The 12 Must See Movies Of September!

09.4.2013 | By |

September marks the end of summer movies in Hollywood and begins its transition towards the release of award winning films. Note my use of the word transition. Utilizing that word means that September only possesses 2 movies that have any real aspirations at being nominated or winning anything come Oscar time – Salinger for Best Documentary and Prisoners for a few nominations. This month also brings a plethora of documentaries. Almost half of the films on this list are documentaries. The rise in the genre is getting stronger by the year and I feel is becoming our new literature for facts. Ironically, Michael Moore, the best representative of the genre is nowhere to be found. You will find on this list everything from one of James Gandolfini’s final performances on film, The Beatles back on the screen and the mysterious universe of bodybuilding. Without further delay, here are the 12 Must See Movies of September! Read More

Watch: ‘Enough Said’ Trailer starring James Gandolfini

08.6.2013 | By |

It’s incredible to think James Gandolfini has passed away. I still can’t believe it. Which is why I’m very thrilled to see the first trailer in one of his final performances in Nicole Holofcener‘s Enough Said, which debuts next month at Toronto before Fox Searchlight gives it a September 20 release.

Gandolfini stars opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Toni Collette, and Catherine Keener in the comedy about a divorced woman who decides to pursue the man she’s interested in and learns he’s her new friend’s ex-husband. The whole plot seems hilarious and we get to see a different side to Gandolfini we don’t see often – the tender teddy bear.

Gandolfini’s last movie will be Animal Rescue, a crime-drama centered around a lost pit bull, a wannabe scam artist, and a killing. That film will be released next year.

Killing Them Softly: Q&A With Director Andrew Dominik

03.26.2013 | By |

Although ‘Killing Them Softly’ director Andrew Dominik has been in the business for over a decade, he doesn’t have a long catalog of films to his name, but the few truly speak wonders of his talent. His first film ‘Chopper’ came out in 2000, a comedic crime biography film based on the story of an Australian criminal, which received three awards from the Australian film institute including best director. It gave the New Zealand born director plenty of attention. So much so, that Brad Pitt couldn’t wait to work with him for his second directed film ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’ yet another crime biography but this time dramatic film. This one also went on to get great reviews and although it had some problems with the studio thanks to the big name attached it finally came out in 2007. Five years later his third film a crime drama thriller ‘Killing Them Softly’ is here and will open this Friday, November 30th nation wide. Read More

Trailer Premiere of "In the Loop"

05.15.2009 | By |

Trailer Premiere of "In the Loop"

“In the Loop” is drawing instant comparisons to some of the great political and absurdist comedies such as “Doctor Strangelove”, “Wag the Dog”, “Thank You For Not Smoking”, “Monty Python”.

The film is a smart comedy with razor-sharp, truly laugh-out-loud dialogue that pokes fun at the absurdity and ineptitude of our highest leaders. With everyone looking out for number one, and the fate of the free world at stake (but apparently incidental), the hilarious ensemble cast of characters bumbles its way through Machiavellian political dealings, across continents, and toward comic resolutions that are unforeseeable.

“In the Loop” will be released in theaters on July 24th, 2009.
