As longtime readers know, I’m a film critic for the SiriusXM Patriot Channel’s terrific morning show, “The Mike Church Show,” and you can hear my movie reviews on the show, every Friday Morning between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. Eastern. You can also hear my movie reviews and political commentary on “The James Show,” on New Orleans’ WRNO 99.5 FM on Saturday Nights from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m. Central. And I’m a member of the Detroit Film Critics Society. Every year, we have a day when we sit through movie after movie after movie, so that we can vote, as every city’s mainstream media film critics do, on the movies of the year, best actor, etc. As I tell you each year after these, I know it sounds fun–and pathetic to whine about it–but we waste the day away, sitting through a whole lot of bad movies for those one or two gems. (Plus, we get a ton of movies in the mail, which we’re expected to watch, then cut up and throw out (or save and never ever lend out to anyone, lest we be banned from screening lists). I’ve cut up and thrown out a heck of a lot, this year.) Today the screenings began at 8:00 a.m. and went through 9:00 p.m. Six movies, which is a lot, too much.
Below are the movies we saw today. There is one that is a FOUR REAGAN movie and among my top five for this year. Can you guess from the trailers which ones I liked and which I didn’t like? I can’t say, but you, my readers, are very good at guessing the answers to that question. Stay tuned for my reviews when the movies debut, beginning this Friday.
Which of these movies did I like? . . .
