Directed by Timothy Greenberg, Living With Yourself stars Paul Rudd, Aisling Bea and Desmin Borges in an intriguing comedy series.

It’s the story of a man who undergoes an experimental treatment to improve his life… but with unexpected consequences…

The most intriguing premise I’ve seen in a while. I’m thinking cloning but who knows. Im interested in where this goes and of course in Rudds performance. or should I say performances?

Karen Pittman, Zoe Chao, Joseph Bessette, Rob Yang, Eden Malyn, Gopal Lalwani and Emily Young also star.

Living With Yourself Release Dates: October 18th, 2019 (US), Internet / Netflix…

The Catcher Was A Spy is the story of a man in the midst of a double life; working both as a major league baseball player and a spy…

Directed by Ben Lewin; Paul Rudd, Connie Nielsen, Mark Strong and Sienna Miller star…

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t yet encountered a serious, non-comedic Paul Rudd movie that has me excited enough to see it; so deep is my appreciation of his comedic work. Unlike Steve Carell and a few other actors known first for comedy, I’m just finding it hard to make the shift from a funny Rudd to a serious Rudd. I think it’s going to take a film I simply can’t ignore for me to transition. Will The Catcher Was A Spy be that movie? I’m not quite sure yet but I wish.

Guy Pearce, Connie Nielsen, Jeff Daniels, Hiroyuki Sanada and Shea Whigham also star

The Catcher Was A Spy Release Dates: June 22nd, 2018 (US)…

MUTE (2018): New Trailer From Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux…

Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux are the stars of Mute, a Duncan Jones directed mystery / sci-fi / thriller about a mute bartender (Skarsgård) who goes up against his city’s gangsters to find out what happened to his missing girlfriend, the love of his life…

The futuristic setting and the resultant visuals are why I’m most interested. Paul Rudd playing a character who doesn’t appear to be sweet and adorable intrigues me. Then there’s Alexander Skårsgard – for reasons including the emotional range he’s likely to achieve in this role (since he can’t speak) and his impressive stature.

Noel Clarke, Nikki Lamborn, Seyneb Saleh and Gilbert Owuor  also star.

Mute Release Dates: February 23rd, 2018 (US)…

In Ant-Man & The Wasp, Scott Lang, a.k.a, Ant-Man must balance being both a Super Hero and a father, when he’s presented with an urgent new mission that pairs him alongside The Wasp.

Directed by Peyton Reed; Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas and Walton Goggins star…

I haven’t seen the first Ant-Man movie yet. This is true for no good reason except it hasn’t yet screamed out for me to watch it. The Ant-Man concept is different enough from other superhero movies that I really should have been drawn to it already. I have been craving difference after all. Having dug deep, I think the problem has to be my likely inability to imagine an ant as cool. Yep… I said it.

I’m definitely a little more likely to watch the original movie, now that I’ve seen the skyscraper shrinking trick at 0:30 seconds in the above trailer.

Ant-Man & The wasp Release Dates: July 6th, 2018 (US); August 3rd, 2018 (UK)…

Sausage Party is the brand new comedy from Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and James Franco. It’s an animation comedy and the key characters are food…

I wasn’t a big fan of Rogen’s previous movie, The Night Before (2015). But my fingers are crossed with this new ‘food horror.’ The different personalities assigned to all food items is an intriguing thing.

Directed by  Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan; the film stars several Rogen regulars, including Michael Cera, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson. Salma Hayek, Edward Norton and Paul Rudd also lend their voices.

Sausage Party Release Dates: August 12th, 2016 (US & UK), August 18th, 2016 (GER), September 14th (FR)…

ANT-MAN (2015): Yes. I Will Believe In Paul Rudd

Ant-Man is possibly the most uncool superhero name out there. I say this whilst being completely unfamiliar with pretty much all comic books.

Since it is Marvel, I’m hoping very much that I’m proven more wrong than ever before. Please, the powers that be…

See the teaser trailer for yourself…

What do you think? I’ll watch because I enjoy the work of Paul Rudd. Also, how young does Michael Douglas look in the preview?

Happy Ant-Man 🙂

SETH ROGEN’S This Is The End (2013). Funny? YES!

I learned today that two close friends of mine do not find Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s This Is The End (2013) particularly funny. After getting over the initial shock and coming to terms with their revelation, I made an effort to understand by running through the possible reasonable explanations:

  1. They haven’t watched or enjoyed Pineapple Express (2008), Superbad (2007) Knocked Up (2007) or other great comedies by Rogen and Goldberg.
  2. They must not have been in the right frame of mind to properly appreciate the greatness of the movie. I mean, I do believe that you have to be ‘in the mood’ for certain kinds of films (comedy, drama, action, etc.) in order to get the best out of them.
  3. They were too tired to pay due attention.

Well, apparently none of the above explanations were correct. I was therefore left with the only possible answer. Something is very wrong with both my friends, which then means that trying to make further sense of the situation would be a royal waste of my time.

In passing the question off to you, what do you think? Did you find This Is The End funny or am I the crazy one. Caveat: I know I’m not really crazy since the film was quite the success. However, I thought it would be nice to ask, nonetheless.
