Get a Bad Case of the Mondays at Office Space Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

25 June 2017 6:39 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“If they move my desk again I’m quitting”

“I’m going to need you to come in on Saturday, and also come in on Sunday too”

“Are you related to the Michael Bolton?”

“Oh, and remember: next Friday… is Hawaiian shirt day. So, you know, if you want to, go ahead and wear a Hawaiian shirt and jeans.”

Office Space screens this Friday and Saturday nights (June 30th and July 1st) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’  Midnight series.

There are so many famous quotes from Office Space!

If you are working for a big company, especially if you are in software business, you will find yourself in Office Space, an irreverent comedy from 1999 starring Ron Livingston and Jennifer Aniston that makes fun of the inanities of work–particularly in a cubicle-ed office where the bosses are morons (not that »

Netflix Original Movie Review: Shimmer Lake Is a Backwards Tour de Force

15 June 2017 10:07 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Told backwards, Shimmer Lake is the kind of crime drama that very much revels in keeping it's audience in the dark. There is no hand holding here. No re-explaining things that the audience might miss. This film, from first time director Oren Uziel, is the kind of calling card that has been used to launch careers, like that of Quentin Tarantino.

In order to describe this film, the plot must be kept deceptively simple. First of all, telling this story backwards only serves to underscore what we are seeing on screen. By dint of the fact that we want to know why a scene is starting the way that it is, and the shock we feel when it ends abruptly, is palpable throughout this entire film. Not only is this story told backwards, it is is also told over the course of a week. It follows a local sheriff trying »

Peter Farrelly on Learning to Love TV, Plus His Big Move Into Feature Drama — With Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen

12 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There’s something about Peter Farrelly. The filmmaker, mostly known for feature comedies, is trying out a few new things this year.

Those shifts including separate moves into both television – where Farrelly and his brother Bob have rarely played – and dramatic film. At At&T’s Audience Network, Farrelly is behind the upcoming comedy “Loudermilk,” starring Ron Livingston as a cranky recovering alcoholic.

But Farrelly’s move into TV doesn’t mean he’s turning his back on the big screen. “I’m actually doing a film in the fall with Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali,” Farrelly told an audience at the Atx Television Festival, where “Loudermilk” was screening. “Green Book,” with Oscar winner Ali and Mortensen  in the lead roles, is currently being prepped.

“It’s based on a thing that used to be called the ‘Negro Motorist’s Green Book,’ published from 1936 to 1966,” he said. “It was a »

Jason Reitman’s newest collaboration with Diablo Cody gets acquired by Focus Features

5 May 2017 4:15 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

A few years ago, filmmaker Jason Reitman could do no wrong. The man who made an impressive debut with Thank You For Smoking had followed it up with the Academy Award winning Juno and then the phenomenal Up in the Air, which for a brief moment was the Oscar frontrunner in Best Picture. Since then, Reitman’s movies have gotten a more mixed reception, between Young Adult, Labor Day, and the deeply divisive Men, Women, and Children. His films remain something to look forward to though, and his next one has found a home. Focus Features has announced that they’ve picked it up and will be putting it out next April. We’re less than a year out now from a new Reitman work. Fans should rejoice about that. His new movie is Tully, another collaboration with screenwriter Diablo Cody. Not a whole lot is known about it right now, »
