VM2 He Said, She Said Movie Review: Veronica Mars

Joseph and Palmer were supporters of the Veronica Mars movie from its KickStarter’s early beginnings. Now that the movie has come out, Joseph and Palmer give their reviews of the feature length reunion of one of the first shows they watched together as a married couple.

Joseph:

In its first weekend in around 265 AMC theaters across the country, the Veronica Mars movie made right around $2 million, a third of its $6 million budget and more than a third of the approximately $5.7 million the film raised on KickStarter. There is buzz about a sequel. Owen Gleiberman’s take on the success of the Veronica Mars movie project and what it may or may not mean for the future of film financing is well worth a read. Many are writing about what it reveals about super fans driving entertainment or other questions about big dreams versus hometown responsibilities.

Film Review – “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”

Captain America The Winter Soldier Trailer and Plot 500X368 Film Review   Captain America: The Winter Soldier

When Marvel Studios unleashed “Captain America: The First Avenger” three years ago, the reaction was generally positive. Granted, it was about as cookie-cutter of an origin story as you could put to film, but the performances from a solid cast made the whole thing come off as a worthwhile production.

Still, speaking for myself, the first installment of the famed World War II hero came off as a chore to sit through. We all knew the film was just a prelude to “The Avengers,” which would roll into theaters the following summer. Marvel knew they had to introduce Cap to audiences before brining him onto the team.

Clayton’s Top 25 Films of 2013

2013 Top Movies Claytons Top 25 Films of 2013

I know, I know. I’m super late to the 2013 movie rankings party. I’d like to think you all will believe it’s because I’m just that thorough. Honestly, I think the truth is that I just have a fear of commitment.

I undoubtedly take these rankings more seriously than anyone in my position should but ranking things, especially movies, is my jam. And I’ll say the same thing I say every year that NO ONE SEEMS TO READ.. .just because something is ranked 23rd doesn’t mean that I didn’t think highly of it. I saw nearly 50 movies in 2013 and I primarily only see movies that are well reviewed or come recommended from people I trust. Last year I saw 70 something way too many movies and did a top 50 post, which I actually had a tough time narrowing down. This year I’ve given up on my dream to rank that high as most people seemed to think that was unnecessary or something…

So, because I’m a man of the people, I present to you my top 25 films of 2013. Read more

Movie Review: The Lego Movie

the lego movie 2014 1024x640 Movie Review: The Lego Movie

Alright guys, I’m in the final process of finalizing my rankings for 2013 movies. But, before I share those, I wanted to join the rest of civilization in recommending seeing The Lego Movie.

I had an early finish to the work day yesterday and had only been to the theater once or twice so far this year so I decided to check out the much heralded (96% on Rotten Tomatoes) The Lego Movie. I texted a couple friends as I arrived that I hoped Chris Hansen from Dateline didn’t come plop down in the seat next to me as I was seeing a children’s movie by myself. My writing this post, combined with the common knowledge that I’m not fast enough to outrun Chris Hansen, should be proof enough that I left unscathed.

So, without further adieu, here’s what I liked and didn’t like. We’ll start with what I didn’t. Read more

The Sun Sets (Again) on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show Tenure

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Entertainment, Featured, Movies, Television | Leave a comment

tonight show jay leno The Sun Sets (Again) on Jay Lenos Tonight Show Tenure

Confession: My late night TV viewing has never placed The Tonight Show with Jay Leno at the top. Growing up, my parents were David Letterman fans so I was a Late Show with David Letterman fan. As I began to stay up late until 10:30, I’d watch my favorite TV, movie, and music stars with Letterman.

As I grew up and became a bigger fan of TV history, I’d watch shows chronicling the life and career of Johnny Carson. I still vaguely remember Carson’s final show, but I was too young to realize the Leno/Letterman battle that occurred until HBO made a movie about it later on. To me, Carson was always the “last great unifying American late night TV host” in TV history. And while I enjoyed watching clips from that history, it was never my own.

Despite DGA win, “Gravity” Will Not Win Best Picture. Here’s Why.

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Awards Addict, Entertainment, Featured, Movies | Leave a comment

DGA1 Despite DGA win, “Gravity” Will Not Win Best Picture. Here’s Why.

Director Alfonso Cuaron captured top honors from the Directors Guild of America Saturday evening. Largely seen as the top indicator of what film will win Best Picture, the DGA has a proven track record of recognizing the cream of the crop. This year was no exception.

This should position “Gravity” as the front-runner for Best Picture, right? Normally, it would. Even last year, without Ben Affleck capturing a Best Director nomination, his DGA win sealed the deal for “Argo” to win Best Picture on Oscar Night. Why would this year prove any different?
