Segal and Cameron Diaz. It

KVNU Movie Show: “Hey, Optimus, Say Hi to your Mother for Me”

If you missed the KVNU For the People Movie Show on Friday, we talked about TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION and my non-hatred of Michael Bay’s filmography. It’s too easy to crap on Michael Bay and I won’t hop on that bandwagon. Also, he likes to blow shit up and I like watching shit blow up, so, you know, we complete each other. I also generally enjoy Mark Wahlberg, especially when he (or Andy Sandberg) talks to animals. Click here to

KVNU For The People Movie Show: 22 JUMP STREET

I wanted oh-so-badly to like 22 JUMP STREET, but despite the greatness of Lord and Miller, as well as all the wink-wink jokes of how terrible sequels generally turn out, I found this unfunny and kinda boring. GASP! I know. I know. At any rate, lend your ear to this lovely podcast of the KVNU For The People Movie Show where we talk about the not-so-funny 22 JUMP STREET.

KVNU For The People Movie Show: Tom Cruise vs John Green

What a great weekend for movies! Fans of the John Green young adult novel – THE FAULT IN OUR STARS – can unleash the sniffles and tears in the darkness of the theater, or fans of Tom Cruise can hit up EDGE OF TOMORROW and wonder why in the flying eff a movie with such terrible trailers and horrible marketing can be so ever-lovin’ fantastic. We talked about both of these gems and you can relive the wonder that is
