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.
