Film Review: ‘Silver Linings Playbook’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 16th, 2012

FedMex Here….

The last time that we saw David O. Russell’s work on screen was just two years ago in the incredibly acclaimed “The Fighter.”  Russell had shown us the heartbreaking tale of a talented used to be who fell into the thralls of addiction while his younger brother struggled to become a prize fighter.  This year, we are treated to a tale again of characters who are a little removed from the norm and plagued by their own uncontrollable conditions.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are this generation’s Doris Day and Rock Hudson, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks – whatever you want to call them, they’re brilliant! Director David O. Russell has taken an obvious notice of this and continues to cast the pair in his films to rousing success. Then again, that’s a Russell standard, he finds actors he likes and he sticks with them. In this case, Robert DeNiro is another who has worked with him in the past that appears in ‘Joy‘. Under Russell’s direction, each of the actors has been nominated for an Academy Award for their performances, with JLaw winning for ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

jlaw-joy-slice

David O. Russell has  found a formula that works and he’s sticking to it. That combination is featuring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper together, throw in Robert De Niro and you have a partial cast list for the foursome’s latest endeavor ‘Joy‘. The group came together successfully in ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ then minus DeNiro for ‘American Hustle‘. Lawrence won an Academy Award for Silver Linings, so it makes sense to hope for big things from this picture.

Film Review: ‘American Sniper’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

thumbnail_19703

This production sure has had its ups and down. Actor Bradley Cooper was cast as real life Navy SEAL Chris Kyle who is one of the most decorated SEAL in US History with a confirmed 160 kills in the recent war as a sniper. He is responsible for saving many US soldier’s lives. Shortly after Cooper signed on to star, David O’Russell (‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ and ‘American Hustle‘) wanted to direct, which would have made sense, because Cooper and O’Russell worked together before. But he dropped out and and Steven Spielberg signed on to direct ‘American Sniper‘. But yet again, Spielberg dropped out, leaving this project in limbo.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Robert+De+Niro+Jennifer+Lawrence+18th+Annual+Akno3KmLocPl

David O. Russell is a renaissance man in the movie biz, a fairly well known renaissance man. The gifted, writer, director, producer has given us some staples that make up a well-rounded film education. ‘I Heart Huckabees‘, ‘The Fighter‘, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ and ‘American Hustle‘ are just among the credits attributed to Russell. His films are separated from the uninspired masses and Hollywood has noticed the difference with massive nominations when awards season rolls around.

“Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?” That’s right, ‘Rush Hour‘, which has had three successful feature films that starred Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan as police detectives is being remade. But it won’t be a feature film. Instead it will be an action series for Warner Bros. TV. Bill Lawrence (‘Scrubs‘) and Brett Ratner (‘Rush Hour‘) will serve as showrunners and producers.

Hey guys, Jana here,

bradley-cooper1

The entertainment world goes through fads, just like fashion. One day we’re inundated with talking sea animals from every animated company, the next day it’s all about bugs. Right now, culinary genius is taking center stage.

The Weinstein Company began production today on ‘Adam Jones‘. This pic puts Bradley Cooper (‘Silver Linings Playbook‘) and Sienna Miller (‘GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra‘) together and adds a little spice making Cooper a bad-boy Michelin chef who has to change his ways. The project was originally called ‘The Chef‘ until  ‘Chef‘, Jon Favreau’s tale of a chef who loses his restaurant and hits to the road in a food truck piecing his life, and his family, back together along the way. Obviously this can’t work in the film industry an agreement was made and a change of title followed.

Leonardo DiCaprio Joins ‘The Revenant’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 17th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

First-Look-at-Leonardo-DiCaprio-in-Character-for-The-Wolf-of-Wall-Street

If there’s an actor that is fit for period pieces, it’s unarguably Leonardo DiCaprio. From ‘Titanic’ to ‘Gangs of New York’, ‘The Aviator’, ‘Django Unchained’, ‘The Great Gatsby’ and even ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ was about as 80’s of a movie as you can go. Now he’s signed onto star in ‘The Revenant’ written and directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (‘Babel’, ’21 Grams’), co-written by Mark L. Smith.

Bradley Cooper to play ‘The Elephant Man’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 23rd, 2014
Jana B. here,

Elephant Man

Bradley Cooper is the Sexiest Man Alive. It’s easy to see how legions of fans fall for his rugged, classic good looks.  He just received his second Oscar nomination in the last 2 years for his role in ‘American Hustle‘ and last year from ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘. Cooper is turning his attention back to Broadway, now. It has been eight years since he starred with Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd in 2006’s ‘Three Days of Rain‘. The reason he is returning to the stage is to headline a revival of Bernard Pomerance’sThe Elephant Man‘. Cooper will play John Merrick,  the seriously deformed man John Hurt portrayed in the 1980 film version and Cooper, himself played in 2012 at Williamstown Theatre Festival. Where the film was heavy on prosthetic SFX, the stage production is devoid of any such prosthesis. The deformity is to be shown through physical acting alone.
