We’re back with another Wine the Flick?! I got such a great response to the first video I did with Lauren Sivan about “American Made” that I wanted to try it again.
This time, my friend David Park — an actor, comedian and improv guru — joins me at the ArcLight Hollywood for a screening of “Happy Death Day,” a horror comedy in which a vapid college student (Jessica Rothe) keeps living the same day over and over again and keeps getting killed at the end. Will she ever solve her own murder mystery? Will she ditch her bitchy sorority sisters for the sweet, nerdy guy who’s admired her from afar? And will this movie breathe new life into the familiar “Groundhog Day” formula? Click, clink and enjoy.
So I’m doing something new that may go somewhere and may go nowhere, but it’s an idea I’ve been thinking about for a while and finally got a chance to try. I’ve wanted to do a series of reviews in which I sit down with a friend over a glass of wine, talk about a movie and shoot video of our conversation. It’s sort of a spin-off of What the Flick?! that I’m calling Wine the Flick?!
For my inaugural edition, I brought along the brilliant and beautiful Lauren Sivan, a longtime TV and radio personality, to see “American Made.” The latest Tom Cruise extravaganza — based on the true story of Barry Seal, a pilot who got insanely wealthy smuggling weapons and drugs into the United States during the ’80s — is as Tom Cruisey as we’d hoped. Please enjoy this (extremely rough) first effort, shot at the ArcLight Hollywood over a couple glasses of cabernet. More to come.
