Four decades ago in Halloween (1978), Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) escaped a killing spree on Halloween night. Mike Myers, the man responsible is back and so comes the long awaited confrontation Laurie has been praying for.
Directed by David Gordon Green; Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Virginia Gardner and Toby Huss star…
Nostalgia, that’s why I’m drawn to this one. It also helps that slasher horror movies are not the kind that give me nightmares. My favourite moment in this trailer is the scene with the wardrobe door. Fingers, toes and everything are crossed for a very entertaining result.
Miles Robbins, Will Patton and Nick Castle also star.
Michael Shannon, Ron Perlman, Thomas lennon and Christina Hendricks are the stars of Pottersville, a Seth Henrikson directed comedy about a beloved local businessman who gets mistaken for the legendary Bigfoot. An international Bigfoot media spectacle soon follows along with a windfall of tourism dollars for his simple American town hit by hard times…
I’m not sure what to make of this one. Seems silly but I’m hoping in a good way because I’m looking forward to some amusement and the generally christmassy vibe this trailer seems to promise. Also I can’t help but think that this can’t be that bad since Michael Shannon’s in it, right?
Ian McShane, Judy Greer, Michael Torpey and Blake Perlman also star.
In Our Souls At Night, Jane Fonda and Robert Redford play a widow and widower who’ve lived next to each other for years. The pair have almost no relationship but that all changes when…
I haven’t seen Schoenaerts in a new movie for a while and I really want to. Thestory which intrigues me a little and Jane Fonda, I appreciate because of her great work in Grace & Frankie, Youth (2015). There’s also her interviews in The Hollywood Reporter Roundtables.
Directed by Ritesh Batra, Bruce Dern, Michael Love Toliver and Phyllis Somerville also star.
Directed and co-written by Janicza Bravo, Lemon is the story of a man whose life is unravelling after his girlfriend of 10 years suddenly leaves him. Michael Cera, Brett Gelman, Nia Long and Judy Greer star…
Even though Lemon s a drama, I’m kind of mainly tuning in for the comedy that’s due to come out of the peculiar characters in this trailer. I’m excited about the lovely Nia Long’s role and I want to see what Michael Cera will do since I haven’t seen him in many films for a while.
Gillian Jacobs, Jeff Garlin, Megan Mullally and Inger Tudor also star.
There’s a new War For The Planet of the Apestrailer and it looks really good. Starring Woody Harrelson, Andy Serkis and Ruby Rose, in this instalment Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans and massive losses are suffered all round…
Well done trailer maker! I actually want to forget about the other films in the franchise and just watch this. Only I know only too well just how unwise that is.
Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer and Laura Dern are the stars of Wilson, a Craig Johnson directed comedy about a middle aged misanthrope who gets the surprise of his life after reuniting with is estranged wife…
Based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, I want to see this because I rather enjoy Harrelson in comedy roles. His part in 2011’s Friends With Benefits is one of my favourites.
Starring Woody Harrelson, Andy Serkis and Ruby Rose, In War For The Planet of the Apes – the third movie in the franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans. A conflict that results in unimaginable losses and a most epic battle…
Since I haven’t yet watched the first two Planet Of The Apes movies, I’m sure that I’m missing something about why what happens in this teaser trailer is supposed to get fans audibly excited for more. The official trailer has since cleared that up.
Written and directed by Paul Weitz, Grandma is a comedy/ drama that follows a troubled, no nonsense grandmother played by Lily Tomlin, as she tries to help her teenage granddaughter with a time-sensitive personal crisis.
Also starring Nat Wolff, Judy Greer, Julia Garner and Marcia Gay Harden, I enjoyed this movie as a well written and acted production. A lot of the humour comes from Tomlin’s troubled and acerbic grandma character plus the encounters she has with people. People including her family, strangers and friends.
By the end, I found myself thinking about whether the so-called ‘great mother / daughter relationship’ is actually a myth. My conclusion is that nothing is perfect. Families face challenging times together and they make a decision to reach a resolution or not. Some people face bigger challenges than others which can make resolutions less likely.
Watch Grandma because it’s a good movie, well paced and it will make you grateful for everyone that has ever been there for you in your time of great need, including those you didn’t even know you needed until you had them there.
