Yes, I’ll admit, I’m behind. But, Black Friday! Yes, I fell for that age-old commercial trick. And committed the worst crime of all – I didn’t keep you informed 🙁 But, I refuse to dwell on the past. Moving on! What’s new and exciting at the theater this week?
What’s the deal with Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard? Did they really do it? Is she having Brad’s baby? How does Angie feel about this? And Jen? What’s she up to, and will she ever get married and have babies?
JK. No one gives a rat’s a** about these people’s private lives. Why, when we have Trump heading to the White House? But I’m straying. Brad and Marion—are they any good? Well, yes. ALLIED is in fact worth the trouble of driving out to the theater. Brad usually picks good scripts, and Marion is super talented. And they inspire greatness, so the cinematography is wonderful. Overall, a great love/ espionage story set again the backdrop of Nazis being a**holes. Also, it’s fun watching Marion’s character blow s*** up. View the trailer here:
Yet another Kennedy-era White House biopic, this time with Jackie portrayed by Natalie Portman. An excellent choice, if political soap opera is your cuppa. Portman’s a brilliant, brilliant actress, and this role fits her tighter than spandex on Kim’s ass. Under Pablo Larrian’s direction, she’s spellbinding as Jackie in the days after the assassination. Plus, it’s kinda cool timing. Absolutely check this one out, and not just on your amazingly fabulous 75” screen—go to the theater. It’s worth an evening out. Check out the trailer:
Does anyone remember SAN ANDREAS? The formulaic earthquake flick with Dwayne Johnson? Somehow Brad Peyton managed to convince the money people that he can also direct horror. Kudos to salesmanship. And the result? Let’s see—are you sick of film folks copying INCEPTION? How about EXORCIST? And how do you feel about mash-ups? Right… okay… then maybe just watch INSIDIOUS again. But to be fair, here’s the story: a scientist (Aaron Eckhart) has figured out how to enter a person’s subconscious mind, and decides to assist a child (David Mazouz) possessed by a demon. Und there y’are, darlings. Here’s the trailer:
And now I’m off to enjoy the spoils of Cyber Monday. See y’all out there! And tweet me sometime!
