NOW YOU SEE ME - AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER

Details kasey butcher

Remember a few years ago (okay, 2006) when magician movies were the big thing? Imagine the approach to the technique of magic from films like The Prestige paired with the pace and action of a heist movie. Now You See Me attempts to dazzle audiences with this combination, but ultimately fails to really pull it off.

THE GREAT GATSBY - AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER

Details Kasey Butcher

There has been a ton of press, speculation, and anticipation leading up to the release of Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. That kind of attention is only befitting a story about excess, secrecy, and speculation.

In Pat's church on that day, a re-enactment of Jesus' triumphant entry was held. As the procession passed Pat's pew, Sim, her husband, whispered into her ear, "Where's the ass?"

Whispering back into his ear, Pat said, "Sitting next to me."

To all you wonderful mothers out there... Schindler Sez..."Happy...

IRON MAN 3 - AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER

Details Kasey Butcher - Movie Review

To begin my review of Iron Man 3, I should probably confess that Iron Man is my favorite superhero. The nerd in me appreciates Tony Stark's genius and "smarter-than-thou" attitude. The girl in me appreciates Robert Downey Jr. This latest installment in the Iron Man franchise features its hero on the brink of a new crisis, a nervous breakdown.

Iron Man 3 picks up a short while after the events of last May's The Avengers, when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) nearly died to save the world. In the...
