Dirty Dancing Fathom Events 05

Dirty Dancing

Written by Eleanor Bergstein
Directed by Emile Ardolino

Vestron Films
Rated PG-13 | 100 minutes
Release date: August 21st, 1987

Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) thought it would be a regular summer in the Catskills with her family. A daddy’s girl, she and her mom, dad, and sister Lisa (Jerry Orbach, Kelly Bishop, Jane Brucker) went to Kellerman’s resort, that catered to the rich, complete with Ivy-League waiters. Kellerman’s also had the dance people, who gave lessons and entertained the guests. Baby, who wanted to be in the Peace Corps and always believed the best, was floored by the “dirty dancing,” and dazzled by Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), lead dancer. After an impromptu dance lesson, Baby inadvertently ended up trying to help the other lead dancer Penny (Cynthia Rhodes), who got knocked up by one of the waiters, Robbie (Max Cantor). Stepping into her mambo shoes, Johnny trained Baby to dance, and they fell in love. No summer romance would sizzle unless it was forbidden, and theirs was no different. This was the story of Dirty Dancing, which propelled a cast of virtual unknowns into instant fame.

At long last another trailer for the Power Rangers has arrived. It was beginning to look like the first trailer was the only one we were going to get considering that it’s January and the film is going to be released in March.

As with all new trailers, there’s also brand new footage. This time we finally get to see the five title heroes in their morphed up forms, and a glimpse of the five new zords and their unified Megazord form. Plus our very first look at Bryan Cranston as Zordon and Bill Hader as Alpha 5. Check it out below.

‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ Trailer: How Good It Is To See Mr. Wick So Soon

John Wick Chapter 2 header

Of course, he’s back. Having a one and done film for John Wick (Keanu Reeves) didn’t seem appropriate for the man, the myth, and the legend. So the successful film about the former assassin who came out of retirement after the son of a crime boss killed his beloved dog (which was also a gift from his dying wife) is getting a well-deserved sequel, and it looks like it will live up to expectations.

Lionsgate has released the second trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, and the action can only go up from here. Especially since there is a mark on him.

Check out the latest trailer here below.

Movie Review: La La Land
eelyajekiM   |  

La La Land

La La Land
Director: Damien Chazelle
Screenwriter: Damien Chazelle
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, J. K. Simmons
Distributor: Summit Entertainment
Rated PG-13 | 128 minutes
Release Date: December 9, 2016

There’s really no simple way to put this, but La La Land is one of those rare, unforgettable movie going experiences that will be talked about for years to come. And that doesn’t even sum up how good it is. Damien Chazelle‘s follow-up to Whiplash reminds us of why we go to the movies, and believe me, this is a movie that needs to be seen in a theater.

The film pays homage to the days of Hollywood where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers graced the screen with beautiful songs and elegant dances. But it is also a love letter to the luster and sparkle of Los Angeles, which attracts the hopeless romantics and the dreamers hoping to find love and reach for the stars, all the while learning that the city can also be crushing and unforgiving. In the end, Chazelle’s latest film is a true work of art that cannot be missed. Check out the full review below.

Patriots Day Header

Peter Berg‘s strength is in his ability to tell a gripping story, and give it a cinematic feel. The intense military drama Lone Survivor and the powerful oil-rig disaster Deepwater Horizon, were all fine examples of dramatized based on true-life stories that captured the world’s attention. Come next year, he will do the same with Patriots Day, a film that chronicles the events that transpired before, during, and after the Boston Marathon bombing that took place in April 2013.
