Movie Review – War Dogs (2016)

24 August 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

War Dogs, 2016.

Directed by Todd Phillips.

Starring Miles Teller, Jonah Hill, Ana de Armas and Kevin Pollak.

Synopsis:

David Packouz (Teller) is a down-and-out masseuse, living with his girlfriend with few ambitions, and a baby on the way. At a funeral for an old school friend he bumps into his childhood best friend Efraim (Hill), and soon enough Efraim has him embroiled in his arms dealership. As the business grows, so does the danger, money and conflicts. All based on a true story.

They often say that those who can write great comedy can write great drama. The same can be applied to those who write mediocre comedy and, thusly, mediocre drama. Adam McKay showed how a pro could move from the silliness of Anchorman to the high stakes of Oscar-bait The Big Short.

‘War Dogs’ review: “An enjoyable, if somewhat unbelievable action/ comedy”

23 August 2016 8:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

War Dogs review: Miles Teller and Jonah Hill lead this enjoyable and extremely funny true story…

Our War Dogs review by Paul Heath, August 2016.

War Dogs is the latest film from Todd Phillips, the director of The Hangover trilogy, a series of films that thankfully came to an end back in 2013 after making a total of $1.4 billion worldwide. The last movie in that series is enough to make most cinema-goers to head for the proverbial hills when the mention of a new Phillips movie hits, but there’s one thing that you can’t deny this filmmaker for – his ability to execute a comedy. Here, Phillips turns to the likes of Scorsese or De Palma for inspiration and brings a very true story to screens, albeit mixed with his customary wit and laughs aplenty.

The Hangover, Old School, Road Trip… These are just a selection of films that have illuminated the CV of renowned comic director Todd Phillips. But he’s now, much like contemporaries Adam McKay and David Gordon Green, turned his head to the drama – with War Dogs. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Phillips […]

Why Todd Phillips Wants to Keep Making Movies About Male Mayhem

19 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Todd Phillips is vaping. At least, he was vaping when IndieWire sat down with the “War Dogs” helmer a few weeks back to talk about his latest feature, a fact-based film that leans far more towards the dramatic than the “Hangover”-esque antics most people expect from the guy who directed the actual “Hangover” trilogy. That Phillips vapes isn’t exactly shocking — again, there’s certainly an expectation of behavior when it comes to the filmmaker behind “Road Trip” and “Old School” — but his open nature and keen honesty about his own work is pleasantly refreshing.

Phillips doesn’t like to chat too much about future projects and things that might happen (and don’t even bother to mention the litany of projects that populate his IMDb profile’s “in development” section, he says most of them are not real) and he’s not especially interested in the narrative that »

‘War Dogs’ Almost Starred Shia Labeouf and Jesse Eisenberg

Todd Phillips‘ War Dogs might become one of the summer’s few pleasant surprises. Critics are somewhat mixed on the film, but the reviews are far more positive than what we read for The Hangover sequels, and they’re about on par with the reviews for Phillips’ Old School, Starsky & Hutch, and Road Trip, his more well-liked movies. Jonah Hill is receiving praise for his […]

Miles Teller’s Hustle: How The ‘War Dogs’ Star Is Building One of Hollywood’s Most Versatile Careers

17 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Miles Teller is blonde now. The “Whiplash” and “War Dogs” star is currently sporting a mop of electric yellow hair, courtesy of Joseph Kosinski’s currently filming “Granite Mountain,” which casts Teller as a firefighter tasked with battling a wicked Arizona wildfire back in 2013. For Teller, it’s the next big step in a seemingly ever-evolving feature film career that, less than a six years in, already contains starring roles in festival favorites, Oscar contenders, superhero franchises and bawdy comedies.

In Teller’s newest feature, the Todd Phillips-directed “War Dogs,” the actor again changes direction, thanks to an action comedy that casts the actor alongside Jonah Hill as a pair of unlikely arms dealers who get in over their heads when they attempt to close a big deal with the U.S. government. But although the film has all the hallmarks of a Phillips film – namely, it’s about »

Film Review: ‘War Dogs’

16 August 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

War Dogs,” starring Miles Teller and Jonah Hill as bushy-tailed geek scoundrels who become Internet arms salesmen, is that rare thing: a based-in-reality movie that gives you a buzz. The film just about tingles with the antic pleasure of seeing people get away with things they shouldn’t. It’s obvious that the director, Todd Phillips, was hugely influenced by the money-rush fever and propulsive shot language of Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and by the orchestrated delirium of David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” — giddy, spinning life-as-a-con-job psychodramas that show you how fraud really works, and that celebrate it, too. (They also condemn it, but only after giving the audience a rough and rowdy good time.)

Phillips borrows the bravura of Scorsese and Russell (who borrowed plenty of Scorsese’s to begin with), but he also makes it his own, merging it with his more casually mirthful, »

How 'The Hangover' Director Took on the Military Industrial Complex

11 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"My whole life, even now, I'm attracted to mayhem," Todd Phillips is saying, feet resting on a spotless coffee table inside his spotless office on the Warner Bros. film-studio lot in Burbank, him having turned this lifelong attraction into so much money you can't believe it.

Take the three Hangover movies, from 2009 to 2013, all of which Phillips directed and two of which he co-wrote. Altogether, they've raked in $1.4 billion, with lunacy galore, chain-smoking monkeys, unexpected face tattoos, roofie-puffed marshmallows and so forth, ad nauseam. Crazy stuff, none of which would »

The incredible true story of two 20-year-old stoners who became international arms dealers will head to the big screen this August with War Dogs.

Film Review: ‘Search Party’

12 May 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Now three seasons into the HBO series “Silicon Valley,” T.J. Miller and Thomas Middleditch have developed terrific chemistry as tech-world outsiders — the former a gaseous stoner, the latter a quivering bundle of anxiety. That same dynamic is more or less on display in “Search Party,” a woeful road comedy that was produced before “Silicon Valley” but is only now sputtering out into the world. Stepping behind the camera after partnering with director Todd Phillips as a writer on hits like “Road Trip,” “Old School,” and “The Hangover: Part II,” Scot Armstrong bros out again with a lewd-and-loud blockbuster comedy in the Phillips tradition. A binge-drinking session away from being a fourth “Hangover” movie, the film is a non-starter in theaters, but a who’s-who of alt-comedy talent may give it a boost on VOD, with attendant morning-after regrets.

Search Party Review

11 May 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Search Party is one of those shelved Black List productions you so desperately want to succeed, if only for its cast of on-the-bubble, breakout-seeking lead actors. T.J. MillerThomas Middleditch and Adam Pally are all star-worthy comedians (Silicone Valley/The Final Girls/Night Owls/Happy Endings), but Scot Armstrong’s directorial debut struggles to muster its own frat-comedy voice (Armstrong wrote a majority of Todd Phillips’ films). There are funny moments, and enjoyably deranged comedic beats, but they’re sandwiched between characters who only find humor in offensive insults and an obsession with Middleditch’s dangling member. It’s no direct-to-dvd Road Trip sequel, but stoner comedy of the highest order this is not – pun intended.

Armstrong’s wild ride begins when Jason (T.J. Miller) and Evan (Adam Pally) ruin their best friend’s wedding, sending the depressed groom, Nardo (Thomas Middleditch), into an emotional draught. With his heart still broken, »

'Search Party' Red Band Trailer: T.J. Miller Goes Wild in Mexico

1 April 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In just a few short weeks, HBO's critically-acclaimed comedy series Silicon Valley will return for Season 3, but fans will also get to see two of the show's leading men on the big screen this summer. Focus Features has debuted a new red band trailer for the outrageous comedy Search Party, arriving in theaters, Digital HD and VOD on May 13. Silicon Valley stars Thomas Middleditch and T.J. Miller reunite for this comedy, starring alongside Adam Pally, which shows that you should think twice before visiting Mexico.

Wedding bells threaten to break up three best friends' long-running bromance, but they aren't going down without a fight in Search Party, the directing debut of screenwriter Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II, Old School). Convinced that his buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) is making the mistake of a lifetime by marrying Tracy (Shannon Woodward), Jason (T.J. Miller) puts a dramatic end to their wedding. When »

A Collection of the Funniest Clips From The Tom Green Show

21 March 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I hadn’t seen or heard anything about Tom Green for a long time before he appeared on the newest season of The Celebrity Apprentice. He had appeared in a few movies, like Road Trip and Stealing Harvard, dated Drew Barrymore, and then just kind of fell off the face of the Earth. I like Tom Green in movies, but – as my buddy Nick says – he’s also put on a leash of sorts. When he had his own show on MTV, though, Green was allowed to do pretty much whatever he wanted. I was a big fan of the

Inspired By True Story Film Hangman Heading to DVD/Bluray This February!!

11 January 2016 12:44 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I’m a sucker for films that hold the “Inspired by True Events” stamp on them. Sure, most of them are Very far from what the source crime happened to be, but still, it’s the quickest way to instantly get under my skin for a terrifying time. It’s with that approach that filmmaker Adam Mason’s Hangman sets genre fans up for a big scare, telling the story of a couple being stalked by an intruder and the events that follow. Led by Amy Smart (The Butterfly Effect, Crank, Road Trip), Jeremy Sisto (Wrong Turn, TV’s “Wicked City”) and Kate Ashfield (Shaun of the Dead, The War Zone, Secret Smile), Hangman is set to hit DVD/Bluray on February 9th, via Alchemy.

Returning from vacation, the Miller family find their home has been broken into. After cleaning up the mess they continue with their lives, shaking off the feeling of being violated. »
