There’s a modern interpretation of Lord Of The Flies, William Golding’s classic novel of survival and savagery. This time it’s directed by Shyam Madiraju and features a cast that includes Nate Parker, Jessica Lowndes, Diego Boneta, James Remar and Rob Mayes…
Even though I’m definitely scared to think about a situation where cannibalism is a seemingly legitimate option in order to survive, I have to see Eden because the trailer has convinced me. That said, I probably won’t be doing that a few days before having to get on a plane.
Summer isn’t over yet but if you didn’t already know, it’s time for the Christmas movie trailer. Love The Coopers is the first one I’ve seen for 2015…
Does it look refreshing different? No but it does look like the Jessie Nelson directed seasonal film will provide precisely the mildly amusing yet heartwarming entertainment one can enjoy after stuffing ones face on the lord’s special day.
The cast list includes familiar names like Olivia Wilde, Diane Keaton, John Goodman, Amanda Seyfried, Marisa Tomei and Anthony Mackie.
A good looking comedy starring Emma Roberts and Nat Wolffe is coming…
What I like most is the idea of Mickey Rourke in a comedy role. Sarah Silverman’s involvement is also a plus but the thing I wish wasn’t the case is the length of the of this trailer in relation to how much of the plot it reveals.
Inspired by Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, Alive Inside presents brilliant insight into the broken American healthcare system. Specifically the nursing home and the extraordinary effect music has in restoring memory loss and a deep sense of self in dementia sufferers.
This is one of the best documentaries I’ve seen recently and it was impossible not to be moved by it.
Directed by Michael Rossato-Bennett, Alive Inside is the winner of the Audience Award at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Watch it and feel empowered.
The Ross Katz directed and rather aptly named comedy/ drama, Adult Beginners stars funny man Nick Kroll, Australian actress Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale.
If you’re open to a story about adult sibling relationships, starting again after losing everything, and getting your priorities in order, then Adult Beginners is interesting, though never too demanding.
The writing, chemistry between the three leads and the way the camera captures the lives of the characters makes for very believable and real situations. As for how engaging it all is, the phrase ‘incredibly engrossing’ definitely doesn’t fit.
As for the comedy, most of it will make you smile and 2 or three times you may laugh out loud. My interest in seeing Kroll in a somewhat serious role is why I watched. It also helped that the always reliable Byrne and Cannavale were involved.
Joel McHale, Jane Krakowski, Caitlin Fitzgerald and Jason Mantzoukas also star.
Writer/ Director Nancy Meyers’ new movie The Intern stars Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway…
I didn’t write about the first trailer because it didn’t have me excited. But the latest one is definitely preferable. It’s the young female entrepreneur element that appeals to me most. That and the generally trustworthy cast that includes Rene Russo.
