Game Night Movie Review | Let’s Play

Well, I have to tell you that unless you are some kind of a die-hard snob, you will probably find Game Night (2018) far more entertaining than the average board game. Moreover, it is the perfect alternative if you want to persuade your friends to do something different on Saturday night. And if you happen to be a game buff, then this smart crime-thriller-comedy-mystery mash-up is right for you.

In a recent Q&A session on Reddit, the directors of Game Night (who by the way are huge fans of the board games) admitted that they make movies based on their own taste. In other words, they create films that they would love to watch themselves. They like to make the most fun out of this whole filmmaking thing. This is just one of the reasons Game Night turned out to be a huge success in the box-office.

New ‘Game Night’ Trailer Showcases a Crazy, Wild, and Scary Adventure

Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for their upcoming action/comedy ‘Game Night’, and it surely delivers–at least from a comedic perspective. We’ve seen a good look at the film in it’s previous trailer, but this trailer not only ratchets ups the comedy, but also the tension as we see stars Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams get caught up into shenanigans, forcing them into the expected comedic situations.

What makes this trailer so noteworthy is that it is the latest film from newly tapped ‘Flashpoint‘ directors John Francis Daleyand Jonathan Goldstein. Although the duo’s comedy instinct was showcased in the less-than stellar ‘Vacation’ reboot, their knack for comedy with a heart manifested itself wonderfully in their screenplay for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming‘. This film, however was scripted by Mark Perez (Accepted) and in addition to McAdams and Bateman, the film stars Kyle Chandler, Lamorne Morris, Jesse Plemons,

A Night of Fun Takes a Amusingly Deadly Turn in New Trailer For Game Night

Another funny trailer has been released for the great looking dark comedy Game Night, which stars Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler and Michael C. Hall. The story features a group of friends getting together for a little murder mystery game night that takes a deadly turn when the host is actually kidnapped. This takes the group of friends on a wild adventure to try and rescue him. I'm really hoping that this movie brings on the laughs. The latest trailer is packed full of new footage that I think you'll all enjhoy.

The film was co-directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Vacation) from a script written by Mark Perez (Accepted) and this is the synopsis:

Bateman and McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with

Hilarious Trailer For The Murder Mystery Party Comedy Game Night with Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams

This first trailer for the new comedy Game Night had me busting up laughing! I loved what I saw in this trailer and this actually looks like it could be a hilarious movie. The film has a solid cast that includes Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler and Michael C. Hall. The film is a dark comedy that tells the story of a bunch of friends who get together for a fun interactive murder mystery party that ends up horribly wrong in the funniest of ways.

The film was co-directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Vacation) from a script written by Mark Perez (Accepted) and this is the synopsis:

Director and Periscope Entertainment's David Guy Levy said this.

Dances With Films 2017 Review Round-Up: Devil’S Whisper, Inheritance, Imitation Girl, Central Park

The month of June has been flying by quicker than I can even believe, as we’re already a week out from the end of the 2017 Dances With Films festival, which took over the historic Chinese Theater in Los Angeles earlier this month. During Dwf, I had the opportunity to catch several intriguing genre films, including Devil’s Whisper, Inheritance, Imitation Girl, and Central Park, and here’s a summary of my thoughts on these four flicks:

Devil’s Whisper: There are a few aspects that I enjoyed about Devil’s Whisper, but unfortunately in the end, a somewhat predictable conclusion coupled with some hokey dialogue ends up derailing the supernatural story from becoming anything beyond “it’s fine.”

Co-writer/director Adam Ripp admirably takes the road left traveled in Devil’s Whisper (especially in relation to other recent possession-related movies), as we follow a teenager named Alex (Luca Oriel

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Gotham’s Robin Taylor

Robin Lord Taylor is an American film and television actor and director. He has recently emerged as a highly sought after actor in some popular shows and films. In particular, his portrayal of the Penguin (Oswald Cobblepot) in Gotham has earned him significant praise from fans, critics, and cast members. He has even been singled out as one of the most universally loved aspects of the show. His popular work also includes the 2006 comedy Accepted, in which he played Abernarthy Darwin Dunlap. Although he has risen to fame in the past several years, Taylor has acted professionally since 2005.

Jonah Hill: His best performances so far

I don’t think that Jonah Hill quite gets the appreciation that he deserves within the industry. Yes, he’s been cited by Oscar twice with Academy Award nominations in Best Supporting Actor (the first for Moneyball and the second for The Wolf of Wall Street) and has anchored a hugely successful comedy franchise, but still, he comes off as under-appreciated. Perhaps when he makes his directorial debut in a year or so that will change, but for now, he’s still underrated in my book. This week, he has a new film out in War Dogs, which could be another hit on his resume. He also has last week’s successful Sausage Party, an animated movie in which he is one of the voices. He certainly keeps busy, right? For those of you who are curious, War Dogs is dramedy about two young men who became unlikely gun runners.

Review: The Shallows is a Viciously Fun Summer Movie

You gotta hand it to director Jaume Collet-Serra. In just a little over eleven years behind the camera, he’s been responsible for three really strong modern horror classics—2005’s House of Wax (I’ll humbly defend this one to the bitter end, folks), Orphan, and now The Shallows, which has Blake Lively facing off against a deadly oceanic predator for 87 minutes. Taut, thrilling, and viciously fun, The Shallows is a great summer thriller that perfectly demonstrates the truth of that old adage: sometimes less truly is more.

The Shallows follows free-spirited Nancy (Lively) down to a secluded and mysterious beach in Mexico after recently taking a leave from medical school due to the untimely loss of her mother. Nancy is looking to take in some waves and get away from it all, so she heads out to an area her mother once surfed years ago—a place we don

You Won't Believe Which Actresses Almost Played Serena and Blair on "Gossip Girl"

  • TooFab
The Upper East Side could have looked a lot different! It seems two other actresses were in the running to play Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf on "Gossip Girl" before Blake Lively and Leighton Meester landed the roles. "I think the network initially pitched us Ashley Olsen and Rumer Willis for Blair and Serena," CW casting director David Rapaport told BuzzFeed. "I love Rumer, she’s grown into quite an amazing actress and person, but that, to me, was based on protecting the investment of a television show where creatively, these lesser-known girls really captured the essence of the show and carried it for six years." For Rapaport, Lively was always perfect for the role of the troubled New York socialite. "I had seen her in 'Accepted' and at that time, there were no Lena Dunhams or Zooey Deschanels — it was all about beauty and glamour,

Frightfest 2015: ‘Night of the Living Deb’ Review

Stars: Maria Thayer, Michael Cassidy, Ray Wise, Chris Marquette, Julie Brister, Syd Wilder, Brian Sacca, Grant Garry, Ned Donovan | Written by Kyle Rankin, Andy Selsor | Directed by Kyle Rankin

There are some films that, upon viewing, you just can’t help but fall in love with (and Night of the Living Deb is not the only film at this years Frightfest to hit me in my horror-loving heart). Back in 2009, at my very first Frightfest as a reviewer – covering the festival for Bloody Disgusting – there was one such film… Infestation. A parody of nature run amok movies like The Swarm, Phase IV and Them!, Infestation was a near-perfect comedic take on the killer-insect genre (even though those original creature-features are funny enough as they are) with stellar performances from Chris Marquette and Ray Wise. Well that was 6 years ago. a long six years. Since then director Kyle Rankin has been
