What To See This Weekend On Demand: ‘Don Jon,’ ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’

02.3.2017 | By |

If you’re a movie buff, which I know some of you are, you should really watch this 30m show on NY1 called – Talking Pictures On Demand. I was a guest for the sixth time and it really breaks down with a fine tooth comb the new releases and movies that are currently “on demand”. I reviewed Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s comedy charmer Don Jon, the delightful romantic comedy Florence Foster Jenkins and more. Click video above to have a look!

The Complete 2017 Oscar Nominations List

01.24.2017 | By |

2016 really began presenting its best movies in August, I know, a weird month to exhibit great work, but it brought us delightful films such as Florence Foster Jenkins, Hell or High Water and Kubo and the Two Strings amongst others. All three movies have been nominated for Oscars. Damien Chazelles’s La La Land though, tied the record for most nominations in Academy history with 14 nods tying James Cameron’s Titanic and Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s classic All About Eve from 1950. These nominations also denote the diverse work of new filmmakers who introduced new faces and bold stories to a changing America. Check out the list!

The first Monday of 2017 and I got the chance to be on the same show Katie Couric co-hosted. Alas, I didn’t get a chance to see her, but awesome to know I was feet away from her.

Jack Rico’s Top 10 Movies Of 2016

12.29.2016 | By |

 

It’s hard to look back at 2016 and not think how tragic it was to lose our beloved artistic icons. But when it comes to motion pictures, there were a couple silver linings one can sanguinely lean on as bright spots. Though this was by far the year of superheroes and animated films, it was also the year where we witnessed the Golden Age of African-American storytelling. With remarkable films such as Moonlight, Hidden Figures, Fences, Birth of a Nation, Kicks, Loving, 13th and I Am Not Your Negro in theaters, the outlook for black cinema finally looks hopeful. Women and multiculturalism were also front and center on screen and behind the scenes and no film was more demonstrative of those attributes than Rogue One. Movies, in general, impact people differently and I believe the Top 10 Movies I have selected above not only reflect those qualities, but provide the standard of excellence in cinema this year.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Movie Review)

12.13.2016 | By |

The 1-4-0: #RogueOne is not a better film experience than #TheForceAwakens, but it is a solid sci-fi, action film that provides high entertainment value and some nostalgic “cameos” for old-school fans. Read More

The New ‘Spider-Man Homecoming’ Trailer Is Here!

12.9.2016 | By |

I’m glad Spider-Man is coming back to the screen with Marvel Studios behind it. It’s what every superhero fan always wanted, but there are some slight problems I can’t get passed. One, the suit. Doesn’t it look cheap to you? Two, this storyline really takes Spidey and Peter Parker to the stone age. He “is not ready to save the world yet.” You can’t wind the character that far back after giving us so many Spidey films since the last  14 years. Hopefully this is the version everyone sticks with.  Read More
