LA LA LAND Trailer Full of The Feels

Ryan Gosling (THE NICE GUYS) is a charming SOB and Emma Stone (ALOHA) is all kinds of adorable in nearly every movie the two thespians have touched over the course of their respective careers. They can tiptoe between drama and comedy with ease. Even in the dark and atmospheric 2011 noir-thriller, DRIVE, which has our hero gagging bad guys with bullets and squishing noggins in elevators (whilst bedazzled in a satin scorpion jacket, nonetheless), you can’t help but be charmed

Missed the Previous Six Trailers for THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE? Well, Here’s Number Seven!

Remember how I said I was excited for WONDER WOMAN and how DC might assuage their critically bludgeoned movie loins via the Gal Gadot blockbuster coming in June 2017? Yeah, well, I totally forgot about THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE due in theaters February 2017. With how popular Will Arnett’s (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT) Batman character was in THE LEGO MOVIE (2014) and the other voice talent cast (Michael Cera, Zach Galifinakas, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey and Jenny Slate), I have

New WONDER WOMAN Trailer Equals Hope for the DC Cinematic Universe

WONDER WOMAN, the next movie (June 2017) in the DC Comics cinematic universe, has a new trailer out today, and even though studios still refuse to plop Chris Pine’s eyebrows in the “starring” credits, I will admit wholeheartedly that I dug this trailer loads more than the San Diego Comic-Con teaser back in late July. I’m not 100 percent sure why I like this new trailer better than its predecessor, especially since there’s not that much new footage, but more

AMERICAN SNIPER Gets a Trailer and I Get Goosebumps

Bradley Cooper is one of the most talented actors working today. Period. He’s was marvelous in SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, amazing in AMERICAN HUSTLE and 100% hilarious as Rocket the Raccoon in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Now he’s teamed with Clint Eastwood to bring the story of Chris Kyle – from his autobiography, AMERICAN SNIPER – to the big screen. If you remember, Kyle died in February of 2013, shot to death at a gun range by a friend suffer from post

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

SNOWPIERCER Looks Amazing, But in Cache Valley we’ll Get Three Helpings of Michael Bay

Look, I’m not so high-minded to thumb my nose at Michael Bay movies, as is the norm among my film critic brethren. His films are low on story and high on explosions and sexiness, and I’m okay with that. They don’t pretend to be anything but loud, blockbustery fun. Still, even though I could be labeled a Michael Bay apologist, it makes me sad that his TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION will dominate the screens at the three Larry H. Miller
