    New Kid Joey McIntyre to premiere one-man show in Denver

    UPDATE: The Garner Galleria Theater put out this press release on Thursday Joey McIntyre is THE KID, the youngest member of New Kids on the Block, the biggest “boy band” in history (and no, The Beatles are not a “boy band”).

    ‘Man Of Steel’ film review: Lots of havoc, not enough heart

    RELATED: Watch Parente’s exclusive interviews with the cast of ‘Man of Steel’ When I was kid, Superman would leap tall buildings in a single bound. In “Man Of Steel,” he’d rather knock them over. And over. And over. The amount of CGI destruction in this film eclipses almost everything else. And that’s a shame. Henry Cavill brings the right blend of hesitation and self-doubt to his role. Amy Adams is stellar as Lois Lane, redefining the character. But it’s hard […]

    DENVER — It’s been a good year for movies.

    Age before beauty: ‘Quartet’ is latest film to respect its elders

    It’s no secret Hollywood is obsessed with youth. An army of plastic surgeons has nipped, tucked, and plumped just about every aging actress in town. Getting old is to be feared and avoided. That seems a sad mindset to me, and it’s left a real void on the big screen. Until now. This, my friends, is the year of the Senior. I’ll gladly raise a glass of Geritol in celebration. I was thrilled when “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” chose to honor the […]

    ‘Gangster Squad’ is Hollywood at its biggest, and close to its best

    DENVER — There’s plenty of firepower in “Gangster Squad.” And Ultimately, the film hits its target, but falls just short of a bull’s-eye. Mobster films have been a staple of Hollywood since the start. “Gangster Squad” doesn’t look to reinvent the wheel, but adds some refreshing spins. The story centers on Los Angeles in the years just after World War II. The town is corrupt, ruled by a brutal yet flashy gangster named Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). Cohen has bribed enough […]

    Opinion: The best film of 2012 … and why I waited 5 months to see it

    July 19th was a long day. At work, I stayed late to cover the local premiere of a Hollywood Blockbuster. I interviewed costumed fans and enthused moviegoers. We were all swept up in the unique joy that film makers can still bring; the anticipation and excitement shared in a crowded lobby. I almost stayed for the midnight show, but opted to head home. I figured I’d see it the next day. While I slept that night, an unimaginable horror unfolded […]
