Enigmatic, complex and badass; three words synonymous with Marvel’s latest superhero movie character Venom, the lethal protector.

I expect that this one will be at the very least good because of two things, Tom Hardy and Marvel

Woody Harrelson, Tom holland and Jenny Slate also star.

DEAN (2017): The Thing I Liked…

Dean, a drama / comedy about loss, grief and the redemptive power of love is a movie that fell a tad short of my expectations. I was initially drawn to it, in part because of the humour in the trailer but I found the film to be more dramatic than funny.

The beginning proved quite slow moving and by the halfway point, I cared more about what happened to the supporting characters than I did about the main character played by Demetri Martin. I also found the music that seemed to literally communicate characters’ feelings a tad annoying.

The illustrations that conveyed Dean’s emotions were a nice touch but even with them included, it wasn’t really until the plane scene towards the end that something somewhat memorable happened. Thanks in part to the way the incessant talker character was played.

As for Reid Scott’s role, he did well, but of course his Dan Egan character on HBO’s VEEP is far superior. What did the film really have to say about loss, grief and redemption? Exactly what you think it did.

Watch this if you absolutely must. I was about to add ‘You’re welcome.’ But that’s definitely too much, isn’t it? It’s too much. I’ll stop.

HOME AGAIN (2017): New Trailer From Reese Witherspoon, Michael Sheen, Nat Wolff, Candace Bergman…

Home Again (2017), Reece Witherspoon

In Reese Witherspoon’s latest movie, she plays a single mom in Los Angeles who allows three young guys to move in with her and things take an unexpected turn. Written and directed by Hallie Meyers-Shyer; Michael Sheen, Candace Bergman, Pico Alexander, NatWolff and Alex Alcheh also star…

I just really want to see this because I like Reece Witherspoon and it would be good to see her in a more fun(ish) movie, this one being a comedy / drama / romance.

Home Again Release Dates: September 8th, 2017 (US); September 29th, 2017 (UK)…

Written / directed by and starring Demetri Martin, Dean is a comedy about loss, grief and the redemptive power of love. It  also stars Gillian Jacobs, Kevin Kline, Kathrine Barnes, Reid Scott…

This movie intrigues me for three reasons. The first is the promise of humour, the second is how the illustrations fit into the film. Last but not least, as a massive fan of the HBO comedy series VEEP, I think I’m going to enjoy Reid Scott in a different role. Granted that his role in this movie appears to be relatively small, I’m still looking forward to seeing what else he can do in addition to  playing ‘Dan Egan’ so very well.

Dean Release Dates: June 2nd, 2017 (US)…
