Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see all the movies this week, so click HERE to see what critics thought of Ocean’s 8, HERE to see what they thought of Hotel Artemis, and HERE to read about Won’t You Be My Neighbor. My buddy Kristin Lonergan got FREE PASSES to see the Fred Rogers documentary from my website, and wrote this review:
“Mister Rogers’ message never changed. No matter the decade, no matter the daily news headline, Mister Rogers was true to the belief that each one of us is special. We each hold the power of love and to be loved, no matter what. You can see it on the faces of those who knew him best, he walked the walk. You can’t help feel hopeful and completely capable after you see this documentary. He was universally kind and genuine.”
Dang it, I need to see that movie! Please watch the MOVIE MINUTE below and subscribe to my YouTube channel. My kids still pick on me for having so few subscribers!

TRAILER PORN: “Midnight Special”

I saw a movie called Take Shelter in 2011, and it rocked my world. It starred Michael Shannon and was directed by Jeff Nichols, and I remember how chills ran up and down my legs as it ended. Take Shelter ended up being my #1 movie of 2011 and I’ve been watching Jeff Nichols ever since.

I can’t tell you how excited I was to hear about his latest project, Midnight Special. It once again stars Michael Shannon and appears to be about a boy with special powers. I know that sounds stupid, but Nichols has the ability to take strange and simple stories and turn them into something beautiful. Add the fact that Adam Driver is also in this and…well, I’m pretty much climbing the walls over it.

Take a look at the brand new trailer while I go try to rein in my expectations. Midnight Special opens March 18th.

TRAILER PORN: “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” (I Hate Myself For LOVING This)

I can’t say that I loved the first Neighbors movie. In fact, you can click HERE to listen to my review from KRLD, where I gave it a B-. I thought it was funny, though raunchy as Hell, and I certainly never thought they’d find an excuse to make a Neighbors 2. Well, they have and I’ll be damned if it doesn’t look even funnier than the first one. Take a look at the trailer below and remember that Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising will be in theaters May 20th. I promise to try my hardest to get free passes to this one.

TRAILER PORN: “Krampus” Is Coming!

I thought Krampus was a joke when I first heard about him. The old German legend about an anti-Santa who came for the BAD kids seemed too deliciously warped to even be true. Then I saw the demented depictions of him and…well, it was love at first sight. I can’t WAIT until the holidays roll around each year so I can post pictures of Krampus, like this one.

You can imagine how excited I was to hear they were making a Krampus movie, but I was apprehensive as well. Could they make something that was scary AND a little funny, like the Krampus legend itself? The cast list hints that they HAVE, with talented actors like Toni Collette and Allison Tolman paired with funny guys, Adam Scott and David Koecher. I’ve watched the trailer at least 15 times though and STILL can’t decide if it looks good. I guess we’ll have to wait until December 4th to find out but until then, check out the trailer below and tell me what YOU think.

TRAILER PORN: “The Big Short” Looks Insanely Good!

I just got the trailer for the movie The Big Short and about peed my pants. Don’t ask questions, just watch this:

OK, I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for any trailer that uses Led Zeppelin but seriously…how great does this movie look? The Big Short will have a limited release starting December 11th and opens wide on December 23rd. It’s based on Michael Lewis’ New York Times #1 Best Seller The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine. You can buy it on Amazon by clicking HERE, if you want to read it before the movie comes out. I’ll do everything I can to get free passes for us too. Hey, that’ll be my Christmas present to you!

NEW MOVIE TRAILER: Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt in “By the Sea”

The trailer for Angelina Jolie’s latest movie By the Sea looks…well, GRIM is an understatement. Not that Jolie (who wrote and directed this AND stars in it with Brad Pitt) likes upbeat material to begin with. She directed Unbroken last year, with all those agonizing torture scenes, and In the Land of Blood and Honey in 2011. She also wrote that one and I really liked it, even though it was also a bummer of collosal proportions. Now we have By the Sea opening November 13th, which might also be a strange form a couple’s therapy for Brangelina. Take a look at the trailer, then please send Angelina Jolie a cute kitten picture or a funny animal video to cheer her up. Maybe the one with the screaming goats?

TEASER TRAILER- The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

OK, so I was pretty disappointed in Mockingjay Part 1 but it’s hard to NOT get a little excited when you watch this. Still have to wait until November 20th to see it, but you can get alerts from Fandango about buying early tickets by clicking HERE.
Oh, and (sniff) Philip Seymour Hoffman? Wasn’t prepared to see him.
