SPOILERPIECE THEATRE #228: FIRST REFORMED, OUTLAW KING, BJFF HIGHLIGHTS AND CREED II

TIFF Red Carpet

Had a wonderful time as always sitting in with friends Kris Jenson and Evan Crean to discuss Chris Pine’s full frontal Netflix epic, some highlights from the Boston Jewish Film Festival, a disappointing new sequel that probably just should have been called Rocky VIII and Evan’s unexpected reaction to finally seeing First Reformed. – Spoilerpiece Theatre, 11/24/2018

Had a grand old time sitting in with pals Kris Jenson and Evan Crean to talk about Rosemary’s Baby, The Stepford Wives and John Carpenter’s original 1978 Halloween before discussing my recent journey through some of its shoddy sequels and how much we all improbably enjoyed director David Gordon Green’s nifty new installment. – Spoilerpiece Theatre, 10/19/2018

Honored to join host Blake Howard on his epic discussion of Michael Mann’s magnum opus, one minute at a time. We talk about the electricity of opening night, the strangeness of two New York guys starring in a Los Angeles crime saga and the peculiarities of Pacino’s performance, including his poor phone manners and some of the all-time great gum acting.One HEAT Minute, 10/16/2018

Got my toga on sitting in with host Frank Gregory on WDEL’s Saturday HotSpot to talk about forty years of National Lampoon’s Animal House. We discuss the film’s Ivy League origins, controversial casting choices, the enduring legend of John Belushi and how fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life. Listen to MP3’s of the show after the jump.

We cover Ant-Man And The Wasp, RBG, Whitney, The King and for some reason the 1992 caper comedy Sneakers. Also discussions of stoner cinema, Neve Campbell’s new movie Skyscraper and Debra Granik’s surprisingly optimistic Leave No TraceSpoilerpiece Theatre, 07/13/2018

THE SOUR HOUR: OSCAR EDITION

What a pleasure to sit in with my dear old friend Craig D. Lindsey on KPFT’s The Sour Hour. We piss and moan a bit about the Oscars and complain about the idiots in the Trump administration but mostly I just laugh at Craig’s rants. He calls me up about halfway through the show, after playing the Backstreet Boys song that was in Booty Call. – The Sour Hour, 02/28/2018

IMG_3630

Continuing in my role as the Billy Preston of the Spoilerpiece gang, I sat in with friends Dave Riedel and Evan Crean and tried to guess what happens in Justice League without having seen it yet. Dave and I reccomended Last Flag Flying while Evan shared highlights from the 29th annual Boston Jewish Film Festival. We also talked about Near Beer. – Spoilerpiece Theatre, 11/17/2017
