I checked out Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets a couple of weeks ago and, if you’re into visually immersive cinema, it’s worth checking out a second time. Though many summer films end up being an uninspired cash grab, Valerian lives on a much higher creative plane thanks to a myriad of factors. Of course, we must start with director Luc Besson . . .
Episode 71 has Anderson Cowan and I discussing July films we’re itching to see. Cowan chimes in on Okja (currently streaming on Netflix) and I offer up my reviews of ‘War for the Planet of the Apes,’ ‘Person to Person,’ and ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ (this review is mini-embargoed – details below!).
CinemAddicts co-host Anderson Cowan has previously praised the Michael Cuesta directed flick L.I.E., stating it’s the first feature that introduced him to the wonders of Paul Dano. I still haven’t seen L.I.E. but will have to check that out before locking and loading for American Assassin. The red band trailer for AA, along with a slew of just released character posters and details on the movie is below!!!
Our latest CinemAddicts Blu-ray giveaway is my Blu-ray review copies of Altitude (Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Liddell, Denise Richards) and Where The Buffalo Roam (Bill Murray, Peter Boyle). The disc will only have been viewed once so they should be in good condition. Entry details below!!
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.
I’m giving away my Blu-ray review copy of Criterion’s GHOST WORLD. This Terry Zwigoff/Daniel Clowes collaboration is absolutely supreme imo (w/ great work from Scarlett Johansson, Thora Birch, and especially Steve Buscemi). Entry details below and trust me you want to get in on this one!!
I briefly mentioned on this week’s CinemAddicts (Ep. 71) that I was looking forward to seeing Wonder Woman (Anderson, who’s not exactly a comic book enthusiasts, doesn’t plan on seeing it unless he loses a bet on The Film Vault). I checked out the movie this week and my review is below!
Anderson Cowan, aka the director of Groupers, and myself are back with our monthly show and as Cowan promised, it’s a longer one than usual. I know this doesn’t make up for our weekly input, but check out this week’s show and a brief overview below!!
Hello fellow cinephiles! Sorry I’ve been horrible at posting a Giveaway the last week, but to make up for it I’m offering my Bl-ray review copy of Split and A Dog’s Purpose! Entry details below!!
