I’m offering up two movies this week from my collection. The first one is this year’s Shout! Factory release of The Thingand the second place winner will receive my DVD copy of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Hard Eight. Entry details below!
The November episode of CinemAddicts is up, and I believe it’s our longest show ever. I can’t believe the year’s almost over and though this episode is definitely not short and sweet, there’s a ton of stuff to cover!
Having snap judgments about a movie before actually watching can, at times, restrict you from having a good time, and thankfully my preconceived notions of Where’s The Money were misguided. A mixture of internet content creators/stars (Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, Logan Paul) and acting vets (Kat Graham, Terry Crews), Where’s The Money has its share of comedic surprises up its sleeve.
Secret In Their Eyes and Green Room are just two examples of how Joe Cole’s presence can absolutely command a scene (I still haven’t checked out his work in Peaky Blinders). The fact based feature A Prayer Before Dawn features Cole front and center, and the trailer was just released today. Check it out below!!
This week I’m finally offering up Two Blu-rays that aren’t review copies. Two, Sealed, Never Opened, Blu-rays for the action epic God of War courtesy of Well Go USA Entertainment. Details on God of War entry requirements are below!!
Tragedy Girls opens in New York and Los Angeles October 20, but thankfully it’s not a flick that comes out and is gone before the blink of an eye (leading to an immediate run on Blu-ray and streaming). If you’re a horror/comedy genre fan (Scream franchise comes to mind), Tragedy Girls should be your cup of tea (actually it’s more like a double espresso shot to the soul). Below are five reasons why I absolutely love (and highly recommend) Tragedy Girls.
Growing up a Gen X baby, my indelible memory of John Cusack is his ghetto blaster, serenading Ione Skye with “In Your Eyes” moment in Say Anything. But sometimes the hero becomes the villain, and I’m pumped to see Lloyd Dobler turn evil with Blood Money. The film, starring Boyhood’s Ellar Coltrane, Willa Fitzgerald, and Jacob Artist, hits Blu-ray and DVD December 19. Details below!
Miles Teller (Bleed for This, upcoming Only The Brave) stars in Thank You For Your Service as Adam Schumann, a returning soldier from Iraq who, along with his fellow colleagues, finds it difficult readjusting to civilian life. The piece is adapted from Pulitzer Prize winning author David Finkel’s book of the same name, and in the audio below Teller explains why “accuracy” and “authenticity” were integral to Thank You For Your Service.
It’s a different type of giveaway this week, as I’m offering up a Prize Package from The Snowman. Winner gets the movie’s official promo shirt, The Snowman plush doll, and The Snowman murder note. Giveaway entry details (and a better picture of the items) re below:
My most anticipated film this year isn’t a comic book flick or animated feature bankrolled by some big studio. Rather, I’m all about Sweet Virginia, and if you love thrillers that leaves a bigger jolt than your morning cup of Joe, this might do the trick.
