Marriage Story Review

"They're saying this is for Adam Driver what Kramer vs Kramer was for Dustin Hoffman. More about him than about her.  Scarlett, to me, is the open question. By now it's Driver vs Phoenix for best actor." - Melchiades - Andrew

"Mini-shutout to Alda, whom I loved and thought did absolute wonders in his what, 3 or 4 scenes. Great review!" -Alex

The Guardian the streaming series based on Love Simon, currently in the casting stage, will not feature ANY of the characters in the film. Hmmm. "based on" being a strange phrase then.

More after the jump including Disneyland's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, a Boy George biopic, an honor for Jane Fonda, and a new kind of action heroine...


Cartoon Brew so the long delayed live-action take on Akira is moving forward again with Taiki Waititi in the director's chair. The release date is supposedly going to be May 21st, 2021

Towleroad Boy George is getting a biopic after it worked so well (financially) for Freddie Mercury and Elton John. But why don't they just make his Broadway musical Taboo into a movie musical? That show was so underappreciated and its basically two biopics in one (Boy George plus Leigh Bowery) But it has great music.
Coming Soon we still can't quite believe that thsi movie isn't finished but The New Mutants is AGAIN  threatening to do reshoots. We'll believe that April 3rd, 2020 release date when the movie is actually on the screens and not a moment before.

Moby is a piece of shit. He hasn't made anything decent music and always comes off as a smug know-it-all who thinks he's smarter than everyone. I don't blame Natalie for not wanting to associate himself with that douchebag.

Regina Hall is currently being honored in my city's film festival (Seattle International Film Festival, aka SIFF) and damn does she deserve it. She goes above and beyond every time.

The Jake Lacy thirst, tho.

Leave Boy George alone,don't ruin all my 80's memories with these messy biopics.

the Moby stuff was blown waay out of proportion.who cares if he dated Portman or didn't. i find the huge backlash odd tbh.

June 1, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterhuh

markgordunk I think they’ll do right by boy George, because let’s be honest he’s not a big enough star to get some wide release big budget biopic. His movie will be smaller and therefore not as worried about turning off mainstream audiences with his personal life. His biopic won’t be a big enough deal to be sanitized.
