This morning on the TODAY show, I preview some movie and tv shows that some of you might be interested in watching this August. Think of it as an August Preview. My wife liked many of what’s on this list, specially Fun Mom Dinner. I once again enjoy the new format they’re using when doing these monthly or weekend segments – sofa seats and a 200 inch TV screen! Feels like you’re hanging with friends in living room watching movies. Below is a transcript of what I said on the show…
Thank you for listening to episode 36 of the Highly Relevant podcast.

This week’s movie slate is not a Hollywood moviegoer’s dream. There is only one tentpole movie release, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and the rest are indie fare that lack buzz and excitement. The exploration of the human spirit is the common theme among our limited releases and though that’s not exciting, it is interesting. GOTG 2 is as much fun as you’ll have at the movies this summer, but Richard Gere’s family thriller The Dinner, does capture a feeling of Roman Polanski’s Carnage. Some star power also helps the indie films with stars such as Naomi Watts and Liev Schrieber leading their respective films. See what interests you and let us know. Enjoy the trailers and listen to our podcastfor our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more!Read More

It is a very feeble week for movies. There are only five films releasing this week. That is a head-scratcher and perhaps one of the few times that five films come out in a single week. Nevertheless, Scarlett Johansson’s Ghost in the Shell is the biggest release this weekend. It has the star power, the budget and the distribution release. It comes with some controversy though (whitewashing is mentioned), but it does look fun!

It’s the middle of March and so far, 2017 has offered some terrific fare such as Get Out and Logan. But this week, the quality isn’t as robust as previous weeks. The stellar films to see this week are The Belko Experiment, BlueBeard and Betting Zero. One has a very thrilling ride of a concept that includes Bogotá, Colombia, the other, a Korean thriller that looks fascinating, and the last, a superlative work on investigative journalism that is sure to gouge the eyes of Herbalife.

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!
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.
