Felix “King Felix” Albuerne
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.
Much more akin to “The Fifth Element” than it is to “La Femme Nikita” and “Leon: The Professional”, Lucy, the latest from writer/director Luc Besson, might just be his most ambitious work yet.
The sequel to last year’s surprise hit “The Purge” improves on its predecessor by taking audiences out into the streets and into the chaos that was only hinted at in the first film.
Though its story plays it safe, “Disney’s Planes: Fire & Rescue” soars when it counts, delivering family-friendly thrills and eye-popping visuals while paying homage to the courage of real-life smokejumpers and firefighters.
“Sex Tape” has its moments of genuine hilarity, but for the most part it aims low and goes for easy laughs that it hopes will appeal to its target fortysomething audience.
Thoughtful, ambitious, and character-driven from start to finish, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is a worthy sequel to 2011′s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.”
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated after speeding down a street in Raleigh on Saturday, bringing the troubled Pro Bowler’s already cloudy future into more doubt.
“Tammy”, the latest big screen comedy from “Mike & Molly” star Melissa McCarthy, is as a film as big a sloppy mess as its main character. It’s a surprisingly unamusing and uninteresting film, especially considering the talent that McCarthy and writer/director Ben Falcone have to work with, and perhaps the best thing that can be said about it is that a scant 96 minutes, it’s mercifully short.
The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired defenseman Jason Garrison, the rights to forward Jeff Costello and a seventh-round pick at the 2015 NHL Entry draft from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for their second-round pick in 2014, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced today.
Incoherent, nonsensical, at times physically nauseating to watch in 3D, and perhaps worst of all mind-numbingly long at 2 hours and 45 minutes, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” sets a new all-time low for the 80′s toy line-inspired franchise.
Director Clint Eastwood’s film adaptation of “Jersey Boys”, the long-running Broadway musical, attempts to utilize the most distinctive structural elements of the stage production into what is essentially a biopic, and for the most part, his meticulous and patient approach to storytelling serves to enhance what was already a fascinating and uniquely American rise-to-stardom story.
