EXPERIMENTER (2015): Time To Think About How Good You Are At Obeying Authority

Based on the work of real life social psychologist Stanley Milgram, Experimenter focuses on the 1961 radical behavior experiments that Milgram carried out, in order to test the ordinary person’s willingness to obey authority.

With  Peter Sarsgaard, John Leguizamo, Winona Ryder and Anton Yelchin as the leading cast, I’m excited to see  how this intriguing true story plays out.

Happy Experimenter 🙂

WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS (2015): New Trailer Featuring Zac Efron, Emily Ratajkowski & Good Music

I wasn’t sure what to make of the initial trailer for Zac Efron’s latest movie, We Are Your Friends, but after watching the second, my mind is changed.

Movies that have characters working hard, sacrificing and dedicating their energy to whatever it is that makes them come alive are always appealing. Especially when the characters are faced with outside pressure to do the contrary.

Directed by Max Joseph and featuring a supporting cast that includes Wes Bentley, Emily Ratajkowski and Shiloh Fernandez, I’ll definitely be watching – for the story the promise of good electronic/ dance music.

Happy We Are Your Friends 🙂

I found the first instalment in the Maze Runner series ok. The best parts being a few well executed tense and edge of your seat moments.

With trailer 2, things are looking even more exciting…

May the film be at least half as thrilling as this trailer.

Happy Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials 🙂

Trailer 1 of The Hunger Games, Mocking Jay Part 2 arrives and it’s clear that the makers had the word ‘epic.’ in mind. Huge fans of the franchise will be overjoyed and might even scream. I’m not the biggest fan so I didn’t, but I do understand.

Happy The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, Part 2 🙂

Starring Chris Evans, an Actor best known for his role as Marvel’s Captain America and British Actress Alice Eve, Before We Go is a drama / romance  about two people that meet on the subway in New York City.

Something reminiscent of Richard Linklater’s brilliant film, Before Sunrise (2004) is what I’m thinking after watching the trailer. As such, I look forward to seeing how this particular story unfolds. Even more so because this is Evans’ directorial debut.

Such lovely trailer music…

Happy Before We Go 🙂

TED (2012): Silly, Filthy & Good

You wouldn’t be blamed if after hearing the concept of Ted, your reaction was, really? Please!

But then you learn a little more and realise that the movie is  the brainchild of Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy. He not only stars as the voice of Ted but directed and wrote it too.

Fans of the very successful Family Guy series would be the most excited. Just a little more perhaps, than fans of general good humour – particularly humour  that’s silly and filthy in parts.

Also starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, there’s plenty of funny dialogue. One of the key highlights for me is Donny, the character played by Giovanni Ribisi and his highly peculiar dance moves. Lastly, who could forget the scene with all the ‘white trash’ names…

Mandy, Marylyn, Tiffany, Candace, Brandy, Heather Channing, Brianna, Amber Sabrina, Melody, Dakota, Ciara, Bambi, Christal, Samantha, Autumn, Ruby, Taylor, Tara Tammy, Lauren, Charlene, Chantal, Courtney, Misty, Jenny, Christa, Mindy, Noel, Shelby, Trina, Riba, Cassandra, Nikki, Kelsy, Shauna, Jolene, Earlene, Claudia, Savannah, Casey, Dolly, Kendra, Kylie, Chloe, Devon, Emma-Lou, Becky, Brandy-Lyn, Heather-Lyn, Tammy-Lyn

Looking forward to watching the sequel, Ted 2 (2015) in a few days.

Happy Ted 🙂

I am Chris Farley features stories from friends, family, comics and Actors that worked with Farley prior to his unfortunate death by drug overdose in 1997.

Directed by Brent Hodge and Derik murray, I’m most curious about how Farley chose comedy and the cautionary tale in the struggles and success that resulted in his unfortunately early demise at 33.

Happy I Am Chris Farley 🙂
