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

WORLD WAR Z Low on Scares, High on Lame

Is it just me, or do we seem on the verge of zombie overload? I realize zombies are super cool nowadays and Zed is riding the wave of popularity along with superheroes and dystopian young adult fiction, but with books, video games, movies and AMC’s hugely popular series, THE WALKING DEAD, we are knee deep in zombiepalooza and I think the un-dead are about to be relocated to the fringe of coolness and their popularity is going the way of

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Movie Review (B+)

Despite my Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Zodiac, Iron Man and Tropic Thunder love for Robert Downey Jr., as well as an awkward fondness for Jude Law and his crazy hairline, the predecessor for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, 2009’s Sherlock Holmes, didn’t meet my entertainment litmus test, which means I was lukewarm in my initial viewing, fell asleep in the second and have not watched the movie since, nor do I have plans to pop in the Blu-ray anytime

Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (B+)

I might be one of only a handful of people on planet Earth who have never read one word of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series of books. Let’s just get that out of the way right now, because you need to know where my opinions are coming from. Unlike the hordes of Harry Potter fans, during the movies I don’t pick up on all the little ins and outs and various wizard secrets. People are laughing and crying and I’m

Happy Birthday Father (aka Andy)!

Happy Birthday Father! I love you so much! I just want everybody to know my dad is freaking awesome and all the other girls of the world should be very, very jealous. See that picture over there? That was taken before my dad and I went to my first Fall Out Boy concert. Of course you are going to look at me and see how cute and adorable I was. What am I saying? I still am adorable. Anyway, but

Movie Review: Bridesmaids (A-)

I should, by all accounts, have a secret celebrity crush on Jessica Biel or Brooklyn Decker – you know, a blonde or brunette knockout with a drool-worthy body and the kind of smoldering face that magnetizes you in some kind of lustful tractor beam. But guess what? I don’t. In fact, other than a slight infatuation with Olivia Wilde (but only in her Tron: Legacy get-up), my secret celebrity crush is Kristen Wiig. There. I said it and I don’t

Andy and Dan’s Star Wars Adventure

JibJab is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back by letting you cut and paste your mug into one of their silly “starring you” shenanigans. I have a fondness for JibJab dating back to the 2004 presidential election and their popular “This Land” musical take on John Kerry and George W. Bush’s fight for the White House. At any rate, I slapped myself in as Lando, Dan as Han and brought some supporting cast in to
