Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See MARGUERITE In Phoenix

Enter For A Chance To See MARGUERITE On March 23rd at 7:00 PM in Phoenix.

1921, the beginning of the Golden Twenties. Not far from Paris. It is party day at Marguerite Dumont’s castle. Like every year, an array of music lovers gathers around a great cause at the owner’s place. Nobody knows much about this woman except that she is rich and that her whole life is devoted to her passion: music. Marguerite sings. She sings wholeheartedly, but she sings terribly out of tune. In ways quite similar to the Castafiore, Marguerite has been living her passion in her own bubble, and the hypocrite audience, always coming in for a good laugh, acts as if she was the diva she believes she is. When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. This gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream. Despite her husband’s reluctance, and with the help of a has-been divo, both funny and mean, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers.

Movie Review: 'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot'

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is pure WTF.

Review by Matt Cummings

For Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, one might look at the title and automatically pick up the 'WTF' reference. But for most of this slow-moving, almost painful to watch dramedy, one might use the same phrase to describe their experience as they try to figure out how they got cajoled into spending good money on a film that doesn't know what it is.

Serving as a producer for powder-puff stories at a NY television station, journalist Kim Baker (Tina Fey) needs a change and soon. A single forty-something with no children, she volunteers to cover the 2004 war in Afghanistan in a desperate effort to get noticed by a studio. Bidding a farewell to her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend (Josh Charles), Baker comes face to face with the war and struggles to steer clear of it. Her desire for the next big story sees Kim and other journalists like Tanya (Margot Robbie) and Iain (Martin Freeman) taking unwise risks that equate to looking for the next high. Drawn in by her desire to tell the real story behind the war, but unable to steer clear of its dangers, Kim must balance between the high risk/reward of her job and the worry that she's becoming consumed by it.

Based on the memoir The Taliban Shuffle, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot tries to make a statement about war, money, sex, and job security, doing none of them particularly well. Blame that on Directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who can't get the tone of this thing nailed down: one minute it's hilarious political comedy, the next it's a super serious message about thrill seekers who happen to cover the news. Fey emerges from the wreckage in the best shape, proving she can handle a little dramedy better than she did in 2014's frankly disgusting Admission. There, she played a thoroughly unlikable college recruiter who's just a tad higher up on the food chain in WTF than she was in that mess. We laugh with her through the adventures, but never appreciate her work ethic or empathize with her wish for a more successful life.

The connections to Admission are startling when you expand the circle to include Freeman and Robbie. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot features a slew of unlikable characters whose ulterior motives include partying, screwing (sometimes each other for a story), and in general behaving like frat students in a nation that doesn't trust them. Sadly, we don't really get what WTF is supposed to be, settling for generic cynical and dark without showing us the true shadows. There is a story to be told here about the personal dangers of covering big news, another about the money behind war, and perhaps a trio of others; but the default result is romantic comedy that really isn't very funny. Moreover, the climactic ending where US Marines rescue a journalist - who's again searching for that big high - comes off like a waste of taxpayer dollars that doesn't serve the story one bit.

I will say that Alfred Molina - who plays an overly amorous Afghani Prime Minister - is hilarious throughout, giving Fey a run for her money. He makes Whiskey Tango Foxtrot a bit more bearable. But that isn't saying much when every character (including his) has their intentions broadcast from a mile away. I found myself wondering if some higher-up who saw potential dollar signs instead of critical praise steamrolled this snoozer away from its intended path. It happens in film more often than you think, and in WTF's case it happens early and continually lets us down right when we're ready to give it a chance again.

There's several potentially biting storylines within Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, but Ficarra and Requa just can't draw them out. Fey turns in a great performance, but you'll be so bored to tears to care about her or whether American interests are best served overseas. With so many appealing alternatives out there - including some of the best television drama ever - this one is definitely FUBAR.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is Rated R for pervasive language, some sexual content, drug use and violent war images and has a runtime of 112 minutes.

Movie Review: 'London Has Fallen'

London Has Fallen is pure mayhem that doesn't care what you think.

Review by Matt Cummings

Just about everything falls in London Has Fallen, including some of England's most iconic scenery; but that shouldn't keep you from checking out this brisk, well-paced action flick that probably hits a little too close to home in terms of its believability.

When the British Prime Minister suddenly dies while recovering from surgery, the world's leaders rush to gather and pay their respects. For President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckart), it's his duty to attend such functions; but for his Secret Service bodyguard Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), the dangers of showing up with such little planning represent an immediate danger that he cannot prevent. True to form, the entire event has been orchestrated by a weapons supplier who watched his family die when the G8 made his house disappear years before. When his plan of terror begins to unfold throughout London, Asher and Banning get caught in the middle of an elaborate plan to whack every one of those leaders. As the Secret Service Director (Angela Bassett), the nation's top general (Robert Forster), and the Seaker-of-the-House turned Vice-President (Morgan Freeman) work together to keep Asher safe, Banning must ferry the president block-by-block to the US Embassy, while the bad guys pursue them to see Asher executed over social media.

For 99 minutes, London Has Fallen blasts its audience with a combination of action porn and in-your-face messaging about America being the stronger nation than any terrorist cell. The latter is particularly evident in the film's climax, as Butler puts a whooping on their leader while yelling, "America will be here 1,000 from now!" If you can balance that sort of on-the-nose patriotism with some genuinely good action and surprising story twists, London probably won't bore you. Director Babak Najafi takes over for Antoine Fuqua, managing to maintain a frantic pace that honestly doesn't need two hours to tell its story. People and things get attacked. We fight back. Butler rails off some good one-liners. Done.

A team of writers led by Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt (who penned Olympus Has Fallen) are joined by Christian Gudegast and Chad St. John. With that many hands in the cookie jar, one would think London might get convoluted; luckily, the film maintains its core message about survival in the face of a well-planned siege. But don't get me wrong, we're not talking Oscar-caliber acting or stunts here. London Has Fallen is here to entertain, even though some might not like just how likely an attack like this could be possible.

I've always said that Butler is an action star waiting for the right vehicle. Based on the success of Olympus, I was hoping we would see him step into Stallone's shoes long ago, and that London would be our celebration of his long-awaited return to the franchise. And while that new role still eludes him, it doesn't mean we can't enjoy him in his element. He enjoys a witty banter with Eckhart, who too is still looking for direction after The Dark Knight. Adding Freeman and Bassett is almost not enough to keep Butler and Eckhart from enjoying great buddy-cop chemistry that never feels cheesy (a lot). it's one reason why Olympus was so stunningly good, and what helps to keep London Has Fallen from falling into VOD-land.

Some unenlightened critics have already dismissed London Has Fallen because it hits a little too close to home, cheapening the real possibility that our world leaders could be taken down if the right circumstances were in play. If you're willing to think that deep, then London isn't for you. And while it lacks some of the over-the-top action of the original, it's still far better than White House Down, which people usually confuse with this series. Perhaps that's the bigger problem here, but you won't care as you enjoy the cacophony of explosions, witty repartee, and solid performances from its leads. Any deeper analysis is ill-advised.

London Has Fallen is Rated R for strong violence and language throughout and has a runtime of 99 minutes.

What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see. Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club’s depraved owner, Darcy Banker (Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise.
