As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.

 Awaiting the Wisconsin walk: My chat with highwire artist Nik Wallenda
 The Wisconsin State Fair's Main Stage lineup this summer features some of the biggest names the celebration has wrangled up in recent note. And the biggest of the bunch - or at least certainly the most unusual - is tightrope artist extraordinaire Nik Wallenda. OnMilwaukee.com got a chance to talk one-on-one with the stuntman about preparing for another life-threatening performance and being in a highwire family dynasty that shows no sign of stopping.

 The Riverside's distant past will become the present as the legendary theater will play host to two screenings of the beloved 1942 classic "Casablanca" Friday and Saturday night. And to complete the blast to the past vibe of the event, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra will perform Max Steiner's famous score alongside the movie.

 MU's "The Bald Soprano" presents a classic play with a touch of "Star Trek" tech
 Eugene Ionesco's 1950 play "The Bald Soprano" - the first the famed playwright ever wrote - is an absurdist classic. It's one of the most performed shows in France with a permanent repertory spot at Theatre de la Huchette since 1957 and a large number of interpretations. It's safe to say, however, that few to none of those interpretations featuring digital actors getting beamed in like "Star Trek" characters.

 My conversation with a Blue Man
 The Blue Man Group is famous for several things: funky instruments, those old Intel ads, Tobias Funke proclaiming that "I blue myself!" on "Arrested Development" and, of course, the whole being covered in blue paint thing. But one of the crucial elements of the Blue Man Group is that they don't talk. So imagine my surprise in getting to interview a Blue Man (at least the transcription would be easy).

 Getting to know the MANDI nominees
 Tomorrow night, after weeks of anticipation and online voting, the Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development Innovation (MANDIs) will name the winners at a ceremony at the Potawatomi Event Center. However, there's still 24 hours left to learn about these community-impacting individuals and organizations and vote for the Wells Fargo People's Choice Award before the polls close and the numbers are tallied up.

 Indie horror hit "It Follows" creepily chronicles the terror of growing up
 For 100 minutes, writer-director David Robert Mitchell's breakout indie horror flick "It Follows" manages to maintain a continuous feeling of impending, skin-shivering dread. The smart, suspenseful result is the best kind of nightmare, one from which you want to wake up but are too eerily entranced to actually do anything about it.

 The fast and the ridiculous: "Furious 7" grows into a giddy action cartoon
 Completing the franchise's evolution from street racing box office surprise to global dominating live-action cartoon, "Furious 7" is basically Hollywood's version of a turducken. It's a greasy, gaudy monstrosity, a monument to excess and absurdity - all pretty much cooked to lip-smacking satisfaction.

 60 minutes of spy games: My (failed) mission to escape Escape MKE
 Getting locked in a room and having to solve puzzles and find clues in order to escape while an ominous clock ticks down is not usually a sign things are going well. Under most circumstances, it probably means you're living in a "Saw" film, and it's been nice knowing you. But that's exactly the experience I, along with four of my friends, signed up for recently at Escape MKE.

 "Wild Tales" is a bitterly entertaining six-course meal of sweet revenge
 The opening credits may prattle off stills of beasts - lions, zebras, cheetahs and the like - in the wild. They've got nothing, however, on the civilized animals of the deliciously devious Argentinean anthology - and 2015 Best Foreign Film nominee - "Wild Tales," their claws all out and bloody for revenge. And as the famous phrase goes, revenge is a dish best served six times and mercilessly. Or something like that.

 LBWN's Mobile Bike Hub keeps community rolling
 While another typically cold, grey Wisconsin winter winds down, spring is inching back into the air. All the signs are there: Baseball is back in business, the flowers and plants are beginning to bloom again, and bikes are emerging from their winter hibernation. And in the Layton Boulevard West Neighbors (LBWN), the return of the bikes also signals the return of the Mobile Bike Hub.
