The Gushing Cinephile: May 13, 2013
Okay guys, so I came to the conclusion that since I have so many miscellaneous thoughts and obsessions regarding the film industry, it would prove useless to limit my Monday posts to a specific aspect of cinema. Therefore, I have decided to combine all of my “gushing” into a brand new segment entitled “The Gushing Cinephile” which will be posted weekly, every Monday. You can expect these posts to contain various information, discussion topics, questions, polls, trailers, posters, etc…So without any further delay, let’s get into the first week of The Gushing Cinephile.
First up, since it’s the first week the content will be sparse, but I promise it will grow as time passes. Also, I plan on changing the layout of the site, so don’t be alarmed if it looks different.
It’s been a while since I posted any new trailers that have caught my eye, so I figured I’d catch up a bit on that.
The Bling Ring: Now, I know this film is generating a lot of negativity out of the gate. To be honest, the first couple of trailers heavily remind me of Spring Breakers in a sense. However, it is directed and written by Sofia Coppola and a majority of her films seem to draw this sort of divided audience, for example, Lost in Translation. I am an optimist and I thoroughly enjoyed Lost in Translation so The Bling Ring is one film I am anxiously awaiting to see.
August: Osage County: It looks like John Wells is ready to assert himself in the directing game with August: Osage County. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, and Meryl Streep, this drama-comedy is set for release late in 2013.
The World’s End: The final entry into the “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy” which first two features are Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Again directed and written by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, this finale also adds the brilliant Martin Freeman.
Next up, the first official picture from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes featuring Jason Clarke and Andy Serkis. The upcoming film also stars Gary Oldman and is directed by Matt Reeves.
Lastly, I would like to issue a question to anyone who cares to answer it. I watched The Snowtown Murders yesterday and it was fairly disturbing to say the least, I’ll have my review of it up by the end of the week. My question is, what is the most disturbing film you’ve ever seen? I am an avid fan of pushing myself to the limit and would love some recommendations. I just want to know which film personally gets under your skin. If you have a film like that, please comment below.
