In new drama / comedy Elsewhere, Bruno (Ray Abruzzo) is hopelessly attached to the seaside cottage he and his late wife built together. After his in-laws evict him, Bruno vows to get it back at any price.

 Written / directed by Hernan Jimenez; additional key cast features Ken Jeong, Marc Bendavid, Parker Posey, Beau Bridges…

This kind of seems like a good ‘new beginnings’ type of film. Intrigued to see Jeong in a seemingly non-comedy role.

I’m likely over-thinking it but…. what if his in-laws allowed the new tenant to move in while knowing full well that their former son-in-law would very likely fall in love with her?

Candus Churchill, C. Ernst Harth, Susan Hogan, Scott Hylands, Holly James, Kathleen Munroe, Kathleen Munroe, Parker Posey, Paula Shaw, Andy Thompson, Jackie Tohn and Mel Tuck also star.

Elsewhere Release Dates: January 24th, 2020 (UK)…

MASCOTS (2016): Funny…

As the trailer promised, Mascots has a healthy serving of quirky and entertaining characters. A very special selection of unusual people gathered in one place for the 8th World Mascot Association Championships; a sports mascot competition in which the very best sports mascots compete for the ‘Golden Fluffy Award’.

I’m one of those people who stopped watching television talent programmes because I could no longer take all the seemingly forced and inauthentic sob stories. I also decided that life’s not long enough for me to be ok with sitting through the numerous delusional performer’s unbearably cringeworthy interactions with the judges. Luckily for me, there’s none of that nonsense in Mascots.

I loved the humour and the stories of people unapologetically being their – often very peculiar selves. Sid The Hedgehog (Tom Bennett) and Alvin The Armadillo (Parker Posey) are my two favourites.

Mascots is perfect for a relaxed evening’s viewing. I spent most of the time smiling rather than laughing but in this instance, that’s not a bad thing. I like the shooting style which towards the end really had me feeling as though I were right there in the venue audience.

I’m not quite sure if Mascots is based on a real sports mascot competition of this kind but if someone had tickets, I wouldn’t be so quick to say no.

Written/ directed by Christopher Guest and also starring Chris O’Dowd,  Zach Woods, Sarah Baker and Jane Lynch, watch it because the characters are ‘unhinged’, in a good way.

MASCOTS (2016): New Trailer From Chris O’Dowd, Jane Lynch, Parker Posey…

Chris O’Dowd, Jane Lynch and Parker Posey are some of the comedy stars of co-writer and director Christopher Guest’s latest movie, Mascots. A comedy focused on the very competitive world of sports mascots? Of course there are a bunch of entertaining, kooky, quirky and very colourful characters…

I already find myself laughing each time I look at Jane Lynch’s face in the above main photo. So bring on the madness, I say!

Fred Willard, Oscar Nunez, Sandra Rosko and John Michael Higgins make up more of the talented funny men and women.

Woody Allen, writer and director of one of my favourite films Blue Jasmine (2013) is back. Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Blake Lively are the stars of Café Society, a movie set in the 1930s about a young man who moves to live and work in Hollywood…

Having just recently watched the unfortunate disappointment that is Hail, Caesar! (2016), I don’t know about another movie about Hollywood from way back when. I may end up liking this. One can only wait and see.

Café Society Release Dates: May 11th, 2016 (FR); August 12th, 2016 (US)…
