Poll: What’s Your Fall 2017 Film?

With August always a dicey film dumping ground, it’s time to turn our attention to September, October and November and the fall slate of films.  There are the two obvious giants in November with Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League, both of which are looking pretty good from their Comic Con trailers.  There’s Denis Villenueve’s Blade Runner 2049, Kenneth Brannagh’s Murder on the Orient Express remake, the Coen Brothers Suburbicon, the adaptation of the non-fiction bestseller Thank You for Your Service, and Disney/Pixar’s actual 2017 effort in Coco.  Then September has some intriguing possibilities with the Jennifer Lawrence/Javier Bardem, Darren Arnofsky-directed mother!  Also bowing in September is Tom Cruise’s American Made and Dylan O’Brien and Michael Keaton in American Assassin.  Which of these ten films has you the most excited?  Voting will end on August 30th, because as KT readers know, the September is poll is one of the two biggest of the year: the choosing of THE BEST SHOW ON TV.  So, cast your votes, and we’ll see which film is the fall’s most anticipated!

Blade Runner 2049 Trailer #3 “The Future of the Species is Finally Unearthed”

I have never tried so hard to like a movie in my life and failed as I have with Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. I have watched it FIVE times, and every time I walk away thinking it’s boring dreck. HOWEVER, I have loved every trailer I’ve seen for Blade Runner 2049, every still, every shot, every line. I think it’s awesome that Harrison Ford in the last years of his career is revisiting his legacy characters and giving them glory moments, and the audience a reminder of why he’s the one of the greatest actors of his generation: the everyman, instantly relatable and always entertaining. Director Denis Villeneuve has never disappointed me, and I don’t think he’s about to start here. For a full synopsis, read below.

Robin Wright’s 10 Best Movies

Robin Wright
Robin Wright has a stellar resume of quality films stretching from 1987’s The Princess Bride to 2017’s Wonder Woman.  Stellar roles have kept coming her way because she, along with Kevin Spacey, brought their star power to Netflix and House of Cards.  The series’ resultant success has made quality TV roles vehicles for actresses to continue to showcase their talent past Hollywood’s ageist bias against experienced actresses.  She’s created memorable characters, been an anchor in any ensemble she’s entered, and even managed to stay married to Sean Penn to an improbably long amount of time clearly demonstrating some kind of supernatural patience.

Trailer Time: Blade Runner 2049 Trailer #2 “Your Story Isn’t Over Yet. There’s Still a Page Left.”

*Text from Geek Tyrant (This looks phenomenal)

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

The film also stars Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, with Dave Bautista, Edward James Olmos and Jared Leto. All of which look fantastic in the role they play.

The movie was directed by Denis Villeneuve and it’s set to be released on October 6, 2017.


Movie Review: The Arrival (2016) “Another Villeneuve Masterpiece”

The Arrival, Amy Adams
I think that The Arrival will be the movie that finally puts Denis Villeneuve on the map as one of the best directors in Hollywood (if Sicario hadn’t already).  The alien visitation plot is something that’s been done a million times in a million ways in science fiction, but Villeneuve finds a way to take a fresh approach; focusing on communication between the species, the differences in perception two completely separate species would encounter about self, about family, and about time.  Alien obelisks have landed all over the globe causing panic.  Amy Adams does her normal stellar job playing a linguist brought in to try to communicate with them to see what they want and why they’re here.  That’s all you’re getting on plot, because if you’re a fan of Villeneuve, you know there’s usually an “O.Henry” moment (the author not the candy bar, people)  of plot pay-off that knocks you on your flat on your butt.
