Hey guys, Jana here,

The-Coen-brothers-007

 When we’re talking Hollywood, or just about movies in general and someone mentions the Coen’s. Everyone gets a different image in their heads. Some immediately think of Nicolas Cage‘s creepy porn-stache in ‘Raising Arizona‘, others think of the twangy song made popular in ‘O Brother Where Art Thou?‘ (which is currently on my iPod). Still others think of ‘The Dude’ in ‘The Big Lebowski‘.

Hi, Jana here,

coens

If we were to talk about filmmakers that have a specific feel to their films there would be a wide variety of names on that list. But if we narrow the field down to filmmakers that are a wildly successful pair of brothers, Joel and Ethan Coen would undoubtedly fit the bill.

The Coen’s have a peppered legacy of complex films with ‘Raising Arizona‘, ‘Fargo‘, ‘The Big Lebowski‘ and ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou‘ among many others. Looks like the pair is not taking any time off from a career that has most recently been recognized with an Academy Award nomination for 2013’s ‘Inside Llewyn Davis‘. Universal Pictures has picked up ‘Hail, Caesar!‘ the latest original screenplay from the Coen’s. Besides writing the script, they will direct stars George Clooney and Josh Brolin in starring roles.

Hi Bryan Here….

Ethan Coen and Joel Coen are set to executive produce an hourlong single-camera comedy for Fox, which the two co-created with another feature writer, Phil Johnston (Cedar Rapids). The project, titled HarveKarbo, has received a script commitment with significant penalty from Fox.  How cool is this.  I wonder how hands on the Coens will be on this.

Hi Bryan Here…

Several years ago, the Coen Bros. wrote a script for a remake of “Gambit”.  As of right now, they are not attached in any way, shape, or form to this film, other than their initial script they wrote.  However they already have a director to helm this project which is Michael Hoffman.  He directed the amazing film, “The Station Agent”.

Hi Bryan Here…

The Coen Bros. recently sat down with EMPIRE MAGAZINE for an interview on True Grit, and as usual, the Coen’s were very vague and timid, when asked about upcoming projects.

THE JESUS ROLLS – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 4th, 2020

“The Jesus Rolls lacks any of the comedy and character that was brought forth in The Big Lebowski.”

The 1998 instant classic film The Big Lebowski became a worldwide phenomenon that has translated into big conventions similar to Comic-con, quote-along screenings, signature cosplay, and even religion. The Coen brothers perfectly crafted a brilliant comedic crime caper with some of the most memorable characters committed to the cinema with some of the funniest dialogue ever spoken. There are no real jokes in the film in the traditional sense, but the screenplay keeps knocking out each line of dialogue with comedy gold. Over 20 years later, The Coens gave their blessing to John Turturro who played the small, but vital role of Jesus Quintana, the ball-licking, angry opponent to the Dude, Walter, and Donny during league play to further the story of his own character in The Jesus Rolls that takes a new approach to the character and is void of any memory of the previous film.

BLOW THE MAN DOWN – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2020

“Blow The Man Down shouldn’t be missed and is one of those diamonds in the rough that exceeds expectations. “

There’s a special little gem hidden inside Amazon’s digital library of movies with their new film Blow The Man Down from filmmakers Danielle Krudy and Bridget Savage Cole. With its darkly dry comedy, fantastic dialogue, and secretly crime-ridden small town in Maine, this feels like a sibling story set in the Coen Bros. universe of Fargo that hits all of the right genre tropes of drama, comedy, and thrills. Blow The Man Down is a unique modern-day noir tale full of great performances and one hell of a murderous yarn.
