From the second that Wilson Pickett’s guitar hits your ears, it’s a signal to buckle your seatbelt and hold on the for the ride. Rick Hall’s incredible (depressing) story, Keith Richard’s hilarious interviews & everything in between. Lynyrd Skynyrd, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Bono, Alicia Keys, Wilson Pickett, John Paul White, Allman Brothers
Saw this at Sundance and you do not want to miss it. I can barely even contain my excitement.
The first movie written & directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who also stars in it) has released it’s first official trailer! It’s set for wide release in October so everyone mark your calendars!
For those of you who appreciate Matthew McConaughey in a more substantial role, “Mud” comes out in theaters tomorrow. Reese Witherspoon and Tye Sheridan also delivered great performances. It had a successful run at Cannes followed by Sundance, which was where I saw it. I would definitely recommend it.
A show about Hannibal Lecter helping an FBI criminal profiler catch serial killers sounds like a good idea. But whoever thought they could pull it off with anyone other than Sir Anthony Hopkins playing Dr. Lecter was definitely mistaken. Such an iconic role, those shoes can’t be filled.
Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates. I can’t even. Look at his perfect little Anthony Perkins smirk goin’ on. Chills.
Check in on March 18th at 10/9c on A&E.
Two of my favorite musicians, working with two of my favorite film makers. Be still my beating heart<3
May I have your attention please!
The Criterion Collection films on hulu will be free (without hulu plus) all weekend!
So if anyone is looking for me, I’ll be holed up in my room, with my laptop, having a marathon. Ciao.
Monsters University! So excited!
I haven’t seen all of the movies I would have liked to, so I can’t say 100% who is “best” in each category. (I just added several movies to my already rather long list of films to watch ASAP.) Overall pretty pleased with the nominations. I feel like a few movies & people may have been overlooked (Bigelow was robbed of Best Director), and a few movies were included that I don’t feel necessarily should have been. I think it’s amazing that Best Leading Actress just made history with their youngest nominee being at least 4 years younger than the previous youngest nominee, who was 12.
