It Comes At Night will be the talk of the town, at least for movie buffs, for quite a spell. Its immersive storytelling heralds the distinct cinematic voice of writer/director Trey Edward Shults, and the film’s overall effectiveness should divide many a viewer. Two weeks after watching It Comes At Night, my reaction to the film has wavered back and forth, but I’ve come to a final decision.
One of the sad situations re: not having CinemAddicts every week is not getting the chance to praise movies like Alien: Covenant while Anderson amiably scoffs at my viewpoint. The movie was #1 at the box office but made just $36 million. Here’s my spoiler-free take on why Alien: Covenant is worth the price of admission (CinemAddicts listeners – I’m giving this movie four and a half stars!).
I’m giving away 1 (one) Blu-ray copy of The Salesman, which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. I’ve only viewed the movie once, so it’s in great condition. Entry details are found after the jump!
During the How to be a Latin Lover interviews, I asked director Ken Marino to name one of his favorite movies. He picked two films, Tootsie and The Big Lebowski, and he explains why he loves those movies after the jump!
This week’s CinemAddicts giveaway is the documentary I Am Not Your Negro. Anderson and I really dug this project, which is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson and is adapted from James Baldwin’s unfinished book Remember This House. We’re offering Two (2) DVDs of I Am Not Your Negro. Details below!!
Hidden Figures was an entertaining (and informative) film through and through, and we’re giving away One (1) Sealed Blu-Ray copy courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. Entry details below!
I’ll be ramping up our “Movie Love” segment in the coming months, and whenever I do a press junket I’ll try to squeeze in my “what movie or movies do you love to watch over and over again and why” question. I asked Rob Lowe about his fav flicks, and his answer (audio included) is below!!!
On this week’s show, Anderson and I talk about Donnie Darko’s 15th Anniversary, the horror film The Blackcoat’s Daughter, and Live Cargo. Details available after the jump!!
Mean Dreams, starring the late Bill Paxton, is reviewed on this week’s CinemAddicts, and All Nighter is also briefly discussed but, due to an embargo, I couldn’t actually “review the movie.” More details down below!!
