Any film that features River’s Edge and Back to the Future star Crispin Glover in a prominent role has my attention, so Lucky Day is already on my radar. Add Luke Bracey (Point Break) and Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries) into this cinematic cocktail and you’ve got yourself a pretty stiff drink!
Ben Kingsley, simply put, is convincing in any role he chooses to tackle. With Spider in the Web, Kingsley is a Mossad agent who attempts one final mission before he is put out to pasture. Thanks to a surprisingly resonant storyline and subtle hand from filmmaker Eran Riklis (The Syrian Bride), the film scores on different levels.
There is a ton of stuff to cover and discuss about The Fanatic, and all of them are good. I’ll try my best to give you a picture of the in-joke brilliance behind director Fred Durst’s absorbing and nightmarish Los Angeles story. Let’s start with John Travolta.

Eli Goree stars in TV’s Pearson as Derrick Mayes, the principled press secretary of Mayor Bobby Golec (Morgan Spector). During an interview earlier this year, I asked Mayes to name some of his favorite films The Defiant Ones and Marlon Brando’s body of work topped the list!
Cate Blanchett and Billy Crudup (After The Wedding) team up with director Richard Linklater for Where’d You Go Bernadette, a film that is adapted from Maria Semple’s bestselling novel.
