Check out the just released trailer for Amy Heckerling’s latest film starring once again Alicia Silverstone. If you remember, Amy was responsible for (in my opinon) the best teen film of all time ‘Clueless’. She also helped make Alicia a full on movie star!
The film also stars Krysten Ritter & Sigourney Weaver.
Ps… loving the Zeppelin and Silversun Pickups in the trailer! But it is starting to feel like the Watchmen trailer - all this great music, none of which was used in the movie. Which is fine, but still. Not a huge Tyler Bates fan tbh.
Singer-songwriter Sean Bones stars as a recently-dumped Brooklyn skateboarder who gets lost in Jamaica after winning a free cruise. Norah Jones and Yeasayer’s Ira Wolf Tuton also star in the film, and it features appearances by Suckers (who perform live in the film) and MGMT’s Ben Goldwasser, as well as music from Santigold, Yeasayer, MGMT, Suckers, the Congos, and Bones.
The film arrives on DVD October 26, via Factory 25. Watch a trailer below, and click here to hear songs from the soundtrack.
Well, yet another completely unnecessary remake of what I feel is a pretty classic franchise. I definitely laughed more than I jumped in this movie because it, like so many other movies in this genre, it heavily relied on the typical loud sound / short lived scare factor. The remake, with a surprisingly lack-lustre performance by real life creeper Jackie Earle Haley, did not do the 1984 classic justice in any way. Don’t get me wrong, I think Jackie is a terrific actor but right now, somewhere in the world, Robert Englund is cursing the gods…and for good reason.
The one thing I DID love about the movie, was the use of “All I Have To Do Is Dream” by the Everly Brothers. So that’s good I guess.
Some good parts, but unfortunately, this ones a dud. Pass it up, buster.
I FINALLY went to see this movie tonight, and after an unfortunately long wait since the movie was released, I was definitely not disappointed. First of all, the real star of the movie was Hit Girl, played by 13 year-old Chloe Moretz. Merciless. Absolutely fantastic, and she played the shit out of the role.
But, for all you Nicolas Cage haters out there (Nick!), I must say that he did a great job, and this was a really good opportunity for him to win back some fans. I’m not the biggest Nick Cage supporter, but this role will now be filed with some of my favourites, such as Sailor Ripley in Wild at Heart and Roy Waller in Matchstick Men.
The movie was not only visually fantastic, but also sounded great. And although it shares a very similar colour scheme and artistic design as last years Watchmen, another favourite graphic novel-turned-movie of mine, I didn’t wince with pain every time someone got smashed in the face like I did during the March 2009 Blockbuster.
All in all, I can honestly say that this movie is one of my favourites of this year. Now hopefully I’ll say the same after the midnight screening of the highly anticipated remake of A Nightmare on Elm st. Stay tuned.
