Amy Schumer is having her moment. After gaining momentum with two seasons of her Comedy Central sketch show Inside Amy Schumer, she hosted the MTV Movie Awards and won over a whole new group of fans who tuned into the third season of her show (and binged on the previous two seasons), priming themselves for her first starring role in a big screen comedy.
Let’s get the big elephant out of the room right from the start: Edgar Wright and Marvel parted ways after he had spent months working on the script for Ant-Man. The fans were at a fever pitch of anticipation waiting to see where he would take the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it didn’t happen and now everyone is grousing and wondering just what Wright’s Ant-Man would have looked like. It didn’t happen, it’s not happening, so let’s move on, shall we? For the record, Wright still has a screenplay and executive producer credit, so there’s still something there of him. There is no way Marvel had time to overhaul his script completely and get the movie shot and released within their set time frame, so there is still Wright’s DNA all over the movie.
You can almost always count on Pixar to give us a great animated film, even when parent company Disney blew them out of the water with Frozen and Pixar›s own forays into Cars and Planes sequels were met with less than enthusiastic results. Many were beginning to wonder if the great story development Pixar had become famous for, spending years getting a story just right before working on a single pixel, had fallen by the wayside after the Disney acquisition and the focus on sequels. It can be argued that Pixar’s last great film was 2010’s Toy Story 3.
Young, gay, prolific, Canadian filmmaker / writer / actor Xavier Dolan is no stranger to contentious mother/son relationships in his movies. His first film, I Killed My Mother, released when he was 20 in 2009, for example, set the stage for his new movie, the astonishing Mommy (Roadside Attractions). Keep in mind that in between these films, he masterfully handled subjects ranging from a triad (2010’s Heartbeats) to transgender life (2012’s Laurence Anyways) and terror (2013’s Tom At The Farm).
Any movie fan worth his weight has certainly seen Steven Spielberg's groundbreaking dinosaur movie Jurassic Park. You may have seen it on the big screen when it was released in 1993, or a few years ago when it was re-released in 3D, or on video or television. Even if you haven't seen you're probably familiar with it.
