Comedian Mike Birbiglia’s feature film debut as a writer/director, Sleepwalk With Me, is a fantastic film, and his sophomore effort, Don’t Think Twice, is even better. Birbiglia makes comedies about comedy about life, and the natural comparison would be to Woody Allen, a fellow New York comedian who writes and directs talky, adult-oriented comedies that are (supposed to be) metaphors for life. Full Story

The Magnificent Seven remake starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt opens next month, so the publicity machine is clicking into high gear.

I don’t want to stir sh*t up, but the teaser for Allied, the World War II movie starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, is out and Pitt & Cotillard look unbelievably gorgeous in it. It’s shades of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, when you couldn’t believe two such magnificent creatures existed at the same time, in the same place. Full Story
