LaborDayJasonReitmanFLphotofull1

I just love the films Jason Reitman has directed. He did ‘Juno‘, ‘Up in the Air‘, ‘Thank You For Smoking‘, and ‘Young Adult‘. Needless to say, he knows what he’s doing, as his father Ivan Reitman has passed down a great gift to him. His next film ‘Labor Day‘ looks incredible. It stars Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet, and is an adaptation from the Joyce Maynard novel.

Film Review: ‘Gringo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 8th, 2018

Gringo‘ follows a straight-laced business man named Harold (David Oyelowo) who works for a medical marijuana company run by Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Elaine (Charlize Theron), who are planning a secret merger they don’t want Harold to discover. In order for the merger to go through, they must clean up the books at their Mexican facility which has been selling a “weed pill” to a cartel leader to help the company financially.

Hey guys, Jana here,

"This Is The End" At The 5th Annual Summer Of Sony

Sometimes an idea begins as a movie but seems better suited to a series order after working up the project for a bit, such is the case with ‘Future Man‘, a comedy from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, slated as a half-hour comedy picked up by Hulu. The pitch from Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir had a bit of a bidding war between networks of all shape and size was ultimately won over by Sony Pictures TV. Point Grey Pictures, Matt Tolmach Productions will be producing with Sony.

Short Snap Film Review: ‘Men, Women, and Children’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 16th, 2014

Sara O., Here…

Men-Women-and-Children

There’s something about Men, Women and Children that was just a little too much. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it after I left the theatre—the only clear feeling at that time was an overwhelming sense of hopelessness in humanity.  So you’re officially warned, this is not the Jason Reitman of the hilariously heartwarming Juno.  This is the Jason Reitman who wants to scare the living daylights out of you by showing every worst-case scenario that comes out of people’s obsession with social media and the Internet.

Fernando’s Review of ‘Labor Day’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 31st, 2014

Fernando M., Here…

Jason Reitman, well known for modern classics such as “Juno” and “Up in the Air” takes a drastic turn with his newest film, “Labor Day.”  Though Reitman usually hits us with his own special blend of comedy and misery that is somehow equally lighthearted and cynical, you can expect none of that here.

Hi, Bryan Here…

labor-day-movie-photo-9

I had the great opportunity to talk with writer Joyce Maynard and actor Gattlin Griffith on their film ‘Labor Day‘, which stars Josh Brolin, Kate Winslet, and Griffith. The film was directed by Jason Reitman and I found myself entranced by the film as you can read my review HERE. We discuss the origins of the story, some of the fun things that happen on set, as well as some of Griffith’s favorite movies. He even said he wanted to star in a remake of one of the best 80’s movies to ever come out. Enjoy the short interview and be sure to see ‘Labor Day‘.

Film Review: ‘Labor Day’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 30th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

labor-day-review-1

In a shift in tone and subject matter for director Jason Reitman (‘Juno‘, ‘Up In The Air‘), his newest film ‘Labor Day‘ is a sweet tale of love and starting over. Originally written by Joyce Maynard with a screenplay treatment by Reitman himself, this gem of a film is a slice of great pie. Sure, this situation would never play out as it did in the film, but is one that we would hope for. With a stellar cast that includes Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin, Tobey Maguire, J.K. Simmons, Gattlin Griffith, and James Van Der Beek, ‘Labor Day‘ is a holiday I’d revisit again and feel good about it.
