Second Opinion – Wish I Was Here (2014)

22 September 2014 5:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wish I Was Here, 2014.

Directed by Zach Braff.

Starring Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Joey King, Pierce Gagnon, Josh Gad, Ashley Greene, Donald Faison, Michael Weston, James Avery, and Jim Parsons.


When 35 year old Aidan Bloom finds out his Father is dying of cancer it sets him on a journey of self-discovery.

It was never going to be an easy feat to follow up the superb debut that was Garden State, but with Wish I Was Here Zach Braff proves that he’s not a one hit wonder. Braff plays Aidan Bloom, a 35 year old out of work actor who relies on his wife to pay the bills and his father to pay for his children’s tuition. On the surface he’s woefully unlikeable in his selfishness, but he has a charm about him that makes him endearing despite his flaws. Upon finding out that his father »

Music in Film: Wish I Was Here & Guardians Of The Galaxy

19 September 2014 1:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Wish I Was Here, Boyhood and Guardians Of The Galaxy take a mixtape approach to their soundtracks. Ivan looks at what makes them so great...

"You gotta hear this one song. It'll change your life, I swear," a girl (Sam) in a doctor's waiting room once said to a boy (Andrew) who looked a lot like Zach Braff. Then, she placed a pair of headphones over his ears and played him The Shins.

Garden State's soundtrack became a must-have for all fans in 2004 thanks to its effective use - and curation - of indie artists, acoustic ditties and mild electronica. It was an album that showed a jukebox soundtrack (traditionally the territory of Tarantino) could do something different, whether that was introducing people to obscure bands they hadn't heard of or connecting you with others who also liked the movie's music.

10 years later, filmmakers are still chasing the same thing: the ultimate mixtape. »

The Shins' give new song 'So Now What' to Zach Braff's new film 'Wish I Was Here'

20 June 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Shins have a great tune "So Says I," but now it's time for a hazy "So Now What." The indie rockers -- who have been curbed more recently as James Mercer has pursued other musics with Danger Mouse in their project Broken Bells -- contributed the new tune to Zach Braff's "Wish I Were Here" film, which went the crowd-funding route last year. As you'll remember, Natalie Portman famously put headphones on Braff's head to the tune of The Shins "New Slang" in the former "Scrubs" star's directorial debut "Garden State" (2004). "It'll change your life, I swear," her character Sam says. Well, it certainly did change the band life of The Shins. So the circle of life continues. "Wish I Was Here" also has new songs from the likes of Bon Iver, Coldplay and Cat Power, plus previously released songs from The Head and the Heart and Hozier. »

Zach Braff's 'Wish I Was Here' Soundtrack Features New Songs By Coldplay, The Shins, Bon Iver & More

18 June 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Get your iPods ready (do people still use those?) as Zach Braff is back. The "Garden State" writer/director is ready to bring some twee dramedy flavor to your summer with his Kickstarter funded "Wish I Was Here," and certainly, some of that cash must have gone to securing some of these artists, because the line-up of new songs he's managed to score is pretty impressive. Hell, folks at major studios aren't even putting in this kind of effort, so hats off to Braff. Among those contributing new tunes to his movie include Coldplay and Cat Power who team up (!) to deliver the title song, professional sad sack Bon Iver who contributes "Heavenly Father," and "So Now What" by the life-changing The Shins (you can hear part of that song in the recent trailer). Elsewhere, Braff manages to secure a Paul Simon jam, that other Bon Iver track that everyone has heard by now, »

Elizabeth Wurtzel’s The Bachelor Recap: All the Promises Will Be Broken

4 February 2014 7:40 AM, PST | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

Elizabeth Wurtzel’s The Bachelor Recap: All the Promises Will Be Broken Nothing feels more like escape than to go back on your word By Elizabeth Wurtzel It’s time for another season of The Bachelor, America’s pre-eminent reality show for romantic group dates, high-profile rejections, crying pharmaceutical saleswomen, and rendering the phrase “true love” utterly meaningless through ceaseless repetition. This season, we have asked Elizabeth Wurtzel, author of Prozac Nation and Bitch, to confront our favorite national circus nightmare. Join Elizabeth each Tuesday for all the squabbling and hot-tubbing that’s fit to air on ABC.  Tonight we'll be free/ All the promises will be broken. So exudes Bruce Springsteen in the bridge of "Thunder Road," the triumphant track that opens his 1975 breakthrough album Born To Run. It is a song so exuberant, it has been covered by both Phish and Badly Drawn Boy, [...] »

Universal Announces Release Dates For 'Despicable Me 3,' A New 'Grinch' & An Untitled Garth Jennings Animated Project

15 January 2014 2:56 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a press release issued today about Universal's slate of upcoming animated movies produced by Illumination Entertainment, we got word on when the already announced "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and the properly assumed "Despicable Me 3" would hit theaters nationwide. But they also announced an untitled project for 2016, one that is infinitely more interesting than either of these projects—an animated feature written and directed by Garth Jennings, who was responsible (alongside frequent creative partner Nick Goldsmith) for some of the more unforgettable videos in recent memory—bands such as Radiohead, Blur, Pulp, Badly Drawn Boy, Beck, Hot Chip, Supergrass, R.E.M.—as well as big-screen vehicles "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and "Son of Rambow." Color us intrigued.Not much is known about the project (you can read the annoyingly cryptic synopsis below), although it should be known that this is the first big-screen project »
