Summer Movie Preview with Grae Drake and Me

Yes, it’s time for another movie preview show featuring me and my colorful partner Grae Drake, senior editor of Rotten Tomatoes. We enjoy doing these half-hour shows for ReelzChannel and try not to reveal our opinions to each other beforehand. That makes our conversations more spontaneous and fun to do. This time around we’re reviewing one movie (Captain America: Civil War) and previewing a good many of the upcoming summer releases, including X-Men: Apocalypse, Star Trek Beyond, Finding Dory, and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Leonard Maltin is one of the world’s most respected film critics and historians. He is best known for his widely-used reference work Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide and its companion volume Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide, now in its third edition, as well as his thirty-year run on television’s Entertainment Tonight. He teaches at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and appears regularly on Reelz Channel and Turner Classic Movies. His books include The 151 Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, Of Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated Cartoons, The Great Movie Comedians, The Disney Films, The Art of the Cinematographer, Movie Comedy Teams, The Great American Broadcast, and Leonard Maltin’s Movie Encyclopedia.

He has been the recipient of awards from the American Society of Cinematographers, the Telluride Film Festival, Anthology Film Archives, and San Diego’s Comic-Con International. Perhaps the pinnacle of his career was his appearance in a now-classic episode of South Park. (Or was it Carmela consulting his Movie Guide on an episode of The Sopranos?)
