  • Channeling the spirit of Die Hard with some video game era grandeur, Skyscraper won’t be the cultural icon its predecessor was, but it’s a heck of a lot of fun for its hour and fifty minute run time.

  • Star Wars returns with a shallow but fun romp featuring some of its most iconic characters. It probably won’t stay with you for very long, but you’ll enjoy it while you watch it.

  • If you don't know that Deadpool 2 is coming to theaters this week then you probably don't care and can stop reading our review right now. For the rest of you, don't worry - we attended a preview last week and LOVED the movie. I'm not going to spoil it for you, but here's a few reasons why you need to see it too.

  • In what Marvel Studios likely expected to be this year’s biggest film before the box-office dominance of February’s Black Panther, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) teams up two directors with about two dozen superheroes in an intergalactic battle against Thanos, the giant purple genocidal maniac bent on collecting the six Infinity Stones which will allow him to control reality and unleash is evil plan upon the universe.  And the only people standing in his way are Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket the Raccoon, Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, Black Widow, Purple Horseshoe, Doctor Strange- you know what, let’s just say “a lot of characters,” and one of those was a cereal marshmallow anyway.

  • This review is simple - Blockers is one of the funniest movies in a LONG TIME. Go see it! OK, so you want more? Here you go...

  • Sideways is one of the greatest Guys Weekend movies as far as I'm concerned. It's raw and fun - without being stupid and silly like tends to be the the case all too often. Most of all though, it highlighted one of the most fabulous parts of the country - the Santa Ynez Valley, including Santa Barbara and Solvang. This is an absolutely gorgeous part of California that is located just far enough away from Los Angeles to be a different world... but still close enough for a quick getaway. Let's take a look at how you can walk in the footsteps of Miles (Paul Giamonte) and Jack (Thomas Haden Church).

  • Another year, another Star Wars.  This time, we have The Last Jedi, Episode VIII of the Star Wars series, at least the sequential series.  While there isn’t a lot that is very original going on here, and it retreads The Empire StrikesBack in much of the same way The ForceAwakens did with the original film and parts of Return of theJedi, it does so far more competently and coherently than Episode VII did, and it’s a fun and engaging movie, visually stunning at times.  While John Williams’ score that might not rank at the top of the series’ offerings, it is at the very least par for the course.  And, to be fair, how much more can you really do with the Star Wars score at this point, and how much is even needed?

  • When I first shared with friends that I was heading to Arkansas, the first thing most people asked was, "Why? What's there?" Honestly I didn't really know what to expect aside from some music history and hopefully some good BBQ. After spending four days in the Delta region I can't wait to go back.

  • We're headed off on another amazing tour, this time to visit the Arkansas Delta for a music and BBQ tour that is sure to rank up there with my best trips ever. The awesome folks at Arkansas Tourism who have sponsored this trip have been nice enough to even create a playlist for this road trip. So... instead of keeping it all to myself I want to share it with you guys as well! 

  •  Rogue One is the Star Wars movie fans have been waiting for since 1983. Simply put: Rogue One delivers!

    If you were like us here at ManTripping, last year's The Force Awakens was a fun, but fairly bland and forgettable nostalgia piece that was too dependent on fan service and too hindered by its safe script that was riddled with contrivances and poor dialog, as well as a protagonist without any real character arc. Rogue One, on the other hand, will prove that all they needed to do to rekindle the Star Wars spirit in fans was to actually make a good movie.

  • Allied is a fun and bittersweet date movie, but it's not the action film or spy drama the trailers might have you believe.

  • Looking for a fun gift for the guys in your life? We think this Stay Puft man is pretty cool as ar the other products that Underground Toys has produced as part of their license with the Ghostbusters movie. While honestly I hate feminized movies that are made simply for the fact of making it a "girl thing", these toys are fun and you can just pretend that it's a throw back to the original series if you want when you buy this as a gift for the man in your life!

  • Last summer we got invited to check out an awesome new music festival in San Diego - KAABOO. Since then it's been at the top of our list for 2017 and the wait is almost over! The 2017 KAABOO lineup looks even better, with bands including Jimmy Buffett, Aerosmith, Jack Johnson, Fall Out Boy, Lenny Kravitz and so many more that I can't event list them all here. Plus, this is not just a "music festival" - they've got celebrity chefs, comedians, artists and even spa treatments.

  • As stoic in demeanor and violent in action as ever, Matt Damon returns to the titular role in Jason Bourne after a nine year hiatus and a temporary series handoff to Jeremy Renner in 2012's The Bourne Legacy. And everything is just how you remember it.

  • Thanks to Smirnoff I had an amazing opportunity earlier this month. I got to go to the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in Las Vegas, where I was exposed to a lot of new things and perhaps most importantly discovering a new side to the brand as well as people I had previously dismissed as "those silly club kids".

  • Some movies are works of cinematic genius designed to be studied by film students and others are simply meant to be enjoyed. The Huntsman: Winter's War falls into that latter category and enjoy it I did. I didn't see the first movie - Snow White and the Huntsman, so I can't compare it to this one. However, if you loved Frozen but thought it would be cool to have a live action version with child soldiers, some slapstick humor, flaming goblin guts, romantic hot tub scenes, and two sisters that well... didn't exactly get along... then this is your film.

  • If you thought that a "Snow White" movie was just for girls then holy shit, you are wrong. I'm really digging the fact that so many "classic stories" are being re-imagined and expanded, so when this came by my inbox just now I wanted to share it with you guys. The Huntsman will be in theaters on April 22.

  • To be completely fair, all movies are a product of their times. What made Star Wars great in the beginning, was its ability to meld groundbreaking special effects with compelling narrative drawing from timeless story lines. For the prequels they were a product of an industry drunk on CGI but immature to the point of not really understanding when to use computer graphics and when it would simply look better to have real props. The movie I watched yesterday morning is similarly a product of its time. That's not completely a bad thing but it did leave an awkward taste in my mouth despite it being generally a fun movie to watch.

  • Seeing great bands that bring back memories of highschool are always great, but when they are free and you can enjoy not-overpriced booze, well... that's even better! I love Fremont Street so much, that I'm going to call it the Fun Side of Vegas from here on out. It's taken some time for Fremont Street to gain traction but it is absolutely on a roll now with some great hotels like The D, Golden Gate, and Golden Nugget as well as great free entertainment virtually every night. To extend things even further, the Fremont Street Experience launched Rock of Vegas Summer Concert series. We were there last week to see the Spin Doctors and Cherry Poppin' Daddies and had a blast!

  • The Ant-Man franchise comes on the heels of the ridiculously successful Avengers: Age of Ultron and last year's Guardians of the Galaxy. While an original member of the team in the comic series, this was perhaps seen as a riskier franchise than Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, or Captain America, the far more recognizable members of Marvel’s premier superhero group. Previous efforts to bring Ant-Man to the screen suffered a variety of pre-production setbacks, never quite reaching the screen. But now Ant-Man is here, and Marvel seems intent on grabbing audiences’ love for snarky, roguish heroes. Whether or not this is really faithful to the Ant-Man franchise, you’d have to ask a comic book reader far better versed with the character than I, but it works for this movie, for the most part. Ant-Man combines a superhero movie with a heist movie, adds in a legion of arthropod sidekicks, and entrusts the comedic talents of Paul Rudd to steer the thing, which he does admirably.
