Greg Berlanti directs Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel in Love, Simon; a new coming-of-age drama about the hilarious, scary, life-changing and complicated love story of a young closeted gay man…

As a friend pointed out, this movie may just be the first mainstream teen film where the central story is about the coming out of a young gay man. This isn’t a thing I’ve seen before. I could be wrong of course, but at this momment, I remember no other mainstream teenage movie with a gay male protagonist.

I’m curious enough to watch it because of this uniqueness and because Nick Robinson wasn’t terrible in Everything, Everything (2017).

Talitha Eliana Bateman, Katherine Langford and Keiynan Lonsdale also star.

Love, Simon Release Dates: March 16th, 2018 (US & UK)…

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.

DANNY COLLINS (2015): A Memorable Bobby Cannavale Performance…

Danny Collins is a well told story of a less than ideal father/ son relationship. This is of course not all that the movie is about but it’s the part that appealed to me the most. The film is moving, engaging and for want of a better phrase, a relaxing watch thanks to the well played characters and the healthy sprinklings of humour.

Directed by Dan Fogelman of Crazy Stupid Love (2011)Bobby Cannavale’s part as the ‘abandoned son’ of a rockstar father is one of my favourites of his roles. Al Pacino is, as always very watchable,  as is Christopher Plummer and my dear ‘Lady Bening’. That’s Annette Bening to everyone else. I also really appreciated Jennifer Garner’s performance as the ‘very good wife.’

Since Pacino is a musician in this role, is the music any good..?, you may wonder. It’s by no means  a key reason for tuning in; though it isn’t completely terrible either. Watch it for the charm, humour, the story of a difficult father/ son relationship and that of an ageing rocker on a mission to change his life for the better.

In the latest film directed by Barry Sonnenfeld of the 1997 and 2002 Men In Black movies, we have Kevin Spacey playing a businessman trapped in the body of his family cat…

Trailer 2

First Keanu (2016) and now Nine Lives, it looks this might be the year of the Hollywood movie star cats.

Also starring Robbie Amell, Jennifer Garner, Christopher Walken, Cheryl Hines and Mark Consuelos, the premise of Nine Lives is of course nuts. I’m still hoping to be very pleasantly surprised nonetheless. First because it’s Kevin Spacey; second, Christopher Walken and last but not least, I like the way the words ‘Just drown me’ are delivered in this trailer.

Bring on the good voice work and amusing dialogue for I am ready!

For the cat lovers of the world, if I had to guess I’d say that the gorgeous Mr Fuzzy Pants belongs to the Birman cat variety, a very popular type of cat.

Nine Lives Release Date(s): August 5th, 2016 (US & UK)…

Annette Bening, Al Pacino, Christopher Plummer, Bobby Cannavale… It’s hard not to adore all of them – and unsurprisingly, they star in some of the best films ever made.

Today however, it’s all about Danny Collins (2015). As per the following trailer, the signs are really good.

Happy Danny Collins 🙂
