Only The Brave is based on the true story of the elite crew of firemen known as the Granite Mountain Hotshots from Prescott, Arizona. In June 2013 the men battled a wildfire in Yarnell, AZ that claimed the lives of 19 of their members. Directed by Joseph Kosinski; Josh Brolin, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller and Taylor Kitsch star…

The cast is reliable, the story interesting and that footage of a bear running whilst on fire is spectacular. My fingers are crossed that there’ll be more very impressive fire special effects in the finished movie.

Only The Brave Release Dates: September 22nd, 2017 (UK); October 20th, 2017 (US)…

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE (2017): New Trailer From Miles Teller, Hayley Bennett, Amy Schumer…

In Thank You For Your Service, the new war drama / biography starring Miles Teller and Hayley Bennett, a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq are struggling to integrate back into family and civilian life…

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is interesting and my two favourite war films – American Sniper (2014) and The Hurt Locker (2008) touch on the subject to a degree. In Thank You For Your Service, PTSD is the main focus and so I must watch. The other reason for me to watch is Teller because of his memorable work in Whiplash (2014). Also I’m curious about Bennett. I’ve seen her in a number of trailers but I’m yet to watch one of her movies.

Directed by Jason Hall; Joe Cole and Keisha Castle-Hughes also star.

Thank You For Your Service Release Dates: October 27th, 2017 (US)…

WAR DOGS (2016): New Trailer From Todd Phillips, Starring Jonah Hill & Miles Teller

Jonah Hill and Miles Teller’s new movie has a certain Wolf Of Wall Street (2013) and 21 Jump Street (2012) vibe. So if you loved those movies, chances are…

I wonder if this story would be as intriguing if it wasn’t based on real people. Namely David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli – the two young men who were hired to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan.

I’m really hoping that the characters in this movie are not as annoying as the trailer music. War Dogs is directed and co-writen by Todd Phillips of The Hangover (2009). So perhaps I ought to be more hopeful.

War Dogs Release Dates: August 19th, 2016 (US); August 26th, 2016 (UK); September 1st, 2016 (GER)…

THE DIVERGENT SERIES – ALLEGIANT (2016): New Trailer From Shailene Woodley & Theo James

I haven’t watched a single film in The Divergent Series. It’s likely that I won’t any time soon but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the execution of their latest trailer for Allegiant, the last instalment…

The music (a remix of ‘Tris’ by Ellie Golding) combined with the minimal dialogue and imagery is quite the audio visual experience.

For those really into the series… The Divergent Series: Allegiant Release Date(s): March 11th, 2016 (UK); March 18th, 2016 (US)…

FANTASTIC FOUR (2015): May The Movie Live Up To Its Name

How did I not feature the Fantastic Four trailer sooner? Slight super hero movie fatigue perhaps…

Whatever the answer, I’m doing it now because it is rather well done. My favourite moment being when Reed Richards/ Mr. Fantastic looks up and down to his right. Isn’t slow motion a beautiful thing?

With some of the most talented Actors of young Hollywood, Fantastic Four is an interesting super hero movie about – you guessed it, saving humanity. This new reboot is directed by Josh Trank and stars Miles Teller, Michael B Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.

Final Trailer…

I’ll be ready come the August (2015) release date.

Happy Fantastic Four 🙂

WHIPLASH (2014): Does Far More Than Help You Reconsider Jazz

Whiplash (2014), Miles Teller

Coaxing out such stellar performances from his lead Actors, writer/ director, Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash tells the story of a young gifted drummer (Miles Teller) on his journey to greatness.

Shot in just 19 days, Whiplash is brilliantly edited and focuses on the relationship between Teller’s musician and his hugely demanding instructor (J.K.Simmons).

Along with Teller’s finely realised portrayal, Simmons is an actor who had mainly been known to me for his comedic work in the great movie, I Love You Man (2009) and he does a great job as the cold and twisted instructor, Fletcher. So much so that he was blessed with the Best Supporting Actor Oscar.

Coming from a background in jazz drumming himself, Chazelle gives us a memorable film with a fantastic ending you really won’t want to miss. Thanks to Whiplash, I officially have an even greater respect for the creative talents of the one, Miles Teller and an increase in my appreciation of jazz. I said it!

THAT AWKWARD MOMENT (2014): The Good Things

The following are three of the best things about Zac Efron’s That Awkward Moment (2014). A story about twenty-something friends living and dating in New York. It’s definitely not a perfect movie – for reasons including, ironically, awkwardness. But these snippets of dialogue are indeed memorable. I’ve even found myself quoting one or two to friends.

1) ‘New York’s charm is that you’re surrounded by things you can’t have’. ‘New York’s charm is it makes you think you can have them’. 

Having been there myself and experienced the energy, I can confirm that both statements are true.

2) ‘Jason. You weren’t there for me. On a day when I really, really needed you. And being there for someone when they need you, that’s all relationships are, Jason. That’s all they are’

Delivered whilst perfectly composed and with all pauses mid-sentence only working to make the statement more impactful in the moment – regardless of how simple the idea and words may be.

3) ‘Guys, in High School I was voted as most likely to have the best eyes’ 

My favourite! This one line makes me giggle every single time.

Happy That Awkward Moment 🙂
