Game Night Movie Review | Let’s Play

Well, I have to tell you that unless you are some kind of a die-hard snob, you will probably find Game Night (2018) far more entertaining than the average board game. Moreover, it is the perfect alternative if you want to persuade your friends to do something different on Saturday night. And if you happen to be a game buff, then this smart crime-thriller-comedy-mystery mash-up is right for you.

In a recent Q&A session on Reddit, the directors of Game Night (who by the way are huge fans of the board games) admitted that they make movies based on their own taste. In other words, they create films that they would love to watch themselves. They like to make the most fun out of this whole filmmaking thing. This is just one of the reasons Game Night turned out to be a huge success in the box-office.

‘Bob Weinstein on the line. He says he’s from Buffalo.’ A First-Person Perspective on the Early Years of Miramax Films

The Weinstein Company assets will be purchased by the Ron Burkle-backed Maria Contreras-Sweet, and all things Weinstein will be removed from whatever remains. After a nearly four-decade run, the legacy of the most successful specialized distributor in history comes down to the last five tumultuous months that mark an inglorious (if not inglourious) end.

The Weinsteins made its first big Oscar splash in 1990 with “My Left Foot,” but they’d already been around for some time. Long before I covered box office for IndieWire, I spent 30 years as a film buyer, booking for theaters — and was a first-hand witness to Harvey and Bob Weinstein’s rise. Here’s my perspective on how they grew from a small outlier to an indie powerhouse.

“Bob Weinstein on the line. He says he’s from Buffalo.”

Back in 1981, phone calls were announced by a receptionist. As a young film buyer for M&R Theaters,

Rachel McAdams is sitting in the parking lot of Martins Millwork, a purveyor of fine home building materials, in rural Georgia where she’s visiting some friends just before Christmas.

“I was coming back from Target. I was just getting suction cups for our Christmas wreaths and I’m now pulled over in the middle of, I don’t really know where,” she says with a laugh, apologizing for being 10 minutes late for our call. Halfway through our interview she has to placate a curious Martins employee who wants her to move on. She gives him a little wave and tells him sorry, that she’ll be gone soon. So Canadian.

How Billy Wilder made the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre fun … and romantic

Google “Valentine’s Day movies” and you’ll find all sorts of links to stories about romantic movies to watch on Valentine’s Day with your significant other.

I don’t have to actually go to any of those links to know what I’ll find there: “When Harry Met Sally,” “Titanic,” “Pretty Woman,” “Sleepless in Seattle,” “The Notebook” and some versions of “Romeo & Juliet” and “An Affair to Remember.” (Okay, I did go to one link and found the subversive suggestion of “Harold and Maude.” I liked that.)

If you were to confine your search to romantic movies that won the Oscar, you’d be surprised how few there are. In nine decades, voters found less than 10 swooners to honor as the year’s best picture. And that counts love stories that do not end well for the lovers, including “Casablanca,” “West Side Story,” “Titanic” and “Out of Africa.

Is The J.J. Abrams Produced Film Kolma with Daisy Ridley Actually Cloverfield 5

J.J. Abrams sure does love playing in the world of Cloverfield. He also seems to enjoy surprising us with the Cloverfield film announcements. 10 Cloverfield Lane, The Cloverfield Paradox, and the upcoming Overlord, were all developed as secret Cloverfield projects. Now, another J.J. Abrams-produced film project called Kolma might end up being a fifth Cloverfield film! That film stars Daisy Ridley. It makes me wonder if Star Wars: Episode IX will actually end up being Cloverfield 6!

Kolma is a remake of a 2003 Israeli TV movie. It was described as “a cross between a loftier, more mystical version of The Notebook and Albert Brooks‘ 1991 fantasy romance Defending Your Life, the project follows a young couple who get in a car accident that leaves the man dead. 50 years later, the old woman is about to cross over and make the choice whether to reunite with her long-lost love in the hereafter

Harrison Ford Helps Woman After She Crashes Car Off the Highway

Harrison Ford Helps Woman After She Crashes Car Off the Highway
Indiana Jones to the rescue!

Harrison Ford was a real-life hero on Sunday when, while driving down California State Road 126, he witnessed a woman lose control of her vehicle and swerve into an embankment, fire officials in Santa Paula, California, told ABC News.

The 75-year-old actor, along with several other good samaritans, helped the woman get to safety before the paramedics arrived at the scene.

The Walking Dead's Regina Looks Completely Different in Her Other Big Role

Image Source: AMC I know what you've been thinking: "Who's this new badass b*tch on The Walking Dead?" Regina is introduced in season eight's first episode, "Mercy." Since then, we've seen her character build up pretty quickly, and it looks like she'll be taking on a big role as this season plays out. But who is the actress, and where have you seen her before? Traci Dinwiddie made her film debut in 1998 in the TV movie Target Earth, in which she played Dep. Madeline Chandler, one of the agents put on the case to find a missing girl. You might better recognize her though from her role as Veronica in The Notebook (2004) and her short stint as Dancer #5 in Black Knight (2001). She's also guest-starred in a few popular TV shows, including One Tree Hill and Dawson's Creek. Despite some of her softer roles, do not be mistaken, Dinwiddie is no stranger to psychological thrillers.

Happy Birthday, Rachel McAdams! Let's Look Back at Some of Her Most Fetch Movie Lines
Today marks Rachel McAdams' birthday, and while it may be hard to believe (because didn't she play high schooler Regina George, like, yesterday), she's turning 39! The actress got her start in Hollywood playing smaller roles beginning in 2001 when she was just 23. Her first major role was in 2004's Mean Girls in which she played 17-year-old Regina (despite being 26), and shortly after that, she took on Allie Hamilton in our favorite watch-to-make-us-cry movie, The Notebook. Since then, McAdams has stayed at the top of our favorite actresses list, taking on movies like Wedding Crashers, The Vow and Southpaw.

‘The Notebook’ Director Nick Cassavetes Boards ‘Have You Seen Her?’
The Notebook” director Nick Cassavetes has signed on to helm the romantic drama “Have You Seen Her?” from Metalwork Pictures and Paris Film Inc., with shooting set for early next year.

Cassavetes will direct from a script he is co-writing with Paul Johansson. Andrew Levitas will produce for Metalwork Pictures, with his Rogue Black label financing. Rob Paris will produce under his Paris Film banner alongside co-writer Johansson.

Producers are keeping the logline for “Have You Seen Her?” under wraps except for saying that it is an international romance in the vein of “The Notebook,” which launched the careers of Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in 2004. The story is an original idea that Cassavetes has been developing for more than a decade.

Nick and I have literally been on the verge of writing this for years,” Johansson said. “We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Rob and Andrew who have put us on a very fast
