‘The Wedding Ringer’ Blu-ray Review

5 July 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Affion Crockett, Jorge Garcia, Dan Gill, Corey Holcomb, Ken Howard, Colin Kane, Cloris Leachman, Mimi Rogers, Aaron Takahashi, Olivia Thirlby | Written by Jeremy Garelick, Jay Lavender | Directed by Jeremy Garelick

Confession time. I’m not the biggest Kevin Hart fan. I don’t mind the actor/comedian in small doses – a supporting actor in films such as the remake of Death at a Funeral and the Scary Movie franchise, but  I can’t sit through any of his stand-up shows in there entirety and the last movie hes was the “star” of, Ride Along, was – frankly – awful. However I am always willing to give Hart’s film a go – especially when they look, albeit from the trailer, as hilarious as The Wedding Ringer.

And I’m happy to report The Wedding Ringer is not only a fantastic bro-mance flick (yes, they Do exist »

Cinema's Hidden Pearls -- Part II

Cinema’s Hidden Pearls – Part II

By Alex Simon

One of nature’s rarest items, a pearl is produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. Truly flawless pearls are infrequently produced in nature, and as a result, the pearl has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable.

Hidden pearls exist in the world of movies, as well: films that, in spite of being brilliantly crafted and executed, never got the audience they deserved beyond a cult following.

Here are a few more of our favorite hidden pearls in the world of film:

Leslie Mann, Kat Dennings Join The Croods 2

22 May 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

DreamWorks Animation is expanding the voice cast for The Croods 2, its upcoming sequel to the 2013 animated hit, with news that Leslie Mann (This is 40) and Kat Dennings (Thor: The Dark World) will lend their voices to new characters.

Mann will portray the matriarch of an upscale family that winds up in a rivalry with the titular caveman family and their human companion. Dennings, meanwhile, will play the frustrated daughter of that new family, who yearns to hunt but is consistently suppressed by her “civilized” parents.

The key players are all back for this follow-up, including Nicolas Cage as the Croods’ patriarch Grug, Catherine Kenner as mother Ugga, feisty daughter Eep (Emma Stone), luggish son Thunk (Clark Duke), ferocious grandma Gran (Cloris Leachman) and Ryan Reynolds as human companion Guy. Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders are once again writing and directing.

In the Evening of the Day: Thom Andersen’s "The Thoughts That Once We Had"

8 May 2015 1:19 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

“Yet if you should forget me for a whileAnd afterwards remember, do not grieveFor if the darkness and corruption leaveA vestige of the thoughts that once we hadBetter by far you should forget and smileThan that you should remember and be sad.”—Christina Rossetti, Remember (1862)An opening title card from director Thom Andesen’s new feature film, The Thoughts That Once We Had, directly identifies the cinematic writings of philosopher Gilles Deleuze as the project's primary subject and inspiration. Deleuze’s two volumes on film, Cinema 1: The Movement-Image (1983) and Cinema 2: The Time-Image (1985), are today synonymous with a certain modernist school of thought that, while integrated in academia to such a degree as to be all but understood, remains quite radical. Unquestionably dense and provocatively pedantic, the French empiricist’s filmic texts integrate an array of theories and conceptualizations into a fairly delineated taxonomy, and are therefore fairly conducive »

The Wedding Ringer – The Blu Review

20 April 2015 9:03 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“These guys can not be my groomsmen. It looks like the entire cast of Goonies grew up and became rapists!”

When Jim Batts reviewed The Wedding Ringer here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote: “…….First time feature director Jeremy Garelik tries to give the flick a frenzied pace by quickly cutting in for close-ups constantly, which never exhilarates, but merely exhausts the viewer. Every bit of business is hammered home, with little room for characterization. Subtlety? No way! No time! Got to get to the next big “gut-buster”…..(read all of Jim’s review Here)

I didn’t see The Wedding Ringer when it played theatrically, but after catching up with it on Blu-ray, I’d have to say I liked it a bit better than Jim did, but of course I watched it at home as opposed to a theater full of people who may or may have not been laughing. »

‘Girl Meets World’ Season 2 Sets May Premiere

8 April 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Girl Meets World” fans don’t have to wait too long for the return of Riley, Cory and the rest of the gang.

Disney Channel has set Monday, May 11, for the season-two premiere of “Boy Meets World” spinoff “Girl Meets World,” Variety has learned. As an additional treat, one new episode of the show will debut each night May 12-15, totaling five new episodes throughout the week.

The May 15 episode will likely especially intrigue “Boy Meets World” fans, as it marks the return of Cory Matthews’ brother Eric. Will Friedle will make his first guest appearance on the show on that episode.

The season premiere, which guest stars Cloris Leachman, follows Riley and Maya as they embark on a new year at John Quincy Adams Middle School and are eager to transfer out of Cory’s class. The change, however, doesn’t offer the excitement and independence they hoped it would. »

StreamFix: 5 Essential Movie Parodies on Netflix Now

3 March 2015 6:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While romcoms and black comedies may have more sophisticated plots, satires are the films that guarantee us the most laughs. Sometimes you want permission to laugh at movies rather than with them, and satires remind you that familiar movie conventions are strange and sometimes hilarious.  We just noticed that one of our all-time favorite Mel Brooks movies has hit Netflix, so without further ado, let's celebrate this nutty genre. "Airplane!": Insanity at 20,000 Feet The bawdy sight gags and astounding one-liners of "Airplane!" run together in a nonstop medley, but I'd like to point out another highpoint of this disaster satire: You can't pick a single Mvp in the ensemble. Every actor is perfectly cast and perfectly effing weird. Robert Hays is stone-eyed and slyly ridiculous. Julie Hagerty is a wide-eyed cuckoo. Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen, Stephen StuckerBarbara Billingsley, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and even Maureen McGovern (as the singing nun, »
