It's late January (gee zee pee zee, feels like the year is flying by already :) and Chris Busch had this acute observation: "January – where bad films are stillborn"
TAmerican Sniper posterhis includes movies with big stars, especially Johnny Depp in Mortdecai "a stunning misfire, a tonally-jarring would-be caper comedy that reduces its talented cast to broad, goofy caricatures."

You may be aware of the national buzz American Sniper is creating. Starring the very talented Bradley Cooper, this Clint Eastwood directed, Best Picture Oscar nominated film has literally become a cultural, political and box office phenomenon. We've seen and will talk about it.

In our self-proclaimed "golden age of the documentary" there's another intriguing release, the highly reviewed (100% thumbs-up as of this writing): Red Army "about the Soviet Union and the most successful dynasty in sports history: the Red Army hockey team." "From the USSR to Russia, the film examines how sport mirrors social and cultural movements and parallels the rise and fall of the Red Army team with the Soviet Union." "Emotionally charged, viscerally exciting and consistently enlightening"

We'll talk about that, other new releases, what we've seen and more on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions", Fridays 12:30 PM again Sunday mornings 11:30. "I'm willing to meet my Creator and answer for every shot that I took." --Chris Kyle, American Sniper
