Secretariat is just the film about horse racing to get people in the right mood for the annual running of the Kentucky Derby. If you want a horse racing film, you certainly could not do wrong with the Oscar-nominated Seabiscuit. Seabiscuit is without a doubt the better of the two films but we’re not here to talk about that film today. No, we’re here to discuss the one set during the three Triple Crown races.…"Secretariat Gets You In The Kentucky Derby Mood"

Writer-director Scott Abramovitch spoke with Solzy at the Movies last week about his new film, Eat Wheaties!, starring Tony Hale. As the call got underway, I learned that the filmmaker was a former bat boy for the Montreal Expos from 1992-1997. I’m a baseball fan myself so we could have talked forever about baseball. It just so happened that during the phone call, the Bally Sports Midwest telecast of the St. Louis Cardinals vs. Washington…"Scott Abramovitch talks Eat Wheaties!"

True, it’s a cringe-comedy but it’s not an anxiety-inducing comedy. The gist of the film is that Sid Straw (Tony Hale) is asked to co-chair the University of Pennsylvania west coast college reunion. Unfortunately for him, he also gets recruited to join Facebook. All the reunion planning is taking…"Eat Wheaties! Is A Cringe Classic In The Making"
