All The Money In The World is the story of a left-wing paramilitary organization in Italy, that hatched a massive kidnapping plot in the 1970s. Directed by Ridley Scott; Christopher Plummer, Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams and Timothy Hutton star…

To save one’s grandson and let the world know that you negotiate with terrorists or sacrifice your grandson so that no one ever thinks that they can demand and receive a ransom from you ever again.

Whatever Mr. Getty does or doesn’t do, it should be very interesting to watch, especially with such a talented and super engaging cast.

All The Money In The World Release Dates: December 22nd, 2017 (US); January 5th, 2018 (UK)…

Rebel In The Rye tells the story of celebrated author, J.D. Salinger, the man responsible for one of the most widely loved books ever written, The Catcher In The Rye. Directed by Danny Strong; Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Spacey, Sarah Poulson and Zoey Deutch star…

The Catcher In The Rye happens to be one of my favourite books. I’ve read somewhere that it’s also incredibly difficult if not near impossible to turn into a movie. As such, I guess fans have to settle for a movie about the the films writer and the events that lead to his most famous book.

I’d happily watch this movie right now if I could. Especially since I recall what happens in The Catcher In The Rye, only vaguely at this point.

Victor Garber and Lucy Boynton also star.

Rebel In The Rye Release Dates: September 15th, 2017 (US)…

Starring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lilly James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and directed by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver is the new action / crime / thriller about a young getaway driver who has been coerced into taking part in a heist job that’s doomed to fail….

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 1

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)…

ELVIS & NIXON (2016): New Trailer Starring Kevin Spacey & Michael Shannon

I saw the names Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon which led me to immediately watching the new trailer for the Liza Johnson directed comedy,  Elvis & Nixon…

In terms of the casting, at first I thought, ‘What? Michael Shannon? As Elvis?’ But then I finished watching the trailer…

Shannon certainly doesn’t bear much of a facial resemblance to Elvis Presley but it does look like he’s succeeded in all the other key areas. I say this having not heard him sing. In fact, I’m not even sure that he’ll sing at all in the film. I’ll be watching for the comedy and the two lead actors.

Evan Peters, Colin Hanks and Alex Pettyfer also star.

Elvis & Nixon Release Date (s): April 2016 (UK)…

AMERICAN BEAUTY (1999): Forever Brilliant

For every film lover, there’s at least one or two – perhaps even three films that come immediately to mind whenever they‘re asked that inevitable question. ‘What’s your favourite film?’

My answer is always without hesitation, Director Sam Mendes’ 1999 Oscar winning film debut, American Beauty.

I’m yet to watch another film more perfect. Such a beautifully crafted story with excellent dialogue, symbolism and a healthy dose of truth and black humour.

It’s a brilliant commentary on suburbia and life in the classic American small town. American Beauty offers plenty of potentially useful information about the human condition.

There’s a strong theme on the difference between what people work hard to project versus the actual truth. The most interesting version of this is the exterior proclamations of the person who internally actually hates themselves.

As a result of this film, Annette Bening, Kevin Spacey, Chris Cooper, Writer Alan Ball, Director Sam Mendes and more, including the great Cinematographer Conrad L. Hall are forever in my mind, synonymous with brilliance.

I know one person who called American Beauty boring. Not quite sure what to say to that. Except maybe that it’s unlikely they actually really watched it.

Happy American Beauty, my favourite film. 🙂
