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.
“Get on Up” entertains and enthralls because just like its subject, the late James Brown, it’s not afraid to break the rules.
The USF/IMG Radio Network team has added a big-name Bulls legend for the 2014 USF football season: former USF standout linebacker and all-time leading tackler Kawika Mitchell.
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.
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.
Though it has some clever moments, “And So It Goes” is neither wickedly nasty enough nor sweet and romantic enough to leave any sort of lasting impression.
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.”
