Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

I saw “Say Anything…” back in 1989. I was 9 years old. “Jerry Maguire” came out in ’96 when I was 16. So it wasn’t until 2000 when “Almost Famous” hit theaters that Cameron Crowe became a name in my household. I am very excited that he is returning to his rock’n’roll roots (“Almost Famous” is loosely based on Crowe’s time as a writer for Rolling Stone magazine) with a comedy that he will write, direct, and executive produce.

Film Review: ‘Draft Day’!!

Rebecca S., Here…

DRAFT DAY

I have not been excited about a Kevin Costner movie since before I had my first kiss, which was Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. And that came out in 1991 when I was 11, and let’s face it, I was going to see Christian Slater.  It was the last Costner movie that I saw in theaters, though I have sat through or fallen asleep during his other films like Waterworld and The Postman.  So when I was asked to go see Draft Day, a movie I knew absolutely nothing about going into the theater except that it was about either the NFL or NBA  (Do other sports have draft days?), I took my husband along for moral support/sports clarification just in case. This movie had all the makings of a perfect storm of being truly awful and I had a depraved eagerness to write this review in order to drop the hate bomb on Costner. But man, was I wrong. This movie was good. Really good.

Book of Negroes

Lawrence Hill wrote a book that has two names. ‘The Book Of Negroes‘ is the Canadian title and ‘Someone Knows My Name‘ is the Americanized title. The base of the story is told through the eyes of Aminata Diallo. She is kidnapped from her South African home at the age of 11. She travels the ocean in captivity being sold into slavery in California. Like the book title, her name is changed once she gets into America, as well.

07

Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Danny McBride, Rachel McAdams, Alec Baldwin, Cameron Crowe and Bill Murray? If I asked you a week ago what these people had in common, some of you researcher types would probably find some connection besides, the new Cameron Crowe film that’s been announced. However, I’m focusing on the Crowe movie.

Hi Bryan Here….

That’s right Cusack and Knoxville will star in this what seems like uproarious comedy film titled ‘Carnaval’.  Cusack will play a sports scout sent to Rio de Janeiro during the over-the-top bacchanalia of Carnaval to recruit the world’s best soccer player with the promise that if he signs the star, he will inherit the agency. Knoxville plays his best friend, a musician who tags along and has an affair with a woman who turns out to be the player’s girlfriend, derailing the signing mission.

Bryan’s Most Anticipated Films for 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.

Haley Joel Osment Joins ‘Entourage’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 19th, 2014

Jana B. here,

haley-loel-osment-2011

Haley Joel Osment is a name that is said pretty much in the same sentence as “Have you seen ‘The Sixth Sense‘? You know the one that kid Haley Joel Osment is in?” For me, he kind of dropped off the radar since the flop that was ‘A.I.: Artificial Intelligence‘ and the mildly successful ‘Secondhand Lions‘ in 2003. Turns out he has voiced a slew of video game characters and has been in some movies I’ve never heard the name of. Osment is currently finishing up production on the Kevin Smith-directed comedy ‘Tusk‘ that is expected to release this fall.
