BBC Films
Originally Released: January 22, 2009

With the big announcement over the last week of Peter Capaldi turning out to be the next Doctor for Doctor Who, I thought it might be timely to take a look at some of the work he’s been well-known for. The series, The Thick Of It, showcases one his most iconic characters: Malcolm Tucker, the foul-mouthed spin doctor in the British Government.

The series spawned a movie called In The Loop, where the government crosses paths with the American government in the planning for invasion of a Middle Eastern country.

The story begins with the leaders of the respective nations already planning on progressing forward with a preemptive strike on a country, in a comic parody of historic political events during the post-9/11 era. While the leaders convene committees and meetings across the globe to push the case for conflict, other operatives behind the scenes work on efforts to stop the warmongering.

The Good Guy

The Good Guy
Directed by: Julio DePietro
Starring: Alexis Bledel, Scott Porter, Bryan Greenberg, Anna Chlumsky, Aaron Yoo, Andrew McCarthy
Roadside Attractions
Release Date: February 19, 2010 (Limited)

If you know me or if you read the site, you probably wouldn’t think of me as someone who was into the lovey-dovey romance movies. Truth is, while I really get sickened by the ridiculously cheesy and unrealistic “rom-coms” that are mass produced to steal the incomes of a multitude of tissue-wielding women, I can admit that I enjoy a well-done romance movie from time to time. I’ve never been much of a relationship kind of person, but have still been considered something of a romantic at times, and so long as the movie is entertaining and doesn’t get out of hand, I’m down for a viewing!

Enter The Good Guy: a new film from Roadside Attractions and director Julio DePietro about a young, seemingly-perfect couple living the big city life. The movie debuted last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and follows Beth (Alexis Bledel), a sweet and beautiful young woman with a good job and a great group of friends in New York City. Beth has been seeing Tommy (Scott Porter), a Wall Street hot shot, for a few months now, and all seems to be going very well with the couple who are preparing to head to Italy on a business/vacation trip. At first the pair appear to be living the modern day fairy tale life, but when Beth meets Daniel (Bryan Greenberg) — who just happens to be the new member of Tommy’s team at work — she begins wondering if she’s where she wants to be. Tommy has all those good looks females desire and a big money job, while Daniel shows her a new, much more sensitive side to the male species. This of course creates that age-old dilemma for women: do you go for all the looks and financial security, or do you want someone who “gets you”?
