Johnny Depp Gets A Failing Grade For “The Professor”

It’s kind of interesting to see Johnny Depp in a movie like this. Years ago, the A-lister would take risks in smaller fare, playing oddball characters in simple character studies. However, it has been a long time since Depp has popped up in something of that sort. So, this week’s release of The Professor marks a return to the past for the man. Unfortunately, it’s also an incredibly forgettable work with little to offer. Pleasant enough to watch, it disappears from your memory as soon as the end credits roll. What’s worse, despite giving Depp a prime opportunity to go all out, he plays it oddly low key, opting for minor drunkenness over something more extreme and, frankly, interesting. The film (formerly known as Richard Says Goodbye) is a dramedy about how a college professor deals with a cancer diagnosis. When Richard (Depp) is told he has a terminal illness,

D.J. Nash (‘A Million Little Things’ creator) on how a friend’s suicide inspired the show about coping with loss [Exclusive Video Interview]

D.J. Nash reveals that the idea for “A Million Little Things” came from a tragic personal experience. While he was working on another series, which he describes as “the worst gig of my career,” he ran into a friend on the lot and made plans for lunch. But shortly thereafter, his friend died by suicide. “I don’t think that our lunch could have saved him,” Nash continues, “but I do think, pretty much every day, that we could’ve had one more lunch.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Nash above.

After that experience Nash envisioned a series about a tight-knit group of friends whose lives are rocked when one of them (Ron Livingston) takes his own life. “It made me put things in perspective,” says Nash about the loss of his friend. “It made me realize things and look at life in a different way. So I wanted

Lorraine Warren Dies: Paranormal Investigator & Subject Of ‘The Conjuring’ Films Was 92
Lorraine Warren, a noted paranormal investigator and author who, along with her husband Ed, was the subject of James Wan’s The Conjuring films, has died. Warren died “peacefully in her sleep,” Thursday night according to Facebook posts by her grandson Chris McKinnell and The New England Society for Psychic Research.

Warren was a professed clairvoyant and a light trance medium who worked closely with her husband, who together were associated with some of the most prominent cases of hauntings and possessions. Ed Warren died in 2006.

Their cases became the inspiration for blockbuster horror films such The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, which were based on the Warrens’ real-life events. Set in Rhode Island in 1971, the 2013 film starred Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, who portrayed Warren, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Mackenzie Foy, and Joey King. Prequel Annabelle was released the following year and The Conjuring 2 in 2016. In 2013’s The Conjuring,

Movie Review – The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2019)

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot, 2019.

Written and Directed by Robert D. Krzykowski.

Starring Sam Elliott, Aidan Turner, Caitlin Fitzgerald, Larry Miller, Ellar Coltrane, Sean Bridgers, Rizwan Manji, Mark Steger, and Ron Livingston.

Synopsis:

A legendary American war veteran is recruited to hunt a mythical creature.

Less about killing Hitler and Bigfoot, writer and director Robert D. Krzykowski’s bizarre genre mashup debut feature, tantalizingly titled The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot, is first and foremost a character study of an aging World War II veteran having flashback recollections of the all-important heroic duty that ended up causing complications with subsequent phases and different areas of his life. It also helps that this former special operative is played by none other than all-time great character actor Sam Elliott.

‘The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot’ Review

Stars: Aidan Turner, Sam Elliott, Sean Bridgers, Ron Livingston, Caitlin FitzGerald, Ellar Coltrane, Larry Miller, Rizwan Manji, Mark Steger, Anastasia Tsikhanava | Written and Directed by Robert D. Krzykowski

With a title like The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot, people going to see this movie will probably be expecting something very strange. And that’s kind of what you get but in a different way than you might think.

I will say it immediately, this is not a ridiculous B-movie that the title may suggest. It has one moment or scene in particular that goes down that route but that is it. This is much more serious than I expected and a good chunk of the movie is spent focusing on a love story between the ‘man’, Calvin Barr (played by Aidan Turner in his younger years and Sam Elliott in his later life). The love story unfortunately

First Trailer for Dark Comedy 'The Professor' Starring Depp & DeWitt

"Are you alright?" "Well... no." Saban Films has debuted the official trailer for an indie drama titled The Professor, the second feature from writer/director Wayne Roberts (Katie Says Goodbye). Johnny Depp stars in this as a world-weary college professor diagnosed with a terminal illness who throws caution to the wind and indulges in numerous vices while attempting to live his life to the fullest. It's described as a dark comedy and has an impressive ensemble cast with Rosemarie DeWitt, Ron Livingston, Zoey Deutch, Danny Huston, Justine Warrington, Siobhan Fallon Hogan, Kaitlyn Bernard, Odessa Young, and Matreya Scarrwener. This seems like an odd role for Depp to take, but he's been staying out of the spotlight anyway, so why not an indie film. Just doesn't look that great.

Will Sasso & Christina Vidal To Star In ‘United We Fall’ ABC Comedy Pilot

Will Sasso & Christina Vidal To Star In ‘United We Fall’ ABC Comedy Pilot
Exclusive: Loudermilk‘s Will Sasso and Christina Vidal (Training Day) are set as leads opposite Jane Curtin in United We Fall, ABC’s multicamera family comedy from Making History creator Julius Sharpe, Seth Gordon, Sony Pictures TV and ABC Studios.

Written by Sharpe and directed by Mark Cendrowski, United We Fall is a profoundly realistic, multicultural sitcom that shows how, when two people, Bill (Sasso) and Jo (Vidal) with young children and overzealous extended families truly love each other, barely anything is possible.

Sasso’s Bill is a confident, analytical yet funny and emotional father and husband. Bill and his wife, Jo, both have college degrees, great careers, and a solid, loving marriage. However, since having their second kid, they can barely make it out the door. He tries to hold it together because he loves his family more than anything, and, deep down, he knows his wife is slightly

The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot

The man who did what and then what? Robert D. Krzykowski’s first feature isn’t a throwaway joke, but an elegantly crafted and designed fantasy grounded in human values. Sam Elliott’s crusty sixty-something secret agent comes out of retirement to save the world again — will the slaying of another bizarre horror lay to rest disturbing memories of a secret WW2 mission? This thing will be a pleasant discovery for those in pursuit of ‘something completely different.’ The intentionally awkward title is jarring, but it fits because I’ve never seen anything quite like this before.

‘Office Space’ 20th Anniversary: Read the Full Q&A Moderated by Richard Linklater
Office Space” celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and those Tps reports are still missing. To mark the occasion, Richard Linklater moderated a Q&A session with Mike Judge, Ron Livingston, Gary Cole, David Herman, and Ajay Naidu hosted by the Austin Film Society. The full transcript of their talk has been shared exclusively with IndieWire, and if you could read it by the end of the day, that’d be great:

Richard Linklater: How awesome was this, people, to watch this beautiful 35mm print with these guys here?

Applause.

Richard: I just wanted to ask each of you, I’m just curious, when was the last time you saw the film with an audience in its entirety like this? And what do you make of it? You have an interesting perspective having done it, how is it aging in your perception? When did you realize what it was becoming?
