For whatever reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, I’ve never been a fan of the “Peter Pan” story or any of its iterations to the big screen. Something about it has just never interested me and always made me feel icky. On the other hand, ever since Pride and Prejudice, I’ve been a huge fan of Joe Wright. Alright so The Soloist was a bit of a misstep, but everything else he’s directed has a special visual flair and genuine emotional context to it that jaw drops me every time.
So here I am faced with a dilemma and really hoping that Joe Wight’s revisionist edition of Peter Pan will land that left hook to jaw drop me once again. I have to admit, the trailer starts off sluggish, but begins to wear me down in the middle and totally wins me over by the end.
Pan opens wide on October 9th and stars Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, Amanda Seyfried, Garrett Hedlund and Levi Miller as Peter Pan.
Just in time for Halloween, Guillermo del Toro has got our backs. Mia Wasikowska and Tom Hiddleston star as some sort of budding romance is befuddled by their living environment; an old mansion with spooky secrets and haunted realms within the walls. Unfortunately every movie these days has to star Jessica Chastain, so she’s in here too.
The gorgeous cinematography and creative set design looks to be more than enough to offset any other superficial complaints I may have. It will be fun to have a truly, good ol’ fashioned haunted house story just as the leaves are beginning to drop and the cold wind is howling. In other words, October 16th. Have a look at the newest trailer for Crimson Peak.
Throughout the “Game of Thrones” season, The Cinecast devotes a good portion of the show to recapping the latest episode. Surprisingly, it has proven to be one of the more popular segments of the show in the last couple of years. So I wanted to bring listener’s attention to another popular television show podcast that is loosely related to the RowThree media empire: The Buchel Review.
The final episode of the massively popular “Mad Men” is almost upon us and there are loads of resources covering the series and its inevitable conclusion. But we’ve got RowThree family in the mix as occasional/Cinecast/guest, Aaron Hartung, and his pals have been recapping the last few episodes of the final season as they air each week.
If you’re a fan of Mad Men, this is one of the best podcasts you’ll find discussing the show in a “water cooler & cigarettes” format. And as we’ve mentioned before, Aaron certainly has a voice for radio and is very soothing to stick in your ear. Check out The Buchel Review on PodBean and see what you think. Once addicted, definitely subscribe to their feed in your favorite podcast catcher to download the last couple of episodes as they become available.
Not at all sure how this is going to work out. Probably not at all. I always thought Rusty was kind of the level-headed, logical one. But he has kids and all of a sudden he’s a dunder-head? Like father, like son I guess.
Very little in this trailer works for me. Again, nostalgia is nostalgia. Bringing it back 30 years after the fact very rarely works out the way we think it might in our heads. Ok ok, that last bit with the Ferrari is kind of funny…
