Somehow my mind wants to enter into the realm of “pelvic sorcery” jokes, because honestly guys I’m not mentally over Guardians of the Galaxy. The summer is officially over and it’s time to look ahead to the next few months of Oscar discussions and compelling dramas that try to highlight issues and anything that we find important in our world.
I’ve been reading some pretty good buzz on this one coming out of Sundance this past weekend and the trailer looks fantastic. In the last few years I’ve been coming around on horror films and this one seems right in that sweet spot that all the Derickson’s and Wan’s are hitting for me right now.
Jason Bateman has been an actor I can never quite peg down to be honest. He has this off-kilter way too nice a guy dad in Arrested Development, and after that he always seems to play these comedic roles that almost asks him to be as unfunny as possible. He’s always played the proverbial butt of all the jokes in his films I find. Here however he’s continued to play that same wrong end of the stick guy, but he owns it. He owns his own weird thing in doing a children’s spelling bee on technicality and it just looks so amazingly right. He has the right brand of asshole written for him, so I’m down.
I'm Andrew, a software developer/all around technologist by day and a film enthusiast by night. I grew up on the silly things of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Three Amigos and Nightmare on Elm Street, so it makes perfect sense to me to have my love for film become ever expanding by the minute.
I started writing about film somewhere about 2005 on Facebook, and slowly but surely I moved on to blogging here on the internet. I've been featured with a few other publications along the way and am always looking for the opportunity to do more with this passion of mine.
So enjoy the words, listen to the many podcasts I'll do in the years to come, and let me know what you think.
