The Movie Critics: Nice Start, 2012

Don't you think it's a perfect time of year if you like to go to the movies? There’s no holiday shopping to do, no garden to tend, no snow to shovel, and no nice weather to miss. But when it comes to picking what films to see, that’s where the Movie Critics come in.

On this Friday's Walt Bodine Show, join guest host Sylvia Maria Gross as we review films released in Kansas City over the past three weeks, and ask our listeners to share their own reviews. We'll be joined by critics Loey Lockerby, of The Kansas City Star, Eric Melin, of Lawrence.com and Scene-Stealers.com, and Tom Poe, Professor of Film at UMKC.

TELL US:
What movies have you seen lately that left an impression? Good or bad?
