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

Trailer Tuesday: The Repentance Edition

Well, this is akwaaaaaaard. Here I went on and on about never missing a Trailer Tuesday and now I’ve missed (GULP!) two! Things have been super slow at Andy at The Movies.com, but I promise it’s only because I’ve been training for a marathon, which, I’m happy as hell to say, is now over. It was my fourth marathon and probably the hardest. Every single muscle below my junk hurts in the most horrendous way. But you didn’t come to

Movie Review: The Other Guys (A-)

From Old School to Elf to Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and even Land of the Lost (I think I might be one of a handful who actually enjoyed this movie), Will Ferrell has proven to be one of the funniest actors of the last decade. Mark Walhberg is in the same boat talent-wise. He’s no Oscar winner (literally), but he’s capable and solid, especially in The Departed, Three Kings and Boogie Nights. You’d think with these two

Trailer Tuesday: The Other Guys

I said on the radio last Friday this upcoming summer movie slate is going to suck the sweat of a dead man’s balls and I’m not budging from that stance. Still, there are some interesting specks of hope dotting the cinematic landscape from May to August. One of those is The Other Guys, directed and co-written by Adam McKay (the dude behind Anchorman, Talladega Nights and Step Brothers), and stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne “Don’t Call

Movie Review: The Lovely Bones

I read Alice Sebold’s novel The Lovely Bones in 2002 shortly after a close friend’s daughter died in a summer boating accident. We were both young parents back then – he with three young girls, and me with a four year-old daughter. My heart ached for him because, as a father, I could totally fathom the sheer and seemingly never-ending hurt flowing through his soul. Unexpected death is always a tragedy, but it seems the death of a child is

Amy Adams to Join Wahlberg and Bale for Boxer Pic

The lovely and wonderfully bubbly Amy Adams is set to star alongside Christian “It’s F***ing Distracting” Bale and Mark “Say Hi to Your Mother For Me” Wahlberg in David O. Russell’s (“Three Kings”) soon-to-film boxer pic, “The Fighter.” According to Variety, Adams would play the love interest of Wahlberg, a “gritty” Massachusetts bartender. Bale would play Wahlberg’s half-brother and boxing trainer. The article also mentions Melissa Leo (“Frozen River”) as also being cast in the film. I don’t know about
