Host Betty Jo Tucker reviews Ricki and the Flash, starring Meryl Streep. Plus, noted film critic Mack Bates drops by the show to talk about Streep’s illustrious acting career. Considered by many to be the greatest contemporary film actress, Streep has been honored with three Oscars and nineteen Academy Award nominations. She earned those Oscars for The Iron Lady, Sophie’s Choice and Kramer vs. Kramer. But some of her most popular performances can be seen in such lighter fare as The Devil Wears Prada ,It’s Complicated and Mamma Mia! She displays her considerable vocal talent as a rock-and-roll singer in Ricki and the Flash, her latest movie. Known for being a perfectionist in preparing for her roles, Streep also boasts the ability to master any accent. Drama, comedy, musicals – all have been conquered by this acclaimed actress. Bates, a frequent guest on Movie Addict Headquarters, has written freelance articles for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and serves as a staff blogger for Milwaukee Magazine’s official film blog. He also received a local Emmy for his work on The Robert and Rosie Show.
Host Betty Jo Tucker reviews Danny Collins and Manglehorn, two recent movies starring Oscar-winner Al Pacino. Plus, noted film critics James Colt Harrison and Diana Saenger drop by to talk about their favorite Pacino movies and performances. Considered by many to be one of the greatest actors in all of film history, Pacino began his movie career in Me, Natalie, a 1969 motion picture starring Patty Duke, Elsa Lancaster and James Farentino. He now boasts over 50 acting credits on IMDb. His awards include a Best Actor Academy Award for Scent of a Woman and additional Oscar nominations for Dog Day Afternoon, Glengarry Glen Ross, Dick Tracy, The Godfather, Serpico, And Justice For All and Godfather: Part II.
2015 has been a very good year for Pacino. His impressive performances in Manglehorn and Danny Collins are winning rave reviews. He nails both characters and makes viewers care what happens to them despite the many mistakes they’ve made in the past. Manglehorn’s destructive obsession and Danny Collins’ relentless search for redemption seem so real because of Pacino’s ability to get inside each man’s heart and soul.

Nicholas Snow welcomes critically acclaimed Writer/Director Billy Clift (of Baby Jane? fame) to discuss not only his career, but his latest film, Hush Up Sweet Charlotte, an homage to the 1964 Hush…Hush Sweet Charlotte film starring the iconic actresses Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland. The film tells of an aging, reclusive Southern belle with a horrifying hidden family secret. It tracks her descent into madness (with the help of a lost relative) as she fights to save her family’s historic plantation.
In Clift’s film, the leads are parody performances by gender-illusionist superstars Matthew Martin and Varla Jean Merman. The feature role of housekeeper Velma, originally performed by Agnes Moorhead, is played by Mink Stole, made famous by cult film director, John Waters. Other cast members include accomplished comedian/actor Jason Stuart, star of stage and screen David Millbern, rising star Jesse Pepe, Raja Gemini of RuPaul’s Drag Race, plus San Francisco drag icons Katya Smirnoff Skyy, Ethel Merman, Honey Mahogony, Heklina and more.

Master of the stage, performer for the soul, Eric “EQ” Young is known for his ability to fire up concert crowds with his high-energy passionate vocals and funky bass beats. This consummate musician has a long history of opening for, playing with, and being signed by established names in the business. Today, EQ confirms his place among the constellation of great Bay Area funk stars with the early release of 8 songs from his upcoming CD, “Just 4 You.”
Getting his hands on his first guitar at the age of 8—a gift from his grandfather, that had only three strings, Eric Young taught himself to play by ear. Imitating Sly Stone’s mixture of sound and tight arrangements on that misfit instrument ended up opening a life path to world stages.
Other radio stars of the period had a strong influence on his style, including Larry Graham, leading Young to switch to learning bass and studying music composition. Growing up in the Northern California Bay Area gave Young easy access to live performances of Tower of Power, Sly Stone, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Whispers, The Escovedos, Santana, Pointer Sisters. Their example put pressure on the aspiring star to master his instrument and showmanship, solidifying his vision of becoming a complete entertainer. While bands he auditioned for continued to turn him down, their rejections only fueled his ambition. So deep was his desire to be a performer, only at the request—and belt—of his mother did he finish high school.
