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 reviews “Sully”

After taking several weeks of fin protest of a very poor summer movie season (which he sums up in one word at the beginning of the segment), The Movie Man called in to give us his thoughts on the Clint Eastwood/Tom Hanks film “Sully,” which seems to be getting fall movies off to a promising start.

The Movie Man reviews “Sausage Party” and “Pete’s Dragon”

In an euphemism and innuendo-filled discussion, The Movie Man gave us his thoughts on Seth Rogen’s “Sausage Party” (where meat-to-bun ratio is of critical importance) along  and then did a complete 180 (which scored a very respectable 7.2 from the judges) and talked about the very kid-friendly remake of “Pete’s Dragon.”  Plus:  what’s the deal with the Olympic diving shower & hot tub cameras?


The Movie Man reviews “Suicide Squad”

After taking most of the summer off due to the lack of quality films, The Movie Man finally re-emerged to give us his thoughts on “Suicide Squad,” for which he suggests but does not necessarily recommend a little bit of pre-show enhancement.

The return of The Movie Man!

The Movie Man reviews “Captain America: Civil War”

It’s going to be 80 degrees and sunny today in Chicago, so of course we’re all going to head to a dark movie theater and check out “Captain America: Civil War.”  The Movie Man gives us his thoughts (how it’s less of a civil war and more of a civil disagreement) and encourages us to vote in his Twitter poll on whether you’re Team Iron Man, Team Captain America, or Team I Don’t Give a Bleep.
