by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 2nd, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

Looks like things aren’t running perfectly smoothly in the world surrounding ‘Star Wars: Episode IX‘. Colin Trevorrow is directing the movie, but the script is in need of a rewrite. Trevorrow and Derek Connolly have spent a considerable amount of time on the script, but the copy needs some new blood infused into it.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Alien Nation (1988) Directed by Graham Baker Shown from left: Mandy Patinkin, James Caan

Jeff Nichols (‘Mud‘) is teaming up with 20th Century Fox to give a new spin on the 1988 sci-fi thriller ‘Alien Nation‘. Nichols is looking to write and direct the reboot that took the “buddy-cop” classification as far as anyone has by pairing up a curmudgeonly, racist, vet with not just someone different than him, but someone of another race entirely.

Hi, Bryan Here….

wish_i_was_here_-_h_-_2014

The first trailer for ‘Wish I Was Here‘ is officially out and ready for your viewing. This is Zach Braff’s (‘Scrubs‘) second film that he directed since ‘Garden State‘ in 2004. So yes, it’s been ten years since then and we are all in our 30s now. It’s difficult to pin point what exactly the story is here with this trailer, but rest assured, this film is going to be fantastic. It looks like Braff took the best parts of a Wes Anderson movie and the best parts of a Stanley Kubrick movie and mixed them together in his own magical talent to give us the tale of family, love, and loss. At least that is what it looks like. There is a lot going on in this trailer with different genres and characters, but one thing is for sure, I bet I’m gonna need a box of tissue for my eyes after watching this.

‘The Princess Bride’ Is Coming To The Stage!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

There is a list of things that actually make me Squee like a fan girl. Yes, ‘Squee’. Look it up on Urban Dictionary. Watching The Princess Bride as a kid was one of my greatest memories of lazy summer afternoons, impromptu snowed in school days with hot chocolate and a blanket. Being sick and all I wanted was my mom’s sick soup and to watch The Princess Bride, or read it. Now my sick movies are not only The Princess Bride, buy Gone With The Wind, as well. I’m not even close to being alone with my love of the cult classic that forever made The Foundations song, Build Me Up Buttercup, only think of Robin Wright and how the angsty Westley must have felt at times.

Hi, Bryan Here….

globes-drink

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.

Hi, Bryan Here…

“As you wish.”  Looks like we will all have to be shelling out money again for the 25th anniversary edition of ‘The Princess Bride’.  From celebrated director Rob Reiner (‘The Bucket List’) and Oscar®-winning screenwriter William Goldman (‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’) comes “an enchanting fantasy” (Time) filled with adventure, romance and plenty of “good-hearted fun” (Roger Ebert). Featuring a spectacular cast that includes Robin Wright (‘Forrest Gump’), Cary Elwes (‘No Strings Attached’), Mandy Patinkin (‘Homeland’) and Billy Crystal (‘Tooth Fairy’), this wonderful fairy tale about a Princess named Buttercup and her beloved is “a real dream of a movie” (People).
