Going to the movies? Tons of choices this weekend that include sharks, aliens and ... necrophilia. Something for everyone! Reviews and interviews here: http://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/movies/billgoodykoontz/2016/02/26/movie-reviews-bill-goodykoontz-phoenix-weekly-highlights/80952450/
You've got 'The Fits,' which is great, plus 'The Shallows,' 'Independence Day: Resurgence' and 'The Music of Strangers.'

Well this is unusual. Bunch of new movies this weekend and not a real dog in the bunch. Reviews and interviews here: http://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/movies/billgoodykoontz/2016/02/26/movie-reviews-bill-goodykoontz-phoenix-weekly-highlights/80952450/
With 'De Palma,' 'Central Intelligence' and 'Genius,' there's not a bad film in the bunch.

@HillaryClinton wins nomination? Some debate about that, but everyone agrees on this: Let's blame the media: http://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/movies/billgoodykoontz/2016/06/07/clinton-wins-nomination-sparking-media-backlash/85541356/
Supporters from all sides decried the Associated Press story Monday saying Clinton had secured the nomination

Almost meeting Muhammad Ali with my kids meant more than actually meeting a lot of celebrities. Blog post: http://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/movies/billgoodykoontz/2016/06/04/muhammad-ali-meeting-the-champ-almost-goodyblog/85394338/
Almost meeting the champ proved moving, even if we never quite got together

I see most of my peers liked "The Shallows." I did not, much. Though you may like it for the same reasons I didn't. http://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/movies/billgoodykoontz/2016/06/23/the-shallows-movie-review-blake-lively/86276864/
Blake Lively is in every scene, and she's fine, even if she's asked to do some ridiculous things

My 'Finding Dory' review. Not as great as 'Nemo,' but what is? I never wanted to hug a fish before. Till now. http://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/movies/billgoodykoontz/2016/06/15/finding-dory-movie-review-pixar-disney/85876896/
DeGeneres anchors the film this time, and she's terrific

I love movies like "The Wailing." A horror movie, for sure, but in reality a genre buffet. My review: http://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/movies/billgoodykoontz/2016/06/09/the-wailing-movie-review/85559450/
It's a horror movie, but director Na Hong-jin, who also wrote the script, mixes in lots of genres in his gory entertaining film.
