Adam Sandler’s Spirit Award Speech Was Hilarious

A bit late to the party with this one, but here’s the entire Adam Sandler speech the actor gave at the recent Film Independent Spirit Awards, where he won Best Male Lead for his terrific performance in the thriller Uncut Gems.

Sam Mendes’ War Movie 1917 Looks Incredible.

Here’s the latest trailer for the one continuous shot World War I movie 1917.

Director Sam Mendes, (Skyfall, American Beauty), apparently used a series of extra long takes to give the viewer the impression the movie is one continuous shot. The plot of 1917 rattles along like so:

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.

1917 is scheduled for release on January 10, 2020.

Trailer For Eco Documentary Anthropocene Is Incredible

As middle-aged white men with high blood pressure and cholesterol berate, imitate and ridicule a 16 year-old girl, whose only crime is to care about the welfare of the planet we all live on, scientific research is suggesting we all need to act fast if we have any hope of providing a future for our grand- kids.

If you’re still in some doubt about the validity of the climate change claims then gander awhile at this spectacular yet grim looking trailer for the new eco-documentary Anthropocene – The Human Epoch. It’s the third instalment of a trilogy of films which looks at the impact of humanity on natural development.

If anything, thanks to it’s wide sweeping, glorious shots, it gives the audience a sense of scale of the industrial impact the human race is inflicting on it’s habitat.

 

 

Uncut Gems Trailer – Adam Sandler Is A Dodgy Jewellery Dealer.

I have an appreciation for Adam Sandler. Not so much an appreciation of his many asinine comedies, (although his recent Netflix stand-up special was excellent), but an appreciation for an actor who can seamlessly switch from hilarious Happy Gilmore to pious Punch Drunk Love.

His latest venture looks extremely promising as he plays a dodgy, jeweller to the rich and famous who has to find a way to pay his debts when his merchandise is taken from one of his top sellers and girlfriend. Early word suggests Sandler’s performance could net him an award with rave reviews at various film festivals.

Uncut Gems is written and directed by the Safdie Brothers whose previous venture Good Time, which starred Robert Pattinson, was an excellent, dark crime noir story and one of the best films of 2017.

Uncut Gems is scheduled for release on December 13th.

The Breaking Bad Movie Is Now Complete

In news which shocked the film fan community it appears that the much talked about Breaking Bad spin-off movie, has completed filming and is now in the can.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Bob Odenkirk, who played crooked lawyer Saul Goodman in the original series and in the prequel series Better Call Saul, let slip that the production had wrapped and all footage was now complete.

He said: “I don’t know what people know and don’t know…I find it hard to believe you don’t know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They’ve done an amazing job of keeping it a secret.”

It is testament to series creator Vince Gilligan and his fabled attention to detail that nobody leaked information about the shoot. Not a single picture of any of the actors on set found it’s way online and there are no details about the film’s plot, except we know it focuses on Aaron Paul’s character Jessie Pinkman. It looks like Breaking Bad fans will have to wait until next year to find out if Walter White returns, once the movie is released on Netflix.
