Directed by Sebastián Lelio, Gloria Bell follows Gloria, a free-spirited woman in her 50s who’s seeking out love at L.A. dance clubs.
With a talented cast that includes Julianne Moore, John Turturro, Jeanne Tripplehorn, and Michael Cera; Gloria Bell is an English language version of the Chilean movie Gloria (2013) – which was also directed by Lelio.
I wonder what things he did differently this time around – besides the location…
I’m a Moore fan, the story is interesting and the film will feature my first name being mentioned a notable number of times. What’s not to get excited about?
Obi Nwankwo, Alanna Ubach, Brad Garrett, Sean Astin, Holland Taylor, Rita Wilson and Sean Astin also star.
Starring Salma HayekEugenio Derbez and Rob Lowe, How To Be Latin Lover is a movie I watched because I adore Salma Hayek, I was curious about Eugenio Derbez and the trailer amused me.
How To Be A Latin Lover centres around Derbez’s character – Maximo; a man who’s forged a career out of seducing rich older women. Unfortunately for him, however, his 25 year marriage just ended and with nowhere else to go, he finds himself living with his estranged sister.
Quite early in the movie, I realised precisely how the story was going to go. A lot of what I realised could have been guessed during the trailer; only, I was far too busy being amused. I stayed with the movie until the end because of the reasons I already mentioned – but additionally, I happened to be in the mood for a film that didn’t require too much from me. The often silly humour was OK. Though, the ending did seem to come about quite abruptly – and in a way I wasn’t fully expecting. Overall, I can say I regret nothing because I knew what I’d signed up for. My love of Hayek remains and Derbez… He’s OK.
I can’t say that I picture myself telling people ‘you simply must see this,’ but I do see myself at some point in the future, referencing the scene in the trailer with the shoe dye and the pool.
Aaron Sorkin, a Hollywood name most film lovers know purely for his great screenwriting abilities has directed an exciting looking drama. Starring Idris Elba, Jessica Chastain, Michael Cera and Kevin Costner, Molly’s Game is a true story about an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game and became an FBI target…
I’m excited for reasons including the fact that I really enjoy Aaron Sorkin’s writing. As such, I’m hoping that his directing will be great too. The paring of Elba and Chastain is one I didn’t know I wanted to see until I just saw it. Fingers crossed that this movie turns out really well.
Chris O’Dowd, Rachel Skarsten and Bill Camp 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.
Person To person is a new drama featuring various New York City based characters as they navigate personal relationships and unexpected problems over the course of a day. Written and directed by Dustin Guy Defa; Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson plus Michaela Watkins are just three of the stars…
I’m curious about this because of Michael Cera, the seemingly quirky characters, the fact that it’s set in New York (a city I miss) but also because it reminds me of a 2015 comedy I loved called People Places Things.
Starring Salma Hayek, Rob Lowe, Michael Cera and Eugenio Derbez, How To Be A Latin Lover is a Ken Marino directed comedy about a man who made a career of seducing rich older women. However, he now finds himself living with his estranged sister after his 25 year marriage ends…
I’ll mainly be tuning in in hopes of good humour and because of my general love for Salma Hayek.
McKenna Grace, Kristen Bell and Raphael Alejandro also star.
Finding out the truth about one’s existence isn’t just a journey important for humans. Frank the sausage from Shopwell’s supermarket has heard some extremely disturbing news about what happens after he and his fellow food product friends are chosen and taken out of Shopwell’s and into ‘the great beyond.’ So begins the mad food horror / comedy / adventure that is Sausage Party, the latest from writing partners Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Starring Rogen, Michael Cera, Kristen Wiig, Nick Kroll, Jonah Hill, and many more, I found Sausage Party entertaining and definitely filthy. It’s the clever and well written wordplay that makes the comedy. The film’s general look and animation style is another personal highlight. I particularly love the walks of Teresa Del Taco and Frank’s girlfriend Brenda. Yes, we’re talking about animation here but the sexiness is really, undeniable. Then there’s the villainous Douche who is nicely played by Nick Kroll (probably my favourite of his roles, ever).
There’s no writing about Sausage Party without mentioning the, let’s say… ‘good times’ that happen towards the very end. WOW! That’s a great word for it.
After thinking a few times, ‘How on earth are they going to end this?’as the movie played, I’m not mad at what actually happens at the very end – because how else could they have wrapped it up, really? Especially since food is ultimately for eating, potatoes need peeling and no one should ever take ill treatment.
In terms of the things I was at odds with, Sausage Party features some commentary on religion that feels a little odd and out of place. However, at the same time it makes some sense for a world where food both talks and thinks. Nevertheless, it still didn’t quite fit somehow.
Watch this moviefor the smartly written filthy, fun dialogue and the general madness of it all.
Fans of Batman, especially Batman from the Lego Movie (2014) will be very happy about today’s trailer…
Comic Con Trailer
Directed by Chris McKay; the movie stars Will Arnett, Mariah Carey, Zach Galifianakis, Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera and Ralph Fiennes. I’m sure there’ll be no surprise about what to expect plot-wise, of course. Though, it’s really the humour I’m most interested in.
