BRAD’S STATUS (2017): Good…

Directed by Mike White and featuring notable performances from all the cast, especially Ben Stiller (Brad) and Austin Abrams, Brad’s Status is a good and moving comedy. One about a 47 year-old man caught up with feeling inferior about his life choices. Particularly when he compares himself to his seemingly far more successful friends.

I’m quite sure that watching this movie is going to put you through a mixture of emotions. You’ll laugh, smile, be moved – and it’s likely that you’ll probably find yourself thinking, if not saying out loud: ‘Come on, Brad! you’re not seeing what’s right in front of you! If you’d only look and see!’

As frustrating as Brad’s attitude and behaviour may get at times, because many of us can relate to getting caught up with the perils of comparison, you’re going to want the best for Brad. And this is a small part of the reason you’ll continue to watch until the end. You’ll stick with it even though that jarring music at the beginning may have come close to forcing you to hit the stop button.

Watch Brad’s Status because the story and performances are worthy.

THE 15:17 TRAIN TO PARIS (2018): New Trailer For Clint Eastwood Movie…

Directed by Clint Eastwood, The 15:17 Train To Paris is the true story of American soldiers who discover a terrorist plot on a Paris-bound train and take action.

Anthony Sadler,  Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone – the actual real life heroes play themselves…

I usually have a good feeling after watching the trailer for a movie directed by Clint Eastwood. I can’t say that I feel great after watching this one.

Before my seemingly massive reservations came to the fore, my first thought as the trailer played was that it might be too soon for me to watch this. Also, I just travelled on the Eurostar about a month ago. Granted that it was, thankfully,  a perfectly uneventful journey, if I were to board a high speed train tomorrow, I have an over-active imagination so I’d most likely be quite nervous.

Judy Greer, Jenna Fischer and  Ray Corasani also star.

The 15:17 Train To Paris Release Dates: February 9th, 2018 (US & UK)…
