The League Taco Pete Andre Jenny Kevin Ruxin Banner

The League
Season 6 Episode 1 “Sitting Shiva”
Directed by Jeff Schaefer
Written by Jackie Marcus Schaefer and Jeff Schaefer
Starring Katie Aselton, Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, Stephen Rannazzisi, Paul Scheer, and Jonathan Lajoie
FXX
Release Date: September 3, 2014

Describing an episode of The League to friends who don’t watch it makes you seem like an immoral, depraved, sexually deviant, sports crazy psychopath. In others words, it’s freaking hilarious. For five seasons, the comedy about a group of friends obsessed with fantasy football has pushed the boundaries of decency way off the proverbial cliff. Last season, the show’s first on the new FXX network, continued to find new and ridiculous ways for our heroes to squeeze life into their fantasy football schedules. Let’s review where our characters left off in season five.

SXSW 2014 Review: Creep

Creep SXSW bannerCreep
Director: Patrick Brice
Cast:Mark Duplass, Patrick Brice
World Premiere | Blumhouse Productions
Not Rated | 80 Minutes
Release Date: March 8, 2014

Looking for work, Aaron (Patrick Brice) comes across a cryptic online ad: “$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated.”

Low on cash, Aaron drives to a cabin in a remote mountain town where he meets Josef (Mark Duplass), his video subject for the day. Josef is nice enough – even if he is a little weird – and the project seems sincere, so Aaron grabs his gear and begins to shoot. As the day goes on, however, it becomes clear that Josef is not who he says.

That’s the basic setup for Creep, Brice’s directorial debut, which is produced by Duplass and Jason Blum (Insidious, Sinister). Creep is an intense, disturbing, and hilarious piece of work, combining elements of found footage with the naturalistic, improvised dialogue of mumblecore.

Melissa McCarthy stars in Ben Falcone's Tammy

Road trip comedies aren’t entirely original, although the characters try to make each and every adventure their own. Melissa McCarthy will be starring in her very own road trip comedy, directed by her husband, Ben Falcone. In it, McCarthy plays as a recently fired fast food employee who finds out that her husband has been cheating on her, and her only method of coping is to go on a road trip with her grandmother (Susan Sarandon).

Again, not completely original, but the star power is there, which give us some hope that it will be at least a mild success. Hit the jump to see the trailer.

Famous Monster’s Favorite Film Quotes of 2012

Film Quotes of 2012

2012 was a fantastic year for movies. Films like The Dark Knight Rises and Marvel’s The Avengers entertained audiences with blockbuster action sequences and the ultimate in childhood wish fulfillment, while movies such as Drew Goddard‘s Cabin in the Woods and Gareth Edward‘s The Raid: Redemption will long be remembered as putting the nail in the coffin of their respective genres.

We saw new films from acclaimed directors like Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Ang Lee, David O. Russell, Paul Thomas Anderson, William Friedkin, Steven Soderbergh, Ben Affleck, Sam Mendes, and Kathryn Bigelow. Not to mention the latest offerings from Rian Johnson, Joss Whedon, Richard Linklater, and newcomers Colin Trevorrow, Benh Zeitlin, and Stephen Chbosky.

So many memorable characters – so many great lines delivered by talented actors inhabiting their roles. Here are some of the best (and a few of the worst) film quotes from 2012. Feel free to include your own in the comments! You can also check out my Top 25 Films of 2012 here!

Movie Review: Your Sister’s Sister

Your Sister's Sister PosterYour Sister’s Sister
Directed by Lynn Shelton
Written by Lynn Shelton
Starring Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt, Mark Duplass, Mike Birbiglia
IFC Films
Rated R | 90 Minutes
Release Date: June 29, 2012

In her new film, Your Sister’s Sister, Sundance award-winning filmmaker Lynn Shelton explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships with off-the-cuff humor and intimate authenticity.

Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed, The League) stars as Jack who, a year after his brother’s death, is still emotionally struggling and lost in life. He takes up an offer from his friend (and dead brother’s ex-girlfriend) Iris (Emily Blunt) to stay at her father’s isolated cabin to seek comfort and catharsis in solitude.

Upon arriving at the cabin, Jack meets Iris’ sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt), who is reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship. The two bond over a long night of drinking and swapping stories, a sequence entirely improvised by Duplass and DeWitt. As it usually does, the drinking leads to spontaneous, casual sex – which triggers a complicated, really awkward love triangle when Iris arrives for a surprise visit.
