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.
The Bronze is now playing in select theaters, and if you want to read more about this comedy, check out my pieces on Deepest Dream and Hollywood Outbreak. For the purposes of CinemAddicts, I asked The Bronze co-stars Sebastian Stan and Thomas Middleditch to name their favorite comedies.
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).
Anderson Cowan and I will be taping this week’s episode of CinemAddicts in a few hours. The Brothers Grimsby and 10 Cloverfield Lane are the films on the docket, with our final segment centering on a specific Blu-ray pick from me and Anderson’s streaming choice of week. Our giveaway this week is a Hotel Transylvania 2 Dracula cape I received at the press junket.
Hitting theaters March 18, The Bronze centers on Hope Ann Gregory (Melissa Rauch), an Olympic gymnast who desperately clings on to her glory days and still lives in her dad’s (Gary Cole) basement in Amherst, Ohio. Vulgar and brazen to the core, Hope’s life may take a positive turn when she coaches a new gymnastic prodigy (Haley Lu Richardson).
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!!
I actually haven’t seen Olympus Has Fallen, but after watching London Has Fallen this week with Anderson, I’m definitely adding it to my 1000 movies list for 2016. We’re taping episode 9 of CinemAddicts today, and I’m sure we’ll have highly different opinions of the movie.
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.
