Pixar’s “Inside Out” takes you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind. Riley, an 11-year-old girl who recently moved with her family to San Francisco, is not the main character but the setting for the film. Moviegoers will go inside her mind to explore how memories are formed and how a mixture of five emotions—Joy, Disgust, Anger, Fear and Sadness—defines life experiences. In theaters June 19, 2015.

According to Reddit, Lewis Black voices Anger, Mindy Kaling as Disgust, Bill Hader as Fear, Amy Poehler as Joy, and Phyllis Smith as Sadness.

Trailer: ‘Her‘ – Nov 20

Written and directed by Spike Jonze, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and Chris Pratt.

‘Siri the Movie’ looks pretty good.

I wish I liked this movie because of Spike Jonze’s insistence on directing some of my all-time favorite visuals or Joaquin Phoenix’s acting talent (I maintain that he was robbed last year for The Master) or some other appreciation of the art of movie-making. But then came “Skeletons” by The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and I’m already writing the pledge to share extra love with the people around me that, in a couple of months, watching Her will inspire.


Trailer: ‘The Counselor‘ – Oct 25

Directed by Ridley Scott, written by Cormac McCarthy, starring Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer, and Goran Visnjic.

The first produced original screenplay by McCarthy, apparently it’s just like his books. When the LA Times got in touch with him, Dean Norris (who you may know as Hank from Breaking Bad), “described a script containing far fewer of the normal connective tissue that sets up story and scene; instead McCarthy’s draft focused mostly on the human actions and interactions. And even those were stripped down.”

From a 1.5 year-old review of the script: “It’s a challenging piece of art, thought-provoking, no doubt, but I also think it may just be this strange and alienating movie to people who aren’t already fans of McCarthy. It feels exhausting and was certainly a punch to the gut.”

Any surprise that I’ve already registered to some random screenwriting forum that offers a download of this script?


Behind The Scenes Of SHARKNADO!!!!! 

A former roommate of mine did special effects for Sharknado. I haven’t yet found out how he got all those sharks inside that ‘nado, but I’ll be sure to report back!

Crystal Fairy & The Magic Cactus trailer

This movie follows Michael Cera on his low-key-est adventure yet, a road trip in order to trip on a beach with his bros. Then he accidentally invites a damn hippie along, played by a woman who I noted may have some Moltisanti in her genes: Gaby Hoffman.

I worry that the dry, timid humor that Michael Cera sometimes (okay usually) resorts to acting out won’t fit with the movie itself. An odyssey for mescaline and the ensuing mescaline odyssey build more vibrant expectations than Cera’s quirks and squeaks can fulfill.


Wow, the new Monsters Inc movie looks brutal. 

This is from Cabin In The Woods, and one of my favorite realizations watching it was noticing the Evil Dead reference of “Angry Molesting Tree” written on the whiteboard at the beginning, only to (much later in the movie) witness one of these mooks on the far left get impaled by a tree that looks pretty angry and may actually be molesting.

Trailer for Lil Bub and Friendz

The final shot of this trailer makes me want to see a Kanye West “Power”-style music video featuring Bub lounging in all her splendor. It’s time for this documentary, which isn’t just about Bub: it’s an examination of cats as memes and why they’re a pervasive force across the internet. Maybe. I hope it is, but I’ll also be happy if it’s just famous cats lookin’ pretty, Bub most of all.
