If a tree falls in the woods, does anyone hear it? If Ian doesn't like J.A. Bayona's A Monster Calls, does anyone care? Well, yes, as you'll hear in this short but sweet discussion with Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie. The new family film about a young boy who learns to deal with loss, thanks to the help of a fantastical friend, is a visual wonder in the tradition of movies like The NeverEnding Story and The Iron Giant. But is being like other movies enough to earn a pass? The answer may surprise you.
Also, provides a zero-hour reminder of tonight's 40th anniversary screening of Saturday Night Fever at Classic Cinemas Elk Grove, hosted by Pat "The Uber Critic" McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com!
