From a screenplay by Shia LaBeouf, based on his own experiences, award-winning filmmaker Alma Har’el brings to life a young actor’s stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his father through cinema and dreams. Fictionalizing his childhood’s ascent to stardom, and subsequent adult crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Har’el casts Noah Jupe and Lucas Hedges as Otis Lort, navigating different stages in a frenetic career. LaBeouf takes on the daring and therapeutic challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon. Artist and musician FKA twigs will make her feature-film debut, playing neighbor and kindred spirit to the younger Otis in their garden-court motel home.

IT Chapter Two Review

We went and saw a movie I have been waiting all year to see, IT Chapter Two. The movie will hit theater’s this week and will surely be a delight for fans of Stephen King and his killer clown creation Pennywise. The movie was well worth the wait, and don’t be surprised if you see more Pennywise costumes this Halloween. Pennywise has returned after a twenty-seven-year slumber and begins feasting on the children of Derry once more. The Loser’s Club who first defeated Pennywise years before must return to their old town to defeat the killer clown once and for all. Whoever did the casting to cast the adult Loser’s should win an award. Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, and Andy Bean all portray the adult Losers. I got to admit Bill Hader hit it out of the park playing adult Richie Tozier is a very successful comedian, but after learning about Derry, he loses all his confidence. Just like the 2017 film, IT Chapter Two follows the 1986 novel by horror writer …

Legendary talk-show host Katherine Newbury (Oscar® winner Emma Thompson) is a pioneer in her field. The only woman ever to have a long-running program on late night, she keeps her writers’ room on a short leash ― and all male. But when her ratings plummet and she is accused of being a “woman who hates women,” Katherine puts gender equality on her to-do list and impulsively hires Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling), a chemical plant efficiency expert from suburban Pennsylvania, as the first and only female on her writing staff. With rumors swirling that Katherine is being replaced …

Joaquin Phoenix Is A Perfect Fit for The Joker

We are only a few months away from the premiere of the Joker. Joaquin Phoenix will portray the infamous villain from the DC universe. The Joker has been portrayed by many well- known actors, but for a stand-alone origin story will Joaquin Phoenix be able to portray the Joker in due fashion? The simple answer to the question above is YES. Phoenix is an amazing actor with a wide range in history with the roles he has portrayed. He has been nominated for various awards including the Academy Awards for his work in Gladiator, Walk the Line, and The Master. Even when he’s not on a film set Phoenix can still make people talk about his performance. This was the case all the way back in 2009 when he appeared on the David Letterman show. During his appearance, Joaquin looked unkept and was wearing sunglasses and was just weird. His appearance got many people talking including myself. Joaquin would appear a year and a half later again on David Letterman’s show and apologized to Letterman and explained that It was …
