With Brad Bird directing and George Clooney starring, the Disney film Tomorrowland has had everyone’s curiosity for a while now. Story by Damon Lindelof.
Kodi Smit-Mcphee is on the road again, this time in America’s old west. He’s in search of his love, Rose (Caren Pistorius), but he has to stay alive long enough to find her. His guide? An odd outlaw, Silas, played by Michael Fassbender.
Mrs. Hamster and I will be at Awesome Con DC again this year (May 29-31), covering events and enjoying the convention! If you don’t have your tickets yet, they’re still available here and are quite reasonably priced. Last year was fantastic and this year should be a really awesome time again so you should definitely check it out if you’re in the area. Read on to find out about a special Awesome Con-test I’m running.
Pitch Perfect was a surprise hit in 2012 and it surprised me as well by becoming an unlikely favorite of mine. If you haven’t seen it yet – perhaps it looks too much like some sort of High School Musical rip off? – don’t let appearances hold you back. It’s a hilarious and fun film, and I was looking forward to the followup for a while now.
It’s been thirty years since the last Mad Max film, but director George Miller has apparently been marinating a slow cooked stew of post apocalyptic mayhem all this time. Tom Hardy stars as the titular insane person, opposite a maniacal Charlize Theron. Nicholas Hoult and Zoe Kravitz also star.
Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon are the odd couple flavor of the month in this gal-pal comedy. One, a by-the-book law enforcement officer from Texas, the other a hotheaded wife of dangerous cartel member, the two are obviously going to have to work together to survive and see justice served.
Sometimes all you need to know about a movie is who stars in it and what the genre is, and you’ll know exactly what to expect. A zombie movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger seems like one of those cases. Don’t be fooled, though, this is not the action movie you might think it is.
In the undefined future, men and women travel to the far reaches of space in the blink of an eye. Slipstreaming long distances as some sort of particle signal is dangerous, but high paying. Sometimes the destination, though, is more dangerous than getting there.
In a twist that will surely lead to some creative Marvel mashup videos, Chris Evans is the Narrator – a screenwriter who just wants to script an action movie. Anthonie Mackie is his agent who just wants him to write a romantic comedy first. With no real love experience himself, and a chain-smoking hardboiled heart in the corner, our hero is not in his ideal situation. He’s not even sure if he believes in love.
