Paul Preston’s ongoing effort to watch a movie a day for the rest of his life. Today’s movie – “Boatboy” & “Oh My Dog!”
Pixar has done it again. When they are at they best, they find a combination of laughs, action and heart that few other animated (or live action) films can match.
“Zootopia”’s main character, Judy Hopps, a small-but-feisty country bunny trying to make it on the big city police force, is an inspiration.
Showcast Episode 140: There’s something for everyone in this week’s new movies – “London Has Fallen”, “Zootopia” and “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”, and they all get the thorough preview treatment from The Movie Guys. Then special guest actor/improviser/short filmmaker Matt Conde joins the show for more movie talk and an Oscars recap.
Odd today to think that kids would be expected to attend a movie that did not involve peril or violence or parents being offed – and love it.
This project seemed inevitable, as the breakout stars of the “Despicable Me” franchise, The Minions, get their own movie adventure. The ride at Universal Studios Hollywood isn’t called “Gru Mayhem”, for example.
It’s quite a testament to the consistent quality Pixar has brought to films for twenty years that even though they’ve had some missteps recently, the fact that they NAIL IT once again with their newest release, “Inside Out”, is no real surprise.
Ray Schillaci recommends four exceptional short films: “The Apple Tree”, “Tomgirl”, “Moving On” and “A Tricky Treat”.
Showcast Episode 74: All you can ask of anyone who visits The Admiral’s Club is that they be funny and tell great stories, and this week’s special guest Brian Shortall does both! He joins The Movie Guys to talk “Big Hero 6” and “Interstellar” and jump in on a round of “McConaughey Role or Lincoln Commercial”.
Showcast Episode 71: During their annual pledge drive, The Movie Guys go for a World Record number of movies previewed on a Showcast recorded in a studio in Burbank on a Wednesday night – SIX (“Fury”, “The Book of Life”, “Men, Women and Children”, “Birdman”, “Kill the Messenger” and “The Best of Me”). Plus, comedienne and Emmy-winning writer Laura Krafft sits in the whole show!
Showcast Episode 59: “The Purge: Anarchy”, “Sex Tape” & “Planes: Fire & Rescue” get a full once-over with special guest Charley Rivkin, director of the documentary “House of a Lifetime”. Plus, a look at a straight-to-video “Purge” film and The Movie Guys get “Transformers”‘ back in a fired-up edition of “What Did You See This Week?”.
Showcast Episode 9: The Movie Guys celebrate Ryan Reynolds week with previews of his new films “Turbo” and “R.I.P.D.”. Also, they take in a horror movie trailer they’ve always wanted to hear and preview the new action film “Red 2”. Plus, a specialist stops by to explain animation casting. Then film producer Pat Peach stops by to talk movies and movie-making.
