Judd Apatow is almost like Adam Sandler where his projects are hit or miss, but lately more of a miss which makes Netflix a perfect partner seeing as that’s where Sandler’s current projects are calling home. For Apatow, it’s only a comedy series right now that’s set to debut on February 19 called ‘Love‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

APATOW-articleLarge

The guy who brought us ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin‘, ‘Knocked Up‘, and ‘Funny People‘ has a new film called ‘Trainwreck‘. Yes, Judd Apatow is back in the director’s seat again, this time with the beautiful comedienne Amy Schumer in the lead role. Apatow has really evolved as a filmmaker since ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin‘ in telling better and more personal stories of relationships, but still having those hilarious dick jokes and gross-out gags to make us belly laugh.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Director Judd Apatow (‘Knocked Up‘, ‘Freaks and Geeks’, ‘40 Year Old Virgin‘) wrote a ‘Simpsons‘ script back in 1990, which was when he was just 23 years old. Also back in 1990 was when ‘The Simpsons‘ first aired as its own series apart from the ‘Tracey Ullman‘ show. When Apatow wrote the script, the series was just six episodes in. Whatever happened to this script? Well since Apatow back then wasn’t known in the business, I’m sure the Fox execs didn’t pay attention to his screenplay.

Judd Apatow and Brie Larson Talk ‘Trainwreck’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 19th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

Judd Apatow

 

Judd Apatow is developing ‘Trainwreck‘. No, I’m not saying I think the film will be a trainwreck.  Apatow has found his niche in the film world much in the same way Quentin Tarantino and Kevin Smith have their cemented fans. A few of the trademarks for an Apatow film are finding the same 10-12 actors appearing in almost each one, and while they are brilliant comedies, they’re realistic and a bit longer than the average 90 minute comedy. So far the only thing that’s been released about ‘Trainwreck‘, is that he’s directing and we’re beginning to see the cast fill out.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Writer/director/producer Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Funny People) brings audiences This Is 40, an original comedy that expands upon the story of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from the blockbuster hit Knocked Up as we see first-hand how they are dealing with their current state of life.  Looks like Apatow is straying a bit away from the toilet humor with each film he makes.  This looks very good, however I will miss Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Martin Starr, and Jonah Hill in this film.  Enjoy the trailer.  ‘This is 40’ releases December 21st, 2012.

Judd Apatow will be Making a New HBO Series

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 8th, 2010

Judd Apatow of “40 Year Old Virgin”, “Knocked Up”, and “Funny People” fame will be bringing a pilot episode for HBO. There is no name for this project yet.

Judd Apatow has not been involved with TV since the amazing high school and college shows “Freaks and Geeks” and “Undeclared”. “Freaks and Geeks” is in my top five tv shows of all time.

The show will come from 24 year old Lena Dunham who wrote, directed, and starred in the award winning film “Tiny Furniture”. It won top prize as SXSW festival this year. The movie will come to theaters in November.

The Village Voice said this about the movie: “Tiny Furniture earned the 23-year-old Dunham comparisons to Woody Allen. She’s a gifted comedienne, eager to plum her insecurities over her imperfect physical appearance for both poignancy and laughs—I’m not sure I’ve seen a film that so accurately and unblinkingly depict what it’s like to feel unattractive.”

Lena will write, produce, direct and star in the pilot episode. It will be “about the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their early 20’s,” according to Deadline.

The trailer for “Tiny Furniture” can be found HERE.

I am looking forward to this.

If you have never seen “Freaks and Geeks” then seriously pick up the one season series below.  You will re live your high school years.  It is one of the best tv shows ever to be broadcast.

THE KING OF STATEN ISLAND – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 8th, 2020

 

” The King of Staten Island is the next step in the heartfelt comedy world. “

Film Director Judd Apatow has an uncanny ability in telling a transformative story about a character who at first is rough and ragged around the edges, but by the end of the tale is a magnificent piece of human existence, willing and ready to be better, which is what most people strive for in life – – complete with unlimited humor. With Apatow’s latest film The King of Staten Island, the SNL funnyman Pete Davidson gives a hefty dose of his personal life that mixes perfectly with Apatow’s brand of comedy and storytelling about a 24-year-old man still struggling to deal with the death of his father when he was a child and navigating his mundane life, not realizing what wonderful elements are surrounding him. The King of Staten Island is poignant and significant in dealing with grief and growing up, along with some gleefully funny sequences that mold flawlessly with some heartfelt emotions in what is to be Apatow’s best film to date.

Favorite Movies of 2017!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2017

Was 2017 a great year for movies? Of course it was. There were some excellent films to be released in 2017. There were also some bad ones for sure, but the focus on this article are some of the Best films that stuck with me long after viewing. Most people will give you their Top 10 list, but this is no Top 10, because there are just so many movies that I loved and feel passionate about, that I find it difficult and unpleasing to rank them.

Instead, these are my favorite movies of 2017, which I hope you’ve seen already. If you haven’t yet, you’re in for a real treat and I can’t wait for you to see them. Some of these films are still in theaters, while some are on Netflix, 4K UHD, and Blu-ray, so you’ll be able to quickly see any of these if you haven’t. I watched over 270 movies that were released in 2017 and these are my absolute favorites. I hope you get to see all of these, because I know you’ll love them. In no particular order…..

A Retrospective Look Back at the year 2007 in Movies!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 20th, 2017

Written by: Dan Moran

It has been a decade since we have had an overwhelmingly great year of movies. There have been some ‘great movies’ for sure, that have been released since 2007, but a collective year of dominance like 2007 hasn’t been experienced in 10 years. We have to start with the films that people still talk about today from 2007. No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, & Zodiac. I mean what a Top 3 for one calendar year!  The closest we got to this was in 2015 when the Top 3 was, Mad Max: Fury Road, Mad Max: Fury Road, & Mad Max: Fury Road.
