  • Rex Sikes Movie Beat chats with actor Clint Howard

    in Film

    Clint Howard, actor, has a career spanning over fifty years,and over two hundred film and TV shows.  He has spent his entire life entertaining us in a variety of interesting and unique roles. From childhood roles in The Andy Griffith Show and Star Trek to of course, the hit TV Show Gentle Ben, Clint was a well recognized personality by the time he was ten.Making the transition from juvenile to adult actor was no problem for Clint. Cult classic Rock N Roll High School and horror genre Evilspeak showed as an adult he could be versatile and affective. Whether Clint works in comedy classics like Waterboy, the Austin Powers film series or a hilarious episode of Seinfeld, he comfortably slides into dramatic roles such as Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon and Alabama Moon. Recently, Clint can be seen in the campy, B Horror title, Bloodrayne Third Reich and Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem. He's also put on the producing hat, teaming with long time colleague Gavin Grazer on an indie comedy. Born and raised in Burbank, California, Clint has always balanced his professional career with a 'hometown' oriented life. He continues to live with his wife Melanie in Burbank and stay active in the community. Stay tuned to Rex Sikes Movie Beat for other great archived interviews, cast and crew listings, events, festivals, premieres, and more at rexsikes.com

    Joanna Langfield's Movie Minute Reviews of Keanu and Mother's Day.

    in Entertainment

    Keanu


    Friends hatch a plot to retrieve a stolen kitten by posing as drug dealers for a street gang.


    THE BUZZ: Who doesn't love watching a cat video on the internet? But stretching out the idea into a 100-minute comedy seems like a risky prospect no matter who you are. 


    Mother's Day


    Three generations come together in the week leading up to Mother's Day.


    THE BUZZ: Garry Marshall is back with another ensemble holiday movie. It's a subgenre that tends to alienate everyone but its core audience though this particular one, which features a nearly all white cast and Julia Roberts in a memorable wig, will probably become a perennial at-home favorite.

    Joanna Langfield's Movie Minute Review of The Boss.

    in Entertainment

    The Boss


    A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.


    There’s no question McCarthy is one of the best comic actors around. Her timing is impeccable, her charm a fascinating counter to her signature I’ll-do-anything gumption. And yes, I, like so many others, do get a kick out of the fact that this loveable force of nature doesn’t look like the stereotypical movie star. When Melissa is great (Bridesmaids, Spy), she’s amazing. But when the material around her doesn’t match her talent, watch out. Sadly, that’s the case with The Boss.

    Black Geek Movie Talk: Deadpool

    in Movies

    This week we review the first comic book movie of the year, "Deadpool" starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin and Gina Carano, directed by Tim Miller. It's a story about an unconventional, comic book "hero". We'll see if Marvel can keep their winning streak going, or if this will be their first abysmal failure.  For those of us not familiar with the comic, here's the synopisis from IMDB:


    A former Special Forces operative turned mercenary is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopting the alter ego Deadpool.

    Black Geek Movie Talk: Regression

    in Movies

    This week we review "Regression" starring Ethan Hawke, Emma Watson, and David Thewlis.  Within the context of 80's hysteria over satanic cults, a detective (Hawke) and psychiatrist (Thewlis) investigate the rape of a young woman (Watson) in the Midwest.   "Regression" was directed by Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar whose 2001 flick "The Others" was probably underrated by most critics and movie-goers.  Amenábar is also responsible for "Abre Los Ojos", the trippy, existential screenplay Cameron Crowe adapted into "Vanilla Sky".  Tune in today at 1:30 PM PST to find out if this is a must-see or must-skip.

    Black Geek Movie Talk: Batman v Superman

    in Movies

    Tune in today at 1:30 PM PST as our special round table of Blerds  ?e?v?i?s?c?e?r?a?t?e?s?reviews Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" starring Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, and of course, Ben "Remember Me from Daredevil and Gigli?" Affleck.  "Batman v Superman", written by David S. Goyer (Dark City, Blade, Batman Begins, Man of Steel) and Oscar-winner Chris Terrio (Argo) takes place about two years after the Man of Steel's epic battle with Zod.  Metropolis has recovered somewhat - insert memorials and giant statues - but a new battle looms just over the horizon thanks to one thoroughly nutty Lex Luthor (Eisenberg).  Loosely based on the widely popular Dark Knight Returns comic book series, the film also introduces us to Wonder Woman, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and The Flash (Ezra Miller), neatly setting up DC's inevitable Justice League v?o?m?i?t?o?r?i?u?m? trilogy.
