What the Flick?! — The Hundred-Foot Journey

The boys and I took a bite of this feel-good food porn and found it charmingly light but exceedingly bland.

What the Flick?! — Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Our viewers are extremely angry about our review of the TMNT reboot, it seems.

What the Flick?! — Guardians of the Galaxy

“Guardians of the Galaxy” is the cheekiest, wackiest sci-fi blockbuster you’ll see all summer. Great cast, inspired visuals and a blast of a soundtrack of ’70s pop tunes which will be stuck in your head long afterward. Trust me.

What the Flick?! — Get on Up

Matt, Alonso and I were all shocked at how good “Get on Up” is and how it breathes life into the musical biopic, a genre that’s typically riddled with cliches. (See: “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.” No really, you should see it.) Chadwick Boseman is completely captivating as James Brown and the film as a whole is massively entertaining.

What the Flick?! — The Purge: Anarchy

Ben and I were stunned that the sequel to “The Purge” is so much better than the original. Writer-director James DeMonaco expands on his clever idea both geographically and emotionally. It’s the best movie in a bad week for movies.

What the Flick?! — Snowpiercer

Believe the hype, guys — this movie is bad-ass. Bong Joon-ho’s film has serious things to say about class disparity but it’s also thrilling in its surprises and dazzling in its production design. If it’s not playing near you, please check it out through video on demand.

What the Flick?! — Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Machine gun-toting apes barreling on horseback through the fiery streets of San Francisco? Yes, please. Matt Reeves’ movie is pretty bad-ass — thrilling, terrifying and vividly rendered — but it also features some intimate moments of real emotional poignancy. We all dug it, although Alonso was less wowed than Ben and I were.

What the Flick?! — Boyhood

All of us were moved and wowed by Richard Linklater’s ambitious and profound film following the life of a Texas boy from first grade through freshman year in college. Solely as an experiment — shooting with the same actors in snippets at a time over a 12-year period — “Boyhood” would have been fascinating. But it’s also subtly observant and deeply affecting.

What the Flick?! — Transformers: Age of Extinction

It’s the fourth ‘Transformers” movie. You know what you’re getting into by now — only worse. Our good friend, LA Weekly critic Amy Nicholson, joins me and Alonso for a fun and lively discussion.
