Movie Review: This Is Where I Leave You

In: Matt, Movies

This is Where I Leave You hit theatres this week and having witnessed some of the director’s past transgressions such as Cheaper by the Dozen and Night at the Museum I had my hesitations. The film features an all-star cast so at least I had that to look forward to.

The film, adapted from the novel by Jonathan Topper, tells the story of a dysfunctional family brought together by the death of their not so religious father whose last request was that the family sit Shiva, the seven day Jewish mourning period. As you can expect hilarity ensues as the family struggles to cope with being around each other while also dealing with their own personal issues.

The film’s story is set during the winter of 1981 in New York City which is statistically one of the most violent years on record in the city’s history. Chastain and Oscar-less nominated Oscar Isaac play a couple chasing the American Dream during this turbulent time.

Rounding out the cast are Alessandro Nivola, Albert Brooks and David Oyelowo. A Most Violent Year hits theaters on December 31, just in time for Oscar consideration. Check out the first trailer below.

Movie Review: The Maze Runner

In: Movies, Tommy D

Movies like The Maze Runner aren’t brand new concepts. Dystopian future where the fate of the world rests on the shoulders of teenagers. We have the Hunger Games as Divergent which are both great franchises, and both female led. The Maze Runner is essentially the same kind of story but this time with all boys.

The movie starts fast right away. You are thrown into the maze when Thomas is sent into the Glades to meet his fate. He is greeted by the boys who have already been trapped there led by Alby. He takes Thomas around and shows him the ropes of the mini civilaztions, tell him that everyone has a role to play and they get along fine. That’s when Thomas starts noticing the Maze. No one knows where it came from or what it is, only that the get out of where they are they have to find the exit.

Magic Mike XXL Finds Its Female Lead In Amber Heard

In: Donovan, Movies

If there was a weak link in the first Magic Mike film, I would have to say it was Channing Tatum’s love interest. No disrespect to Cody Horn, but she just felt out of place in the film and wasn’t at all captivating. I’m a fan of Amber Heard so hopefully, she brings more to the table. No details about her role have been disclosed, but she joins the production which is currently filming.

It’s most likely Amy Adams will score another Oscar nomination with her much-buzzed about performance in Big Eyes. After five previous nods, could lucky number six finally be her ticket to Oscar glory. Award pundits think it’s a strong possibility. Fingers crossed she wins. The 40-year-old is long overdue.

In Big Eyes, Adams plays famed painter Margaret Keane whose husband claimed credit for her work to great acclaim and fortune. After painting masterpieces in her basement, her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) would then add his signature. Things eventually became sour and the two ended up in a huge legal battle. The presiding judge placed two easels side by side and challenged each of them to start painting.

Jason Schwartzman, Krysten Ritter, Danny Huston and Terence Stamp round out the cast. Big Eyes directed by Tim Burton hits theaters on December 25. Check out the first trailer below.

zoolander-2-sequel

This is ridiculously awesome news. Talks of a Zoolander sequel have been circulating since 2011, but it appears it’s finally happening. Will Ferrell revealed the breaking development recently to JobLo.com.

“We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it.” – Will Ferrell

What’s even better than ‘blue steel’ coming back is the fact Ferrell’s fan favorite Mugatu is also part of the sequel. IMHO, he stole the show in the original. It’ll be interesting to see if he’ll still be the villain or reformed bad guy.

Justin Theroux
is set to direct, with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson returning as well. Let’s hope Theroux and his massive anaconda make a cameo in the film. LOL. Are you excited about this news? Weigh in below and check out some of Mugatu’s best scenes.

Sorry lawbreakers, Matthew McConaughey won’t be back to enforce all the stripping laws. Greg Jacobs who is directing the Magic Mike sequel confirmed what was widely speculated. No McConaissance for Magic Mike XXL.

Guess someone’s too big for his britches after winning an Oscar ;) I kid. Thankfully, Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer will return to show off their seductive moves.

In addition to revealing McConaughey’s status, Jacobs revealed some tidbits about the plot of the highly-anticipated sequel.

“What am I allowed to say?” Greg told IndieWire. “It’s road trip movie and put it this way, it’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.”

Magic Mike XXL hits theaters in July 2015. In the meantime, check out Matthew’s stripping performance in the original. It’s most likely the last time you’ll ever see him wearing chaps. Enjoy.
