Another month, another Behind the Mikes. We discussed the new Hunger Games, Secret in Their Eyes, and more (we ramble a lot).

Got a new review in the Star this week, and it's a big one! The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

I made it to another Behind the Mikes podcast, this time discussing Goosebumps and Crimson Peak (and Kansas City's endless underground tunnel system, for some reason). I also guested on KCUR's Central Standard, talking about my favorite podcasts (how appropriate).

The greatest special effect of 2015: Making Hugh Jackman look hideous in Pan

Tried something new this week - Thanks to Media Mikes for letting me sit in on their Behind the Mikes podcast, where I reviewed The Martian and Sicario

The world ends with...a love triangle(?) in Z for Zachariah

Remember the '70s? Even if you don't, you should watch Being Evel

Take the kids to see Shaun the Sheep Movie.

A little eye candy in the Star this week: Magic Mike XXL

Another on-demand title to finish off May: Every Secret Thing

This one is a little more serious: The James Randi doc An Honest Liar

Hell yeah, San Andreas!

The Official WTF?! Movie of 2015, and you can watch it online: Maggie

I was invited to join another Central Standard panel on KCUR. This time, Game of Thrones was the topic, and we could have talked for hours.

In the Star this week: Slow West

My first video-on-demand review (via Hoopla Digital): Welcome to Me

This week's review: Clouds of Sils Maria

Check out this week's reviews: The Water Diviner in the Star & The Wrecking Crew.

My latest review for the Star, Monkey Kingdom, is online.

I've posted a review of the new independent film Cut Bank.

I got to participate in a great panel discussion of Selma on KCUR. It wasn't just a review, either - it was also a chance to talk about history and its representation in Hollywood, along with many other topics.

​​And now, for some new content! My review of A Most Violent Year is in the Kansas City Star this week.
