Hey, hey everyone,
I know how everyone loves change so I am tweaking the format this week to try to include as many new releases as possible. Don’t like it? Let me know. If I still missed something, mention it in the comments.
Like what you see? Click the image and buy the DVD/Blu on Amazon through this site and I personally guarantee we use the money for something very frivolous and useless.
PICK OF THE WEEK!
I loved this film. Definitely one of the best last year and in recent memory. Insanely great filmmaking and acting. Don’t want my opinion? Fine! Here is what SN film reviewer Mathias Folsted had to say about it: “Birdman” is a wildly entertaining thrill-ride packed with witty dialogue, naturalistic performances, and impressive virtuoso filmmaking.
NOPE OF THE WEEK!
So this is what Joey Lauren Adams is up to nowadays. Nope.
I am not a regular viewer of Doctor Who but I have seen four Christmas episodes. Seems like a big deal for the show. Like the Simpsons and Halloween.
Will I watch this at some point in my life? I’m sure I will. Will it be anytime soon? No. Unless this movie jumps directly to TBS and runs every fucking hour of the day. Which won’t happen. That’s what “Big Bang Theory” is for.
Nick Cage gotta eat!
Purple Wedding, Red Viper v. The Mountain, Tywin Lannister on a toilet. If none of these things mean anything to you then you don’t watch or like Game of Thrones. Which is cool. The show is not suffering for ratings and Season 5 is right around the corner.
This movie, about a 50-something year old director who sets out to make a movie about his own life in order to figure out how he screwed things up so much, grossed $1,681 in box office and probably had a fraction of V/H/S: Viral’s budget.
The acclaimed documentary about Roger Ebert. Not featured: Siskel or Roeper.
Jeffrey Combs plays the voice of Mold in a bathroom that gives advice to a suicide survivor. Fuck yeah, this sounds awesome!
A South Korean hitman/action/crime drama movie. People are gonna die.
Puck Propaganda, what’s up with this one?
I’ll see this just because it is Bill Murray playing a hedonistic war veteran.
A drama/western starring and directed by Tommy Lee Jones. I like Tommy Lee Jones but this looks like a snorefest.
Ahem, in the words of Nick Nightly, “Whoooooooooooooo cares?” Seriously, the movie that almost kinda/sorta/not really sent the US to war with North Korea has been out on VOD and other places since late December. Apparently the DVD comes with a secret decoder ring to help you see the hidden code in the hacked Sony emails. SPIDERMAN + MARVEL = $$$$$$$$
Here is what Detective Dee said about this one: Princess Kaguya is easily the best movie of the year: The retelling of a Japanese folk tale is realized with eye-popping, gorgeous hand-drawn animation and a strong sign of life from this kind of art form as well as from the responsible Studio Ghibli, both of which have been through some rough times lately. With its sketchy style, reminiscent of old Japanese paintings and early cartoons, it may be one of the most beautiful and inventive animation film in years.
Eddie Redmayne won the SAG award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking counter to Felicity Jones as Hawking’s wife, Jane. In the last decade, 100% of the actors who won the Best Actor SAG went on to win the Best Actor Oscar. Sorry Michael Keaton…
Haley Joel Osment and Noah Wyle. Something, something Civil War.
The third installment in the V/H/S franchise. It grossed $2,567 in box office. Yeah.
The Wahlberg family is so talented. Actors, singers, burger flippers. This is reality TV at its … best? Worst? I think I mean worst. Seriously, I watch a lot of crap, but the Walhbergs making hamburgers?
