This Year Has Been A Year Of Movies And Reflection For Shia LaBeouf

There was a time not too long ago that actor Shia LaBeouf’s antics in public and on movie sets were making more press than the movies he was in. During the 2012 making of the crime drama, “Lawless” rumors swirled around that LaBeouf and Tom Hardy got into a heated argument which led to LaBeouf punching out Hardy. That’s right LaBeouf punched out Bane from that Batman movie. In 2017 the actor was arrested for drunken intoxication. LaBeouf was ordered to pay some fines, perform 100 hours of community service, get counseling for anger management, and complete drug and alcohol evaluation. It was while in rehab that LaBeouf wrote the screenplay Honey Boy. The screenplay serves as autobiographical. In the film, LaBeouf plays an alcoholic abusive father to a child actor. Honey Boy director Alma Har’el, told the press that LaBeouf sent him the script while in rehab. LaBeouf won the Breakthrough Screenwriter Award at the Hollywood Film Awards back in November. While receiving the award LaBeouf thanked the officer that arrested him. The official trailer for Honey Boy is …

Seven Bucks Productions Partner With 101 Studios On The Upcoming Film Unstoppable

Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions has partnered with 101 Studios, A Really Good Home Pictures, Coonskin Cap Productions and Gary Lewis to produce Unstoppable, the inspiring true-life story of sports hero Anthony Robles.  The one-of-a-kind drama follows Robles who, despite being born with only one leg to a single-parent family on the wrong side of the tracks, overcame every obstacle to become an undefeated collegiate wrestling star, three-time All-American, 2011 NCAA National Champion, two-time ESPY Award winner and a National Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee. “Words cannot express how honored I am to have my story made into a film,” Anthony Robles said. “Because I was born missing my leg, my entire life I’ve had to deal with people having low expectations of me.

I’m hopeful that people who see Unstoppable will walk away believing that you should never let your challenges define you. If you have a goal, go after it with everything you’ve got. Nothing is impossible.” “Our entire Seven Bucks team is passionate about sharing …

Blade Original Movie Soundtrack By Mark Isham Now Available From Varese Sarabande Records

The Original Motion Picture Score for Blade by award-winning composer Mark Isham has been released for the first time on vinyl today and is available on VareseSarabande.com and other retailers. The LP’s jacket, inner sleeve, and labels thematically reference the infamous warehouse rave scene of the vampire thriller from 1998. “The score needed to have an epic super-hero quality but with a very dark side, and it needed to be able to live next to the world of 1990’s electronica – The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Aphex Twin, etc. We used a large symphony orchestra supplemented with electronic synthesizers and samplers for a unique musical vocabulary. I did a lot of sampling of weird and strange sounds as well as programming my synth collection. We recorded at the Fox stage which is a wonderful room. The process went smoothly as I had worked tirelessly with Steve Norrington, the director, during the demo process to get what we both wanted. We recorded some sections of the score in smaller segments – to be edited together later – as a lot of the visual effects …

AHS 1984 Review

The 1980s are back in all its hokeyness, thanks to AHS 1984. The series is back for its ninth bloody season. The series was created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. This season of AHS was heavily influenced by slasher films like Halloween and Friday the 13th. I have been looking forward to this series ever since San Diego Comic-Con when I took part in a walkthrough that FX hosted on the lawn of the Hilton Bayfront. Everything about the walkthrough was amazing including the actors and the props used once you walked through the doors to Camp Redwood. You can check out our awesome review here. https://www.ageofthenerd.com/2019/08/our-exciting-adventure-at-the-fx-fearless-forum-at-san-diego-comic-con/ Were only two episodes into the seven-episode season, and blood has already spilled. A lot of fans were upset when news broke that Evan Peters would not be returning this season, but the show must go on. In 1984 Brooke Thompson ( Emma Roberts) is attacked by the Night Stalker. Brooke meets some new friends at a local aerobics’ studio. Because of Brooke’s past trauma, she decided to leave town with her new …

Eddie Vedder And Sean Penn Through the Years Of Music And Film

This weekend the annual Ohana Music Festival is taking place at Doherty State Park in sunny California. The festival headliners include The Strokes, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats, Glen Hansard,  Eddie Vedder, Incubus, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Pearl Jam is my favorite band. And if you are a fan of music you have probably discovered other music and art through that music. I discovered Neil Young, The Ramones, and The La’s just to name a few while listening to Pearl Jam. I also discovered actor Sean Penn. One of the first albums I ever bought was Pearl Jam’s album Yield. While thumbing through the booklet that came with the CD, I found the picture that went along with the song IN HIDING. There really isn’t any lyrics to the song, but a little written message at the bottom of the page “ Thanks Sean”. And since there is no other member of Pearl Jam with the first name Sean, I thought I made a discovery that only I knew about. That the song was kind of in …
