The Movie Man Offers to Babysit

As the parent of a toddler, it’s hard to get someone responsible to watch her while her mom and I go see a feature film.  To the rescue comes The Movie Man, the most trusted name in movie critics/child care.  Also: reviews of Cars 3, Rough Night, and 47 Meters Down.


The Movie Man’s Painful Reentry

The Movie Man called in to review the new Wonder Woman and Captain Underpants movies and to recap his recent European vacation that featured a painful re-entry into the United States.

The Movie Man’s Streaming Issues

The Movie Man called in to share his thoughts on “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2″ as well as “The Handmaid’s Tale” on Hulu as part of his “Five Star DVR” segment, even though Hulu is streaming.  The Movie Man must have an issue with his streaming.


Coming Soon: A tour of the Movie Man’s closets

The Movie Man called in with his thoughts on “The Fate of the Furious” and “Spark: A Space Tail.”  Also, after Twitter went crazy about our tour of The Movie Man’s freezer and pantry, next week we’ll explore his closets and clean out his car.  Don’t miss it!


A tour of The Movie Man’s freezer and pantry

The Movie Man rejoined us after taking a few weeks off to share his thoughts on the C.H.I.P.S. movie (he prefers the potato kind of chip, which led to a chip discussion and a tour through his pantry), Power Rangers, and Life.  Plus:  selecting the right fake meat and going inside The Movie Man’s freezer.

The Movie Man’s Oscar Picks

The Movie Man joined us to give his Oscar Picks for 2017 (he’s correctly picked all the winners in the major categories for the last 14 years), and give us his thoughts on this week’s new releases.  Plus:  Fitbits, deep dish pizza, and lamenting the loss of the chicken shell taco.

The Movie Man Re-Emerges

After being curled up in a fetal position for about a month and a half, The Movie Man finally put his pants on and went to see some films.  We discussed “Fifty Shades Darker” (where he spent more time watching women watching the movie — but not in a creepy way), “The Lego Batman Movie,” and Keanu Reeves in “John Wick: Chapter Two.”  Plus: another segment of “Five Star DVR” and the assertion that nothing in this segment should be interpreted as innuendo.

The Movie Man and the Devil’s Flower

While many people are struggling to come to terms with the results of the election (on both sides of the aisle), one happy result in California is the legalization of the Devil’s Flower, which makes The Movie Man a very happy The Movie Man.   We also discussed this weekend’s new releases, including “Arrival” and “Shut In.”

The Movie Man reviews “Girl on a Train”

The Movie Man called in with his thoughts on “Girl on a Train” as well as the new HBO series “Westworld” The Movie Man enjoys “Westworld,” but Mrs. Movie Lady does not. Listen as we come up with a compromise that might just save all relationships.
