Why Him? is the new ‘meet the parents’ comedy from James Franco, Bryan Cranston, Megan Mullally and Zoey Deutch…
Why Him? is directed and co-written by John Hamburg, a writer who also wrote for Paul Rudd and Jason Segel bromance classic, I Love You, Man (2009), Plus Ben Stiller’s Meet The Parents (2000).
James Franco in roles where he’s a little bit of an idiot, while also totally remaining lovable are my favourites of his work. If you’ve seen and loved Pineapple Express (2008) and This Is The End (2013), then chances are you know exactly what I mean.
Why Him? Release Dates: December 25th, 2016 (US); January 6th, 2017 (UK); January 8th, 2017 (FR) January 12th, 2017 (GER)…
Memoria is James Franco’s latest movie and it looks…
Creepy. Yes creepy is the word I was looking for. Eery probably fits too. Either way I’m interested. I’m interested because Memoria is a Palo Alto, California based story about a young man (Sam Dillon) trying to find his place in the world. It doesn’t help that he’s unsatisfied by his social group, has a dysfunctional family life and is having zero luck with the girl he likes.
I want to see how it ends because this trailer has captured my imagination, thanks in part to the rather relaxing music trailer music. I also really want the young man to make it through and win.
Thomas Mann, Teo Halm, Luna Blaise, Shauna Bloom and Bella cohen aslo star. Director credits go to Vladimir de Fontenay andNina Ljeti.
Sausage Party is the brand new comedy from Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and James Franco. It’s an animation comedy and the key characters are food…
Rogen’s previous movie, The Night Before (2015) proved to be more disappointing than anticipated. As such, my fingers are crossed with this new ‘food horror.’ The different personalities assigned to all food items is certainly an intriguing.
Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan; the film stars several Rogen regulars, including Michael Cera, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson. Salma Hayek, Edward Norton and Paul Rudd also lend their voices.
Written and directed by Garielle Demesteere, Yosemite is the latest drama starring James Franco. It’s set in 1985 and tells intertwining stories of three 5th grade friends…
I’m optimistic about this one because the story is intriguing and I like the atmosphere of the trailer; sometimes that’s all you need. Also, as a film fan, I feel like I have to watch at least one of James Farnco’s films that somehow features Palo Alto as a theme. The other one I’m thinking of (and there may be more) is called Palo Alto (2013).
Eat Pray Love had to be watched because I wanted to know the story of a person who chooses to drastically change their life because what they have no longer makes them happy.
Said woman (Liz), played by Julia Roberts, decides to embark on a three part journey, travelling from Italy to India then Bali in a period of twelve months. As you can imagine, she meets many interesting people en route.
If you’ve ever been to Italy or dreamt about going, you’ll love the first part of this movie. You’ll like it because it’ll remind you of what makes travelling great and particularly, all the things to adore about Italy. Those curious about what it can mean to be on a ‘spiritual journey’ will get the most out of part two.
Filipe, (Javier Bardem) and pretty much everything that comes out of his mouth is a personal highlight of the final part of this movie. I particularly like his response to Liz when she says ‘I am so sick of people telling me I need a man.‘
Watch it if you’re curious about what he says and the adventure such as the one liz chooses.
Despite the hackers, I’ve watched Seth Rogen and James Franco’s The Interview and had a great time. I particularly loved the scenes with Kim Jong-un (Randall Park) and his Korean accent.
Fans of the lead Actor’s (Rogen and Franco’s) long standing movie bromance are bound to be very happy indeed. Especially if they accept that Franco’s character is really supposed to be that dim. Otherwise, like myself at first, Franco’s Dave Skylark may seem a tad over the top.
Rogen, Franco, Park, Diana Bang and Lizzy Caplan all play their parts beautifully – along with some welcome surprise appearances from Franco and Rogen’s famous friends.
Having already paid the film my full attention and had fun, in true movie fan style, The Interview will now be one of those movies I have playing in the background (Instead of music), so I can pause whatever I’m doing, in order to re-watch my favourite scenes.
First the New York city premier of Seth Rogen and James Franco’s highly anticipated film, The Interview (2014) was cancelled. Now Sony confirms that the movie has been pulled from overall release, thanks to a threat of terror upon cinema goers from the hackers responsible for a cyber attack on Sony Pictures.
People are talking about how outrageous it is that Sony would bow down to threats of terror and what all this means for freedom of expression. It isn’t great, but the overall answer seems simple to me. I personally doubt that Sony had any plans to cancel release. that is until the top three cinema chains in the U.S. pulled out of showing the film at all.
Without the necessary distribution network in place, there isn’t really any choice. Maybe things would have been different if Sony had their own chain of cinemas.
As a massive movie fan and an advocate of the comedic work of Rogen and Franco, I’m certainly hugely disappointed. Somehow though, I get the feeling that this is not the end of The Interview. As Judd Apatow put it:
“This only guarantees that this movie will be seen by more people on earth than it would have before. Legally or illegally all will see it.”
