Episode 28: Is Twilight over yet?

News & Gossip:

  •  Tom Cruise has picked the new director for Mission: Impossible 5 link
  • 9 min of the new Star Trek playing in IMAX before The Hobbit link

In theaters now:

  •  Lincoln (trailer): This movie blew Anna’s mind, but Kari’s less so. Anna thinks this is one of the best movies she’s seen all year, and while Kari loved it as well, maybe not as much as Anna did. They both rate it a high 5.
  • Breaking Dawn Part 2 (trailer): Anna found the movie to be a bit more boring than Kari did. Kari really enjoyed the new vampires that were introduced to the story and appreciated how they added to the movie. They both enjoyed seeing Edward in his true, happy state. They both rated it a solid 3.
  • Anna Karenina (trailer): While Anna found this movie to be visually stunning, the story left her a bit cold. She felt every minute of the 2 hour run time, but did enjoy seeing how Joe Wright’s earlier work influenced this one. Anna rates it a 2, but if you already know and like the story, you’ll probably enjoy it more than her.
  • Life of Pi (trailer): Even though this movie encompassed all the things Kari doesn’t like (sharks, big cats, and the ocean), she still rated it a 4. It’s a visually stunning piece of work and if sharks, tigers, being stranded in the ocean don’t stress you out, you will enjoy this movie.
  • Hitchcock (trailer): Anna thinks that if you’re interested in Hitchcock or his movies (especially Psycho), you will enjoy this movie. Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren are fabulous portraying the unique relationship Hitchcock and his wife had. Anna rates it a 4.

Episode 27: A Skyfall Celebration

We have been waiting another installment in the Bond franchise since 2008’s underwhelming Quantum of Solace. At times it felt as though the franchise was over, at times it felt like Bond had peaked with Casino Royale and was now on the way down, but November 9, 2012 brought Bond back with a bang. Skyfall was years in the making and did not disappoint. Rather than making this a full out extravaganza we decided to make it more of a celebration. We are celebrating not only a film, but the evolution and rebirth of the James Bond everyone has come to love and of a villain that is finally up to tangoing with 007.

News & Gossip:

  • The Giver coming to the screen? article
  • Mark Wahlberg joining Transformers 4 article
  • I thought MacGruber 2 was in the works but it turns out it was MacGyver article
  • Who has passed on Star Wars? article
  • Michael Arndt to write Star Wars Episode VII article
  • George Clooney joining 1952 article

In theaters now:

  • Skyfall (trailer): The James Bond of Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace was rough around the edges yet with Skyfall, Bond has evolved into the suave super-spy that everyone associates with the character. In this outing Bond is matched with a villain who is more than capable of going head to head with him both mentally and physically. Silva, played by the brilliant Javier Bardem, is a former MI:6 agent with a vendetta against M. In Skyfall, it is Silva, not Bond, who is the focus in each of their joined scenes. He has the perfect blend of intellect and insanity making you constantly wonder what he’s going to do next. With some amazing exotic locations and high flying action sequences it never felt as though I was sitting through a 2.5 hour film. It kept my attention for the entire duration and left me wanting more. I can only hope that we don’t have to wait another 4 years for the next installment. Anna and I both rate it 5 out of 5, and agree that it’s the best of the Bond franchise to date.

What’s on the horizon:

  • A Good Day to Die Hard (trailer) February 14, 2013
  • Hansel and Gretel (trailer) March 1, 2013
  • The Last Stand (trailer) January 17, 2013
  • Jurassic Park 3D (trailer) April 5, 2013

This weekend’s agenda:

  • Breaking Dawn Part 2 (trailer)
    • The Twilight Marathon November 15, 2012
  • Lincoln (trailer)
  • Anna Karenina (trailer)
  • Silver Linings Playbook (trailer)

Episode 25: Our New James Bond

With less than two weeks remaining until the opening of Skyfall we are trying our best to contain our excitement… and failing. While Quantum of Solace may not have been as on point as Casino Royale Daniel Craig still delivered as everyone’s favorite super spy. Hopefully Skyfall will deliver as another super charged installment in the Bond franchise.

News & Gossip:

  • Clive Owen in a comedy? article
  • Idris Elba as James Bond? article
  • Next two Bond stories to be linked article

In theaters now:

  • Alex Cross (trailer): While there is surely an audience for Alex Cross, it was not for Anna or me. The film was a study in overacting with very little payoff in the end. From what I know of the book (which is admittedly very little) it seems that the film is quite different from the original source material. Alex Cross, played by Tyler Perry, is a detective who specializes in profiling that is hot on the trail of a psychopathic assassin played by Matthew Fox. The two of them represent the best (Perry) and worst (Fox) acting in the film, though to say that Perry was the best is really only saying that his performance was good compared to everyone else. There is very little tension or suspense in the plot and the characters are laughable, making this crime drama a bit of a yawn. Anna gave it a 2 while it was only a 1 in my opinion.
  • Middle of Nowhere (trailer): This is a quietly moving independent film Anna saw. On the surface, it is a story of a young black woman, putting her medical schooling on hold while her husband is in prison. However, it’s really a story about a woman finding herself. When something happens that makes Ruby question her relationship with her husband, she is forced to look at her life and what she’s given up. It’s a movie that is able to capture the nuances and subtleties of the internal struggle Ruby goes through. A magnificent soundtrack and a story that reveals itself little by little, like a flower unfolding, all help make this a film not to be missed. Anna feels it’s one of the best movies she’s seen all year and rates it a 5.

What’s on the horizon:

  • Broken City (trailer) January 18, 2013
  • Iron Man 3 (trailer) May 3, 2013

Episode 24: The Oscar race has begun!

October, November, and December are typically great months for movies. The studios are all releasing their best offerings with the hope that they’ll be nominated this upcoming awards season. There’s still plenty of big blockbusters that will be released without chances of being on the Best Picture block, which makes this my favorite time of the year. I can count of multiple movies being released each week that I genuinely want to see and that I honestly anticipate being good. Argo has certainly gotten things started off with a bang! I can’t say with 100% certainty, but I’m pretty sure we can count on it showing up as a nominee for any number of awards next year.

Happily we should have a lot to talk about in the coming months and we hope you’ll stick with us as we break down the films coming out this winter!

News & Gossip:

In theaters now:

  • Looper (trailer) Anna and I had incredibly mixed opinions on Looper. While Anna enjoyed this time travel mystery I found myself annoyed by plot holes and off makeup to the point where I couldn’t enjoy the film. I know this will undoubtedly be an unpopular opinion but it is what it is. Looper is original and fast paced and if you are a fan of scifi or time travel movies it’s probably for you. Anna rated it a 4 while I rated it a 1 (for one of my reasons for not liking this movie scroll to the bottom of the post).
  • Argo (trailer) Ben Affleck has certainly earned the distinction of a great director with this fact based drama set during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis. This film pays amazing attention to detail in creating not only the events of the film but in creating the look and mood of the late 70s to early 80s. Affleck as Tony Mendez was also a treat to watch, making this (in my opinion) one of the best performances of his career. Make sure you don’t rush out of the theater at the end of the film as there are some interesting photos and biographical tidbits during the credits. Anna rated this a 4 while I rated it a full on 5.
  • Seven Psychopaths (trailer) The writer/director of In Bruges has brought another quirky and original film starring Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson to name a few. The plot features a screenwriter suffering from writer’s block and the plethora of psychopaths he comes in contact with as he’s writing a film called Seven Psychopaths. This was fun to watch though it is quite violent. If you are a fan of Christopher Walken (and seriously who isn’t?) you need to check this out. Anna rated it a 4 while I rated it a 3.

What’s on the horizon:

  • Zero Dark Thirty: December 19, 2012 (trailer)
  • Stand Up Guys: January 11, 2013 (trailer)
  • Gangster Squad: January 11, 2013 (trailer)

Episode 23: Have you missed us?

We’re so happy to return this week with some reviews of movies we actually wanted to see! Not only have we been in the midst of a literal drought, but for the last month or so we’ve been experiencing a cinematic drought. It seemed as if the studios all decided to release the movies that nobody wanted to see all at once during the month of September. Rather than making a chore out of going to movies we didn’t want to see and then rehash them for the podcast, we decided to take a little break and rejoin the real world. You know, the world where people aren’t drawn to the theater every weekend and instead do things like socialize with other people, travel, and do activities outside. It was a welcome break but we were ready to get back to the theater when on September 21, 2012 the box office calendar was finally flush with films that we were looking forward to seeing. Sadly we were only able to get to one movie last weekend, but the one we saw was so great it was as if the cinema was opening it’s arms to envelope us in a great big hug.

News & Gossip:

  • Update on Dumb & Dumber To article
  • Natalie Portman as Jackie O article
  • Yet another Lincoln biopic article

In theaters now:

  • End of Watch (trailer): I can’t say enough how much we enjoyed (probably wrong word) this movie. Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña had amazing chemistry and made their scenes seem as if you were watching real life interaction. This is not a movie exposing police corruption, as so many police movies are, rather a movie where all of the police men and women are good people trying to do the best job that they can. I highly recommend this film but would also remind everyone to bring the tissues. Anna and I both rated this a 4 out of 5.
  • Pitch Perfect (trailer): To say this movie is campy and fluffy would be an understatement. The constant aca-dialogue gets a little old but in general this film is a great time. Rebel Wilson manages to steal every scene she’s in, though a lot of her funniest moments were spoiled on the trailer. This movie wasn’t perfect but it was a great time. Go see it with a group of girls and try to keep yourself from singing along… I dare you! I rate this a 3 out of 5 (1 point for the movie and 2 points for the fun factor)

What’s on the horizon:

  • Stoker (trailer) March 1, 2013
  • Identity Thief (trailer) February 8, 2013
  • Promised Land (trailer) January 11, 2013
  • Seven Psychopaths (trailer) October 12, 2012
  • Silver Linings Playbook (trailer) November 21, 2012

Episode 21: The not so mediocre mediocre weekend

Not every week can have amazing films coming out. It’s just not possible. So it’s nice to be surprised when you think you’ll be watching mediocre movies, but actually enjoy what you’re watching.

I’ll admit I didn’t get to the movies as much as I’d have hoped over the weekend but, in case you missed it, it’s Olympics time and I am glued to my TV. It was a struggle for me to tear myself away long enough to get to one movie so I knew a second wasn’t going to happen. We’re also keeping this episode short and sweet since we’re recording in the hour before the prime-time broadcast of the Olympics and Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte are meeting for their final race… we do have a few things that take priority over movies.

News & Gossip:

  • Desperation is the key to Colin Farrell’s success article
  • What’s in store for the next installment of the X-Men franchise? article
  • Prometheus 2 to start off where Prometheus left off article
  • Fast and Furious Six has started production article
  • It’s official. The Hobbit will be three films article
    • Production diaries for The Hobbit link
  • More Catching Fire casting news article

In theaters now:

  • Step Up Revolution (trailer): If you like your movies low on acting but high on fun, this is the film for you! When the cast of a film is made largely of dancers you can’t expect the acting to be spot on. You also can’t expect a riveting plot to hold your attention. What you can expect is amazing dance scenes. I will freely admit that I have a real love for Step Up 2. Not so much for Step Up 1 or Step Up 3, but I’ve seen both of those and would watch them again if they were on TV. I was not expecting much going into Step Up Revolution but was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. To be fair I love a good choreographed dance number. The plot was laughable and the acting terrible, but the film was saved by the dancing. I honestly had a hard time sitting still in my seat. I rated it a 3 out of 5 (for the fun factor) while Anna rated it a 2.
  • The Watch (trailer): Anna enjoyed The Watch much more than she thought she would. Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughan deliver pretty standard performances but Richard Ayoade and Jonah Hill steal the show. Anna refused to spoil the film for me but it centers around a neighborhood watch group hunting down aliens in their neighborhood and CostCo. Anna laughed her way through the entire film and rated it a 3 out of 5. Sadly I was not able to see The Watch because I was too busy watching the Olympics.

What’s on the horizon:

  • Chasing Mavericks: October 26 (trailer)

Episode 20: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES EXTRAVAGANZA!

As Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy comes to an end I feel that there is no better way to celebrate his masterpiece than to dedicate this week’s episode to The Dark Knight Rises and Christopher Nolan’s Gotham City. Since 2005 audiences around the world have been enthralled with this world that manages to look somewhat our world today but is filled with larger than life heroes and villains. We have eagerly anticipated each installment, waiting on the edges of our seats to find out what lies ahead for Bruce Wayne/Batman. We have cried as he has faced loss again and again. We have laughed as he has quipped while foiling the plans of his villains. We have chewed our nails while trying to keep up with the multitude of plot twists. But we have never doubted that Christopher Nolan, along with his cast and crew , would deliver an amazing film. As the trilogy comes to an end we can reflect back on how each film has led the way for this conclusion. I’m sure the debate will last quite some time on which of the three films was the best, but for me this is a trilogy where each film strengthens the others. I am certain that it will be difficult for anyone trying to reboot the Batman franchise in the future to beat what has been accomplished with these films.

News & Gossip:

  • Should Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman get her own movie? article
  • What would you say to additional films set in Nolan’s Gotham without Batman? article
  • Top 10 things Christopher Nolan got right article
  • Rating the actors in The Dark Knight Rises article
  • Christopher Nolan says “goodbye” to Batman article
  • Christian Bale has a generous spirit (in my opinion) article

In theaters now:

  • The Dark Knight Rises (trailer): Christopher Nolan has given us a top notch finale to his Dark Knight trilogy. It has been 8 years in Gotham since Batman has fought for justice. Bruce Wayne has become a recluse, trapped in a self imposed prison. Gotham has been made safe by The Harvey Dent Act. But events are simmering beneath the surface that once brought to light, will force Bruce Wayne to wear the Batman cowl once again. This film is not The Dark Knight. Those expecting a film that mirrors The Dark Knight will be disappointed because where The Dark Knight was all about the villain, The Dark Knight Risesis all about Bruce Wayne’s personal journey coming to an end. He is fulfilling his destiny and becoming the hero he was meant to become. Tom Hardy’s Bane is not the villain The Joker was. He is not crazed or manic. He has a purpose in life and believes that he is doing what’s right. He has a physicality that is greater than Batman’s and is able to do the unthinkable: best Batman in a fight. Anne Hathaway was a real surprise as Selina Kyle/Catwoman. Upon initial reports that she would be playing Catwoman I was unsure that she’d be able to pull it off… but she did. She was Catwoman without being overly campy or sexual, while giving audiences a voice from the underprivileged in Gotham City. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was able to give depth and emotion to a character that could have been completely one dimensional. Anna and I agree that at a run time of just under 3 hours the film didn’t seem as long as it was. We were able to experience a wide range of emotions and Anna was so excited at one point she even clapped (I know, I know). We both rated this 5 out of 5 and neither of us can wait to see it again.

Episode 18: After a disasterous #17 we’re back!

I’m happy to be back in audio form this week after last week’s disastrous loss of our Magic Mike, Ted, and The Amazing Spiderman reviews. We have some fun news, one review, and what I think will be an exciting new topic: our favorite films. I’m excited to take a look through “the library” and figure out which two movies are so great that they deserve the spotlight for the recording and I hope to hear from you all on if you have favorites you’d like us to talk about or if you have categories that you’d like us to spotlight.

News & Gossip:

  • The most awesome bit of Catching Fire casting news yet! article
  • Mockingjay to be split into two parts article
  • R Patz as the next James Bond? article
  • Depp, Law, and more being being talked to for Wes Anderson’s new film article
  • Magic Mike 2? Say it’s so! article
  • Jason Bateman to make his directorial debut with Bad Words article
  • Which foreigners have the best American accents? article

In theaters now:

Savages (trailer): Oliver Stone’s new movie is quite violent. I thought I’d start with this as a warning. It was violent enough that Anna walked out before the end. Salma Hayek turns in an amazing performance as the head of a Mexican drug cartel trying to keep her organization from crumbling. Benicio Del Toro as her muscle is frankly terrifying. He plays an emotionless “savage” who relishes in killing  anyone seen as a threat to the cartel. Taylor Kitsch (Chon) and Aaron Johnson (Ben) play friends and business partners (maybe something more? I don’t know…) who share their lover, O played by Blake Lively. Their business is marijuana and they grow weed that is so good the cartel is trying to get them to teach their growers how to produce the same products, with disastrous results.  I would say (with some knowledge of the book the film is based on) that the relationship between Ben and Chon was one of the more interesting points in the film, although Anna disagrees. One thing we both agree on is how bad Blake Lively’s performance is. Frankly I can’t imaging what Ben and Chon find so fascinating with O and her narration of much of the film was in a sharp contrast with what was going on in the scene. Perhaps their relationship would have been more convincing with a different female lead. Overall I rated this a 3 out of 5 and Anna a 2 out of 5. To be fair I’m sure my expectations were much, much lower than Anna’s.

What’s on the horizon:

This weekend’s agenda:

  • This weekend we’re trying something new. Due to a lack of new films in theaters we will each be taking stock of our favorite, go-to films and we’ll be discussing those next week. Hopefully this will become a semi-regular occurrence, where we can revisit some of our favorites and hopefully introduce you all to some films that you may not have seen or may not have seen in quite some time.

Episode 17: I love an R-Rated Weekend!

Sadly due to technical difficulties the recording of Episode 17 was lost and unable to be recovered. Hopefully you’ll still enjoy reading the articles we found interesting last week and will get some use out of the quick reviews of the films we were able to see.

It seems as if it has been a long, long time since we’ve been able to see multiple movies in one week that were all good. This was one of the best theater weeks that I can remember having in quite some time. I can’t say for Anna, but I would also go on the record and say that I had the best audiences in a long time in all of the films that I saw [Oh yes, I definitely had a great audience!]. My week started with Ted, moved on to The Amazing Spiderman, and finished with Magic Mike. I don’t think I need to go into which I found to be the most fun… but I will.

Magic Mike night was tons of fun! I got together with three of my friends for cocktails and cheese before the movie, which got us a little more in the mood for the spectacle to come. Normally I am not one for clapping during movies, but I had to really restrain myself from clapping, whistling, hooting and hollering, or whatever else one does during a strip show. I wanted to scream like a fan girl at a pop concert, and let me assure you I can do that quite well. I did manage to keep my cool, as did my friends, but it was tough work [I’m sure she wasn’t the only one partaking in cocktails before the movie. There were a few in my audience…].

Sadly I’m sure there aren’t any awesome male strippers in the Des Moines area… but if there are please do leave a comment. I’d be interested in your services for b-days, batchelorette parties, baby showers- basically any type of party-like environment where lots of women would congregate.

News & Gossip:

  • Jena Malone is Johanna article
  • The bigger the blockbuster, the bigger the biceps article
  • An economic comparison between Batman and Spiderman article
  • The Amazing Spiderman the first in a new trilogy? article
  • The Dark Knight trilogy will be in theaters June 19, 2012 AMC tickets Cinemark tickets

In theaters now:

  • Magic Mike (red band trailer): If you’re into having fun, you must see this film. It also probably wouldn’t hurt to be a woman- not that men can’t watch this too, they just might not enjoy it quite as much as the women. Channing Tatum is mesmerizing to watch when he dances. They could have made a two-hour film of only dance scenes with him and the other dancers (Tarzan would be the exception) and I would gladly pay $10.00 to watch it.  I had no idea that Adam Rodriguez from CSI: Miami would be such a good dancer, but he was. The story follows Mike as he tries to transition away from being a stripper to becoming a custom furniture builder. Along the way he takes “The Kid” (played by Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and teaches him the way of being a member of the Cock Rocking Kings of Tampa. I wish that the other dancers played by Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, and Matt Bomer had a little more dialogue and story. They really were basically filler for the dance numbers. Matthew McConaughey turns in a performance that was equally creepy and fun to watch [but mostly creepy, in my opinion]. There is a tiny bit of romance in the film, but don’t think that this is a love story, because it is not. Magic Mike is occasionally dark, occasionally hilarious, and an all around good time. Anna and I both rated it a 4 out of 5.
  • Ted (red band trailer): Mark Wahlberg plays maybe one of the most loveable losers ever in Ted. He is way, way too attached to his foul-mouthed, pothead teddy bear, but in an enjoyable to watch type of way. Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) was a normal teddy bear when he was gifted to John, but a childhood wish turned him into a teddy bear that could speak, eat, drink, and do basically anything a human could do.  I loved the relationship between John and his girlfriend, Lori (Mila Kunis), and loved the interactions between Lori and Ted. This movie isn’t just a story about a man who can’t grow up, it’s about making the adult decision to be the person that you want to be with the people that you want to be with. This film kept me laughing from beginning to end and I would recommend it to anyone who loves laughter and/or foul-mouthed children’s toys. Anna and I both rated this a 4 out of 5.
  • The Amazing Spiderman (trailer): Andrew Garfield delivers as the new Spiderman. His performance is that of a younger, snarkier, more awkward Peter Parker. He does a great job of showing Peter Parker’s transition into Spiderman. There are quite a few articles floating around (article) painting a rather unflattering portrait of this reboot of the Spiderman franchise, but as someone who hasn’t read the comic books I say that this has been my favorite of the Spiderman films. I enjoyed this new origin story but agree with this article that there were some questions and plot points promised in the trailers that were not shown in the film, I think to the film’s detriment. I don’t know why the scenes were scrapped, but I think they would have made for an even more interesting film. There was also an almost criminal misuse of the great Martin Sheen and Sally Field as Uncle Ben and Aunt May. They were not given the opportunity to shine as the amazing actors that they are. I did see this in 3D and would say that if you didn’t want to spend the extra money on the 3D ticket, don’t. The 3D effects weren’t as cool as they could have been and honestly I don’t think it really added anything to the film. All of this aside, The Amazing Spiderman was action packed and tons of fun. Both Anna and I rated it a 4 out of 5.

Episode 16: Getting ready for an R-rated weekend

My anticipation for Friday is most closely related to the anticipation I used to feel for waking up on Christmas morning. It’s like I’m waiting to find out what kind of magic awaits in the theater as I sit down to watch Magic Mike. I’m sure that Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey will be working a strange sort of sorcery over audiences across the country this weekend and all I can say is please, please put a spell on me.

News & Gossip:

  • Jena Malone could be Johanna in Catching Fire article
  • Magic Mike coming to a stage near you article
  • Could Matt Damon be coming back to the Bourne franchise? article
  • Tom Cruise is Jack Reacher article

In theaters now:

  • Brave (trailer): First a warning for parents who are on the fence on if they should take their young child to see this… be very aware of what your child can handle because this movie gets a little scary. This cautionary fairy tale does an amazing job of illustrating the bond between mothers and daughters. If you’ve ever felt that surely you and your mother must not get along in ways that no other mother and daughter get along fear not. I could not help but think that somehow Disney Pixar perfectly captured my relationship with my mother. The animation is amazing and the film, while I did not love the story, is another win for Disney Pixar. I would recommend seeing this with your mother if at all possible. I rate it a 3 out of 5 while Anna rates it a 4.
  • Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (trailer): This film was horrible. If you’d like to see Honest Abe fell a tree with one swing of an ax, jump across stampeding horses to catch a vampire, or punch his fist through the chest of a vampire this is the film for you. If you don’t want to see any of this crap please, please do not waste your money on it. I rate it a 0 (that’s a zero) out of 5.
