Movie Review: Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot 'Jonah Hill best performance of his career'

Gus Van Sant ( Good Will Hunting ) brings us Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foo t a Dramedy that tells the life of John Callahan and the rocky path to sobriety after a life changing accident. John Callahan is played by Joaquin Phoenix who once again transforms into a role and leaves the audience not seeing the actor but the actual person he is portraying. Rooney Mara and Jack Black also show up in the film for more of a glorified cameo per say. That doesn’t mean they don’t bring their A game. Mara turns in a wonderful performance that engrosses us into her sweet character, and Jack Black leaves me wondering when he will tackle more dramatic material, he is fantastic in one scene towards the end of the film. The big scene stealer for the whole entire film though that warrants any film buff into seeing this movie though has to be Jonah Hill , the guy not only steals the movie from the great Phoenix, but hands down gives the best performance of his career. This guy can only go

Promised Land Review. Only Scratches The Surface

Promised Land Review By: MattInRC Our 2013 movie reviews kick off with the the superficial and long-winded Promised Land . A central topic in the 2012 Presidential election focused on energy independence. Both candidates spoke about its necessity, tossing buzz words into the air like clay pigeons. Yet, the one word both treaded lightly upon was 'fracking,' the process of mining natural gas from shale deep underground. The process is potentially dangerous, having been linked to earthquakes in New York state and poisoning water supplies elsewhere. The movie Promised Land seeks to plant its flag decidedly against fracking by pitting the people of a small town against the powers of a multi-national corporation called Global. Written by stars Matt Damon (Dogma) and John Krasinski (Leatherheads), the film features a thoroughly unlikable team of gas company pitchpeople in Steve Butler (Damon) and the roughly-hewn Sue Thomason ( Frances McDormand , Fargo) as they att

PROMISED LAND Trailer. What Would You Do?

We got our hands on the first trailer for  PROMISED LAND , the film directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Rosemarie DeWitt, Frances McDormand, Hal Holbrook and Titus Welliver . Written by Damon and Krasinski and based on a story by Dave Eggers, the film tells the story of corporate salesman Steve Butler ( Damon ), who seeks drilling rights in distressed communities, and local man Dustin Noble ( Krasinski ), who looks to oppose the sale.  Promised Land is the new contemporary drama directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk). Matt Damon plays Steve Butler, an ace corporate salesman who is sent along with his partner, Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand), to close a key rural town in his company’s expansion plans. With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company’s offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems like an

Gus van Sant Going To Direct Restless

Gus van Sant Is In Talks To Develop and Direct Restless Gus van Sant is in negotiations with Columbia to develop and direct "Restless," an original screenplay by first-time screenwriter Jason Lew. Brian Grazer , Ron Howard and Bryce Howard will produce for Imagine Entertainment . The logline is being kept under wraps, though it is described as contemporary and distinctive take on young love. Lew and Bryce Howard attended New York University together and it was there that Lew first wrote the story as a play. Howard, who had acted in plays with Lew, got a peek at the story and encouraged him to write it as a screenplay. After several drafts and a "gestation period," Bryce Howard brought it to her father Ron who, taken with Lew's perspective and originality, wanted to further develop it for Imagine. Lew kept on working on the screenplay with Imagine execs, who ultimately showed it to Van Sant. Grazer was looking to reteam with his friend, with whom he worke
