Holmes & Watson is a Humorous version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mysteries featuring Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.
Directed by Etan Cohen; Holmes & Watson stars Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Ralph Fiennes, Rebecca Hall…
Looks like fun ridiculousness – just the kind of thing I’ll be in the mood for at some point, I know it! I find myself rather happy for Ferrell and Reilly because of how much fun it undoubtedly is to speak on those specific British accents.
Steve Coogan, Hugh Laurie, Kelly Macdonald, Lauren Lapkus and Noah Jupe also star.
Teen Spirit is the story of a shy teenager who dreams of leaving behind her small town life in exchange for pop stardom. Her chance finally arrives in the shape of an unlikely mentor, and a talent, integrity and ambition testing international singing competition.
Directed by Max Minghella; Elle Fanning, Rebecca Hall and Millie Brady star…
I’m curious about Elle Fanning’s British accent and I want to find out how much Teen Spirit will remind me of Beyond The Lights (2014), if at all.
Elizabeth Berrington, Zlatko Buric, Jordan Atephens and Archie Madekwe also star.
Written and directed by Brian Crano, Dan Stevens and Rebecca Hall star in Permission, a comedy drama abouta woman soon to be proposed to.
The same woman also listens to a friend who suggests that she should date other men before committing to forever with her her boyfriend…
The precise nature of my thoughts when I read the synopsis went something like: ‘Oooooh… this sure isn’t going to end well… probably.’ Nevertheless though, I’d still quite love to be surprised, for entertainment value purposes.
Gina Gershon, François Arnaud, Raúl Castillo, Michelle Hurst and Morgan Spector also star.
Written and directed by Angela Robinson, Professor Marston & The Wonder Women is the story of the unconventional life of Dr. William Marston; a Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and in 1941 created Wonder Woman…
Dr. Marston was intriguingly unconventional and seventy six years ago he created the character in 2017’s biggest blockbuster movie. So, of course I have to watch. Especially considering how very promising and interesting this trailer looks.
Lastly, how beautiful is the music in this trailer.
The idea of a movie based on Roald Dahl’s famous children’s bookThe BFG (Big Friendly Giant) had me excited because I vaguely recall enjoying the story as a child. Having now seen the Steven Spielberg directed film, it’s clear for me that this is one of those instances where the book may definitely be much better than the movie.
The lovely nostalgic walk down memory lane I’d been hoping for really isn’t what transpired here. My biggest issue with Spielberg’s film is the pace. I found the pace to be so incredibly slow, that at one point when the ‘bad giants’ were looking for a human child for their afternoon snack, I may have uttered the words ‘Just find her and eat her already, so that this massive let down can finally be over!’
Unfortunately for me, things didn’t get interesting and engaging until the part that takes place at the palace towards the end. Another positive is the narration at the very end.
Prior to this definitely disappointing The BFG experience, I’d actually been thinking about re-watching the Spielberg classic, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982). I’m no longer sure about that now.
The BFG has reminded me that sometimes re-living stories and/orre-watching films I loved as a child, especially if they were made with children as the target audience may result in those films not being well received by my now adult brain. One such example would be The Never Ending Story (1984). I really wouldn’t recommend revisiting that. I did and I ended up wishing that I’d let it remain as magical as my young brain remembered.
My main hope for The BFG is that children, the key target audience for the movie actually have a good time when they watch it. Should I finally muster the courage to re-visit E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, I’ll certainly share my thoughts on here. Until next time…
Directed by Antonio Campos and starring Rebecca Hall, Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts, Christine tells the story of Christine Chubbuck, a TV news reporter who killed herself during a live television broadcast…
As someone somewhat aware of this story but with no idea about Chubbuck’s motivations, I’m looking forward to finding out more about what was happening around if not within her around the time of her story’s end.
