Jennifer Lopez, Milo Ventimiglia, Vanessa Hudgens and Leah Remini are the stars of new romance / comedy Second Act.
Directed by Peter Segal, Lopez plays a retail worker who reinvents her life / life-story and shows Madison Avenue what street smarts can do…
Two of my favourite romantic comedies (The wedding Planner (2001) and Maid In Manhattan (2(002) star Jennifer Lopez. Hopefully this will be another favourite to add to the list, regardless of the obvious similarities to the maid In Manahattan story.
Charlyne Yi, Freddie Stroma and Treat Williams also star.
Starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Sasha Lane, Jennifer Ehle, Quinn Shephard and directed by Desiree Akhavan; The Miseducation Of Cameron Post is the story of a teenage girl who was forced forced into a gay conversion therapy centre by her conservative guardians…
I’m in because it looks like a well acted role by Moretz; a good thing since the story is so interesting and based on true events.
And yes, every single time I read the title of this movie I think of The Miseducation Of Lauren Hill, a brilliant album.
Co-written by Eddie Murphy and directed by Reginald Hudlin, 1992 comedy / drama Boomerang centres arounda successful executive / womaniser named Marcus. Marcus finds that his lifestyle choices have turned back on him following the arrival of his new female boss.
Starring Murphy, Robin Givens, Halle Berry, Chris Rock, Grace Jones and Martin Lawrence, Boomerang is a movie I enjoyed today as much as I did when I first saw it as a teenager. The film is funny. It also features one of the most memorable versions of a player / womaniser that I’ve ever seen on film.
Hudlin’s movie is beautifully produced; from the clothes, location(s), lighting, humour and more. Another highlight is the fact that most if not all of the women in this movie are empowered and powerful. I also couldn’t help but notice that Givens is truly one of the most beautiful women ever. Her character is fun, stunning and very much in charge.
The one thing I noticed that perhaps isn’t particularly great about this film is Martin Lawrence’s acting skills. Beyond that though, it’s fun, funny and quite the visual feast – in more ways than one. Watch it, I say!
Directed by Drake Doremus of Like Crazy (2011), Zoe is a new sci-fi / romance centred around two colleagues working on technology to improve and perfect romantic relationships. As their work progresses, their discoveries become more interesting.
Ewan McGregor, Léa Seydoux, Theo James and Rashida Jones star…
The subject matter definitely has my attention. Before the trailer ended, I was already having quite a time with the question of who I’d choose if I were in Seydoux’s character’s shoes.
Now looking forward to finding out about all the variables; the ones that will help with the final choice of man or ‘machine’.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a new drama / romance that tells the story of teenage girl whose secret love letters are exposed.
Based on the novel by Jenny Han; Lana Condor, John Corbett, Noah Centineo and Emilija Baranac star…
As I watched this trailer, I thought ‘here we go, just the same old teen story…’ But then the reason the protagonist faints at the beginning is revealed and I decide that I could probably dedicate some time to this movie. Especially since – luckily for me, my high school crush was never so cruel as to tell me that nothing would ever happen between us.
I’m going to let this movie take me back to my early teenage years as I reminisce about the boy who made school an event I was always more than happy to wake up for.
Directed by Claire Scanlon, in Set It Up Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell play two corporate executive assistants who hatch a plan to match-make their two bosses played by Taye Diggs and Lucy Liu…
This one should hopefully be good for when I’m in the mood for some ‘easy viewing.’ I like Diggs and Liu. The latter especially because I’m forever a massive fan of her character (Ling Woo) in Ally McBeal.
Biography / drama Mary Shelley is about the love affair between poet Percy Shelley and 18 year old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin. A relationship which resulted in Mary Shelley writing her famous gothic novel Frankenstein.
Directedby Haifaa Al-Mansour; Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Bel Powley and Douglas Booth star…
I’m in for the story of a woman who overcame and gave us an example of how to turn heartbreak into something beautiful.
Additional supporting cast includes Jack Hickey, Joanne Froggatt, Stephen Dillane, Tom Sturridge and Ben Hardy.
