Luke Wilson and Olivia Wilde are the stars of the new movie from Kill Your Darlings (2013) director, Reed Morano…

Meadowland follows the struggle of two individuals and how they’re affected by an unimaginable loss.

I’ll be watching for the interesting subject matter and also because of Giovanni Ribisi, Elizabeth Moss, John Leguizamo and Olivia Wilde. Great trailer music and editing. Just not a fan of the textual interruptions.

Juno Temple and Kevin Corrigan also star.

Release Date (s): October 16th, 2015 (US).

Happy Film Loving  🙂

RESULTS (2015): For An Unconventional Experience…

Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders, Giovanni Ribisi and Kevin Corrigan are the stars of Results, a rather weird comedy written/ directed by Andrew Bujalski.

When I say weird, I’m referring to the characters and the unconventional way the story is told. In which case, weird isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

One of the most interesting things about Results, besides what’s going on with Giovanni Ribisi’s hair would have to be what each of the actors brings to their roles. Specifically their portrayals of individuals who seem rather lost.

Bujalski’s film definitely had me somewhat lost and wondering what is this film really about, what on earth was going on with this story? With that said, if you’re after consistency in tone, a more traditional tale of romance and a laugh out loud comedy, you’re not really going to find that in Results. 

I saw the movie because I like all the actors involved. So watch it for a different type of movie-making style that’s unconventional and peculiar and/ or if you too, love the cast

Happy Results 🙂

SNEAKY PETE (2015): Giovanni Ribisi In Dramatic Ex-Felon Role

You may be surprised to learn that in Amazon Video’s latest TV movie trailer, Giovanni Ribisi is playing an ex-felon.

My favourite of the characters Ribisi has played in the past all happen to be in comedies. There’s his portrayal of Frank Buffay Jr. – Phoebe’s younger brother in hit TV sitcom Friends. More recently you can watch him as the creepy moustachioed dad character in Seth MacFarlane’s Ted (2012) and as the somewhat dim-witted Edward in A Million Ways To Die In The West (2014), also from MacFarlane.

Sneaky Pete is directed by David Shore and features a supporting cast that includes Marin Ireland, Margo Martindale, Shane McRae and Bryan Cranston. It would be great to see Ribisi in a new light, so fingers crossed that we won’t want to forget that this particular role ever happened.

Available 7th August on Amazon

Happy Sneaky Pete 🙂

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 🙂
