MY WEEK WITH MARILYN Hits theaters November 4, 2011 – Limited.

In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’. The film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams), who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Aurthur Miller (Dougray Scott).

Nearly 40 years on, his diary account The Prince, the Showgirl and Me was published, but one week was missing and this was published some years later as My Week with Marilyn – this is the story of that week. When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.

FOOTLOOSE

Release Date: October 14, 2011

Starring: Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Andie MacDowell and Dennis Quaid
Directed by: Craig Brewer

Writer/Director Craig Brewer (“Hustle & Flow,” “Black Snake Moan”) delivers a new take of the beloved 1984 classic film, “Footloose.” Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.

Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart.

Captain America The First Avenger Movie Review

Friday, July 22nd, 2011





Stronger and faster too! This has been an over the top summer movie season, easily one of the best in recent years. Blockbuster after blockbuster, this has been a very entertaining time at the cinema and it isn’t done yet per this next blockbuster. I honestly did not think this would carry the weight of an Iron Man or Thor or even Hulk. For starters, he doesn’t quite have the powers or abilities that these others do. The previews didn’t seem all that exciting either so I was not expecting much. Boy is it good to not expect much cause many times you are delighted with what you get. This movie blew me away with its simplicity and straightforwardness. This one really looks like a comic book come to life. The 40s look was impeccable, the story was just right, the cinematography was exceptional, the action was sharp, and the special effects were about as good as anything else you’ve ever seen.
