As long as you are not expecting the rock and roll version of “Mamma Mia,” (dirty fun, I guess) the coast should be all clear for you to enjoy the movie version of “Rock of Ages,” a musical tribute to 1980s hair metal that was originated as a musical in Hollywood, found its way to […]Jamming With… Bob Marley & The Wailers Lead Guitarist Junior Marvin
When you are an award winning director, folks do come to you with offers. But when other award-winning colleagues such as Martin Scorsese and Jonathan Demme pass on the same project, you have got to wonder about what you are singing up for. Yet Kevin McDonald, the award-winning director of the new documentary “Marley” feels […]Chatting With Cabin In The Woods’ Fran Kranz (INTERVIEW)
Why do we feel compelled to destroy and torture youth? Apparently, this is one of the messages, among the many, that first time Director Drew Goddard (Lost, Cloverfield) and co-writer and partner in crime, Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dollhouse) had in mind when they decided to let their imaginations roar and scramble viewers heads in […]Bully, The Doc That Launched A Movement: Exclusive Interview With Director Lee Hirsch
While I enjoy a pleasant conversation with Kelby, one of the subjects in the much anticipated documentary “Bully”, the movie’s director, a very tired Lee Hirsch joins us for a more formal interview process. After introductions are dispensed with, it’s clear to me that this has been a long day for all involved with this […]WORTH 12 BUCKS?: “The Hunger Games” (REVIEW)
May the odds be ever in favor of The Hunger Games…the screen version. The Scholastic version has already beaten all the odds and Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy, has sold over 26 million copies in the United States alone. The same fan base responsible for these numbers is probably the same […]Jesse Williams Is Not Just a Pretty Face
A very focused and extremely eloquent Jesse Williams sat down with GlobalGrind at the Sundance Film festival this week to talk about his newest passion: the launching of his spanking new production company, farWord Inc. HOT TO DEF: AnnaLynne McCord Stunning In Red At 2012 Sundance Film Festival Jesse plans to focus on purposeful film, […]WORTH 12 BUCKS?: Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (REVIEW)
Light the fuse it is! Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol, the fourth brio-filled installment of the robust MI franchise, lights the fuse and then some… Director Brad Bird (Ratatouille, The Incredibles), in his first live action big budget movie wastes not a nano second in showing that while the road from animation to live action may be […]“Chuffed To Meet You” An Interview With Tomas Alfredson And Gary Oldman
Upon first meeting Swedish director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In) and British actor Gary Oldman (Batman Returns, Harry Potter), who came to town to promote their spy thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, I am immediately reminded of Laurel and Hardy. While Oldman, tall and long, demurs elegantly at the table wearing a […]WORTH 12 BUCKS?: Contagion (REVIEW)
Be scared. Very scared. And please get your supply of hand sanitizers ready to go before you set out to watch Steven Soderbergh’s much anticipated movie Contagion. You will need it upon exiting the theater. Big time. Based on what could be a very likely scenario anywhere in the world, Contagion has a simple premise. […]WORTH 12 BUCKS?: "Colombiana"
The beautiful and talented actress Zoe Saldana can kick-ass like it’s nobody’s business. That much is clear in her new movie, Colombiana. This is all good. Angelina Jolie could use some company in this department. But can she play a kick-ass killer in a movie that does not make us laugh? We have yet to […]“The Whistleblower” Speaks: Director Larysa Kondracki And Real-Life Whistleblower Kathy Bolkovac
First-time filmmaker Larysa Kondracki and “whistleblower” Kathy Bolkovac look very tired. After back to back rounds of national press up and down the East Coast, they are here to talk to me and do it all over again. But as tired as they appear, the second they start talking about their movie Whistleblower, all […]WORTH 12 BUCKS?: “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” (REVIEW)
Simian summer it is. Anyone who has seen James Marsh’s thought provoking documentary Project Nim, about a chimp named Nim, will have their viewing experience of Rise of the Planet of the Apes a bit enhanced. And then some. After Nim, Rise feels like the more commercial and entertaining version of the life of Nim’s […]WORTH 12 BUCKS?: Friends With Benefits (REVIEW)
After starring in the most talked about sex scene in the award-winning and wickedly fun film Black Swan, Mila Kunis‘ lead role in the movie Friends with Benefits seemed dangerously exciting. But then again, expect to be surprised. In fact, Loquacious Friends with Benefits or even Chatter between the Sheets are more accurate titles for […]CloseSign up for our newsletter and never miss the hot storiesThank you for subscribing to Global Grind!
