August: Osage County looks very, very good. Meryl Streep + Julia Roberts + a bunch of other people you’ll recognize. Looks fabulous. Trailer below.
Just days after her release from a 90-day rehab stay, Linsday Lohan is guest-hosting Chelsea Lately. BRILLIANT MOVE. Guest host on the show that makes the most fun of you? GENIUS.
Based on the previews I’ve seen, Lohan appears healthy and is in good spirits.
I’m hesitant to get my hopes up again but maybe this really is her turning a corner. Preview clip here.
This looks really funny.
This line, from a review of the trailer on Pajiba.com, sums up where this film fits into the current movie release schedule quite well: “You never realize how much you miss a good dick joke until you’re berated for three months by robots, aliens, origin stories, and world destruction week after week after week.”
It stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner. You had me at Christine and Bradley.
Watch this trailer now. You’ll agree.
P.S. While I LOVE the Batman movies, I prefer Christian Bale when he’s not hard whispering in his role as the caped crusader. I bet he’s badass in this.
Comedic actress Eileen Brennan died yesterday and to in honor of her, here’s the trailer for one of my ALL-TIME favorite flicks, Clue.
One of the main reasons I started this blog is I wanted a platform to speak passionately and frequently about shows I love. Newsroom and Parenthood are the two that stick out in my mind.
Newsroom is surprisingly polarizing. Some people “hate watch” it and others love watching it. I’m in the latter camp.
I can’t imagine why anyone would hate watch it. Yes, sometimes it’s a little preachy but that doesn’t affect the entertainment value in my opinion. Some people just can’t stand Aaron Sorkin and his perceived ulterior agenda. Personally, I think the guy is the best writer in Hollywood. I could watch The Social Network and a Few Good Men on repeat.
At first, I wasn’t sure I would love the cast of this show. But I can’t see anyone else in any of these parts. Sure, Alison Pill can be irritating, but I actually find her mostly endearing now. I’ve already written about my love of Olivia Munn and Emily Mortimer so I’ll spare you a repeat diatribe. But from top to bottom, the cast is superb.
Great writing, great cast. I don’t care if you’re hate watching as long as you’re watching.
Since Comic Con went all mainstream, I’ve been dying to attend. Here are just a few reasons why…
