New Legal thriller Your Honor stars Bryan Cranston as a respected judge whose son is involved in a hit-and-run accident that leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices.

Hope Davis, Sofia Black-D’Elia and Isiah Whitlock Jr. are among the key cast.

I wonder if I’ll enjoy this more than I did Breaking Bad. One other relatively new crime/thriller that Your Honor brings to mind is the very highly rated and good Ozark.

Tony Curran, Hunter Doohan, Lilli Kay, Michael Stuhlbarg, Brittney Tamberg, Jock McKissic, David Maldonado, Keith Machekanyanga and Garrett Kruithof also star.

Your Honor Release Dates: December 2020 (US), Showtime…

THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN (2020): The Things I Liked…

Starring Bryan Cranston, Angelina Jolie, Helen Mirren and Sam Rockwell, I was drawn to Disney’s partly-animated adventure/comedy The One and Only Ivan, because I knew that the ending was going to be a happy one. What I didn’t know until I saw the movie is that The One and Only Ivan is based on a true story.

Set in a circus at the mall, at the heart of the film is Ivan, a gorilla who’s trying to piece together his past as he and his elephant friend Stella (Jolie) plan to escape from captivity. Though director Thea Sharrock’s movie is quite predictable, I found that I didn’t mind too much. Especially since my main motivation for watching the film was to see a bunch of animals get their happy ending. 

There’s no denying though, that a faster pace would have helped my enjoyment overall. And it did prove arduous watching the animals get excited about their initial plan to escape captivity. Particularly considering how clear it was to adult viewers just how dangerous an actual escape would be for Ivan and friends. Perhaps, since The One and Only Ivan is ultimately a movie for children, it may be that the futility of the initial escape plan wouldn’t be so obvious to a young audience; meaning those scenes wouldn’t prove as taxing as they did for me.

The good news is that even with the elements that bothered me, I’m glad I stuck with The One and Only Ivan, because of the happy ending I wanted. 

As for the question of whether I’d call The One and Only Ivan a great Disney film. NoYet it’s also not completely terrible. As such, if you’re curious enough, give it a chance. Just don’t leave your patience at the door. And remember, it is ultimately aimed at children.

I’m certainly not the biggest fan of circuses. As such, I’m glad it looks as though by the end, this movie will put a big smile on my face. Also, it has elephants!

THE UPSIDE (2017): New Trailer From Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, Nicole Kidman…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of The Upside (2017)


The Upside is a remake of French film The Intouchables (2011), the story of the relationship between a wealthy paraplegic and an unemployed man with a criminal record who’s hired to help him.

Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman star while Neil Burger directs…

There’s no denying it, The Intouchables  is a great movie and could have done without a remake. At the same time though, I think I may actually have fun seeing how different this remake is to the original. I could also be wrong about that last statement but I don’t mind finding out. Furthermore, I want to see what comedian Kevin Hart can do in a more dramatic role.

Julianna Margulies, Golshifteh Farahani, Tate Donovan and Aja Naomi King also star.

The Upside Release Dates: January 11th, 2019 (US & UK)…

Bryan Cranston and Jennifer Garner are the stars of Wakefield, the Robin Swicord written and directed movie about a man’s  nervous breakdown that causes him to leave his wife and live in his attic for several months…

The premise of this movie is just too perfectly intriguing to ignore. I can’t wait to find out how Cranston’s character got to such a desperate place.

Why Him? is the new ‘meet the parents’ comedy from James Franco, Bryan Cranston, Megan Mullally and Zoey Deutch…

Clean Trailer

Red Band Trailer – (I love this version because of Franco’s response to ‘ This is a 15 year-old child’ 🙂

Why Him? is directed and co-written by John Hamburg, the man  who wrote for I Love You, Man (2009) and Meet The Parents (2000).

James Franco in roles where he’s a little bit of an idiot but oh, so lovable are my favourite of his work. If you’ve seen and loved  Pineapple Express (2008) and  This Is The End (2013), I’m thinking you understand.

Why Him? Release Dates: December 25th, 2016 (US); January 6th, 2017 (UK); January 8th, 2017 (FR) January 12th, 2017 (GER)…

Keegan-Michael Key and Griffin Gluck also star.

In The Infiltrator, Breaking Bad star  Bryan Cranston is real life character Robert Mazur, an undercover US customs agent and Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene is where he must work unsuspected…

 

I imagine that fans of big hit TV show Breaking Bad will be very excited about this movie. If the pace and thrills are as fast and good as this trailer suggests, I’m hoping that myself and everyone else will have a good time too.

Directed by Brad Furman, Diane Kruger, Amy Ryan and John Leguizamo also star.

The Infiltrator Release Dates: July 15th, 2016 (US)…
