Final Thoughts:
Speaking of winners this week Mark at the Movies Episode 295. I'm going to save the best for last because I have some strong thoughts on this weeks show that I want to really focus on and I don't want it to get lost in translation. So I am going to start with the end with new to DVD. New this week is Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Mark sat down with the cast of the 2 movies and that was the highlight of the movie. The first new movie this week but the second talked about was Poltergeist Movie This week the cast of Mark at the Movies talked with Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt Everyone said to see this movie but added don't watch it alone. This week in Retro Reel Review it was a double review Mark S. Allen started out talking about Mad Max when he sat down with Charlize Theron Then Mark brought up your man in Houston Dave Morales to talk about Pitch Perfect 2 which Dave loved then Mike Mechanick made an appearance he talked about Mad Max and without giving too much away about Mike's Rant I will just say Mike is a genius. Adding in some extra fact this week was Kelly Deaton. Kelly added why Charlize cut her hair for the roll. In addition to Mark and Kelly being the show the other members were Chris Emery Jordyn M. Rolling Dionna Renee and Alexa Renee I put Alexa at the end as a set up for the first movie talked about this week and that was Tomorrowland. To borrow a phrase from basketball Alexa ran point this week sitting down with 2 of it's stars Raffey Cassidy and Britt Robertson and director Brad Bird about the movie and I have to say and will say in ALL CAPS. ALEXA DID SUCH AN OUTSTANDING JOB. Her line of questioning was fantastic. So well done and so professional.

So please if you want to see how amazing Alexa did and how great everyone works together please download the Mark at the Movies App. Trust me you will not be sorry. You can also go on the YouTube Channel for extra footage.

Next week Dwayne The Rock Johnson stars in San Andreas until then I will see you at the movies...
