New VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE Trailer

Movie Review: While We're Young

While We're Young is quirky comedy genius that should make Woody Allen very jealous. Review by Matt Cummings In Noah Baumbach's While We're Young , the struggling documentary filmmaker Josh (Ben Stiller) is at a professional crossroads: his project has been incubating for 9 years, stuck in a self-important loop with no clear direction, while his wife Cordelia (Naomi Watts) sees Josh slowly growing less flexible and spontaneous. But all that changes when a blast of fresh air courtesy of hipsters Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried) reinvigorate the elder couple's lives, infusing them with Sinatra-style hats, a democratic music collection, and a finger-on-the-pulse connection to Brooklyn. Jamie is an aspiring filmmaker and soon finds himself attached to Josh like a son to a father; each begins to emulate the other, and before long they find themselves working on a project that Josh is initially unwilling to undertake.

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG Official Trailer

A film written and directed by Noah Baumbach, starring Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried, Charles Grodin and Adam Horovitz. Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are Josh and Cornelia Srebnick, happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class.

But as Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it’s plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion — retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next. For Josh, it’s as if a door has opened back to his youth — or a youth he wishes he once had. It’s not long before the restless forty-somethings, Josh and Cornelia, throw aside friends their own age — including Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz in

The Humbling Review: Meandering, Uneven VOD Release

The Humbling is an uneven, meandering affair that proves VOD is more dumping ground than viable alternative. Review by Matt Cummings In Director Barry Levinson's The Humbling , Al Pacino plays Simon Axler, a once famous stage actor who, after literally falling off stage, seeks to evaluate his life before father time takes it from him. He soon meets the daughter of his closest friend (Great Gerwig), a lesbian who's left a trail of pathetic exes in her wake, and the two strike up a relationship. Unfortunately, Simon isn't prepared for the chaos Pegeen will bring, as his dementia forces him to re-evaluate everything he knows. Based on the Phillip Roth novel, The Humbling can't decide if its a stinging satire or skit comedy. It starts off self-assured with several comedic skits that keep our attention, including Nina Ariana, a fellow nuthouse resident who wants to kill her husband for molesting their daughter. But the tide turns when Gerwig enters the pictu
