LISTEN: Movie Reviews: "X-Men", "Blended"

LISTEN: Movie Reviews:

Hap Erstein with PalmBeachArtsPaper.com shares his reviews of the latest films, most of which he actually enjoys.  Find out why.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" - The X-men (and women) join forces with their earlier selves to change a pivotal historical event.

"The Love Punch" - Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan in a romantic comedy.

"Blended" - Another Adam Sandler flick featuring Drew Barrymore as, at least it appears, his love interest.  This makes three movies with Sandler and Barrymore, including "The Wedding Singer" and "50 First Dates".  You almost wonder if his real-life wife is jealous.

"Chef" - This Jon Favreau comedy has been out since earlier this month, but is slowly expanding in theaters.  This film festival movie features such names as Dustin Hoffman, Scarlett Johanssen and Sofia Vergara.  Even Robert Downey Jr. shows up in this film and much of it was shot in South Florida.  Favreau wrote, directed and stars.

Hap's Art House Pick of the Week

"Locke" - Tom Hardy, who played "Bane" in "The Dark Knight Rises" stars completely by himself, in a vehicle.  Hap says it's better than it sounds.
