Of the wide releases this week The Legend Of Tarzan was one we've been anticipating as a potential blockbuster worthy of attention. With the strong trailers, director David Yates (who made the last four Harry Potter films and soon to be hotly-anticipated latest from writer J.K. Rowling: Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them) and stars like Samuel L. Jackson & Christoph Waltz, we were hopeful. But two thirds of the reviews say Tarzan is "no king of swing." Alas, it seems the summer of MMM continues- mediocre mainstream movies. "Tarzan is too dull to offer consistent pulp excitement, too self-serious to let itself have fun, and too reliant on same-y CG spectacle to truly thrill." "While the talented cast and a solid director make for a serviceable and intermittently entertaining adventure, there's very little about this film that screams, YOU GOTTA SEE THIS." Chris gives the summer "blockbuster" season so-far a grade of FFF - flat formulaic films. Not surprisingly about two thirds of the reviews for Steven Spielberg's new film The BFG are positive. It appears this may not rank as one of Spielberg's best, but still a worthy addition to a mediocre summer. "As a character, the BFG is a wondrous creation, and Mark Rylance does a magnificent job bringing him to life." "You can see a thousand movies and think that you've become immune to dazzling visuals - until you see them done right." We always look for smaller films cinema fans may enjoy. This week includes the latest from Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind) - Microbe And Gasoline. The buzz is good on this. "Just when it seemed as though director Michel Gondry would be lost in the clouds forever, he comes back down to earth with a winsomely grounded coming-of-age tale that makes the most of his talents." "If this film were a person, you'd want to give it a big hug." We'll talk this and more on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions. - "He's Tarzan. You're Jane. He'll come for you."

A simple success strategy helped build the stellar reputation of acclaimed film critic and novelist Thelma Adams. Before putting pen to paper, she seeks commonality with the celebrities she profiles. She did this, too, with the historical figures who people her poignant new novel, The Last Woman Standing. Both Josephine Marcus, Wyatt Earp's wife for nearly 50 years, and Molly Fly, a wild west photographer who shot photos herself and preserved those of her more famous husband, are featured in Thelma's new book. For two decades, Thelma has written celebrity features and film criticism for high-profile publications. Her debut novel, Playdate, won high critical acclaim. For insight into successful interviewing and writing techniques, tune in this week to The Studio with Cheryl and Thelma Adams.
Familiarity gives us comfort. Old memories anchor us as we careen into the future. I don't travel much. But when I do I am drawn to the touchstones of my past. More than once in recent years I have been pulled in by the nostalgic powers of a yellow and red Kent Feeds sign. Kent was a major brand in the sixties and seventies. Their signs were everywhere. Almost everyone in my family had a yellow nylon Kent Feeds windbreaker or a matching cap. Make the drive to Brighton some day. You'll see that rusted logo on a building at the east end of main street just before you head out of town to Washington.

Two things, minimum, you will want to know about the next show: I am playing Ray LaMontagne's album Ouroboros in its entirety. This is some fabulous stuff, seriously. Mellow, but very powerful. Melodic, but trancey. Hey, listen up if you have not heard anything besides the single. Also, I am playing side two of an album called Schizofrenia by Taste of Blues. Their name says it quite well. There is a slight blues tinge to the pop and rock they deliver. Listen closely to the lyric content, you will be glad you did. Oh, and I have 9 other songs, including a 3 song mini-set by From Beyond and their self-titled release. Cool Breeze
