Interview: ‘Young Adult’ Director Jason Reitman on Open-Ended, Non-Message Directing

18 December 2011 1:58 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Instead of trying to fill giant shoes in the shadows of his legendary filmmaker father Ivan Reitman (“Ghostbusters”), Jason Reitman has been successfully blazing his own path of films without message that are designed to incite your thoughts and question your actions.

Following the Golden Globe-nominated “Thank You For Smoking,” Oscar-winning “Juno” (with writer Diablo Cody) and Oscar-nominated “Up in the Air,” Reitman’s second collab with Cody switches to the journey of a “Young Adult” who seemingly learns to change her wicked ways but fails to.

Jason Reitman defiantly poses for the HollywoodChicago.com lens on on Dec. 7, 2011 for “Young Adult”.

That, Jason Reitman says, is reality more often than not. He says people typically don’t make drastic improvements with themselves unless, for example, it’s part of a 12-step program. “Young Adult” stars Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson, »

The Change-up Blu-ray Review

12 December 2011 6:17 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

David Dobkin’s The Change-Up arrived earlier this year following a marketing campaign pitched at the level of an out-of-control air siren, made a couple of bucks at the box office, and was then promptly forgotten about until now, when the film hit DVD and Blu-ray.  Admit it:  you didn’t even remember this film came out this year until you saw the title of this review.  You probably didn’t bother seeing it in theaters, but if you did, you’ve blocked it from your memory.  Now that it’s available on home video, you’ve got the option of either A) reliving the magic, or B) seeing Dobkin’s film for the very first time.  Should you?  Find out after the jump, folks. Let’s get straight to it:  I really, really, really didn’t enjoy my time with The Change-Up.  It might be one of my least favorite films of the year. »
