Jason Reitman, son of famed director Ivan Reitman, has had mixed results lately with his films, but he started his career with four great films in a row. Each of them is unique, and each of them has a human, comedic touch; here are Jason Reitman’s first four films and where to buy, rent, or stream them.Continue reading “Home Video: Four Great Films by Ghostbusters: Afterlife director Jason Reitman and Where to Buy, Rent, or Stream Them”
I feel like writing this review might be a little redundant. This is the tenth film in this franchise, so if you’re not on board with the fambly at this point, I’m not sure you ever will be. The franchise shifted from “people who drive good” to “international super spies” over the last few films, and this one continues the cycle of one-upmanship with a trip to space.
Yes, they go to space in this one, so it’s an apt comparison when I say that this might be their Moonraker moment when they finally abandon all pretence of realism. Please note: I like Moonraker.Continue reading “Review: ‘F9’ is ridiculous, but knows its audience”
Here’s a quick clip of Charlize Theron kicking some ass.
Have I mentioned that this movie looks batshit insane? Because this movie looks batshit insane.
I was already looking forward to this movie but this new trailer has kicked that up a notch. It looks like George Miller might be certifiably insane. The imagery here is stunning and shocking and balls to the wall weird and I, for one, love it. Stop what you’re doing and watch this trailer now.
Holy shit this movie looks completely awesome.
Max Rockatansky is finally coming back for real this time and there’s a poster to mark the occasion. Which will be nearly a year from now.
Seth McFarlane’s first feature film Ted was a great little film. Not perfect, but it latched onto a story trope we’d seen before (grown man needs to grow out of his immature ways, is held back by immature childhood best friend) and took its to its logical extreme (best friend is his childhood toy) and the result was both R-Rated hilarious and heartfelt but without getting too bogged down in “ugh, I’ve seen this before.” It didn’t hurt either that McFarlane’s voice performance as Ted was inspired as though he was getting every r-rated joke he’d been wanting to do on family Guy out all at once.
McFarlane’s second feature takes aim at the Wild West. It’s still R-rated and it’s still a comedy but where Ted managed to break the mold _A Million Ways To Die In The West_ stays pretty firmly in its mold. That’s not to say it’s not funny. I laughed a bunch of times. Not enough times though, and the rest of the time I was bored.
Hot on the heels of [all the character posters](https://awesomefriday.ca/2014/01/character-posters-for-seth-mcfarlanes-a-million-ways-to-die-in-the-west/) we get a red band trailer for Seth McFarlane’s _A Million Ways To Die In The West_.
Seth McFarlane is the undisputed king of television, or at least Fox Television, and his first big film _Ted_ was a huge hit for good reason: it was great. His second effort, the western comedy _”A Million Ways To Die In The West”_ is out this year and here are some character posters he released on twitter this morning.
