Friend of the Rocker Morning Show, man-about town, movie critic, and raconteur, Ryan Jay stopped by The Rocker Morning Show to talk movies opening this weekend.

Hell or Highwater

  • “It’s slow moving, boring… there’s a lot of space between good moments.”
  • “There were some moments but if I had started this at home, I wouldn’t have finished it.”
  • Skip it.

Ben-Hur

  • “…why remake a classic?”
  • “This movie is riddled with production value problems.”
  • “…halfway through the film there’s this scene on a slave ship that has some of the best special effects”… “but the movie goes back and forth between cool and totally lame.”
  • Rent it.
