Nightcrawler Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal Is Sleazy

Trailers / Comments Off on Nightcrawler Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal Is Sleazy

Jake Gyllenhaal / Nightcrawler

Jake Gyllenhaal as a guy with a high work ethic and low moral standards who, as it turns out, is the perfect guy to be a bottom feeding freelance news gatherer.

Heads up: I watched this trailer and it feels like it gives away a lot towards the end. I think it’s worth watching but it might give up some important details. And the plot.

Beyoncé & Jay-Z “On the Run” Coming to HBO September 20th

News / Comments Off on Beyoncé & Jay-Z “On the Run” Coming to HBO September 20th

This fall’s first “event television” is coming September 20th to HBO.  It’s a two hour concert special with 40 songs from the Jay-Z and Beyoncé On The Run tour and I promise it will be all anyone talks about for days before and after.  The Carters are collectively worth an estimated half a billion dollars and while they’ve been the topic of much gossip since the infamous Met Gala elevator incident there’s no doubt that these two put on one hell of a show.

If you missed the best trailer for a movie that doesn’t exist directed by Melina Matsoukas starring Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Guillermo Diaz, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida & Kidada Jones that was released for the tour back in May check it out… Continue reading…

Review: Prisoners

Prisoners

Ed. Note: I know this is really late, but I’m on holiday!

You’ve already seen the trailer for Prisoners so you already know the basic set up. Hugh Jackman and Maria Bello are best friends with Terrance Howard and Viola Davis On thanksgiving they share the evening together and the couples youngest children go outside to find a lost toy and never return. Paul Dano plays a simpleton named Alex who is the best suspect and is arrested by Jake Gyllenhaal but it quickly turns out that Alex doesn’t have the faculties to have committed such a crime and is released. Angry, desperate and searching for answers, Hugh Jackman kidnaps Paul Dano and proceeds to torture him for answers.

Turns out though that there is more going on. I’m going to talk in more detail after the jump and while I’m not going to directly spoil anything this is a mystery story so talking about it will give you clues. If you want to skip the review and know what I think? Yes, go see it. It’s good. It’s not perfect but it’s well thought out and incredibly well acted and beautifully shot. Details after the jump.

Prisoners Trailer: Hugh Jackman Goes Crazy

Prisoners

I feel like I’ve seen this movie before. Two children are missing and the desperate father will do anything to get them back.

However, Denis Villeneuve is a talented director (and Canadian!) and he’s made some pretty great films most of which tackle some pretty difficult subject matter (see: Incendies or Polytechnique).

He’s also managed to round up Hugh Jackman, Maria Bello, Terrance Howard, Viola Davis, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano and Melissa Leo, a pretty all star cast of award winners and nominees.

Let’s watch!
