Your Call 100807 All Hail the Blockbuster

If you see a movie advertised on the side of a bus does that make you unlikely to see it in the theatre? On the next Your Call we welcome Kenneth Turan, film reviewer for NPR and the Los Angeles Times and author of Now in Theaters Everywhere: A Celebration of a Certain Kind of Blockbuster. Turan’s first book was called Never Coming to a Theater Near You and celebrated rarely seen movies. This time he tells you which movies with big budgets are worth your time. What is your favorite blockbuster? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
Kenneth Turan in Los Angeles
