Bryan Cranston and Jennifer Garner are the stars of Wakefield, the Robin Swicord written and directed movie about a man’s  nervous breakdown that causes him to leave his wife and live in his attic for several months…

The premise of this movie is just too perfectly intriguing to ignore. I can’t wait to find out how Cranston’s character got to such a desperate place.

Wakefield Release Dates: May 19th, 2017 (UK)…

WHY HIM (2016): The Things I Liked…

I’ve always enjoyed James Franco in comedy roles more so than I do his dramatic work. I loved the trailer for Why Him which was well paced and fun, It also contained a healthy handful of good jokes and well placed expletives.

Fast forward to the movie, it could be argued that there’s an unnecessary level of cuss words, though I’d say not too uncomfortably gratuitous. Some scenes were a tad awkward and could have moved along more quickly, but overall I had a good time.

The soundtrack, Franco’s billionaire filterless character’s charm, Keegan Michael-Key’s fun estate manager and  peculiar ‘European’ accent are key highlights.

I also enjoyed the way Megan Mullally’s Barb responds to Franco’s Laird. My favourite of her lines being ‘Quite the outdoorsman.’ Watch it and see why that line is so perfect when it’s delivered – and for the rest of the good jokes. That’s assuming that all those colourful expletives haven’t scared you off, of course.

IN DUBIOUS BATTLE (2016): New Trailer From Nat Wolff, James Franco, Bryan Cranston, Selena Gomez…

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before on here, but I’m quite the emotional being. Precisely within 30 seconds of hitting play on the new trailer for In Dubious Battle, my eyeballs were near enough swimming in their sockets. All about an activist (Franco) fighting in the labor movement for farm workers in California during the 1930s, the cast for In Dubious Battle is pretty impressive. To name just a few we have Ed Harris, Robert Duvall, Vincent D’Onofrio, Nat Wolff and Selena Gomez. The movie is directed by and starring James Franco…

I’m quite sure that I saw another trailer for this movie a few months ago, but it did very little for me. It’s pretty damn amazing what a fresh edit can do, no?

Analeigh Tipton and Josh Hutcherson also star.

Based on the hit children’s TV series and directed by Dean Israelite, Power Rangers stars Elizabeth Banks, Bill Hader and Bryan Cranston. The actual  Power Rangers are played by Ludi Lin (The Black Ranger), RJ Cyler (The Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott (The Pink Ranger), Becky G (The Yellow Ranger) and Dacre Montgomery (The Red ranger). They are a group of are high school students infused with superpowers that they must harness to save the world…

I used to watch the TV series growing up. Something – namely the trailer plus the high number of super hero movies in recent years and my current feelings about the phenomenon (boredom) tells me that I should probably leave this movie to the die-hard fans and the young people who are still  into the TV series. I haven’t quite fully decided just yet.

Power Rangers Movie Release Dates: March 23rd, 2017 (GER); March 24th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Why Him? is the new ‘meet the parents’ comedy from James Franco, Bryan Cranston, Megan Mullally and Zoey Deutch…

Clean Trailer

Red Band Trailer – (I love this version because of Franco’s response to ‘ This is a 15 year-old child’ 🙂

Why Him? is directed and co-written by John Hamburg, the man  who wrote for I Love You, Man (2009) and Meet The Parents (2000).

James Franco in roles where he’s a little bit of an idiot but oh, so lovable are my favourite of his work. If you’ve seen and loved  Pineapple Express (2008) and  This Is The End (2013), I’m thinking you understand.

Why Him? Release Dates: December 25th, 2016 (US); January 6th, 2017 (UK); January 8th, 2017 (FR) January 12th, 2017 (GER)…

THE INFILTRATOR (2016): New Trailer From Bryan Cranston & John Leguizamo

In The Infiltrator, Breaking Bad star  Bryan Cranston is real life character Robert Mazur, an undercover US customs agent and Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene is where he must work unsuspected…

 

I imagine that fans of big hit TV show Breaking Bad will be very excited about this movie. If the pace and thrills are as fast and good as this trailer suggests, I’m hoping that myself and everyone else will have a good time too.

Directed by Brad Furman, Diane Kruger, Amy Ryan and John Leguizamo also star.

KUNG FU PANDA 3 (2016): For The Overwhelming Cuteness

I’m certain that children will find Kung Fu Panda 3 very entertaining indeed. Just as I’m sure that the movie has a lovely message about fulfilling your destiny, doing the right thing, family, friendship, etc. etc. I for one, watched Kung Fu Panda 3 in part for the humour. The story is good too but mostly, the cuteness of the animals was my biggest draw – and on that basis the movie delivered.

Bryan Cranston’s Li voice and the ‘egg laying out of fear’ joke/ sequence are also key highlights.

Jack Black, Bryan Cranson, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, J.K. Simmons Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan and Lucy Liu are among the stars.

Watch it for the reasons above.

KUNG FU PANDA 3 (2016): Fun New Trailer Starring Jack Black & Angelina Jolie

Just when I thought I’d have to wait until the next Minion movie for a serious overload of cuteness…

I’ve seen pandas in real life and let me say, yes they are very cute but pandas can also be incredibly boring! Sitting around and eating bamboo all day long. So… thank heavens for overactive imaginations – the result of which, in this case is the above really fun trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3.

I love that the Kung Fu Panda movies are about finding your true self as well as being funny and cute – something I’m always happy to get more of.

Jack Black, Lucy Liu, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Brian Cranston and Dustin Hoffman are providing just some of the key voices.
