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.
Sausage Party is the brand new comedy from Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and James Franco. It’s an animation comedy and the key characters are food…
I wasn’t a big fan of Rogen’s previous movie, The Night Before (2015). But my fingers are crossed with this new ‘food horror.’ The different personalities assigned to all food items is an intriguing thing.
Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan; the film stars several Rogen regulars, including Michael Cera, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson. Salma Hayek, Edward Norton and Paul Rudd also lend their voices.
I learnt today that two close friends of mine do not find Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s This Is The End (2013) funny. WHAT?! I know. After coming to terms with their revelation, I made an effort to understand by running through the possible explanations:
They hadn’t watched or enjoyed Pineapple Express (2008), Superbad (2007) Knocked Up (2007) or other great comedies by Rogen and Goldberg.
They must not have been in the right frame of mind to properly appreciate the greatness. I believe that you have to be ‘in the mood’ for certain kinds of films (comedy, drama, action, etcetera) to get the best out of them.
They were too tired to pay due attention.
Apparently none of the above explanations were correct, so I was left with the only possible answer. It’s clear. Something is very wrong with both of them. As such, trying to make sense of the situation would be a royal waste of time. And… I might need new friends.
What do you think? Did you find This Is The End funny? I’d like to think that there’s nothing wrong with you… 🙂
