We start the show this week with my sit-down chat with John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, and Michael Lomenda, the cast of Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys. Then, it's a rip-roaring ride as Brian finally gets around to seeing A Million Ways to Die in the West -- and wonders where all the jokes went.
Summer movie season is here, our favorite time of the year! For this week's show, we fly Sean-less, but Brian and I still have lots to chat about, including Jon Favreau's return to his indie writing/directing roots with the cooking dramady, Chef.
To be perfectly blunt about it, big studio blockbuster releases typically don't fail as spectacularly as The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
It feels at times like two separate movies awkwardly scotch-taped together, which has me a bit worried about Sony's big mega-franchise plans. But as far as this entry goes, despite its flaws, I left the theater feeling satisfied. Not amazed, but satisfied.
At just nine years old, Jorge Vega plays a character, also known as Jorge, in the film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Jorge has already conquered all three mediums -- stage, television and film.
I am really pleased with how this series of Marvel's Spider-Man franchise is developing. I am a devoted fan of the Spider-Man trilogy that captured the hearts of the of comic book fans in the early 2000s and I love the interpretation of the comics done by Director Sam Raimi.
As 2012 drew to a close, people were talking (as usual) about the trends of the year's films and TV shows. The word "reboot" was oft mentioned -- wrongly, most of the time.

Though I have been working abroad for more than twenty years, I am renewed on every trip and never eager to leave.
Our arrival in Toussaint Louverture Airport in Port-au-Prince was a happy moment for me. Showing off Haiti to my sons begins.
With many Washingtonians headed to the movies to cool off from this summer's oppressive heat, I thought I would share some movie recommendations that provide a wide variety of valuable leadership lessons and approaches.
I have every confidence in the The Avengers' ability to save the world. But working a brunch service? I'm not holding my breath.
Since opening on July 3, The Amazing Spider-Man has set a few box office records. It also set a few new records in relation to the amount of lingeri...
Sony has decided to punch the reboot button for what is actually the fourth installment of the franchise (but should we start counting from one again?).
After three films about Spider-Man guided by Sam Raimi, Webb takes over and takes off. The director of (500) Days of Summer uses all the visual and digital tools at his disposal, just as Raimi did -- except the tools are slicker, glossier, more digitally seamless than those long ago days of 2002.
Why would Sony, which owns the rights to the Spider-Man character, feel that it was a good time to reboot the series with The Amazing Spider-Man? As you probably guessed, it has something to do with money.
