Argo….you go..we all go!
, Ben Affleck
really seems to be hitting his stride as a director-slash-actor.
He’s getting great reviews for the hostage drama and the people who spark buzz about Oscar Awards, and junk like that, are buzzing. The movie is being described as a “dense, multi-layered story,” but you shouldn’t let that scare you away. The fake movie-within-a-movie premise –it focuses on a CIA team smuggling diplomats out of Iran during the famous 1979 hostage crisis – gives Affleck a chance to balance a political thriller with touches of humor and excitement (at least that what we’re hearing).
If that isn’t enough to get your butt in the seats this weekend, maybe the supporting cast will. Affleck gets some help from John Goodman, Bryan Cranston, Victor Garber, and Kyle Chandler.
The rest of pack:
If you were a Hollywood producer making a movie called Seven Psychopaths, who would you cast in it? Let’s say it together. 1..2..3.. Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, and Woody Harrelson! Hahaha. Good times. What were we talking about again? Oh, yeah. The movie is a comedy about a group of kooky characters who steal a dog. Don’t let that scare you away (do you sense a theme here?) Looking at the trailer it seems like the premise is just quirky enough to be enjoyable, like a Guy Richie movie meets a Cohen brothers yarn. So give it a chance, Okay?
It’s October and there’s no way you can escape scary movies. If you’re one of those people who do not like scary movies, SPOILER ALERT, Sinister is a scary movie (bet you didn’t see that one coming). The set-up is pretty boiler plate; crime-writer (Ethan Hawke) gets obsessed with a story of a missing girl and scary shit starts happening.
What the heck, we’re feeling generous, let’s throw in another scary movie up in heh! This one’s a good one, and by “good one,” we mean it sounds completely ridiculous. Smiley
is about an urban legend discovered on, wait for it, controversial social network
, 4 chan. Stop laughing, there’s more. The main character doesn’t know if the serial killer known as Smiley is real or part of her imagination. So yeah, there you have it.
Here Come The Boom stars our favorite on-screen overweight buffoon, Kevin James, who still has plenty of good will from “King of Queens.” He plays a high school teacher that tries to save a failing high school. Now, with any Kevin James movie, there are a few things you can expect: prat falls, bodily humor, and sexy love interests that would never be interested in Kevin James, if Kevin James weren’t a rich actor. In “Boom” that job goes to Selma Heyak, who, we can all agree, is very capable of playing a sexy lady.
