If About Alex seems a little too much like an unofficial remake of The Big Chill, that’s the point. The drama centers around a group of estranged friends from college who are reunited at a country house when one of their schoolmates attempts suicide. It even opens with a scene involving a bath, followed by a montage introducing all the characters in their present grown-up worlds. And, of course, the guy who slits his wrists here is also named Alex. The main difference, though, is that he doesn’t die. The others aren’t in town for his funeral, therefore, but rather just to be with him for his recovery. Where the movie is similar to its 1983 inspiration and where it’s different is significant to what it says about today’s generation of post-grad people on the cusp of being thirty-something. The ensemble gathered for this Alex (Jason Ritter) includes types who parallel the characters »

In Lawrence Kasdan's The Big Chill a group of thirtysomethings are drawn together when Alex, one of their friends, commits suicide. Once idealistic college students of the late 1960s, the group has now become successful adults of the 1980s. Sam (Tom Berenger) is now an actor. Harold (Kevin Kline) owns a chain of shoe stores and his wife Sarah (Glenn Close) is a doctor. Karen (JoBeth Williams) is the wife of an ad executive, Meg (Mary Kay Place) is a lawyer, Michael (Jeff Goldblum) is a writer for People magazine and Nick (William Hurt) has found success...as a drug dealer.
Along with Alex's younger girlfriend Chloe (Meg Tilly), the group spends the weekend at Harold and Sarah's house. They wax nostalgic for the past, lament about the present and voice uncertainty about their future. They argue, joke around with one another, drink, get high, have sex (some of »

I love me some Tom Berenger behind a rifle scope. Remember 1993′s “Sniper”? That movie launched a franchise, though if you don’t partake in the direct-to-dvd movie market, you may not have known that. I did, and I’ve seen all of the “Sniper” movies, including 2002′s pretty good “Sniper 2″ and the equally pretty good “Sniper 3″ in 2004. Seven years later, we got the not-at-all-bad but unfortunately Tom Berenger-less “Sniper: Reloaded.” Although Berenger didn’t show up for “Reloaded,” his co-star from the original “Sniper,” Billy Zane, did. That film also introduced Chad Michael Collins as the son of Berenger’s character, who is also a sniper just like dear ol dad. The latest is “Sniper: Legacy,” which teams Collins and Berenger as father-and-son, thus bringing, I guess, the franchise full-circle. Or some such. The point, is it’s Tom Berenger back behind a rifle scope shooting fools! »
Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week
"Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery"
What's It About? David Lynch's two season TV series had viewers riveted to figure out who killed the beaming blonde homecoming queen Laura Palmer. And maybe, just maybe, some of us fell a little in love with Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), the curious FBI agent sent to investigate Laura's murder while enjoying many damn fine cups of coffee.
Why We're In: This ten-disc set comes with both seasons of "Twin Peaks," as well as the movie "Fire Walk With Me," plenty of featurettes, and deleted scenes (!!!!) from the beloved TV series. Not that we'll ever really know what happened in the strange little town of Twin Peaks, Wa.

24 years after Tremors hit theaters, did you actually think you were safe at last from those pesky graboids? Think again – a remake of the beloved horror comedy still has a pulse and is actually ramping up for production sooner than we had thought. Not that we were asking for one, but it might be fun to revisit the premise with more modern special effects, trading out Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward for two modern-day comedians (anyone else want Key and Peele to take this?).
Recently, Don Michael Smith posted the following to his blog, indicating that Universal is keen on the remake:
Hey all you “Company Of Heroes” fans, I’m back in Sofia, Bulgaria getting ready to do another in the series. This one’s called “The Fourth Reich” and it promises to have more of the same only better. For all you out there that hated on the first movie, »

The Ultimate Slumber Party
There are certain films that capture the zeitgeist of an era, and The Big Chill is definitely one of them. If a movie like, say, Annie Hall, hits the nail on the head of urban relationships in the late 70s, then Chill embraces the Baby Boomers’ angst of adulthood in the early 80s—a time when the partying and discoing Carter years were undoubtedly over and we, in the USA, were solidly entrenched in Reagan’s world of hippies-turned-yuppies. The Big Chill is a love letter to the Baby Boomers, as it explores themes of regret over wasted opportunities, friendship and camaraderie, nostalgia, and the eternal question of what-happens-next.
Director and co-writer Kasdan, in a recent video interview (included as an extra on the disk), states that one of his influences for the picture was Jean Renoir’s 1939 classic, The Rules of the Game, »

This is the trailer for a melodramatic looking movie called Reach Me. The film features an ensemble cast, and the story follows a group of people who end up all being connected by a self-help book written by a mysterious author. I guess one of the best films to compare this to would be Paul Haggis' Oscar winning movie Crash.
The film was written and directed by John Herzfeld (2 Days in the Valley), and he crammed a lot of stories into one movie. The movie is set to be released on October 24th, and it definitely looks interesting.

The film brings together plenty of stars and genres, with multiple overlapping storylines and characters. It also features quite a line-up of talent including Sylvester Stallone, Kyra Sedgwick, Thomas Jane, Kevin Connolly, Tom Berenger, Terry Crews, Danny Aiello, Nelly and Lauren Cohan.
Check out the first footage, which follows a group of people all linked by a self-help book published by reclusive football coach.
Reach Me is an uplifting ensemble comedy/drama about a dozen fractured characters whose lives intertwine and eventually collide as a result of a self-published motivational book and its anonymous author.
It’s been a long time since Sylvester Stallone tackled a “serious” drama, but The Expendables star is set to give it another go with Reach Me, a movie which also stars Terry Crews, Kelsey Grammer, Thomas Jane, Kevin Connolly, Kyra Sedgwick, Ryan Kwanten, Tom Berenger, Tom Sizemore, Cary Elwes and Nelly.
Comparisons have been made to Crash, though based on this trailer, Reach Me – which follows a group of troubled people who come together after reading a self-help book written by a mysterious author – looks more like a B-Movie version of that type of film which would be better suited being released straight to DVD!

Today we have a trailer for the upcoming "Reach Me" drama that stars Sylvester Stallone, Thomas Jane, Kyra Sedgwick, Kevin Connolly, Tom Berenger, Terry Crews, Danny Aiello, Kelsey Grammer, Tom Sizemore, Ryan Kwanten, Cary Elwes, and Nelly. Check it out below. Plot: The story follows a group of people who all have a connection to a self-help book authored by a reclusive former football coach. "Reach Me" is written and directed by John Herzfeld (2 Days in the Valley) and is set to hit theaters on October 24th. Removed at the request of the producers. »
"You're a finger painting! Be a masterpiece!" Stranger words have never been mush-mouthed by Sylvester Stallone. I am genuinely baffled by the trailer for "Reach Me," a strange new film with an eclectic cast and a preposterous premise. It looks like "Crash" for the self-help industry, an idea that makes my skin full-on crawl. Updated: The trailer that was originally attached to this story was not, technically speaking, a trailer. While we were not the first to post it, when we were contacted by the film's producers, we took down our copy. It turns out that this was a sales reel cut solely to help raise money during production. In our original version of this story, we mentioned that this is a Millennium Films release, and while that's true, they did not produce it. Our opinion of the sales reel remains, but until there is an actual finished trailer available, »

The trailer for Reach Me makes the movie seem to have a few too many identities crammed into the frame; as a baseline it comes across like Paul Haggis’ Crash mixed with Dianetics. The ensemble cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Terry Crewes, Kelsey Grammer, Thomas Jane, Kevin Connolly, Kyra Sedgwick, Ryan Kwanten, Tom Berenger, Tom Sizemore, Cary Elwes […]

Trailer below for an upcoming dramedy titled "Reach Me," featuring an ensemble cast that includes Lauren Cohan, Sylvester Stallone, Kyra Sedgwick, Cary Elwes, Terry Crews, Thomas Jane, Nelly, Omari Hardwick, Tom Sizemore, Tom Berenger, Kelsey Grammer, and Danny Trejo. Written and directed by John Herzfeld, the film's story follows a group of people that all have a connection to a self-help book written by a reclusive former football coach. This was a project that ran out of funding before shooting ended, when one of its financial backers backed out, which led to director Herzfeld, star Stallone and producers Cassian Elwes, and Rebekah Chany, to crowdfunding »

As a general rule, I’m a big believer in cinema moving forward. It’s vital for an artform to constantly renew and reinvigorate itself, in order to remain interesting and avoid stagnation. That’s why bold and visionary filmmakers are so important. To date, the writer and director of Reach Me – John Herzfeld – has been neither of those things (2 Days In The Valley, anyone?), but the new trailer for his latest movie suggests a move in a new, more intriguing direction.
The film is about a large collection of characters and their respective connections to a self-help book – titled ‘Reach Me’ – written by a reclusive author, played by Tom Berenger. Now, here’s the thing – it would seem that while this film represents the all-important forward motion for helmer Herzfeld, it may also prove to be the opposite for many in its cast – and that’s just fine.
