A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Nov 18th, 2019

“If I could sum A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood up best for you, a boy about 10 years old gave it a standing ovation and it’s not exactly a kid’s movie.”

Mr. Rogers continues to charm on-screen with the newest installation in films that seem to capture the heart and soul of America’s childhood sweetheart in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. This film is a total 180 from last year’s Won’t You Be My Neighbor documentary which focused primarily on Rogers, as this film centers more on journalist Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) and the relationship he lacks with his father (Chris Cooper). It’s not what I was expecting, but I am not mad it’s what I got.

Film Review: ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor’!

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 8th, 2018

In the dumpster fire that is our world these days, Won’t You Be My Neighbor is film you didn’t know you needed.  It’s soothing, it’s sweet, and it’s a sentimental look back at what may be the best children’s TV show ever made. The documentary, brought to us by Morgan Neville, centers on Fred Rogers himself and mission he had to bring his message that love conquers all to viewers everywhere.

‘Flight of the Conchords’ are coming back to HBO!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 11th, 2018

In the daytime of the night, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, who make up the duo that is the hilarious ‘Flight of the Conchords‘ are coming back to HBO for a one-hour special of music and comedy later this year. The comedic pair will perform new and old songs on their upcoming comedy tour, which will be filmed in front of a sold out audience in the UK. This is just excellent news and I hope the two will have future specials and even a new show after the success of this upcoming one. I wonder if there will be a new Bowie song or a sequel to ‘Business Time’. I hope so.

Alan Ball has a new show coming out on HBO, meaning we should all pay attention to this. The new show is called ‘Here and Now‘ and stars Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins. If you don’t remember who Alan Ball is, he wrote a great film called ‘American Beauty‘, which won a ton of awards. He then went on to create ‘Six Feet Under‘ and ‘True Blood‘ for HBO. We’ve all been waiting patiently since then for him to come back to work on a new HBO series.

HBO orders 10th season of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 14th, 2017

It was several years between season 9 and season 9 of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm‘, which the 9th season just ended on HBO to rave reviews and huge laughs. It was one of my favorite seasons for sure where Larry David had a Fatwa placed on him. The President of HBO programming Casey Bloys announced today that a 10th season will be happening and production will start next spring. Yes, that means we will have to wait a year at the most for a new season and not several years like in the past.

Considered to be the best fighters in southern China during the 19th century Qing dynasty, each of the “Ten Tigers of Canton” was a master of a unique martial arts style, from the “Hap Family Fist” to the “Bone Melting Palm.” Their stories have been embellished by folk legends and passed down from generation to generation, and now two of their stories will be brought to American audiences when HBO releases Master of the Drunken Fist: Beggar So and Master of the Shadowless Kick: Wong Kei-Ying on Blu-ray™ and DVD August 8th.

The Multi-Media Men Podcast is back with another episode, marking a return of the show since earlier this year. Expect even more. This is Episode #64. It was a lot of fun to say the least as Wade Davis and myself discussed the hilarious film ‘King Kung Fu‘, HBO’sWestworld‘ series so far, and some election movies to get you in the spirit of voting! Enjoy the show.

HBO has welcomed Jay and Mark Duplass into their fold with ‘Room 104‘, a comedy anthology series.

We’re going to get to know room 104 intimately as that room is the focus of the project and the occupants that pass through that room each week.

Westworld‘ is a new series for HBO based on the book by Michael Crichton and it’s been forever in the making, well at least it seems that way. The book debuted in 1973 and has been begging for a new screen treatment since Yul Brynner made the role of the Gunslinger, his own. Lisa Joy Nolan and Jonathan Nolan answered the call and an updated ‘Westworld‘ debuts in October of this year.

Finally! Larry David has agreed and has come up with a good enough story to bring one of the funniest shows back to television for a 9th season. I’m of course talking about ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm‘. It has been five years since the last season of ‘Curb‘, and I’m just so happy that there will be new episodes. Last week, J.B Smoove, who plays Leon on the show said that Larry was thinking of some ideas and that he wanted to do another season.

Film Review: ‘Neighbors 2’!

by Bryan Kluger on May 18th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

0002-neighbors-2-ew_0

It’s rare when a comedy sequel works on all levels. With sequels, you’d hope the original cast comes back and there is a good balance of returning and new jokes and plot devices to make it stand on its own without doing the same recycled material as the original. With the case of ‘Neighbors‘, you had a pretty great cast with Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Dave Franco, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, in an ‘R’ rated comedy about a couple with a newborn baby, trying to raise a family next to a frat house. It was a solid premise with a lot of funny moments. The small budget film of only $18 million went on to make over $270 million at the box office.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Stephen Root can be solidly qualified as one of “those guys”. You’ve seen him in just about everything, but oh-my-gosh-what-is-his-name?! He’s an amazing character and as such, has been in too many projects to list and his voice has featured in even more. He was the voice behind one of the core characters from the long-running ‘King of the Hill‘ animated series for example. Now he can add one more credit to his resume with a role in ‘Barry‘.
