Marriage Story

Marriage Story
Director: Noah Baumbach
Writer: Noah Baumbach
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, Azhy Robertson, Julie Hagerty, Merritt Wever
Distributor: Netflix
Rated R| Minutes: 136
Release Date: November 8, 2019 (Limited Theaters)| December 6, 2019 (Netflix)

Writer and director Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story is an emotionally crushing, yet very compassionate depiction of a collapsing marriage between two people and the irony of the realization that they must come together in order for them to go their separate ways. It also may be one of Baumbach’s greatest pieces of work.

Films about divorce rarely explore the heartbreak of two people who could not make it work with such honesty. But with Marriage Story, it feels raw and unnerving. The film moves like a stage play with its characters (played brilliantly by Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver) pouring out their souls for all of us to see as they go through one of the most difficult points in their lives.

Jojo Rabbit

Okay, I am just going to say it: Taika Waititi‘s Jojo Rabbit is one of the best films of the year. The anti-hate satire centers on a ten-year-old boy named Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) who has some difficulties getting through Nazi camp, and the only person who can help him with his troubles is his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Waititi). When he discovers that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) has been hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic, Jojo learns that everything he’s been told about the Jews may have been wrong.

Though the film is out in limited theaters now, Fox Searchlight has been releasing a series of clips and trailers after the film received critical acclaim from critics who viewed it at various film festivals. But this latest featurette is perhaps the best behind the scenes look at the film as it offers some insight from Waititi, as well as fellow co-stars Johansson, Sam Rockwell, and Stephen Merchant. Check out the video below.

Marriage Story

Nothing says bleak comedy like watching a marriage fall apart. And that is what we will get to see in Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story, starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson as a husband and wife pair that looks back on their past as they are going through a divorce. The film has already made the festival rounds at the Toronto Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival, where it was met with unanimous praise. And now it will be heading to limited theaters before making its wide debut on Netflix.

But before all of that can happen, the streaming service has released a new trailer that gets deeper into the characters’ story, what they stand to lose, how they are coping, and so much more. Check out the trailer below.

Jojo Rabbit

Taika Waititi is easily the busiest person in Hollywood. Sure, he directed some great indie hits like What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople before Marvel Studios signed him on to direct Thor: Ragnarok and its sequel Thor: Love and Thunder.

Now he’s behind Jojo Rabbit, which Fox Searchlight has released an official trailer for. The film will be making the festival rounds and is positioned for an awards season run this November. Not only does Waititi direct this satirical history piece, but he also stars as an imaginary best friend to a young German boy. The twist on that is that the imaginary best friend takes the form of Adolf Hitler. Check out the trailer below.

Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame marks the end of an 11-year long-form story arc and the continuation of a great comic book movie legacy. These films hold great meaning to those who have been with the franchise since 2008. So to see it all come to a fitting conclusion was a bit sad. That being said, we all know things are never meant to last forever and directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo were able to give Marvel fans the perfect capper by giving these characters we all know and love a satisfying send-off.

Now with Avengers: Endgame on 4K, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital we can keep those memories alive and watch how it all evolved starting with a billionaire playboy philanthropist. Check out my review below.

Whenever there is a divorce, there is always two sides to the story. Often times these view points don’t match up, which leads to a prolonged dispute between the two parties. And Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story will take a look at how a lovely marriage can slowly dissolve into a bitter divorce.

The upcoming Netflix film stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver as the husband and wife who have their own perspectives on what their marriage was and how it fell apart.

What directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have done is truly indescribable. It’s a true gift to the fans who have been a part of this journey since 2008. To put it simply, it is the epic conclusion to an 11-year story arc.

Filled with a wide range of emotions from joy, sorrow, laughter, and excitement, Avengers: Endgame will surely go down as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. Check out my full review below.
