A remake of the 1996 film of the same name, new fantasy/horror movie The Craft follows Hannah (Cailee Spaeny) a newcomer to a Catholic prep high school who falls in with a trio of outcast teenage girls who practice witchcraft.

Also starring David Duchovny, Michelle Monaghan, Lovie Simone and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones; the girls soon conjure up various spells and curses against those who anger them.

Teenage me would be very excited about this. As for my non-teen self, I’m intrigued because this trailer isn’t bad (even though the wire work at 1:14 into the above edit seems questionable). I also I can’t remember much about the 1996 movie besides the fact that Neve Campbell is in it.

Just to be clear, I’m not a witch. OK, maybe that one time, for Halloween. I really just want to know more about the nature of their powers.

Zoey Luna, Gideon Adlon, Nicholas Galitzine, Charles Vandervaart, Donald MacLean Jr., Hannah Gordon, Julian Grey and Mike Dara also star.

The Craft Release Dates: October 28th, 2020 (US & UK)…

Written / directed by Shawn Christensen, The Vanishing Of Sidney Hall tells the story of a young writer who finds accidental success and unexpected love, then he disappears without a trace.

Logan Lerman, Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Blake Jenner and Michelle Monaghan star…

I’m in because of Lerman. I also appreciate a good mystery and this one looks quite promising.

In Sleepless, Jamie Foxx is a cop with criminal underworld connections and in search of his kidnapped son…

It’s a given that every movie that stars a parent searching for their kidnapped child will always make me think of Liam Neeson’s Taken (2008) – because it’s a great movie and one of my favourite movie experiences of all time. So much so that I kind wish that I had’t seen it yet so I could be thrilled afresh. I hope Sleepless is great.

Sleepless Release Dates: February 24th, 2017 (US)…

PIXELS (2015): For The Fans Of The Games…

Pixels is a  comedy/ action / sci-fi that’s directed by Chris Columbus and stars Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan and Peter Dinklage.

The first trailer for the movie didn’t look great. Though the second was an improvement, my conclusion after sitting through the movie is that I’m just not the target market.

I used to play Pac-Man growing up but never enough to call myself a half serious video gaming fan. It’s those who love and/or loved retro video games like Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Tetris, that will get the most out of Pixels. For everyone else, there are a few funny moments but, overall, ‘silly’ might be a word that comes to mind.

The best part in the movie besides the soundtrack and what the creator of Pac-Man, Toru Iwatani screams in the trailer? That would be the last twenty minutes of the film, particularly the Donkey Kong phase. Tune in if you absolutely must. I did because of I’m a fan of Gad, Sandler, Dinklage and Pac-Man.

Happy Film Loving 🙂

PIXELS (2015) Trailer 2, Definitely More Promising

In Pixels, starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage –  aliens have sent real life video games to end us by pixelation – and of course we must fight! Or at least the best players of each video game character  turned evil must.

The first trailer had me worried, but now…

…I badly want to see it work.

Happy Pixels 🙂
