Two of my favorite young actors out there right now are Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Elijah Wood. I talked a little about JGL in my look at his new movie ‘Don Jon’. Now with Elijah’s new movie I get to gush over his talent for a minute.

People have been talking about this movie and I have been waiting to get a glimpse of the trailer. I’d seen a short clip of the film somewhere but nothing to really dig into. Finally the full trailer is out and it is good. The quick official description of the movie: (more…)

What happens when a small time pot dealer is asked to smuggle some weed across the Mexican/American boarder? He obviously creates a fake family to go with him and drive the product over the border. Who does he get to be his fake family? His next door neighbor who is a stripper, kid who happens to be his friend and some random street girl.

There are a few end of the world movies coming out this year. This is the first to hit screens near you. Opening June 7th, Rapture-Palooza has some class A comedic talent; Anna Kendrick, Ken Jeong, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, John Francis Daley (I loved him in ‘Waiting…’), and Tom Lennon for starters. Plus it is written by Chris Matheson. The same man who brought us ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’, ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey’, and the wonderful Jon Lovitz/Jeffrey Jones comedic vehicle ‘Mom and Dad Save the World’.

I’m going to check this one out. (more…)

About Time

This one is a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey… stuff. The lead finds out that he comes from a long line of men who can travel within their own life and set right what once went wrong. Along with a hologram nam… er… wait… I am getting my time travel flipped around. All I know is when we hit 88 miles per hour, we will see some serious sh*t.

Back to this movie. (more…)

Irony Abounds In My Head

 

#MusicMonday

#MusicMonday

Let me explain. No, that will take too long. Let me sum up. It has been raining for the last couple days and it doesn’t look to clear up anytime soon. Yet I have had this song stuck in my head all weekend. Must be a case of mind over matter. Whatever it is, this is just a catchy song that always puts a smile on my face!

Walken on Sunshine

And so does the image I have included.

Happy Monday everyone!!!

Inside Llewyn Davis

 

I can’t say it much better than the official production description:

Oscar Isaac in 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

Oscar Isaac in ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’

“’Inside Llewyn Davis’ follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles; some of them of his own making.”

If you are a fan of Joel Coen and Ethan Coen you won’t miss this one. I know I love the Coen’s vast array of movies and am looking forward to see how Justin Timberlake’s beard plays in this one. The beard surfaces in December of this year.

 

 

 

The Brass Teapot

 

Here is the official plot synopsis for this one:

Juno Temple & Michael Angarano in 'The Brass Teapot'

Juno Temple & Michael Angarano in ‘The Brass Teapot’

“The Brass Teapot feature film is a supernatural comedy starring Juno Temple and Michael Angarano, based on the comic book series about a broke, mid-twenty year old couple who, in these difficult economic times, find a mysterious and magical brass teapot which gives them money every time they (or others) are hurt near it. After realizing the teapot’s powers, John and Alice must decide how far they will go to fulfill their dream.”

Like I said before, I like originality, and this seems pretty original. It is based off of a comic which is based on a short story. Both the comic and the short story are written by Tim Macy and Ramaa Mosley… who just happen to be the writer and director (respectively) of this movie. What a kawinkydink.

Throw in the acting talents of Juno Temple and Michael Angarano and this looks like a hoot. The film had a limited release already so be on the lookout for a wider release or coming to your favorite VOD spot.

 

 

 

The History of Future Folk

The History of Future Folk

The logline for this movie is simple: Aliens decide to form a bluegrass band instead of destroying Earth. I know, I know, I know… A tale as old as time. A premise you see every other week at the box office… 🙂

This looks campy, quirky, funny, sweet and original. There needs to be more original ideas like this produced in Hollywood. I applaud the writer/co-director John Mitchell and admit I am a bit jealous I didn’t think of this concept first. And he got Dee Snider to be in his movie.

You can look for this in theaters May 31st. I know I will be.
