Life Itself

Last night, everyone shed more than a few tears at the season finale of Dan Fogelman‘s This is Us. But Fogelman is much more than a showrunner. He’s also a filmmaker, and now he will bring us to tears once more in Life Itself.

Not to be confused with the Roger Ebert documentary of the same name, Life Itself is a multi-generational film that tells the story of how love and one shared event can connect us all. It stars Olivia Wilde, Oscar Isaac, Mandy Patinkin, Laia Costa, Annette Bening, and Antonio Banderas. Amazon Studios ha released a teaser trailer for the film, which you can find below.

Movie Review: Wonder

wonder review header

Wonder
Director: Stephen Chbosky
Screenwriter: Stephen Chbosky
Cast: Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay, Izabela Vidovic, Mandy Patinkin, Daveed Diggs, Noah Jupe, Danielle Rose Russell
Distributor: Lionsgate
Rated PG | 113
Release Date: November 17, 2017

Based on the children’s novel of the same name, Wonder inspires with its virtuous themes that tell its audience to do the right thing. On the surface, Stephen Chbosky‘s film looks like one of those schmaltzy films so formulaic that you probably already know that it is going to hit all the right emotional notes at all the right times.

But sometimes predictability is not so bad, and underneath that surface, there is something honest and heartfelt about it. There is a refreshing message that reminds us when given the choice to be right or be kind, we should be kind. Check out my full review of Wonder below.

Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here Trailer

Last month we saw the first trailer for Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff‘s second effort as director after Garden State and the movie which he somewhat controversially got help in making by using the crowdfunding website Kickstarter. That first trailer was more of a teaser, but now the first official full trailer has been released online.

Whether you’re bothered by Braff’s strategy in making the movie or not, it’s hard not to feel good things watching these trailers.

You can check out the full trailer for Wish I Was Here below.

Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here

Zach Braff‘s long-awaited directorial follow-up to his 2004 hit Garden State, Wish I Was Here, has traveled an interesting road. Braff took to Kickstarter to fund the movie—and had much success in doing so—but faced some backlash from those who felt someone of his status shouldn’t be seeking the donations of fans to finance a project.

With all of that in the past, the movie has been made and had a strong showing at the Sundance Film Festival before being picked up by Focus Features for distribution in North America. Now the first teaser trailer for Wish I Was Here has been released, and can be seen below.

The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is Dead Like Me: The Complete Collection on DVD for only $29.99 (that’s 57% off the list price of $69.98).

This collection includes both seasons of the former ShowTime series, as well as the more recent direct-to-DVD sequel Dead Like Me: Life After Death. This release also comes with deleted scenes, cast commentary, and a photo gallery, as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette. There’s also “The Music of Dead Like Me,” “Dead Like Me…..Again,” and “Putting Life Into Death” featurettes.

Created by Bryan Fuller, this series centers on George (Ellen Muth), an 18-year-old girl who dies and becomes a grim reaper, where she helps the souls of newly dead move on to the afterlife, though she is stuck in this world unable to move on herself. The show was able to cleverly combine humor with drama, as George reluctantly performed her reaper duties while trying to hold down her day job at a temp agency. George learns the way of the reaping undead from her fellow reapers, lead by taskmaster Rube, wonderfully played by Mandy Patinkin.
