Reach Me Review

16 November 2014 9:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s nothing worse than a feel-good crowd pleaser that doesn’t quite come together. A movie like Reach Me only aims to entertain by shooting directly for the heart, carried by a sweet message meant to leave audiences in an enlightened state. Negatively bashing such a blunder is like hating on a puppy or a kitten, something so sweet and innocent it can’t possibly be bad, right? Wrong. Reach Me is a mess of a film that wants to be the Pulp Fiction of life-altering comedies, but its colorful nature only provides momentary distractions from its lifeless, empty soul. Terrible performances, a haphazardly cobbled story, soap opera scripting – the only people Reach Me might save are future filmmakers, teaching them how Not to execute a complex story about multiple character arcs.

Reach Me is a story about a handful of people looking to turn their lives around, all »

My kind of movie – it’s filled by a lot of stars and actor Tom Sizemore!

A motivational book written by a mysterious man (Tom Berenger) goes viral and quickly gains popularity, inspiring a group of people that includes a journalist (Kevin Connolly), his editor (Sylvester Stallone), a former inmate (Kyra Sedgwick), a hip-hop mogul (Nelly), an actor (Cary Elwes) and an undercover cop (Thomas Jane) to re-evaluate their choices and decisions by confronting their fears in hopes of creating more positive lives.

Reach Me Trailer and Poster Starring Sylvester Stallone, Terry Crews, Thomas Jane, and the Rest of the 323 Area Code

24 September 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Wow.  Fifteen years after Paul Thomas Anderson's valley opus Magnolia, we get the Millenium Entertainment take on Altman-esque sprawl with Reach Me.  This film looks a bit out of its mind, but maybe it's in the service of some kind of mad genius.  All I know is it doesn't look boring, even though it seems to be in search of a consistent tone (it oscillates wildly between serious pathos and comic relief). I will indeed be seeing it. Hit the jump for the Reach Me trailer and poster.  The film was directed by John Herzfeld and stars Sylvester StalloneTom BerengerKevin Connolly,  Danny Trejo, Kyra SedgwickNellyCary ElwesThomas JaneTerry Crews, Danny Aiello, Kelsey Grammer, Lauren Cohan, Ryan Kwanten, as well as Tom Sizemore.

Sylvester Stallone And Tom Berenger Seek Motivation In Reach Me Trailer

24 September 2014 3:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s often times when you hear the mention of a particular filmmaker, and immediately recoil, as if the actual words have caused an indelible stain on your very soul. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that’s John Herzfield, because I quite enjoyed his 1996 ensemble caper, 2 Days In The Valley. But those with a more discerning and high cultural palette may not be interested to know, what has he been up to recently?

Reach Me is his latest affair with a starry cast – but has he learned from mistakes past? It’s hard to gauge his efficacy as a filmmaker from a brief trailer, so I’m gonna give him the benefit of the doubt. The basic premise concerns a large cast of characters, who all come into contact with a motivating self-help book called Reach Me. Penned by a reclusive author (Tom Berenger), the tome »
