THE HIGHWAYMEN (2018): The Thing I Liked…

The Highwaymen, the story of the two police officers who came out of retirement to catch infamous bank robbing outlaws Bonnie & Clyde is a movie I don’t regret watching.

The reason I watched the film at all was my curiosity about the retelling of the famous Bonnie and Clyde story from the perspective of the officers who ended their bank robbing and killing spree. That along with my general appreciation of both Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson’s talents. In fact the dynamic between Costner and Harrelson is my favourite thing about director John Lee Hancock’s movie. I also enjoyed the exchanges between the highwaymen and other law enforcement officers.

In terms of the thing or two that I enjoyed less about The Highwaymen, I wish it had moved a little faster and/ or contained  a tad more excitement. At the same time though, considering the fact that the two highwaymen had just come out of retirement, I may have been asking for a little too much.

Watch it if you’re really curious. Just don’t be surprised if you  find yourself getting distracted quite easily.

THE HIGHWAYMEN (2019): New Trailer From Kevin Costner, Woody Harrelson, Kathy Bates…

In new crime / drama The Highwaymen, Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson are two police officers who have come out of retirement to catch infamous bank robbing outlaws Bonnie & Clyde.

Directed by John Lee Hancock; additional key cast includes Kathy Bates, Thomas Mann, Kim Dickens, John Carroll Lynch…

I haven’t watched a Bonnie & Clyde movie for a long time and I definitely don’t remember the story focusing mainly on the officers trying to catch the outlaws. As such, I’m rather looking forward to this seemingly fresh perspective.

I also didn’t realise I’d missed seeing Kevin Costner in a movie until I saw him here. How can I not miss him when I loved his character in Hidden Figures (2016) so much?

W. Earl Brown, David Furr, and Brian F. Durkin also star.

The Highwaymen Release Dates: March 29th, 2019 (US)…

LBJ (2017): New Trailer From Woody Harrelson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, C. Thomas Howell, Bill Pullman…

In LBJ, Woody Harrelson stars as the President of the United States of America. Directed by Rob Reiner, the drama / biography tells the true story of Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) – from his young days in West Texas to his time in the White House…

I want to see this so I can marvel at the seemingly great prosthetics on Harrelson’s face. I’m also curious about the story since it’s, in a way the other version of events that we didn’t get to see in Jackie (2016).

At this moment in time however, I may  need a break from movies set at The White House. You see, I’m half way through season three of House Of Cards and my goodness is it dark and intense!

LBJ Release Dates: November 3rd, 2017 (US)…

THE GLASS CASTLE (2017): New Trailer From Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, Naomi Watts…

The perfectly titled The Glass Castle stars Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts. Written and directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, the story centres around a young girl’s coming of age in a poor, dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads…

The subject matter, this trailer and the actors have me so interested in this movie. Stories about parent / offspring relationships especially once the children are grown up are always interesting to me. Also, what wonderful roles these are for all the actors involved.

Max Greenfield and Sarah Snook also star.

The Glass Castle release Dates: August 11th, 2017 (US)…

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI (2017): New Trailer Starring Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell…

The trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri may start slow but it only gets better and better, so stick with it. Starring Woody Harrelson, Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Caleb Landry Jones, this one is a dark comedy from the writer / director of  the rather memorable In Bruges (2008) – Martin McDonagh. The story of  Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri centres around a mother who takes matters into her own hands with her local law enforcement representatives, after progress stalls in her daughter’s murder investigation…

Wasn’t that a good one? I forgot how much a fan of Frances McDormand’s work I am.

Lucas Hedges, John Hawkes, Peter Dinklage and Abbie Cornish also star.

Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer and Laura Dern are the stars of Wilson, a Craig Johnson directed comedy about a middle aged misanthrope who gets the surprise of his life after reuniting with is estranged wife…

Based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, I want to see this because I rather enjoy Harrelson in comedy roles. His part in 2011’s Friends With Benefits is one of my favourites.

Cheryl Hines and Margo Martindale also star.

Wilson Release Dates: March 24th, 2017 (US)…
