Donald Glover Cast As Young Lando Calrissian In Upcoming Han Solo Star Wars Stand-Alone Film

17 hours ago

Hello, what have we here?

Lucasfilm announced today that Donald Glover, an acclaimed actor, award-winning writer, and Grammy-nominated artist, will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Glover will join Alden Ehrenreich — previously cast as Han Solo — in bringing two iconic Star Wars characters back to the big screen, but at a time in their lives previously unexplored. This new film depicts Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld — years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi.

“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us,” said Lord and Miller. “These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, »

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back – Review

21 October 2016 5:11 AM, PDT

Tom Cruise brings back his military action character Jack Reacher in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. With Edward Zwick directing, Cruise delivers his signature brand of action with little touches of humor and romance, in this second movie in what appears to be a franchise based on Lee Child’s action thriller books. Cruise’s return as Reacher should please his loyal fans, although other moviegoers will find little that stands out in this standard action film.

One thing that does offer a bit of fun is the movie’s setting, which is in New Orleans during Halloween instead of Mardi Gras and, in earlier scenes, in the little-seen side streets of Washington, D.C. away from the iconic Capitol buildings. »

Ouija: Origin Of Evil – Review

20 October 2016 10:52 PM, PDT

An Ouija board is meant to be a tool or toy, depending on how you view it, to communicate with the spirit world. It’s a device that conjures messages from the “magically moving” wooden or plastic planchette while participants nervously sit in a circle waiting to see if someone will reach out to them from the other side. Often in situations like this (trust me, I have tried this as a kid) you hunch over the board with scared friends and jump at the slightest noise that breaks the silence. So, even though the triangular guide didn’t move an inch, it was the silence that scared us. It’s the possibility that something could call out from the quiet stillness. It’s essentially the fear of communication, and unfortunately for Ouija: Origin Of Evil, it’s the over abundance of talking that kills the mood in this 60’s seance. »

Keeping Up With The Joneses – Review

20 October 2016 6:13 PM, PDT


How’d that beloved tune from the “pre-fab four” go? “Another Pleasant Valley Sunday, here in status-symbol land”. Well, they might’ve been crooning about the locale of this new comedy. Everybody’s lawn is perfect, right out of American Beauty. Maybe even “picture perfect”, but more than a bit dull. Some of the residents perhaps secretly hope that things will get shaken up a tad. Ah, be careful what you wish for, so goes the old saying. That’s what happened in the final John Belushi/Dan Aykroyd team-up in 1981, Neighbors. But instead of that off-kilter, way-too friendly couple, the new arrivals bore more than a passing resemblance to Mr. & Mrs. Smith (not the Hitchcock comedy, but the first pairing of Pitt and Jolie). That’s the premise, as two “normals” risk life and limb when they’re Keeping Up With The Joneses.

Throwback Thursday: “Bad Labor – No Coffee Break” Movies

20 October 2016 3:40 PM, PDT

Hollywood is filled with movies honoring working people and labor unions. I like labor unions but not everyone does – and well, labor unions (or union leaders) haven’t always been perfect. On Labor Day, we ran a pro-labor list but to reflect that other viewpoint, this edition of Throwback Thursday focuses on a Labor Behaving Badly list – films about bad or crooked union bosses, strikes gone wrong, workers behaving badly, and even a few anti-union films.

On The Waterfront (1954)

This excellent drama from director Elia Kazan is the gold standard of this kind of film, with a corrupt union boss (Lee J. Cobb) who have become a virtual dictator, treating the union like his own little army to do his bidding. One man, Terry Malone (Marlon Brando), stands up to him and breaks the power of the boss. Bad behavior indeed, and one heck of a good movie.

Last Exit to Brooklyn (1989)

Check Out the New Trailer and Poster For Mifune: The Last Samurai

19 October 2016 7:06 PM, PDT

Nearly 20 years after his death, Toshiro Mifune remains a true giant of world cinema. He made 16 remarkable films with director Akira Kurosawa, including RashomonSeven Samurai and Yojimbo, and together they shook the film world, inspiring not only The Magnificent Seven and Clint Eastwood’s breakthrough movie, A Fistful of Dollars, but also George Lucas’ Star Wars.

Mifune: The Last Samurai, the new feature-length documentary by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Okazaki, explores the evolution of the samurai film; Mifune’s childhood and World War II experience; his accidental entry into the movies; and dynamic but sometimes turbulent collaboration with Kurosawa.

Mifune – wry, charismatic and deadly — was the first non-white action star. “A lot of people try to imitate Mifune, especially when they’re playing strong and silent,” says Steven Spielberg, “ but nobody can. He was unique in all the world.”

The new trailer for  Mifune: The Last Samurai looks amazing: »

Sliff 2016 – Missouri-Shot Horror Eyes Of Fire from 1983 Screens November 8th

19 October 2016 6:23 PM, PDT

Eyes Of Fire screens Tuesday, November 8th at 7:30pm in 35mm at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium (470 E Lockwood Ave,) as part of The St. Louis International Film Festival. The screening will be introduced by We Are Movie Geeks own Tom Stockman

A few years back, Cinema St. Louis by chance came into possession of a 35mm print of Eyes Of Fire, an unjustly forgotten horror film shot more than three decades ago in the backwoods of the Missouri Ozarks. It was the directorial debut of experimental photographer Avery Crounse. For the 25th anniversary of the St. Louis International Film Festival, Cinema St. Louis feels duty-bound to give a respectful nod to their celluloid past — every other work in the fest screens digitally — by cracking open the film cans and offering a rare opportunity to view this criminally underseen gem in glorious 35mm. The event takes place at 7:30pm on Wednesday. »

Celebrate National Boss’s Day With New Trailer For The Boss Baby

17 October 2016 4:54 PM, PDT

In celebration of National Boss’s Day, DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox have released the new trailer for The Boss Baby.

Check out the trailer below and share with the Boss’s in your life.

DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby.

The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages. Also features the voices of Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, and Lisa Kudrow.

Directed by Tom McGrath, »
