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).
A couple of months ago I dined with longtime friend Anderson Cowan at Pink Taco, a restaurant housed in the Century City Mall to talk about a podcast about filmmaking that I had in mind. My idea was much more jumbled and horrifically esoteric, and thankfully Anderson had a much simpler, and more importantly entertaining idea.
