CoF Weekend Preview: THE MASTER Is Playing Somewhere

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview, here is a look at what’s opening this weekend.  You might have noticed a few goodies this week like our Fall & Holiday Movie Guide, Kevin’s The Review and if you’re hanging around on weekends I’ll be dropping another Sunday Soundtrack.

The MasterRT (86%) – TrailerCoF

The Master expands on September 21st but will be playing in a few places this weekend so I figured I would give it the top spot as an excuse to look at Joaquin Phoenix’s face up there.  Look at it, he’s just so happy to be taking pictures.  I wish I loved anything as much as he loves taking pictures.  Oh yes, this movie is getting rave reviews (obviously) and I’ll post a review once I see it (twice).

Finding Nemo 3DRT (99%) – Trailer

This movie broke records at the box office as well as on home video.  So who’s going to go see this again and in 3D?  (Ed. Note: As I typed that, I was making a “I don’t get it” face.)

Resident Evil: RetributionRT (22%) – Trailer

This is why:

Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master will be screening the film in 70mm today at 7:30 PM in Austin, TX  (The Alamo Drafthouse Ritz).  Those lucky souls will be treated to something great no doubt, and lucky for the rest of us there is a new clip from the much anticipated movie.

This clip is very NSFW (get headphones) and shows Joaquin Phoenix taking aNavy psychological examination. The Master has been gaining a lot of postive buzz, so much so that the jury at the Venice Film Festival who liked the movie so much, they ran out of awards to give it (seriously).

The film also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams.  It opens in limited release September 14th and expands on September 21st.  Watch the clip below:

Clip From THE MASTER: “She Wrote Me a Letter”

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

the-masterI’m not usually one to post clips, but the anticipation for The Master is actually making me lose sleep.  OK maybe that’s too much, but this clip is great anyways.  The one and only I will watch and likely share, you have to go in fresh right?  See my article – FOCUS: Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER.

The quality of this film is outstanding; everything from the performances just in trailers and this clip alone to the 70mm hype and style of the picture.  What a beautiful score we have here too.

The Master opens on September 14.

A striking portrait of drifters and seekers in post World War II America, Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master unfolds the journey of a Naval veteran (Joaquin Phoenix) who arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future — until he is tantalized by The Cause and its charismatic leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman).

Synopsis: The bad-guy character in a classic game who longs to be a hero brings trouble to his entire arcade after sneaking into a new first-person shooter game and unleashing a deadly enemy.
Director: Rich Moore
Stars: John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Sarah SilvermanAnalysis: Why hasn’t this idea been done already? It has so much potential with the inside jokes and nostalgia that we all want to see, or it won’t not do it enough so it needs a sequel. Let’s just hope they reference Iron Tank, best game ever.
