On this week’s episode of CinemAddicts, Anderson Cowan and I review two excellent movies that are coming out on Friday (‘Green Room’ and ‘The Jungle Book’). If wall to wall, intense action and tension is your cup of tea, Green Room, directed by Blue Ruin filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier, should fit the bill. Disney fans or moviegoers who are looking to take their family to the theaters should definitely flock to The Jungle Book, a film that marks Jon Favreau’s (Chef, Iron Man) finest moment as a director.
It’s week 14 of CinemAddicts, as Anderson Cowan and I review Jake Gyllenhaal’s latest film “Demolition.” Anderson also took in a screening of the first-person action film “Hardcore Henry” (Sharlto Copley, Haley Bennett) and I checked out the arresting family drama “Louder Than Bombs” (Jesse Eisenberg, Gabriel Byrne).
On this week’s CinemAddicts, Anderson Cowan and I review to “kill” movies. Starring Nicholas Hoult, “Kill Your Friends” centers on an A&R exec (Hoult) who will do anything it takes to climb the top of the corporate ladder, even if it means committing cold-blooded murder. “They Will Have To Kill Us First” is a documentary on the ban of Malian music in 2012, and we both have vastly different takes on the documentary. I also had the chance of checking out “Miles Ahead,” which features Don Cheadle playing the late great Miles Davis.
On this week’s CinemAddicts, Anderson Cowan and I review the Turkish horror film “Baskin” and the impressionistic Chet Baker biopic “Born To Be Blue.” I also briefly discuss my impressions of “I Saw The Light, ” which has Tom Hiddleston playing Hank Williams.
This week on CinemAddicts, Anderson Cowan and I review “Midnight Special” and “The Confirmation,” two films featuring child actor Jaeden Lieberher. Though we gave similar reactions to “Midnight Special,” we were night and day when discussing “The Confirmation.”
On this week’s episode of CinemAddicts, Anderson Cowan and I review the latest Sacha Baron Cohen comedy The Brothers Grimsby. Filled with a ton of action and a memorably disgusting elephant scene, The Brothers Grimsby also stars Deadwood’s Ian McShane, Oscar winning actress Penelope Cruz, and Isla Fisher (who previously worked with Grimsby director Louis Leterrier in Now You See Me).
This week’s CinemAddicts features our reviews of the films “London Has Fallen” and “Knight of Cups” (I also share my thoughts on the new Disney feature Zootopia). As usual, Anderson and I have vastly different opinions on Gerard Butler’s latest magnum opus!!
During this week’s episode of CinemAddicts, Anderson Cowan and I cover the high octane heist thriller “Triple 9” and the Thomas Jane/Laurence Fishburne actioner “Standoff.” I also briefly chime in on “A Country Called Home,” a wonderful and subtle indie drama headlined by Imogen Poots and co-starring Ryan Bingham, Mary McCormack and Mackenzie Davis (Poots and Davis worked together on That Awkward Moment).
