Only The Brave (2017) – Review

19 October 2017 7:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s yet another “inspired by true events” film , just in time for the somber Fall season. Somber, the right word for this one. Unlike this weekend’s other non-fiction flicks, it’s set in the not too distant past, not decades ago, but in this decade, the 2010’s. It concerns a group of men who regularly risk their lives, and often make the ultimate sacrifice, in order to protect their fellow men. And it shines a light on the families that must stay behind and hope that all goes well. You may be thinking that’s it’s another those on the front line, our soldiers overseas sagas as in the films The Hurt Locker and American Sniper. Well, these heroes aren’t on foreign soil, though they are on the front line, one made of flame. And with their special clothing and gear ,they could be mistaken for soldiers. »

15 September 2017 7:58 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"When this thing sweeps over you, it's going to feel like the end of the world." Sony has debuted a second trailer for the film Only the Brave, telling the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots firefighters. Directed by Tron Legacy's Joe Kosinski, Only the Brave is about an elite crew of firemen from Prescott, Arizona who battled a wildfire in Yarnell, Az in June of 2013 that claimed the lives of 19 of their members. The huge cast includes Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, Geoff Stults, Andie MacDowell, Ben Hardy, Taylor Kitsch, and Jennifer Connelly. This was titled Granite Mountain Hotshots before being changed to Only the Brave. With so many more dangerous wildfires ablaze right now, I'm not sure if this is good timing or bad timing, but it does seem like this has a positive message. Here's the second official trailer for Joseph Kosinski's Only the Brave, »

Josh Brolin Fights Fires In New Trailer For ‘Only The Brave’ [Watch]

13 September 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Of all the movies hitting the fall, the one that makes us feel the most ‘oh yeah, that’s apparently a movie that exists’ is “Only The Brave.” Telling the true (and suddenly and grimly topical after the devastating wildfires on the West Coast)story of the Yamell Hill Fire in June 2013, we can only imagine that one of the reasons it doesn’t stick in our heads is because it’s gone through about five title changes, it was originally called “No Exit,” then “Granite Mountain,” then “Granite Mountain Hotshots,” before circling all the way back round to something generic like “Only The Brave.”

Nevertheless, the film, about the Arizona fire that claimed the life of 19 firefighters four years back, has the kind of cast that you’d think we might recall — Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, Taylor Kitsch, Jennifer Connelly, Geoff Stults, Ben Hardy, »

‘Get Shorty’: Why Chris O’Dowd Is Uncomfortable With Violence, But Fine With Mocking Hollywood

27 July 2017 9:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Get Shorty” might be about Hollywood, but is it a satire? Star Chris O’Dowd thinks so.

“Poking fun at truth is satire,” he said. “Us trying to extricate those things that we find ridiculous about Hollywood and putting them on film satirizes it. But we don’t have to fake it.”

The Epix original drama, the first three episodes of which can be watched online now, is “inspired by” the Elmore Leonard novel and subsequent Barry Sonnenfeld film. But, a la “Fargo,” the show has put its own spin on the material, creating the character of Miles (O’Dowd), a gangster who decides to pursue a new path in life after getting a taste of the Hollywood scene.

‘The Big Sick’ Review

26 July 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Ray Romano, Holly Hunter, Anupam Kher | Written by Emily V. Gordon, Kumail Nanjiani | Directed by Michael Showalter

Michael Showalter, best known as an actor and writer on the Wet Hot American Summer TV series, directs this gentle culture clash comedy, based on the real-life experiences of (screenwriters) Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley).

We meet Kumail (Nanjiani) and Emily (Zoe Kazan) around 18 months before the latter is put in a coma. He’s a stand-up in a run-down comedy club; she’s a Psychology student. More of a meet-awkward than a meet-cute, his chat-up lines are cheesy and she’s kinda goofy. They hit it off, and we get the standard highlights reel from the next few months of their relationship.

Then Emily discovers a box of photos of other women. These are the potential wives chosen for Kumail by his Muslim parents. »
