Release Date: February 9, 2018

So it is all over — the Fifty Shades trilogy that tried to be more than just kinky unspoken sex and about two seemingly wildly incompatible characters getting together and sustaining a relationship. But the surprising thing about it is that despite how terrible the first feature, Fifty Shades Of Grey, was, the following installments were actually pretty tolerable to the point of enjoyment. Yes, the entire trilogy as a whole is pretty bad, and the lack of chemistry between leads Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan is clear, but by the time we get from Fifty Shades Darker to Fifty Shades Freed, we see that the franchise has embraced its absurdity.

The result is that we can enjoy the film for what it is. Regardless of how one may feel about the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed is just one of those films that is so bad it’s actually pretty good. And owning up to the fact that it can be mildly enjoyable is hard to admit. My full review below.

Fifty Shades Darker Trailer

Universal Pictures has released the second official trailer to Fifty Shades Darker starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The film is a sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, which ended awkwardly, I might add. However, devoted fans knew that the story wasn’t over, with this being a trilogy.

In the new trailer for the sequel, we see the two rekindle that relationship that involves kinky PDA, ghosts from Christian’s past, and other people who will complicate their relationship. Because what’s a good soapy drama without that. Check out the full trailer below.

Say what you will about Fifty Shades Of Grey, but if the film can gross a worldwide total of $571 million against a budget of $40 million and be nominated for one Academy Award, all the while being critically panned, well it must be doing something right. Granted, I wasn’t a huge fan of the film as a whole, but there were some interesting shots and lighting selections that caught my eye, and no, none of those involved the more “intimate” scenes.

So with its box office success and huge fanbase, there are many who are interested in seeing what could happen in its sequel, Fifty Shades Darker. And now Universal is giving you a sneak peek at what to expect from it. Check it out the teaser to the trailer here below.

‘Get A Job’ Trailer: Dusty Old Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick Comedy Finally Gets Pulled Off Shelf

Get A Job starring Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick

Back in 2012, there was a little movie called Get A Job from director Dylan Kidd (Rodger Dodger, P.S.), starring Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick as twentysomething year olds with what they thought was excellent job security, only to realize that their jobs weren’t as secure as first thought. Going through the motions of finding a job, the film starts to reveal that it really isn’t so much about what the characters are struggling with, but more of a romantic comedy that uses the Great Recession as a subplot.

Then there is the fact that the film feels a little bit outdated, since production was completed way back in 2012, where it has since been sitting on the shelf at CBS Films. Now, we can finally see the film for what it is, in the newly release trailer. Check it out below.

HBO
RELEASE DATE: June 11, 2013

With shows like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, and True Blood leading the charge, it’s clear that HBO’s hit shows can often have a hefty budget and rely heavily on visual effects and costumes and so on. One of their newer series, The Newsroom, is not one of those shows.

Created by Aaron Sorkin, the show is simple enough on the surface—being about the inner workings of a news team—but a collection of lives intertwined within this newsroom setting leads to plenty of interesting storylines as the show progresses. Instead of the aforementioned effects and costumes, it instead relies on two key things: writing and acting, and nails both of them consistently.

Confessions Of A Cinema Junkie: The Art Of The Mixtape, Coming Of Age Films And Drew Barrymore’s Whip It

“All right, let’s show ’em what we got, guys! Get out there on the ice and let ’em know you’re there. Get that fuckin’ stick in their side. Let ’em know you’re there! Get that lumber in his teeth. Let ’em know you’re there!”
— Reggie Dunlop from Slap Shot

“Now that I’ve got school covered, I’ve only have the world outside these walls to fuck up.”
— Diana Guzman from Girlfight

“Well, put on some skates and be your own hero.”
— Maggie Mayhem from Whip It

The sonic fury of a film’s soundtrack is integral to its lasting presence. The soundtrack to Drew Barrymore‘s Whip It is a furiously beautiful compliment to this potent and rousing coming of age film. Barrymore understands the importance of a film’s soundtrack. She understands how vital the musical component is to the film. All one has to do is read her note that she wrote for the soundtrack album:

“Music is the soundtrack to our lives, and when you put music and film together, it is a powerful combination.”

“I have always been someone that had a great appreciation for the art of the mix tape.”

“This soundtrack is my mix tape for you.”

Drew Barrymore gets it. She understands the relationship between music and film. While watching the film, I would crack a smile as songs by The Breeders, Tilly And The Wall, The Ramones, The Chordettes, Dolly Parton, Peaches, and many others would blare out during the film’s many magical and cathartic moments. A good soundtrack is essentially an awesome mix tape. Drew Barrymore understands this all too well for her directorial debut.
