Interstellar

29 May

Recently I watched the full length trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie, Interstellar. According to the official movie website – In the future, governments and economies across the globe have collapsed, food is scarce, NASA is no more, and the 20th Century is to blame. A mysterious rip in spacetime opens and it’s up to whatever is left of NASA to explore and offer up hope for mankind.

Interstellar may have elements of time travel and alternate realities, but as usual, Nolan is keeping most details under wraps. The movie stars Academy Award winners, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine and Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain.

Nolan does an amazing job of combining science fiction with drama and I’m sure Interstellar will deliver in quality and casting. The only potential miscast actor could be Matthew McConaughey. Despite winning an Academy Award last year for Dallas Buyer’s Club, it’s difficult to look past his string of painful romantic comedies (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Failure to Launch, Fool’s Gold, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past…etc.) and his personal preference for playing bongo drums naked while smoking pot. His performance in Dallas Buyer’s Club has been his best in recent years, but McConaughey lacks the charisma and talent of other leading men like Michael Fassbender, Leonardo DiCaprio or Robert Downey Jr.

I find it painful to live in a world where Matthew McConaughey has an Oscar and Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t.

Interstellar opens November 7, 2014.

Now You See Me: Trailer

18 Nov

Now You See Me is a heist thriller starring Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine.

The movie follows a team of illusionist known as “The Four Horsemen” who steal from corrupt companies during their performances and then share the stolen money with the audience.

I’m undecided from the trailer.  It looks really over the top, but I’m sold since Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine are in it. Director Louis Leterrier previously helmed The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans and Transporter 2.
