Update: Movies To See In 2014

Thursday, June 12th, 2014


2013 has come and gone and my thoughts on the best movies of last year can be seen here. Now it’s 2014 it’s another year for great movies; here is a list of movies I’m most looking forward to seeing and can only hope they don’t let me down. I didn’t forget the big ones that may appear on a lot of lists (X-men: Days of Future Past, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America), I might even watch them; they just didn’t end up on my radar.

What are you warming up to see? Shout out in the comments below.

UPDATE: I’ve gone ahead and added the trailers for the unreleased movies and shared my thoughts on the movies that have come and gone already. Was I right to anticipate these titles? Let me know in the comments.

First LABOR DAY Image or Any Excuse To Talk About Kate Winslet

Thursday, August 8th, 2013


My lady and I have an understanding; I get to have a healthy obsession for Kate Winslet and she gets to go on Pinterest while I’m watching Real Time with Bill Maher.  Thankfully I get to work on this here website where I can also post any and all Kate Winslet news, so here we have the first image of her upcoming film Labor Day.  Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) wrote and directed the movie based on the novel Labor Day by Joyce Maynard.

Set in 1987 over the late summer holiday weekend, Labor Day opens with divorced, depressed single mom Adele clothes shopping with her 13-year-old son, Henry. They encounter a large, fearsome man — who also happens to be bleeding badly. He asks for a ride, and against all judgment, they give him one. As police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story and their options become more and more limited.

It will be interesting to see how Reitman handles a character drama/thriller like this, could be a refreshing turn for the great director.  The film will also involves flashback and flashforwards, with Tobey Maguire playing the grown-up version of the young boy.  The film also stars Gattlin Griffith, J.K. Simmons, Clark Gregg, and James Van Der Beek.

Labor Day opens in limited release on December 25th before expanding wide on January 31st.

FYI: My favorite Winslet roles are Little Children, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Revolutionary Road, and Contagion.
