Prior to discovering his love for the radio industry and sports radio specifically, Felix Albuerne, our own “King Felix at the Movies”, was a teacher on both the high school and college levels. This, more than any other career path (and there have been many – textbook editor, live trivia host, Blockbuster Video manager …), prepared him for the joys of working in a field where one spends lots of time talking to audiences that aren’t really listening.

A graduate of both the University of Miami and University of Central Florida with degrees in Creative Writing and Connecticut School of Broadcasting, Felix comes to 98.7 The Fan after interning on “The Morning MIX with Scott McKenzie” on MIX 105.1, and then for 2 years serving as producer, web content coordinator, and movie critic for “The Rick Stacy Morning Show” on 1059 SUNNY FM, both in Orlando, FL. His favorite sports teams might not make him the most popular personality on The Fan when he cracks the mic to talk about sports – Miami Dolphins, Miami Hurricanes, and … wait for it … the New York Yankees! – but for the most part, he sounds like he knows what he’s talking about when it comes to film, especially for someone who never went to Film School.

Just don’t get him talking about comic books. That’s when he really, REALLY doesn’t shut up.

Clueless Movie Reviews: “This Is Where I Leave You”

Like the family at its center, “This is Where I Leave You” is a hilarious and charmingly cluttered mess.

Clueless Movie Reviews: “The Drop”

“The Drop” is intense, riveting, and as good a character-driven crime drama as any other released this past year.

Clueless Movie Reviews: “The November Man”

Former 007 Pierce Brosnan makes his return to the spy thriller genre in the solid (but not spectacular) “The November Man.”

Clueless Movie Reviews: “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For”

It sure looks and sounds like the original Sin City, but Sin City: A Dame to Kill For lacks the original’s punch and verve.

Clueless Movie Reviews: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Rest easy, children of the 90s. This is one childhood favorite that Michael Bay has not wrecked for you.

Clueless Movie Reviews: “Get On Up”

“Get on Up” entertains and enthralls because just like its subject, the late James Brown, it’s not afraid to break the rules.

Clueless Movie Reviews: “Guardians Of The Galaxy”

The latest Marvel Studios comic-book-to-film extravaganza brings lots of action and laughs, and also a not-so-healthy helping of cheese. Thankfully, most of it works.

Clueless Movie Reviews: “Hercules”

With a solid and occasionally clever script and a talented cast, this “Hercules” film is far more enjoyable than the one in theaters last January, and its worthy of your attention.
