THE CROODS: A NEW AGE Poster & Trailer Announcement

Movie Review: EIGHTH GRADE 'One of the best films this year'

Eighth Grade is written and directed by Bo Burnham, the one of a kind VINE star and also Stand up Comedian who decided to take his chance with his first directorial effort and written effort for a film, which might I add paid off in so many ways. Eighth Grade is a coming of age film about a young girl name Kayla (Elsie Fisher) who is in her last week of the hell hole I like to call Eighth Grade. She trying to survive and make it on her way to high school. Now from the premise this sounds like another indie coming of age film something like Lady Bird last year or Edge of 17 from the year before.

All of which were fantastic, but This film is special and very different in the best of ways. This is not only one of the best films of the year, but one of the most relatable coming of age films I’ve ever seen. Burnham somehow found a way in his directing and writing to take me back to Eighth Grade and remember memories that I buried away. (for good reason) But took me right back to my 8th grade class where I was a brat and kind of a dick. Like most kids were or are at that age. The film surprised me in how much I could relate and talking to others at the screening it seems like it brought them into that sense as well. That is something I find really hard to capture in film and for a first time director my hat is off to you.

The film wouldn’t work though if it wasn’t for our main star in here, who I will proclaim now YOU MUST REMEMBER ELSIE FISHER'S NAME. She is a star in the making and gives one of the most heartfelt and personal performances of the year. She is not only vulnerable but also relatable in every way her character is framed. It doesn’t matter how old you are there will be something from her performance and this film for you to relate too. Josh Hamilton also pops in as her father who gives such a subtle but brilliant performance that brings a lot of the most heartfelt moments to the film as well. Eighth Grade is one of the most memorable, relatable, and heartfelt films this year.

I am almost willing to call it a masterpiece of coming of age films, but i'll save that to see how It works on rewatches. Find this film this weekend and see it, it's one of the few indie films that I think works on all levels and works for everyone. The performances to the direction this film was fantastic.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …

Under the Skin Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson To Play A Sexy Alien
Scarlett Johansson as the perfect woman? A perfect alien woman?

That is what FilmNation is selling at AFM, launching Under the Skin, a sci-fi drama from Sexy Beast writer-director Jonathan Glazer.

“Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey -- her voracious sexuality.”
But, wait, there’s more. “She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.”

Glazer co-wrote the script with Walter Campbell and is eying a production late spring 2011.

In a statement, FilmNation CEO Glen Basner said, “We’re so very excited to be working on t…
