The top question we have for the new Jennifer Lopez led “rom-com” “Shotgun Wedding” is who is this for? We are absolutely fans of some of her other turns, “Maid in Manhattan” is a great movie and we won’t hear otherwise. However her latest, in which she stars opposite Josh Duhamel, is severely lacking in both romance and comedy.  Steve Coulter as Larry Fowler and Jennifer Coolidge as Carol Fowler in Shotgun Wedding.

Wondering why you haven’t heard a ton about “The Son” in spite of a star studded cast? Unfortunately it seems that there’s a good reason for this film remaining off the awards radar. Written and directed by Florian Zeller, and based on his own stage play of the same name, the film perhaps would have been better off sticking to the boards. Anthony Hopkins in “The Son” – Courtesy Sony Pictures Classics Zeller’s first film, “The Father,” was an emotional piece starring Anthony Hopkins as an aging man dealing with deteriorating memory. Hopkins and co-stars Olivia Colman, Imogen Poots, Olivia…

There appears to have been a lack of self awareness when “A Man Called Otto” producer Tom Hanks allowed himself to star in the film. The film is based on “A Man Called Ove” which is a Swedish novel that has already been adapted to the big screen once. The previous adaptation was actually nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Makeup and Hairstyling.  Mariana Treviño and Tom Hanks star in Columbia Pictures A MAN CALLED OTTO. photo by: Dennis Mong While we haven’t seen the previous celluloid interpretation, we can certainly say this about…

“The Pale Blue Eye” is a middling tale of the woes of a fictitious Edgar Allan Poe. Scott Cooper brings the 2003 novel of the same name by Louis Bayard to the big (and streaming) screen. Harry Melling stars as the fictitious version of Poe, who is enrolled at West Point. Who would’ve thought that of the “Harry Potter” actors, Melling would be in the most prestigious projects (including “Queen’s Gambit”). Christian Bale plays Augustus Landor, a former military man turned detective. Christian Bale illuminates a dark room in The Pale Blue Eye. Photo by SCOTT GARFIELD for Vanity Fair…
